"The Sunmakers" is an overlooked bit of fun from Graham Williams' first season as producer. Overshadowed by the last gothic horrors of "Horror of Fang Rock" and "Image of the Fendahl", and the low-budget reputations of "Invisible Enemy" and "Underworld", it can get forgotten. Certainly this is another cut-price planet, but then budgets were considerably lower than during the previous years and inflation too was biting. How appropriate then that this story is not about fighting insane computers or evil godlike entities, but instead deals with a more recognisable evil - money. It's a refreshing take to see a society being suffocated by economic greed and taxation, and though Robert Holmes' satirical jabs veer the story away from realism at points (P45, etc), it's still fun. Yes it is another case of the Doctor arriving on an oppressed planet and in just four episodes there is full-scale revolution, and yes the planet is rather drab - but then that is surely the point on a tax-obsessed joyless world. In among the humour there's a surprisingly dark bite (people thrown off high buildings by cheering crowds; execution by hot steam), and Baker and Jameson were a strong team. Glad it isn't being stuck out in a silly themed box-set as was originally intended though.
