March 2012 North America Doctor Who DVD Releases

March 13, 2012 sees a bumper crop of Doctor Who DVD releases in North America!

Not only do we get the entirety of the next Revisitations set, another title in the form of The Face of Evil is on the slate for a grand total of four stories that month.

The Tomb of the Cybermen gets the Special Edition treatment as do The Three Doctors and The Robots of Death. These stories comprise the third wave of Revisitations titles which will have a UK release date not far in advance of the North American release.

Some of the special features and more details for each release can be found at TV Shows On DVD; we’ve already covered some of the other special features here on Radio Free Skaro.

MSRP for each of the Revisitations titles is $34.98 while The Face of Evil has an MSRP of $24.98. Click on the artwork for larger versions.

Update: Complete extras have now been announced for these titles. Many have of course already been covered previously on Radio Free Skaro.

With Steven special corresponding from Chicago TARDIS, and with The Doctor Who Book Club’s Erik joining the Three Who Rule to offer his trenchant insights on fannish Who goings-on, this episode is chock full of things in the American Mid-West that involve a Doctor Who convention. Such things include an interview with Peter Davison, an RFS first, even if he’s Doctor the Fifth. Of course it wouldn’t be an episode of Radio Free Skaro without the usual news, sardonic analysis and nerdery. Enjoy!

It’s Doctor Who Day! Well. if you’re reading this on November 23rd, 2011, at any rate. But even if you aren’t, the Three Who Rule have a jam-packed show for you with not only a surprisingly packed news list but also an interview with Bill Stanley. Who is this Bill Stanley, you ask? Well, for a sizable number of older North American Whovians, PBS was the only place one could see the good Doctor’s adventures during their formative years, and Bill Stanley was the program director for Spokane PBS affiliate KSPS in the 80s and 90s. His recall of those days has not dimmed one jot, and we were delighted to talk to the man who more than anyone else is responsible for the love of Doctor Who we hold to this day. But that’s not all! We also have….a commentary for the Rebel Flesh. Yup. The Rebel…Flesh. Happy Doctor Who Day, everyone!

Radio Free Skaro #280 – The Devil In The Dark

Radio Free Skaro #280 – Click here to listen!

The dark cloud from last week’s pirate adventure has lifted and The Three Who Rule are able to take solace in blathering over one of the best-received episodes of Doctor Who from this past series. The Doctor’s Wife gets the commentary treatment, and – short story even shorter – it’s just as well-loved this time around as when we first saw it half a year ago. Also, as we start to gear our brains toward conventions such as Chicago TARDIS and Gallifrey One, we sink our teeth into some details about the recently-announced official convention. Does it sound worthwhile?

Well, it had to come to this eventually – a slow news week and a duff episode of Doctor Who to be commented on both occurring on the same episode of Radio Free Skaro. With little in the way of actual news to discuss, the Three Who Rule instead bandied about their mostly positive experiences while playing the new Doctor Who Adventure game, The Gunpowder Plot. And with equally little in the way of actual good Doctor Who, the Three meandered into discussions about Justin Bieber and the films of director Peter Weir. You have been warned.
