Jon Pertwee has always been my favorite Doctor. Especially since I got to meet him and Elisabeth Sladen in the late '80s. I've had a Prime Membership here for almost 10 straight years, mainly due to all the purchasing I do with Amazon. It was an added perk when they added video streaming to the Membership, and I have really been enjoying it. Up until a few days ago.

I have been slowly working my way through all the Classic episodes that have survived (what a disaster the loss of all those great Doctor Who shows is!). I had just finished watching "The Three Doctors" (one of the best all-time episodes, imo), and was about to proceed to the next episode, when this season suddenly fell out of the Prime Membership Catalog.

From what I can tell, it's the only Classic Doctor Who season that's no longer available to Prime Members. The reply I received from Amazon to my inquiry of this did little more than confirm my own observations.

That being said, while these are great to be able to stream for free under a Prime Membership, they just aren't worth $1.99 for a 25 minute episode. If this doesn't return to the Prime Catalog, you'd be better off investing that money on the paperback of "The Three Doctors" and going on to Season 12 (the next available season).

I hope that whatever licensing issue has arisen is speedily dealt with so this season can be returned to the Prime Membership Catalog.

I recently introduced my 11 year old to the greatness of Dr. Who. Started him off with Tom Baker, and thought this season would be a great way to introduce him to the 1st three Doctors. Great time bonding with him over some of the memories of my youth, laughing at the cheesy special effects, but nonetheless enjoying the story immensely.

This was a great episode. I love how all the different actors had such good chemistry together - you can tell they're all having fun with it.

As a fan of DW you will fall in love with these episodes. You get the actual chance to go back in time and check on some important characters that are mentioned in the "new" DW episodes such as: Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sara Jane and more.

Especial effects may be not as good as we are use to nowadays, but the stories are really good.

Enjoy.

Considering it is about 40 years old this Dr. Who still stands the test of time. It is dated but the fact that you see the first 3 original doctors makes it worth while. I love the new series of Dr. Who and this gives one perspective and history. I think any Dr. Who fan should watch it.

Old and new at the same time, lovely production values in this color film version. Doctor awakens with a new face but has no trouble asserting dominance over former cohorts and charming new friends. Great relationship with devoted assistant. Great '70's hairdo's on men and women ….

Oh, for the days when Doctor Who had a real plot. The series from 1963-1987 dismissively referred to as the 'classic' series is the only series worth watching. The current series has doctors replaced just about every season and in one case (John Hurt) not even given a chance to perform more than a few seconds. There was also the one-off regeneration from a 1996 movie which might count as the same type appearance as when Peter Cushing did the 2 theatrical releases when Bill Hartnell was giving the original real series substance.

In the original series, the Doctors stayed around for awhile. The reason Pertwee did not do 6 seasons as Dr. Who was because the BBC wouldn't pay him what he wanted. They had great shows and acting, but smaller budgets, at least for the performers. Although William Hartnell stayed just over 3 years, he was in about 134 episodes. Davison stayed about the same time, doing only about 70. Colin Baker was unjustly fired and the show got the ax shortly after Sylvester McCoy took over. It's as if the powers that be want to destroy the Doctor they way he is constantly done away with. He only had 12 regenerations in the original series worth watching.

The Pertwee series and fourth season is generally brilliant. If you are able to appreciate a story and not get hung up on CSO and having to film at quarries and in low-budget locations and stages, you might love this. If you aren't able to wrap your head around any sci-fi that doesn't use megabuck Hollywood special effects and high school story plots, go back to the Boobyprize Federation and don't look back.

The biggest complaint is the expense of watching the original real series. The stories are great. Now, you have to pay dearly for quality.
