The Davison era phase-out continues on Planet Of Fire, which is more or less a wrapping up regarding two companions and the introduction of the most voluptuous companion to ever grace the series. And in my Arc of Infinity review, I made the mistake of saying it was the second of three stories made in a foreign location. This is actually the third one, set in Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands, a hop or two away from Morocco, which makes The Two Doctors the fourth foreign-made story--sorry, mea culpa.
A distress call from Earth is picked up by the TARDIS. Turlough recognizes it as a Trion signal and cuts it off. He really has a lot to play in this story because his origins are finally revealed. While in the TARDIS, he spots Peri, a young American girl drowning in the sea around Lanzarote, and rescues her. He lays her down in a spare bedroom, only to find among her belongings a metal artifact with two overlapping triangles, a design that matches a brand on his left arm.
That brand is also found on the Chosen One on the volcanic desert planet Sarn, currently torn between those who believe in Logar, Lord of the Fire Mountain, and unbelievers who think Logar is a myth. Things are more tolerant than before, when Unbelievers were cast into the fires. Malkon, a young man who's the current Chosen One, thinks that it's right to doubt, whereas the Chief Elder and his mentor Timanov thinks it's "still a wise precaution to send the occasional free-thinker to the flame." When the young man says he lacks the faith to condemn anyone, his mentor tells him "accept what you see and hear and feel all around you. The faith will come."
But it's also a time of testing, as an eruption of the Fire Mountain is imminent.

Well, Planet of Fire has many things going for it. First it does'nt feature Tegan - which gives Peter Davison's Doctor a chance to actually seem intelligent - and yes Peri in the swimsuit might just encourage male viewers. Just as a note this story also acts as a swansong for Kamileon - a little-seen robotic companion first seen in "The King's Demons"

As I have stated Peter Davison was not a very good Doctor till the end. This is his next to last episode and he play the Doctor great. Its unfortunate he was never allowed to play the Doctor the way he really wanted. This story is the beginning of the end for Davison. He says goodbye to Turlough a long running companion and hello to Peri. Peri may have been a little annoying but boy did she have a nice body. Davison gives a great performance as the Doctor. the story is cleverly designed with the master once again trying to get the best of the Doctor at the expense of some poor civilization. The chamelion thing was poorly used but the story keeps you on your seat all the time. If you want to see the way Peter Davison wanted and should have played trhe Doctor then get this episode. The site of Peri in a bikini is worth the trouble as well.

It wasn't the same without Tegan, that is for sure! Peri..God they could have picked a better actress. First of all, the actress is not at all American, and she had to concentrate so hard on keeping her accent hidden, she blew off her acting throughout her time on the TARDIS. Made you think: Why didn't they just pick an actual American, just like they picked a real Australian to play the Australian air hostess Tegan. And seeing Peri in that bathing suit was just nasty and to base the whole show on that is just bad. Peter Davison was great as always and it surprised me to catch myself teary eyed to see Turlough go. Once again we get to see the Master played by the master himself, Anthony Ainley, and he's in trouble the whole entire story. The story itself was extremely good, but it's always going to be odd for me since Tegan has and will always be my favorite female companion. I never was a Nicola Bryant fan and probably never will be and once again, I need to make it clear that she was not the best choice for the role and she makes the episodes a little cheesy. But Davison, Ainley, and Strickson are marvelous!
