Who Review #137 - Caves of Androzani

Peter Davison's exit. Caves... is without a doubt not only my favourite of his era but also one of the very best stories in the show's history.

The excellent quality of the script, the marvellous characters and its quite adult nature owes a lot to the return of old Who favourite Robert Holmes. The acting is excellent on the whole, Roger Limb's incidental music atmospheric and amazing, the caves look sufficiently real and creepy. Just about the only thing that could be complained about is the Magma Creature; it doesn't really play much of a part and is a bad rubber suit.

Needless to say, the body count was also quite high in this story! Graeme Harper is quite gritty in his direction; he used soliloquys for some of the excellent scenes with Morgus, which are both interesting and surprising for this sort of show.
