Absolutely love the EarthShock episode 5 Claymation short under special features. I don't know if this was on my DVD copy but maybe they could make more to fill in little gaps on the show. This little bit of story made my day and makes the EarthShock ending waaaaay more enjoyable:)

Additional features on the bonus disc include a new hour long interview like they did with Tom, a Panopticon '93 panel with Matthew, Janet, and Nick Courtney moderated by Nick Briggs, the Jovanka Airlines trailer for this set, and...Time Crash...!!!!!

I haven't, but I've only watched the episodes without any subtitles and any new special features. Everything there looks and sounds good to me.

Time Crash huh? Nice...I wonder if that leaves a glimmer of hope that the 5-ish Drs could find it's way onto a future season set.

If there were any, I can promise you it would have been all over the Who-net by now with an email for sending a request in for replacement discs.

I still have my spare pair they mailed to me. Not going to get rid of them, because you never know if someone might need them in the future.

Yeah, I was looking out for those headlines but didn't see any, wasn't sure if it was because the set was still just so new. How long did it take people to see the misspelled name in the credits for the Tom Baker set?

To be honest I'm still shocked they offered replacement discs for the Baker set to fix something as tiny as a mis-spelled name. Especially when there have been major mastering issues and problems with releases like "Shada" and the earlier "Moonbase", but they go unaddressed?

Sure the audio issue in "Sontaran Experiment" was a bit more major, but the re-issued "Revenge" disc for a mis-spelled name and slight flicker in the last scene is just ... wow.

Poor "Shada!!"

This was the first release of what is probably planned to be a complete rerelease of the property. And if they are perceived to not care about quality by not offering to fix even what some consider a slight issue, while others would go nuts over it, all of the future releases could have suffered as a result. A majority of people I know were waiting to order the season 19 set until AFTER others had, in case there were issues with the initial release.

Good point. I think at the time I wondered if the Tom Baker first season Blu-Ray was an experiment to test the waters. Maybe good sales justified them looking to take responsibility?

I wonder, will they see it through? All 26 seasons?

Ha! Very Happy

Oddly enough, I don't think I could bear to do that to my old Who DVDs!

Well...you gotta have complete seasons to do "complete season" sets, which isn't possible unless a LOT of work is done to recreate complete episodes and serials for the first six seasons.

To that end, all they'd have to do is create a complete animated and/or reconstructed Marco Polo for season one, the two missing episodes of The Crusade for season two, and all four episodes of The Space Pirates for season six.  The other three seasons need much more work to be completed.

All we can do is hope.
