Masque of Mandragora on DVD?

Looks like the Tom Baker serial The Masque of Mandragora is set for a DVD release, although we could be looking at release in 2009.

Still with no nuWho then, who cares? 

According to theunmutual.com website dedicated to the insane but brilliant 1960s series The Prisoner, Masque - which was, like The Prisoner, filmed at the Welsh village of Portmeirion – has been highlighted as one of the Wales-filmed classic series stories that 2|entertain and the Restoration Team are keen to hear locals’ recollections of.

According to North Wales News, the Restoration Team’s Richard Bignell has stated:

"We are aiming to come bnack to Portmeirion in latge Jone.  We know that when the filming was taking place, Portmeririon was open to the public so it would be lovely to hear from anyone who was there at the time."
Robin Llewelln, managing director or Portmeirion said: "I remember the filming first time round.  Who can forget that long scarf!
They painted a couple of the buildings and all the road signs were changed to Italian"

The Masque of Mandragora starred Tom Baker and Lis Sladen as the Doctor and Sarah Jane Smith, was written by Robert Holmes, and was originally broadcast in 1976.
