An excellent bit of relase news, with two exciting Doctor Who DVD releases for the last quarter, with the Tom Baker adventure Planet of Evil and the animated Infinite Quest starring David Tennant!
Planet of Evil tells the story of some sentient anti-matter that seeks revenge on a party of geologists who acquired some anti-matter samples. Sound familiar? Well there are similarities in the theme of 42, but they really are thematic differences, with Planet of Evil being more about fear and danger (mainly due to the fact that it is twice as long as it’s Series 3 successor!)
The extras are detailed on the BBC’s Official Doctor Who site as:
* Commentary – With actors Tom Baker, Elisabeth Sladen and Prentis Hancock, producer Philip Hinchcliffe.
* A Darker Side – With producer Philip Hinchcliffe, writer Louis Marks, designer Roger Murray-Leach, director David Maloney, actors Tom Baker, Elisabeth Sladen and Prentis Hancock.
* Planetary Performance – a look at the making of the story from an actor’s perspective. With actors Tom Baker, Elisabeth Sladen, Prentis Hancock, Tony McEwan and Graham Weston.
* Studio Scene – the only surviving behind-the-scenes footage from the story.
