    Default The Moonbase (with animation) Coming 2014

    The new issue of DWM confirms that The Moonbase is coming to DVD in October, with two animated episodes by Thetamation, who did The Reign of Terror and the as yet unseen Tenth Planet animations.

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

    One of my favourite stories, and a sign that they're seemingly taking this animation lark seriously.

    I've always been rather fond of this one, ever since reading the Target as a kid. So it's well worth raising a glass to celebrate the fact that it's being 'restored' in this way - time for another cocktail, Polly.

    I'll get me coat.

    I'm with Andrew on this. "Doctor Who and The Cybermen" was the first Who book I read, so it's special to me too :-)

    Brilliant news! Unfortunately every episode they've animated so far has been a bit of a duff 'un, but this is the first half decent story they've tackled. I only hope they do "The Crusade" and then tackle a story we actually want back - a real left-field choice would be nice, something like "The Myth Makers" or "The Macra Terror". They've done two episodes to a release, four can't be that much of a stretch.

    It seems very odd not to take the opportunity to put Underwater Menace 3 on the release of The Moonbase.... which makes me think it must surely now be more likely than not, that we'll get a release of Underwater Menace in the same vein as The Moonbase, with two animated episodes. (Here's hoping!)

    They're all not-quite-right in subtle ways!

    There's no way this is coming out next month, as per the release schedule. Things have been tweeted like "just got the face designs in for this" (see above) which suggests it's way off.

    Perhaps, as rumoured, it's being kept in its release slot as a placeholder for "Enemy of the World"?
