Doctor Who: Nightmare Of Eden DVD

Doctor Who: Nightmare Of Eden DVD

Due for release on 02 April 2012.

Two spacecraft fuse in a hyperspace collision, and with the dimensional instabilities threatening everyone aboard, it’s fortunate the Doctor (Tom Baker), Romana (Lalla Ward) and K-9 arrive to help.

But when a crewmember is found clawed by a ferocious creature, it seems there’s something even more frightening stalking the corridors.

But what can this have to do with a zoologist, Professor Tryst, his CET projection machine, and a planet called Eden?

Special features…

      But have decided to give the 5th Doctor a break for a while, have seen all the stories from Earthshock to the Five Doctors.

      I really want to watch Nightmare of Eden on DVD now, but should wait for it to come down in price. 🙁 ………………

    My 12th birthday is 09 april but I am not getting this. I am getting
    1. ‘Talons of Weng Chiang’
    2. ‘The Seeds of Death’
    3. ‘The Caves of Androzani’
    4. ‘The Robots of Death’
    5. ‘The Three Doctors
    All are the original releases.

      🙁 but you could easily get Robots of death the Three Doctor the Caves of Adrozahni from the Revisitations 1 + 3 sets, which are available now !

      You’re choice, but the DVDs of Three Doctors and Robots of Death in particular are rubbish, it won’t be as good.

      You should atleast get DVDS of stories which aren’t otherwise being rereleased !

      It’s your choice but this would be unwise. ❗

      March 14th, 2012 - 7:40pm

      but thats the thing. I dont want the new ones as there totally different to the original ones. I also like the original because of the fact that its called a SPECIAL EDITION!

    • McGann is The Doctor.

      March 18th, 2012 - 8:03pm

      Oh right, well, suit yourself. It’s pretty easy to find the old ones, people are putting them up for sale mega-cheap because they are getting the Revisitations box sets.

      Well you live up to your name “Doctor Who DVD Collector”. I too collect every version of DVDs. I would never get rid of the first versions. I never watch any extra features. Where time is short, I would rather just get on with watching another story than watch the extra features.

    I might be getting this and the daemons for my birthday. Anyway for next year I would like to
    see:
    Paranormal Activity boxset:
    1a)Ambassadors of Death
    1b)Mind of Evil
    2)The Tenth Planet
    3)The Ice Warriors
    4)Terror of the Zygons
    5)Lost in Time (remake)

      I think there is a good possibility we will get ambassadors this year. Peter crocker who deals with visual restoration said on the galifrey base forum on the 5th of february:Work recommences on “The Ambassadors of Death” tomorrow, with a target completion date of early March. Providing nothing goes wrong it should be finished round about any day now. As everything else except artwork has been done for it i would say there is a good chance of release this year butif it does it wont come out till at least about august time at the earliest.

    • Doctor Who DVD Collector

      March 12th, 2012 - 3:17pm

      That might not be true. I dont think that it would be coming out this year because we already know what DVD releases there are going to be.

    • gordon

      March 13th, 2012 - 6:56pm

      I never said it was true. Only said it was a possibility that we might get it this year . We know roughly what we are getting but we dont the final list yet. We know the exact release date of the first 6 months of the year but the releases of the 2nd Half of the year have yet to go up for preorder.There might a suprise knowing 2e in the past ie the suprise appearance last year of colony in space and in 2010 seeds of doom. Just because something is listed as coming out in a certain year doesnt mean it will be. Plans change.

    • gordon

      March 13th, 2012 - 7:00pm

      Look at ambassadors (originally scheduled 2011) and zygons (stated as a 2012 release despite the fact it wasnt) as 2 examples

    • McGann is the Doctor

      March 14th, 2012 - 2:02pm

      If you want DVD information the interview in DWM 444 is well worth a read.

      It’s near the start.

      It came out in October 2012!

  • McGann is the Doctor.

    February 28th, 2012 - 12:21pm

    Point at me and say I’m mad, but out of the Face of Evil, the Daemons, and this, I think THIS is the one I’m going to buy first.

    Why ? Because the last time I watched Tom Baker it was the whole Key to time season (instead of the Pirate planet I watched the linking story, Ferrils Folly, bigfinish), and the creature from the pit.

    So this would be a good continuation before I watch Meglos and Espace trilogy. 😀 Had this all planned in advance, 😉

      Or will they be animated???

    • booboo

      February 17th, 2012 - 7:17pm

      there were full episodes plus many bits from the other episodes including a lot of the end so the could animate the missing parts

    • Gordon

      February 17th, 2012 - 10:37pm

      Shada will be getting a dvd release later this year in a legacy box set with more than 30 years in the tardis. Its not getting animated. Ian levine did do animation of it with the purpose of selling it to 2e but it fell through for an unknown reason

    • booboo

      February 17th, 2012 - 10:39pm

      that’s a shame

    • Romana2rules

      February 18th, 2012 - 8:02am

      Will they just leave bits out or will it be audio like the moonbase in the lost in time boxset !!!

    • booboo

      February 18th, 2012 - 9:36am

      there is no original audio of the missing bits as they were never filmed. Tom Baker narrated the gaps on the VHS release

    • Gordon

      February 18th, 2012 - 9:49am

      Its that vhs version that is getting released.

      February 28th, 2012 - 12:22pm

      We will see. But we do know it’s being released in a set “The legaxy boxset” and the Documentary 30 years of Dr Who will be included. ❗

  • McGann is the Doctor.

    February 6th, 2012 - 9:15am

    I need to get this story on DVD !

    BTW, I am glad it’s out, because I thought the Nightmar of Eden would be released at the end of the year with Shada on DVD boxset :/ Since they are both the same year. ❗

      February 10th, 2012 - 9:51am

      Well as you can see, there was something else that was mentioned.

      I’m nto dissapointed or anything, infact I’m glad one of my awaited stories is available to buy in just a month ❗

      I will ahve to stop spending on other things, and then I’ll have enough to get all the stories I still need to get. 😉

    • King of the Tenza

      February 6th, 2012 - 12:55pm

      Now that you mentioned that, they terrified me too, thinking they will come out of the cupboard singing Tick Tock Goes the Clock and saying ” Don’t run away. We just want to play!” But they are awesome now, DW never scares me except the Flood. I like Tenza now, Tenzas are cool!! 🙂 🙂

    • Bow tie of Doom (Mood fit woo eb)

      February 6th, 2012 - 3:47pm

      Tenzas are cool!
      Another scariest monster though is The Weeping Angels. They were scary in Blink but they kind of lost their touch (no pun intended) in The Time Of Angels/Flesh And Stone. They were good in Touched By An Angel though and I can’t wait to see (or read) what tricks (no pun intended) they’ll throw at us in Magic Of The Angels! 😀

    • King of the Tenza

      February 6th, 2012 - 4:40pm

      Nah, I think the Weeping Angels are not scary. I just think the Flood are scary! What did you think of them???

    • Bow tie of Doom (Mood fit woo eb)

      February 6th, 2012 - 4:52pm

      They were alright but not that scary. The Flood monsters looked creepy though I’ll say that and the atmosphere and music was creepy. The Waters Of Mars is my favourite out of The Special series though!

      When it comes to Doctor Who Asda are always good in terms of prices. Hope you find it! I still need to watch it but it looks good. The Sensorites is quite cheap in Asda too. £13.97 I believe. Hope to get that one too one day!

      wow that is cheap for the sensorites, i was in smiths the over day looking for unit files which wasnt there and they had the sensorites for 17.99, im glad i didnt get it now i know its cheaper somewhere else, i also want to get the ACE adventures when it comes out along with the nightmare of eden.

    Horror of Fang Rock
    The Hand of Fear
    Remembrance of the Daleks

    And a few episodes with Sea devils! 🙂

    Plus, can someone tell me all the episodes with Silurians/ Sea Devils?

    Can someone tell me 2 great episodes from each doctor (1st to 7th)?

      Don’t bother! Just buy the lot & start from the beginning with the 1st. Doctor like I did. That way you can catch up on all the references made over the last few years & enjoy it all from the original daleks as they progress through the years as well as everything else…

    • King of the Tenza (Previously King of the Cybermen)

      February 5th, 2012 - 4:27pm

      Yes, but I have seen the 1st Doctor’s An Unearthly Child, and I SERIOUSLY didn’t like him!

    • Bow tie of Doom (Previously The Wooden Prince)

      February 5th, 2012 - 4:30pm

      The Silurian and Sea Devil stories are all in a boxset called Beneath The Surface. They were the first I got so I’m not really watching the classics in order that much. I’d also recommend Day Of The Daleks.

    • Bow tie of Doom (Previously The Wooden Prince)

      February 5th, 2012 - 4:32pm

      The First Doctor does get better according to many Whovians. I’ve only seen An Unearthly Child (I do have The Beginning boxset but I need to watch the others) too but I trust what Whovians say!

      Jon Pertwee (Third Doctor) is my favourite Doctor and Peter Davison (Fifth Doctor) is my fourth favourite! I suggest you watch the clasic Silurian/Sea Devil stories. They’re the first classic stories I properly watched and I loved them. The Hand Of Fear (Sarah Janes last classic story) is another great one.

    • Bow tie of Doom (Previously The Wooden Prince)

      February 2nd, 2012 - 7:01pm

      Horror Of Fang Rock is another amazing story. For something made in the late 70’s it looks great and the atmosphere is chilling and the tone is very dark. A must see! 🙂

    • matparks08

      February 2nd, 2012 - 7:15pm

      Remembrance of the daleks is a good one for new viewers I think, a good story with great acting from regulars and guests. It has a few surprises and twists, and also has links to the beginnings of Doctor Who. It may not be the very best but a good start

      1. Destiny Of The Daleks
      2. The City Of Death
      3. The Robots Of Death
      4. The Revenge Of The Cybermen
      5. The Invasion Of Time

      i think these are all good stories a new viewer to classic episodes would enjoy 😀

    After watching the Key to Time series on VHS, I wanted to see this story, since there was no DVD (yet. 😉 ) I bought and read the book.

    I can tell you now, this is a story I really like.

    Wonder if the episode will be as good as the novel so far, the Novel so far is sometimes quite actioney, with chase scenes down corridors, and elevators, and dark, shadowed figures knocking out the main characters, and being chased, and mysteries being solved. 😀 ❗

    I will have to get this DVD as soon as ❗

My opinion is that the season that includes the magnificent City of Death is damaged by 4 other stories that can’t even touch it.
