Itâ€™s finally being released… the latest (very strong and most likely happening) rumour for the Doctor Who DVD release schedule has turned up in the shape of Paradise Towers.
A 1987 adventure for the Seventh Doctor and Mel, the story sees them arrive at said towers to find that all is not well. Violent gangs roam the graffiti covered streets and most of the houses are deserted but thatâ€™s the least of the TARDIS crew problems when they discover the â€œcleanersâ€ that patrol Paradise Towers, waiting for anyone who stands on their way…
First shown between 5th October and 26th October 1987 the four part story stars Sylvester McCoy as the Doctor with Bonnie Langford as Melanie along with guest stars Richard Briers as the Chief Caretaker, Elizabeth Spriggs as Tabb and Judy Cornwell as Maddy
Stephen Wyatt, the writer of the story confirmed he has recorded an interview for inclusion on the disc as well as being involved in recording the commentary for the story.
This (in my humble opinion) little gem from the McCoy era will be a welcome addition to the DVD fold. So what do you reckon? A long awaited release? Or yet another of Doctor Whoâ€™s weaker titles that you donâ€™t want taking up your valuable shelf space?
Paradise Towers will be released on DVD in 2011.
