Doctor Who is backâ€¦ and itâ€™s about time. No really, it is about time. Itâ€™s only been 14 years since Doctor Who the TV Movie â€“ starring Paul McGann in the title role – was first broadcast on American and Canadian TV, and still to this day we donâ€™t have a DVD release of this story.
Heck, we donâ€™t even have a VHS release of this story.
But today Wednesday August 25 2010, that all changes with the news from Dan Hall himself â€“ commissioning editor for Classic Doctor Who at 2Entertain â€“ that the TV Movie is to get a DVD release in North America, Australia, and New Zealand estimating that we will see it sometime within the next 12 months.
The news broke on Hoo on Whoâ€™s podcast blog earlier today and can be heard at hooonwho.libsyn.com.
But if you donâ€™t want to listen to the pod cast â€“ canâ€™t see why you wouldnâ€™t since it is very short and a good listen – just stick you head out the window and listen to all the lucky Doctor Who fans singing and dancing for joy in the streets over this news. Why are they so excited? Werenâ€™t you reading above? Itâ€™s only because itâ€™s the TV Movie, in North America, Australia,Â and New Zealand on DVD! Not enough for you? Ok, howâ€™s this: not only are we getting the movie itself, but itâ€™s also going to be the new DVD release from the UK Revisitation Box Set with all the bells and whistles.
Howâ€™s that then? Wait, is that singing I hear? Yes, yes it is…
Madame Butterfly if I am not mistaken.
