standard-definition for $79.98 or as 4 Blu-Ray discs in 1080p high-definition for $99.98. 

 

This set contains all twelve of the episodes in the first season for the Twelfth Doctor, from

Deep Breath through Death in Heaven.

PRESIDENT’S DAY BRINGS CHRISTMAS

CLASSIC DOCTOR WHO DVD COMPENDIUM

UK publisher Wonderful Books (at http://wonderfulbook.co.uk/ ) has, as of August 4th, released

an incredibly comprehensive tome called the Classic Doctor Who DVD Compendium; by Paul Smith,

which over 431 pages details the contents of every Doctor Who DVD release of the classic series that

has been released in the UK (Region 2).  Most of this, of course, applies to the contents of the North

American DVD range as well, and its well-worth picking up for a single printed (or in ebook form)

record of what was released, which extras are on which discs, who produced the extras, what film

prints were used in the restoration, what restoration was done, who’s on the commentaries, etc, etc.

And all arranged alphabetically, thoroughly indexed, with appendices about the ranges in other

countries and territories, and very easy to follow and read. 

 

Sometime in 2015?

 

The Underwater Menace starring Patrick Troughton (4 episodes, #s 1 and 4 missing)

   This story may possibly undergoing animation-completion for its two missing

   episodes.

 

This was originally stated to be coming out in 2014.  It has been recently reported that this

will see release in 2015 with animations to complete the two missing episodes.

  

There had been tentative plans to make the new up-converted versions of Series 1 to 4

on high-definition Blu-Ray available by themselves (or 2 at a time) in 2014, but these plans

have now been put on hold.

MOONBASE MASTERING ERROR - UPDATE

Due to a tight schedule, Worldwide Americas had this DVD authored in the US

instead of the UK (as they normally do).  In the process of converting this from

the PAL video system, it should’ve been authored as interlaced

video at 60 fields per second, however, the US engineers instead treated this as

if it were progressive video. This has resulted in the loss of the VidFIRE

video-look effect, and the episodes play slightly slower than they should play;

they’re about 1 minute longer than they ought to be.  They did apply a digital

pitch-correction so that the sound didn’t lower in pitch.   It’s still playable, still

looks good, (and the detail in the pictures is noticeably better than it was on the

Lost in Time release) but the video-look is absent, and it does run 4% slow.

 

I’ve been receiving many questions asking if Worldwide Americas will recall or

reissue this title given this mistake.  They apparently will not. 

 

This was a one-time error owing to the US mastering.  Upcoming DVDs, including

The Web of Fear, have been authored in the UK as normal, and so this problem

should not reoccur.

 

 

SOME BACKSTOCK TITLES GOING OUT-OF-PRINT

Some readers of this website have been asking me why certain of the older backstock

of classic series titles seem to be becoming hard to find and sometimes very high-priced.

Upon checking with BBC Worldwide Americas, I have been told that 19* titles are now

being allowed to go out-of-print and will not be restocked this year.  (They did not rule

out the possibility of them becoming available again in some fashion in the long-term

future, however.) 

 

I have recently checked with BBC Worldwide Americas about the out-of-print situation.

It is unchanged.  None of the out-of-print titles listed below have been reprinted, but also,

no further titles beyond these have been allowed to go out-of-print.

 

Here is the list of what’s gone or is going out-of-print:

Starring WILLIAM HARTNELL

The Rescue / The Romans     The Web Planet     The Time Meddler     The Gunfighters

 

Starring PATRICK TROUGHTON

The Invasion     The War Games

 

Starring JON PERTWEE

Terror of the Autons     The Time Monster      Planet of the Spiders

 

Starring TOM BAKER

None.

 

Starring PETER DAVISON

Black Orchid     Earthshock*    Time-Flight    The Awakening

Frontos              Planet of Fire

 

Starring COLIN BAKER

The Mark of the Rani       The Two Doctors

 

Starring SYLVESTER McCOY

Battlefield      Ghost Light      The Curse of Fenric

 

*Earthshock has been added to the list, which would make it 20, however, it will be

made available again in a bare-bones form later this year as the example story for

the Fifth Doctor’s era in the forthcoming release of The Doctors Revisited: 5-8

on October 8th.

 

Frequently Asked Questions: Why are we getting these re-released Special

Editions? What are the Revisitations?  Are they delaying the release of "fresh" titles?

 

Answers: 

Over the last three years there has been an ongoing series in the UK where many of the

titles that were released very early on in the DVD range have been seeing re-releases

in 3-story box sets called Revisitations.  These re-releases include restoration that has

been redone from scratch (using techniques available now that weren’t 10 years ago when

they first came out) and including the sorts of making-of featurettes that have become

standard in the rest of the range but which weren’t in common use at the start of it. 

 

Three of these sets have come out in the UK.  Similar treatment was also given to

Jon Pertwee’s debut story Spearhead from Space and released as part of a 2-story “Auton

box set alongside new-to-DVD story Terror of the Autons. A special edition of

Vengeance on Varos also came out in September, and now also The Claws

of Axos has a special edition on the docket for October in the UK and November in

North America.

 

These re-releases had been slow to come out in North America as we were behind the UK

in getting "fresh" titles out.  As of August 2012, North America has caught up with all

the re-releases the UK has had to date, and should remain in near-sync with them in the

future.

 

The name Revisitations is not being used in North America, and they are not available in

box sets.  Instead they came out as individual titles with the moniker “Special Edition”

attached to them. 

 

As they prepare to release a Special Edition, they are stopping “reprints” of the original

editions of those titles, which is why some of those older titles are now becoming very hard

to order as supplies run out. 

 

Q. The two “Dr. Who”/Dalek movies starring Peter Cushing were re-released in

high-definition on Blu-Ray in the UK.  Will they be released like this in North America

too?  If not, can we import them?

 

The rights to these two films are not controlled by the BBC or BBC Worldwide Americas.

My usual contacts therefore have no knowledge of what any international release plans

may be, and I’ve yet to hear any news on this from other sources.  As far as I know, they

are not scheduled for North American release.  I do know that the UK releases have been

encoded for Region B and thus will not play in ordinary North American Blu-Ray players.

So, importing them probably will not work for you, unless you have a region-free Blu-Ray

player.

FULL DETAILS OF THE COMPLETE MATT SMITH

YEARS – NOVEMBER 2014

This is a Blu-Ray high-definition box set compiling all of Matt Smith’s episodes of Doctor Who,

all 44 of them.*   There are 16 discs in the set. 

 

The episodes here are presented in 1080p (as opposed to 1080i on the previous sets), and with

DTS-HD 5.1 sound.  They include English subtitles for the hearing impaired.

 

The contents of Discs 1 to 4 have been previously released in The Complete Fifth Series and

those of Discs 5 to 8 have been previously released in The Complete Sixth Series.

Click these two titles to see the full details.  The one difference is that the commentary tracks were

originally “In-Vision” where you could see the participants in a box in the corner of the screen.

On this new set, they’re audio-only, and this has saved a lot of disc space such that what covered

12 discs between the two previous sets now only needs 8.  As a result, the configuration of where

the episodes and features are located are different from those original sets. 

 

The contents of Discs 9 to 12 have been previously released in The Complete Seventh Series and

here are in identical configurations to that original set (because the original set’s commentaries never

had In-Vision features in the first place).  Click that title for the full details.

 

Disc 13’s content is identical to that on the standalone release of The Day of the Doctor, including

the 3D version of the episode which will appear if you have a 3D Blu-Ray player to play it on.

 

Disc 14’s content is the same as that on the standalone release of The Time of the Doctor.

 

Disc 15’s content is the same as the Blu-Ray disc in the release of An Adventure in Space and Time.

(It does not include the bonus DVD disc from that set, which was identical to Disc 1 of the Beginning

box set and contained the first story, An Unearthly Child.)

 

Disc 16 is a new bonus disc exclusive to this set.  It contains:

- The two-part Sarah Jane Adventures story Death of the Doctor  that guest starred Matt Smith as the

  Doctor and Katy Manning as Jo Grant.  Each part is 30 minutes long.

- The 2013 Doctor Who Proms live orchestra concert. 77 minutes long.

- The Five(ish) Doctors Revisited, the 30-minute comedy gold mine written and directed by Peter Davison

   where he and the other classic series Doctors try to muscle their way into The Day of the Doctor.

- Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide.  A 2-hour special that aired on BBC3 in the UK around the time

   of the 50th anniversary, that looks at the entire history of the show.

- The Day of the Doctor: Script to Screen.  A new 15-minute featurette showing some of the initial

  table readings of the 50th anniversary special and some of it’s production.  This is totally new and

  different to the featurette already on The Day of the Doctor’s release.

 

Additionally, there were some mistakes that crept into some of the original releases of these episodes.

These have been corrected in this new set, thusly:

--- The “Next Time” trailers have been restored to the episodes in Series Five. (These had been

     removed in the previous “Complete” set.)

--- A mistake in the sound mix for Vincent and the Doctor from Series Five has been fixed and

     it now sounds as it should.

--- Similarly, the pitch-correction on Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS from Series Seven is

     now as it should be.  It had been pitched too high on the version on the “Complete Series

     Seven” release, although the one on the vanilla set was OK.

 

And it all comes packaged in a terrific book-like tome.

 

There is, however, a mistake in the text of that book-like tome.  On the page that describes the contents

of Disc 9, it claims that there is a commentary track for the episode Asylum of the Daleks.  In fact,

there isn’t one here, nor was there ever one on the previous releases.  The text is incorrect.

 

*technically, Matt Smith had two more appearances not in this set: the regeneration scene from

David Tennant to him at the end of The End of Time, and his cameo in Peter Capaldi’s first

episode, Deep Breath.

MOONBASE MASTERING ERROR

Worldwide Americas have made an apparent mastering error on this DVD.

It should’ve been authored as interlaced video at 60 fields per second, however,

it has instead been treated here as though it were 24 frame-per-second film.

This results in the loss of the VidFIRE video-look effect, and plays the episodes

slightly slower than they should play; they’re about 1 minute longer than they

ought to be.
