—–Already available overseas, this is coming to North America for the first time! Build up your Doctor Who archive with this collectors’ set that includes these stories: DESTINY OF THE DALEKS, CITY OF DEATH, THE CREATURE FROM THE PIT, NIGHTMARE OF EDEN, THE HORNS OF NIMON, and SHADA, with all episodes newly remastered from the best available sources. The penultimate season for Tom Baker’s Fourth Doctor, with a full season of Lalla Ward as Romana, is the next release to come to Blu-ray! In 1979, Tom Baker’s Doctor was in full flight. With Douglas Adams (The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy) as script editor, the series leaned into Baker’s penchant for humor, and paired his Doctor with a regenerated Romana (Lalla Ward) as his traveling companion. Together, they would form one of the most popular Doctor/companion duos of all time. Although the season was crippled behind-the-scenes by strike action (resulting in the season finale being abandoned part-way through production), it remains a beloved slice of Doctor Who history that features the return of Davros and the Daleks, and one of the all-time classic stories: Douglas Adams’ own City Of Death. 7-disc set.
NOTE: this title was originally announced for North American release on April 19th, then delayed until May 10th. Now the studio has rescheduled it again, THIS time making it earlier than even the original date! Look for it on April 5th.
