4.0 out of 5 stars "More Old Who Revisited" 6 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
Briefly on Seeds of Death & Canival of Monsters as I reviewed the original releases; Seeds is a good follow up to the 1st Ice Warriors story which doesn't simply remake the 1st one. A little overlong at 6 eps but the introduction of the sleeker "Icelord" caste, the 2nd Doc's insistence that he can't be killed as he is a "genius", plus innovative ways of shooting the warriors (e.g. against sky) & a lot of movement keep this entertaining.
Carnival's a witty fun tale from Robert Holmes. Plenty of great dialogue & characters and the brilliant set-up (life forms trapped in a scope to entertain people with their behaviour) has more than a touch of the much later Big Brother Phenomenon.
Resurrection of the Daleks is a well made, entertaining mess. There are some great ideas e.g furthering the Daleks as intergalactic Nazis theme Davros is now Rudolph Hess (lone prisoner in a high security prison). The Shad Thames location is great, gritty & hepled tenfold by the rain. Spaceship sets look beleivable and as in all the best pepperpot shows a handful of Daleks look like more.
Great cast watch for Dirty Den Leslie Grantham, Likely Lad Rodney Bewes and pre-school favourite Chloe Ashcroft. Ashcroft is in particular a revelation as she acted so rarely but is bloody good here.
Best characters include Maurice Colbourne's mercenary Lytton making his debut, Sneh Gupta who puts an enormous amount into a small role & Terry Molloy's Davros debut.
Molloy's Davros has a more fruity flavour than Sir Michael Wisher (it's easy to imagine him enjoying a good port) but gets great scenes scheming & then in a showdown with Davison's Dr, which is a great moment for both actors.
The script throws ideas about, many of which are a Dalek's Greatest Hits package. It's often hard to see the point of them.

Format:DVD
Well, here we go again - another three stories to be given brand spanking new updates and I have to admit that they are three stories which are solid enough.

Firstly, The Seeds Of Death starring the excellent Patrick Troughton. This story capitalises on the popularity of the Ice Warriors - unfortunately without Bernard Bresslaw this time but instead we get Alan Bennion making his first of three appearances as various Ice Lords - and of course this being screened in 1969, it features the Doctor travelling to the Moon by rocket. Although, there's the ineviable padding and general running around of a six parter, it's a solid enough story - particuarly when you think that within six weeks of this story finishing transmission, Troughton's Doctor would take his first steps towards his eventual regeneration in The War Games.

Jon Pertwee's era is represented by the excellent knock about fun adventure that is Carnival Of Monsters. You have comedy, thrills, scares, monsters - okay a few on a screen and the Drashigs, the Doctor and Jo partnership, and Ian Marter putting in a guest appearance as Andrews, prior to his casting as Surgeon Lieutenant Harry Sullivan for Series 12.

Finally, we get Resurrection Of The Daleks which has London Docklands, clones, viruses, Rula Lenska, Rodney Bewes, him from Howard's Way, Tegan's departure, a massive body count, Daleks... oh and Terry Molloy's first appearance as Davros to fit into it. With all this, you may wonder how on earth did it turn out okay? I don't know but it just does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for Pertwee. 5 Jun 2014
By Pete.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Peter Davidson is a good actor, but as Dr Who he is not one of the greats.

Patrick Troughton was a very good Dr Who.

Now let's cut to the chase.

John Pertwee is Dr Who. If you are really into Dr Who you will buy this to see Pertwee.

As with all Dr Who DVD there is only one greatest, so buy this for the Pertwee DVD and watch the man who not only commands being the greatest Dr but owns it by Devine right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who - National Hero 2 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my son who you would now describe as a fully signed up whovian. Great to see original episodes again, they may not be as visually exciting as current day episodes but still true classics. Will bring memories flooding back to anyone who hid behind sofa watching these as a child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Who 27 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
3 great stories from 3 different Doctors.
The Seeds of Death is my favourite of these with Patrick Troughton as the Doctor. He really is very funny and probably the Doctor that Matt Smith emulates so well. The Ice Warriors are hilariously stupid considering they are supposed to be a respected warrior race and the Ice Lord is the blue print of Darth Vader.
Carnival of Monsters, with John Pertwee, has some great moments, especially when the Tardis is picked up by huge hands.
Resurrection of the Daleks with Peter Davison again has some good moments to lift a basicly bland story - a dalek being pushed out of a warehouse window and smashing on the ground below!
The discs are loaded with extras, mainly of the cast and crew reminiscing, all worth a watch.
Picture quality is superb considering the age of some of these.
Well worth buying at about the 15 tag.
