    I wonder if they’ll be a profile on Deborah Watling and Wendy Padbury asfterall they are the only 2nd Doctor companion actors to not have a profile about them

    It is great that the first run complete of The Doctor Who History collection is Patrick Troughton’s era. He had the job of taking over from the great William Hartnell who defined the role and in my opinion Patrick Troughton was the best Doctor and his success in the role and the stories from his era paved the way for the future Doctors to follow.

    The release of this book will compete the Troughton era. The first of the classic era Doctors to have every story available to read an archive of.

      It’s ironic that whilst Troughton’s full archive can be read, much of it can’t be seen.

    They should’ve used Mr Quill for Fury, he was quite a freaky character along with his accomplice

    My favourite story in this book is ‘The Dominators’. I find ‘Fury from the Deep’ overrated and not that enjoyable to listen to on audio in all honesty, I enjoy ‘The Wheel in Space’ which I feel is very underrated. I may well be in the minority, but I really like ‘The Dominators’. The Quarks are great, the two argumentative Dominators are fun, and there’s some lovely acting dumb humour from Troughton and Hines in episode 2. I may be delusional, but I find ‘The Dominators’ to be a little gem.

    Why does The Second Doctor look like a cartoon on the front?

      I was thinking how much better he looked on this cover compared to the last one (which someone suggested was a composite).

      It’s because they colour them in. Even the colour photos are given an art like wash so they sort of look like a painting. Some more than others.

      He doesn’t, but the last one certainly was a composite (part of it was from a Three Doctors photo). Proven fact.
