4.0 out of 5 stars possibly the most formidable bad guys, 17 April 2009
This is the first adventure featuring Lalla Ward as Romana and hence contains the very comic regeneration scene which personally I would say is reason enough for buying this episode.
Thoughout Doctor Who the Daleks have been a great enemy, dispite their inability in the early series to get up stairs!
This is a great Dalek story and certainly does not disappoint, it contains lots of laughs (not only at the men in white lycra :p) and also some great episode endings with actual suspense!

5.0 out of 5 stars wow, 17 April 2009
For some reason in most places this boxset seems to be on offer but I can not see why as it contains 3 great episodes.
The Keeper of Traken as the leading in episode is a thoroughly good Episode typical of the Tom Baker era and includes references to the loss of Romana, who was in my opinion the doctor's best assistant
Logopolis as Baker's final episode is fantastic and Castrovalva is a v ery amusing episode even though very little seems to happen in part 2 and 3.
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who likes Doctor who, even if you only like the 9th and 10th doctors this is a great boxset to introduce you to the 4th and 5th doctors and the fun of the classic series
