Hope it sells like crazy, while I would rather have the original missing stories, I will purchase every animation they release. Im actually surprised that an American studio hasn't requested the rights to have an ongoing animated Doctor Who...Be it Tom Baker, Tennant, or entirely new version.

So the Beeb revealed the full list of extras today.

Seems to be a fabulous set with very little I can see people taking issue with overall.
Any word on a US release date yet?

The extra harken back to the days of the Doctor Who Restoration Team, biggest thing for me is the fact that there will be the standard story features with photos and interviews with the actors, photo gallery's and so on.

Hopefully this will jump start the classic DVD range once again

Yeah, I bought Web on dvd, but I hate how it doesn't even have a production subtitles tbh. That's probably my favorite extra on the DVDs mostly. I'm a tad surprised this isn't on Blu ray though considering it can be made in HD from start to finish animated.

One would hope that BBC Worldwide if this sells well will consider a special edition of Underwater Menace and The Web of Fear and give them a chance to correct an earlier bad decision

Underwater Menace would've been fine honestly if they did a more Web of Fear style recon (having a telesnap for even the opening is stupid, especially when the Hartnell titles would need no modification). I fail to understand why the Beeb wanted such a basic recon when the RT offered one on par with Web for free according to their site.

Simple the BBC were trying to kill the range to avoid paying for animation which they have now just done. Granted with the help of BBC America

Well, shows how the times have changed. If memory serves, the VHS range ended fairly well, with the Reign of Terror set. With the DVD range going our of print here, I kinda wonder what will be next for classic who.

Well if they decide to continue the animations and make a quick buck off of the fans the cheapest and quickest thing to do would be the 3 episodes of both Underwater Menace and The Web of Fear,. Animate 3 episode's, have John Kelly and crew whip up a documentary and a photo gallery, Paul V and Richard Bignell could do their traditional bits and then they have 2 low cost special edition DVDs ready to go.

Phil Morris has been hinting a lot at Web 3 being returned soon. So I think that'll probably get a special edition soon hopefully.

There goes BBC World Wide America's slitting there own throats by blocking it from the main stream retailers in the United States and making it an exclusive.

This is exactly why I have each and every Doctor Who DVD an R2 or in some cases an R4 import. If I have to have the Blue Ray Ill get it from the UK

Its probably just an exclusive for a period of time.

If I remember correctly, they did the same thing with Underwater Menace. Mainstream retailers got it at a later date.

That is another good point I wont repeat what I just posted in another thread but this is why I now get 99% of my Doctor Who stuff direct from the UK.

Wish they would cite their source for the Region 1 exclusive info.
I've looked at the Barnes and Noble and BBCamerica sites but can't find a reference.
I wonder if you can watch the color version online at the BBCAmerica site even if you don't have a cable subscription? Still rather get the DVD though, but it sounds like it'll be months away

I'm going to wait until 6 Feb 2017 when the UK is getting it all on Blu-Ray. Chances are R1 will get the same treatment a little later.

I hope we get the Blu ray here in the States. I really don't want a Color version of this story. troughton's Era should be Blk and white like it did when it aired no color.

I think the color version sounds interesting. From the looks of it though, I think it's including it in both Black and White as well as Color in the US.

Did the TV Movie ever get a Blue Ray release in the USA. Part of me wants to pick up the U K copy but if I understood correctly it was just up scaled from SD and is not a proper HD transfer like Spearhead from Space was?
