A Real Classic,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Web of Fear [DVD] (DVD)
It was such an exciting time last October when the BBC called a press conference to announce the recovery of missing Doctor Who episodes, and speculation was arife as to which episodes had been found. I was absolutely delighted when I heard which episodes had been found: 'The Enemy of the World' and 'The Web of Fear', which was long considered a "Holy Grail" find.
I purchased the episodes on iTunes immediately and pre ordered the DVDs as soon as they were up. I was slightly dismayed when I learnt that neither DVD would contain any of the usual special features such as a making of etc. But I'm sure SE's of both stories will be released at some point in the future.
Episode 3 of this story, is sadly still missing and is represented on this DVD by a reconstruction, which combinesthe original off air soundtrack and the Telesnaps taken by John Cura during the original transmission. Although it would of been nice to have an animated episode to fill in the gap, the reconstruction does the job just fine.
This truly is one of the best Doctor Who stories of all time, and is a great addition to anyone's DVD collection.
