September 2013 North America Doctor Who DVD Releases
|Breaking the trend – unless the initial information proves to be incorrect – of the second Tuesday of the month seeing new Doctor Who DVD releases, September 17th will see two stories prominently featuring animation.
The Ice Warriors, missing two episodes which have been animated for its DVD release, will see the light of day on this side of the Atlantic. The second Patrick Troughton release to feature animation, extras will include audio commentary, the links produced for the VHS release, part 2 of Doctor Who Stories – Frazer Hines and more.
A purely animated story, featuring the second appearance of (the iconic) Richard E Grant as The Doctor, Scream of the Shalka is Paul Cornell’s web-based contribution to the show’s 40th Anniversary. Six (albeit shorter than the usual) episodes comprise this story also featuring contributions from Sir Derek Jacobi and David Tennant before their prominent roles in the revised TV series. Shalka extras will include commentary, making of documentaries and production notes.
MSRP will be $34.98 for The Ice Warriors and $24.98 for Scream of the Shalka. Click on the package art for larger versions. Check TVShowsOnDVD.com for more details!
