The search for the third segment of the Key to Time takes Doctor Who (Tom Baker), his assistant Romana (Mary Tamm) and his robot dog K9 (John Leeson) to present day (well, the 1970's) earth, were they are soon dragged into a mystery that involves a Stonghenge-like stone circle called The Nine Travellers, a gang of druids led by DeVries (Nicholas McArdle) - who would like to do nothing more than to turn the good Doctor into a blood sacrifice -, and benevolent scientist Prof.Rumford (Beatrix Lehmann) and her assistant Vivien Fay (Susan Engel). What is complicated enough as it is turns out to be positively threatening though when the Doctor finds out that several stones of The Nine Travellers are actually crystalline lifeforms who like to suck blood, that Vivien Fay is actually a malevolent alien who has been living on earth for 4000 years, and that the solution to the whole mystery cannot be found on earth at all but on a spaceship hidden away in hyperspace.

Naturally, the good Doctor finds a way to take himself and Romana to that ship - but once there, he accidently destroys a seal that activates the justice machines - judges and executioners in one (and actually silly light effects voiced by Gerald Cross and David McAlister) -, who promptly condemn the Doctor to death for breaking the seal ... but the Doctor takes his defense at his trial into his own hands, and before you know it, he has turned the trial around and has exposed Vivien Fay as the wanted criminal she is and leave the justice machines with no choice but to punish her - by turning her into a stone within the Nine Travellers ... and before the machines can actually get around to executing the Doctor, he has them teleported away ...

 

A Stonehenge-like stone-circle, druids, bloodsucking stones and some fun on a spaceship in hyperspace should all make an enjoyably silly sci-fi-adventure ... and indeed, The Stones of Blood is a fun little Doctor Who-story. Of course, it's far away from being great science fiction or even the best episodes of the series, still, provided you don't take the whole story too seriously, you will probably find yourself well entertained ...
