“Girls, Girls, Girls – The 1970s” features two of the three female companions of The Pertwee Era (Katy Manning and Caroline John who played Liz Shaw during Pertwee’s first season) and one who would enter the show in the middle-half of Tom Baker’s run as The Doctor (Louise Jameson who played Leela). Katy Manning dominates here as she does in the audio commentary.
“Was Doctor Who Rubbish?” the most useless feature of this two-disc set. Fourteen minutes watching random fans of the show defend against the criticism against the original series doesn’t come off as interesting on film as it does on paper (or if you are on the Internet, a fan forum or a blog post). This should have been re-done with a central focus on one of the more low quality stories (The Sensorites would be a nice start).
As if carry-overs from a previous release of this story on DVD, you wind up with a clip from a 1970s episode of Blue Peter introducing The Whomobile, a staple of the Jon Pertwee era and introduced by Pertwee himself. Another clip from a show called “Pebble Mill At One” features an interview with Pat Troughton and Bernard Wilkie, who did visual effects for the original series. You also get a trailer promo for the 40th anniversary of the series, a promo of a 1981 repeat season of Doctor Who, a photo gallery and a BBC1 trailer of the first episode of "The Three Doctors."
"The Three Doctors," while not one of the best of Doctor Who’s history, is a nice entry point for someone only casually familiar with the series. Be warned that there is lots of running, Studio 54 designing and loads of shouting over the course of its four parts. Hardcore fans who just wanna watch anything Doctor Who would be advised to watch this with a highly alcoholic beverage.
