Greatest Show in The Galaxy DVD

Greatest Show in The Galaxy DVD

Although Ace hates clowns, the Doctor decides to take his companion to the Psychic Circus on the planet Segonax.

There they find a group of scared performers who live in fear of the sinister and creepy Chief Clown.

But what is so dangerous about this particular circus, why is there such a small audience and will Ace be able to overcome her fear before it’s too late?

Due for release on 30 July 2012.

Original VHS cover and details

The TARDIS takes the Doctor and Ace to the planet Segonax, the latest home of the famous Psychic Circus.

But Ace finds the clowns a bit creepy and would much rather stay out in the sun, which may be just as well…

This is no ordinary circus and people come from planets far and wide to audition for the opportunity to take part.

But there’s a darker side to the show – who are the three members of the audience upon whose whims the .performers’ lives depend? And why is the Chief Clown driving a hearse and trying to capture the local youths?

The Doctor decides to investigate further and, while Ace tries to befriend some of the more terrified workers, he realises that the Psychic Circus is really a front for a far older, and deadlier, menace from his past. He and Ace must ward off killer bus conductors, werewolves, *the walking dead and some murderous robot clowns before they can hope to stop an evil from the very dawn of history…

Produced entirely on location, this macabre example of Doctor Who closed the series’ twenty-fifth anniversary and was originally transmitted 14th December 1988 – 4th January 1989

    I got a print of the picture on the cover of this DVD (well, the American version with the blue logo and no roundel design) signed by Daniel Peacock, who played Nord in the story.

    As a big dr who fan, I still couldn’t find dr who – The Krotons in Asda for two weeks now since its release on 2nd July. There were no sign of it in WHSmith OR Sainsburys Supermarket and these stores are from Farnborough Hampshire. I just hope to see it soon as ‘The Greatest Show In The Galaxy’ will be out in two weeks from tomorrow i.e. 16th July 2012. I found the Krotons a couple of weeks ago in Guildford’s HMV and they charge 15 pounds which is an arm and a leg. I definitely going to wait for it to appear in Asda if possible.

      Yes, I noticed my local Asda don’t sell The Krotons. My local HMV are probably selling it for about £16.99. I haven’t checked yet.

      July 15th, 2012 - 10:39pm

      15 quid is not an arm and a leg as the rrp is 19.99. You can get it for 12.99 from play.com http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/31807365/Doctor-Who-Krotons/Product.html?source=9593&_$ja=tsid:11853|prd:95782&awc=1418_1342388039_d9a5f3e4b59c948d16f38b729cb44102
      I preorder from hmv.com normally. cheaper than the shops (round about 13 quid for most releases) and most times arrives on the friday before release.

    Looking forward to this release!
    Anyways I’ve got £35 for Classic Who DVDs, and I’ve decided I’ll get Revisitations 1 because Caves and Talons are so highly rated.
    This means, that because the other single releases are about £7 each, I can get two of them. I want to get the best of Classic Who I haven’t got, which is alot! I have loads of ‘duds’. The trouble is I don’t want to buy stories that will be re-released in Special Editions in the next few years.

    • Gordon

      May 25th, 2012 - 9:03am

      I already knew about all those but i didnt mention it as those are not coming in box sets (or at least havent been announced as such)as the question was about future box sets. Chris chapman who produced the making of said Ambassadors will be coming out in full colour and its the main feature (unlike dinos where colour ep1 was an alternative version). As the bbfc have passed the extras for it just after the varos se extras im expecting ambassadors round about late sep early october(24 sep,1 oct give or take a week or 2).

    • Gordon

      May 25th, 2012 - 9:20am

      The 2 rereleases will be seperate releases going by recent comments from dan hall (no more revisit box sets planned at this time and going more in the direction of seperate rereleases) Inferno will be coming out in 2013. Im happy for it to get rereleased. Restoration methods has come so far since 2006 when it was originally released it should look so much better than the original release. Extras wise im wondering what they could add to that release. Axos i dont really know that much apart from katy manning mentioned it in a tweet.

      From what i read due to quality of the 1″ tapes they arent able to do much to improve ghost light for dvd . Wouldnt mind an ark in space reissue aztecs (picture quality looks poor in comparison to later releases) green death (needs a making of to make all pertwee stories have 1). Even though i dont think we will get 1 silver nemises (add the extended vhs version and the making of that was on the vhs)

    This looks like a good DVD release, though I’m sorry that Sylvester McCoy is not involved in this story (as with Paradise Towers, Dragonfire and Happiness Patrol). I presume he is busy and not available for the commentaries or any interviews any more – which is a shame. And why no continunity announcements any more? Thankfully I’ve kept mine from the original run. And one last gripe, am I the only one getting fed up with the moderators on the DVDs – I know they’re there to help things along, but this misses the chance for other things said.

    • Gordon

      May 9th, 2012 - 11:14am

      The interviews were recorded were recorded august 2011 which would rule sylvester out as he was in NZ. He actually missed the commentary date by only a couple of weeks as it was recorded april 2011. @anonymos i take it you are refering to toby hadoke who mods most of the stories these days. He is more than just a fanboy. He is actually quite well known for his moths ate my doctor who scarf radio play. I dont really see him as giving points of view i see him as steering the com in the right direction.

      May 9th, 2012 - 11:25am

      You could have somebody from the new who as a mod but i doubt they would have the vast ammount of knowledge toby has. He corrects wrong facts and he seems to know about all cast members and every extra and what else they also appeared on. He also helps out if people are struggling to remember things (see barry letts on time monster).

      Yes @doctorwhofan27. @anonomus even if they did make up i cant see them being apart of any commentarys as all their complete stories are already released and None of their stories i would say need revisiting. Out of their early releases (leasure hive, city of death)there really aint that much that could be added to those releases to make a revisit worth doing. If they were to do something together id actually rather they did something for big finish or audio go.

    A fantastic cover for a fantastic story – I cannot wait for this release – though I’m quite sad that it means the end of the McCoy era on DVD. Such good memories of sitting in front of the video player each week taping each episode, getting the creeps at the clowns and that very sinister (yet simple) music score. 25 years ago! With the Krotons and Planet of Giants ending the 1st and 2nd Doctor ‘complete’ dvd runs it really does feel like we are reaching the end of an era.

      May 4th, 2012 - 8:22pm

      It is interesting because had this been a Target cover, we’d been delighted. Whilst I do like computer art, one can persevere and make a fairly reasonable attempt (just look at all the alternative VHS covers there are/used to be on the net) – fans were creating equally good covers as the BBC quite often. But when it comes to paint, it either takes years to master or in many cases, never.

      Pity that nearly every sensible non-caricature image of recent Doctors we see is photographic in origin.

    Cool cover ! Anyone think the VHS cover looks more like your typical 2 Entertain Dr Who DVD cover ? With everything all coloured over ?

    While the DVD for this episode isn’t all coloured over. I hate it when they colour it all over, like on the DVD of Mark and the Rani. Why did they set a transpartent purple all over that image ? WHY ?! ❗

    A true late eighties classic, the Chief Clown is so sinister in this. Love it!

    They’ve missed a trick here: this should be the last classic release!

      Should be in a set with terror of the zygons as 50th anniversary DVD set

      And with the newly found eps and maybe the 10th planet

      No @skaro. box set for those stories would be a bad idea. Reasons:1. box sets get higher budgets but once you split the budget over 2 or 3 stories they actually get less of a budget per story. 2. If the plan is to annimate ep 4 of 10th planet it would have to be a single release to have a budget for animation.3. Some tom fans wont be pleased that zygons is paired with a mcoy story and vise versa. 4. There is nothing to connect the stories other than its the same programe

      Gordon’s right.

      And if it happens it would be awsome

      There both popular

      Both stories are popular is not enough reason to be in abox set. Plus there is no if it happens. it wont. Greatest show has a release date which rules out any chance of it getting rereleased next year. Simply put if they were planning on releasing greatest show with zygons for the 50th aniversary they wouldnt be releasing greatest show this year as they plan about 18 months to 2 years in advance

      Agree with your earlier comment “Gordon” I was livid that Revenge of the Cybermen was saddled with Silver Nemesis. Yes, you get a bit more cardboard, but Revenge of the Cybermen should have been released on its own.

    THIS IS DEFINITELY ONE OF HIS BEST STORIES AND YOU CAN SEE THE DIRECTION ANDREW CARTMEL AND ALL WERE GOING IN TERMS OF ORIGINAL IDEAS.ITS A SHAME THEY WEREN,T A COHESIVE WHOLE. MOST OF HIS FIRST SEASON WAS ATROCIOUS. POOR SYLVESTER.

      I wonder what will happen once 2entertain finishes all the classic doctor dvds….

    • Gordon

      April 30th, 2012 - 9:24pm

      Special edition rereleases, Possibly season boxsets and if they sell enough more animations of lost episodes

    • McGann is the Doctor

      May 3rd, 2012 - 3:13pm

      They will also be making single re-releases of stories that were released before 2[Entertain joined the team, these episodes do not have the logo on the cover.

      Such as, Two Doctors, Pyramids of Mars, Claws of Axos, Ark in Space, and ofcourse Vengeance on Varos.

      Are they rereleasing the whole collection?

    • gordon

      June 3rd, 2012 - 10:43pm

      No. Just ones that need rereleasing ie picture quality needing improved and stories that had poor extras first time round
