R1 News: The Claws of Axos & City of Death - November 1, 2005
From BBC America Shop:

Doctor Who: City of Death (DVD)
The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) and Romana’s (Lalla Ward) plan for a peaceful holiday in Paris soon goes wrong. Cracks are beginning to appear in the fabric of time, indicating that dangerous time experiments are under way. Even the well-beaten path to the Louvre leads the Doctor deeper into mystery, much of which revolves around Count Scarlioni (Julian Glover), a sinister figure who has six Mona Lisa paintings stashed in his cellar - and they’re all originals!

Doctor Who: The Claws of Axos (DVD)
A mysterious object approaches Earth, alerting the Third Doctor (John Pertwee) and UNIT that they face another possible threat from outer space. Are the gold-skinned aliens who claim to bring great gifts to humanity as peaceful and benevolent as they first appear? If so, why is the Doctor’s archenemy, the Master, on board their spaceship?.

City of Death News!
The Restoration Team has let it slip that the City of Death DVD will be a 2 Disc affair!

City of Death article

2005's last DVD release is the extremely popular 'City of Death', which pits Tom Baker's Doctor and Lalla Ward's Romana against the sole survivor of the Jagaroth race in a fast-moving and witty story which features location filming in Paris. 'City of Death' owes much of its success to being co-written by the late, great Douglas Adams and achieved the highest ever viewing figures of any Doctor Who story. Released in the UK and US for the first time on DVD in a lavish two-disc edition, 'City of Death' is bound to end up in many Christmas stockings on both sides of the Atlantic...


First up is a commentary, featuring actors Julian Glover and Tom Chadbon, along with the story's director, Michael Hayes.

Paris in the Springtime is a 45-minute featurette, written by Jonathan Morris and produced by Ed Stradling. It goes behind the scenes on the production of the story, with a particular emphasis on the contribution of Douglas Adams. Appearing in this informative and amusing featurette are Douglas Adams himself (courtesy of two separate interviews shot by Kevin Davies), Julian Glover, Catherine Schell, Tom Chadbon, Michael Hayes, Anthony Read (former script editor), David Fisher (writer of 'A Gamble with Time', the original story which was reworked into 'City of Death'), Pennant Roberts (director of Adam's earlier Doctor Who story, 'The Pirate Planet'), and new series writers Steven Moffat and Rob Shearman, all linked together by narrator Toby Longworth. A particular highlight is the retelling of 'A Gamble with Time', using a beautiful set of illustrations produced for this featurette by artist Jason Lythgoe-Hay.

Paris, W12 allows the viewers a rare 20-minute look inside the studio during the recording of the story, courtesy of extracts from the three Shibaden studio tapes mentioned above.

Prehistoric Landscapes is a short montage of the model landscapes and spaceship effects used in the story, most of which never saw the light of day. Similarly, Chicken Wrangler comically reveals the pitfalls of trying to film live chickens for one of the effects sequences, along with a rather too animated model chicken! Most of the material used in these two featurettes came from private collections and an astonishing amount of it was the original 35mm camera negatives!

Eye on... Blatchford is one of those little regional-interest programmes that the BBC does so well. The programme follows a day in the life of Sardoth, the Second-to-Last of the Jagaroth, as he tries to balance the responsibility of saving his race with his own attempts to fit into life in the rural village of Blatchford. It's not easy when you're green. Oh Mummy, they're at it again...

PC and Mac users will be able to enjoy the entire 1980 Doctor Who Annual in PDF format, courtesy of Steven Bagley.

An 8-minute Photo Gallery highlights cast and design photographs from the story, as well as studio floorplans and set models. Dr Martin Wiggins has supplied the production notes and there's no shortage of interesting Easter Eggs to hunt out and enjoy.

I see they couldn't drag Eccleston in to do a commentary. I won't hold my breath on him doing anything Doctor Who-related any time soon, after the pummelling he took for leaving the series after one season.

odisn 08-17-05 10:11 AM

re: City of Death
Despite all the griping about a 4-episode story getting the 2-disc treatment over on the Outpost Gallifrey forums, that is a nice list of extras and I cannot wait for this disc. One of my all-time favorites...now if I could just get Inferno put on the schedule...

grivet 08-17-05 01:16 PM

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.


The Valeyard 08-19-05 12:25 AM

Eccleston will be back. They all come back in one way or another (via commentaries or documentary specials like Tom Baker or Big Finish Audios like McGann). Even Janet Fielding came back to do commentaries and she's pretty much disowned her time on the show.

And if any 4 Part story deserves a 2-Disc set, it's City of Death. Isn't it still the highest rated Who story ever?

Claws & City Details AND Date Change!
The two titles are now scheduled for November 8th



Doctor Who - 'Claws of Axos' and 'City of Death' details
Posted by Gord Lacey 8/24/2005

We've posted news for both "The Claws of Axos" (episode 57) and "City of Death," (episode 105) but the BBC officially announced both titles today, with a release date of November 8, a week later than originally reported.

David Lambert did such a wonderful job writing up the details of "City of Death," that I won't try to duplicate his efforts here, so please see his previous news item regarding the release. He's only missing the price ($34.98) and the running time (100 mins).

"The Claws of Axos," featuring Jon Pertwee, will be a single-disc release, but it'll still be packed with extras, including:

Audio Commentary by producer Barry Letts, Katy Manning and Richard Franklin

Behind the Scenes Featurette (27 mins)

Now and Then Featurette (7 mins)

Reverse Standards Conversion - The Axon Legacy (10 mins)

Directing Who (15 mins)

Photo gallery

Production Notes

The 96 min DVD will sell for $24.98.

moonraker 08-25-05 10:02 AM

Does the November 8 release date for CITY OF DEATH refer to the UK release only, or does this date also apply to North America? In the past, UK releases would precede North America releases by several months.

David Lambert 08-25-05 12:54 PM

11/8 is the North American date. Originally the NA (region 1) date was 11/1, but has now been pushed back a week. On the original date, USA would get City of Death a few days prior to the UK release. Now it looks like UK might beat USA by a day! According to <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000AWKSU0" target="zonuk">Amazon UK</a>, that title releases there on 11/7. That is probably the entire reason for the delay, mind you...just so UK can get it first! :p

Doctor Who Series 1 (2005) Up at Amazon.com.....
From a post at Outpost Gallifrey:

Amazon.com lists Region 1 2005 Boxed Set

Ok, don't get your hopes up too quickly, but Amazon have listed the 2005 series boxed set on their website in an attempt to gauge public reaction and to provide a feedback to the potential distribution company on how many people are waiting to buy it.

If you want the new series on Region 1 DVD then go here and sign up to show you are interested. This is NOT a pre-order, but just stating that you're interested in buying it:


So get over there and let your voice be heard!

David Lambert 08-26-05 11:12 AM

An Amazon rep has told me that the way they decide to put up those "Availability: NOT YET RELEASED: The studio is currently not producing this title on DVD, but to be notified when it is available..." listings like this one is by the number of people who perform unsuccessful searches on thier system for an unreleased item. Apparently the "qualifying number of searches" is not set in stone, but depends on the item. But once enough people show an interest in something, Amazon just collects their names in an attempt to build up a mailing list and provide some sense of security to themselves that "if this ever does get released, the customer will hopefully buy it from us because we took their name".

Region 2 News: Complete Series 1 Box Set Details
From Outpost Gallifrey:

We've received several reports about additional extras for the Series One Boxed Set, due out this November containing all 13 episodes from series one of the new TV series starring Christopher Eccleston. According to the British Board of Film Classification, the "Doctor Who Confidential Cut Down" specials -- the BBC3 documentaries shortened by removing all references to the original series and focusing solely on the new -- will be included, though the BBFC only reports the first seven have been cleared; however, it was reported earlier that all thirteen plus one additional special, that of the "extra" Confidnetial episode being specially produced for the DVD, would be on the discs. Amazon.co.uk, meanwhile, is reporting additional extras including commentaries, "Billie Piper’s Video Diary," "Making Doctor Who with Russell T Davies," "Waking The Dead (Mark Gatiss' video diary)," "Exclusive featurettes: Destroying the Lair; Mike Tucker’s Mocks of Balloons; Designing Doctor Who,; Laying Ghosts – The Origins of The Unquiet Dead; Deconstructing Big Ben, The Adventures of Captain Jack"; "BBC Breakfast Interview with Christopher Eccleston" plus the Confidential specials, 5.1 surround sound, a collectors' booklet and subtitles. Additionally, the boxed set will feature a variety of pre- and post-broadcast trailers including the "Time Is Up" teasers, the "Saturdays at 7pm" series of trailers, the trailers aired in conjunction with "Strictly Come Dancing" and the "Countdown" trailer. Outpost Gallifrey has been told that there will be an official press release on the set's final contents later this month.

DVD Tidbits
Stolen from Doctor Who North American DVD & VHS FAQ

As reported here earlier, BBC Worldwide Americas and Warner had been planning on advancing the months in which new DVDs are released in 2006 to February, May, August, and November. They have now reversed that decision, and the 2006 DVDs will instead come out in the same calendar pattern as they have in the previous two years, which is to say March, June, September, and November. In each of those months, they will either release 2 individual story titles or 1 box set. All of those titles will come from the backlog of titles already or about-to-be available in the UK (Region 2), and the contents of each disc will be identical to the UK contents.

BBC Worldwide Americas have dropped the suggested retail price on the DVDs that were released from 2001 to 2003. The new SRP on these titles is $19.98 on 1-disc releases and $29.98 on 2-disc releases. This is a decrease of $5 in both cases.* The Key to Time box set has also been reduced to $100. Meanwhile, amazon.com are currently offering these same DVDs at an even bigger discount. The single-disc DVDs are going there for only $13.99, and the double-disc DVDs are $20.99, and the whole Key to Time box set is now only $70 at amazon.com DVDs released since 2004 are still suggested to retail at $24.95 for singles and $34.95 for doubles.

BBC Worldwide in the UK has decided that all future Doctor Who DVDs in all worldwide markets must henceforth have exactly the same contents on the discs themselves. This is being done as an economizing measure at the facility that authors the DVD masters for all markets. This means that the two extra features we’ve grown accustomed to on the Region 1 discs that are not on the Region 2 or 4 discs will no longer be appearing. These are the Howard Da Silva introduction featuretts on the early Tom Baker stories, and the Who’s Who text biographies of the principal cast members. The Da Silva intros have already been dropped for the new September DVDs (Horror of Fang Rock would’ve had one), and the Who’s Who bios will disappear as of the November releases.

Doctor Who on UMD
From Outpost Gallifrey:

According to Play.com, the first series of Doctor Who from this year is not only available on DVD, plus will also be released on the new UMD format for the Sony Playstation Portable (PSP). The release will occur in mid-October and it will start with the second disc, apparently, as there's no word on the first disc being made available

The official website today confirmed our story from yesterday that Series One Volume Two would be released on the UMD disc format used by Sony in their Playstation console system. The disc will be released on 17 October, featuring "Aliens of London," "World War Three" and "Dalek". The site notes, however, that "Volumes One, Three and Four will follow in December, although a specific date has yet to be announced. Discs will cost £17.99 each."

Scream of the Shalka DVD?
September 29, 2005

While there is currently no official word from BBC Worldwide, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has cleared the six episodes of The Scream of the Shalka for DVD release, reportedly at some time in the spring of 2006. "Shalka," the animated webcast serial created for BBCi prior to the announcement of the new series, stars Richard E. Grant, Sophie Okonedo and Derek Jacobi and was written by Paul Cornell. We'll keep you posted on further developments.

Series One Box Set Region 1 release in Canada!!
From Outpost Gallifrey:

Canadian Series Sale and DVD Release
TV Series News
October 18, 2005
According to a BBC press release today, BBC Worldwide Canada has concluded a raft of programming deals and ventures with major networks at this year's MIPCOM conference including a "major licensing deal with CBC Television for the second series of the latest Doctor Who adventures following the critical success of the first series. The deal includes a Christmas special, hosted by Billie Piper exclusively for CBC viewers that air on Boxing Day. The new 13 part adventure is currently filming in Wales and is due to air on CBC in 2006."

Noted within the press release is the fact that "BBC Video is planning to release series one on DVD in February 2006." Outpost Gallifrey has checked with BBC Video today and has been told that they will be releasing the Series One Boxed Set in Canada on February 14. (While there are no US distribution plans for this boxed set due to a lack of a broadcaster, the fact that the DVD is in Canada's NTSC format, shared with the US, suggests there should be a relative ease in acquiring it.)

The broadcast of "The Christmas Invasion" on December 26 is expected to be a day after it airs in the UK; the current expected date of transmission of the story in the UK is currently December 25. (Thanks to Benjamin Elliott, Christopher Yonge and Martin Hoscik/Unit News)
