    Remarkable ending for the First Doctor

    Despite this program being produced in 1966,England, it still holds up as a creepy and effective story. Episode 4 of 4 is animated since the original print for the fourth episode has been lost in time (if only the BBC knew how important it would be to save Who from the furnace). Those who are Sci Fi fans would love this title, especially since the Cybermen were the precursor to the Borg from Star Trek TNG. The atmosphere combined with some very decent acting from a multi-cultural cast make this a wonderful example of science fiction. The budget for the production was slim, however this did not stop the designers and writers from creating a story that still holds up today. This DVD is filled with wonderful extras, Coming attractions, and restored original episodes from the First Doctor era.

    A solid farewell to the Original Doctor

    First off, the description is wrong, this is only a 2 disc set. There has never been a 3 disk version available. Outside of that, this is a great story. The Doctor (William Hartnell) and his companiions Ben and Polly arrive in Antarctica in 1986 just in time for the Cybermen to arrive on Earth. The special features, like all Doctor Who DVDs are extraordinary, including production notes, commentaries and much, much more. Sadly, most of the final episode does not exist in the BBC archives, so it is represented here as an animated form, alongside the version released for video cassette many years ago. I highly recommend this to any fan of Doctor Who, or for someone just getting into the 1960's era of the show.

    Lost And Found

    In the 1970s, the BBC cleared out their program archives, resulting in the loss of many Doctor Who stories from the 1960s. For decades, only episode 3 of this 4-part story survived in the archives until 2011, when a private collector, who had no idea he owned the only surviving copy of episode 2, returned it to the BBC. Both episodes (the earliest surviving with the 2nd Doctor) are presented here, with episodes 1 and 2 replaced with stills synced up to the surviving soundtrack. Definitely worth watching as a rare example of early Doctor Who!

    The First Doctor's Last Story

    In failing health, William Hartnell had to relinquish his role as The Doctor, and this was his final adventure. This is also the first story to introduce the concept of regeneration, the ability for a Time Lord to escape death by creating a new body. The fourth and final episode is, sadly, missing from the BBC archives, but has been recreated in animation. The original reconstruction of episode four that appeared on the original VHS release is also available as a bonus feature.

    Classic Cyberman Episode

    While this may not be the best Doctor Who episode ever made, it's an important one for a few reasons. First, we meet the Cybermen. Not as creepy as later appearances, but still effective. Second, we say goodbye to William Hartnell as the concept of the Doctor regenerating is introduced. The special features are well worth the time, especially "Frozen Out" and the all to brief Hartnell interview from 1966. Also worth noting is the fact that this is a 2-disc release, not 3-disc as this item is listed.

    This Doctor Who story is the 2nd Doctors first encounter with the cybermen since regenerating in the story The 10th Planet, Which was the first ever cybermen story and the last for the first Doctor played by William Hartnell. a few episodes are animated though because original footage has been lost and all they had was the audio to work with, but they did wonders with making the animation match the footage they have for the other episode. all in all a must have for any Doctor Who fan.

    If you are a fan of Doctor Who, this is a great DVD to see one of the formative early appearances of the Cybermen interacting with one of the greatest Doctors (the Second Doctor played by Patrick Troughton). The program itself is delightful and the special features that the BBC includes on each Doctor Who disk are much appreciated. Highly recommended for all fans of Doctor Who.

    The final episode for the very first Doctor, William Hartnell. This one should be in everyone's Dr. Who collection. Up until several years ago, the regeneration scene was lost. Luckily it was found in a copy owned by a local grade school. Buy this now!
