A Gorgeous Little Fun-Bundle!,
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Space Museum/The Chase [DVD] (DVD)This is a very good classic Doctor Who package. Fans have often said bad things about these two stories. I think they're great and make a nice change from serious classic B&W Doctor Who. They're very easy to watch and unlike other stories don't require firm, hard concentration. 2|Entertain have really upped the quality of the extras included. There's been a noticable jump up in the quality of the extras - and there's a lot of them. Unlike previous Classic Who releases we don't get cast and crew prattling on and on and on about tedious little details that would send even the most die hard fan into a coma. The extras on this release have been kept tight and to the point, they're interesting, enjoyable and informative. I particularly enjoyed the silent colour film featuring Shawcraft Models - who made most of the props and monsters (including the Daleks) in the 1960's. The picture quality of the episodes themselves look absolutely amazing, the restoration seems to have been undertaken with great care. The restoration team behind the remastering of these classic stories now have almost 20 years experience restoring old TV shows. The technology is improving all the time - and it shows with this release, which as I said before - looks better than anything before.

Great review - like the DVD extras, 'tight and to the point'. Shame can't be said for all reviewers...

Hello, Mr. Pundit. I'm going to try not to feel too hurt (and assume that you were making an amusing spin on my own caption) by the use of the word "cheats" in that comment, although I am at a loss as to how I could organise such a thing, even if I thought it was the kind of thing worth "cheating" about...?
I would imagine that all the power in such matters lies outside my control as anyone clicking on "not helpful" when the numbers are so low would immediately alter the percentages to such an extent that that review would plummet off the screen and never be read again.
I sort of guess that that's how it might work, anyway, but you might be better informed.
