The Caves of Androzani DVD

Story

Arriving on the barren world of Androzani minor, the Doctor and Peri find themselves embroiled in a long-running underground war.
Military troops mount an armed blockade whilst gunrunners bring in weapons for the sinister, masked renegade, Sharaz Jek. Meanwhile, lethal androids guard the caves, and a deadly creature lurks in the shadows, killing all in its path. At the heart of the conflict is a substance called Spectrox - the most valuable item in the universe... and the deadliest!
The very presence of the Doctor and Peri on Androzani sets in motion a chain of events that will have dramatic consequences for everyone involved. As the situation gets even more desperate, the Doctor realises time is running out - both for Peri and himself.
Will the Doctor make the ultimate sacrifice to save his young friend's life?

A well paced four-parter with some excellent direction, costumes and make-up. Some first class acting from both Peter Gabriel and outgoing Doctor, Peter Davison. This adventure of the fifth Doctors contains some delightful one liners from Davison and I feel it's a shame we didn't get to see more of this in more of his ear.

Some lovely extras also appear on this disc, some great insight from Peter Gabriel in the 'Creating Sharaz Jek' featurette, it would have been nice to see him record a commentary for this release but due to his untimely death we miss out on this.

WELL WORTH THE PURCHASE!
