I'm trying to watch classic episodes of Doctor Who, but 1 of them is beginning to be a pain in the behind. The episode is World's End, the fourth episode of the 2nd series in 1964.

Can anyone help me in trying to find the episode to watch?

I've already tried Youtube, but that is in parts.

I want the whole episode in full not in parts.

Some files on YouTube follow automatically on from each other. I'd recommend giving this a try on autoplay and see how you get on.

Not sure what the little extra bit is at the beginning but it's not part of the story.

Buy the DVD and help fund the show and those who worked on it

This will get you all the Tom Baker stories, if you search Watch all the Jon Pertwee stories all the Jon Pertwee stories will be at your disposal. Just search: watch all the (actor who played the doctor) stories and it will come up with his entire era

OK, call me sad if anyone wants to, but I would rather watch the classic episodes online and then get the DVD's.

Makes sense. Who'd want to buy The Web Planet?

Oh The Web Planet's not that bad, though I did buy The Twin Dilemma and Colony in Space through gritted teeth.

I've got an offical release of every episode now, every classic dvd released, VHS's of the ones not out yet, nu who series 1-4 on DVD, 2009 specials and series 5 to 7.1 on bluray and Audio CD's of all the missing ones. I am a proper ming mong.

I think the issue is more that you'd rather watch them illegally than abide by legal channels. The bit about having physical artefacts filling up your shelves is neither here nor there.

So ó does anybody know whether Netflix UK has every extant serial of Doctor Who ala Netflix US?

It's quite a contentious issue whether watching stuff on YouTube is illegal or not. If I wanted to watch footage of the recent storm in America, is that illegal too????

I think with YouTube, it's more the person who uploaded the video in the first place who's doing the wrong as well as YouTube themselves for allowing the footage to be shown.

Saying that, though, as far as Doctor Who or any other show is concerned, buying the DVD is always the best option, and before everyone jumps down my throat, yes, I do own most stories on DVD!

Only the uploader is doing anything illegal.

Besides Youtube has a Doctor Who channel which hardly seems to get updated.

British houses are very small and buying DVDs takes up too much space.

Only some episodes are on Netflix USA.

At least they're smaller than VHS...

If you know the stuff's there illegally and you take advantage, you're just as guilty as the person putting it up.

Want it? Pay for it.

Donít want it enough to pay for it? Go buy something you do want.

THAT

As someone who works in TV it infuriates me the way people casually watch stuff online and don't pay for it, and think "Oh well, it doesn't matter"

Well it DOES matter

Part of the reason the show is made now is because it makes the BBC money. If everyone took the attitude that they should watch things online then the BBC would be massively worse off. And so the show could be.

As the poster said above, it's about £6.50 on Amazon - hardly a fortune

Yes, but the person watching it does something immoral by supporting them instead of paying.

No excuse. The DVDs are available everywhere and iTunes has loads of episodes.

The most ridiculous thing I have ever read.

It's breaking copyright rules to upload anything that isn't your own material. And by watching it one is supporting that practise. If the footage is owned by the uploader or news footage, then generally it's ok to watch it because it's considered 'public domain'.

However, we're talking about an artistic creation here, which isn't news footage that could've been filmed by anyone. It's something people put hours and hours of work into, often not for much money, and for people to then take the attitude that they can consume that work for free is appalling.

I agree with all the points that you make but while sites like YouTube put stuff for free on the Internet, you'll never stop people watching it. It may not be right but that's the way it is.

They need to bring the prices down first as the classic series is very old.

Only newly released stuff is relatively pricey and then only for about 6 months - something like Dalek Invasion can be bought cheap anywhere.

On ebay a lot of these dvds can be bought for £3. That's how much Edge of Destruction cost me.

And therefore usually needs a fair bit for restoration, which costs. As do the extensive extras.

Exactly. Find-DVD.co.uk will even send you an e-mail if they drop below your target price. I use it for ones I'm not fussed about getting straight away. (Poor old Sensorites )

I'm not the monster for buying it. I bought the Daleks second hand for about the same (and got the 5 doctors limited edition case cover with it) -- in both cases the seller was given the seperate dvd and that is not their fault.

13 quid for a brand new release is good value considering the cost of restoring the episodes and the extras you get with it
