    Germany is getting a Blu-Ray release of The Seeds of Death which is very strange as there has been no equivalent release in the UK. Could this mean that a Season 6 The Collection boxset is potentially on the way?

    Has anyone else had an issue while watching Behind the Sofa on Mark of the Rani? As Luke goes into the dell my screen froze and I had to hard reboot my player. It played okay when I loaded it up again so it could have been a one off glitch.

      How I wish my Blu Ray player would auto play a sample of “Attack of the Cybermen”‘s music track whenever a disc error occurs haha.

      Yes. Same occurred, had to totally reboot

      Thanks Alzie Who – at least I know it’s not my player. If it’s a widespread fault I wonder if they’ll offer replacement discs?

      Mine was fine too. You might need to do a firmware update if your BR player connects to the internet.

    Is Disc 6 supposed to be “Just” Part One of “The Two Doctors”? Albeit in extended format?

    I was expecting the whole story to be available but mine just plays an extended part one then goes back to the menu.

    Is this how it is supposed to be? Seems a bit disappointing

      You’ll have to watch normal part 2 and 3 on the other disc after watching the extended part 1

    • Gordon

      July 1st, 2022 - 10:49pm

      I’d assume there probably wasn’t the disc space to include the whole thing. I do think it would have worked better if they had put it on the first 2 doctors disc and moved over the making of to the second disc.

      Is it worth watching part one extended? What extra scenes do we get? Is there more of Peri with her top off?

    Been very lucky with this Collection set. It had been thrown over the back garden 6 foot wall onto the patio. It was (unusually) only in a large padded envelope.
    So if it wasn’t damaged in the fall I wondered if it had rained at all and damaged the pack.
    Luckily it was perfect.

      Bloody hell, nice work by hour delivery driver/postman!

      Good grief! Amazing it wasn’t damaged Coleman but pleased for you it’s intact. I’m really lucky with my postie!

      Hope you enjoy the set. Just watched ‘Timelash’ which even the new effects could not begin to save although at least the tinsel is now obscured!

      The interview with Nicola Bryant is an absolute highlight however. So open and honest. Her memories of Dursley McLinden are incredibly moving. It somehow makes the whole period even worse considering how appallingly she was treated. In Richard Marson’s book Nicola relates an incident with Nathan-Turner that is the single most horrible thing I’ve ever heard about to do with ‘Who’. Her strength is so apparent in the interview with Matthew Sweet and it is to her enormous credit she still is so positive about the show.

      On wow, glad your set is ok Coleman.

      I have always got my sets from Amazon and they all know to leave my parcels in the shed safe and sound if I’m not in.

      Mine too was in a slightly padded envelope this time – not the usual wrap box, thankfully perfect condition so happy days.

      Bring on the next set!!

      Thanks Guys. Yes when I saw the padded envelope I feared the worst, I’m glad it hasn’t been raining recently either. Usually comes from Amazon in a strong cardboard box like D84 mentioned.
      Should imagine it’s cost cutting measures.

      Watching the Nicola interview now, very disturbing stories about JNT he clearly wasn’t right

    Although this is by far my least favourite series of ‘Who’, this is still a fantastic set and well worth having! So much to enjoy on the extras.

    The new interview with Colin Baker is lovely and often very moving. So good to hear his experience on the show in the context of his wider career and his life. Matthew Sweet is a wonderful interviewer. Equally the interview with Michael Grade is really interesting, and it is hard not to disagree with some of his views on the series as it was at the time. Having said that, the way the cancellation was handled was disingenuous and unprofessional to say the least.

    At the time, I enjoyed the dark humour and quite contemporaneous themes of ‘Vengeance on Varos’ and ‘Revelation of the Daleks’, but the overall series felt more and more self-indulgent and frequently gratuitously nasty and I didn’t enjoy the rather theatrical persona of the Sixth Doctor so much. The behind the scenes ructions are almost more compelling than the series itself!

      Your right i agreed with a lot of points Grade made, he’s still a slimy toad not unlike Sil, but how was dr Who going to compete with the likes of Star wars on the ever decreasing meagre budget they were given. I think they did rather well considering.

      For the 60s and 70s, I think ‘Who’ did very well often leading the field with a lot of visual effects with no time and a meagre budget. For example ‘The Invisible Enemy’ did some fantastic model work that looked just as good as many film effects. One of the issues was inconsistency, the same story’s Nucleus being an obvious example! Perhaps also the problem was that by the time the 80s rolled around, ‘Who’ began to lag behind as the technology and budgets exponentially increased so the difference between genre film and tv widened.

      Anyway, unlike ‘Star Wars’ and its ilk, ‘Who’ generally had infinitely more imagination and originality (and wit). Television, in my opinion is quite a different medium to film anyway (perhaps less so these days unfortunately) and it has become boring that everything needs to look like an American ‘blockbuster’ to be of worth!

      I agree with you, Philip that often, they did incredibly well considering the resources they were given. It was the scripts that were the main problem and responsible for those were the script editor and producer.

      I preferred it to Trial of a Timelord. The Theatrical Doctor is exactly the problem for me.

      The Robert Holmes interview is over 90 minutes long!

      Fantastic

    Do the extended edits have the option of 5.1 surround sound?

      No they don’t, I haven’t check revelation or two doctors but vengeance of varos extended version doesn’t have 5.1 however the normal broadcast version does plus a 5.1 version of the isolated soundtrack for vengeance
