TV Movie Stateside Special Features

Doctor Who TV Movie new DVD releaseEven if you’re the type that heralds the Doctor Who TV Movie as a bit mediocre (which, let’s face it, is most of us), it’s hard to not be excited about its release on DVD.  In the UK, it’s part of the Revisitations Box Set.  But the subjects of Uncle Sam will finally have the opportunity to own a copy of Paul McGann’s finest hour, all by itself, this February!

This “Special Edition” DVD will be yours for the initial price of $34.98, which is quite a lot, even for a Doctor Who DVD.  But you’ll likely get your money’s worth, as there appears to be enough special features to rival those of The Lord of the Rings extended edition sets:

  • Two Audio Commentaries
  • The Seven Year Hitch
  • The Doctor’s Strange Love
  • Photo Gallery
  • Music Tracks
  • PDF materials: Radio Times Listings
  • Production Notes Subtitle Option
  • Visual Effects Tests June 1994
  • Visual Effects March 1996
  • EPK
  • Behind the Scenes
  • Philip Segal’s Tour of the TARDIS Set
  • Alternate Takes
  • BBC Trailers
  • Who Peter 1989-2009
  • The Wilderness Years
  • Stripped for Action – The Eighth Doctor
  • Tomorrow’s Times – The Eighth Doctor
  • Easter Eggs

The North American release of Doctor Who: The TV Movie will occur on February 8, 2011, just in time for Valentine’s Day!  What better way is there to show your loved one how much you care than to get him or her a copy of Sylvester McCoy’s regeneration story for you to watch?

One Response to TV Movie Stateside Special Features

    Folks tend to get down on the TV movie–I had issues with it as well–but I caution these nay-sayers that it was more similar to the newer series than many would like to admit. At the time, sure there were some questionable elements but that was then. People were in a furious uproar about “the kiss” yet these days, it pales in comparison to the snogging that goes on in the current series. The Eye of Harmony being inside the Tardis, could easily be explained away as a merely link to the actual one back on Gallifrey. Even the notorious claim that the Doctor is half human: do we trust anything the Master says? I forget, was that after the kiss, you know, like when 10 kissed Martha to throw the Judoon off his tracks? Anything’s possible. No, the only thing I can condemn the movie for is casting Eric Roberts as the Master. That was bad. Very bad. The rest, I let slide because there was a welcome back for Syl and welcome costume change, a regeneration and a fun adventure with good acting, except for Roberts.
