4.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who and The Curse of Peladon, 11 May 2000
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Curse of Peladon [VHS] [1963] (VHS Tape)
This is a very good, solid programme of Doctor Who. It really descibes what goes through soneone's head when they think their nation is under threat. However it could have followed the book alittle more closer in plot. Two of the(what I think) crucial scenes missing in the film are;
1. Peladon alone in the temple of Aggedor before the Trial of Combat.
2. The Doctor's comments to King Peladon after he spares the life of the Guard Captain after the Death of Hepesh in the throne room.
It was one of the better episodes of Doctor Who. Similar to Season Two of Monkey, where some of the shows had a meaning behind them. Especially in where one is left to think,"Could there have been a better way?"(Review of Doctor Who and Silurians/Day of the Daleks)
It's an example of the twisted thinking that so often convinces us we ARE doing the right thing even by commission muder, cruelty, treason and deception.(Think about this, Does it make you a murderer to kill in self defence?)
One final point; How does Doctor Who Quiz book II get the real Earth delegates name as being Amazonia? It's not mentioned in the book or the film...
