I read Justin Felix's DVD review of Doctor Who: The Ribos Operation at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=36702 and...

I don't have my old Key to Time set handy, so I gotta ask: Is the Baker/Tamm commentary new or a holdover from the older release?

I honestly don't know. My old Key to Time set was sacrificed to the Ebay gods in my last move a couple years ago.

There are new features on these special editions, and I made a decision to just report in detail on those features in these individual reviews rather than try to make a comparative analysis between disc versions (especially since I don't have the old discs).

There's a Baker/Tamm commentary on the older release, so it's likely the same.

You can get the full details here (http://www.purpleville.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/rtwebsite/KeyToTime.htm) and here (http://home.comcast.net/~smanfred/TheKeytoTimeSE.html).

And this is the important blurb:

"The only things that were on the 2002 edition that are not in the Special Edition are the original photo galleries (which were very minimal and have been replaced by much better ones on the special edition) and the Who’s Who text file biographies of the principal cast members, which were discontinued from all releases some time ago."

All in all, this is a substantial upgrade from the original DVDs.

The features on that old set were so slim (just commentaries; we can live without those Who's Who bits) that I doubt a comparative anything would be worth the time.

(And thanks, Tim, for those links.)
