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.

I am heartbroken that Amazon has decided to stop making DW available free for Prime members. It was a major source of value for my membership. I had enjoyed DW as a teen, but never got into the more recent reboot until I could watch episodes whenever I wanted on Prime. What a thrill ride! I mean that both when I could enjoy the newer series and also reliving some of my favorite episodes with Tom Baker, Pertwee, etc. My son likes K-9! I really hope Amazon rethinks this decision.

I haven't seen Doctor Who with Tom Baker since the 80's. You'll never know how excited I was when I found this! It's just the way I remembered it, the best Sci-fi show ever! Season 16 carries on the tradition of Dr Who's great sense of humor, crazy antics, and insane ideas that always work. The Doctor applies his knowledge to fix problems as they arise and to fight the bad guys. Tom Barker is just simply awesome as always, great season, great show.

In episode #17 (part 1) listen for a bonus at the 2:26 mark, give or take a second. That being said, Tom Baker's Dr. was the best until the new 2005-present series. Historically in real time this is a 'post Star Wars' timeline. Keeping to the look and feel of Dr. Who was getting lost as the 80's progressed but this is still in the good phase of the show's run.

The excellent work done at the show's inception set the tone for all that followed. While the faces, personalities, and the TV magic may change with time, its tradition of unsurpassed quality in all of it's elements does not. Dr. Who's got class.

The older Dr. Who series always has a theatre quality to it. Tom Baker is the Doctor I grew up with, so it feels good to stop by and see these episodes again. This one features Romana, one of the better companions I feel (though she was kind of forced on the Doctor).

Generations today always want a female Time Lord (ok by me), and well, there you go. Romana is a Time "Lady". She's as smart as the Doctor, but lacks the experience he has traveling the universe. She also seems to usually be very calm in a tight situation against his silly antics some times. They make a good pair.

So if you ever wanted to see what a female Time Lord (excuse me, Lady) might be like, check out these episodes.
