    Not in any region afaik. I believe a commentary track has been recorded, so it's in the works. But no projected release yet.

    I like to look at the Classic DVDs online, but I don't own any of "Classic" Who yet. Although I am contemplating getting the movie with the 8th to start off.

    I think I might not get A Christmas Carol when it is released, I'm wondering if it will be part of the "complete sixth series" set that is inevitable to be released months and months and months from now.

    That seems very likely to me; it's what they've done in the past.

    My guess is that that has to do with Netflix's licensing rather than any release issues, since The Dominators is already on shelves.

    I just found out that for the Mara Tales DVD release (Kinda & Snakedance), the big goofy snake puppet is going to be replaced by a CGI model.


    I wasn't aware that George Lucas had become involved with Doctor Who

    Damn. I liked the big goofy puppet when I saw it on VHS for the first time. Really hoping it would have been kept in for the DVD release.

    The Reign of Terror, Vengeance on Varos added to DVD release schedule
    Friday, March 04, 2011 - Posted by Chuck Foster


    Two new titles have been announced by 2|Entertain for the Doctor Who DVD schedule.

    This afternoon saw the company reveal that First Doctor story The Reign of Terror would be released sometime next year. This will be the first incomplete story to be released on DVD since The Invasion back in 2006, with episodes four and five still missing from the BBC Archive. It is currently unclear whether this story would receive the same CGI animation reconstruction for the missing episodes like the Troughton tale, a telesnap reconstruction like the VHS release of The Tenth Planet back in 2000, or some other form, with the company merely stating via their @ClassicDW Twitter feed that:
    .. REIGN OF TERROR! To be released as complete as can realistically be achieved. Likely late 2012.

    During this evening DrWho Online revealed that the other release to the schedule is the Sixth Doctor adventure Vengeance on Varos, which forms part of the Revisitations strand of previous DVDs receiving a makeover and new lease of life. The announcement of the story follows on from 2|Entertain canvassing for opinion on a potential release when DVD schedules were published by Doctor Who Magazine in January.

    Looks like Series 32/6 will be getting first the horrid split-season releases, and then later on a complete season release.

    Also, Amazon is showing a July 11 release date for REGION 2 Season 6.0:

    The BBC release "moderately priced" Dr. Who? Not a chance. I don't know about the US, but the full price for the Dr. Who seasons is probably the most expensive box sets (good thing for sales). £25 for 7 episodes is a bit much, especially you can get Stargate box sets for about £30 (less during sales) with 20 episodes.

    Darn those half-season sets! Darn those long hiatus periods! But at least we know there will be a complete series set, its going to be quite a wait.

    Doctor Who and Torchwood is pretty expensive in the US, especially for a TV show. I could buy a PS3 instead of two or three seasons! But I choose Who over PS3.
