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!

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.

I just finished watching the shows (with and without the commentary); I am working my way through the other special features.

I was especially influenced to get "The Chase" because Ian and Barbara leave, so it is a minor pivotal show (major pivotal = The Doctor regenerates; minor pivotal = change of companions)

"The Space Museum" - I've read the novelization, and it is better than the show. I didn't think the show was all that bad; I was pretty taking aback at all of the nasty things that the people in it had to say about it. Vicki (Maureen O'Brien) is particularly nasty and harsh about the show; if this was her first commentary, I'm rather surprised she was asked to do any more. She stated repeatedly that she remembers almost nothing of her Doctor Who days (and she apparently doesn't care). Apparently the director / direction was terrible, and he was never asked back. Anyway, there is at least one huge flaw; at some point, the "bad guys" (Morlocks?) are sending in paralyzing gas to drive out their enemies; Barbara and a Xeron are trapped and pass out... but then later revive and stagger out, with no explanation. After listening to the commentary and as pointed out in the reviews, the philosophical part to this show is fascinating... you see your own future; can you avoid it? Is something as small as losing a button going to change the future? Great idea. The novelization (by the man who wrote the script) is actually a pretty good read.

"The Chase" - I think I've read this as well, because I've never seen the show before, but I remember reading the Beatles scene; I didn't realize it was missing when I watched the show (I remembered that they were supposed to be in it, and looked for it). I eventually realized that they had been cut.
