The new limited edition Blu-ray box set in the ongoing series of classic Doctor Who seasons is the third release to feature Tom Baker’s Doctor and includes some of the programme’s all-time great stories.
Originally broadcast September 1976–April 1977, Season 14 saw the departure of much-loved companion Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and the introduction of warrior woman Leela (Louise Jameson); the return of the Master and a deeper look into Time Lord society; killer robots aboard a mobile mine; and an absolute classic of the series – The Talons of Weng-Chiang, which brilliantly combines Sherlock Holmes with The Phantom of the Opera and Jack the Ripper in foggy Victorian London.
For the record, the stories included are: The Masque of Mandragora, The Hand of Fear, The Deadly Assassin, The Face of Evil, The Robots of Death and the aforementioned fan favourite The Talons of Weng-Chiang. All 26 episodes have been newly remastered for Blu-ray and the extensive bonus features include new documentary Our Sarah Jane, celebrating the life of Elisabeth Sladen; new audio commentaries from Tom Baker on selected episodes; Matthew Sweet in conversation with producer Philip Hinchcliffe; and new VFX for Talons, which appears to have fixed the risible giant rat scene!
This Limited Edition Collection is a must-have for Whovians, so grab it while stocks last.
