4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Ending From A Great Doctor 28 Jun 2013
Format:DVD
"The caves of Androzani" and "Eathshock" are easily Peter Davison's best stories in my opinion and what a great way to finish off the Peter Davison years with this gripping classic. I thought the story was great, the acting performances are entertaining and there were some fantastic cliffhangers, especially the ending in the first episode. Also four episodes was just right for this story, because some "Doctor who" stories do feel like they drag on a bit, but everything was spot in this story. Christopher Gable who plays the masked anti hero Sharaz Jek does a unforgettable performance which we actually do have sympathy for him and Maurice Roeves also makes an entertaining villain. Also the ending is fantastic to watch, which in my opinion it's probably one of the greatest doctor who moments and sadly this was the last great story in the classic "Doctor who" series. This was also Peter Davison's favourite story and this was voted as the second greatest "Doctor who" story in Outpost Gallifrey's poll in 2003, which the Tom Baker story "The talons of weng chiang" was number one. Overall "The caves of androzani" is well worth watching and don't let the bad effects, such as the reptillian monster put you off.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Spectrox of regeneration looms large 2 Jun 2009
Format:VHS Tape
This fan favourite from 1984 marks the final appearance of the Fifth Doctor as played by a boyishly enthusiastic Peter Davison. The Doctor and his forever whining lycra-clad companion Peri, decide to visit the planet Androzani Minor, and naturally become caught up in an interplanetary conflict; this time involving a valuable commodity known as Spectrox. Hideously disfigured rebel Sharaz Jek and his android replicants have taken over the Spectrox mines, but the military, under orders from ruthless politician Morgus, are locked in a grim battle with Jek in order to quash the uprising.
The Doctor's sixth sense alerts him to the danger, but of course he still blithely drags his young companion into an adventure that will prove fatal for at least one of them...

Like many long-time fans of Doctor Who I think that this story is excellent; fast-paced, well acted, exciting, and containing moments of real pathos; Professional dancer Christopher Gable is superb as the rebel leader Sharaz Jek, who in the style of the reclusive Phantom of the Opera, skulks in his underground lair growing more and more insane every hour; while his androids attempt to infiltrate the enemy camp and destroy it from within. Of course, after 25 years these episodes still look dated; however like the show's best serials, it transcends the budgetary limitations and costume deficiencies with a strong cast (as well as Gable we have John Normington as Morgus, Robert Glenister - brother of Philip - as Salateen, and Maurice Roeves as mercenary Stoltz); great direction from Graeme Harper, and an intense and claustrophobic atmosphere.

This serial is now available on DVD, and with a better picture and host of extras, I recommend you go for that instead.
