I have very fond memories of the Peter Davidson years of Doctor Who, and while I cannot remember seeing either of these stories, it was very good to sit down and enjoy some classic Doctor Who stories with some classic villans.
Time-Flight sees the Doctor landing mysteriously at Heathrow Airport and then finds himself involved in trying to find a Concorde flight that has gone missing. Their search ends up taking them 140 Million years into the past and involves them with an old familar face. The special features on this contain some interesting documentaries as well as an audio commentary by some of the cast.
Arc of Infinity sees the Doctor being recalled to Galifrey after he successfully fights off an attack by a creature composed of anti-matter. This story is unique in that it features Colin Baker in the role of the Captain of the Galifreyan Guard, little did he realise that 14 months later he would become the 6th incarnation of The Doctor. Of the special features on here the Making of Documentary (which was filmed only recently) is quite interesting for a couple of reasons, firstly you get to see how many of the actors have changed since this was filmed and secondly it is hosted by Sophie Aldred, who was the Seventh Doctors companion, "Ace".
All up this was very enjoyable viewing and a great trip back into the past and some very fond memories.
