It's fun, but it's not regarded as being one of the best Tom Baker stories

Cheers Suzi! I'm going to give it a watch over the weekend. I'll report back when I've seen it. 

Its watchable....just about.

It would have been more suited to a 45 min single episode imo.

Looks like Inferno is going to get a Revisitations release next year:

Quote from Steve Roberts: "We announced today at Utopia 2012 that we are revisiting Inferno for a 2013 release, utilising a combination of film recordings and RSC colour."

But 'Inferno' already has a pretty good, two disc release

Can't help thinking we are being given a bit of a raw deal with the 'Revisitation' things. Although the new extra features are as wonderful as ever, it does seem a bit of a cheek to expect fans to spend money on stories that they probably already have.

It seems that the producers of the DVD's have come to the conclusion that fans of 'Doctor Who' are like fans of 'Rocky Horror' - they will buy any old rubbish that comes out containing the name!

And yes, if 'Inferno' is re-released, I will end up getting on the first day because I am a mug/fan*

Just listened to the commentary, and I am still none-the-wiser about what was meant to happen with the cliffhanger

To tell the truth, I'm even more confused now!

Interesting to see what they do with this. Inferno is an absolute classic.

I think stories are being re-released because they thought they could release discs right up until the 50th anniversary next November.

However some remasters/rebuilds are taking much longer than first anticipated, so i think the re-issues are just to fill in gap months.

I certainly won't be buying Inferno again. Its not actually a favourite of mine.
