Customer Review

on 18 October 2011
I purchased this 2 DVD set with great anticipation of finally owning a copy of one of the Dr. Who adventures that I remember most clearly from my childhood. This package delivers on all counts, be it being able to watch the original version or re-edited versions, in addition to a variety of interesting extras.
The interviews with individuals from the original cast and production technicians are fascinating and send one back to another time entertainment-wise when things had more substance and those that acted and produced at the time were likewise blessed with a more professional and grounded attitude, no trace of prima-donnas here! The strong East/West political tensions of the time are also alluded to within this adventure. The updated version is completed very carefully and with a mind to simply complimenting the original, with the added visuals improving the look of the programme to a more "modern" standard, although just right in proportion,and not over-the-top. The updated ray-gun effects are really quite good, and more importantly, the improved Dalek voices in the revised version are a definite bonus and a vast improvement in my opinion upon the rather tinny and lifeless originals, a detail that was not adequately attended to in the original version and which left the Daleks a much less menacing presence. I would strongly recommend this set to anyone who enjoys this series or simply televison representative of the era. Excellent!!!....I have already enjoyed it several times since receiving it.
