Monster of Peladon is somewhat unfairly maligned. It was too long, it had some odd costuming choices, the Queen's vacant expression throughout much of the story was very odd, there's an odd bit of continuity error, and a lot of set reuse, and then there's that secret passage that was very cool in the first Peladon story but isn't much of a secret with everyone and their brother using it.

Still, the story has a lot of charms: Sarah Jane is a delight, the Doctor has some great moments including a sword fight. There are some nice surprising plot twists, and enough action and spectacle to make this an enjoyable serial. It's probably the weakest story featuring the Ice Warriors in Classic Who but it's fairly enjoyable for what it is.

The Curse of Peladon was fine, nothing special but it had its moments, nice pace at 4 episodes and a change for the Pertwee era (planets and stuff :P ) but its sequel Monster of Peladon is just straight out boring, 6 episodes of frankly filler for the season. Season 11 would be nearly flawless and be Pertwee's best season if it wasn't for this one bringing it down. Easily among Pertwee's worst 3 stories.
