Got a 80's house that needs some modern doors. Had a measure up, some are
700mm, some 760mm wide. Been looking around and there is a HUGE
difference in price, so cheapies that look ok for £15ish a pop, and then
similar looking doors for £115.
What should I be looking for when purchasing interior doors? I need a
mixture of glazed and plain.

Depends what you are trying to achieve. Cheap egg box doors will fill
the gap and keep the draft out, but look pretty lame.
Slightly posher egg box ones come in various styles of "panel" layout.
Look a bit better. Still not much copy for a quality feel or for
reducing sound transmission.
Real softwood for something to be painted that will look authentic and
do a better job of keeping sound transmission down.
Engineered wood are quite a good all round option. Real hardwood faces,
but stuck onto a MDF or similar mad made core. Hence dimensionally
stable, and unlikely to warp or crack. Much better noise isolation.
Real hardwood if you want to spend the money.
Mid priced fire doors can be quite a cost effective way of getting a
dense heavy door.
