It seemed very self-indulgent, unnecessary, and rather than enhancing that era to me it felt that like it actually denigrated it.
I definitely haven't appreciated the need to establish "arcs" for the box sets. I'd also like to leave out ham-fisted attempts to attach things to future continuity. If a story is good then it doesn't need references to other stories to give it more weight or import, which is what the links in this set feel like they're trying to do. I'd also like for Companion Chronicles to be treated like Companion Chronicles and not Early Adventures. Someone on Gallifreybase mentioned that the Short Trips feel more like Companion Chronicles now than the Companion Chronicles themselves. It's very true. Even in the 2nd Doctor box set, the only one that felt like a CC was "The Story of Extinction". "The Mouthless Dead" was good, but was basically an EA with only 3 actors. Oh, and please don't go back to the first two seasons of CC's and add in all those "he said" and "she saids". That was something that easily could have been fixed in editing.
I'd really like a return to form with the CC's.
