In this episode of Video Free Skaro, we visit Fan Expo Vancouver and interview Jeremy Bulloch, aka Hal the Archer and Tor from the Space Museum….and he may also have played the part of Boba Fett. We also profile the Borad, one of Doctor Who’s crappiest villains, and give you the latest happenings in the world of Doctor Who.
|Two new classic Doctor Who DVD releases have been announced for North America in July, featuring the last complete Patrick Troughton story from 1969 and Jon Pertwee’s final Dalek story from 1974.
Season 6’s The Krotons is one of only six complete Patrick Troughton stories known to exist. While not looked at fondly by many fans, it does feature the Who debuts of writer Robert Holmes and actor Philip Madoc. The extra features on the DVD release are anchored by the keenly anticipated documentary “Second Time Around: The Troughton Years”, a 52-minute retrospective of the Second Doctor era, produced by Ed Stradling.
Smack dab in the middle of Season 11 is Death to the Daleks, which sees the Third Doctor meeting the Daleks for the last time, and Sarah Jane Smith encountering them for the very first time. A unique element of the production of this story is that a large amount of behind-the-scenes studio footage exists, and it is this footage that forms the basis of much of the extra features on the DVD.
Both releases, coming to store shelves on July 10, will each be single disc sets and carry an MSRP of $24.98. More details about these releases can be found at TVShowsOnDVD.com.
Update: Full cover art for both releases is now available. Click on the artwork for either of these titles for a larger version.

|The Three Who Rule enjoy another slow news week with excess meanderings, needlessly extending the length of this week’s instalment… however a slow news week coupled with a Classic Series commentary is a good thing. The lads turn their gaze to talking over the *cough* David Agnew *cough* masterpiece City of Death, heralded by Doctor Who fans as one of the best stories of our beloved show. Or at least as the highlight of Season 17. Ribald jokes and insightful analyses are paired like a meal with a fine French wine as we wander the streets of Paris.|
– The Daleks…Will Return!
