Well, it had to happen eventually I suppose.
A tweet from the restoration team, responsible for the classic DVD releases, have recently confirmed the end of the DVD range.
Ace colourist Jonathan Wood grading extras for Moonbase and Underwater Menace. Our final DW DVDs!
The big news in that tweet though is that we are getting two more Troughton classics to finish off the collection in the form of The Moonbase and The Underwater Menace and as these are only partially complete serials, does it mean we are getting more animated episodes and if so in what style can we expect them (Reign of Terror/Tenth Planet or Ice Warriors/The Invasion?)
For those of you with a tendency to read between the lines (and lets face it, thanks to ‘The Moff’ we are all a little guilty of being conspiracy
nuts theorists) the tweet does not state when these final releases shall be with us.
It also doesn’t mention whether or not they’ll be working on Blu-ray releases instead.
Could there be more in the pipeline to come between now and the release of those two that have been kept even more hush-hush than the announcement of the end of the range? Does this also mean that we wont be seeing any more special editions?
What are your thoughts, had you hoped for more special editions or more animated reconstructions or do you feel that this is a good place to call it a day?
