The Sensorites – Out Now!

New classic Doctor Who DVD - The SensoritesThe Sensorites – the 1964 William Hartnell serial – is ripe for rediscovery and who better to take you on that road to reconciliation with the Sense-Sphere than 2|entertain?

A thought-provoking attempt at creating Doctor Who’s first truly peaceful, albeit misguided, alien race in a multifaceted mystery? Or slower than coastal erosion storytelling that ludicrously uses sash swapping as a key twist in the narrative?

You decide!

Helping you make that decision are some fantastic extras including:

• Commentary
Vision On – What exactly does a Vision Mixer do?
Secret Voices of the Sense-Sphere – Clive Doig reveals the origins of the eerie Sensorite voices.
• Photo Gallery
• Coming Soon Trailer
Radio Times Listings
• Production Subtitles
• Programme Subtitles
• Digitally Remastered Picture and Sound Quality

Worthy of the cost all by itself is Looking for Peter – fronted by the witty amicable Toby Hadoke (Moths Ate My Doctor Who Scarf) this touching, illuminating documentary goes in search of the enigmatic Peter R Newman – writer of The Sensorites – who vanished from writing altogether (this sole credit for Doctor Who is his last as a television writer) and remained in obscurity up until his death – which due to his withdrawal from public life couldn’t  even be verified down to a year.

It says something about the warmth and compassion of this documentary that by its conclusion you could very well be a little misty eyed.

The Sensorites is in shops now, with an RRP of £20.42. However you can save money by shopping at Amazon where you will find the DVD for a super-low £12.99!

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
