First, a few more of Warners’ generally spectacular Doctor Who releases.
First, Doctor Who The Movie Special Edition. Poor Paul McGann, he had real promise (I miss neo-Victorian Doctors), but the Americanized movie kind of sucked. Even so, it’s probably worth revisiting for what might have been—and what is best forgotten, like the idea that the Doctor was half-human so that he could go on a Spielbergian quest to find his missing father, or the first instance of Doctor/Companion romance—and to see Sylvester McCoy one last time. Perhaps to make up for the lackluster central product, the two disc set is packed. Two commentaries to start with, and a ton of other stuff. See the list in the costumer comments in the Amazon listing.
Also available is another 2 disc set, featuring the Jon Pertwee adventure The Mutants.
