The Sweeney (S2, Ep 7 "Hit And Run")

I mention this one here because Patrick Troughton is the main tearaway here, with Micheal Sheard in a supporting role ... as a teacher!!
Pat's a right nasty bleeder in this an' all ... and his sheepskin jacket is de riguer for the period

No further info at the moment, but I have had the following message from one of my FB chums:

"Having a not very good Monday, and then get lovely news about an upcoming Doctor Who release

Yeah it's odd that DWM arrived on a Monday morning. It's usually Thursday.

Season 19 has a couple of really good stories in Earthshock and The Visitation and possibly Kinda depending on my mood but the rest are all merely okay except for Timeflight which is pretty poor.

If they wanted a fifth Doctor season i would have gone for season 21.

The DVD release in the 'Mara Tales' boxset comes with the option of either watching the story with the original effects, or watching the story with new CGI effects

Yeah not the best Davidson season but it has some okay stories, I should probably give more love to Davidsons era as he was my first Doctor. I wonder if the plan is to put out every Doctors first season before returning to their next one, are Colin and Sylvester next?

This is the season that helped me make up my mind on buying the blu-ray releases.

The 5th Doctor has always been my favourite with only one story (Snakedance) that I didn't like. Having already got every Doctor Who dvd release I knew I would be unable to resist buying his seasons on blu-ray especially with the added documentaries.

As a huge fan 80s DW, I hope they continue the range with a few more seasons from this time period as it's these that I watch more than anything else.
