Revisitations 3 DVD Box Set

Doctor Who’s DVD producers 2|entertain have now revealed what the contents of the much-anticipated Revisitations 3 DVD box set. The box set will contain the three classic stories, ‘Tomb of the Cybermen’, ‘The Three Doctors’, and ‘The Robots of Death’ (FYI the covers shown are NOT the revisitations versions but the original DVD release covers).

For those who aren’t familiar with the Revisitations box sets, the premise is that 2|entertain are taking three classic Doctor Who titles that have already been released on DVD (but quite a few years ago) and updating them with much more bonus features and better picture and sound quality than the original DVD release.

‘Tomb of the Cybermen’ DVD_TombOfCybermen
In this 1967 Second Doctor story, once thought to be lost forever, the TARDIS arrives on the planet Telos where an Earth archaeological expedition, led by Professor Parry, is attempting to uncover the lost tombs of the Cybermen. The story by Kit Pedler and Gerry Davis is the earliest surviving complete story with the Second Doctor. Joining Patrick Troughton in the cast are Frazer Hines as Jamie, Deborah Watling as Victoria, George Roubicek as Captain Hopper, George Pastell as Eric Klieg, Clive Merrison as Jim Callum, Cyril Shaps as John Viner, Shirley Cooklin as Kaftan and Roy Stewart as Toberman.
The story has now been through the VidFire process designed to restore the look of the print to its original condition.
