What is “The Ace Box”?

Purveyors of practically perfect Doctor Who DVDs and special features 2|entertain announced via the @classicdw page this week that work on The Ace Box has begun.

But just what is The Ace Box?

Keeping it simple – after all, Twitter only allows 140 characters – they reported:

The Ace Box commissioned and in production.

We reckon that the guys behind the classic Doctor Who DVDs have either become extremely self-indulgent and created a boxset featuring the very cream of Doctor Who stories from 1963-1989 (which of course would be at least 10 discs long) – or else everyone’s favourite Perivale teenager Dorothy, better known as the Seventh Doctor’s companion Ace. Played by the lovely Sophie Aldred between 1987 and 1989, Ace regularly called the Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) “Professor” by way of a pet name.

We have no idea which serials might form a part of this boxset, but if it is representative of the best of the last two series of “classic era” Doctor Who, we expect The Curse of Fenric to be a dead cert.

Naturally as soon as we have the details, we’ll be letting you know!
