August 2011 North America Doctor Who DVD Releases
|It looks like August 9 will see the North American DVD release of the Seventh Doctor story Paradise Towers; this title doesn’t yet have a UK release date. Amongst the features on the disc are a commentary featuring writer Stephen Wyatt, sound designer Dick Mills and (oddly, perhaps, given he didn’t provide the music score on this story), Mark Ayres. Ayres may be there to offer an insight in David Snell’s unused scored for the story which is included on the disc as an extra. Whether you prefer Snell’s score to Keff McCulloch’s last minute replacement work is another matter…
SRP for the DVD will be $24.98. Check out more details at TVShowsOnDVD.com.
UPDATE: A second DVD, The Sun Makers from Season 15, will also see release on August 9. No artwork has been revealed yet, but a small list of extras has been confirmed including a commentary with Tom Baker, Louise Jameson, Michael Keating, and the late Pennant Roberts, as well as a feature on long time Doctor Who composer Dudley Simpson. The shelf price for this will also be $24.98. Check TVShowsOnDVD.com for more on this release.
UPDATE 2: Artwork for The Sun Makers is now available. TVShowsOnDVD.com has full details on extras.
