    An Enjoyable Episode!


    This was a great deal! $15.00 for a $25.00 DVD is worth 6 full episodes of the last story to the Key to Time Series! This DVD features the final adventure of the Doctor (Tom Baker) and Romana (Mary Tamm) as they track down the final piece to the Key of Time. This time, the tracer brings the Doctor and Romana to the planet Atrios during the last days of an ongoing nuclear war with its neighborhoring planet Zeos. The Doctor must find the final piece before Atrios is destroyed. But the Atrian princess, Astra, has a secret that could mean the success or failure of the Doctor's mission to complete the Key and return it to the White Guardian. And what about the Black Guardian? It seems he's finally taken action and sent his lackies to recover the Key at any cost. Who will get the Key to Time and where is the final piece? You'll have to watch it and find out! There are lots of great one-liners (particularly from Tom Baker and K9!) and some great humor and surprises around every corner! If you are an avid Doctor Who fan who loves the Tom Baker stories, this one is a must buy!

    It's nice to go back and watch Tom Baker's Doctor. This is where I first started watching Doctor Who and Tom Baker will always be the first Doctor to me. The story line and special effects are just as corny as I remembered them to be. It was a low budget TV show and although I love watching the newer versions of the Doctor they just can't take the place of the older versions. I would recommend this DVD set to any Doctor Who fans.
