|For the first time in a long time, we’ve got some upcoming North American Doctor Who DVD releases not featuring a title that’s been recently released in the UK.
June 12 will see the release of the special editions (née Revisitations) of the Patrick Troughton/Ice Warriors story The Seeds of Death along with Peter Davison’s lone battle against the Daleks, Resurrection of the Daleks.
Full special features have yet to be announced by Warner, though it’s safe to assume the North American releases will offer the same bonuses as folks got in the UK. With these releases, North America is finally caught up to the UK as far as Revisitations titles are concerned, with one exception – there’s still neither hide nor hair of the special edition of Spearhead From Space on this side of the Atlantic. Is it an issue with the Fleetwood Mac song? Who knows…
Also, as previously announced on Radio Free Skaro, June 12 will see the North American release of Series Five of The Sarah Jane Adventures, an offering which will indeed include the lone bonus item Goodbye Bannerman Road, Chris Chapman’s wonderful look at the series and the passing of its lead actress and star, Lis Sladen.
The Doctor Who releases will each be 2-disc sets and carry an MSRP of $34.98. Series Five of The Sarah Jane Adventures is a single disc release with an MSRP of $19.98. More details about these Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures releases can be found at TVShowsOnDVD.com.
