#106: The Tenth Planet

NOTE - Episodes 4 is missing from the BBC archives, so it has been animated for this release

Release date - October 2013



Back cover info:
"The TARDIS lands at the South Pole in 1986. The arrival coincides with the appearance of Earth's forgotten twin planet Mondas along with visitors from that world — the emotionless Cybermen. It's up to the Doctor and his friends to stop the creatures before they convert Earth's population into similar cyber creations — but the encounter will have a devastating effect on the Doctor...

This DVD contains a brand-new animated episode 4, currently missing from the BBC Archives."


Special features:
Disc 1
  • Commentary with Anneke Wills (Polly), Christopher Matthews (Radar Technician), Earl Cameron (Williams), Alan White (Schultz), Donald Van Der Maaten (Cybermen Shav and Gern), Christopher Dunham (R/T Technician) and Peter Kindred (designer). Moderated by Toby Hadoke

Disc 2
  • William Hartnell Interview (dur. 3.18) - Shortly after leaving Doctor Who, William Hartnell joined the 1966 Christmas pantomime tour of ‘Puss in Boots’. Interviewed in his dressing room for BBC Bristol’s ‘Points West’ programme, Hartnell talks frankly about Daleks, the merits of pantomime and his own thoughts on his future career in this extremely rare glimpse into the mind of the man who first brought the role of the Doctor to life…
  • Doctor Who Stories: Anneke Wills (dur. 13.38) – Anneke Wills look back on her role as Polly in the series

  • Blue Peter (dur. 9.04) – Two weeks before the show’s tenth anniversary, the Blue Peter team take a look back at Doctor Who’s history. Ironically, the strict preservation of Blue Peter’s history means that the clip of the first regeneration has been preserved, but the final episode of ‘The Tenth Planet’ that it came from was never again seen after its use here
