Doctor Who celebrates its 57 years through space and time today!
To celebrate the BBC has announced two upcoming Blu Ray releases.
The upcoming releases will see the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary & The Web of Fear Special Edition (with newly animated ‘missing’ Web of Fear episode 3) get the steelbook treatment.
This limited edition steelbook features bespoke artwork (TBC on The Web of Fear) and hours of extra features.
- The Web of Fear is the partly missing fifth serial of the fifth season of Doctor Who, which was first broadcast in six weekly parts from 3 February to 9 March 1968.The serial is set on the London Underground railway over forty years after the 1967 serial The Abominable Snowmen. In the serial, the incorporeal Great Intelligence leads the time traveller the Second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) into a trap where it can drain the Doctor’s mind of all of his knowledge.The Web of Fear marks the first appearance of actor Nicholas Courtney as Colonel Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, subsequently better known as the Brigadier, and acts as a precursor to the numerous later serials involving the UNIT organisation.
