The TARDIS materializes inside an Aztec tomb. Outside it, the Doctor and his companions soon discover that Mexico in the 15th century is a bloodthirsty and dangerous place. And with Barbara mistaken for a reincarnation of an ancient high priest called Yetaxa, the history teacher thinks that she can put an end to the barbaric human sacrifices once and for all. But can she rewrite history without disastrous consequences?. "

The TARDIS arrives in fifteenth century Mexico inside the tomb of one-time Aztec High Priest Yetaxa. The travellers become cut off from the ship when they explore the temple outside and the tomb door closes behind them. Barbara is proclaimed by the High Priest of Knowledge, Autloc, as Yetaxa's divine reincarnation. However, she incurs the enmity of the High Priest of Sacrifice, Tlotoxl, when - against the Doctor's advice - she attempts to use her new-found authority to put an end to the Aztec practice of human sacrifice. Events reach a climax on the Day of Darkness - the time of a solar eclipse. Ian's unwilling conflict with the Aztecs' 'chosen warrior', Ixta, ends in a fight in which the latter falls to his death from the temple roof. The Doctor manages to reopen the tomb door using a wheel-and-pulley that he has carved (the Aztecs not having mastered the use of the wheel) and the travellers make good their escape.

Early story and a classic
The Aztecs is the seventh ever Doctor Who story, and one of the best. When the show became stories would alternate between sci fi tales and historical tales, and this is one of the latter. The story is important for its examination of culture and the morality of changing history.

The Special Edition looks great, with lots of really great bonus features and commentaries

Doctor Who & the Aztecs
I have not seen many of the earlier Dr Who episodes from the 1960's. This Doctor is much more calculating and darker in his view of humans. He is less friendly and almost cynical. It is quite a different Doctor than the later Doctors. The sets & costumes are quite surprising considering the limited production budgets.
