I agree with most of your assessments.  The Sensorites is incredibly dull.  I liked Reign of Terror a bit more than you did.  I haven't sat through the entire reconstruction of Marco Polo, on the DVD there is a 30 minute version, but I liked it well enough.  Season 2 is even better.

I wrote my review of the whole season, then found Reign of Terror, and really quickly after watching, added my thoughts to make the review 'complete'. I've sat on it since and think that was more of a reaction than a review. Really I don't mind the story, pure historical is just not usually what I come to Doctor Who for. It has a lot more going for it than the Sensorites. I think the animation left a worse taste than I initially thought. Now some time has passed I don't remember it as clearly and kind of just remember the whole, if that makes sense.

I've since watched through a chunk of season two, I may have cried in front of my wife seeing Susan leave. I had seen the "yes, I'll be back" speech before as a clip and had even skimmed the story before. Seeing it in full in proper context with the previous stories in my pocket, it hit me. But this show often does, sometimes at weird times.


...


I also watched the new, new year special. I liked it a lot! It was long enough to give time to character interactions and it was a lot of fun. And there were surprises even though the media spoiled plenty.

I dunno, I'm trying to share thoughts without spoiling anything, I watched it free on the bbc america website, don't know how long it'll be available, but curious US viewers can watch there for now. Try to watch the previous special first if you haven't and are able, it'll help.

It is such a shame most of the third and fourth seasons are gone (obviously).  There is an incredible Hartnell moment in season three in a story that is completely lost.

And while I'm at it, why haven't I posted this gem yet?

^^ Yay!  I think S24 was the first one I watched live on TV (after some home taped VHS tapes of the other Doctor's).  There are moments in 'Time and he Rani' that scared the hell out of me.  Langford is irritating but at least Ace turns up at the end.

It's pre-ordered already.

I always wondered who would win a scream off between Mel and Victoria! :)

The release date for the S24 collection is disappointing on AmazonUK:  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Doctor-Who-Collection-Season-Blu-ray/dp/B08TJYDBJV/

"Release date : 31 Dec. 2030 "

Anyone else receive Season 8 on blu ray yet? Mine came yesterday... looks gorgeous as always. Pertwee is more or less my favourite Doctor and obviously this was the season that not only introduced The Master, but companion Jo Grant too. I'll be intrigued to see how the new CSO effects look on Terror of The Autons and I can't wait to see Barry Letts' 90 min cut of The Daemons - which is basically like an official fanedit :D
