New month, new Classic Who DVDs:
First up, a catch-up DVD from the end of last year’s UK release schedule. The six part Seeds of Doom is one of the best loved stories of the Tom Baker era and features some of the best action in the show’s history.
Extras include a commentary, a making-of doc, a featurette about composer Geoffrey Burgon, and another in the line of my favorite Doctor Who DVD extras, Stripped for Action, focusing on the Fourth Doctor’s exploits in comic strip form.
SRP: $34.98 (you’ll find it cheaper on Amazon)
While The Ark is not considered one of Hartnell’s highest points, the extras on the disc are all of stellar quality. Along with the commentary and making-of, we get a piece where Peter Purves (who played companion Steven Taylor) talks to Matthew Sweet about filming at the famed Riverside Studios, and a short doc about why some monsters on the show come back time and again and why some others never got off the ground.
SRP: $24.95 (again, Amazon’s cheaper)
Enjoy these, won’t you?
