Old School Doctor Who

Farewell, Great Macedon: adapted from an unused script this has the feel of the classic Marco Polo and is lovingly made in the style of that era. Genuinely gave me the feeling it had been unearthed from old tapes! Pure joy. It takes up the vast majority of the boxset.

The Fragile Yellow Arc Of Fragrance: this is a very experimental piece of writing, also from the same writer and time, and therefore is an interesting little curiosity that fans will be fascinated by but will have differing opinions of. Personally, I enjoyed it but it’ll not live long in the memory. It would have been a great showcase for Jackie Hill but alas not to be.

The readings by Russel and Ford are a pleasure just because it’s them but you also get to appreciate how unique they are and why the show took off so quickly! I hope there will be more like this.

Emotional

Simply loved it, it was emotional but enjoyable all the same, you can imagine how it would look like if it got in the show.

I must say, after watching Doctor who {20/1th century version) I got curious to watch the classic after finding out that there was a series before.
To be honest I haven't come further than season two because I can't seem to say goodbye to Barbara and Ian.
So I'm glad to hear that there are audios with more adventures with them.
