The day has finally come. The one I have been waiting for since the movie aired way back in May of 1996.
North American fans can now get a (legal or region 1) copy of Doctor Who: The Movie on DVD. I for one am excited to revisit this classic story and finally have access to all of the extras included on the discs.
The story has always held a special place in my heart. It was the first time I had hope that Doctor Who would make its way back to television after the wilderness years began in 1989.
I believe it also paved the way and in fact some of the inspiration for the new series that would ultimately rescue the show from the darkness in 2005.
In less than an hour I will be watching the film in all of it’s Who goodness… blemishes, continuity problems, and all.
And don’t forget we will be reviewing the story on the next episode of Traveling the Vortex, so be sure to check it out.
