Revisitations Box Set

The Revisitations Box Set, available in October, contains three classic Doctor who releases. Some might even argue that they are some of the best classic Doctor Who serials ever made. The fact that all three are already available on DVD however has had many fans claiming that the release is nothing more than a money making exercise. Of course, we would never be so cynical here at The Doctor In The TARDIS.

The seven disc set covers the Fourth Doctor serial The Talons Of Weng Chiang, the Fifth Doctor serial The Caves Of Androzani and the Eighth Doctors only outing in The Television Movie.

Each serial has been remastered and cleaned up since it's original release, and is packed with loads of extras and bonus features. Below is a lost of some of the special features you can expect.
