The Caves Of Androzani Part One Examined

Examining The Doctor #33: The Caves Of Androzany Part One

1984 was a pivotal year for Doctor Who. It saw not only the departure of three companions but the departure of The Fifth Doctor himself, Peter Davison. Thankfully Davison’s swansong was an epic tale worthy of a regeneration story.

The Doctor and newfound companion Peri find themselves on the barren planet of Androzani Minor and are quickly mistaken for gunrunning terrorists. The Doctor is quick to learn that there’s more than meets the eye on this planet, and he and Peri soon find themselves facing certain death in the name of a political struggle.
