This cracking three-disc DVD boxset comprises 'The Keeper of Traken', 'Logopolis' and 'Castrovalva' - adventures that saw both the return of the Doctor's arch-enemy Master, plus the transition from Tom Baker's Doctor to Peter Davison's. Prepare for not one but two new companions, killer statues, the slow destruction of the Universe, cunning disguises, big beards, recursive occlusion and stick-on celery. What a combination!
