  • Great Beginning For Newcomers

    By DW Watcher
    Personally, this episode is my opening to the original series, and it didn't disappoint. The story is interesting, the acting is well done, and it was awesome for me to see Tom Baker in an episode for the first time. All in all, great episode, and continue pumping these out iTunes.
  • Who!

    By fethan
    This was one of my favorite episodes as a child. Upon re-watching it, I was surprised at the fact that, as a kid, I did not notice the extensive use of bubble wrap in this episode. Still great stuff. Bring on more of the classic stuff. I, for one, will buy it.
  • A Great Episode For Newcomers to Doctor Who

    By rwpreston135
    This is definitely one of the more interesting stories from the series, especially if you crave lots of cheesy sci-fi goodness and don't mind special effects that are a bit dated. All in all, this is an excellent story for those that are new to Who.
  • The BEST!!!!

    By Jooma
    Hands down folks, THE absolute best Doctor Who episode of all time!!! Sara Jane, The Doctor, Harry, Vira, Rogan all great. The Wirrn, reallly buggy aliens. This was the first DW episode i watched. Saw it with my grandfather 25 years ago on PBS as most of us american DW fans. Great price but could be a little cheaper.

    Nice try, but it's RomanadvoratrElundar. Anyway, yes it'd be great if "more popular" episodes were on here, but they're on DVD already, and I think it's amazing that they're on here at all. Bring on the Hartnells!
  • Finally!

  • MORE of the FOURTH Doctor PLEASE

    By Romanaveratralundar
    Most Americans who came of age in the 1980s were introduced to Dr Who by watching episodes of the FOURTH Doctor on PBS, played by Tom Baker. He remains a fan favorite 20+ years later. How about the Key to Time story arc?
  • One of the best episodes from (IMHO) the best season of the classic series

    By D0C70RWH0
    "The Ark In Space" is the second story in Tom Baker's inaugural season as The Doctor and, bubble-wrap-as-special-effect aside, holds up remarkably well over 30 years later. Yes, you get all of the cheese-factor from aspects of the production design that classic Who is known for, but you also get really strong writing (by the amazing Robert Holmes) and characterization (particularly Baker himself; watch his soliloquy about the human race in Episode 1, and see if you can ID the link between it and the David Tennant episode "Utopia" from NuWho series three). I can't recommend this one highly enough. Keep your eyes open for the rest of this season: "Robot," "The Sontaran Experiment," "Genesis of the Daleks" and "Revenge of the Cybermen." All are worthwhile viewing.
  • Fantastic

    This is what Doctor Who is all about. Good plot and silly monsters. Must see
