An excellent set - worth every penny, packed with loads of the early years stories, if you are a fan of William Hartnell & Patrick Troughton you must own it now :-)

Now this is more like it, shame there arent any complete stories in the vaults to these adventures but what a collection. The great days of the Dr. Now if only they did a DVD of the dalek master plan or the 10th Planet with animation like they have done with the Invasion. Lets start the campaign eh eh what do you say....

A brilliant set

This is a brilliant release, very well-balanced, full of brilliant episodes from the first two Doctors.
The set is worth owning for the brilliant 'Day of Armageddon', part 2 of the Daleks' Master Plan, although it's a shame that the other two episodes from that serial on this release certainly don't live up to it.
Another little gem I discovered is 'The Final Test', the 4th and (as the name suggests) final part of 'The Celestial Toymaker', which really is much better than many people say it is.
The Patrick Troughton discs have generally weaker stories, although there are a few beauties, such as 'The Web of Fear' episode 1.
Overall, a brilliant release and great value for money.



Best Box-set yet!

This is the best Box-set of Dr Who ever! Almost all of orpaned episodes in 1 whole Box-set on 3 DVDs. All we need now is the animated episodes.



Really is lamentable...

The BBC had no brains at all, when it came to scrapping so many of the early Doctor Who episodes. Especially when so many casualties were some of the very best Doctor Who stories ever in the history of Whodom.

The Crusade has some incredibly strong moments, and this is more character driven than action packed, and tis the better for it. Jean Marsh and Julian Glover and Bernard Kay are all cast perfectly in their respective roles, and William Hartnell is on top form indeed. The tension of the scnes between Joanna and her brother are palpable and very well directed indeed. A pain in the neck that so much of this story is lost to us these days. Really is a backsife pain.

The Daleks Masterplan is an epic, and these are special and engaging and climatic episodes, that go along at such a good pace and are never lagging for anything along the whole ride. Three episodes survive of this tale and again this is such an annoying thing. Kevin Stoney is excellent as Mavic Chen,and the Daleks are at the height of their powers, with plenty of menace and lack of humanity from the word go. Nick Courntey gives a brilliant first performance as Bret Vyon. And Jean Marsh is again incredible as Sara Kingdom. Such a sad twist with her death at the end of the story, which makes this story so memorable.

The Celestial Toymaker is a delight. Michael Gough is tremendous as the charming and crepy Toymaker, and Cyril is an excellent school boy mischief maker. Its good to have this on audio even if only one episode remains to be seen.

The Pat Troughton stories all possess such charm and endless brilliance. Even the unfairly maligned Underwater Menace is memorable for Joseph Fursts totally over the top portrayal of Zaroff, surely trhe most dippy idiot to ever appear in the series up to this point. The Moonbase has many good moments and the cybermen are brilliant. The Evil of The Daleks is a classy tale, one can see that just from the remaining episode two. Good to have this story on audio too. The Yeti are brilliant creations, although they are rather cuddly in The Abominable Snowmen.

The Wheel in Space has always been maligned, but I love it. Its one of my best Pat stories. It has such good character parts, and one really gets to know all the characters well along the way. And the cybermen are really emotionless here, one set tone of voice which is perfect!

The Space Pirates is a classic Who story. Aahh, flipping heck BBC! Whatw ere you thinking getting rid of all these amazing stories? I love the chracter of Milo Clancey, a brilliant character one expects from the pen of Robert Holmes.

All the extra clips from many other stories are a lovely treat and great to watch. This is definitely an excelllent release, just so sad these stories all suffer from being incomplete on TV. Lamentable...And an insult to the memory of two very fine Doctors.



Great but outdated

This is a great set but because of its age it includes episodes of stories that have now been released on dvd by themselves and doesn't include episodes like the underwater menace and galaxy 4 and certain clips that have know been found. Fortunately the galaxy 4 episode has been released but the underwater menace episode hasn't!
