2|Entertain limit UK DVDs to Region 2

News Dated: 21/8/2009

Doctor Who DVD manufacturer, 2|Entertain, limit UK DVD releases to Region 2 only.

2|Entertain have confirmed to DWO that all future releases will be limited to Region 2 only. Dan Hall, Commissioning Editor for the Doctor Who range, explains why:

"The distributors in Australia wanted flexibility in their release order. Therefore they have requested the trailers be removed from the Australian pressings. The upshot is Australia and the UK now have different masters, and therefore UK discs are now pressed for just Region 2."

Doctor Who DVD manufacturer, 2|Entertain, give DWO an update on the Region 4 Trailers.

2|Entertain's Dan Hall has provided DWO with an update in regards to the future of Region 4 Doctor Who Trailers included on the DVD releases:

"Apologies to buyers - I made an error. The trailers have been removed from Region 4 because they contain content that might not have been through the Censor here in time for our DVD release. We would sooner not remove them, but we made this decision to try and keep the release flow as close to UK timing as possible."

Some news concerning future Doctor Who releases. I don't know if this is true or not, but it does make for an interesting read.

2010 and Onwards The following are rumoured to be upcoming releases:

Box set pairing the linked stories The Space Museum and The Chase.
The Tenth Planet and The Ice Warriors - Dan Hall, who supervises the Doctor Who DVD range, has said in an interview with Doctor Who Online that two animated titles are in development but did not specify which titles or guarantee that the animation will be completed; however, these are by far the most likely two stories.
The Dominators - An official Coming Soon trailer was illegally uploaded to youtube and then pulled.
Peladon boxset The Curse of Peladon and The Monster of Peladon
Revenge of the Cybermen - Coming Soon trailer has been produced
The Masque of Mandragora - Coming Soon trailer has been produced
The Key to Time - (Repackaging of the sold-out limited-edition 2007 release) 2 entertain confirmed in an issue of Doctor Who Magazine that this has been briefed, but no release period was given.
Mara set - Kinda and Snakedance
Kamelion set: The King's Demons / Planet of Fire
Silver Nemesis - Coming Soon trailer has been produced

Re-releases, with improved restoration and more extras, have been rumoured but not confirmed for the following stories, originally released in 2000-2002. They were the first titles released for their respective Doctors. The first William Hartnell DVD, The Aztecs, was released later and is regarded as being of higher quality and therefore not requiring a reissue. The majority of the reissues may or may not come out in a boxed set: Zeta Minor

The Tomb of the Cybermen
Spearhead from Space
The Robots of Death - according to Louise Jameson, she and Tom Baker have recorded a new commentary
The Caves of Androzani
Vengeance on Varos
The Movie

That's no good news for me. Pertwee's "Peladon" saga never attracted me.
They should have released a Master episode from Pertwee's era instead: "Terror of the Autons"(the first Master), "Colony In Space", "The Daemons", "The Time Monster".
Only "The Dominators" interests me.

None of this has been confirmed. I guess we will have to wait until we see some kind of announcement. The only one that's seems to have any truth behind it is King's Demons/Planet of Fire listing at the bbfc.

Thomas and psicorpsranger have been enthusiastic in their love for the Pertwee Era. As someone firmly ensconced in the better-known Tom Baker era, what is it that makes the Pertwee time so special? Superior stories? Villians? I'll admit to being interested, but I just don't know if I'll like the exiled on Earth premise and abundance of UNIT stories.

But I'm interested nonetheless!

Jim,

Pertwee's era is the most adult and political, especially in the first season: season 7. Letts tries to gain a new public and to stay away from the traditional children target.
Pertwee's persona as a noble dandy.
The early 70's are very attractive in terms of socio-realism.
The updated and effective dramatical format of Pertwee's era.
The greatest nemesis of all played by Roger Delgado: "I am the Master. You will obey me."
The greatest ally: The Brigadier. That dear old chap.
The masterpiece ("Inferno") that you can watch over and over: enter the Brigade-Leader and Professor Stahlmann!

PS: Pertwee's era was my initial introduction to Doctor Who through "The Three Doctors" on BBC Prime. Meet Omega!

Over Tom Baker's early years?

Tom Baker was my introduction to Doctor Who, but when they finally got around to showing the older Jon Pertwee episodes on PBS in America, I was even more impressed. While I loved Baker's frumpy, myopic, eccentric persona (which of all the actors who played the Doctor was the most like a real scientist), I equally took to Pertwee's Doctor (who was more of a man of action), and felt the writing was generally better during the Pertwee years. Plus setting the show mostly on Earth allowed the budget to go further with no new alien planets to build for every new story!

This is good news. More Pertwee.

The two Peladon stories, The Curse of Peladon and The Monster of Peladon, will be released on DVD in January 2010.

The news was revealed by Dan Hall, commissioning editor for DVD company 2 entertain, at the Time and Again convention in London. The release replaces the King's Demons/Planet of Fire boxset which has been delayed due to clearance problems.

The Curse of Peladon was originally shown in 1972. In four parts, it stars Jon Pertwee as the Third Doctor along with Katy Manning and David Troughton.

The Monster of Peladon was Pertwee's penultimate story, shown over six parts in 1974. It features Elisabeth Sladen and Donald Gee.

Hall also indicated that a further Third Doctor story, The Time Monster, will be released in 2010 and that a "re-visitation" boxset, featuring new versions of early DVD releases, is in production.

Excellent: keep on releasing some Pertwee! I will buy them all.
I adore "The Time Monster" featuring The Master! Perfect!
