This review is from: Doctor Who - Kamelion Tales Box Set: The King's Demons / Planet of Fire [DVD] (DVD)
Two of the more-average Peter Davison stories, both still have merit, but under-use their potential. 'The King's Demons' is a wonderful production and its production values lend themselves well to a longer story - which might perhaps have given more reason for the Master's nutty actions and motives here. The extras are interesting documentaries about 11th-century Britain and appealed to me greatly. 'Planet of Fire' receives an unnecessary re-editing into feature length, with average new CGI-effects and some appallingly-shot new scenes. It's a better story in its original format, and surprisingly ambitious for its time and place. It doesn't particularly feel like a regular Davison story - it feels like a contemporary comic from Doctor Who magazine. Turlough leaves, his back-story finally answered, even though it was, oddly, barely-raised during his tenure, and Nicola Bryant makes an unforgettable debut as the gorgeous Peri Brown. It's a shame she and Davison never had more on-screen time. The Lanzarote location is fantastic, but seems equally well-achieved in the next story shot locally in a quarry!
