The search for the fourth segment of the Key to Time takes Doctor Who (Tom Baker), his companion Romana (Mary Tamm) and his robot dog K9 (voiced by John Leeson) to the planet Tara, a planet that's still stuck in midieval times on one hand but also has androids and electronic weapons on the other. The good news is that the segment is quickly found and retrieved without a problem, the bad news is that Romana is soon enough kidnapped by evil Count Grendel (Peter Jeffrey), who needs her because she is a splitting image of Princess Strella (also Mary Tamm, naturally), while the Doctor is apprehended by good Prince Reynart (Neville Jason) and his men, who need him to repair their android splitting image of the Prince to save him from an assassination attempt during his coronation by Count Grendel and his men. The Doctor manages to repair the android, but soon enough, Grendel's men kidnap the real Reynart, and now its upon the Doctor to have the android crowned, counter Grendel's foul play at every step along the way, free Romana, the real Reynart and Princess Strella from Grendel's dungeon and set everything right on Tara again - which all culminates in a bit fencing duel between the Doctor and Grendel in the end - and wouldn't you know it, the Doctor wins ...

 

Obviously inspired by the novel The Prisoner of Zenda by Anthony Hope, The Androids of Tara is actually an enjoyable if a tad silly and not all that original blend of science fiction and midieval motives. Of course, if you watch it closely there are numerous plotpoints in the film tht simply don't make sense, but if you just take it as a mindless little romp you will find it very entertaining and slightly amusing. Plus sets and acting are very decent indeed.
