‘Ace Adventures’ DVD Box Set Release

articleimageTV_016BBC Worldwide (formerly 2|entertain) have distributed the details and DVD cover of the upcoming release of the box set centred around every Whovian’s favourite Dorothy (McShane, that is!), entitled Ace Adventures.
The box set, reported a year ago by DWF, comprises Ace’s first story in 1987’s 3-part serial ‘Dragonfire’ (also the departing story for Mel, played by Bonnie Langford), and 1988’s 4-part serial ‘The Happiness Patrol’.
In the classic-era stories Dragonfire and The Happiness Patrol, Ace joins the Seventh Doctor aboard the TARDIS and is soon battling a biomechanoid and liberating a world where just feeling sad can get you shot!

On the planet Svartos, the Doctor and Mel unexpectedly encounter an old friend – Sabalom Glitz. Joined by Ace, a teenage waitress with a love for explosives, the group ventures off to find the fabled Dragonfire treasure.
