Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jeffrey Iorio
There’s a reason why Doctor Who became the longest-running science fiction series of all time. More than anything, the show continually delivered sharp writing and mind-bending plotlines. The Caves of Androzani is no exception and is widely considered to be one of the finest installments in the series’ history. The episode, which marks the final appearance of Peter Davison as the Time Lord he was the fifth of eight, involves a search for Spectrox, a life-prolonging drug at the center of a civil war on the planet Androzani. As Doctor Who and his companion, Peri Nicola Bryant, attempt to decipher Androzani’s myriad mysteries, they become embroiled in a race against time to escape a fatal disease they’ve picked up along the way. The final scene, the regeneration that brings us the sixth Doctor Who, is one of the show’s most talked about moments. For the uninitiated, Caves is a perfect introduction to the world of Who. And for diehards, it’s a nostalgic trip through science fiction’s most well traveled time machine.

    A reviewer

    I know I stand within the majority when I admit that I think this is Peter Davison's shining moment as the Doctor. Don't get me wrong, I love his entire run (He's who I think of when I think of "my" Doctor). However, it's this episode I've rewatched more than any of the others. But this episode works so well because it breaks the Doctor Who formula: the typical "Doctor shows up, is put in jeoprady, figures out who the good guys and bad guys are, sides with the good guys, defeats the bad guys, and then the Doctor travels on". This episode shatters that formula, because there is no good side-only an ever-increasing group of greedy, corrupt individuals, involved in a war in which the Doctor and Perri are helplessly swept along. Davison's performance is extrordinary.I always cite this episode when I debate those who insist on refering to him as the "bland" Doctor. He has the task of seeming courageous, defiant, vulnerable, noble, and selfless all at once and he pulls it off brilliantly. Nicola Bryant is also quite good as Perri, the Doctor's companion, and the supporting cast is universally fine. In short, I reccomend this episode to anyone who wants to understand just what all the fuss over Doctor Who is about. You will not be disappointed.

    One of the best of the series!

    For the closing story of Peter Davison's Doctor we get one of the most brilliantly executed dramas in Doctor Who since William Hartnell's years. The restoration on this is excellent, removing some camera shaking in the opening scene (you have to watch the old version to see what I mean). Everything in this story is excellent, down to the details of Sharez Jek's costume. With a nice set of extras, it makes owning this DVD even better!
