This is marvellous!

It comes in an attractive oversized tin, which needs a sponge liner to safely house the 3 individual jewel cases. It's probably the best looking of the box-sets that have been made available . The only possible complaint you can have about the packaging is that for those of us who also own the Dalek, Cybermen & Travels in Time boxes, because of the size, it doesn't stack up nicely on top of the others.

When the BBC first got serious about releasing "missing" adventures on audio, I always hoped they'd eventually move into the "non-missing" soundtracks. They have, and they've got off to a GREAT start.

Pertwee is probably my favourite Doctor (for me personally it's between him and Troughton), and we've got 2 GREAT stories of his in this set; The Silurians (his 2nd outing) and The Sea Devils (which is one of my favourite stories!).

The individual booklets look great too; the artwork features more colour than you're used to (in some ways matching Pertwee's own colourful performances and appearances) and the linking narration is by Katy Manning & Caroline John. If I was actually choosing the 1st two Pertwee stories that were to be made available for CD, there's a very good chance I'd have gone for these two (at the very least I'd have included the Sea Devils). High quality, early 70s, classic Doctor Who.

The Warriors Of The Deep finds Doctor Davidson in good (not great) form. A lot of fans didn't like this one, and although I think there were much better stories, I've never had the issues with it that some have. Linking narration is done by Janet Fielding.

Thoroughly enjoyable stuff and a really nice packaged set.

I REALLY recommend it and am happy to give it 5 stars. Considering the current price (£18.88 from Amazon, with free delivery), it's a MUST for Doctor Who fans.
