5.0 out of 5 stars A Museum Visit And A Madcap Chase. March 31, 2010
Season Two.
The Space Museum.
After a series of weird happenings aboard ship. The TARDIS appears to land on the planet Xeros, but when travelling through time and space appearances can sometimes be deceptive.
As, "Realtime" catches up, the Tardis crew realize they have been given a glimpse of their future fate.
They must change this future or face eternity as exhibits in the Morok War Museum...
Ep.1-"The Space Museum". Wandering around the museum one of the exhibits catches their eye.
Ep.2-"The Dimensions of Time". The Doctor plays mind games with a mind probe.
Ep.3-"The Search". Vicki encourages the Xerosians to revolt.
Ep.4-"The Final Phase". The Doctor is prepared for his, "exhibition", but the revolution is successful and the Tardis crew leave Xeros, with a device called a time space visualizer.
But across the gulf of space, evil exterminating eyes have been watching them,
...and this time they mean business!
Episode one is possibly the most intriguing episode in the programmes long history, it's a shame the remaining three episodes don't quite maintain episode ones intriguing premise.
After, "The Web Planet's" overspend of most of season two's budget, this was the story that had to, cut cost's.
It does rather show, unfortunately. (The sets are very sparsely furnished.)
But still, five stars for episode one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great stories, but not so great DVD! September 11, 2010
I'm not much of a Beatles fan, but I did like the scene in "The Chase" that they cut out on this DVD release. It's not only important to emphasize the Beatles impact on popular culture at the time this episode was made, but it also has some great and funny character moments in that scene between the Doctor's companions. And the scene is NOT a few seconds long as some people put it, it's at least a couple of minutes! I loved that scene, and you don't get it here on this DVD. That said, both "The Space Museum" and "The Chase" were great stories that any Whovian would enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Had to bring the ratings up November 7, 2010
This release includes 2 unrelated stories from the William Hartnell era. The only thing that links them is that The Chase followed The Space Museum in sequential order. The first story, The Space Museum, has a nice, eerie and atmospheric beginning. However, the rest of the story, once our heroes have officially "arrived" doesn't make much sense. Yes, the Doctor's interrogation scene is a lot of fun, and it's a bit amusing to see Vicki as a rebellion leader, but Ian and Barbara are a bit wasted. So much of this story is sub-par, set design, costume design, story development, that it's not really not worth watching more than once.

The Chase brings the beloved Daleks back. The Daleks have somehow gotten their hands on a time machine and have decided that they must follow the Doctor through space and time to destroy him. Every week was a new location, like Terry Nation's previous story, The Keys of Marinus, making sure that the designers had to design new sets and alien costumes for each week. It's an odd assembly, that seems more like, hey what if the Daleks met Frankenstein's monster, yeah how about Dracula too! You know what, we can blame the Marie Celeste mystery on the Daleks, etc., etc. It's not a bad story, it's just not that interesting. The beginning with the time T.V. apparatus is fun, but is quickly left behind. It almost would have been more interesting to have the Doctor, Ian and Barbara watching various instances in history that are now wrong because a Dalek has shown up, and the Doctor realizes that he has to go correct this.

Everyone is so upset that somewhere between 10 seconds and 2 minutes have been cut from the Chase, but no one has really mentioned the true crime here... Why did I have to get the Space Museum just to watch the Chase?!

Verified Purchase
This is hands down the best William Hartnell Doctor Who DVD release. I've purchased just about every classic Doctor Who release available and while I find the first doctor years weaker than Troughton, Pertwee, and Baker... These stories are still excellent Doctor who stories that are very important to hardcore fans.

Disc 1: The Space Museum (4 episodes) is very enjoyable story despite some fans dislike of these episodes. Great chemistry in the cast, and a welcome guest star if you're a sci-fi fan in Jeremy Bulloch(known for playing Boba Fett). Special features are very good including an interview with Bill Hartnell's granddaughter.

Disc 2: The Chase (6 episodes) is probably the best early Dalek story after "Dalek Invasion of Earth". The way the story moves from one location to the next so quickly makes the story drag much less than other 6 parters.

Disc 3: the special features are fantastic. With a career retrospective on the daleks, and William Russell talking about Ian and barbara's final adventure, this set is essential to doctor who fans.

Side Note: I've never seen the beatles clip, so no I don't know what I'm missing. But I enjoy the beatles because I like the beatles, and i enjoy Doctor Who because I like doctor who. One doesn't make or break the other for me. It'd be a shame if doctor who fans don't buy this because of negative reviews that in no way correlate with the actual stories.
