3.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who from 1985., 5 Jan. 2001
This review is from: Doctor Who Vengeance on Varos [1985] [VHS] [1963] (VHS Tape)
The story starts with Stephen Yardley and his wife watching a virtually naked Jason Connery (son of Sean) being constrained by chains and tortured by lasers. Colin Baker's Doctor and Peri arrive on this disturbing planet, rescue the poor young man and find themselves on the run from the planet's authorities.
The storyline is strong enough, the populace entertained by sick television entertainment was quite prophetic ... and the adventure is at quite a fast pace. The problems are that Colin Baker is still difficult to like as the Doctor (although this is one of his better performances) and the sets belong in the seventies, not in the eighties. The guest stars include Stephen Yardley (as I mentioned earlier) and Martin Jarvis but the acting honours go to Nabil Shaban. Certainly worth watching if you haven't seen it before, but the previous adventure 'Attack of the Cybermen' was better.
