From Amazon.co.uk

The Revisitations box sets have proven to be something of a treasure trove for Doctor Who enthusiasts. The principle is simple: take a trio of previously-released stories, and go back and do the job in a lot more detail the second time around.

For this third collection, then, the stories selected come from three different eras of the famous Time Lord. Patrick Troughton headlines The Tomb Of The Cybermen, Tom Baker is the Doctor in The Robots Of Death, and Jon Pertwee is joined by William Hartnell and Troughton again for The Three Doctors.

The stories all have real merits to them, but it’s the exceptional package of supplementary material makes the Revisitations 3 set so special. Just take one of the stories. The Robots Of Death features a pair of commentary tracks, including everything from Tom Baker himself to Leela’s costume choices. On top of that, there’s a traditionally comprehensive look back at the making of the story itself. But it’s also the level of detail, right down to model shots, and the floor plan of the studio itself, that really fleshes the extra material out.

Picks from the other stories? Well, ‘Was Doctor Who Rubbish?’ asks an entertaining feature on The Three Doctors, whilst there’s rare footage of lost story Evil Of The Daleks packaged in with The Tomb Of The Cybermen.

Whether you’re a paid up Doctor Who fan or not, what these comprehensive discs provide is a deep, insightful look at the challenges of mounting such ambitious productions in far less advanced technical times. And, best of all, the stories here, especially The Robots Of Death, are really good, too. --Simon Brew

5.0 out of 5 stars The Men in the Iron Masks 14 Feb 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An ancient adventure that rose from its Tomb, a birthday party and an art-deco whodunit - this collection has three great stories, all with metal-faced adversaries but so different when you lift their masks.

If you don't have the earlier individual releases this set is an essential buy. If you do have them already - the quality of the newly reprocessed `Tomb of the Cybermen' is amazing and there are some great new extras. This is a longish review so thanks if you get to the end. Overall rating 5*

The Tomb of the Cybermen - 5*

I was too young to see any of the Patrick Troughton era stories, but reading the novelisations in the 70s showed me two absolute classics, both thought lost - `The Tomb of the Cybermen' and `The Web of Fear'. I still remember the news story when `Tomb' turned up in Hong Kong in 1992 and buying the VHS release. And it was a great story but like all the others from that time, rather fuzzy and low contrast from the film process. If only we could see it `like new' ...

This `regenerated' release, seen on a modern TV, must be better than watching the original broadcast! With crisp, sharp, stable, high contrast pictures, from the moment Patrick Troughton swirls into view you know this is something very special. Then you can just sit back and enjoy one of the great `Doctor Who' stories. It draws clear parallels with the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb and the `Mummy' films for characters, iconography and atmosphere, working this together expertly with real science, logic and the Cybermen to produce a classic `Doctor Who' that still works superbly after almost 50 years.

The direction and location filming of the opening scenes are excellent; no gravel pit has ever looked better. Valley of the Kings, Telos, here we are.

Doctor Who - Revisitations box set volume 3 - the final collection of restored classics and by far the greatest line-up that could have been put together. This I must own, to hell with owning the originals, they are nearly as old as me so to have this brand new ultimate edition collection of restored classics is a must. Each of the three serials you get in this collection is a masterpiece, Doctor Who at its greatest, The Tomb of the Cybermen for me is the greatest 1960's Doctor Who serial ever made, I have reviewed this serial before {2002 edition} and I really must stress the greatness of this Pat Troughton Cyber Classic. The Three Doctor's, the second title of this collection is another Jon Pertwee great, come to think of it, I have not seen a Jon Pertwee serial I have not liked. This 10th anniversary special is indeed special, reuniting William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton and new Doctor Jon Pertwee was a masterstoke from Barry Letts, the then producer. Finally, Tom Baker's The Robots of Death is yet another classic from the greatest 3 years of the show, classic-mania. The Philip Hinchcliffe era of the programme saw the most controversal and entertaining stories ever made and record viewing figures backed this up.

The Tomb of the Cybermen ~ The once feared Cybermen have disappeared from the universe without a trace. An expedition from Earth arrives on Telos - homeworld of the Cybermen - to try and discover exactly what has become of the silver giants. Soon after the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria join the archaeological party, the first mysterious death occurs. With the group now stranded on Telos because of the traitors in their midst, it becomes clear that the Cybermen may not be as dead as first thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good. 5 Jun 2014
By Pete.
Format:DVD
To begin with I have to admit to being a fan of Jonn Pertwee Dr Who episodes. For me the Three Doctors was Pertwee's poorest performance as the Doctor. Having said that it is a relevant and objective comment, for as with any true Dr Who fan you are still watching the greatest Dr.

Not Pertwee's greatest moment, but still a must for Who fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars what's not to love????? 16 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a life-long fan of the show (thats almost forty-two years of viewing pleasure) I am happily willing to put my hands up and say if it exists in the BBC archives, it's on my dvd shelf. However, I never ever miss an official BBC release and this one I was exceptionally eager to get my grubby little protuberances on.
This third revisitations boxset is arguably the very best, because let's face it the original releases of the three stories it contains were seriously woeful.
Lets take them in order.................

The Tomb of the Cybermen looks absolutely stunning now that it has been cleaned up even more than before. The picture is crisp, the sound sharp, and all the atmosphere that I imagine was there on its original broadcast is there for all to see in glorious monochrome. Tomb stands the test of time, Troughton easily stealing his show, but its the extras that shine for me. Not only are all the original extras here, including the embarrassing Morris Barry intros to the video version release, but a host of new bits and bobs that do not fail to grip and enthrall.

Thr Three Doctors is the same - great story, beautiful restoration, but get to the special features and wallow in the nostalgia. Especially poignant for me are the explanations of Billy Hartnell's short appearances. We all know how ill the man was, but now we have the full story and we can realise that we are immensely fortunate to have him in the story at all. I remember watching this one on transmission, and thinking "who are these other Doctors????", and its fantastic to be able to not only re-watch a classic tale from my youth, but also enjoy the background to the story as well.

Ah - The Robots of Death.
A four-part epic that truly deserves its status as one of the all-time greats.
