The first story, "The Keeper Of Trakken", tells of a living statue that poses a threat to Traken World. Its quite a good tale, introducing Nyssa to the Doctor Who Universe, but more worryingly for the Doctor it also plays host to a resurgent Master. And its he too who plays a crucial part in "Logopolis", Tom Bakers final story in the title role. Its the best story in the New Beginnings boxset, as the Doctor battles both The Master, and the potential end of the Universe when the mathematicians of Logopolis are threatened. Along the way, he also adds Tegan to the crew of the TARDIS for the first time, with the first appearance of Peter Davison as the Doctor, too.

Davisons first full story though, "Castrovalva"", is the weakest link of the set. Again it features The Master, and it follows the newly regenerated Doctor--in a very shaky state--as he heads for the supposedly peaceful retreat of the title, only to find, as youd expect, that all isnt as it seems...

And for those who missed an older posting for other Who dvds, zavvi still have the following 4 titles cheap:

Timelash - £3.99 (next cheapest £6.45 @ HMV)
Robot - £3.99 - (next cheapest £7.99 @ Play)
Inferno - £3.99 - (next cheapest £7.99 @ Play)
Survival - £3.99 - (next cheapest £7.99 @ Play)

Lastly, there's another 14 titles in their 5 for £30 promotion, which at £6.00 each is cheaper than most places.

Not sure why this is getting a cold, this is an excellent price for the first 3 Doctor Who DVDs in a set - and it's a good set too. I've had this for more than a year, plenty of extras on the discs and nicely matsered.
