Speaking of that Time-Life syndication package, here's the sales pamphlet the company used to interest American TV stations in Doctor Who in the '70s, courtesy of the awesome Plaid Stallions. Far from a soft sell, it's actually pretty involved, and does a good job of communicating the program's wide appeal. Plus it's got pretty decent production values, complete with a sweet Chris Achilleos illustration nipped straight from the 1977 Monster Book, apparently without accreditation.

Whole thing, complete with episode guide, is here. Feel free to imagine Howard Da Silva narrating each plot summary!
