I read the cover before I bought this, and it was the whole concept that intrigued me. Particularly from the end of the Peter Davison era, through the Colin Baker era of Doctor Who, there were accusations of excessive violence levelled against the show. So, this episode seemed to be a response to that, the Doctor needing to land on a planet that was entertained by gratuitous violence.
“How would the Doctor handle it?” – I wondered. Without spoiling the plot, I wonder if the BBC took notice, because their solution for Doctor Who itself was not too dissimilar.
There are better Doctor Who episodes to buy, but if you love Colin Baker, and Peri (Nicola Bryant), then by all means, go for it.
