    Default Easy Love: Terror and Spearhead Out on Plastic Disc Now!

    A new version of Spearhead from the Space is paired with Terror of the Autons for this Pertwee-tastic boxset.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    Is that like a 'Revisitations' version of Spearhead, do we know (ie, re-restored, with more extras)? Either way, quite a nice pairing - particularly for anybody (like, well, me!!) who hasn't bought Spearhead yet!

    These stories have too much in common to be paired together! Why isn't "Terror of the Autons" shackled up with "Greatest Show In The Galaxy"?

    certainly hoping this is true an updated version of Spearhead was one of the few revisitation stories I wanted to get so i'm delighted it's could be coming out with terror.

    I've deliberately never bought Spearhead on DVD as I knew it'd be released again at some point, so this is excellent news!

    I do seriously wonder if this will be a Blu Ray/DVD double pack, as they've repeatedly hinted that "Spearhead" could come out on Blu Ray.

    Unless they expect us to buy it AGAIN at some future date?

    I don't think a DVD/Blu Ray double pack would be a good idea... after all, not everyone has Blu Ray.

    (i.e. I might throw a hissy fit at 2|Entertain!)

    Do you know what they call me in the ancient legends of the Dalek homeworld? The Oncoming Storm.

    A reasonable cover, if graded down to suck the life out of it - but I'm just glad its appearance suggests we'll get this amazing story sooner, rather than later? Perhaps it could be a Pertwee Summer on DVD?

    After years of getting ignored by 2-entertain (IGNORED!) 2011 is the YEAR OF JON!

    Lovers of the great man rejoice!

    Yay!

    I demand that you spend the rest of the year dressed as Perthuis d'Lavilland!
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    I do get the urge to patronise people in the cloak though.

    You say 'Watched' but it was more 'peered at through the murk'. Nah, I'm kidding, the recolourisation of Terror of The Autons was extremely good for the time. I'm hoping it'll be even better now!

    here are full details of the set:
    BBC DVD DOCTOR WHO - MANNEQUIN MANIA featuring a re-release of SPEARHEAD FROM SPACE and TERROR OF THE AUTONS.

    Featuring two classic stories, Spearhead From Space Special Edition and Terror of the Autons, starring fan favourite Jon Pertwee as the third Doctor, Doctor Who: Mannequin Mania will be available on DVD from 9th May 2011. All episodes are newly remastered, utilising advances in technology and technique, and are supported by an expanded collection of bonus features.

    DVD EXTRAS - SPEARHEAD FROM SPACE:

    * Two Commentaries – One with actors Caroline John and Nicholas Courtney and another with producer Derrick Sherwin and script editor Terrance Dicks.

    * Down to Earth – Cast and crew look back at the making of this story and how a strike at the BBC studios inadvertently created the only classic series story to be made entirely on film. With actor Jon Pertwee, producers Derrick Sherwin and Barry Letts, script editor Terrance Dicks, costume designer Christine Rawlins and assistant script editor (and inadvertent Auton actor) Robin Squire. Narrated by Carl Kennedy.

    * Regenerations - From Black and White to Colour – ‘Spearhead from Space’ marked not only the arrival of a new Doctor but also the transition from black and white to colour. This documentary looks at the challenges faced by programme makers during this period. With actors Frazer Hines and Wendy Padbury, producer Derrick Sherwin, script editor Terrance Dicks, directors Timothy Combe, Christopher Barry and Michael Ferguson, designer Roger Cheveley and graphic designer Bernard Lodge.

    * UNIT Recruitment Film (dur. 4’ 48”) – a spoof army recruitment film put together for BBC transmission during Doctor Who’s 30th anniversary celebrations in 1993.


    DVD EXTRAS - TERROR OF THE AUTONS:

    * Commentary - With actors Katy Manning and Nicolas Courtney, producer Barry Letts.

    * Life on Earth – In this documentary, cast and crew look back at the making of the story and the differences in the way Doctor Who was made in the seventies compared to now. With actors Jon Pertwee, Katy Manning and Richard Franklin, producer Barry Letts, script editor Terrance Dicks and new series producer Phil Collinson.

    * The Doctor’s Moriarty – with the introduction of the Master, the Doctor now had his very own Moriarty, who would be the dark figure behind every story in season eight, and many more beyond that. This featurette discusses the enduring appeal of the character. With actor Katy Manning, producer Barry Letts, script editors Terrance Dicks and Christopher H Bidmead and writers Robert Shearman and Joe Lidster.

    * Plastic Fantastic – how did the writers of Doctor Who and other programmes take something as everyday as plastic and turn it against us? With writers Francesca Gavin, Robert Shearman and new series designer Matthew Savage.
