Doctor Who - DVD for the Cybermen's First Episode, and the 1st Doctor's Last: 'Story #029: The Tenth Planet'


Multi-DVD set will materialize in stores late this year

    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 will arrive on DVD November 19th. Featuring digitally remastered picture and sound quality, this 4-part story - the first one with the Cyberman and the final one starring William Hartnell as the 1st Doctor - is missing the fourth and last episode in the story arc. For this DVD release, the BBC is replacing the lost installment with an animated reconstruction. You'll also get this bonus material:
  • Audio Commentary
  • Frozen Out
  • Episode 4 VHS Reconstruction
  • Photo Gallery
  • William Hartnell Interview
  • Doctor Who Stories - Anneke Wills
  • The Golden Age
  • Boys! Boys! Boys!
  • Companion Piece
  • Blue Peter
  • PDF materials: Radio Times Listings
  • Production Note Subtitles
Warner Home Video's information shows this to be 93 minutes for the featured episode, and a 3-DVD set overall, costing $34.98 SRP. You can pre-order it from Amazon right away, though, and at a discount! Package art isn't available yet, but stay tuned.
