    Did an actual fan not work on this cover? That’s the 2005 TARDIS with a St. John’s Ambulance sticker, nothing like Cushing’s TARDIS… dear oh dear…

      The BBC own the copyright to the Police Box, might be something to do with that, there is usually something behind these things.

    Any idea if this will come with a digital download? I’ve preordered both, but I don’t have anything capable of playing the UHD BluRays at the moment – just standard BluRay.

      StudioCanal have ever released discs with downloads. The BDs will feature the new restorations though.

      Would be great to see on the big screen with a good surround sound system.
      Really like these Steel Books also.

      The first time i saw the cushing movies was on the big screen in the 1970s. My dads workplace used to get annual xmas tickets for their families to view asurprise movie. Another local firm used to get tickets for their families, only difference, they used to get to see an exclusive film of the time whereas we got the b pictures. They got a selection box, we got a mars bar. We got daleks one year and invasion of earth a couple of years later. Invasion of earth i preferred of the two. Thought we got a raw deal at the time, in hindsight i think we got the better deal now. Much better on the big screen.

      Never saw the Two Films in the cinema when they came out. First time I watched them was on TV. (Years ago though).

      B movies! Now that’s something I havnt heard anyone talk about for a very long time.
      Can anyone remember when you watched a Film at the pictures you always had to sit through a short film first. Whereas now it’s just Ten minutes of Adverts and Trailers before the main feature.

      Dont forget the double features coleman. You couldnt imagine them doing that now.

      I remember seeing hercules and kung fu followed by the main feature sinbad and the eye of the tiger. Also as doubles saw moonraker followed by for your eyes only. I think the last two me and a friend saw was grease 2 followed by footloose. And im not a fan of musicals. Ive spent some long hours in those old fleapits.

      Daleks invasion was my favourite simply because of Bernard cribbins, sorry Roy castle. Though the scenes with the robomen having their lunch with a disguised bernard was a little silly.

      Only Double feature I remember seeing was the Empire Strikes Back followed by Return of the Jedi at the Gaumont in Doncaster. Saw quite a few of those short films though before the Main feature.
      Remember seeing an Animated short about “Time”, before Jedi.
      Also saw a long Documentary about the Kennedy assassination before a Feature and one about Motorcross Bike racing before another feature. (All very vague as I was quite young).
      Remember some of the Short films being very boring as they usually had nothing in common with the main Film.
      I Bet the Dalek films will look great on the big screen in Colorvision though.
