Episode titles: “The Web Planet”, “The Zarbi”, “Escape to Danger”, “The Crater of Needles”, “Invasion”, “The Centre“. Yes, some of the effects and design work shows the low budget and yes, there is a kitsch absurdity in grown men and women dressed as ants, moths and woodlice. Don't expect quality of native 1080p however as the show was originally filmed in standard definition at this time meaning this release is upscale. My player, a LG BD610, plays PAL and NTSC system videos just fine on whatever North American TV I use.

However, the only issue with this feature is that it would be nice to learn more about the process in more detail. Everyone who has watched any of the episodes has been impressed and no one has commented on the sound being pitched wrong, demonstrating that these discs have been pitch corrected (as I read elsewhere before I bought it). The set designers needed to create the Animus character, a disembodied alien underground presence, and of course the massive planet Vortis, with the painted night sky filled with stars and moons. The missing two episodes of The Crusade have been reconstructed using off-air photographs and the original broadcast soundtrack, while remaining episodes have been newly remastered from the best available sources.In this series, the tenth Doctor takes companion Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) to New Earth and struggles to overcome the effects of regeneration. Maybe they’re also watching how sales are for this one, monitoring feedback on exactly how much the incomplete aspect hurts them. Though upconverted from standard definition source video, the picture appears very sharp and clear - even when compared to "The Next Doctor" special which was also upconverted.

Of course, some of that’s the writing, but some of it’s also how O’Brien carried herself as Vicki, refusing to be a useless, screaming hostage, I salute her for that. The release of Tom Baker - Complete Season Seven was similarly promoted with an omnibus screening of Logopolis, demonstrating the revised visual effects. Derek Francis plays the Emperor Nero as a selfishly entitled schoolboy with a sadistic streak and is certainly memorable whether or not one appreciates the jokes. Originally transmitted from December 1963 to February 1964, The Daleks introduced one of the Doctor’s most formidable and enduring foes.There is a wonderful and highly skilled team of people involved in bringing these discs to our shelves and our thanks have to go to all involved. I, for one, was a non-white person made much more comfortable by it… but not everyone will agree with me on that. The stories are cleaned up as much as possible but the effect that was used on the camera during The Web Planet is from source so not much you can do there.

Watching each story in fairly rapid succession, forming one larger overall story, as episodes had actions and consequences from one adventure overlapping onto the next. I know actors don't like being trapped in a role, but I could watch David Tennant in this role forever.Episode 3 and 4 Reconstructions - The final two episodes of Planet of Giants were edited into a single episode for transmission. Give-A-Show Slides - Sixteen stories presented on seven slides each, as featured in the Doctor Who Give-a-Show Slide Projector toy from the sixties. Also, after being abducted, the Doctor plays opossum before getting the drop on one of his attackers, leaving him hogtied for his compatriots to find. Written and performed largely as a play, it features some wonderful performances from Julian Glover, Jean Marsh and Bernard Kay.

Martin hiring a mime to coordinate the different species’ movements, adding a filter to the camera lens to give Vortis’ atmosphere a different, slightly blurred, alien look… So much detail.

With a studio map, camera locations and overlaid images of the scenes and text from the script, we can see how it all comes together to give us the final product. Using the longer-length Christmas Special to give viewers a chance to get used to a new face and mannerisms works well, and is followed by a solid season of episodes, leading to a finale where the Doctor faces not one, but two of his most dangerous old enemies. A Ed’s Note: You all can hear me screaming excitedly about script headers and dialogue amendments from here, can’t you? The entire story comes across as a bit of a mish-mash, but then again, it is a chase across space and time.
