The set comprises three discs, which contain all surviving footage from any stories that are incomplete, ranging from entire episodes to a few seconds of footage. They have been restored to an amazing standard - the images are so clear, this could have been filmed yesterday. Some of the stories do look pretty dull (although, to be fair, it is not really fair to judge on the basis of one or two episodes) but some do indeed look as interesting as I'd imagined they might be. Particularly so is the remaining snippets of "Fury From The Deep"; the scene where the two men suck all the air from the room is a chilling classic! It's just such a shame that you can't see the whole thing!
Dr Who fans the world over will be thanking the BBC on the one hand for fianlly making this stuff availiable (and to such a high standard), and cursing them on the other for chucking it away in the first place.
This is a collection that is really only for avid fans, as there is no comparison between this set and the series currently being shown on TV. Saying that I found most of the episodes very watchable, but the effects, as expected, are pretty basic.
Strictly for avid fans, but enjoyable anyway. Worth owning even if just for the historical factor.
On the first doctor disk are 6 episodes, parts 1 and 3 from 'The Crusade', parts 2, 5, and 10 from 'The Dalek Masterplan', and the final part from 'The Celestial Toymaker. Although 'Crusade' and 'Toymaker' are enjoyable to watch, the highlight of this disk are the surviving episodes from 'Masterplan'. Looking at the well constructed sets and props, convincing make-up and costumes, as well as the superb plot and script, once again from creator of the Daleks Terry Nation, it's even more tragic that this epic adventure, the longest serial in Dr Who's history, hasn't survived in complete form. Had it done, I'm sure that it would be 'Masterplan', and not 'Genesis', that would be remembered as the best dalek story in Dr Who.
Moving on to the first of the second doctor disks, the highlight in my opinion is the two surviving episodes from 'The Moonbase'. Okay sure, the plot is a little daft (I mean, how can a gravity generator on the moon be used to control the weather on Earth?) but the cybermen are a lot creepier in this serial than they are in the new series, particulary the voice and the hands. Also on this disk is the last remaining episode from 'The Underwater Menace', which I didn't get at all, episodes 1 and 3 from 'The Faceless Ones', and the last surviving episode from 'The Evil of the Daleks', another classic Dalek story lost in the winds of time.
The final disk contains a mix bag of episodes from the last few years of the 60's. Highlight in my opinion is either 'The Enemy of the World', with patrick troughton playing a supurb vilian as well as the Doctor, or 'The Web of Fear', with it's dark setting of an underground railway station.
Apart from the obvious drawback that we only get to see only a part of each story, my major critisim concerns 'The Crusade' and 'The Moonbase'. Being halve completed, each story has the sound tracks from the missing episodes included, but without any narration, making it difficult to follow the story. I eventually gave up and jumped straight to the next episode.
Also on each disk are surviving clips from other episodes now considered lost. My favorate are the clips from 'Masterplan episode 1', which again shows of the stunning production values of this serial, as well as the bleak tone of it.
If you want to see what Dr Who was like in it's first years, this is a good place to start. Would recomend it to any fan of the worlds longest running sci-fi series.
So this set well for my money its really aimed at fans and die hards at that the work done to the episodes is as usual top notch but when you cant see a story through to its end its frustrating but my husband lapped it up so buy it for someone who loves the original show they wont be disappointed..
