5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing., 27 May 2013
What an amazing story! It goes without saying that the regulars are all amazing, and for having Jago & Litefoot reunited with the Fourth Doctor, this story would be worth buying. But this 60 minute story is brilliant in EVERY way! I, for, one, would pay good money for the dramatic, Victorian feeling soundtrack. The story isn't at all gimmicky, as could be a concern with a reunion story, it's actually very well written. The author, John Dorney, has all the characters just right, and creates believable and fun characters, that fit perfectly into the world of The Talons of Weng-Chiang. A truly top-notch and well-rounded story that doesn't take itself too seriously, and I look forward to Mr Dorney's future Forth Doctor stories, as he gets our favourite just right-next years The King of Sontar looks great! And I would LOVE more Jago & Litefoot with the Fourth Doctor!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 2 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without wanting to give away the plot, if you have read the previous books then you should read this book! There are a few things that we have all wanted to see from book one, but even if these things don't interest you, it is still a great book. Written in Landy's usual brilliant style, the plot contains some great villains. The main 'baddie' has understandable motives, and is a character that readers can sympathise with. The other villains are mis-guided, and are recognisable every day characters, the type of person everyone knows. And they have one of the things every villain must have; they make the reader HATE them. Throughout the book, you feel yourself looking forward to their comeuppance. This alone would make a great book, but Landy pulls ace after ace throughout the book, hooking the reader and stopping you putting the book down. Just read it. You won't regret it, but I can't tell you why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Special features!, 30 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD deserves 5 stars for its amazing special features alone! There is another interesting Doctor who story, this time featuring Frazer Hines. The feature offers many interesting views into missing episodes and Patrick Troughton-both things you normally don't get to hear so much about. The Doctor's strange love is a nice feature with some nice moments and opinions. But of course the thing that earns the 5 stars is Second Time Around-the definitive Troughton documentary covering the whole of Troughton's tenure, thoroughly enjoyable and interesting. The actual show is worth watching for some nice Troughton moments, and it is interesting to see the beginning of Robert Holmes long and successful Doctor who career. The story also is not as bad as it is often made out to be, and the Krotons are certainly not the worst designed monster Doctor who has ever had.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two of the best, one of the worst. Essential Pertwee!, 27 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As many other reviews have said, the Davidson story, warriors of the deep, is quite a poor story. It was rated 185th of the 200 stories rated in Doctor Who Magazine's mighty 200 poll in 2009. The problem I find with the story is that when you watch it on this box set, it is likely you will have just seen the other two stories...
The Silurians is an amazing story, and does not drag at 7 episodes. In the DWM poll, it reached 45th place, and I would perhaps have put it even higher. Malcolm Hulke writes an amazing story, and the 7 parts allows plenty of time for good characterisation. The Silurian voices in this story are amongst some of my favourites, the variety really lets you believe this is a whole different race that has lived on this planet millions of years before us.
The Sea Devils is a marvellous story, just falling short of The Silurians in the poll, in 50th place. I find it very hard to choose between this and the previous story. While Hulke's writing is possibly not as good here, Roger Delgado playing the Master really gives a new dimension of menace. While I feel, like many others do, that the Navy are incredibly good here, especially the scenes where they bounce of Jon Pertwee. However, I do feel the episode could have been even better if the Brigadier had of had a few scenes, perhaps near the end where he could have had some amusing banter with some of the Navy personnel. However what we do have is great, and makes for great viewing.
Then we come to Warriors of the Deep. All can be explained by two words: The Myrka!
The special features are all up to standard, though I would quite liked to have seen one looking at all the stories in this set as a whole.
Nobody should be deterred from buying this because of the poor quality of the 5th Doctor story-the two 3rd Doctor stories are among some of the very best in all of classic who.

The curse of Fenric is an amazing example of the objective of a darker Doctor the script editor Andrew Cartmel had in mind. This is Ian Briggs's second story for Doctor who, and is miles better that Dragonfire. If Remembrance of the Daleks is ignored, this is the best McCoy story there is, DWM readers certainly thought so in the mighty 200 poll, placing it number 30 behind the 14th place dalek story. It shows what a shame it was that we never got a 27th season, however this is a story viewers would be glad not to miss, and is an essential part of the dark doctor, and therefore the whole shows heart and soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 doctors? 5 stars!, 28 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ok, there are problems. Really there are 3 doctors and an impersonator, but to be frank, I don't care. The fact that this story happened in a time when JNT (producer) was really making some bad mistakes is, to me incredible. Moments such as seeing Elisabeth Sladen and Jon Pertwee or Patrick Troughton and the Brigadier is incredible. I can forgive the weak storyline and floating triangles because this is really a story about the shows history, celebrating the man (or men) we love. The fact there was no 4th doctor was overcome, as was the sad absence of William Hartnell. There are so many clever things put in by Terrance Dicks, like the 3rd doctor meeting the master played by a different actor, showing the doctor just knows. To be honest, this review will change nothing. If you are a doctor who fan, there is no question about whether or not you should see this, it is history, and a show that still manages to be amazing at a time when it was faced with such difficulties. And it has a YETI in it!!!

The Sontaran is a brilliant monster, never over used, to make four amazing appearances in classic who. the first of these is a brilliant introduction to much loved companion Sarah-Jane Smith, easily 5 stars, the second a great story in two parts, the third a brilliant adventure with an amazing plot, and the final, while not so good is made enjoyable by the amazing Patrick Troughton.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant tribute, 21 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really good read, and an amazing tribute to an incredible woman. The book is really interesting for a who fan, as they get an insight to the wonderful worlds of both the 3rd and 4th doctor. For non who fans, this is still a great read and means you don't always know what's coming next. A must read book for all ages.

I have had these headphones for a week now, and I can not fault them, other than the fact they itch my head when I am hot, but so do most headgear. setup was easy, the controls make sense, the mic is good, although it does slip down abit, nothing a push won't sort (yes, I know I said I couldn't find a fault, but hey, sue me!) not the best headset ever, but then if you include price maybe it is...definatly worth alot more, I would pay more, thats for certain!
