Re-mastered and re-graded, with a full stereo sound mix by MARK AYRES, this is the first time WARTIME has been made available in digital media.

This classic 1988 drama featured Sergeant Benton from UNIT as he battles both a terrorist threat and ghosts from his past – including his father (played by MICHAEL “Davros” WISHER).

Also featuring the voice of NICHOLAS COURTNEY … and if you look hard you’ll see NICHOLAS “Voice of the Daleks” BRIGGS!

Also available will be an in-depth documentary special feature recounting the history of independent DOCTOR WHO spin-off dramas.

The DVD will also feature a photo gallery plus the first 500 copies will be printed with a reversible inlay – featuring both the new cover artwork by MARTIN BAINES and the original 1988 art by PHIL BEVAN.

A real treat for all Cult TV fans!

      Yep, that’s been announced. There was a licensing issue with the different parties who owned it but it is coming at some point in the future.
