For many of us Jon Pertwee's incarnation of the Doctor took the series in a new direction, with his Tardis license revoked by the Time Lords, he hardly ever left the earth. Whilst this made entertaining viewing and meant that UNIT and the Bridadier would be part of the series, many of us longed for the space and time adventures of old. In this his final appearance as the 'dandy' Doctor, Pertwee does get to travel thorugh time and space, he faces a race of intelligent spiders in order to free a world of humans from slavery, ultimately losing his life in the process.
This story is remarkable, for many reasons, mainly that it proves how good Pertwe was in the role and proves yet again that a series can go from strength to strength when the lead character returns with a new face, mannerisms and quirky demeanor.
For any new Who fan that is getting interested by the new series I reccomend reviewing titles like this to get a feel for the series and for any fans who don't already own this, get your credit card out and buy it. You won't be sorry.

In my humble opinion, the special effects in this drama series are quite good for its time. In that there is "atmosphere" in some of the scenes ie at the beginning, when a group of people are in the cellar to this mansion, preaching out aloud in some kind of ritual to summon one of the spiders to Earth from their planet far, far away. This is because with some of the special effects of "modern day" with regards to the most recent Doctor Who episodes are a tad on the artificial side.

"Doctor Who - Planet Of The Spiders" is well worth a look.
