Posted by David Lambert
The BBC has announced a pair of classic DVD releases from the early '70s, starring Jon Pertwee as the 3rd Doctor. One's new-to-DVD, and one's a "rerun" of a title released back in 2003! On April 10th you'll get 1971's Doctor Who - Story #059: The Daemons, and 1973's Doctor Who - Story #066: Carnival Of Monsters: Special Edition. Both of these include Katy Manning as companion Jo Grant, and the Daemons also features Roger Delgado as The Master and Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart. As usual, these DVDs are digitally remastered in both picture and sound. Package art for both can be seen at the bottom. A finalized list of bonus material hasn't been provided by the studio yet, but here is all the available information we have for each title at this time:
Doctor Who - Story #059: The Daemons (Jon Pertwee as the 3rd Doctor)

In the peaceful village of Devil's End something very strange is happening. A professor is preparing to open a nearby burial mound, and a local white witch foresees death and disaster. Meanwhile, the new vicar looks suspiciously like the Master, and he is using black magic to conjure up an ancient Daemon. Can the Doctor, Jo and UNIT stop their old enemy before he succeeds?
