For a very low budget unlicensed production, it's also very well done. Stick a score by Keff McCulloch on it and it could be a televised episode from 1989, if you accept that the Doctor is busy elsewhere that week.

Apparently, the granddaughter of the Yeti's creator, Mervyn Haisman, is mounting some kind of legal challenge to the release, claiming it breaches her copyright. Reeltime say she has no case.

She just wants some free money. Sad, when other people who actually have a REASON TO SUE don't sue.
