The Doctors Revisited series on BBC America has been a great way to introduce NuWho viewers to the different characterizations of The Doctor as well as giving them a glimpse into the Classic Series; the DVD releases of these episodes conclude on December 3 when the third volume hits store shelves.

Along with the documentaries highlighting each of the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctors, the set will include the new series episodes Bad Wolf and The Parting of the Ways for Eccleston’s Doctor, The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End for Tennant’s Doctor and lastly The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon for soon-to-be-departed Matt Smith’s Doctor.

A week later, on December 10, folks on this side of the Atlantic can also lay their hands on the upcoming 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor. The Blu-Ray version will be an all-encompassing Blu-Ray/DVD/3D Blu-Ray release, making it a pretty cool value if you can actually view it in 3D. Doctor Who Explained, previously referenced on Radio Free Skaro, will be included as a bonus; other extras have yet to be announced, though scuttlebutt says An Adventure in Time and Space may be amongst those final extras.

MSRP for the 3-disc The Doctors Revisited: 9-11 will be $39.98; The Day of the Doctor will have an MSRP of $24.98 for the DVD release and $29.98 for the Blu-Ray release.

Fear Her is a story not well beloved by most Who fans (one RFS host being the notable exception), but Life on Mars is near universally praised. Since both were written by Matthew Graham, the writer of this week’s “The Rebel Flesh,” the Three Who Rule didn’t know what to expect as they sat down to view this latest adventure of the Doctor and his companions. What did the Three Who Rule think of Graham’s apology for Fear Her? You’ll just have to listen to find out!

In one of most keenly anticipated Doctor Who episodes in some time, legendary fantasy writer Neil Gaiman finally got the keys to the TARDIS and presented us with a gloriously affectionate love letter to Doctor Who, the series that he has adored since before time itself. The Doctor’s Wife was one of the more unique stories ever presented, yet its heart (or hearts) was in the right place. What did The Three Who Rule think, you may well ask? Listen in to find out…

The Three Who Rule delved into the distant past via the works of Brian Hayles, creator of the Ice Warriors, Luddite, and gentleman scholar, in what will likely be the last Miniscope for quite some time. Of course it wouldn’t be RFS without the latest news, analysis, and off-color banter about Rory in a Roman outfit, all of which were copiously present.
