The 3rd volume of Doctor Who : Revistations continues with Tomb of the Cybermen, The 3 Doctors and The Robots of Death. While these are good choices, I do agree with the other reviewer that The Ark in Space should have been on this Box Set instead of The 3 Doctors.

If they do a 4th Revistations, the choices I would have is 1 -The Ark in Space. 2 - The Vistation and 3 - Ghost Light.

Thanks for Reading.

  the final re-issue set

| | See all dickiep's reviews (137)

Like the two previous sets, I still find one selection a bit of a strange one (Three Doctors), when to be honest the Ark in Space has very little on the extra front. Anyway firstly all these stories are some of the best examples of Classic who and are all worthy of five stars. My main problem is I would rather have these sets as stand alone, leaving the fan to buy which one they want to up grade, as the price tag is high for DVD's we all have if we are fans. First of is Tomb of the Cybermen, now this is the only remaining complete story from season four a disgrace I know. Tomb was the first Troughton story, and was issued before the vid-fire process(returning the picture to its original video look)had been invented, so the picture quality is much improved, even though a lot of work had gone into the original issue, the extra on this one are Morris Barry introduction The director's introduction from the 1993 VHS release.Title Sequence Tests and build-up elements for the Patrick Troughton title sequence.Late Night Line-Up - behind the scenes at the BBC Visual Effects department to interview Jack Kine. The Final End - The Evil of the Daleks is mostly missing from the BBC archives. A small taste of the climactic battle. Abominable Snowmen Audio Trailer,Coming Soon Trailer, The Lost Giants Cast and crew look back on the making of the story.The Curse of the Cybermen's Tomb - Sir Christopher Frayling and Dr Debbie Challis examine the ancient Egyptian origins to the story. Cybermen Extended Edition A history of the Cybermen. The Magic of VidFIRE A look at the technology behind the VidFIRE process.Sky Ray Advert - 1960's Doctor Who themed promo for Walls Sky Ray ice lolly.Next the anniversary Three Doctors, not the best story, but it is just a delight to see all three Doctor together. I was surprised at this one only because it had quite a few extras, but the new ones have much improved this issue and are pretty good they include Happy Birthday To Who,the making of this anniversary story. Was Doctor Who Rubbish?, Raising a defence against criticism of the classic series.Girls, Girls, Girls The 1970s Katy Manning, Caroline John (Liz Shaw) and Louise Jameson (Leela) on being a 1970s Doctor Who girl. Pebble Mill At One - Archival interview with the second Doctor Patrick Troughton and visual effects wizard Bernard Wilkie. Blue Peter Jon Pertwee introduces the Whomobile. BSB Highlights Cast and crew discuss The Three Doctors The Five Faces Of Doctor Who The full trailer for the 1981 repeat season which included The Three Doctors. BBC1 Trailer 40th Anniversary Trailer. Finally we get on of my favourite story and the first Tom Baker story issued on DVD The Robot of the Death, this is one of those story's that you would recommend to anyone who had never seen the classic series, it just works so well and even after just two story's Leela has settled in so sell, now a two disc special it is a lot better than the original issue due to the advances in restoration, the extras are great considering there were almost none on the original, New commentary with actors Tom Baker (the Doctor), Louise Jameson (Leela) and Pamela Salem (Toos), and director Michael E Briant.The Sandmine Murders Cast and crew look back at the making of the story.Robophobia Toby Hadoke takes a humorous look at the history of robots.Studio Sound Example of a studio scene before the robot voice effects were added.Model Shots Black and white timecoded recording of the original model insert film.Studio Floor Plan Interactive view of the studio layout via the original floor plan drawings.Continuity Off-air continuity for the first episode's original transmission plus mute continuity slides.If you can afford , its great re-issue

Digitally remastered with a few new additions to the extras. Good stories to add to your who collection if you don't have them already.
