Revisitations 1 is a 7-disc boxset containing updated and remastered versions of three previous Doctor Who DVD releases - ‘The Talons of Weng-Chiang’, ‘The Caves of Androzani’ and ‘Doctor Who – The Television Movie’ with 3 extra discs of special features, which equates to over 300 minutes of brand new content.
In the first of our adventures, The Talons of Weng-Chiang, our inimitable Doctor Who and his assistant Leela are confronted by sinister and seemingly inexplicable occurrences in this gripping thriller set in the shadowy depths of nineteenth century London. With the help of Professor Litefoot, the Doctor investigates the gruesome murder of a cabbie and the mysterious disappearances of young girls. Whilst being chased by giant rats and forced to pit his wits against an evil doll and a merciless illusionist, he comes face-to-face with his most deadly enemy to date: Magnus Greel - a fifty-first century war criminal posing as Weng Chiang, an ancient Chinese god.
The Caves of Andozani takes place on the barren world of Androzani, where the Doctor and Peri find themselves embroiled in a long running underground war. Military troops mount an armed blockade whilst gunrunners bring in weapons for the sinister, masked renegade, Sharaz Jek. Meanwhile, lethal androids guard the caves, where a deadly creature lurks in the shadows, killing all in its path. At the heart of the conflict is a substance called Spectrox - the most valuable item in the universe...and the deadliest! Will the Doctor make the ultimate sacrifice to save his young friends life?
In our final story, Paul McGann stars in his only outing as the eight Doctor in Doctor Who: The Movie. Returning home to Gallifrey with the remains of his arch enemy, the Master, the TARDIS is forced off course, landing the Doctor into the middle of a street gang's gun battle in downtown San Franciso. Critically wounded in the shoot out, the Doctor has to regenerate to save his own life. And he's not the only one - the Master too has a new body with which to wreak havoc. As the clock counts down to the start of a new millennium, the Doctor has to stop the Master destroying all life on Earth. But at what cost...?

Talons of Weng Chiang is classic Uncle Tom Baker stuff. Almost a riff on the "lost" Sherlock Holmes story (referred to but not told by Conan Doyle) the Giant Rat of Sumatra, a rich and fun Robert Holmes script tells us of a series of murders/ disappearances of young girls in Victorian London. The 4th Doctor clearly plays Sherlock Holmes hunting the evil force behind it all. It's well acted and made, with great supporting characters; notably Jago & Litefoot. Maybe a little slow for modern tastes & the giant rat's not so good.
Again from the pen of Robert Holmes, Caves of Androzani is a gritty & well written tale of intrigue, gun running and the dark deeds inspired by an age-defying restorative with good characters and only a woeful creaure letting the side down. Arguably the last tale for Peter Davison was his best. Widely recommended
Dr Who: The Movie is well made, very enjoyable and glossy looking but a poor script gives us moments that don't ring true as Dr Who to me; Daleks that give last requests , The Doctor's psychic clairvoyant knowledge of inner most secrets of whoever he meets and partly solving dilemmas by going back in time in the Tardis. very accessable for New Who fans
In reverse order, the Movie already had contemporary behind the scenes/ promo material, an illmuniating retrospective interview with producer Philip Segal and a good but no gold stars director's commentary.Read more ›
On the other hand, the extras are very good and perhaps highlight the earlier policy of hardly any extras as really being the thing that we should complain about, though both are products of their time.
What you do get for your money are two of the all-time greats of Doctor Who (Talons was in the top ten of the all-time best in DWM, while Caves was the number one). If you have not seen these before then get this box set.
Individually there are still problems. Both Talons and Caves have some embarrassing special effects (Rat & Magma Monster respectively), but the stories are so well done and so well acted that these shortcomings are easy to overcome. The Magma monster exists only to create a cliffhanger for episode two and if this were edited into a movie then it could be removed without any problem. That said, Caves episode 1 & 3 cliffhangers are two of the best in the series history, primarily because of the threat of regeneration hanging over them - something that happened again more recently with The Stolen Earth.
The Movie (please can someone rename this?), is Doctor Who by committee and it shows. The extras for this explain why the mess occurred and why it failed (in the US anyway)and you feel sorry for the creators of this who were increasingly bound by requirements from all parties.
The best thing about this is Paul McGann who was a fantastic choice for Doctor and makes it worth watching. Anyone who enjoys his performance should probably try and get hold of the Big Finish audios.Read more ›
