Doctor Who - 1st Doctor Story 'The Sensorites' Among 5 Classic DVDs Slated for February and March least according to listings found at Amazon's Canadian branch, as the studio hasn't announced these yet!

Posted by David Lambert
We've already reported on the first two classic-show DVD releases of 2012, the January 10th shipments of Doctor Who - Story #071: Invasion of the Dinosaurs with Jon Pertwee's 3rd Doctor, and Doctor Who - Story #083: The Android Invasion with Tom Baker's 4th Doctor. These titles can be pre-ordered from and have been formally announced by BBC Video and their North American distributor, Warner Home Video (WHV). Neither studio has announced any 2012 releases beyond that, and isn't showing anything further yet, either. But today (the big e-tailer's Canadian branch) added pre-order listings for 5 more classic titles, shown to be available in February and March!

The 6-part adventure from the program's first year of transmission, Doctor Who - Story #007: The Sensorites, stars William Hartnell as the 1st Doctor, Carole Ann Ford as his granddaughter Susan Foremen, and William Russell and Jacqueline Hill as companions Ian and Barbara.'s pre-order listing shows a sweetheart of a release date, on February 14th (Valentine's Day). Cost is CA$30.98 SRP there in Canada; we therefore expect the USA pricing to likely be $24.98 SRP. No other information, nor box art, is provided there.

Available on the same date of February 14th is Doctor Who - Story #136: The Caves Of Androzani: Special Edition, a newly-remastered release of the farewell story for Peter Davison's 5th Doctor. The 4-part arc co-stars Nicola Bryant as "Peri," and you'll also see Anthony Ainley as "The Master," Janet Fielding as "Tegan," Sarah Sutton as "Nyssa," Matthew Waterhouse as "Adric" and of course Colin Baker's introduction as the 5th Doctor. Cost shown at the entry is CA$43.98 SRP for Canadians, indicating that a state-side list price is probably going to clock in at $34.98 SRP. So far there is no word on details, packaging, or bonus material.

The final 3 items newly listed at aren't actually up for pre-order as of this writing; they each simply say "Sign up to be notified when this item becomes available." However, the entries for Doctor Who - Story #037: The Tomb Of The Cybermen: Special Edition (Patrick Troughton's 2nd Doctor), Doctor Who - Story #065: The Three Doctors: Special Edition (Jon Pertwee's 3rd Doctor joining forces with the 1st and 2nd Doctors against Omega) and Doctor Who - Story #090: The Robots Of Death: Special Edition (Tom Baker's 4th Doctor) each show a release date of March 13th in the "product details" section, No pricing, packaging, specs or supplements have been revealed in's entries at this time, but stay tuned for updates! Our thanks to reader Matthew Ryan for his vital assistance with this story.
