      It’s the only one of the dozen or so direct to video spin-offs from BBV & Reeltime that hasn’t been re-released on DVD, but given that Wartime and Downtime only saw a DVD release in 2015 there’s still hope.

      I thought it was very entertaining and well worth the money. Twenty years later I’d gladly pay for it again on DVD. It was novelised by writer Terrance Dicks as the middle third of one of the ongoing seventh Doctor novels, and was released a year or so ago as simply ‘Shakedown’.

      to clarify my post, the novel was re-released, not the video.
