Doctor Who – UNIT Box DVDs

Invasion of the Dinoaurs T-Rex
Doctor Who blog Blogtor Who has noted that being featured in the Coming Soon trailer from the upcoming Colony in Space DVD is The UNIT Box.

The UNIT Box will be a 2-story release featuring the Jon Pertwee story Invasion of the Dinosaurs and the final Tom Baker-era UNIT story The Android Invasion. Details regarding contents or price, and the release date itself, are as yet unknown, though this source states an early 2012 release is most likely; the Colony in Space DVD, on which the Coming Soon trailer appears, is set for a UK release on October 3 and US/Canada release on November 8.

The BBFC classification for the UNIT Box trailer came through in late July, though recently Colony in Space screener copies have made their way to review outlets making the information more widespread.

Let’s Kill Hitler Motion Comic

Doctor Who episode Let’s Kill Hitler aired on BBC America this past weekend with a special (corporate-sponsored) bonus scene: a motorcycle chase through the streets of Berlin that wasn’t filmed for certain reasons. This short scene was ultimately realized through a motion comic – have a look at the scene and beyond:

Doctor Who is back! After what seemed equally both a long summer and a short summer, Doctor Who has returned to our screens with Let’s Kill Hitler — and of course the Three Who Rule were all over the episode to deliver their review. But wait, there’s more! Torchwood is still making its way toward the end of Miracle Day, so of course the lads throw in their two cents about End of the Road. What do they think about these new offerings from the Whoniverse? Lastly, along with the usual news and stats, we also speak with Doctor Who Brand Manager Edward Russell about his upcoming Walk for Lis!

Doctor Who Episode 13 Title Revealed

As mentioned by The Radio Times, and now confirmed by the BBC, the title of Episode 13 of the current series of Doctor is the intriguing The Wedding of River Song. Read a mini-preview of each episode of Series 6.2 on the BBC Doctor Who website here.

Last week, The Daily Star had reported the title for Episode 13 to be The Wedding, so it appears they were at least partially correct.

The list of episodes titles for the latter half of Series 6 is now complete, and here it is:

8. Let’s Kill Hitler, by Steven Moffat
9. Night Terrors, by Mark Gatiss
10. The Girl Who Waited, by Tom MacRae
11. The God Complex, by Toby Whithouse
12. Closing Time, by Gareth Roberts
13. The Wedding of River Song, by Steven Moffat

Doctor Who Episode 12 Title

Continuing in the new tradition of stealing the BBC’s thunder, a BBC America press release today revealed the title of Gareth Roberts’ episode 12 as Closing Time.

The BBC had thus far kept the titles for Episodes 12 and 13 under wraps, but with this announcement, all titles are now known for the latter half of Series 6 with the exception of Steven Moffat’s Episode 13 finale. Of course nobody outside of the production office knows when that last title will be revealed, but it wouldn’t be surprising if the BBC kept it hidden for a while yet, despite the imminent return of the series.

The episodes titles for the latter half of Series 6 are:

8. Let’s Kill Hitler, by Steven Moffat
9. Night Terrors, by Mark Gatiss
10. The Girl Who Waited, by Tom MacRae
11. The God Complex, by Toby Whithouse
12. Closing Time, by Gareth Roberts
13. Unknown, by Steven Moffat
