April 2012 North America Doctor Who DVD Releases


The April 2012 Doctor Who DVD releases have been announced, and we’ll see one new title and one Revisitations title.

Hitting store shelves on April 10, The Daemons will not have the Return To Devil’s End featurette on it, but that was known a while ago. We will, however, get a new Aldbourne-based documentary along with a tribute to Barry Letts and the usual fare of a commentary, photo gallery, Coming Soon trailer, and more.

Another Pertwee story rounds out the month’s offerings with the Special Edition release of Carnival of Monsters, the great Robert Holmes story that brought us, and our dear listeners, the concept of the Miniscope. Along with the commentary track from the original release, we get a new commentary track along with featurettes on puppetry and CSO, extended/alternate/deleted scenes and of course the content from the initial DVD release of the story.

For more details, including a complete listing of the special features, check out the post at TV Shows On DVD.

Update: The full list of extras has now been made available and can be found at TVShowsOnDVD.com. Among the awesome-sounding bonus material is a featurette on colour testing for The Daemons done in 1992 and an early edit of Episode 2 from Carnival of Monsters.

Each of these titles is a 2-disc release with an MSRP of $34.98. Click on the artwork for larger versions.

  1. The Carnival of Monsters is one story that did NOT need to be revisitied.
