    Are the covers of the dvds the orginal or the new ones?

    Are these housed in one DVD box like the repackaged new series box sets or are they seperate releases in one big box?…

    Why 4 discs though?

    Should have swapped Earthhsock for The Five Doctors instead

      If it is a fifth Doctor related release, The Five Doctors, on average, features more non-fifth Doctor doctors and therefore is “the” least representative, however good it might be.

      My take on this is if it is trying to be “an introduction” it is more like “start, middle and end”.

      But that’s a multi Doctor episode and this collection intends to focus on Davison.
      Also, Earthshock has the brilliant David Banks Cyberleader and he is eeeeeexceeeelent!

    This is a great idea! These could be a good introduction to classic who. Wonder if they are gonna do these for the other doctors.
