The season as displayed here is incomplete. Season 16 consists of: The Ribos Operation, The Pirate Planet, The Stones of Blood, The Androids of Tara, The Power of Kroll, and The Armageddon Factor.

This listing (on the date of this posting), was missing The Stones of Blood and The Androids of Tara (they are available at Amazon for purchase as DVDs apparently, or Netflix for rental)

This is a season that is referred to as the Key to Time story arc, and there are six pieces to the "key" only four pieces/story arcs are are listed here.

The Key To Time is a Dr. Who Classic, The episodes for two of the segments are missing. What a disappointment. It isn't the only season like this either. It seems they really aren't interested in giving you the full season to see. I know it isn't Amazon's fault, but if the Headline is Season XX then it should either have them all or it should say limited episodes only.

4 episodes of the "Ribos Operation", 4 episodes of the Pirate Planet, 4 episodes of the Power of Kroll, and 6 episodes of the Armageddon Factor. This Starts off with the Doctor finding and eventually at the end using the "Key to Time". this is the most number of episodes you will get for your money. The quality of the color and audio are great. HOWEVER we don't get to see how the doctor gets the 2nd key to time and I remember also we got to see him and Romana put the key segments together. These episodes do not show anyone putting the pieces together. Otherwise i'd have given it 5 stars.

Modern or classic Doctor Who, it just doesn't get any better. Classic Doctor Who may not have the splash of modern effects, but that's part of the charm.

Great to have these available on Prime. Easy to watch in downtime moments -- nice to have 20 minute episodes. Would be better if they flowed seamlessly into the next episode.

We very much enjoy watching classic Doctor Who--Tom Baker is one of our favorite doctors, and it's nice to see him in action again.
