When a strange message pod turns up at UNIT HQ, the Doctor and his assistant Jo suddenly find themselves involved in another dangerous mission for the Time Lords. The TARDIS takes them to Skybase One above the inhospitable Solos. It is the 30th century and the planet is about to gain independence from Earth’s glorious empire. But someone on Solos has other plans and, alarmingly, the natives are slowly mutating into fierce-looking creatures. It’s time for the Doctor and Jo to find out why...

Jon Pertwee's Doctor is sent by the Time Lords to deliver a mysterious sealed container to an unknown recipient. So begins The Mutants, the penultimate adventure in the ninth series of Doctor Who (1972), a run that also included The Sea Devils and The Day of the Daleks. The Doctor and Jo (Katy Manning), find themselves on a space station belonging to Earth's crumbling 30th-century empire, while below the planet Solos is on the verge of independence, a situation the corrupt Marshal (Paul Whitsun-Jones) is at pains to avert. What follows is a tale of opposing factions, assassination, genetic mutations and running around in caves. The story concerns the aftermath of empire, a topic very relevant in the Britain of 1972, and the devastating environmental effects of industrial development (though with the ecology movement then gathering force, the following year's The Green Death addressed similar topics far more effectively).
There are plenty of elements packed into The Mutants, yet the story feels padded and, the mutant costumes apart, is not helped by weak production values. Though far from a classic, this is still an entertaining Doctor Who adventure with Geoffrey Palmer in a small supporting role and a startling homage to the Monty Python "It's" man. The video quality is variable, not because of a tape fault but due to the source material. --Gary S Dalkin -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

There are no utterly-lost Pertwee adventures (technical issues still affect the future DVD release of classics like Ambassadors of Death, Mind of Evil, The Daemons and The Dinosaur Invasion, for now), but critical cold-shouldering means The Mutants is in some ways the closest we come to such a creature. It's shaping up as a vintage year for Pertwee fans, with Terror of the Autons, a revised Day of the Daleks and Three Doctors, plus swansong Planet of the Spiders, all in the DVD pipeline, but these we know and love. For many, the rummy six-parter presented here is undiscovered country and, coupled with unavoidable low expectations, means pleasant surprised lie ahead.
It's got a loose, relaxed, undercooked (but sometimes overheated) feel, and unfolds in a charmingly offhand manner, developments seeming to surprise the cast as much as the viewer in a way that keeps the adventure effervescent and wards off typical six-parter fatigue.
The lead himself is in fine form (and has the third Doctor even looked quite so swankily third-Doctor-ish?).Read more ›
In this story, we have a blend of actors from all area of the UK who acted with great pathos especially from another Welsh Hammer Horror Actor John Hollis who played Hermit Scientist Sondergaard, Northerners James Mellor who portrays Solos Warlord Chief Varnon and Christopher Coll as Security Chief Stubbs to the overseas actors, please step forward Canadian Actor Garrick Hagon as Ky, the Solon Rebel who wants the Earthlings or the `Overlords' to stop bombing and polluting Solos with evil chemicals created by Professor Jaegar played by Polish actor George Pravada to Stubb's pal and fellow Security Guard Cotton played with great easy by West Indian actor Rick James. There is some reviewers said that Rick James's acting wasn't up to scratch, but in my personal view, this could have been Rick's first acting job, and he could have been nerves could have been on his mind acting with more experienced actors, but despite that it still an outstanding story, so I award this a full `five' stars.
But one thing, I would love to see the completed version of Tom Baker's Doctor Who 1979 unfinished and incomplete adventure `Shada'.Read more ›
