Keep a search going - it'll turn up cheaper than that for sure. I mean, it is a nice book, but I wouldn't go so fa...

The First Doctor remembers Susan, and is happy to see her in The Five Doctors, placing that after The Dalek Invasion of Earth, which creates more problems.

Re: Doctor Who Classic Series and DVDs

Anyone grumbling about continuity re Tom’s new scene should quite frankly be pitied. Well, only Doctor Who fans could come up with something like the ridiculous "Season 6B", because Patrick Troughton had dared to age between 1969 and 1983.
