Sequel to The Curse of Peladon only really gets going in the episodes 5 and 6
18 November 2014 | by A_Kind_Of_CineMagicSee all my reviews

Review of all 6 episodes:

This is a sequel to The Curse of Peladon and it suffers from being far too similar, but inferior, to its predecessor. The quality of acting and dialogue are at a high enough level (as is expected as a minimum requirement in Doctor Who) and the plot with its political aspect reflecting the UK miners strike of the 1970s is OK but it is a filler story, just plodding along until it kicks into life for its 5th and 6th episodes.

The Doctor and Sarah Jane visit Peladon about 50 years after The Doctor's previous visit. There is political strife and mysterious attacks, apparently from the creature Aggedor, that are disrupting mining operations.

It is an acceptable story but nothing of particular quality or interest compared to the usual standard of the series until the arrival of the Ice Warriors. It is in the final two episodes of the story when the action and script become much more interesting. The leader of this group of Ice Warriors is an interesting and good quality villain. Pertwee is funny and entertaining and Sarah continues to show she is the best companion of all time, even in this general filler of a story.
