5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing., 10 Aug 2013
Colin Baker was a massively underrated and over criticised Doctor. Yes some of the episodes were violent, but people need to get over that.

This is a really strong story, with a good script, good direction and really good acting from Baker and Nabil Shaban as Sil. The scenes set in the Punishment Dome are scary and hilariously psychedelic.

The special features are also really good, the "making of" documentary is very insightful and really shows the writer's intention for the story. Some of the other features, like Baker and Nicola Bryant (sporting her STUPID American accent) being interviewed on swapshop only to be phoned by The Master, are very entertaining.

This DVD is well worth the money and is a definite purchase for any fan of Doctor Who.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection., 10 Aug 2013
I still think that the first episode of An Unearthly Child is the best 25 minutes of television ever made. Ever. Full stop. The remaining three episodes let it down a bit, but it was 1963 for goodness sake.

The Daleks is a good story, mercilessly padded to the point of being slightly boring.

The Edge of Destruction is a weird story, with good elements of psychological horror, but with terrible fluffs from Bill Hartnell and the infamous "fast return switch".

The extras are pretty great, the reconstruction of Marco Polo being the highlight.

Overall, this is a really good boxset, slightly let down by the quality of some of the episodes, but still good fun and good value.
