This is not bad, do not get me wrong. Stradling gets to grips with the subject relatively well but in a rather pedestrian way however my overall gripe with this documentary is that it is not just about City of Death which is a pretty run of the mill Doctor Who story but is also about the late great Douglas Adams. Now surely a Doctor Who fan would have a natural bias to his Doctor Who work, okay this is a Doctor Who DVD after all, but come on Restoration Team and show the man some respect. Douglas Adams was far more than just another employee on Doctor Who. He was a legend and deserved far more from the DVD production process than this.
The other issue I have is one of accessibility. Stradling deconstructs the subject matter but never in a way to welcome outsiders in. It is all very very much tailored to the long term Doctor Who fan and as such is rather exclusive.
However those are minor gripes, I found it quite adequate and quite enjoyable.
