Doctor Who Revisited: 7th Doctor

We have a few updates for you good people living in the good old US of A regarding the scheduling for BBC America’s Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited series.

Remembrance of the Daleks

July will celebrate the era of the Seventh Doctor as played by Sylvester McCoy from 1987 until 1996. The documentary will have appearances from Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred (Ace) and Bonnie Langford (Mel). Steven Moffat will even be chucking in his 2 cents to talk about the Seventh Doctor.

Following on from the documentary will be a screening of Remembrance of the Daleks for you to enjoy, which is honestly one of the finest slices of Doctor Who fun you could wish for.

Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited- The Seventh Doctor airs Saturday 27th July at 7pm ET on BBC America.

The Doctor is reunited with the Counter-Measures team in November's Big Finish story

Following on from this, there will be a slight change in the DVD release date for the documentary. Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited Volume 2 will now be available in shops from 1st October 2013 rather than its original release date of 17th September.

This 4-DVD box set will contain documentaries on the Fifth, Sixth, Seventh and Eighth Doctors and will also feature a classic adventure for each of the Doctors that it’s representing. We’re willing to bet our pensions that the TV movie starring Paul McGann will be included within this set.

You can pre-order Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited 5-8 on Amazon for $35.98

What happens when an eight year old kid watches the 1993 repeat run of Planet of the Daleks? He pretty much ends up here writing about the show that grabbed hold of him and never let go!

    Ever since they started doing The Doctors Revisited, I was hoping they would pick Remembrance of the Daleks to represent McCoy. We’ve already had two Cyberman stories, so its time we got a Dalek story, and this is about the best one you can get.

    My only gripe is that since they shifted the broadcasts to Satruday from Sunday, it’ll be the day before my birthday rather than on my birthday. Oh well, suppose one day isn’t too much to complain about.

    “Remembrance” was really the only 4 star/top notch McCoy entry so it’s a natural to represent him. It’s kind of his “Androzani”.

      I disgree. I think The Greatest Show in the Galaxy, The Curse of Fenric, Ghost Light, and Survival are just as equal in quality to Remembrance.

      • avatar Ian says:

        Indeed. Some fans are quite baffling in their strange disregard for one of the most creative and imaginative periods of the series (certainly much more so than the all-too-often-braindead modern series)

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we could enjoy these documentaries and repeats of classic shows in the UK?

    • avatar Mark Lenton says:

      Yes it would… if only it were a British programme maybe there would be more interest in the BBC in doing this…

      Ordered my copy from Amazon US

      Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited 1-4 is released 16th July and is $32.99 plus shipping and any UK import taxes

      Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited 5-8 is released 1st October and is $35.98 plus shipping and any UK import taxes.

      Both sets are NTSC region 1 (US & Canada) encoded.

    The Curse Of Fenric is better IMHO…

    • avatar TimeChaser says:

      You may be right, but Remembrance makes sense as the choice for celebrating the anniversary year. Its the strongest Dalek story of the classic series (and we haven’t had a Dalek story yet), and it brings the Doctor full circle back to Totter’s Lane, Coal Hill School, etc.

  5. avatar Doctor Ron says:

    “Remembrance” is definitely my favorite McCoy story and it’s perfect to represent the 50th Anniversary from that era, considering how it comes back to Coal Hill School and I.M. Foreman’s junkyard.

    I do disagree about it being the only 4-star McCoy entry, though. I think the Curse of Fenric, Battlefield and Survival are pretty darn close.
