New DVDs

March 7, 2009

A new DVD boxset has been announced in DWM 406 containing two Cyberman stories to be released on 13 April. Sadly, the announcement is not The Tenth Planet and The Moonbase re-animated. Instead, we have 2006‘s Rise of the Cybermen/The Age of Steel and Army of Ghosts/Doomsday, with an exclusive interview with David Tennant and a documentary on the best Cybermen moments.

Also to be released in April, and announced in DWM 406, is 1977’s Image of the Fendahl, including a commentary with Tom Baker, Louise Jameson, Wanda Ventham and Edward Arthur.

DWM 406 is released today.

The main article is a feature about the spin-off show featuring the Daleks that almost aired in America in 1967. There is also a two-page interview with David Tennant about Comic Relief (he is hosting part of the Comic Relief telethon this year).

There are two more interviews in the magazine. The first is Gareth Roberts’ four-page interview, discussing his work on Doctor Who in the past, as well as on Planet of the Dead. The last interview takes the “Who on Earth Is…” spot, with Colin Baker.

There is also a two-page obituary to John Scott Martin; The Fact of Fiction: Logopolis; the first part of the comic strip Mortal Beloved; You Are Not Alone; and the Time Team looking at Remembrance of the Daleks.

One noticable difference was a removal of the cover page of The DWM Review section, instead moving the start of the first review and the main illustration to this page and having an abbrieviated contents at the bottom.
