Doctor Who - Packaging, Extras for 'Green Death: SE' and 'Spearhead From Space' Blu-ray


August 13th release date for these two classic stories of the Time Lord

    As punishment for breaking the laws of time, the Time Lords have forced the Doctor to change his appearance, taken away his ability to time travel, and exiled him to Earth. But as the TARDIS arrives, so does a meteor shower carrying an alien invasion force....

    Restored from original film elements, Doctor Who classic Spearhead from Space makes its debut in high definition on Blu-ray! Spearhead from Space achieved many firsts for Doctor Who. It is the first Doctor Who story to be presented in color. And due to a strike at the BBC, it is the first Doctor Who story to be shot entirely on film. And now it becomes the first classic Doctor Who Blu-ray, made possible by scanning in the original film elements to create a stunning, true high definition picture!
Yesterday it was announced by the BBC's North American distributor, Warner Home Video, that August 13th will see the releases of Doctor Who - Story #051: Spearhead From Space: Special Edition on high-def Blu-ray Disc, and Doctor Who - Story #069: The Green Death: Special Edition on standard DVD format. Now there's more information for each of these titles, as well as package art (which you can look at by scrolling down to the bottom).

For the Spearhead Blu-ray, the first thing fans will want to know is that the video aspect ratio remains in the original 4x3 "full screen" format which these episodes were originally broadcast in at the beginning of 1970. Audio is English DTS HD-Master Audio 2.0, and English subtitles are included. Warner also lists the extras on this item as including the following: "A Dandy and a Clown * Carry On: The Life of Caroline John * Title Sequence Material * Restoration Comparison: Digitally Remastered Picture and Sound Quality."

For the Green Death SE, Warner brings us this list of bonus material: "* Audio Commentary * Bonus Audio Commentary * The One With the Maggots * Global Conspiracy? * Visual Effects * Robert Sloman Interview * Stewart Bevan Interview * Wales Today * Doctor Forever - The Unquiet Dead * What Katy Did Next * The Sarah Jane Adventures - Death of the Doctor-Parts 1 & 2 * Photo Gallery * Easter Eggs (2) * PDF materials: Radio Times Listings * Production Note Subtitles * Digitally Remastered Picture and Sound Quality." Here's the studio description of this title (the one at the top is for Spearhead), followed by an Amazon pre-order button link for both of these, and then the package art:
    UNIT is called in after a miner from the Welsh village of Llanfairfach is found dead, his skin glowing bright green. Jo joins forces with a local environmental group, led by Professor Clifford Jones, while the Doctor investigates the nearby plant of a company called Global Chemicals. They discover that the mine workings are full of giant maggots and green slime - both lethal to touch - that have been produced by chemical waste pumped from the Global plant.
