5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Doctor Who at it's best!!, January 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Reign of Terror (Story 8) (DVD)
I love this 6 part story because it is just history and not Sci-Fi. When Doctor Who started it was an educational program!! The Doctor and companions traveled back in time as a fun way for kids to learn and see historical events ie.: The Aztecs, the rein of terror in France, Marco Polo (which I hope will be next to be animated.) King Richard The Lion Hearted ect. ect., also to teach them a bit about science too which is why Willian Hartnel often times sounds like a college professor. This all stopped with the Second Doctor Patrick Troughton I believe The Highlanders where we meet long running companion Jammie McCrimmon was the last straight historic story with no aliens or monsters.

As for the BBC having found the original audio tracks for the 2 missing episodes (4. The Tyrant of France and 5. A Bargain of Necessity) it's thanks to kids who recorded the audio on reel to reels and the new cassette tapes that we have the audio. On of the bonus features for the Partick Troughton story The Invasion (The first Doctor Who to have animated episodes filling in the missing ones) goes into details about how they cleaned up and spliced together different audio sources to get the best quality they could. If you get the missing episodes cd set these home made recordings are the soundtrack you're listening too same with the loose cannon reconstructions

I say a giant three cheers to the BBC for working hard to satisfy the fans and get these lost storylines to us devoted fans I can't wait for more in the future!
