Well, at last! The brilliant Pyramids of Mars on DVD. This story ranks as one of my favourites of all Dr Who stories. It comes from arguably the best era of Dr Who, with Philip Hinchcliffe as producer. The quality of production is evident, as is the strength of the writing. The combination of gothic atmosphere, Egyptian mythology & the fate of the cosmos (again!) creates a classic story. Any Dr Who fan really should have this in their collection - no excuses! The extras are good, with the documentaries about the making of Pyramids & the Hinchcliffe era especially good.
The commentaries are good, as is usual with most of the DVD releases. It's just a shame they couldn't get Tom Baker to share his thoughts. The other good thing is that this is the complete print - if you are like me & have the original VHS release from the 80s then you'll be doing double takes at the scenes that appear in the DVD that were edited from the VHS!
In conclusion, I simply can't recommend this enough - it's essential. Buy it now!
