Up to no good as usual, the Master steals from the Time Lords a secret file on the Doomsday Weapon. In his attempt to retrieve it, the good Doctor finds himself on an alien planet. As if that's not disorienting enough, he and his trusty associate Jo are caught in the midst of a territorial dispute between peaceful colonists and the Interplanetary Mining Corporation. Plenty of intergalactic goings-on to delight true-and new-Who fans. Over 1 hour. VHS.

Review:

Somewhat mistitled, the "Colony in Space" of this John Pertwee adventure is actually on the barren colony world Uxarieus. A group of settlers are struggling to make crops grow when an Interplanetary Mining Corporation team led by Morris Perry, effective as an official with the mind of a Nazi bureaucrat, arrives to claim the planet. Despite the sometimes-laughable production values and a few gaping holes in the plot, Malcolm Hulke's script contains enough intrigue and incident to keep the whole thing moving briskly for six episodes. "Colony in Space" was significant for being the Third Doctor's first adventure away from Earth, fitting into the eighth season after "The Claws of Axos." Though less celebrated than "The Demons," this is an entertaining adventure and a reminder of just how much Doctor Who reflected the radical politics of 1970s British sci-fi. --Gary S. Dalkin
