This review is for the selection of episodes on pffer, not the shpws themselves. There are *many* more Classic Who episodes already released on DVD above what is on offer here. If anyone wanted to digitize their Who collection Play is not the place to come. With so many episodes missing people should look for nother service, stick to buying the DVDs, or torrent.

Having watched Doctor Who in order over the past year this is a somewhat ordinary selection - so here's some suggestions 1. Daleks, Aztecs, Rescue, Time Meddler 2. As you are 3. Spearhead from Space, Day of the Daleks, Sea Devils, Carnival of Monsters, Green Death 4. Ark in Space, Genesis of the Daleks, Terror of the Zygons, Deadly Assassin, Weng-Chiang, Stones of Blood, City of Death, Warriors' Gate 5. Kinda, Earthshock, Snakedance, 5 Drs, Androzani, 6. Revelation, 7. Remembrance, Ghostlight, Survival

You'd sell more if you had all the Tom Baker episodes especially with Leela. And well said 7-10-16 reviewer (or 10-7-16 if america date structure)
