Doctor Who – Spearhead from Space – Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook (Limited to 2000) Blu-ray

As punishment for breaking the laws of time, the Time Lords have forced the Doctor to change his appearance, taken away his ability to time travel, and exiled him to Earth…

But as the TARDIS arrives, so does a meteor shower carrying an alien invasion force. Originally shot on 16mm film, this classic Doctor Who story is the first to be upgraded into stunning HD.

    Got this on blu ray so won’t bother.

    Ok so is there any difference, or is it just a pointless buy becuase it’s now in a steel book

    • booboo

      January 28th, 2016 - 7:46pm

      Doubt there will be anything new

      pointless perhaps if you already have it, a nice item if you dont, or if you collect steel books

    Booboo you need to update the Classic series DVD collection

    • booboo

      January 28th, 2016 - 7:44pm

      yes we will, we have got behind with a few things over the last few months, there are a few people around who know why

      we are working on new collectors lists as well although the DVD lists will stay as they are

    the only over Doctor Who shot on film was Doctor Who: The Movie starring Paul McGann

      Most classic episodes were a mix of videotape (studio) and film (location).
      Spearhead was the only classic serial shot entirely on film.
