Dr Who Meglos DVD
Dr Who Meglos DVD The Prion star system contains two habitable planets which have supported civilisations: Zolfa-Thura, a desert world devoid seemingly of life structures bar five giant screens; and Tigella, a jungle world inhabited by the humanoid, white haired Tigellans. The structure of Tigellan society is based on two castes: the scientific Savants, led by the earnest Deedrix; and the religiously fanatical Deons, led by Lexa. The latter worship the Dodecahedron, a mysterious twelve-sided crystal which they see as a gift from the god Ti. The Savants, however, have utilised its power as an energy source for their entire civilisation. The planet’s leader, Zastor, mediates between the two factions, whose tensions have grown greater as the energy source has begun to fluctuate. When Zastor’s old friend the Fourth Doctor gets in touch, the weary leader invites him back to Tigella to investigate and help. When the Doctor, Romana and K-9 try to land the TARDIS on Tigella someone intervenes, trapping them in a time bubble known as a Chronic Hysteresis Loop, causing them to repeat a small "pocket of time" over and over again. Tom Baker, in his final season and suffering a variety of personal and possibly even physical problems (depending on what stories you believe), is still a marvel in the role he was born to play. His more somber Time Lord still has a twinkle in his eye, which contrasts sharply with the subtle but significant alterations he makes in his manner when playing the megalomaniacal (well, slightly more megalomaniacal) Meglos. Even the makeup effects, while transparent in some scenes, are still effective for the era and make for a creepy doppelganger Doctor. Lalla Ward and John Leeson hold up their end as Romana and K9 respectively, but the guest cast also elevates their otherwise limited roles.
