Tomb Of the Cybermen Again?
While I know that the Tomb of the Cybermen is by far the 2nd Doctor's most beloved serial, it hardly needs to be featured in both the 2nd Doctor introductory pack AND the best of the Second Doctor. There are other serials that could recieve a place instead. "The War Games" is a 10 episode epic. The Invasion is an eight episode epic revisiting the Brigadier. (Apple apparently has no qualms about using serials completed with animated reconstructions or else they wouldn't have "The Ice Warriors").
I only bring this up because it's actually cheaper to buy both packs instead of buying "The Bets of Patrick Troughton", with the 2nd Doctor special and the individual episodes of "The Mind Robber". (6 * 1.99 > 10.99) Essentially, in order to get the best deal, you have to buy a serial twice. What?
And if Tomb of the Cybermen is so popular in terms of serials, make it its own seperate serial. (like "The Enemy Of The World" and "The Web Of Fear" and "The Krotons".).
