Tom Baker’s “Doctor Who” Series 14 is getting an extras-packed new Collectors Edition box set
The BBC are continuing their Doctor Who Collection releases, and the next one will showcase series 14, which starred fan favourite Tom Baker.
As usual this will be jam-packed with bonus features, including new audio commentaries, interviews and documentaries, as well as archival extras from previous DVD releases.
This is due for release on April 20th, and pre-orders are live now.
In 1976, Doctor Who took a dramatic new turn, electrifying audiences with changes in format, companion and appearance of the TARDIS. Season 14 saw the departure of the Doctor’s long-term companion Sarah Jane Smith, and the introduction of Leela. The season contains some of Tom Baker’s most iconic serials, with intrepid investigations in Victorian London, deadly robots in a murderous whodunit, a return to the Doctor’s homeworld, and one of the saddest goodbyes in Doctor Who history.
Producer Phillip Hinchliffe led Doctor Who through a creative high, joined by Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith, Louise Jameson as the Doctor’s captivating new companion Leela and guests stars Tim Pigott-Smith, Stephen Thorne, Peter Pratt, Pamela Salem, David Collings, Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter.
