The Two Doctors

Updated July 25: Full details of the forthcoming DVD release of The Two Doctors have been revealed by the newest issue of Doctor Who Magazine. The audio commentary has been recorded with Colin Baker, Nicola Bryant, Frazer Hines, director Peter Moffatt and guest star Jacqueline Pearce. The "Jim'll Fix It" segment with Colin, Janet Fielding and the Sontarans (and, of course, legendary Gareth Jenkins), is included on the disc, as well as "Behind the Sofa," a 45-minute documentary about the writing of Robert Holmes; "Beneath the Lights," a 25-minute featurette of studio recording footage; "Beneath the Sun," a 35-minute featurette with some of the raw footage shot on location in Seville, Spain; and "Adventures in Time and Spain," an interview with Gary Downie about the trials and tribulations of being a location manager, with particular reference to this story. Also included is a segment from the radio series "Wavelength" on the making of the story, an isolated music soundtrack, production notes, photo gallery and easter eggs. The disc is due out in the UK on September 8. (Thanks to DWM and Gallifrey5, and the Restoration Team for pointing out the error in the original report!)
