When you get an opportunity to watch the fifth story featuring the original Doctor (played by William Hartnell) and his companions, his granddaughter Susan Foreman (Carole Ann Ford), Barbara Wright (Jacqueline Hill), and Ian Chesterton (William Russell), you grab it with both hands and don't let go.

From official release/information:

Product Description:
On a remote island of glass surrounded by a sea of acid, there is a machine that can remove evil from the minds of an entire population - the Conscience of Marinus. Fearful of its immense power falling into the wrong hands, its sole guardian has scattered the machine's operating keys across the planet. The TARDIS crew arrives to find the island under attack by the evil Voord. Marinus' last line of defense - and its only hope - is the Conscience machine. The Doctor and his companions must undertake a deadly quest to recover the keys of Marinus.
