The Sci Fi Online site features a new update on possible UK DVD releases in 2005. The site picks up on Outpost Gallifrey's previous reports that The Claws of Axos will be part of the 2005 schedule and backtracks a bit on their previous report that The Mind Robber will be the first 2005 release (it's now a "contender" for early 2005 according to the site), but also adds the name of the William Hartnell serial The Web Planet to the list of possible releases. (The article notes that the story "will pose a few problems for the VidFIRE video estimation process due to the smearing applied to the æexteriorÆ shots, something that the software may have problems processing.") Members of the Restoration Team have noted that the first DVD release of 2005 will be "interesting" and will definitely be in color... it will not, however, be a set of the new TV series' episodes, because they won't have been broadcast by then.

Another story on the same site says claims one of the features on the Lost in Time DVD collection release coming soon will be film inserts from episode 1 of The Space Pirates, which were not previously known widely to exist. We have yet to see any official confirmation of this, however.
