The first thing to strike about this video release was the absolutely awful packaging - It comes in a shocking pink video cover . Would the Cybermen wish to be associated with such a garish cover ? I don`t think so either
The clips used are more numerous than the number used in the previous YEARS tapes of the first three Doctors ( But that`s not saying much ) and we do get to see several of the cast from the episodes featured so I guess that`s a bonus , but there`s a problem with the stories selected: Despite being written by different writers both THE MOONBASE and THE WHEEL IN SPACE have very similar plots of multi racial humans being under attack on remote outposts by Cybermen . In fact nearly every single DOCTOR WHO story featuring these metalic giants uses the exact same plot
But I shouldn`t complain too much , as I said this video release is much better than the video releases featuring random episodes of the first three doctors , but I can`t help thinking it could have been much better
