Posted by David Lambert
Early this month we reported that the @ClassicDW account on Twitter had posted word that the first classic Doctor Who DVD title of 2011 for North America would be the 4th Doctor (Tom Baker) serial Doctor Who - Story #111: Meglos. An early look at the box cover was available at the time, too, but the exact street date, cost and extras were not. However, today the title was officially announced by distributor Warner Home Video and the BBC, confirming that Meglos will indeed make it out right after new years. The exact street date is confirmed with both studios to be January 11th, and that title won't be alone, either: BBC/Warner has also today announced that the 2nd Doctor (Patrick Troughton) serial Doctor Who - Story #044: The Dominators will be available on the same date! Here are the details, with finalized package art for both shown at the bottom:

On Tigella, two opposing factions are irrevocably divided over one fundamental issue: the Dodecahedron, a mysterious artifact which provides the entire planet's energy. With the Savants and the Deons locked in a crippling stalemate, and their civilization on the brink of collapse, the Tigellan leader Zastor seeks the Doctor's help. But the Doctor and Romana have been trapped aboard the TARDIS in a time loop by Meglos, the last of the Zolpha Thurans, who will stop at nothing to steal back the awesome power of the Dodecahedron.
