  1. I love this series, but, it just does not look too good on my 1080P HD setup.

    When is BBC going to wake up and upgrade these great features onto blu-ray 1080P??

  2. After the events of “The Hand of Fear” the Doctor says goodbye to Sarah Jane and returns to Gallifrey after the summons. While enroute to his own time and space he encounters a breif glimpse of the future. One in which he shoots the Lord President. The Doctor bewildered by this strange vision realizes that no Time Lord has sent for him. Now he must figure out who did and why he is the one killing the Lord President.

    Soon enough he dodges the guards and the Castellan only to find himself in the very same postion he saw in his vision. The Doctor is yet again on trial and his only way out is to run for Lord Preisdent. With little time left and those kicking at his heels for his death the Doctor has to figure out who is behind this and who would make a pawn of The Doctor or its over for all of them.

  3. I love the Galifrey episodes they give an idea of what was going on in the writers head regarding the C of E. This episode is really quick-paced and a lot of fun!

  4. Great story and the first and only time in the classic series ( 1963-1989), in wich we see The Doctor alone. Just after leaving Sara Jane on Earth, we have at last a glimpse of the great civilization of the Time Lords. Tom is at his best form, but I can of miss Sara Jane, Tom have to talk to himself a lot. Is so many new stuff in this story that I leave it for you to discover it! If you collect classic DR who adventures , this is a must have ( like genesis of the daleks)

  5. The Doctor Who that broke all the rules and got it ideas from some unique sources. First time The Doctor is not only without a companion but returns to his home planet to stop a Presidential assassin. 30 years before the Matrix movies and years before Disney Tron we have the doctor’s mind entering the computer net to go him to mind against his enemy on all sorts of battle fields taken from the writers favorite movie ideas likes Hitchock’s North by Northwest. Both the Time Lords and The Master has had previous appearances but this is the story that Doctor Who Fans first remember them appearing.
