The Mysterious Planet - That model shoot truly is impressive. I thought it had been added to - but that *is* the original! Would love to see more of Glitz and Dibber. The commentary in the episodes was a hoot - whatever did happen to the helmets of the people that Katrica calls underground dwellers? Heh heh heh! And, um, did any other story resolve Ravolox? Wow... Now that's really a lost thread - I mean, there is another episode in the new series where that planet's, er, where it should be... Hmmm.
Mindwarp was great - loved the Tardis landing, and the unexpected tide. Great commentary as well. I have to agree with Nicola Bryant; I would have preferred the ending in this rather than what was said to have happened later in the trial. It was great acting after a great lead up, and would have given the Doctor some really good opportunities in following up with the Time Lords! Absolutely loved King Yrcanos (Brian Blessed) out-eccentricing the Doctor - "Yrcanos... It's time... we found Peri..." That was fun!
Terror of the Vervoids was a very good who-dunnit - don't want to spoil that one, and the Ultimate Foe - yet another set of episodes that raised more possible story lines.
All the episodes in Trial of a Time Lord could have very interesting to build on...
Loved this as the box set - really interesting seeing the behind the scenes here as well.
It arrived very well packaged, and on time; I would absolutely recommend this seller.
It's pretty hard to imagine having to redo various parts after a writer death, your script editor quitting and the head of Drama at the BBC making decisions based on his biases (the guy didn't like Blackadder, so nuff said).
I rather like the idea of just throwing the new companion out there.
The special features are really great. A huge number of them, and another reviewer was right in that on one the knives really come out and you get some true feelings; really unusual but appreciated.
