Arriving on the barren world of Androzani Minor, the Doctor and Peri find themselves embroiled in a long-running underground war.
Military troops mount an armed blockade whilst gunrunners bring in weapons for the sinister, masked renegade, Sharak Jek. Meanwhile, lethal androids guard the caves, and a deadly creature lurks in the shadows, killing all in its path. At the heart of the conflict is a substance called Spectrox - the most valuable item in the universe ... and the deadliest!
The very presence of the Doctor and Peri on Androzani sets in motion a chain of events that will have dramatic consequences for everyone involved. As the situation gets even more desperate, the Doctor realises time is running out - both for Peri and himself.
Will the Doctor make the ultimate sacrifice to save his young friend's life ... ?
Arguably, no-one knew more about writer for 'Doctor Who' than Robert Holmes, and his first script for the series in nearly five years clearly demonstrates his pedigree.
Razor-sharp dialogue proliferates, and Peter Davison certainly plays to the script's strengths, giving a final performance that allows the fifth Doctor to depart on a real high.
Director Graeme Harper's enthusiasm for the story is apparent, allowing him to demonstrate an ability to bring the script visually to life in a way that few mastered, whilst assembling a guest cast that injects a sense of reality and vitality to the story.
The Caves of Androzani truly deserves its status as one of the series' all-time classics ...
