Complete Series 9
Apologies for the lack of updates over the last week or so. Don't worry, normal service will resume later this week when I review The Husbands of River Song on Friday night.
Am taking a little breather now that Series 9 is out of the way. Coming soon will be the latest of the TARDIS Travels (once Friday evening's episode has aired), The Trial of a Time Lord Part 4, plus another history blog crossover looking at the real Emperor Nero. I am also planning a Star Wars / Doctor Who crossover piece, to tie in with the current release of the 7th movie. Haven't done one of those for quite a while.
In the meantime, I'd just like to flag up the fact that they have finally announced the release of the Complete Series 9 on Blu-Ray & DVD. It is in the shops in the UK on March 7th, 2016.
Lots of interesting extras advertised - including documentaries on the Daleks and River Song. Also deleted scenes, plus Comic-Con panels and interviews.
One thing I'm very pleased to see is that it will include both the 2014 and the 2015 Christmas Specials, with their attendant "making of" featurettes.
Talking of "Complete" things, I was disappointed to see that there is a big problem with the recent volume of the "Complete History" that covers The Mind Robber, The Invasion and The Krotons. Some of the text runs out prematurely, as though there is a page missing. Add to this a wrongly captioned photo in the Pertwee volume, and this "complete history" is proving to be anything but.
