The six stories really have to be considered separately.
THE RIBOS OPERATION-
A very good-looking, well-acted, Robert Holmes sting story. Looks like Eisenstein's Russia, very well plotted, delightfully funny; a real star turn from Ian Cuthbertson as the master swindler, and a lovely cameo from Timothy Bateson as the heretic that realises he was right all along. Pity about the Shrivenzale - but spare a poor for poor Stuart Fell - it's got to be better seeing the thing from the *out*side! 4/5
THE PIRATE PLANET-
It's good - nearly as good as the previous one. Funnier - Douglas Adams, but never to the detriment of the story, which is a very good story - and Bruce Purchase and Andrew Robertson clearly having a whale of a time, and in the end the arch-villain is the nurse! And with a lovely model, and air cars, and caverns, and Liquorice Allsorts, and a linear induction corridor, and some nice location filming, it all looks great. And there's a robot parrot - it's very good. 4/5
THE STONES OF BLOOD-
First half's good - first half's spooky and menacing and mysterious - and then the second half explains it all, and I wish it had explained it all some other way.Read more ›
For the price, its worth it for 26 episodes!
Very pleased with it.
The Ribos Operation (****) kicks things off with a pair of con-men trying to sell a slightly-used planet to a warlord. it's all about the writing here: almost every character feels like a real person, the conversations is delightful and a scene in which the outcast Binro's belief that those lights in the night sky are other worlds is vindicated is one of the best scenes in the whole series, yet it has absolutely no relevance to the plot. great, great stuff. The only fly in this story's ointment is the Shrivenzale, a truly awful rubber monster even by Doctor Who's standards.
The Pirate Planet (***), written by one Douglas Adams, is great-but-lightweight fun, with a scenery-chewing villain and a deadly robotic parrot to give K9 a run for his money. Adams was a man of ideas rather than storytelling, though, and this tale doesn't quite add up to the sum of its parts.
The Stones of Blood (***) is excellent in its first, Earth-based, half, but once the story shifts to Hyperspace it falls down into pedestrian courtroom drama.Read more ›
The Ribos Operation (**)
The Pirate Planet (****)
The Stones of Blood (*****)
The Androids of Tara (****)
The Power of Kroll (***)
The Armageddon Factor (**)
The Season is 26 Parts all Together. The Ribos Operation through to the Power of Kroll are 4 Parts, and the Armageddon Factor is six Parts.
Again the box set is well worth the money and enjoyable to watch. I give the box set an overall score of 5 stars.

These BBC productions never fail to please. Bought to replace the VHS versions, the Dr Who chronology is a glimpse into the growth and development of the BBC broadcast.Published 3 months ago by cool as cats in shades
