BBC Studios announce release of Season 14 in the Doctor Who: The Collection Blu-Ray range.

Doctor Who fans will be delighted to hear that BBC Studios is releasing Season 14 on Blu-Ray. Tom Baker’s third series as the Doctor will debut on Monday 20th April.

Baker’s most iconic serials, with intrepid investigations in Victorian London, deadly robots in a
murderous whodunit, a return to the Doctor’s homeworld, and one of the saddest goodbyes in Doctor
Who history.

Producer Phillip Hinchliffe led Doctor Who through a creative high, joined by Elisabeth Sladen as
Sarah Jane Smith, Louise Jameson as the Doctor’s captivating new companion Leela and guests
stars Tim Pigott-Smith, Stephen Thorne, Peter Pratt, Pamela Salem, David Collings, Christopher
Benjamin and Trevor Baxter.

    companions Sophie Aldred and Peter Purves.
  • Our Sarah Jane – Elisabeth Sladen Tribute – A feature-length look at the life and career of

  • Whose Doctor Who Revisited – Toby Hadoke meets the producers and grown-up stars of
    the very first Who Documentary.
  • In Conversation – Matthew Sweet chats to producer Philip Hinchcliffe.
  • Blu-Ray trailer – Louise Jameson has trouble with her new home assistant.
  • Brand new interviews

Assasin, played by Peter Pratt. RRP: £56.16

    Having real trouble trying to figure out which broadcast prints from Terror of the Zygons survive (season 13 I know I’m just excited you know). As far as I can tell from the DVD, the prints from part 4 survive completely, the prints from part 1 except for when the TARDIS team is picked up by the duke survive (not sure about the deleted scene, I can’t tell it’s been too processed by the colourisation) part 2 seems to be a real mix, even shot to shot it switches back and forth. And part 3 survives except for a few shots at the beginning and end that were needed to get the miniature monster and space ship in.

    Any one have a decisive list is my question basically?

    I heard a rumor that Iran would have the first two episodes of Marco Polo in one of their archives. It’s true?

      Rumors swirl constantly, take them all with plates full of salt.

      Given the nature of it, we obviously won’t know if it is true or not and likely wouldn’t even have a chance of knowing for decades. The two episodes were sent as examples of the show before the show was sold to Iran, although in the end Marco Polo was never actually offered for sale so those two sample episodes would likely have been stored separately from the rest as they were never intended for broadcast.

      It is certainly considered to be a very real possibility that they are out there, but given the incredibly sensitive political environment in Iran, the BBC have no way of contacting them (they are banned from having any sort of operations within the country) and random internet nerd that thinks they know everything and wants to go all Indiana Jones trying to recover it themselves would likely cause more damage than good. If an opportunity arises they may try but ultimately, its two episodes of an old sci-fi show, not worth starting a world war over it.

    can the choice of episodes to be animated be influenced by the possibility of finding the missing episodes?

    Reply
    • Gordon

      February 1st, 2020 - 11:40pm

      If there is a chance that they have found a completely missing story they may put off or pause an animation. For instance they might be putting off web of fear part 3 as there is a chance that the copy that disappeared might reappear. But what is likely to be found and what actually does turn up are 2 different things. Marco Polo is the story that had 1 of the most copies made but nothing of it exists. Dalek masterplan on the other hand had very little copies made and yet 3 episodes of it exist

      11, 13 and 14 cause they’re all Elisabeth Sladen’s remaining seasons to come out on bluray. I hope on the Our Sarah Jane documentary on Season 14 that we see the cast and crew of the Sarah Jane Adventures remembering her- I miss the bannerman road gang dearly… wish we could have a Sarah-Jane Adventures soundtrack or novelisations…

    • Gordon

      January 30th, 2020 - 9:56pm

      I really couldn’t name 3. There is something I’m looking forward to in nearly every season. Seasons 1-6 as there is a good chance we will get making ofs for a few of the missing stories. Series 7,8,9 and 11 as I’m wanting to see what improvements in colour for the likes of ambassadors/mind and dinos 1 and also improved colour for the ntsc material from the likes of silurians autons sea devils etc. Season 15 as I’ve always wanted a horror of fang rock making of. Season 16 as there probably is a good chance of a Mary Tamm biog. Series 17 as tom hasn’t really contributed to extras to this season (bar shada). Season 21 and 22 as the making ofs for the twin dilemma and two doctors seem like big omissions from the dvd range. Season 24 as there was no making of for delta and there was special features that didn’t fit on the original dvds due to the lack of space. Season 25 as they could include the silver nemesis vhs and potentially a feature length special edition in the lines of battlefield and fenric. Oh and a noir version of the happiness patrol would also be lovely. Can’t forget the wilderness years as there is so much potential there

      17, since it has City of Death, my favorite Who story. Season 7 for inferno and the HD version of Spearhead and to see the improvement made to the visuals for silurians. And Season 13 because it’s just so awesome!

      I am looking forward to a shelf of the complete run, and it would be exciting if the revival would get a similar treatment. Specific seasons I’m really looking forward to are probably 9 (my favorite Pertwee year), 13 (an excellent Tom), 21 (if just to watch Caves over and over), and 5 (the best Troughton year for me)

      February 2nd, 2020 - 5:12am

      While for Capaldi’s titles being fixed would be great. that is how it was broadcast so the out of sync titles will be the ones on the set.

      I wouldn’t mind bit more classic, something black and white. But I also welcome more Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee. But to be honest, I am taking whatever they throw at me. Loving every set so far.

      I’m in the same boat. I’ll buy whatever they release and have been extremely happy with the releases so far. I like the variety and wouldn’t mind a William Hartnell or Patrick Troughton set although ideally the sets would be completed with animations (a far flung dream). If not, maybe they could leave space in the boxes for eventual releases when the missing stories are animated.

    • Gordon

      February 5th, 2020 - 8:32am

      Even if they don’t animate all stories they will probably still have reconstructions of some sort. It will also have extras also so there will be discs for those stories to swap out if need be.

    • Sarge

      January 27th, 2020 - 8:47am

      In my opinion and personal preference I think these are the costumes that would be nice to go on the covers:

      1-Hartnell in his unearthly child outfit with hat and cloak
      2- Hartnell without coat with glasses or his Roman robes
      3-Normal outfit with or without a cowboy hat
      4- Troughton with his hat from power
      5- Troughton in his fur coat
      6- Normal outfit
      7- Pertwee in the black cloak with the dark blue jacket
      8- Pertwee in the orange jacket
      9- Pertwee in the plaid cloak without the jacket visible
      11-Pertwee in the black jacket with red lapel trim
      13-Tom in the pyramids of mars look or the Scottish look
      15- Tom in his grey frock coat
      16-Tom in the brown/ plum coat ? Considering the Scottish look was used for season 13
      17-Tom in the brown frock coat
      20- Hatted Fifth Doctor
      21-Different jumper and longer hair possibly celery missing or “battle damaged”
      22- Normal look with dark purple waist coat
      24- Sylv in the light grey/ tan jacket with the hat
      25- Sylv in the previous costume but without the hat

      season 21 could also have the fifth doctor in his waistcoat from planet of fire…

      January 26th, 2020 - 2:51pm

      Not so sure. They seem keen on filling up the Troughton gaps. With 2 a year they would just be finishing off the Troughton stories. It’s also one of the more expensive and time consuming animations to do. I can see that being left till pretty late on.

    • Kenman

      January 27th, 2020 - 3:31pm

      I know Marco Polo will be expensive, but it would be quite the treat for the 60th. I don’t need a blowout special like the 50th, I just want more animations!

    • Anonymous

      January 30th, 2020 - 11:11pm

      There’s more chance of them comissioning a shot for shot remake like Mission to the Unknown than an animation if anything was going to happen.

      “do you think the 60th will be as big an event as the 50th, I hope it will…”

      Definitely not. I think the 50th was a big milestone, so they really put their hearts into it, but 60th won’t be celebrated like that, I think. I may be wrong (I hope I am).

      But we should have something. I really think they will keep doing multi-doctor stories on those occasions.

    • Gordon

      February 4th, 2020 - 11:09am

      A recreation of Marco Polo would probably cost more than an animated version of it. Especially if done through the bbc. Uclan would probably be too busy to recreate a completely missing story the size and scale of Marco Polo. The cost of hiring a large cast and the directors producers etc for about 3 months on BBC’s time would be very expensive. Think it won’t be as big as the 50th in terms of dvd and blu ray releases. Think we will get season 13 as it’s regarded by most as Toms best season, 7 as i feel its Jon’s best, 25 as it’s the best 80s season that hasn’t been released yet and it’s going to be the 35th anniversary of it and finally season 1 for obvious reasons. As for animations it could be as simple as the highlanders from 1 studio and the underwater menace and web 3 from another studio thus completing the Troughton era if they do happen to continue down the Troughton era it’s probably doable by the 60th. If they are going to give us a special animated release I think masterplan or Marco Polo seems like the 2 obvious suspects. Marco Polo is more fitting but masterplan probably ticks more boxes with those that finance these things especially with Daleks and also if it’s a split release and production from the 2 animation companies

      Personally I’d class it as a wilderness years story, from the perspective of the war doctor. Plus it’s an extra release on the set, I wouldn’t say no to more. I would class the war doctor as wilderness

    • Gordon

      January 26th, 2020 - 2:46pm

      Doubt things like animated dark dimensions and big finish animations will be included as the 2 teams that are working on animations are kind of busy filling in the missing episodes gaps. Dimensions has a price tag for 60 thousand quid for usage from children in need. Doubt the budget will stretch to have it included. Day doesn’t fit narrative wise to be included in a wilderness years set. Plus it doesn’t make sense including it twice if they plan to add the new series to the collection range. I also doubt realtime productions agree to include full length versions of their stories. It would cannibalise sales of their own products. They might ok clips though.

      This is what I’d include

      Disc 1: 1990-95

      I am really hopeful that after 30 years and the fact that no one would actually buy a set purely for it, that Dimensions in Time can get released properly. It is awful, but a behind the sofa for it would be hilarious. One can only hope that for the (likely) final physical media release, they can make that happen.

      Curse of the Fatal Death deserves a release as well. For this final, definitive, box set covering the Wilderness Years, these fee essential.

      The Face of Evil- 7/10

    Are there any chances that The Power of the Daleks will be found in the future? Even the first episode would be enough for me. Sorry for the huge off-topic but I can’t find information online.

      It’s unlikely to be found. We live in hope but don’t expect things to be found. The rate of discoveries has diminished in line with the passing of the years.
      This is what I mean by that. By the way this was originally posted in response to a post on the animated DVD sections.
      Someone says they haven’t bought the animated episodes as they know that one day they will all be found. I feel the need to inject a touch of reality to the missing episodes. In the last 20 years 12 episodes have been found. Now roughly 28 were found in the previous 20 years. There are 97 remaining missing episodes. In forty years forty have been found, so averaging one a year it could take at least 97 years to find the rest! And remember in the first two decades of the 2000’s less than half have been found compared to the 80’s and 90’s. Well, feel free to do the maths. I’d love them all to be found, but it really is unlikely. Hope is a wonderful thing, but you have to accept that not all of the episodes will be recovered. It was a joy to watch enemy of the world and the web of fear, but animation is very probably the only way we can “see” many of the missing episodes now. It’s sad, but at least we have the soundtracks, many fans don’t appreciate that thanks to those recordings there are no completely missing episodes. Can you imagine what it would be like if all we had from certain stories was photos and people’s memories? As who fans we should be thankful for what we have – we can experience every single episode, hear hartnell and troughton’s performances. Be happy for there could have been an awful lot of gaps in our who collections!

      Technically episode 3 of Web of fear was stolen away from Phil Morris and a man at the BBC previously claims he’s seen 2 episodes in the possession of a private collector unwilling to part with them or share them due to some hangup about owning and enjoying something that no one else in the world has…but maybe one day will loan them to the BBC if he feels like it lol. So we might get 3 more at least. Making it 94

      It’s long been said that they could be Masterplan ep 4 and tenth planet 4. Both these episodes were lent to blue peter who never returned them. Me personally I’m hoping evil of the daleks final episode is one of them but I doubt it.

      I expect the 1st Doctor will be holding onto each side of his jacket with his hands as is a familiar pose for him -maybe for Season 2. Whereas in 1 he could indeed have his walking stick but wearing his hat and scarf too from the very first episode.

      The others you have listed could indeed happen.

      A yeti sphere for S5
      A little mind’s eye crystal (Snakedance) for S20 and a vial of bat’s milk for S21.

      Season 4 could easliy do a multiple doctor image if in the background they had a mirror with the image of the First Doctor from Tenth Planet behind Patrick Troughton. Season 21 would be more difficult as there isnt a 5th/6th image reveal like it.

      Mr Martin Snowden. I like idea of the mirror. But would do Troughton on front holding it. Then on back cover view from behind him with Hartnell’s reflection in the mirror.

      Or even just the mirror on back cover with Hartnell’s face.

      Since there are the optional effects for most stories albeit Snakedance and the Kings Demons. Wouldn,t it be a good idea to Update ‘The Five Doctors’ effects for the season 20 release. I was never that thrilled with those swirly watery things that collects the Doctors and his companions from The Special Edition DVD also i would like them to include the alternative transmitted 4 part version?

    • Tim M

      January 19th, 2020 - 2:20pm

      In reply to Philip Shaw, I would like to think ‘The Space Pirates’ could be animated in the near future. It’s not a highly regarded story, but animation might ironically make it more enjoyable. It would certainly then complete Season Six.

    • DPHill

      January 19th, 2020 - 3:36pm

      Given the amount of versions (ie all of the versions) coming up on season 26, i dont think you need to worry about them not including something as looked forward to as both broadcast, extended and four-part editions; may seem more unlikely for an updated effects story though, but it would be nice (maybe they’ll release the five doctors as its own twentieth anniversary set!!!! Haha, that would be silly though)

    • The Ergon

      January 19th, 2020 - 5:44pm

      Would most likely be The Kings Demons if any i would guess, as its only two parts and would match Similar effects used for ‘Planet of fire’ for Kamelions transformations. The effects, though dated for Snakedance are fine, and the snake effect was an improvement on ‘Kinda’ at least.

      I was surprised Season 26 is 7 discs when there is only 4 stories. Watched an unboxing on YouTube yesterday. But makes sense with the various versions of the episodes and the new features. Can’t wait to watch it.

      I wonder if next years 4th Doctor release will be Season 16 (Key To Time) rather than 17. So there’s a bit of variety. I don’t expect Season 12 until his final release with that one being highly regarded and to go out with a bang.

      January 18th, 2020 - 11:21am

      I’ve not had problems with the glue, so far. I don’t think that the b&w seasons will be much different – a story per disc but without the additional VAM discs of the colour sets; all VAM being distributed about the story discs, accommodated by the smaller space requirements of the b&w episodes. So only 9 discs for seasons, 2, 3 (M2U with TDM) and 4, one more than seasons 14, 18, and 19.

That doesn’t stop the story from being superbly written acted and lit though, it’s one of my absolute favourites, but we mustn’t be blind to it’s faults and accept they are a product of their time, like the special effects or the standard definition cameras.

      Well they’ve added new the opinionals, special effects and changed the standard definition cameras. Up scaling is technically changing. There’s always the dvds which show Classic Who in the proper way to be enjoyed in SD. Let’s make a different cut of the episode without the racism and a cut with.

    • Gordon

      January 16th, 2020 - 5:24pm

      except classic who on sd is extremely compressed. There is a lot less compression on the blu rays and is a lot closer to the existing masters in the archives. Cutting out the racism would mean cutting out John Bennett who was in yellow face. Taking him out would make the whole thing fall apart. It just wouldn’t work

    • GeordieW

      January 17th, 2020 - 11:20am

      I’m with Gordon on this one for a few reasons, it would be silly to cut out John Bennett and to roto/CGI in a different actor would be prohibitively expensive. And I don’t think it’s very sensitive or appropriate to remove the racism to be honest, let it stand, let people see what it is and understand that it is a product of it’s time, like the SD cameras and the fluffy rat.
      The same would go with the black face in The Crusade and so on.

      I think that might have been canned. In release order – 19, 18 and 10 all had artwork extending beyond the “pouch” into the inner spine of the case – 23 had this in the initial promo image that was released, but the finished product did not. 26 and 14 don’t have it at all. Possibly cost cutting?

      Think when Season 12 is re-released we will find out for sure if the vortex doesn’t extend past the booklet pouch.

      A shame though as I like that extra detail on the previous sets.

      Unless that is done on Season 12 to differentiate from the original release of course.

      He is looking skinnier now.

      Obviously I want him to go on to 100 or more.
      But I do hope they are filming anything for Seasons 13, 15, 16 and 17 where he is needed in advance now. Even the ‘On the Sofa’ bits.

    Just wanted to ask, why do people specifically mention Zoom? Is there an advantage over Amazon & Zavvi? The price looks the same though I do notice 10% off for signing up to the newsletter…

      My season 23 arrived with the disc tray ripping off from zoom and when I got a replacement 2 months later the entire disc tray arrived ripped off anyway, and they still haven’t got back to me on that even though I sent pictures…

      Yeah the season 23 delivery was a bit problematic. That was the first and only time I’ve had a problem with them and the way I see it Royal Mail lost it rather than zoom didn’t send it to me. They have always been very good up to that point with me with sending things early so am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. However If it continues to be a problem I will change my supplier

      Amazon have delivery infrastructure in place to ensure the product arrives on day of release. And not before.

      Zoom doesnt, so relies on dispatching earlier via Royal Mail, so some people will get it early,
      (Eg if zoom dispatch on Friday, some may get us Saturday)

    • dazzleshell

      January 15th, 2020 - 2:23pm

      I’ve had no issues with Zoom and for me I prefer their packaging so item isn’t dinted/damaged on delivery.

      And all except Season 23 arrived before release day.

      Amazon seem to care less these days in my experience. So any bulkier items (Books etc) seem to get damaged in transit as incorrect sized packaging used so items is bumped about inside parcel. So I don’t trust them with these sets where the packaging is the limited.

      “The original cliffhanger to part three, consisting of a shot of the Doctor’s head being forcibly held under water, was only ever seen on the first transmission. Following a complaint by the National Viewers’ and Listeners’ Association, the ending was trimmed down to reduce what was thought to be an unreasonably traumatic moment for younger viewers. No broadcast quality copy of the original version exists, but off-air video recordings were made on U-matic by BBC Enterprises and on Philips 1500 by Ian Levine, which he later dubbed to U-matic. Copies of both of these U-matic tapes have been used to restore the ending to its former glory, by combing the two to help reduce noise. Approximately six seconds was missing from the end of the episode (of which approximately half was a freeze frame) and none of this exists in the recap at the start of episode four. There is also soundtrack with unique music cues in the missing section, which provided Mark Ayres with a challenging job. By very careful matching of positioning and grading, Peter Crocker was able to simply cut the off-air recording back onto the end of the master and when combined with Mark Ayres’ audio restoration, the join is almost imperceptible.”

      They’ll probably re-grade the colour. A pity they don’t include any information in the booklets or a short feature on the discs about the work that goes into these sets.

    I had a quick look through my DVDs for season 14 and then at the restoration team website but I don’t think any negatives or prints of the 16mm film sequences survive from this season. Which is a shame but ah well, they will still look nicer.

      See if they waited a couple of years. They could have digitally recreated them from the footage they had. Well upscale it. There’s some stuff I seen on YouTube, where they upscale old SD footage but it looks like film so…

      Ignore the pedantic comments of December 2020, IF this is delayed it will be 1 month, just like all the others. It should be noted that everyone had a March 2020 release date on this and it’s actually now April so could be a sign that BBC distribution are learning their lessons.

      Or they made a new year resolution to release things on time. Or at least announce a date they can actually make.

      But don’t forget season 10 landed on time so there is also a small chance of it coming out on time. I’m never critical of the delays as with most things that get delayed it’s done for the right reasons even though we are never privy to them. They never go out of their way to deliberately delay things. It’s the last thing they want. I definitely don’t blame those that work on these as they are given extremely strict deadlines to get things done.
