This past week we brought you BBC Home Entertainment's announcement
that on August 14th
they will release Doctor Who - Story #051: Spearhead From Space: Special Edition
, and the new-to-DVD title Doctor Who - Story #155: The Greatest Show in the Galaxy
. Both of these single-disc titles, priced at $24.98, have extensive bonus material on them, but we didn't have complete info for you at the time about those extras. Nor did we have package art for Greatest Show
, either! Now we have that box image for you, shown at bottom (along with a rerun of the Spearhead: SE
artwork). We also have info about the extras for you on both titles; however we should point out that the Spearhead: SE
list of bonus material is directly from the BBC, but the Greatest Show
list is instead copied-and-pasted from the British Board of Film Classification. It's probably accurate, but possibly incomplete. If we find out anything further, we'll certainly update you!
Doctor Who - Story #051: Spearhead From Space: Special Edition (Jon Pertwee as the 3rd Doctor)
1 disc, 97 minutes, 4 episodes, full frame video, English mono audio, English subtitles
Exile! The Time Lords have banished the newly regenerated Doctor to Earth. But the Doctor isn't the only alien to have arrived, as a swarm of meteorites have crashed into the sleepy English countryside, bringing with them a terrible new threat to mankind. As the Nestene plan takes shape, UNIT, the Doctor and his newly appointed scientific advisor, Liz Shaw, race against time to stop humanity being replaced by a terrifying plastic facsimile race.
