As hinted by 2 Entertain’s Dan Hall’s silence when asked about it at the recent Recon event, the only classic Doctor Who story entirely shot on film, Spearhead from Space, is coming to the Blu-ray format next year.
Although CBS Digital has had some success in upscaling video footage for their Star Trek: The Next Generation releases on Blu-ray, it would seem likely that Spearhead is the only tale from the classic show that will be treated this way. New extras will be included on the release including a tribute to Caroline John, who played Liz Shaw.
Other confirmed releases listed in the new Doctor Who Magazine include The Reign of Terror with the two completed animated episodes (of which Sci-Fi Bulletin saw a preview at the Recon event and can confirm look good), as well as special editions of The Ark in Space and The Aztecs, which will include the recently-discovered episode from Galaxy 4. At the event, Hall promised new material every three weeks during the anniversary year leading up to a very special release on 23rd November.
