Doctor Who - One of the 5th Doctor's Companions, Tegan, is Possessed by Mara in 'Kinda' and 'Snakedance'


Both classic stories will be available - separately, mind you - on DVD this April

Back in October we posted an article which went over some of the various old-series Doctor Who DVD releases that could be expected for North America in the early part of 2011. Among those titles were Doctor Who - Story #119: Kinda and Doctor Who - Story #125: Snakedance (both starring Peter Davison as the 5th Doctor). Now distributor Warner Home Video and the BBC have formally announced both of these classic titles for release on April 12th.

Below you will find the available information for both titles, including bonus material. In the United Kingdom these two story arcs are only being sold together as "Mara Tales, but in the USA and Canada it is the opposite: they are only being solicited to retailers as individual titles. Packaging for both of these can be found at the bottom. Enjoy!

  • Doctor Who - Story #119: Kinda (Peter Davison as the 5th Doctor)
      1 disc, 125 minutes, 4 episodes, full frame video, English mono audio, English subtitles, $24.98 SRP

        The Doctor arrives on the paradise planet of Deva Loka to find a colonial mission on the verge of collapse. Several of its members have vanished into the jungle without a trace, leaving the survivors suspicious and paranoid. The mystery deepens as it becomes clear that the planet's native inhabitants, the Kinda, possess hitherto unsuspected powers that challenge human understanding. Meanwhile the Doctor's companion Tegan becomes possessed by the Mara, a force of pure evil that lives in dreams and preys on fear.

  • Doctor Who - Story #125: Snakedance (Peter Davison as the 5th Doctor)

        The TARDIS makes an unplanned landing on Manussa, where preparations are underway to celebrate the defeat of the Sumaran Empire five centuries earlier. But the ancient evil of the Mara lives on, and Tegan, who has been haunted by disturbing dreams since her time under the Windchimes on Deva Loka, is now a pawn in its plan to re-enter the physical world and subjugate the Manussan people. Only the Doctor can stop the Mara - but first he must convince the authorities that he is not just a deluded fool who believes in children's fairytales.
