The 14th season of DOCTOR WHO was a moment of transition as one companion, Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), left the Doctor to have another different companion- Leela (Louise Jameson)- step in. In the middle of that transition, we learn more about the time lords and see the doctor facing off against one of his greatest foes again. This season has a wide variety of stories from historical fantasy to Manchurian Candidate sci-fi to an Agatha Christie murder mystery on a sandcrawler with robots to Tom Baker dressing up like Sherlock Holmes (years before he would actually play Sherlcok). The 14th season definitely has it all and lots to offer to any fan of DOCTOR WHO. It is one of the two really great seasons that Script Editor Robert Holmes and Producer Philip Hinchcliffe (with the other season of greatness being season 13)

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Almost all of the original DVD extras like featurettes, audio commentaries, making-of documentaries, news stories, deleted scenes, isolated music scores, production text tracks, trailers, and more are among the extensive wealth of extras for this release.

BEHIND THE SOFA (in HD) has cast and crew from the new and old shows watch and comment on the stores
As for stories, DEADLY ASSASSIN has an optional 5.1 surround sound mix while THE TALONS OF WENG-CHIANG has optional updated special effects

Here are some of the other new extras you will see on the set:

DISC 1-
Audio recording of DOCTOR WHO AND THE PESCATONS

DISC 2- OUR SARAH JANE: THE LIFE OF ELISABETH SLADEN (HD) is a documentary on the life and career of the actress who played Sarah Jane Smith

DISC 7- WHOSE DOCTOR WHO REVISITED (HD)- Toby Hadoke visits the kids (now all grown up) who appeared in the WHOSE DOCTOR WHO documentary back in the 1970s in this walk down memory lane
AN AUDIENCE WITH MR. SIN- Deep Roy interview

DISC 8- IN CONVERSATION WITH PHILIP HINCHCLIFFE (HD)as Matthew Sweet talks with one of the best producers of the Fourth Doctor era about his three years producing the series back in the 1970s.

Full unedited version of an interview with Tom Baker and Philip Hinchcliffe and an episode of CALL MY BLUFF featuring Tom Baker
Blu-ray trailer for Season 14 as Louise Jameson has to deal with her robot servant

FINAL ANALYSIS: A great season for the fourth Doctor finally hits blu-ray with tons of great old and new extras. The Classic DOCTOR WHO blu-ray range continues to put out fantastic releases with the episodes looking great. I hope another classic DOCTOR WHO season is released soon despite COVID delaying the releases and making finishing the releases even more challenging.
