The wife and I only recently started enjoying classic who stories (we started with Eccleston/Tennant), but when we did dip into classic Who, Sarah Jane certainly stood out.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Sad, sad news. Her cancer was kept hush-hush, her colleagues had no idea; typical stoic Brit, I guess. As has been noted, the Doctor keeps regenerating, but there can be only one Sarah Jane. As much as I will miss the Sarah Jane Adventures (a fine kids' view of the Dr. Who universe, as much fun in its way as the grown-up show), there should be no thought of carrying on without Elisabeth Sladen. She really was irreplaceable.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Very sad news. I can't believe she was 63 and ill; she looked great for age and didn't look the least bit unhealthy. I haven't seen too many Sarah Jane serials just yet, but of the ones I have seen she made a lasting impression and I loved her appearances with the Tenth Doctor.

When I heard the news it felt like someone hit me with a bag of bricks. Gonna miss Sarah Jane and more importantly the lovely lady that played her...rest in piece Elisabeth .

They most likely will give the show closure. The writers and producers all have pretty much been saying the same thing, there may be 11 Doctors but there's only 1 Sarah Jane. It's being reported that most of the shooting for next season is finished so maybe we'll get a goodbye shades of Brandon's in the Crow.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Some DVD/Blu-Ray updates:

From TV Shows on DVD:

Now BBC Video, in conjunction with North American distributor Warner Home Video, has formally announced Doctor Who - The 6th Series, Part 1 on DVD and BD, scheduled to street on July 19th (that's a bit earlier than we expected, but the same announcement confirms to plan on getting the second half of the season in November, which is what we previously expected). Look for the following 7 episodes (note that these are the finalized story titles for these installments, which may be different than mentioned in previous reports): "The Impossible Astronaut," "Day of the Moon," "The Curse of the Black Spot," "The Doctor’s Wife," "The Rebel Flesh," "The Almost People" and "A Good Man Goes to War".

The DVD-format release of Doctor Who - The 6th Series, Part 1 will cost $24.98 SRP, with anamorphic widescreen video and English Dolby Surround 5.1 audio, and English subtitles. The Blu-ray Disc version will cost $29.98 SRP, and includes high-def widescreen video and English DTS 5.1 sound (probably Master Audio format, but if so that tidbit was left off the provided info). English subtitles will be present on this version, too. Both run 315 minutes, and include a featurette called "Monster Files"; the studio describes it this way: "Get under the skin and inside the minds of the new Doctor's most challenging opponents - included in this release: The Silence and Gangers"

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I might bite on these smaller half-seasons. There's not many extras, but what about those little extra "mini-sodes" they've been filming?

Hopefully, they'll be on the Complete Series 6 when it's released at the end of the year but we'll see. They never released the mini-episodes they shot for Series 2.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I have almost all of the 24 that haven't been released on dvd yet on Vhs and I think the Ambassadors Of Death looks pretty good. I don't think it needs Extensive Restoration maybe just a remaster.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

It frustrates me that they don't seem to want to (or have money to) do what they did with The Invasion for the missing episodes when they have a partial series to work with. I thought it was brilliantly done!

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

It's a money issue. The Invasion was funded through another part of the BBC for the series anniversary on the web. The end project was eventually handed over for it's DVD release. The budget to create animation for missing episodes is way above what the Restoration Team is given to create a DVD release.

There's a stir right now with some secret project Ian Levine is working on on his own that includes some animation featuring previous Doctors. What that is is currently unknown.

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I thought the somewhat high MSRP on Who DVDs was what helped to fund the restoration of the damaged eps?

I wonder if there's any way to let animators donate their time to finishing eps like that?

There's always animators willing to donate their time and have repeatedly said so on the Gally Boards but the BBC has yet to take up their offer.

I found this site for north american DVD releases. It seems pretty complete as to bonus fetures, dates, rumours, etc. I just wanted to share that with you all:

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

Yeah. I quote from Steve all the time. He has contacts at BBC America and usually has DVD information WAY before anyone else. It's a great site for every little detail.


Also - Coming September 13:

Fans of the original program that collect the DVD releases will recall that this was previously done with a 2007 title, Doctor Who - Story #046 The Invasion. That one was with the 2nd Doctor, Patrick Troughton, but Reign of Terror - the story about the TARDIS materializing during the darkest period in French history - features the 1st Doctor (William Hartnell) and companions "Susan" (Carole), "Barbara" (Jacqueline Hill) and "Ian" (William Russell).

The 6-episode story arc was originally broadcast in 1964, and the tapes containing this entire production was wiped/junked on BBC order in the '70s. Overseas copies of episodes 1, 2, 3, and 6 were later located and have been remastered, restored, but episodes 4 ("The Tyrant of France") and 5 ("A Bargain of Necessity") remain unfound. So according to one tweet yesterday, the BBC and 2|entertain has commissioned Theta-Sigma/Thetamation and Big Finish Studios to take the existing audio (lovingly saved from the broadcasts on tape recorders by fansall these years!) and restore/remaster it, and marry it up to new animation that will re-create the scenes of the live-action broadcast. They also have said that Mark Ayres, of the Doctor Who Restoration Team, will be involved.

By now are you wondering what the results will look like? @ClassicDW tweeted a character study image (shown below) that gives us an idea of how this will look. A good start, in my opinion. Our thanks to reader Jessie Loflin for the heads-up about this info. It's not going to be ready until 2012, so there's a long wait before we get to enjoy this. But stay tuned, and we'll keep you updated as further developments occur!

Re: The One & Only DOCTOR WHO DVD Thread (8th Incarnation)

I'm glad they're doing this for another serial. I can't imagine it is cheap to produce these things, and it's nice to see them show a commitment to bringing us as much Classic Who as possible. I doubt they'll ever do this for the serials where more than half of the episodes have been lost or destroyed, but hopefully they'll do it at some point for The Tenth Planet and The Ice Warriors too.

Awesome news.


Was wondering though if audio exists for all the lost eps? Is it possible we could eventually have all of Who available?

As far as I know, audio exists for every lost episode of Doctor Who; you can get most, if not all, of the lost serials on CD. I guess that could mean eventually they'd do animation reconstructions of entire serials, but I just don't see that happening. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

I am grateful that they're doing this, but I really wish they would give priority to the more important/science fiction/mythological kind of stories over the historicals.

I'm thinking of this like Daleks' Masterplan, Tenth Planet, Power of the Daleks, etc.

Problem with 2 of these is that they'd have to animate 9 of the 12 episodes for Dalek's Master Plan and all 6 episodes of Power of the Daleks. It's just easier to do the shorter ones. I can see Tenth Planet happening because they'd only need 1 episode animated.

For the Audio Only releases on CD, there's 2 volumes so far:

Doctor Who: The Lost TV Episodes: Collection 1: 1964-1965
Doctor Who: The Lost TV Episodes: Collection 2: 1965-1966
