Claws of Axos DVD Details

The BBC Shop has published details of the DVD release of Claws of Axos, by Bob Baker and Dave Martin. The Season 8 story which stars Jon Pertwee, Katy Manning, Roger Delgado and Nicholas Courtney was previously released on video in 1992.

For those unacquainted, the story features an alien race known as Axons who bring humanity the chance to end food shortages. However, as the Doctor soon finds out, the Master is in league with the apparently benevolent race from Axos…

The Region 2 DVD includes the standard additions plus an interview with director Michael Ferguson and a featurette about the Dungeness nuclear power station which appeared as the Nuton complex. Release is scheduled for May 9th 2005.

Expect a full review of the DVD here at Kasterborous upon release.
