The Enemy of the World DVD

The BBC have released details on the upcoming DVD release of the recently discovered Doctor Who story, The Enemy of the World. It will be available from BBC Shop.com on Nov 22 and then from other retailers on Nov 25. The BBC Shop version also comes with a rather snazzy slipcase (see below), pre-order HERE.

Recovered and restored – a classic Patrick Troughton adventure!

The TARDIS lands on an Australian beach in the 21st Century, but this is no seaside holiday. Within minutes, the Doctor (Patrick Troughton), Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Victoria (Deborah Watling) are under attack.

They soon discover that the Doctor bears a startling resemblance to leader Salamander, a would-be dictator intent on world domination. Before long, the Doctor and his companions are plunged into a dangerous game of espionage, intrigue and deceit as they face off against the enemy of the world.

The Enemy of the World is the first of two classic Doctor Who stories recovered by BBC Worldwide in 2013. The story had not been viewed in the UK since it was first broadcast over 45 years ago. The second missing story, The Web of Fear, will be released on DVD in early 2014.


The DVD comes with a fully restored and remastered version of the story, subtitles and a Coming Soon trailer for The Web of Fear. The Enemy of the World is available on Nov 22 from the BBC Shop.com, and on Nov 25 from other retailers - pre-order HERE.

Thanks to BBC Worldwide

I assume WEB OF FEAR is being held back to animate episode 3?

Has anyone else noticed that "the question that must never be answered" from the show is also a clever reference to the missing episodes? If you change the question to be asked of the BBC then the answer becomes "where are the missing episodes".
