Regenerations DVD Box Set
BBC Wordwide have released details of a special 50th Anniversary DVD re-release which includes the much anticipated The Tenth Plant.
Regeneration: a limited edition collectors’ book, including over 1000 minutes of Doctor Who adventures on DVD will be released in June, doctorwho.tv can exclusively reveal.
The Doctor Who Regeneration set is an individually numbered, beautifully packaged, coffee table album including six DVDs of Doctor Who adventures – including fan favourites like The Caves of Androzani and The End of Time, plus an advance release of the First Doctor’s final adventure The Tenth Planet.
The set is adorned with superb photography from across the era and features detailed and informative accounts of each regeneration. The collection features each Doctor’s iconic regeneration episode; from the First Doctor played by William Hartnell, exhausted after battling the Cybermen to Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor suffering from radiation that had been unleashed by the Great One; and from the spectacular transformation of the Ninth Doctor to David Tennant’s emotional farewell as the Tenth.
And if that wasn’t enough, new to DVD is The Tenth Planet featuring the Doctor’s first regeneration – beautifully restored with the missing fourth episode now brought to life with stunning animation. Utilising the original soundtrack, off-screen photographs and a short surviving sequence of the Doctor’s regeneration the episode has been now reconstructed in animated form, incorporating the restored version of the surviving sequence.
Fans who have already bought most of these DVDs should not fear. The Tenth Planet is also going to be released by itself in the future.

The Beginning Companion Chronicle
Big Finish have released details of their 50th Anniversary Companion Chronicle story, The Beginning, which takes the listen right back to the very first Doctor Who story as the Doctor escapes Gallifrey with Susan.
The synopsis for the story is: When the First Doctor and his grand-daughter Susan escape through the cloisters of Gallifrey to an old Type 40 Time Travel capsule, little do they realise the adventures that lie ahead… And little do they know, as the TARDIS dematerialises and they leave their home world behind, there is someone else aboard the ship. He is Quadrigger Stoyn, and he is very unhappy…
The Beginning stars Carole Ann Ford as Susan and Terry Molloy, “best known to series aficionados as Davros on TV and audio, and to radio fans as Mike Tucker on Radio 4’s legendary soap opera The Archers. He plays Quadrigger Stoyn, a man who is caught up in the action when the Doctor and Susan when they make their escape – and it won’t be the last you hear of him in this anniversary year…”
The Beginning is released in November 2013.
