Doctor Who The Peladon Tales DVD

Available to order from www.Amazon.co.uk

Two classic Doctor Who adventures set on the planet of Peladon, starring Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor, with Katy Manning as his companion in the first story and Elisabeth Sladen in the second.

In the four-parter The Curse of Peladon (1972), the Doctor (Pertwee) finally seems to have escaped his exile to Earth when he manages to transport Jo (Manning) in the Tardis to the planet Peladon.

The pair are mistaken for Earth delegates at a conference to decide whether Peladon should join the Galactic Federation, and discover that someone is attempting to use the legendary royal beast of Aggador to trigger off a war.

In the six-parter The Monster of Peladon (1974), the Tardis arrives on the Planet of Peladon half a century after the Doctor’s first visit. The planet has now become of great tactical importance because of its focal position between warring factions. The Doctor and Sarah (Elisabeth Sladen) have to act as peacekeepers between rival ambassadors and they must also find the truth behind ‘the spirit’.

Released 4th January 2010

This story includes the Ice Warriors and Alpha Centauri.

    Boxset is really good, I’ve got it!!! Although I wish it could happen, hope the NuWho production team don’t think about another Peladon story. They’ve mucked up the Cybermen, Silurians, Sontarans…..etc.:mad:

    i have had this for some time now since it was released at new year(ish) and can say if you don’t have it, get it. curse of peladon is one of the hilights of the pertwee era and the monster of peladon is a brilliant sequal, but you know what they say, the sequal is never as good as the original.

    It’s an odd picture of Pertwee that they’ve chosen for the box.
