Available to order from

Also available to order from

This release includes all 5 surviving episodes, plus a brand new fully animated reconstruction of the missing 6th episode created from the surviving audio-only recordings.

In order to escape an attack in space, the TARDIS makes an unscheduled landing and ends up deep inside the London Underground. Here the travellers soon find themselves engulfed in a thrilling battle with the Great Intelligence and the Yeti, a deadly enemy set to invade the Earth. But as events take a turn for the worse, it becomes clear that the golden prize is not just the Earth, but the Doctor’s mind too…

    So do we think that the next issue of DWM will have some news regarding the release date of this and season 24?

    • Gordon

      Season 24 quite possibly. Web of fear I expect they will reveal the cover extras and date all at the same time via press release so probably not

    Anyone heard of a release date for this title yet?
    Any news on Evil of the Daleks OR the Abominable Snowman?

      Not yet for evil of the Dale’s or abominable snowmen

      Web of fear shouldn’t be too far away as it’s only 1 episode needing animated. Evil and abominable still haven’t been confirmed by the bbc

    Zoom earlier today cancelled my order that I placed on the 23rd Nov. And gave me a full refund.

    With this and the season 24 Blur Ray, I’m wondering if they are having supply problems?

      They are either closing or merging so they are cancelling / not listing everything due after the end of March

  • Gordon

    February 4th, 2021 - 12:37pm

    And that’s my steelbook been cancelled. Hmv it is

      Just received a cancellation of the DVD from Zoom.

    Paul vanesis and Peter Crocker did a zoom interview for fantom events. A question about any additional restoration for the web of fear special edition (I asked).
    There will be some additional restoration work to the surviving episodes. There won’t be a night and day difference but there will be improvements especially with better encodes on Blu-ray. It was also mentioned that the commentary for the 5 surviving episodes has been completed and will include 11 different people as well as Toby hadoke moderating. The haven’t done the commentary for ep3 as they are waiting for the animation to be finished before doing it

      I wonder if the commentary for episode 3 will have just the animators commentating on it

    • Gordon

      February 4th, 2021 - 12:27pm

      Could possibly be.

    • Luck4UNow

      I wonder if this restoration and better encodes on surviving episodes of Web will give us a preview into what The Collection 60s Who-Rays will look like once they get to Seasons 1-6.

      Oh my giddy aunt, I can’t wait.

    • booboo

      February 3rd, 2021 - 6:23pm

      Closing or merging, zoom are not talking other than from script

      Interesting mine is still listed as pre ordered but have ordered with Amazon as it appears from what others are saying it has indeed been pulled from there schedule but I should imagine that season 8 collection will be ok hopefully.

  • James

    February 3rd, 2021 - 5:29pm

    Just had an email from Zoom. They ha e had to cancel my preorder for WebOfFear steel book due to unforeseen circumstances. Hopefully season 8 isn’t delayed.

    • Bobby

      February 3rd, 2021 - 5:33pm

      Same. Wonder if it’s just the steelbook that’s affected

    • booboo

      February 3rd, 2021 - 5:36pm

      probably for now as its clear that probably wont arrive in March

    • James

      February 3rd, 2021 - 5:49pm

      BOBBY. They had already removed the dvd and standard Blu Ray versions last week.

    • booboo

      February 3rd, 2021 - 5:50pm

    Hi, I recently uploaded a video in which I discuss the situation of the web of fear dvd and its cancellation on zoom.
    Philip Morris commented. Does anyone know if it’s really him or someone who wants to troll?
    Obviously this message is not
    absolutely written to spam my video, just want to know if the real phil morris commented, thanks

      It does sound like 1 of his comments but I’ve stopped paying much attention to what he says as he says 1 thing 1 day and something completely different the next. He’s already back-pedalled the “you may think that but I couldn’t possibly comment” by saying today the zoom removal is “ Probably some kind of clerical error..nothing to see here”

    • Error_404

      Oh interesting, thank you very much!

    Hopefully we will find out more information about this release soon. I’m itching to find out more about it and the releases after it. It’s been well over a year since the last animation was officially confirmed by the bbc that wasn’t a special edition.

      Head over to the missing episodes proboards forum. Two days ago, PM tweeted “a good day at the office” and an image of the contents of a 16mm film can; needless so say, it has sparked a few rumours…

    • Gordon

      January 31st, 2021 - 5:51pm

      It may have been posted there 2 days ago but That wasn’t 2 days ago when Philip posted that on twitter. Look at the original date of that tweet. It was 27th of July. The animation has been announced since then

    Anyone know if Lee Binding is doing the artwork for the steelbook as well as the regular DVD/Blu-ray?

    • Gordon

      January 21st, 2021 - 8:42am

      He’s doing a cover. Whether or not it’s the dvd steelbook or both is unclear. I’m sure things will be clearer when the cover, contents and release date will get announced

    I think it’d be really nice if this game with The Snowmen following on from how the Macra Terror had Gridlock and it’s special features 🙂 would just be a nice touch

      Depends on what else is on the bonus disc. There might not be space
