What's your favourite Tom DVD release taking into account the story itself, the extras, commentary etc etc?

I think it would have to be Logopolis (which was released with Keeper of Traken & Castrovalva) as it's one of my favourite stories, and the documentary "A New Body At Last" is one of the best DVD documentaries yet done, with lots of interview with Tom talking very candidly about the end of his era and why he decided to leave. He is also on the commentary for Logopolis and I love the end of the documentary where it finishes with Tom saying (after the question what became of Tom Baker): "Well, you could say I'm still the Doctor...and you'd be right!". An absolutely fascinating documentary that I recommend anyone who hasn't seen it to watch. Yes, Logopolis would be my choice for favourite Tom DVD.

'Genesis' is my favourite package, too, although I don't own them all.

Logopolis, for me, has the most in-depth documentary on the Tom Baker years, along with some reat interview clips from around the time Tom left the series.
The story itself has a lot going for it as a DvD, and for once, there are no NuWho ads included!
I hate how most of the ones I've seen have those NuWho title ads included. It's a bit intrusive.
