Doctor Who Invasion of Time

Originally screened in 1977, Doctor Who Invasion of Time stars the delightful Tom Baker as our good hero in this 6-part classic has the Doctor joining forces with darkness.

It begins with the Doctor making a deal with a strange race of aliens known as the Vardans in order to gain dominance on Gallifrey, the planet of Time Lords. Tom Baker once again makes the show quite entertaining and has always been my favourite actor to play the doctor.

The series contains some classic Doctor Who moments such as the Doctor ordering K9 to keep Leela (Louise Jameson), his companion away so that his plans are not discovered. Even today, an angry Tom Baker is a sight to be remembered and feared.

Without spoiling this classic story, the Doctor attempts to usurp power on Gallifrey as Leela leads the resistance to prevent the planet to be overrun by the Vardans and the Sontarans.

Doctor Who Invasion of Time features your traditional Doctor Who BBC special effects that at times is quite laughable but one cannot help but feel at one with the superb acting and great locales in this current storyline that easily immerses you into this wondrous universe.

The special features of this DVD are great and features commentary by Louise Jameson, Matt Irvine (Script Editor) and John Leeson (K9) who brilliant steps back into this unique character. With a variety of other special features, the distributors have once again gone above and beyond but at the end of the day, this is definitely a disc for Doctor Who fans only.
