Jon Pertwee - The final curtain,
This review is from: Doctor Who - Planet of the Spiders [DVD]  (DVD)Planet of Spiders is a classic Doctor Who story that has I think rightly earned a place in the hearts of fans of the classic Dr Who serials. Jon Pertwee is at his best and gives one of his most memorbale performances as the Doctor. Elisabeth Sladen, Nicholas Courtney, Richard Franklin and Jon Levene as usual provide the superb supporting cast. This is Jon's last trip as the Doctor. one is aware of that from the start.The story is moving, especially the regeneration scene at the end, where the Doctor rasps as he collapses into Sarah's arms 'The TARDIS brought me home.' UNIT and the 3rd Doctor are inextricably linked, this is a brilliant homage to those five excellent.
The DVD extras are as usual excellent. with the compelling story commentary from the ever enthusiastic duo of Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks.Along with stars of the show.
A DVD worth buying and worth enjoying time and time again! Planet of Spiders is worth the money you pay!
