The time has finally arrived for The Three Who Rule to cast their eyes back on Series 6 of Doctor Who via their annual commentary series. Things kick off with, of course, The Impossible Astronaut, as the lads talk over what they felt to be one of the best opening episodes for any series of NuWho… and as ever, rarely staying on topic. But for every beginning there’s an ending as the last ever episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures graced the small screen this past week, and things just won’t be the same without Lis Sladen. The news of the week rounds out the show with a look at DVDs, books, and the latest from the rumour mill.

February 2012 North America Doctor Who DVD Releases

Although Amazon.ca jumped the gun with this release information some weeks back, and although we’ve already covered this on the podcast, it is now confirmed that the February 2012 North American DVD releases will be the William Hartnell story The Sensorites and the special edition of the Peter Davison story The Caves of Androzani.

With a release date of February 14, The Sensorites is a brand new release; however, North America is still catching up with the first Revisitations set as released in the UK, and Caves rounds out that collection. The Revisitations releases are of course now the only releases lagging behind the UK.

UPDATE: The finalized DVD art has been unveiled (click each picture to see larger versions of the covers), and the names of the extras on The Sensorites DVD have also been unveiled. Check out the TVShowsOnDVD entry to see those here.

The Caves of Androzani will be a two-disc release and will retail for $34.98, while the single-disc The Sensorites will carry a $24.98 MSRP.

Check out TVShowsOnDVD.com for more details.
