This is another must-have collection for fans of Doctor Who, '60s Doctor Who, or lost episodes. This collection covers the remainder of Season 3 under William Hartnell and includes: Mission to the Unknown, The Daleks' Masterplan, The Massacre, The Celestial Toymaker, and The Savages. It also includes a BBC Radio documentary on the missing episodes complete on its own CD. Considering that most of these CDs have been out of print and go for close to a hundred dollars used now, these collections are a boon to fans everywhere! For the price one of these CDs used, you can get them all in one collection! The stories themselves are an interesting group. The Celestial Toymaker is probably the only one that doesn't work so well in audio due to it being a largely visual story, but the rest are all very good with the Daleks' Masterplan and The Massacre standing out in particular. I can't wait for further collections to come out!
"Travel back to the early days of Doctor Who with these four adventures starring William Hartnell as the first Doctor - plus a bonus programme. Absent from the television archives, each of these stories survives only as a soundtrack recording. Now remastered, with additional linking narration, you can enjoy the adventures once more - and learn what happened to the missing episodes with a special bonus disc. "'The Daleks' Master Plan" (13 episodes, first broadcast October 1965-January 1966): The Daleks have stolen the Time Destructor, and are threatening to destroy the fabric of Time itself.
