SEASON SEVEN

(1970)
Story No. 51

Spearhead From Space

  4 episodes, Colour
Story: A disabled TARDIS strands the newly regenerated Doctor on Earth in the early 1970's, where his alien nature is subjected to medical scrutiny at a country hospital. He soon teams up with Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart of U.N.I.T., and investigates some unusual showers of artificial meteorites. What is the connection between these objects and the bizarre living mannequins called Autons that are determined to protect them with deadly force?

- Buyers' Guide Review
- In-depth Analysis WITH SPOILERS





























"Spearhead From Space" is the only classic Doctor Who TV story shot completely on film (as opposed to the usual video tape with a few location film inserts). No real surprise that it's coming to Blu-ray. Whether or not there's enough picture detail on any other classic Doctor Who TV source material to justify a Blu-ray transfer is unclear.... The real surprise is that NONE of the extras on the DVD editions of "Spearhead from Space" will be included on this blu-ray release!

The Mutants

  6 episodes
Story: The Doctor and Jo attempt to deliver a sealed package from the Timelords to the planet Solos during the decline of Earth's galactic empire, but finding the package's true intended recipient soon becomes a nightmare. The humanoid Solosians are suffering a growing plague that turns them into hideous mutants. On the orbiting Skybase, a top-level meeting for giving Solos its independence back is disrupted violently, giving the governing Marshall an excuse to exercise and maintain his control of the region and hunt down the Mutants before the plague spreads. But have human atmospheric experiments somehow caused the plague in the first place? The Doctor has to dig deep into the history and culture (and caves) of the planet, not to mention the history of Skybase experiments and Timelord myth, to find the answers and help resolve the conflicts.
