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

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.

Format: DVD
The third volume in the Doctor Who Revisitation DVD collection features the classic Patrick Troughton serial The Tomb of the Cybermen, the 10th Anniversary serial The Three Doctors starring Jon Pertwee, Patrick Troughton and William Hartnell, and the classic Tom Baker serial The Robots of Death.

The Tomb of the Cybermen is the first full surviving serial of the Patrick Troughton era and the first to feature Victoria Waterfield in a companion role. This is one of the best serials of the Troughton era, showing Troughton at his very best and is one of the best Cybermen serials in the show's history.

The Three Doctors serial was created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show and features all three of the first Doctors, though William Hartnells' role is more of a cameo due to his poor health. While the story isn't one of the most memorable, the banterring between the Doctors is brilliantly done and Omega makes for a very credible foe for the Doctors to face.

The Robots of Deaths marks the second appearence of companion Leela, who while not quitemon the level of Sara Jane Smith is still a very memorable companion and is certainly one of the toughest. The robots make for a tough challenge for The Doctor to face and the serial marks the start of another run of several classic serials including The Talons of Wing Chiang and Horror of Fang Rock.

Format: DVD
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.
