New to DVD! Digitally remastered Doctor Who classic The Tenth Planet! The TARDIS brings the Doctor and his friends Ben and Polly to the South Pole in 1986. Their arrival coincides with the appearance of Earth's forgotten twin planet Mondas and visitors from that world: emotionless beings called Cybermen. It's up to the Doctor and his friends to stop these creatures before they convert Earth's population into similar cyber creations...but the encounter will have a devastating effect on the Doctor.
We've known it was in-the-works, and now it's been officially scheduled: BBC Home Entertainment and their North American distributor, Warner Home Video, has informed retailers that Doctor Who - Story #029: The Tenth Planet
