The Time Lords discover that the Master has stolen their secret file on the Doomsday Weapon and decide to send the Doctor to retrieve it for them. The TARDIS takes the Doctor and Jo to the desolate planet Uxarieus in the year 2472. There they become involved in a dispute between some beleaguered colonists and the crew of an Interplanetary Mining Corporation (IMC) spaceship over the ownership rights to the planet. The Doctor learns that the indigenous Primitives and their High Priests worship a large machine tended by a creature called the Guardian.

Doctor who

Colony in Space was the 4th Master story in a Master-full season, this story features Jon Pertwee's first off-world adventure in the TARDIS since The War Games, it's a 6-parter and as such, this story does suffer from a little padding, but only a little. As stated above, this is Jon Pertwee's first trip into space as the third doctor, also note that this is the first time Jo Grant ventures into the mysterious blue box, as she enters, the usual words come to mind {bigger on the inside}. However, she displays genuine fear that the Doctor was actually telling the truth about being an ancient alien Time Lord who travels around in time and space in a police box. The relationship between the Doctor and Jo definately strengthens throughout the story as she comes to terms with the reality of the situation. This is played very well by Katy Manning. Shame really, the Master is introduced in the fourth episode and was only brought in to keep the story running for another couple of episodes. I.M.C. is a great evil-corporation villain and really brings a sense of danger to proceedings. Caldwell is brilliantly played by Bernard Kay in his last apperance in Doctor Who. Generally, Colony in Space is a brilliant start to Jon Pertwee's "mission for the Time-Lords" series of stories. Now then, on to the DVD, yet again the BBC, 2-Entertain and the restoration team have done a wonderful job in restoring this classic serial for DVD, it is a budget 1 disc release and is light on special features but does the job admirably, the documentary I.M.C. needs you is a typical making of doc about the production, but, as usual I find these things very interesting and find they add to the experience of the feature itself. Please note that because the master tapes were wipped by the BBC for reuse in the 1970s, the episodes have been returned from canada, the picture is not as great as stories with masters held in England, but it does not detract from the programme. All in all, Colony in Space is a fine edition to an ever growing selection of Doctor Who DVD's being released now-a-days, so go ahead and order this Pertwee classic and enjoy some vintage haircuts. Story - 9/10 DVD - 9/10 Features - 7/10 All in all GREAT STUFF.

Classic Pertwee

This is a great example of mid-Pertwee with a strong political message, some excellent performances, a surprise appearance by an old enemy and one or two bits that are so bad they're wonderful. The DVD also has an excellent commentary with Terrance Dicks, Katy Manning, Graeme Harper and several others. Highly recommended.

colony in space

Another great dvd from the doctor who classic era range of dvds. colony in space is not always considered to be the best pertwee story. But watching this again i enjoyed the slower pace of the old series. the new series can be a bit crash bang wallop and over to quick in 45 mins. The 3rd doctor at last takes a trip in the tardis on alien planet with jo grant. nice remastered version. great comentary on dvd.so sit back and watch a classic era of doctor who.

Master-ful Mayhem

Yet another title in the Doctor Who range hits the high street - or should I say virtual high street in this day and age of online retailers - and, overall, it doesn't disappoint. Jon Pertwee's Doctor is sent on a mission by the Time Lords and does battle on an alien planet with his arch-enemy the Master (Roger Delgado) who, as usual, is out to rule the cosmos. Whilst the picture quality isn't quite up to the standard of most other colour-era releases (due to the BBC wiping the master tapes), they have still done wonders to improve it over the video release. Perhaps a couple of episodes over-long and not quite as good as certain other Pertwee tales, the story is still thoroughly watchable and thought-provoking in a sort of moralistic way that was quite common during that era of the show.
