I think he was talking about the Torchwood: Series 1 set. Not The Key to Time.

I'm curious what the Torchwood episodes will be like in the US. They are going to have to cut so much lewd content it's not going to be funny. Especially that one scene with the "cool" guy in bed. Isn't that bad, I can't even identify all of the characters.

So similar news, but not exactly dvd...it looks like you can watch all of the Series 1 episodes on Netflixs' "Watch Now" feature.

I just started watching Doctor who with the 9th Doctor on the sci-fi channel (never seen a single episode until then), and decided to start watching as much as I could from the beginning. I stopped when I got to the 4th Doctor and saw the huge gap which is the Key to Time story arc, so I guess I'll just have to stop watching when I get there until it is released.

If you thinks thats a huge gap, you should have stopped watching with the Troughton era....tons of stories are missing and making them incomplete.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/i...n=283926&s=dvd (possible spoiler if you haven't seen full series yet)

Btw, I added some comments on S3 as a whole in the S3 thread over in TV talk.

Nope, its said that the release will have both versions. One side of the cover will have Martha and the other....well ^ What you have up there (as to avoid spoilers)

Since the US hasnt shown the concluding episodes yet, I guess they went with the non spoiler side of the cover for the press releases boxset images.

Even if we just have the Martha cover, I think its the better version since it keeps in style with the previous releases as companions and Doctor on the cover.

At least he's honest this time about his interest waning. I've talked to him at past Gallifrey Conventions and the last few, he's been pretty "bitchy." The rumors going around (outside of the Gally boards) is that he's not getting noticed enough after keeping the Who fire burning during the shows off-years. Spurned.

Sounds very weak. Very unfortunate since it appears to be such a popular and well made site. I fear with the split that the strong sections will survive (forums/news) while the others will wither or at a minimum be less quantiative(convention/guide).

Can someone point me to the last(v7.0?) thread? Search is coming up with nothing, and the continuation link in v6.0 is broken.

Thanks!

a few minutes ago, the Sci Fi Wire (a news service of The Sci Fi Channel) has posted a story that talks about the DVD extras for Doctor Who spin-off, Torchwood. The bottom of that story also reveals more details about the supplements on Doctor Who - Season 3 than Warner Home Video had previously provided.

Easter Egg of the Doctor's message from the episode "Blink"
I think it's absolutely brilliant they are putting the Doctor's message from Blink as an easter-egg!

Infinite Quest was an animated serial that aired in twelve weekly parts (three and a half minutes each) on Totally Doctor Who during Doctor Who's third series. The serial was then shown altogether along with the 13th finale episode giving it a 45 minute running time.

It featured the voices of David Tennant, Freema Agyeman and Anthony Head.
