Doctor Who Serial 073 – The Monster of Peladon

Welcome back to Peladon, with your favourite guest star Giant Swaying Screeching Eyeball! Last time, Peladon was petitioning for admission to the Federation, this time they’re well established members of the Federation. The king’s daughter is now sitting on the throne.

The miners on Peladon are being haunted by their god who is killing them. Scaring them into abandoning their plans to further mine. The Doctor shows up and is assumed to be the cause of all this.

The Doctor must figure out the mystery of this monster, when political intrigue gets in the way.

Is it good? Meh, it’s alright. Not terrible, but not great. It’s annoying, but I can live with that. Once again Doctor Who is victim of its own classism, sexism and adoration of monarchy.
