Cover blurb:
''We are not of this race. We are not of this Earth. We are wanderers in the fourth dimension of space and time.''

On the 23rd November 1963 Gallifrey's most famous time traveller, the Doctor, began his wanderings in his first incarnation — William Hartnell — the anti-hero with a heart of gold. So began the Hartnell years — 1963-1966.

28 years later, the Doctor's seventh incarnation, Sylvester McCoy, takes us back through time, through previously untransmitted or rare episodes.

For the first time...
AN UNEARTHLY CHILD:
Filmed on the 27th September 1963, the original untransmitted pilot episode. How it all really began...

Plus: 'The Wheel of Fortune' (Episode 3 of THE CRUSADE)
'The Final Test' (Final episode of THE CELESTIAL TOYMAKER)
Originally transmitted in 1965 & 1966, these rare episodes are all that remain of two classic adventures.

Cover blurb:
Same as UK edition — though after Warner Home Video took over distribution of the US Who video range in 2000, they changed the final sentence to say:
Episode 1 of "The Crusade" (1965) was found in 1999, but "The Final Test" is still all that remains of the classic "Celestial Toymaker" adventure.
