The Time Warrior and the Key To Time season are to be released on DVD in the UK by 2Entertain later this year, says the official programme website.
September 3 will see The Time Warrior available. This story launched Jon Pertwee's final season as the Third Doctor and saw the debuts of companion Sarah Jane Smith, as played by Elisabeth Sladen, and classic monsters the Sontarans.
According to the British Board of Film Classification site, the extras will include a 30-minute documentary entitledBeginning The End - Making The Time Warrior, as well as a trailer, two Easter eggs and a photo gallery.
Sixteen new CGI shots have also been created, spanning all four episodes.
A box set of the six-story Season 16, with Tom Baker as the Doctor andMary Tamm as assistant Romana, will apparently be out on September 23, although that date is a Sunday.
The Key To Time season has already been available on DVD in the USA and Canada for a number of years, although its UK release will include "the full extras it deserves", according to the BBC website.
Further details of those extras will be announced at a later date.
