    The Ice Warriors: missing episodes animated

    http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2013/02...ce=twitterfeed

    BBC Worldwide have finally confirmed that August's DVD release of Second Doctor adventure The Ice Warriors will indeed include animated versions of the missing episodes two and three, as well as the previously announced 'telesnap' version of the episodes that originally appeared on the 1998 VHS release.

    Unlike January's The Reign in Terror, animation for these episodes has been created by Qurios, an award-winning animation and visual effects production studio based in London and Newcastle, and who have previously worked on the range providing titles for the Who Peter features.

    DVD range producer Dan Hall said:
    We’ve been discussing the various ways Qurios could reconstruct these episodes for over three years, so it's really, really satisfying to finally see them animated. Qurios have a great track record in excellent and innovative animations.

    Doctor Who has had many different visual styles thanks to changing directors, designers and production methods. We wanted to mirror this in our choice of animation partners.
    A preview of a "work in progress" clip from the episodes has been published on YouTube, featuring the scene in episode two where the Doctor tries to convince Leader Clent that humans are better than machines:



    The DVD is currently scheduled to be released on 26th August.

    http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2013/03...313210008.html

    BBC Worldwide have confirmed the special features for the forthcoming release of Inferno (Special Edition) on DVD. The two-disc set has been provisionally scheduled for release on the 27th May for R2, and on the 5th June for R4 (a R1 release date has yet to be confirmed).

    Inferno - Special Edition
    Release date: 27 May 2013 UK (available for pre-order)

    Inferno SE - Starring Jon Pertwee as Doctor Who, with Caroline John as Liz Shaw, and featuring Nicholas Courtney as the Brigadier
    Written by Don Houghton
    Directed by Douglas Camfield and Barry Letts

    Broadcast: 9 May - 20 Jun 1970

    Still chafing at his exile to the planet Earth, the Doctor (Jon Pertwee) is called in to observe the Inferno drilling experiment of Professor Stahlman. Stahlman's search for a new form of energy goes horribly wrong when a green slime emitted from the drill site transforms any who come into contact with it into primeval monsters. Meanwhile, after experimenting with the TARDIS console, the Doctor finds himself transported sideways in time to a parallel version of the Earth, where the Brigadier is an eyepatch-wearing fascist and Stahlman's experiments threaten to destroy the world.


    Special Features:

    Commentary with actors Nicholas Courtney (The Brigadier) and John Levene (Sergeant Benton), producer Barry Letts and script editor Terrance Dicks.

    The Mind of Evil

    Following Inferno is the last Pertwee adventure to premiere on DVD - but the first time it has been seen in colour for over three and a half decades! The Mind of Evil is currently scheduled for release in the United Kingdom on 3rd June, and the BBFC have recently classified features that will accompany the story:

    Commentaries (1-3):
    00:24:41:08 DOCTOR WHO - THE MIND OF EVIL - EPISODE ONE (WITH AUDIO COMMENTARY)
    00:24:33:04 DOCTOR WHO - THE MIND OF EVIL - EPISODE TWO (WITH AUDIO COMMENTARY)
    00:24:33:13 DOCTOR WHO - THE MIND OF EVIL - EPISODE THREE (WITH AUDIO COMMENTARY)
    Commentaries (4-6):
    00:24:40:21 DOCTOR WHO - THE MIND OF EVIL - EPISODE FOUR (WITH AUDIO COMMENTARY)
    00:23:34:16 DOCTOR WHO - THE MIND OF EVIL - EPISODE FIVE (WITH AUDIO COMMENTARY)
    00:24:39:21 DOCTOR WHO - THE MIND OF EVIL - EPISODE SIX (WITH AUDIO COMMENTARY)
    00:00:23:10 THE MIND OF EVIL - RESTORATION CREDITS
    DVD Extras:
    00:22:41:23 THE MILITARY MIND - MAKING THE MIND OF EVIL
    00:07:04:23 NOW & THEN - THE LOCATIONS OF THE MIND OF EVIL
    00:04:53:21 THE MIND OF EVIL - PHOTO GALLERY
    00:23:59:13 BEHIND THE SCENES

    The Behind The Scenes has been reported to be a segment from an educational series, which in this episode focusses on twenty-four hours at BBC Television Centre and includes sets from The Mind of Evil.

    The story was premiered last weekend at the BFI (see our review for more details), and will also be shown as part of the the Birmingham Flatpack Festival on 30th March, and at the Belfast Film Festival on 18th April. Following its release, a signing for both The Mind of Evil and Inferno will take place in London on the 8th June - see the Fantom Films website for more details.

    A brief description of the colourisation process and a selection of stills by Stuart Humphryes from the first episode can be seen via his Babelcolour website.

    Coming Soon

    The BBFC have classified "Coming Soon" trailers for the forthcoming stories: Inferno (1m2s); The Mind of Evil (1m12s); Terror of the Zygons (1m9s); and The Green Death (1m22s). Though scheduled for later in the year, the trailer for The Ice Warriors appeared on the just released The Aztecs Special Edition (reviewed here).

    The Underwater Menace

    Frazer Hines mentions in the current issue of Doctor Who Magazine that whilst visiting BBC Television Centre for filming of Pointless Celebrities (to be broadcast on the 23rd March), the previous time he had visited the 'home' of the BBC was to record a commentary which he believes to have been for The Underwater Menace; last year special sound recordist Brian Hodgson had also suggested he'd recorded a commentary for the story.

    Episode Two of the story, recovered in 2011, is the only remaining episode of classic Doctor Who yet to be formally scheduled for released on DVD (episode three was released in 2004's Lost in Time DVD boxed set).

    Doctor Who: 50th Anniversary Board Game

    Whilst not strictly speaking a part of the main release range, some 100 clips from Doctor Who running to 74m28s have been passed by the BBC for the forthcoming 50th Anniversary Board Game.

    I'm holding back ordering that as well for the same reasons. If it's a box set of all the Doctor's regenerations then I don't need it as I have those already (except The Tenth Planet of course).

    Ditto. I'll be mad as hell though if this box set turns out to be the only way to get The Tenth Planet though. The idea of having to re-buy all the other regeneration stories just so I can own this legendary story is not an appealing thought...but I very much doubt it will go like that.

    That would be terrible. It was bad enough having to buy Spearhead From Space again in order to get my hands on Terror of the Autons, but having to to buy all the regenerations again in order to have The Tenth Planet will make me very angry indeed. Surely they can't do that... can they?

    Now if they have secretly got The Power of the Daleks and bundle that with The Tenth Planet I think I will cartwheel all down the street.

    Well I didn't mind having to re-buy Spearhead from Space again because, being as significant a story as it is, it was packaged with the special features it should have had in the first release. Plus they managed to clear the right issues and restore the Fleetwood Mac song "Oh Well - Part One" back in to the story too so it is now exactly as it was when first broadcast back in 1970.

    But back to The Tenth Planet...yes, if they packaged it with The Power of the Daleks audio and the telesnaps then I'll be over the moon.

    OK I'm annoyed. The Regenerations DVD

    http://merchandise.thedoctorwhosite....eneration-dvd/

    Release Date TBC

    This appears to be standard releases in a cardboard folding sleeve and aimed at the casual buyer as an introduction to Doctor Who DVD’s and each Doctor in this 50th Year.

    We do not think this is aimed at core DVD collectors.

    BBC Worldwide have said that this DVD Contains…

    The Tenth Planet
    The War Games
    Planet of the Spiders
    Logopolis
    The Caves of Androzani
    Time and The Rani
    The Movie
    Bad Wolf / Parting of the Ways
    The End of Time
    The Tenth Planet had better be released on it's own. And it had better be released at the same time as this DVD.

    DVD Update: Cybermen 'invade' Autumn
    Thursday, 02 May, 2013 - Reported by Chuck Foster


    The latest issue of Doctor Who Magazine (out today) has confirmed that The Moonbase will indeed have its own DVD release on the 21st October. Originally released as part of Lost in Time in 2004, the existing episodes two and four will be accompanied by animated versions of episodes one and three created by Planet 55 Studios, who provided the animated episodes for The Reign of Terror and the forthcoming The Tenth Planet. No other details have been released at present, though a commentary for the story includes special sound composer Brian Hodgson.

    After the announcement last week of its inclusion in Doctor Who: Regeneration, the individual release of The Tenth Planet itself has now been announced for 18th November. Unlike the June collection, this release will feature the usual range of extras that accompany the Doctor Who releases as well as the the new Planet 55 Studios animated episode four (one extra being the original reconstruction of episode four made for its VHS release in 2000).

    With these announcements, the release schedule for the year in the United Kingdom currently looks like this:

    6th May The Visitation (Special Edition)

    20th May Series 7 Part 2 (DVD/Blu-ray)

    27th May Inferno (Special Edition)

    27th May Dr Who and the Daleks/Daleks' Invasion Earth: 2150AD (DVD/Blu-ray) (Aaru movies, released by Studio Canal)

    3rd June The Mind of Evil

    24th June Doctor Who: Regeneration (coffee-table book/DVD set of The Tenth Planet, The War Games, Planet of the Spiders, Logopolis, The Caves of Androzani, Time and the Rani, Doctor Who: The Movie, Bad Wolf/The Parting of the Ways, and The End of Time)

    8th July The Monster Collection (individual themed DVDs: Cybermen, Davros, Silurians, Sontarans, The Daleks and The Master)

    The Daemons' White Witch To Return On DVD

    http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2013/05...513062117.html

    A drama production featuring Damaris Hayman reprising her role as white witch Olive Hawthorne from Third Doctor story The Daemons is to be released on DVD later this year.

    White Witch of Devil's End is a Reeltime Pictures spin-off and, according to producer Keith Barnfather, despite nearing the age of 84 Hayman jumped at the chance of playing the role again.

    Hayman herself said:
    I shall retire, I think, in my coffin! Miss Hawthorne was my all-time favourite role and I was enchanted by the thought of being her again for a little while. After a lot of working together consulting over the scripts I'd subsequently never enjoyed filming more, and I can't wait now to see the final result.
    Barnfather commented:
    I was amazed and delighted that, as an octogenarian, Damaris was prepared to take this on. We had recently recorded an interview with her for our Myth Makers series profiling actors who had appeared in Doctor Who and I already knew she still had a hunger to act. But I really didn't expect her to be so keen.
    Because of her age, the actress knew she had to pace herself, so director Anastasia Stylianou decided to film the drama in a "talking head" style, adding dramatic cutaway material to bring the words to life.

    Stylianou said:
    I knew it would be a challenge. We needed to film a 50-minute drama at least, so I decided to make an asset out of a limitation.
    Primary filming has already taken place at a cottage near Hayman's home, with the crew collecting and returning her each day. Once back home each evening, she was able to recover and study the next day's script.

    Barnfather said:
    We used autocue to help Damaris. It was an impossible task for any actor to learn so much dialogue. She was a true professional and took to it instantly.
    A release date of Thursday 31st October - Halloween - is planned, and Stylianou added:
    It's just getting all the dramatic cutaway material "in the can" that is crucial. The drama is really an anthology – a set of connecting stories about Olive's life told, as it were, in her own words.
    Barnfather, who contacted pal David J Howe at Telos Publishing when considering who should write the stories, stated:
    I thought it would be fantastic to ask individual writers knowledgeable in the occult and magic to write each story and David, through Telos, knew so many of the best young talent in the country.
    Howe and his partner Sam Stone contacted several authors they felt would be sympathetic to the material and got them all on board for the project. Stone, who is an award-winning author, said:
    I took on the task of outlining the whole story and then asked the writers to come up with ideas which fitted that framework. We needed to tell stories at different points in Olive Hawthorne's life, and the writers rose to the challenge and delivered scripts which exceeded all my expectations. I then worked with them to refine the scripts into the completed screenplay.
    As well as Howe and Stone, the writers involved in the project are Raven Dane, Debbie Bennett, Jan Edwards, and Suzanne J Barbieri, with a final script polish being applied by Big Finish writer Matt Fitton.

    The DVD, which will be region-free, is available to pre-order here http://www.galaxy4.co.uk/product.tht...56&vts=geBkAgQ. Extras are yet to be finalised but will include a "Making Of . . . " feature as well as interviews with the authors.

    The Ice Warriors: original trailer to be included on DVD

    http://www.doctorwhonews.net/2013/05...513144508.html

    The DVD release of The Ice Warriors is include the the original in-character trailer, with brand new animation. Producer Chris Chapman explained on Twitter:
    So... the plan is at the moment that the Ice Warriors DVD will include the original 1967 in-character trailer- animated back into existence! We weren't going to do this - didn't think we'd have time, but Chris Chatterton and his team have pulled out all the animated stops! Worth saying though that the Ice Warriors trailer audio is beyond restoration - it's really bad. So we're including subtitles to help!
    As mentioned, the audio quality of the trailer utilised for the project is in very bad quality, and Chris has asked if anybody owns a copy that they believe is of a good standard that could be used on the DVD to please contact him asap.

    The original trailer was broadcast after the final episode of The Abominable Snowmen on 4th November 1967, and featured Peter Barkworth as Clent and Peter Sallis as Penley introducing the situation facing Brittanicus Base.

    The BBFC have recently classified various aspects of the DVD release, including the existing four episodes and their commentaries, plus special features (which confirms their running times):

    00:10:03:06 BLUE PETER (DOCTOR WHO - THE ICE WARRIORS -
    DVD EXTRAS - BLUE PETER DESIGN-A-MONSTER)
    00:03:51:24 THE ICE WARRIORS - PHOTO GALLERY (DVD EXTRA)
    00:13:46:08 DOCTOR WHO STORIES - FRAZER HINES (DVD EXTRA)
    00:19:17:23 (DOCTOR WHO - THE ICE WARRIORS - DVD EXTRAS - VHS LINKS)
    00:24:28:18 COLD FUSION - MAKING THE ICE WARRIORS (DVD EXTRA)

    The newly animated version of The Tenth Planet: Episode 4 has also been passed (running time 24m 35s), as has the trailer for Scream of the Shalka.
