The BBC has released confirmation of the classic Doctor Who DVD and Blu-ray release calendar for 2013 (as far as September), featuring Terror of the Zygons and The Mind of Evil – as well as the HD release of Spearhead from Space!
Making for interesting reading, the list also includes The Ice Warriors, a polished version of the 1998 VHS release which featured a photo/audio reconstruction of missing episodes two and three, a special edition of The Green Death and The Visitation and – perhaps most curiously – Scream of the Shalka, in which Doctor Who fans met the original Ninth Doctor in Autumn 2003!
- February 25: The Ark in Space: Special Edition
- March 11: The Aztecs: Special Edition (plus Galaxy 4 reconstruction)
- May 6: The Visitation: Special Edition
- May 27: Inferno: Special Edition
- June 3: The Mind of Evil
- June 24: Terror of the Zygons
- July 15: Spearhead from Space Blu-Ray
- August 5: The Green Death: Special Edition
- August 26: The Ice Warriors
- September 16: Scream of the Shalka
The presence of Shalka in the calendar is particularly interesting, and raises the possibility that following the release of the previous BBCi webcast Shada (as part of the Legacy boxset) that we might also be lucky enough to have DVD releases of Real Time and Death Comes to Time.
Time, of course, will tell…
