Just finished 'The Talons of Weng-Chiang' and have to say it's my favorite Baker serial yet. |
Well acted, well written, intelligent, frightening and campy. Louise Jameson is awesome as the Zena-like female warrior. Especially being in proper Victorian era when women were seen as delicate, passive creatures. Of course it's a little politicaly incorrect but awesome none the less.
The normally bare boned budget sets and cheesy special effects are not obvious in this one. The show must have had a bigger budget for this story?
