Its your choice but 3 worthwhile stories with good extras this time
, 6 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Doctor Who Revisitations, Vol. 1 (The Caves of Androzani / The Talons of Weng-Chiang / Doctor Who: The Movie) [DVD]  (DVD)
Theres a lot of umming and arring going on over this box set and initially I was one of those doing that but having thought about it my opinions changed somewhat.
Firstly if you dont have these stories buy this...you get 2 of the greatest Dr Who stories ever made (Talons and Caves) plus the movie which wasnt so great but still well worth having, its entertaining in its own right. Its an extra release so you dont have to buy it if you dont feel you 'need' it. My initial gripe was the extra features which as a collector I feel I do wish to have. The extras on the DVDs are something I really look forward to and to have the most complete collection I will be updating mine. A pity they couldnt have done them this way first time but as others have pointed out theres reasons for that. I didnt regret re-buying Rememberance of the Daleks or The 5 Doctors, so I wont with these I should imagine.
So if you havent got them you wont regret buying this. If you're an avid collector you'll probably buy it anyway and if you already have them and are happy with what you have you dont need to. Its looking like there will 2 more sets like this so hopefully they will have better editions of Spearhead from Space, Robots of Death and Vengeance on Varos on them as well. Updated extras on The 3 Doctors and the 2 Doctors would be welcome additions too as they lacked informative documentaries first time round...cant see any William Hartnell ones needing a re-release though.
The only thing I will say though is they should have got everything out first before releasing these and maybe they should have come out as seperate releases for those who only collect certain stories.
