According to several on-line retail sites, the early part of 2010 will see a bumper number of Doctor Who DVD releases. The schedule looks very crowded and it is possible one of the listed releases has been delayed until later in the year, but retailers have yet to catch up.

According to the sites January 4th will see the previously announced Peladon box set on sale, to be followed on 1st Feburary by a Myths and Legends box set. No details are available for this set, but it has long rumoured to consist of the Third Doctor story The Time Monster, and the Fourth Doctor stories Underworld and The Horns of Nimon. The Time Monster was first shown in 1972 and features Katy Manning and Roger Delgado. Underworld was shown in 1978 and features Louise Jameson and John Leeson, as well as Alan Lake, while Horns of Nimon was shown over the New Year period of 1979/1980 and features Lalla Ward and David Brierly as K9, with an appearance by Janet Ellis.

One week later, the Fourth Doctor story The Masque of Mandragora is scheduled for release on 8th February. This story was first shown in 1976 and features Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith.

The Seventh Doctor's first story, Time and the Rani, is due for release on 1st March. As well as being Sylvester McCoy's first story, this 1987 adventure features Bonnie Langford as Mel and Kate O'Mara as The Rani.

Finally, fans of the new series will see a release of final three episodes of David Tennant's reign as the Doctor when The Waters of Mars and the two Christmas Specials are released on both DVD and BluRay on 11th January.

All dates are subject to conformation by 2-entertain and are subject to change.

Thanks for the various headups.
I finished the two stories and the extras. Letts is physically diminished and has no hair at all: it's rather morbid to witness his terminal condition.
I am now listening to the audio commentary of "Frontier in Space": as entertaining as the episodes—Terrance Dicks is a fun guy.
I am impatient to listen to Prentiss Hancock on "Planet of the Daleks".

Okay, early-70s Whovians, the enthusiasm here for the Pertwee Era has impressed me enough to order ABOUT TIME 3 (revised edition). I hope to share your interest in this unseen-by-me epoch of Dr. Who. Of course, most every epoch of Dr. Who is unseen by me!

> At the end of March (not February as some online DVD sites suggest) the Myths and Legends box-set is pencilled in,
> and will include The Time Monster, The Horns of Nimon and Underworld, featuring both the 3rd and 4th Doctors.
> The box-set will be priced at £49.99.


The fool: why do they blend Pertwee with another doctor?
I hope the US edition will have the three serials in separate cases as for "Doctor Who and the Silurians" that originally belong to UK box set "Beneath the Surface".

I'm trying to see which is the joker in the boxset. Nimon or Underworld? LOL

I think it'll be the three in the boxset. I've seen the Key To Time remastered boxset and I'm not really inoressed. Yes, it's an improvement over the original R1 boxset, but it looks like it's presented in a digipack, which is not what I was hoping for. For some time now, I have been cosidering switching to the R2 releases. Perhaps now is the time to do that.

The BBFC have passed a trailer for two stories, The Space Museum and The Chase, indicating that both are being lined up for a DVD release in the next few months. The stories were part of Doctor Who's second season and were first shown between April and June 1965.

They feature William Hartnell as the first Doctor along with Jacqueline Hill as Barbara Wright, William Russell as Ian Chesterton and Maureen O'Brien as Vicki, and introduce Peter Purves as new companion Steven Taylor.

The Space Museum was written by Glyn Jones and directed by Mervyn Pinfield, who as Doctor Who's first Associate Producer was responsible for many technical innovations used on the programme.

The Chase was the final story for Ian and Barbara. It sees the Daleks return in their third story for the series, which was again written by Terry Nation. Directed by Richard Martin, it also starred Hywel Bennett. The original transmission included a clip of the Beatles performing "Ticket to Ride".

Speaking at an event sponsored by the Doctor Who Information Network.

I'm looking forward to this one. I'll have to re-read the novelization.

I have a crapload of Tom Baker era Dr. Who on order in addition to a couple of Pertwee titles and the ABOUT TIME 3 book. In no small part to your threads here, psicorpsranger. smile

Next stop is the autobiography of Barry Letts and then in 2010: "Peladon Tales" box set.
I wonder how can I get "The Time Monster" without the fourth season serials?
Let's hope they will release it in R1 without them. It means 2011.

Those bonus features sound great! I'm off to ABOUT TIME 3 to read up on this one.

I hope they include more PDF annuals in future releases; I have the '76 and '77 ones and am trying to track down all the DVDs that have them. The Time Warrior has the '74 annual.

Watched Roger Delgado in The Persuaders episode "To the Death, Baby" where he has a miniscule role as a card cheat.

Some further news about Doctor Who on MSN Video. I haven't had a chance to look at this myself, so I don't if this is true.

Video may not be available outside the United Kingdom.

The Web Planet?
That's a tough on to watch. I'm a fan of the Hartnell stories and even I find that a hard one to watch. I'd rather watch The Gunfighters. LOL
