Ambassadors of Death Restoration Gets a Boost!

Ambassadors of Death

As reported in Wired magazine the restoration of Ambassadors of Death has gotten a boost due to a new editing computer. 

"Their method is a refined version of that trialled on the 2009 Planet of the Daleks re-release; it is now being deployed on a seven-part 1970 Jon Pertwee adventure, The Ambassadors of Death. "It seemed almost recordings, they didn't filter off the colour carrier [encoded as a 'chroma dot' pattern in each frame], which for the last few decades has been nothing more than an annoyance." Team member Richard Russell used the signal to reverse-engineer raw colour pictures that could be retouched frame by frame. "It's very, very labour intensive -- several hundred man hours' work every episode," says Steve Roberts. Luckily, a new "quadrant editor" is helping them to produce better source material upfront, so they hope to deliver the Ambassadors episodes to the BBC within weeks."

Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray and DVD Release Date

Doctor Who A Christmas Carol Blu-Ray

Even though we are still a couple weeks away from the airing of Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol (coming to BBC (6pm) and BBC America (9pm) on the 25th of December), we already have a release date for the special on Blu-ray and DVD.

Just in time for Gallifrey 22, the special is slated for release on the 15th of February. So much for giving it as a Valentine's Day gift. Along with the special, the accompanying 'Doctor Who: Confidential' on it and 'Doctor Who at the Proms 2010' will be included as bonus material.

We can also assume that the special will be available on iTunes the day after it is shown on BBC America, so figure on it being there on Boxing Day.

Doctor Who - The Movie: Special Edition DVD Coming to North America February 2011

Doctor Who 1996 region 1 DVD

As we previously announced, the Doctor Who 1996 Movie will finally be released as a region 1 DVD in North America. It has long been available on region 2 (I had my copy for some time now), it has been tied up in release rights issues between the studios involved (BBC, Fox, Universal) for a region 1 DVD release since the movie first aired.

We were pleased to report that it would finally be coming to region 1 with the recent revisiting of the DVD (a new re-release edition). Up until now, we didn't have a release date other than 2011 for this 8th Doctor adventure starring Paul McGann and Daphne Ashbrook. Now according to tvshowsondvd.com, BBC and Warner Home Video have announced that it will be released on February 8th as a 2-disc set titled, 'Doctor Who - The Movie: Special Edition.'

It coincides with the release of another 2-disc set 3rd Doctor story, 'The Mutants' starring Jon Pertwee as the Doctor and Katy Manning as Jo Grant on DVD.

Revisitations 2 Boxed Set Final line up!

Ice Warrior

So the final line up for the Revisitations boxed set is laid down. In an interview with podcast Radio Free Skaro, Steven Shapanski asked Dan Hall about two releases that I've previously reported on here. First is "The Day of the Daleks" which was the teaser trailer that I reported on in my blog here. Day of the Daleks, will be it's own release and not part of the Revisitations boxed set as I previously reported, and with all in all should not be expected until the end of 2011 beginning of 2012. Which left of course the question open, what would be the Third disk in the Boxed set Revisitations 2? The answer came as somewhat of a shock and moan from my self. The Seeds of Death, was the answer, granted the original 2 disk release left one wondering as to why there was a second disk at all. But Dan Hall revealed that Seeds of Death should have been a singular disk release. The other two disks will remain as reported "The Carnival of Monsters" and "Resurrection of the Daleks"

Preview of The Seeds of Doom DVD (video)

The Seeds of Doom DVD release is one that is extra special for Doctor Who: Podshock. You will know why when you view the extras included in the release. Here is promo video for the upcoming Tom Baker as the 4th Doctor DVD title.
