    The Mind of Evil holds a special spot among Doctor Who fans as the only story made in color for which no color information whatsoever existed for one of its episodes. Thanks to a manual recolorization and the practically miraculous technology of chroma-dot color recovery, we now have the entire story in full color about 35 years after its last color broadcast anywhere in the world. Surprisingly dark for a Pertwee tale, The Mind of Evil has rather a lot of shocking moments and some incredibly-directed action sequences. If you're a Pertwee fan and not lucky enough to have seen it during its 1970s American broadcasts, you don't know what you're missing by not seeing this story in color.

    One of the best Pertwee Doctor stories

    "The Daemons" is easily one of the best of Jon Pertwee's turns as The Doctor. By this point in the series, "Doctor Who" had begun aiming toward a more mature audience, and this is a perfect example of a story that would appeal more to older viewers than pre-teens. Roger Delgado gives one of his archetypal performances as The Master, as well.

    A Restored Classic

    Because the BBC junked many Doctor Who recordings in the 1970s, this story, originally on color videotape, was only known from a surviving set of black&white film prints. Using a new color recovery process, this story can now be seen in full color for the first time in over 40 years!

    "The Daemons" has always been considered a classic, and with good reason - it's one of those stories where everything simply meshes together beautifully. There's not a dull moment in an action-packed, fun adventure.

    Bureaucratic stupidity and self-serving politicians create a situation the Doctor has to clean up, and a character who has been nothing but trouble gets what's coming to him.

    A nice combination of the Master, international relations, nuclear war, and mind control.
