Looks like a good mix. I really want to see The Gunfighters to see if it lives up to reputation.

I do wish they wouldnt release them in box sets though. Especially when they are unrelated. The 'Earth' box set is stretching it a bit. Its even worse when they release something new with something previously released. They havent done it this time as far as I can see though

They have with Spearhead From Space/Terror of the Autons.  I really want Terror, but I already have Spearhead.

Planet of the Spiders and Ambassadors of Death/The Sun Makers get enthusiastic thumbs-ups from me.

Peri-Peri, this is a brilliant summary of all the releases. The only problem I have with it, is the amount of cash its going to cost me a small fortune;

The Planet of the Spiders - Must Have
SFS/Terror of the Autons - Must Have (for Terror of the Autons - in my top 5 all timers)
Frontios - Must Have (Christopher H. Bidmead - say no more)
Awakening/Gunfighters - I might be able to save money here..or at least not get it the second it is released; not brilliant stories (this screams b'day present from Mam)
Revisitions 3 - Oh dear, a box set I'm gonna be buying just for the extras. 2Entertain might as well just have my sort code, security code and mothers maiden name!!!
Solar System Box Set - Must have
Day of the Daleks - Must have x 10000
Paradise Towers - Wait till it gets reduced to £6.97 on a certain interweb site rhyming with 'Famazon'

I reckon that all adds up to a cool £136.97 - almost a weeks food shopping at Waitrose!!!

I do quite like The Awakening, but not enough to pay more than bargain-bin price for essentially two decent episodes.

I forgot to mention Day of the Daleks.  Not one of my favourite Dalek stories, but still essential.

Someone on Ebay is claiming to have every episode ever made (including the lost ones) on DVD and only wants £250 for them. This is a massive scam, right? I thought people weren't allowed to advertise stuff like that on Ebay?

They might have the reconstructions of the lost episodes, but that's not quite the same thing.  In any case, the reconstruction are free to download - I'm not sure, but I suspect part of the terms of them being alowed to use the soundtracks is that no-one makes money out of it.

I'd pay it no attention Exterminate. There is one every couple of years promising to have the lost episodes but they never come to anything and I can tell you now that if they did, it would be at least £250 per episode, not £250 for the whole lot. Its probably some very clever wording by someone selling soundtracks and recons Smiley

Exactly. If the BBC didnt get on it first, then thousands of fans would have tried for sure.

If they had all the lost episodes, they could sell them to the BBC for vastly more than that.

Apologies if this has been said elsewhere but The Solar System box set is no more. Since announcing it's release, The Ambassadors of Death is (according to Mark Ayres on Twitter) proving to be a much more extensive restore than first anticipated. So the plan is to release The Sunmakers this year and the Ambassadors has been bumped to next year sometime.
