The story is very good and entertaining.

Featuring,
Peter Davison - The Doctor
Janet Fielding - Tegan Jovanka
Sarah Sutton - Nyssa
Matthew Waterhouse - Adric

(This story ranked 77th in Doctor Who Magazine's "Mighty 200" pol, published in 2009)

I would like to talk about two special features which, for me, made this DVD.

Grim Tales is very good and made me chuckle. Janet Fielding (Tegan) is so funny, especially when she is with Sarah Sutton (Nyssa) and Peter Davison (The Doctor)

The Television Centre of the Universe - Part One is also very funny. Yvette Fielding is an amazing presenter and when she is with Janet Fielding, Peter Davison and Mark Strickson, they are extremly funny!

A fantastic release.

The Doctor, Tegan, Nyssa & Adric land in 1666 (instead of 1982 to return Tegan home). In a village they find new technology, impossible to originate from earth. The Doctor then stumbles on mind controlling devices, an android disguised as death and a Terileptil prisoner, whose ship blew up in the atmosphere.

Despite an unbelievably slow Part 1, Parts 2-4 are brilliant and highly exciting on the otherhand, going incredibly quickly and unbelievably enjoyable

Thank goodness its the Visitation that gets the four part treatment and Black Orchid that gets the two-parter. Black Orchid is an insipid murder mystery that wouldn't look out of place in an Agatha Christie novel, but with all the secrets and mystery taken out. The characters are all instantly forgettable, there is very little 'Doctor Who-ness', and the only redeeming feature is Nyssa (sarah sutton) is just plain gorgeous in a dual role. Two Nyssas equals twice the beauty.
The Visitation however, is quite enjoyable. The bad guy Terileptils are a bit pathetic visually but the android is a stroke of genius and some of the closing moments are inventive and tongue-in-cheek amusing. The actor whom the Doctor befriends is a fantastic secondary with wonderful dialogue and makes the whole story worth watching. This double video is great for this episode alone but i would recommend you seek out the DVD of just the Visitation, for Black Orchid is plain rubbish.

Not as good as Tom Baker but better than those muppets Sylvester McCoy and Colin Baker.
