First Doctor DVD Box Set
Accompanying this news item is the cover art (and a hi-res option) to the Doctor Who DVD box set The Space Museum and The Chase, available from 2entertain in March.
These two consecutive adventures feature the first complete changeover of companions in Doctor Who – broadcast in 1965, the Doctor’s companion Susan had already departed the TARDIS several episodes earlier to be replaced soon after by Vicki (Maureen O’Brien). By the end of The Chase, only William Hartnell remains of the series original cast, as William Russell and Jacqueline Hill’s characters Ian Chesterton and Barbara Wright find a way back to their own time on Earth!
The Space Museum: The TARDIS jumps a time track and the travellers arrive on the planet Xeros. There they discover their own future selves displayed as exhibits in a museum established as a monument to the Galactic conquests of the warlike Morok invaders who now rule the planet. When time shifts back to normal, they realise that they must do everything they can to try to avert this potential future.
The Chase: The travellers are forced to flee in the TARDIS when they learn from the Time/Space Visualiser taken from the Moroks’ museum that a group of Daleks equipped with their own time machine are on their trail with orders to exterminate them.
Released on Monday, 1st March 2010, the The Space Museum and The Chase DVD box set has an RRP of Â£29.99 – however you can preorder it right now from Amazon for just Â£17.98!
