Though by no means among the best of the Baker episodes, the E-Space Trilogy delivers plenty of thrills in its three stories. Fans may find areas to quibble over--especially in regard to Adric, whose presence pales in comparison to Baker’s previous companions--but they bear up well in regard to solid plotting and consistent entertainment, especially when compared to the lighter tone of the previous season, which was overseen by Douglas Adams of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy fame. Baker and Ward are once again the anchors of the show, and her departure is an unfortunate one (the Doctor would struggle to find an equally strong companion in the years that followed); Baker of course, remains a pleasure as the Time Lord, though one can occasionally perceive his growing dissatisfaction with the role (he would depart the series at the end of the season). And perhaps that’s the reason why he is absent from the set’s wealth of extras, leaving Waterhouse to contribute the majority of the commentaries, though Ward weighs in on Warriors’ Gate. Archival footage from UK TV chronicles Waterhouse’s debut on the series and preserves the original continuity announcements from the BBC broadcasts, while featurettes cover everything from Ward’s stylish wardrobe to the making of each episodes. One of the most interesting extras is “Leaves of Blood,” a 20-minute examination of vampires in literature and history, and featuring comments by such noted authors as Ramsay Campbell and Kim Newman. Deleted scenes and an isolated score option round out the supplemental features. -- Paul Gaita
The extras are of a "documentary-level" quality, and are very thorough.
What more could you want, Tom Baker and Lalla Ward perfect chemistry as the Doctor and Romana and K9 played by John Leeson.
Romana gets more to do than the Doctor in this story and her exit seems to be the perfect scenario for a spin-off series.
The E-SPACE trilogy was a great favorite set of adventures when I was a youth, and it still remains to me the epitome of what made classic Dr. Who truly great. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Tinfoot

Tom Baker was the greatest doctor ever, and this was some of the better string of episodes of his reign atop the time lords! Bought this for my father, perfect gift option!Published on February 26, 2012 by Matt D
While these aren't my favorite Dr. Who episodes, they are very good and end with the departure of Romana, one of the doctors most popular companions. Read morePublished on June 9, 2011 by R. Shoemaker
And just like the Alzarains, the Doctor goes full circle a lot to. This trilogy starts with the dullest of the three stories in Full Circle. Read morePublished on March 27, 2011 by Judy K. Hoyle
The extras are very informative, and the reduced price is good, since you're getting three stories in the box set. Read morePublished on January 25, 2011 by danak
