Doctor Who - 'The Ambassadors of Death' Announced for 2-DVD Set with The 3rd Doctor

The recently-departed Caroline John co-stars as companion Liz Shaw

Posted by David Lambert
    Something has gone seriously wrong with Mars Probe 7. With no contact from the astronauts since the rocket started its return journey from Mars, Space Control is now extremely worried about the fate of the crew. A rescue mission recovers something - but whatever it is, it certainly isn't human. To find out what has happened to the astronauts, the Doctor must head into space without the TARDIS.
This fall, BBC Home Entertainment will release Doctor Who - Story #053: The Ambassadors of Death as a 2-DVD set. This 7-episode story arc from 1970 stars the late Jon Pertwee as the 3rd Doctor, the late Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart of UNIT, and the recently-deceased Caroline John as companion Liz Shaw. Running time is approximately 171 minutes, and the cost for this title will be $34.98 SRP. Package art can be seen below, along with an pre-order link which tells us that the street date is October 2nd. The finalized list of extras hasn't been made available yet, but we are expecting the bonus material to include Audio Commentary on all 7 episodes, the "Mars Probe 7" making-of Featurette, a Trailer, a Photo Gallery, and "Tomorrow's Times: The Third Doctor" as well. Stay tuned and we'll keep you updated about this classic title, as further developments occur!
