As with many Doctor Who fans, especially those in the U.S.A. rather you are a fan of the new show or the original we have not seen many of the William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton stories until they were placed on VHS and then DVD. So when one of these come out on DVD it is like a new story to us. It gives us a chance to see something that we have only read about and for us older fans who never felt that we would ever get a chance to see them. To me that is worth the cost of the DVD. You younger fans should be thankful for the times you live in. Then there is the pleasure of watching it. Afterwards there are the DVD extras which I find myself watching more often than the story. I really enjoyed the Sensorites. I disagree with Toby Hadoke who state in the DVD extras "Looking for Peter" that the Sensorites did not show the good taste of being one of the stories wiped away. I think too often we judge TV and movies like we judge history, in todays terms. To be an honest judge of anything you have to take in the context of the times of the events.This story originally aired on 6-20 to 8-1-1964. As with all of (Got to go to a birthday dinner Will finish) (I'm back. Got in much later than we had plan.) the Doctor Who at the time the production staff was short on time to get the story completed and well short on the money needed to do it right even for the 1960s. Then there was the 1960 technology. The main storylne is great and there are several underlining stories which keep you alert. But even on the DVD commentary they stated that this was a story not remember fondly by the fans. I guess a different time?The "Looking for Peter"story is nice and sad. With so manyof those who has brought us Doctor Who have gone it is nice that they are not forgotten. The part I liked the best about the DVDsare the audio commentaries. For this one as nice as it would have been to hear more from Ms. Ford and Mr. Russell I'm gald that they were able to get so many from the story in. By changing them in and out as they did we are able to hear from them all without them running over each other or having one or two dominant the time. At the end you are left feeling good as if old friends have dropped by for a chat. I wish William Hartnell had lived long enough to see to see what Doctor Who has become and how much the fans still love him and his Doctor. I pray that he, Jacqueline Hill, Peter Newman and all of the rest who has left us are at peace and know how much they are loved and missed. Oh, by the way, I was one of those who never knew that Hartnell had a wig on. Great job Ms. Markham!
