Doctor Who - General North American Release Now for 'Story #040: The Enemy of the World'

Single-disc release will be available from BBC/Warner in May

Posted by David Lambert
Back in October we passed along word that the BBC had fully recovered the entire story arc of the adventure Doctor Who - Story #040: The Enemy of the World, starring Patrick Troughton in a dual role as both the 2nd Doctor (his regular role, of course) and also as the "Enemy" in question, named Salamander. We further reported in early December that during the week in question, during the lead-in to the holidays, Doctor Who - Story #040: The Enemy of the World would be released on DVD...but EXCLUSIVELY to Best Buy stores in Canada, and nowhere else. Fans - especially those in the USA - have been champing at the bit to get their hands on this highly anticipated release.

Today the folks at Warner Home Video (the BBC Entertainment distributor for North America) have advised retailers that Doctor Who - Story #040: The Enemy of the World will get a general retail release on DVD starting May 20th. This single-disc release will cost $19.98 SRP. Package art hasn't been delivered yet, so we don't know if it will be the same cover art seen on the Best Buy Canada box, or if they will change it to something more in line with the design of the rest of the classic Doctor Who DVD releases. NOR is there any word about a general release of the other Best-Buy-Canada-exclusive DVD release at the same time, which was the docudrama "An Adventure in Space and Time." Stay tuned as further developments occur. In the meantime, here's the studio description for Enemy:
    The TARDIS lands on an Australian beach in the 21st century. But this is no seaside holiday - within minutes, the Doctor, Jamie and Victoria are under attack. They soon discover that the Doctor bears a startling resemblance to Leader Salamander, a would-be dictator intent on world domination. Before long, the Doctor and his companions are plunged into a dangerous game of espionage, intrigue and deceit as they face off against the enemy of the world.
