I shall not dwell too much on these stories as much has already been said, however Time-Flight is a particular disappointment, it seemed to be going so well with the continuity of Adric's death and them landing at an airport, but from then on it goes downhill (, although I did enjoy the Doctor climbing into a sideways Tardis.
Arc of Infinity was a good story and also sees Colin Baker, a future Doctor, as a Gallifreyan guard. It sees the return of Omega and much was filmed in Amsterdam. However, I would not rate it as the best of Peter Davison's era.

3/5 stars; Time-Flight had a good story but was poorly realised whereas Arc of Infinity was an improvement and I would recommend this collection, but only if you can buy it for under £8 otherwise it is a rip-off.

"Time-Flight" - 2/5; "Arc of Infinity" - 3/5; Special Features - 4/5.

This boxed set contains two consecutive Doctor Who serials, linked by companion Tegan's departure from and subsequent return to the TARDIS crew (D'oh! Why'd she have to come back?).

"Time-Flight", by occasional "Doctor Who" director Peter Gimwade, brings the series' nineteenth season to a rather shambolic and cheapskate end. Full of ideas and ambitiously written, "Time-Flight" could have been fantastic with a movie budget and a more carefully edited script, but, filmed at the end of a long season by a tired cast and a crew who had run out of money, sadly that was not to be.
"Time-Flight" suffers significantly from its set design. Those parts of "Time-Flight" that were filmed on location at Heathrow Airport are definitely its most convincing. The same cannot, unfortunately, be said for the scenes set on Prehistoric Earth, filmed in studio on a perspective set with an obvious painted sky that robs the scenes of much of their credibility. Further location filming on a blasted heath somewhere would surely have been more convincing.
On the other hand, "Time-Flight" manages to convey the two Concordes' journeys between the present day and prehistoric Earth remarkably well using a combination of stock footage and modelwork, given the technological constraints and special effects budget available to the series at the time of "Time-Flight"'s production.

It's much better than I expected and I got it packaged with the other DVD that I wanted because the BBC is no longer producing it in DVD format.

The best way to review this item it to review the two DVDs separately so that the quality can be judged.
Time-Flight is considered to be a very mediocre story, from the hay-day of the Davison era. I surpose in comparison to the greats from the Pertwee/T. Baker era, this is very true. However, as an eighties effort, Time-Flight is very good.
The useof Concord and the central concept was original for 'Who and the tight script alows Nyssa and Tegan to get an equal share of the action as Peter Davison's Doctor bounces with excitement from scene to scene.
I was never a fan of Doctor 5, however, over the years I have went from thinking him a mediocre Doctor, to an brilliant one. He brought an air of originality to the show.
The extras in Time-Flight are limited but good, with short interviews and behind the scenes 'mess ups'. There's good entertainment here.

Arc of Infinity is in fact a story that I am very fond of and, in fact, have wanted as a release on DVD for some time. Davison is just about at his peak of excellence here. Nyssa gets a great share of the action and Tegan's character is introduced sportingly. The Amsterdam setting is a nice exotic approach for 'Who, much like Paris in 'City of Death'.
Gallifrey is used well (beter than in 'The Five Doctors') to portray the very interesting (and very real) concept of partical antimatter and possible antimatter transfere.
One of my favourite villans makes a return on a much beter form than his previous encounter with the Doctor. Overall, Arc of Infinity shows just how good the Davison era was, with great writing and great acting, along with (mostly) great costume work.
The extras are good with the brilliant documentary (like they always are): Antimater in Amsterdam.

I really enjoyed this box-set a lot, as it contains two amazing stories in `Doctor Who' with Peter Davison! Yes I know, you think I'm bonkers! Perhaps I am. But I honestly enjoyed watching these two `Doctor Who' stories when I bought the box-set whilst on holiday in Torridon, Scotland back in 2007. Crikey, is it that long ago?

These are two fine stories with Sarah Sutton who plays Nyssa, my favourite `Doctor Who' companion. Sarah has signed the DVD covers of these two stories recently for me at a convention in Cardiff in the beginning of March. I cherish this box-set always and can't help but enjoy both stories with Peter's Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan. Really! Honest!

`TIME-FLIGHT'

Poor `Time Flight'! No one likes `Time-Flight' very much. I quite like `Time-Flight'. No one wants it. It's this uncherished, unloved `Doctor Who' story that was tagged on at the end of Season 19 (Peter's first season as the Doctor) as the season finale. And yet despite its faults, dodgy dialogue and dodgy effects, it's a story that, for me anyway, does have plenty of good moments and deserves more examination.

To start, `Time-Flight' is a story that despite its weak plot managed to gain 10 million viewers. Also the plot itself contains a simple premise that is quite exciting to watch. A Concorde plane gets zapped back in time; the TARDIS gets caught in its impact; the Doctor, Nyssa and Tegan are summoned to investigate the plane's disappearance; they themselves along with three air pilots get zapped back in time; find themselves in the prehistoric age; come up against a terrifying villain; and have to find a way to get themselves and the passengers of the earlier Concorde plane to return...back to the future! To me, those are the ingredients for a good Who story. It's all there.
