    Here's a little mental game that I like to play with myself. Working out which story should be the next to be released on DVD for each Doctor.
    Let's start with the First Doctor:
    I would love to see the Tenth Planet released just because of its importance in terms of first regeneration and first appearance of the cybermen. I remember the target novel fondly.
    It would be great if the missing last part could be animated but even a photographic slide show with the sound track would be better than nothing.
    Any other ideas for the next Bill Hartnell story?

    I agree! I'd like to see Planet of Spiders released from the Pertwee years for similar reasons I'd really like to see all the regeneration stories released, even Time and the Rani (ducking for cover).

    Yes, definitely The War Games for the 2nd Doctor, I agree. I'm sure I heard rumours that they were preparing this. My local newspaper the Brighton Evening Argus had an ad asking people if they had photos or memories of this being filmed a while back. I'm not sure what its connection with Brighton is though.
    But a definite must for DVD. Is it the longest existing story?

    Well, it's the longest if you don't consider Trial of a Time Lord or The Key to Time as a single story. As for the Brighton connection, that was principal exterior location for the WWI battlefield seen in the earlier episodes of the serial. Technically, all that was filmed in a what's the euphemism? "waste reclamation facility" in Sheepcote Valley. Hardly Brighton proper, though; I really wonder how many respondents the newspaper got to that ad.

    I travel about round the UK quite a bit (combination of work, family and leisure). Whenever I go anywhere I'll always get the local paper to get a bit of a feel of the place I'm at - and by some distance the Argus is my favourite. Possibly because I've so much time for the town itself, don't know - but I do enjoy reading it.

    Nothing to do with DVDs I know, but seeing as you mentioned it...

    Any other ideas for the next Bill Hartnell story?
    Given the general synergy that's existed between the 2Entertain and BBC Wales release schedules, I'm surprised that "The Romans" isn't out already. I would've thought that should've been this year's Hartnell, over "The War Machines".

    In the same way that we've seen original series Sontaran stories released around the time of the release of "The Sontaran Stratagem", and "The Invasion" came out around the time of the Cybus Cybermen introduction, I would've thought "The Romans" would've been a natural fit around the release of "The Fires of Pompeii". Or at least "The Sensorites", given the explicit connections between them and the Ood.

    If and when they do release "The Space Museum", I'm kinda hoping they do it on a double-bill with "The Chase", since the two are narratively linked in a stronger way than was typical of one Hartnell story to another.

    Still, the one that's ripest for the most interesting extra features is probably "Planet of Giants". I'd love for some definitive documentary to be done on that story, since it took a lot of twists and turns behind the scenes. It should've been the pilot, but then wasn't; should've been a four parter, but then wasn't; should've been massively difficult to film on the budget allowed; but turned out to be pretty easy. It's just a weird, funky little story that you could make it into an entertaining meal with the right "package".

    Thanks for that information Darth. Now it makes me want to see the DVD even more being Brighton born and bred.
    The Sheepcote valley is very amuch a part of Brighton just up the road from Roedean ( a very posh private school for girls). It's just that Brighton is a lot larger and more sprawling than many people think (altho obviously not on the scale of many American cities).
    Any time you're here for a visit and mi casa...

    As for the Third Doctor - there are so many choices. I'd love to see Planet of the Spiders obviously - it was the first regeneration I saw as a kid and I love the huge chase scene. I'd also like to see Planet of the Daleks - we don't have any 3rd Doctor and Daleks on DVD yet and this is one of the best (one of the best Dalek stories ever in fact).
    However, I have to go with the Daemons - because the ensemble cast are there and because we just don't have enough of Roger Delgado yet - also because there are some obvious special features that could make this an excellent package!

    The War Games filmed at various locations in Sussex. The Chase was filmed at Camber Sands in Sussex. The Restoration team asked in local papers for anyone who has memories of the filming of either of these story's to get in contact with them. They also recently asked, in a local paper, if anyone had memories of The Mask of Mandragora being filmed at Portmeirion in North Wales.

    Sounds like some good stuff coming our way soon.
    For the Fourth Doctor DVD I'd choose Seeds of Doom which I saw agains a few years ago and loved. For my part, you can't beat those Doctor/Sarah Hinchcliff seasons - maybe because I grew up with them.

    The Restoration Team have put up preview articles for "The War Machines" & "Four To Doomsday" DVDs on their site. There is also a very good trailer for "The War Machines"
