Picked them both up today, love that on The Faceless Ones you can either watch it as an entirely animated adventure or with the two existing episodes that have been recovered. Love being able to watch a classic adventure for the first time.
I don't like how they took artistic/creative liberties on some elements of the animation, like on The Macra Terror and Fury from The Deep. As a purist, I like the animations to be as authentic to the source material as possible.

Btw have you gotten the season 8 blu ray collection yet ? To sum up, it is stunning, especially the upgrading of Terror of the Autons and The Mind of Evil, which I know consider to be a top ten all time classic, and the second best Pertwee, after Inferno.

The bonus features are amazing and really enjoyable too.

The Terrance Dicks tribute hosted by Frank Skinner had me in tears. I think in all honesty, it is the best classic series box set yet, your wife (whom I believe you said is a Pertwee fan) will love it

Not sure I can quite reconcile these two points haha.

I quite like the animation..

I loved Clara, what was wrong with her?
The character was just a lying adrenaline junkie that used people and thought her actions were justified

Dragging children into the tardis like it's the fun fair , blackmailing both men in her life

Danny should have kicked her to the curb and the Doctor should have shoved her into the volcano

No other doctor would have put up with her

Jenna Coleman did a good job but clara was a campaigner

Noel Clarke and John Barrowman are a disgrace who should never ever appear on Who again (or any other media for that matter)

I heard rumours about JB's perverted and sleazy behaviour years ago (which apparently was a big decision why Eccleston left after one season) but am truly disappointed and pissed off with Clarke and his toxic behaviour.

This scandal has really left a very bad taint on the RTD era as a whole (I believe Moffat knew about what kind of sex pest Barrowman was, which is why he never brought him back during his tenure as show runner)

' Mickey ' hasn't been on Dr Who in over 10 years.

My watching of early seasons won't be affected by this at all

I mean I never rated him anyway

Barrowman - I would like more info - but if he never came back it wouldn't change my view of Captain Jack

You're astonished quite regularly. I read about Clarke but saw no news of Barrowman. As to your supposition about why Eccleston left or the tarnishing of eras, you're over the top attitude is boring yet again.

The Micky character was meh and haven't watched any of the stuff he's being lauded for since, no loss if he's black listed. JB is great though. Always like Captain Jack episodes (or Malcolm Merlin turning up in the Arrowverse). JB is also great value at conventions.
