3.0 out of 5 stars
A slight nostalgia trip, July 14 2010
As a 10 year-old, Black Orchid seemed to be a reasonable detour for Peter Davison's Doctor; nothing terribly exciting, but a decent mystery romp. Viewing it a couple of decades later, it's easy to see why the cast enjoys skewering it on a highly entertaining commentary track that plays like a solid episode of Mystery Science Theatre: plot holes and silly acting abound. Still, this is entertaining enough for diehard fans; others steer clear.
