1.0 out of 5 stars Beware this DVD, 28 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: Revelation of the Daleks, The Colin Baker Years 1984 - 86 [DVD] (DVD)
I can't review this story because I have now had 3 copies of it sent to me and ALL 3 have exactly the same fault on them. The story gets to a certain point and then starts to loop back on itself over and over again. First time it loops is at a point where two people are running down a corridor from 2 different angles - so it takes a while before you realise there is a problem as there is always so much running down corridors in Who. If you manage to get past this first loop (which I only did on my 3rd copy) you continue to meet many FURTHER loops as you go along - each one looping back further and further each time. If anyone has managed to buy a good copy of this DVD I'd like to know where they got it from so I can get a copy there as well.

Have you tried the fix suggested by Simon Dent on a previous review - apparently it works:
"It is to do with the added CGI effects. You need to "force" the DVD into either switching these "on" or "off" before you place the episode/scene, by going into the "Special Features" menu and then switching them either "on" or "off"."

Thank you for this, as I was starting to go mad, as I could only get the DVD to play properly on my laptop!
