Beginnings alongside New Beginnings sounds tempting. I'll be honest though aside from The Dalekx it's not my favorite stories. I'll admit the shocking truth that Hartnell was a lesser doctor for me. ( I preferred Troughton over him)...I now prepare for the lashing by fellow Whovians.

If you want colour rather than black and white then The Dalek War box is good value - 12 episodes for £11.49

or Beneath the Surface which is 18 episodes for £10. This represents best value being three stories.

You sir definitely know your doctor who. I was actually looking at both sets today.
Might pick up Genesis of the Daleks as well. It's always been a favorite of mine.

Which has the better features Dalek War or Beneath the Surface? That's usually the deciding factor for me.

Its really each to their own regarding favourite Doctors.

I never rated Hartnell up to about six years ago, now he's possibly my favourite Doctor.

The Aztecs and The Romans are excellent historical adventures and in the case of The Romans really funny.

I can't say I've really seen enough to judge him honestly. I don't really have any doctor that I do not enjoy.

Recently got into the Big Finish audios and I have to say I thoroughly look forward to any Colin Baker adventure.

Honestly i can't say.

With Beneath The Surface you get three stories, therefore more features.

I'll probably go with Beneath the Surface because I'm pretty sure it had that really cool fencing scene between the Doctor and the Master.

Thanks. Those are some incredible features I'm still leaning towards Beneath the Surface but the Delgado featurette is really tempting. The Master is my favorite villain.
