In City of Death and Robot ($19.98 each), both from the mid-'70s, Tom Baker is a rather rumpled, disheveled Dr. Who, with a wild head of curly hair and a Harpo Marx face. Baker is droll and eminently witty as he solves his crimes. For example, when he's roughed up by a gun-carrying butler, he exclaims, "I say, what a wonderful butler. He's so violent!"

"City of Death" was the better of the two episodes (there are 52 in all available to rabid Who-lovers), with Dr. Who and his lovely assistant, Romana, on holiday in Paris, where an evil Count is trying to steal the Mona Lisa from the Louvre. Why? Because the Count is really a Jagaroth, a spooky alien whose cyclops head looks like it's covered in vines. As each half-hour episode unfolds, the story gets better, as Dr. Who visits Leonardo da Vinci's studio and then the very primordial ooze from which human life sprang 400 million years ago. Way to go, Doc!
