Additional Features:

There's 15 minutes worth of deleted and/or extended scenes and four minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, but by far the finest DVD feature is the three-way commentary track, with Colin Baker, Nicola Bryant, and Nabil Shaban. Affectionately sending up the show and themselves, while still demonstrating a great love for Doctor Who, the track sometimes degenerates into trivia but at its best is simply hilarious. Both original BBC1 trailers and a continuity link are included, as is a photo gallery and the option to listen with the unfinished "production sound," something likely to appeal only to die-hard fans. Rather more interesting are the optional onscreen production notes, which offer a wealth of behind-the-scenes information. The extras are completed with a small selection of outtakes. The sound is strong, clear mono, and the full-screen transfer is good enough to reveal the weaknesses in the original studio-bound video production. --Gary S. Dalkin
