Classic Doctor Who documentary finally gets DVD release

Posted Filed under

A real treat for Doctor Who fans is heading to DVD on November 13th.

That’s when Koch Media will release a three-disc set by the name of The Daemons Of Devil’s End. And you’re set to get a fair bit for your money, too.

The highlight is arguably what’s on disc two, the 1992 documentary Return To Devil’s End. As per the press release blurb, “this marvellous production stars JON PERTWEE (The Third Doctor), NICHOLAS COURTNEY (The Brigadier), RICHARD FRANKLIN (Capt. Yates), JOHN LEVENE (Sgt. Benton) and THE DAEMONS director, CHRISTOPHER BARRY. NICHOLAS BRIGGS (currently the voice of the Daleks in DOCTOR WHO), 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 is rightly considered one of the best behind-the-scenes look at the making of DOCTOR WHO ever produced”.

Disc one, meanwhile, gives you the new drama production White Witch Of Devil’s End, starring Damaris Hayman. Again, as per the blurb, “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, daemonic 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?”

We’re promised that both discs will be packed with features. And the third DVD will feature The Daemons Revisited documentary.

The asking price for the three disc set is currently £19.99 on Amazon. And you can find it right here:
