The Daemons of Devil's End (Credit: Koch Media) A three-DVD special release featuring material based on the much loved Third Doctor story The Dæmons, is to be released on 13th November.

The three Disc release from Reeltime Pictures contains two unique productions and features stars including Jon Pertwee and Damaris Hayman reprising her role as Olive Hawthorn from the 1971 story.

Disc One is a brand-new drama production White Witch of Devil's End starring Damaris Hayman.

With a blend of dramatic monologue enhanced with visualisations and sound design to develop and tell the stories, the drama is an anthology of tales following the magical life of Olive Hawthorne, from childhood to her final days as the protector of Devil s End. Drawing on a rich heritage and appreciation of witchcraft and fokelore, the stories bring Olive's history to life, pitting her against vampire, succubus, fae, demonic influence and more - as Guardian of Devil's End, she must do what she must to protect the village ... but what happens when she reaches the end of her life? Who will protect the townsfolk then?
Disc Two is the long-awaited DVD release of the classic documentary Return to Devil's End.

Filmed around the village of Aldbourne in 1992, this marvellous production stars Jon Pertwee, Nicholas Courtney, Richard Franklin, John Levene and The Dæmons director, Christopher Barry.

Nicholas Briggs takes the cast and director on a trip around the locations, deftly gleaning stories and anecdotes about filming the classic Doctor Who series in 1971. Including interviews with villagers and rare archive film and photos. This documentary has been praised as one of the best behind-the-scenes look at the making of Doctor Who ever produced.

Both discs are packed with bonus features, and the third bonus disc contains video of conventions held in Aldbourne to celebrate one of Doctor Who's most fondly remembered stories.
