Movie synopsis
This collection includes "An Unearthly Child," the premiere episode of the Doctor Who adventure series. Here Doctor Who (William Hartnell) leads his young granddaughter and a pair of her teachers on a prehistoric quest for fire. Then, Doctor Who grapples with the Daleks for the first time in "The Daleks," an extended collection of seven episodes from the popular BBC series. Finally, in "The Edge of Destruction," the Tardis lands on a seemingly dead world and the Doctor becomes curious. While exploring the planet's empty city, Who and crew discover--to their horror--a deadly amount of radiation in the air, a mutant race of peaceable Thais, and the sinister Daleks who control the world for their own cruel advantage.Taking place entirely inside the Tardis, "The Edge of Destruction" features original Doctor William Hartnell in a terrifying story of sabotage. When the crew awaken after an explosion, they discover that the ship is barely running, and no on is sure what has happened.

Doctor Who - The Beginning Collection

Review For: Doctor Who - The Beginning Collection (DVD, 2006, 3-Disc Set)

Though I was a youngster when the original Dr Who aired, weaned on the likes of Ultra-Man and Godzilla, I only recently discovered the Dr, with my 10 yr old son and 7 yr old daughter, when the modern first series aired Sun nights on PBS. Much to our dismay, PBS did not carry it very long - just enough to whet our appetites. My curiosity of where and how it all started got me wondering if a DVD might not exist. And sure enough, a few searches later I found that it did indeed. This was exactly what I was looking for - the original series in all of its black and white and low-tech-special-effects glory. This is a perfect compilation for anyone who is curious about the roots of Dr Who, and especially if you have an appreciation for the old 60s style drama and sci-fi. These early episodes are fun, and the time warp experienced in watching them would make the Dr proud. My kids like them as much as I do. Recommended!

Doctor Who-The Beginning

Review For: Doctor Who - The Beginning Collection (DVD, 2006, 3-Disc Set)

This shows you Doctor Who at the beginning. How the first Earth companions came to the ship, the first meeting with the Daleks, and the intercommunication and the "gruffness" of the First Doctor.

William Hartnell is the first Doctor, and does the job beautifully. He is alternatively gruff and grandfatherly, verbally stumbling over his words, and mentally besting all-comers.

The regular cast is rounded out by William Russell, Jacquelinh Hill, and Carole Ann Ford.

These are the stories that started the 40+ year phenom of Doctor Who. I recommend this to anyone who not only likes the new series, but anyone who enjoy well written stories.

A Necessity for Any Doctor Who fan, ClassicWho or NewWho

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Doctor Who - The Beginning Collection (DVD, 2006, 3-Disc Set)

While not the best episodes of Doctor Who's premiere season, The Beginning Collection reveals the humble beginnings in which the BBC's world famous show began. "The Daleks" gives us our first sight of the Doctor's legendary enemy, resonating with recent episodes like "Doomsday" and "Dalek." "The Edge of Destruction" gives us our first hint that the TARDIS may be more than just a machine, a real pleasure for those of us that know she's Sexy and likes to bite. Bonus features include interviews with the original cast, crew, and producers and finally reveal how the TARDIS first got its iconic noise (something so simple!), why the Daleks are shaped as they are, and how budget issues nearly killed the show in its first season. This collection got me hooked on the Classic series, and I've now watched all of William Hartnell's first season. It's definitely worth the money just to be able to see this sci-fi phenomenon in its infant stages.

A must-have DVD set for classic Doctor Who fans.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Doctor Who - The Beginning Collection (DVD, 2006, 3-Disc Set)

This is virtually a must-have set for any Doctor Who fan. It contains the first three episodes in their entirety. As with all the Doctor Who DVDs, it's chock full of special features. Now, I should note, this is clearly a British TV show filmed on a tight money and time budget from the early 60's. There are points where the special effects aren't very special and the acting is less than stellar -- but it is great fun to see William Hartnell create the role of the Doctor for the first time.

I enjoyed viewing these mythical episodes.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Doctor Who - The Beginning Collection (DVD, 2006, 3-Disc Set)

I bought this product because it is about Doctor Who, a TV series that I love. And, to add the fun to it, it is the 3 first episodes ever broadcast in 1963. "An Unearthly Child", "The Daleks" and "The Edge of Destruction". I am so pleased to finally own these three mythical episodes of the longest running science-fiction TV series in the world. William Hartnell is such a good actor. But, beware, this is 1963 so it is more of a filmed drama compared to today where action is the main part of the episodes. Here, dialogue is the main part of the episodes.
