Doctor Who - Street Date, Finalized Packaging, More for 'Story #033: The Moonbase'

The BBC formally announces a February release of this 2nd Doctor story of the second Cyber-appearance!

Posted by David Lambert
    In 2070, Earth's weather is controlled with ease from the Moon. When the TARDIS arrives at the Moonbase, the Doctor, along with his friends Polly, Ben and Jamie, is accused of starting a plague that is killing off the base's crew. It's not long, however, before the time travelers discover the true cause of the deaths - a powerful, unstoppable race that the Doctor has met before: the Cybermen.
Just the other day we mentioned that BBC Home Entertainment was getting close to an announcement for Doctor Who - Story #033: The Moonbase on DVD, and now this 2nd Doctor (Patrick Troughton) tale - the one featuring the second-ever appearance of the Cybermen! - has been formally declared by the studio! Priced at $24.98 SRP, this single-disc release will be in North American stores from February 11th. It includes extras such as Audio Commentary, the "Lunar Landing: Making the Moonbase" Featurette, and more. Note that this 4-part story is among those with missing episodes, so the missing 1st and 3rd installments of this story arc will be replaced with animated reconstructions. We fans deeply appreciate the care and work that the BBC puts into getting as much classic Doctor Who onto disc as possible! Here's the finalized package art:
