Thanks to donations from members I've been able to move Planet Mondas to a faster server. But I'm still working on further improvements. Ad Revenue covers the server fees, but not my time, so if you like you can buy me a coffee, which will help fuel me! Thanks in advance! Mat Sadler (matjkd)

The original DVD release that appeared on Lost in Time set, had the episodes been cleaned up or vidfired?

If not, will they have the treatment for this release?

God knows, the fact they’re reanimating them for the colour obsessed would suggest they don’t give a toss, but you never know. They may be trying to appeal to everyone.

From the Doctor Who Restoration Team website:

'Lost in Time' brings together eighteen episodes in total, sixteen of which are from a mixture of original 16mm film recording negative and prints, with the remaining two from 35mm film recording negatives. With the exception of 'The Lion', the badly damaged first episode of 'The Crusade' which was loaned back to the BBC for copying onto video in 1999, all of the transfers are brand-new Spirit telecine transfers from the best surviving materials, which have been meticulously cleaned up and VidFIRE processed. However, 'The Lion' has undergone some additional cleanup to further reduce the severity of the large scratch that runs most of the way through the episode.

Actually since this is getting a Blu-ray release I’m wondering if they’ve been spruced up even more for that format?

As a precursor to its eventual appearance in a box set.

Can’t see it making any difference but it should give us an idea how the b&w episodes are going to look in that format.

I'm sure they would use the vidfired versions on this set, the works already been done, they may even improve on those, since technology has improved tremendously since the Lost In Time release. Remember how the special edition of EOTW had slight picture improvement over the first release? Not too long now to wait, i'm getting rather impatient to be honest, I need to calm down and relax a bit. :D

Indeed. One day they’ll be touching The Invasion level quality for these cartoons and we will all be saying “Phil who?”

Cover art states 3 disc set.

Seems a lot of discs for effectively 1 story and a making off.

A colour version, a black and white version and a 4:33 version in either black and white with the two remaining episodes and the making of bit, or I might just be making this up
