During the 1970s, the BBC implemented its mass purging policy of old videotapes in order to make room in their stock offices. This meant that a lot of the Doctor Who serials concerning the first, second and even third doctors were erased from the system. Now that Doctor Who has grown so immense in popularity, this is something that the BBC is attempting to rectify, by leading investigations into finding lost episodes from outside sources, such as film collectors or foreign television broadcasters. The purging was before the notion of home media took effect, and subsequently television producers realised that there was a lot of money to be made in this mass home media distribution in the form of LPs, beta-max/VHS and, most recently DVD.
A lot of Doctor Who fans have searched high and low for odd copies of these missing episodes and there have been some surprising discoveries. However, at this moment, all that remains of these serials are the original television soundtracks in audio form, which were lovingly recorded by fans at the time of broadcast with the use of sound-capturing devices. These were sent to the BBC and through digital clean-up and remastering, were released as individual audio-book titles, with linking narration by original cast members, in order to bridge the gap between these lost stories. All of these titles have been previously released individually, some as part of the 'BBC Radio Collection' and others as part of the current 'BBC Audio' imprint, with the latter including bonus interviews with the cast members of the particular serials they were a part of.
This first-volume box-set incorporates the first five lost TV Episodes that were previously released individually.

I was a fan of the Tom Baker DOCTOR WHO and I've watched the most recent Doctors, but never had much interest in Doctors one through three. I discovered my local library had considerably added to the DOCTOR WHO titles in their audio section, so I thought I'd check this one out. I spent much of my time during "Marco Polo" wishing someone would slap some sense into Polo. The mysterious cave in that storyline was a good bit. "The Reign of Terror" had so many escapes and recaptures going on that I could feel sorry for the original viewers having to wait from week to week. (Personally, I thought the Doctor was being such an arrogant twit that he deserved everything bad that happened to him.) By "The Crusade" I was actually caring about what happened to the characters even while I was contrasting the show's portrayal of Richard the Lionhearted with what I'd learned after I graduated from college. "Galaxy 4" is the only storyline that is set on another planet instead of in the past. I had my own guess about what the Rills would turn out to be, but I was wrong. It's always fun when a thorough-going fictional rotter gets a well-deserved fate, so the end to "Galaxy 4" had me smirking. My favorite storyline was "The Mythmakers," which kept me chuckling. I dare say that its portrayal of some of the main characters from the Trojan war as upperclass twits, as well as Odysseus as a boor with no class whatsoever, had poor Homer turning in his grave. Loved the opening trash-talking battle between Achilles and Hector! The show came up with a very credible reason why Cassandra wasn't believed that didn't involve any curses. I found myself regretting that the video had been lost well before I was finished listening to this set.

The interviews weren't bad, either. It was interesting to hear the actors' take on the characters they portrayed, not to mention the less-than-ideal conditions under which the show was produced. I'm very glad I decided to check this collection out.

odd to "hear", and not see Doctor Who, but it's great - you can tell this is British entertainment - the dialogues are so well written, it actually works almost as well in audio as in TV format... couldn't bring myself to buy the other two boxes out there - they are somewhat pricey, after all - but I will probably, at some point...
