Education for Leisure,

This review is from: Doctor Who: The Leisure Hive [DVD] (DVD)
Yes, this serial has its flaws: Tom Baker was getting on, was clearly tired in the role, and needed to move on. On top of this, he and Lalla Ward had married but weren't getting on, so the studio atmosphere was probably pretty tense too. The plot is pretty thin, and the revamped titles weren't to everyone's taste. However, this review is not for the serial but for this DVD, which is nicely packaged, competitively priced and stocked with great extras. The best of these include: 'A New Beginning', with the previously elusive Tom Baker on fine form; 'From Avalon to Argolis', opinions of cast and crew with some catty remarks from certain quarters, and 'Synthesizing Starfields', a look at the new titles and theme music. On top of this there is a fun clip from a 1980 Blue Peter programme, and a nice little Easter Egg.
