About this deal

I corresponded a few more times, admonishing them(for what it’s worth) for not keeping me updated – allowing me to purchase elsewhere. They’ve asked for proof of purchase and said they should be able to get a new booklet out within 2 – 3 weeks. They filmed the trailer for season 8 roughly the same as the behind the sofa so it probably made sense to use him.

So imagine if the brilliant people in charge of The Collection range went to the time and effort to tidy up these images. The Time Monster is one of the ones I always think gets treated unfairly in the polls it is no classic but there are many that are much worse. Season 8 is another triumph and, despite the adversity offered up the quality of the original archive episodic material, it’s another must-have purchase (the new features alone are irresistible) that again demonstrates the astonishing care and attention lavished upon classic Doctor Who in an era where physical media is constantly said to be heading towards obsolescence. Regarding Delta and the Bannerman that was series totally humiliation , could the series sink any lower than that. The Claws of Axos received two DVD releases, as the first was early in the range and could be superceded with improved restoration techniques and bonuses.

Oh, and watch out for Sergeant Osgood, father and inspiration of the new series character of the same name.

All five serials from the eighth season of the classic BBC sci-fi adventure drama starring Jon Pertwee as the legendary Time Lord. This is a list of Bonus Features available on the original DVD releases but not ported over to this Blu-ray release. Coming Soon: Shada/More Than Thirty Years in the TARDIS removed, not on season 17 but perhaps The Wilderness Years.Completing the ‘UNIT family’ – though not a member of UNIT and very much the black sheep of the family – is Roger Delgado as the Master, a renegade Time Lord and most intentionally the Moriarty to the Doctor’s Sherlock Holmes. I recommend the UK limited edition over the US version of this set because the packaging is nicer, it includes a booklet detailing the contents, and each disc label has different art work. She teamed up really well with John Levene and Richard Franklin on series 10 maybe that trio again for 9? Almost despite this, it managed to produce three stories that are justifiably regarded as classics – but the show needed cohesion, it needed a sense of continuity from story to story and Season 8 was where that would come about. But for the die-hard collector, they do have a remarkable selection of extras and look extremely handsome up there on the shelf.

Decided to get the standard edition of this blu ray set as the limited editions are getting too expensive, you get exactly the same content on each disc, the only difference is a slimmer case and the booklet has less pages.Over the whopping EIGHT discs there is a wealth of additional features; studio footage, treats from the archive including BBC production files, convention footage, photo galleries, scripts, costume designs and even more. The Daemons finishes the set and probably for me Jon Pertwee's best serial seeing The Doctor and UNIT take on The Master who is trying to control an ancient evil power. Below are an example from each story – note some of the improvement can only be appreciated when viewing the video in motion; these images demonstrate the decreased screen area on the generally better BD restoration.
