Doctor Who - Time and the Rani product reviews

Featuring Sylvester McCoy as the newly regenerated seventh Doctor, this new DVD features the Doctor's battle with the evil Rani.

After being attacked by the Rani, the TARDIS crash-lands on the planet Lakertya. On the floor of the console room, the Doctor begins his sixth regeneration. In his post-regenerative confusion the Doctor is separated from his young companion Mel and tricked into assisting the Rani in her megalomaniac scheme to construct a giant time manipulator.

Lost on the barren surface of the planet, Mel has to avoid the Rani's ingenious traps and her monstrous, bat-like servants, the Tetraps. She joins forces with a rebel faction among the Lakertyans, desperate to end the Rani's control of their planet. The Doctor must recover his wits in time to avoid becoming a permanent part of the Rani's plan to collect the genius of the greatest scientific minds in the Universe...

As an old school Doctor Who fan I can only sing praises for the classics.

Couple the rich story lines, and garish costumes with the eccentricities of The Doctor and you are in for a treat. Although 'Time and the Rani' is made in the late 80's, the special effects are still on par for the time.

I would recommend this for anyone who is new to the world of Doctor Who, however I would suggest either starting at the beginning (William Hartnell, 1963), or jumping to the later series (Christopher Ecclestone, 2005 and onwards).

A great series to follow for most ages, young and old.
