Excellent collection of stories.

Enjoyable readings of Classic Pertwee era stories. Some good additional moments added to some well known stories. Well read by the late Caroline John; Geoffrey Beevers and Katy Manning. Great value for money too.

Sadly lacking the artwork available in other sets

This is a great collection - but why none of the individual covers and booklet content that appear with, for example, the Master Collection? The write-ups about the development of the original Target novels, and Chapter headings in a very long set, were useful to have - yet are sadly lacking here.

So excellent value, but nothing really approaching an Index.
