    Considering what they charged for DVD releases, the BluRays to date (at least here in Australia) have been pretty good value. Instead of around $20 - $30 per story, you pay $69 and get a whole season - 4 to 7 stories.

    If you want no frills - I think iTunes still has WHO??

    Well no, I don't want no frills. I want all the bonus stuff too

    Thing is, I don't think $70 for a season of TV (seasons of 25+ year old TV at that) is reasonable pricing in 2019. $40 definitely, $50 pushing it but I'd still go for. Anything more than that just isn't justifiable IMO.

    I don't buy much else to compare it to, but from what I have seen, WHO tends to have a LOT of extras, and over the years, there's been a LOT of work on restoring picture / sound.

    At this point, other than a few extra documentaries, I'm not sure how much work is going into the BluRays. I am guessing that they are doing very very minimal work on the actual episodes, unless there were issues originally that they can fix now. Change the bit rates etc due to the better bandwidth of BluRay... Done?

    I know you can go pick up a season of Supernatural for about $30. But - Supernatural is hardly Doctor Who.

    Freema Agyeman returns to Big Finish
    Monday, 09 September, 2019 - Reported by Marcus


    http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2019/09...ig-finish.html


    Freema Agyeman reprises her role as Martha Jones in a brand new audio adventure from Big Finish Productions.

    Torchwood: Dissected sees Agyeman paired up with Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper in Torchwood: Dissected.

    Martha Jones who was the companion of the Tenth Doctor in his second series returns to the world of Torchwood in February next year. Freema Agyeman starred in series 3 of New Doctor Who and its spin-off show, Torchwood, before going on to a huge career.

    Big Finish Productions has announced it is delighted that Freema is reprising her role in this new Torchwood story, which explores what Martha did after her adventures with the Doctor.

    Employed by UNIT, Martha is reunited with former Torchwood colleague Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) – over a dead body...

    Gwen Cooper turns up on Martha Jones’s doorstep with a dead body in tow. She needs to ask one final favour of her. And to find out why they stopped being friends.

    A lot’s happened to Torchwood since Martha left. A lot’s happened to Martha since she left Torchwood. And there’s something very odd about the dead body Gwen’s brought with her. Tonight she's going to be getting more answers than she bargained for.

    Freema Agyeman talked about returning to the character of Martha Jones.
    Aw mate, the nostalgia has been quite overwhelming. It really is like stepping into comfortable old shoes. It feels like about five minutes ago and yet so much time has passed. That’s the wonderful thing about the Whoniverse – you never feel on the outside of it. It’s great to be back.


    Director Scott Handcock added
    I first met Freema back in 2006 working on Doctor Who Confidential. I watched Martha Jones arrive and grow, and it’s a pleasure to welcome her back to the world of Torchwood. It’s something we’ve been chatting about for years, and to finally make it happen with the amazing Eve Myles (who adores her and vice versa) is a real treat!


    Writer Tim Foley told us more about uniting two of science fiction’s most courageous female leads
    Martha Jones is back! And I’ve locked her in a room with Gwen! It’s such a delight to pit these two against each other. This is quite an experimental story – you’ll be listening to an autopsy in real time, which was such a fun challenge. Luckily for me Eve and Freema spar off each other marvellously, stuck in a lab with nothing but a corpse for company...


    Torchwood: Dissected starring Freema Agyeman and Eve Myles, will be released in February 2020 priced at £7.99 on download or £9.99 on CD.

    Mission to the Unknown Reconstruction
    Wednesday, 02 October, 2019 - Reported by Marcus

    http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2019/10...struction.html


    A recreation of a long lost Doctor Who episode is to be released on the official Doctor Who YouTube channel, exactly 54 years after it was first screened in the UK.

    Mission to the Unknown was first screened on BBC One on Saturday 9th October 1965. Sometimes known as The Dalek Cutaway it was a prequel to the upcoming 12 part story The Dalek Masterplan and is the only Doctor Who episode in history in which neither The Doctor or any of his companions are featured.

    The original episode was destroyed by the BBC many years ago, but the story has been faithfully recreated by a team of students, graduates and staff of the University of Central Lancashire.

    The new production will be premiered on the Doctor Who YouTube channel at exactly 5.50pm BST on the 9th October to mark the anniversary of the original broadcast of the episode.

    The project was masterminded by Andrew Ireland, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Digital and Creative Industries at the university, and brought together a dedicated group of students from a wide range of disciplines including film and television, acting, fashion, music, design and dance to recreate the episode from the original script as authentically as possible, carefully researching and reproducing as faithfully as possible the original 1960s production techniques to re-create the classic look of the series.

    The recreation caught the imagination of several Doctor Who luminaries including Nicholas Briggs, who has provided the Dalek voices for the recreated episode, and stars including Peter Purves, who played 1960s companion Steven Taylor, and Edward de Souza, who played Marc Cory in the original episode, visiting the new set to lend their support.

    The episode will be followed by a making-of documentary short created by YouTuber Josh Snares.

    Luke Spillane, Digital Publishing Manager for Doctor Who at BBC Studios, said:
    I’m delighted that we will be bringing the story of Space Security agent Marc Cory to our 1.3 million subscribers on the Doctor Who YouTube channel as it is such a fantastic recreation, made lovingly with real craft and expertise by everyone at the University of Central Lancashire. I hope audiences around the world can imagine that it’s tea time on the 9th October 1965 as they rather excitingly watch a black and white episode of Doctor Who premiere on their television sets, mobile phones and tablets.

    Andrew Ireland, Pro-Vice Chancellor of Digital and Creative Industries at the University of Central Lancashire, said:
    It is such a loss to our cultural heritage that so many episodes of 1960s Doctor Who are missing from the BBC archives. This project presented us with an exciting opportunity to address that, to explore a new way of bringing these missing slices of TV history to life, and in the process, help students learn their craft by comparing contemporary production methods with historical approaches. The project gave so many people great experiences, and it is wonderful to see the Daleks menacing a black and white jungle once more.

    Agreed. Also very touching that they're releasing it on the date and time of its original broadcast back in 1965.

    Yeah, I'd been wondering about it as well. There was coverage in DWM a few months ago, then silence.

    Roll on next Wednesday.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    Have to admit I’m impressed by the trailer! More than I expected.

    I guess when you consider the budget of 60’s Who, they didn’t have to shoot too far.

    Doctor Who Movie Rumored To Be In Development With New Cast
    We Got This Covered has heard from our sources – the same ones who told us Robert Pattinson had beaten out Nicholas Hoult for the role of Batman, and that Disney was developing an Aladdin sequel, both of which we now know to be true – that a Doctor Who movie could be in the works. We’re filing this one as a rumor for now though since we can’t confirm that it’s definitely happening, only that there’s recently been talks of a project which would be disconnected from the TV series and have another actor as the time traveller. Interestingly, the idea is to stick with a female Doctor, just not Jodie Whittaker. And apparently, it would be a co-production between one of the major Hollywood studios and the BBC, which suggests the plan is to make it a real blockbuster.

    Just to emphasize again, though, this is being filed strictly in the rumor cabinet given that we haven’t been able to get firm confirmation that it’s happening – only that it’s been discussed. Which makes sense, seeing as there’ve been numerous failed attempts to get the TARDIS in cinemas again since those Cushing films. Back in the 1980s and 90s, for example, both Lucasfilm and Amblin were attached to produce separate takes on the franchise.

    Over on GallifreyOne there's been talk that Whitaker will be the final "original" Doctor, and a "big" movie will launch a proper reboot of the series later in the 2020's, after a few years rest.

    Of course as commented - it's probably all just fan bull****.

    As for the Fury From The Deep animation - cool! We're unlikely to ever see the episodes, so - let's animate some more, and by all accounts this story is a good one to add to the collection.
