Doctor Who serves up two tales of alien worlds colliding [Video]

What do the two Doctor Who stories on DVD today have in common? On the surface, nothing. But they're both stories about sheltered alien societies coming into contact with other alien races... with disastrous results. Spoilers ahead.

Very few TV shows would be able to get away with showing an alien race meeting another alien race, with nary an Earthling in the mix. But classic Doctor Who did it pretty often, and the new series has done it a few times as well. The two stories on DVD today, "The Dominators" and "Meglos," hail from 1968 and 1980 respectively, but they both feature a non-human (but human-looking) society living in isolation... until the other aliens turn up.
