I think one of the main problems with Ambassadors though isn't the colour but the fact that it's a very poor telerecording that's damaged and they are having problems making it presentable in any form. It's an excellent story though so I hope they do get it done soon. Great news too about Mind Of Evil. I wouldn't have minding it staying in B&W but it would be great to see it in colour

How come it needed colourising?

The BBC's copy was junked, and the only copy available was one exported to a country (not sure which) that still only had black & white, so that was how their copy was.  They've done the same with a bits before (notably episode 3 of Planet of the Daleks) but The Mind of Evil and The Ambassadors of Death are the only ones from the colour era that need to be almost completely recolourised.

Ambassadors of Death is (apparently) proving something of a pig to recolour and refurbish. Hope the don't run in to the same issues with Mind of Evil

I'm adding this in here, and I put it in the missing episodes thread too. It sort of fits both.

I read today that the restoration team are working on the material that was cut out of Planet of Giants but was kept in the archives, and are going to restore it to the four episode format that it was originally filmed and intended as. I'm assuming it will feature as a bonus on the DVD rather than the main story though, so we will still see the cut and edited eps 3&4 as just one episode, but will also have the opportunity to see them as two full episodes, too.

I think this is one of the most misleading names for an episode Wink Though it will be worth it to see 'that' explosion again Smiley

It has just been confirmed on Twitter today by the Classic DW team that the extras for Ambassadors of Death have just been cleared. So it looks like there is some movement on the release of this story. This makes me very excited as this will be a really cool addition to the DVD collection (and will mean it is a full house from Jon Pertwee's debut season and also marks David Whittaker's last contribution to Doctor Who).

They were going to release it last year but then cancelled at the last minute because the damage was worse than anticipated. I hope they get it out soon. It's a great little story.

Doctor Who Series 7 Part 1 is listed for sale on November 12th. If it's like the last two seasons it should include 2 episodes that haven't even aired at this point. Unless it's going back to the format for the first 4 series' of several sets. Or it may have 5 on one release and 9 on the other. Or three sets of 5, 5 and 4. Who knows. Seems early either way.

I think I'll wait for the complete set ... whenever that comes out. I don't mind if my cable box is chock full of Who  Smiley

Just been announced by @classicdw on twitter that the extras for Terror of the Zygons have been cleared for release. Can't wait for this one - it's an amazing story and desperately in need of a good DVD make over

A trailer for The Ice Warriors has been passed by the classification board, meaning a DVD release should be on the way.

Interesting. There's been no announcement about reconstruction or animation like they did with The Reign Of Terror, but that doesn't mean it won't happen. This is a good candidate for animation and if the Ice Warriors do return then the demand for it would be increased.

I'm not sure about Tenth Planet, but I know that a while back David Troughton said that he had taken part in a documentary about his father for inclusion on The Ice Warriors.

Tenth Planet, as far as I know, is being held back for a while, but a trailer was recently rated by the BBFC which all but confirms that Ice Warriors is coming. I imagine they will announce it once The Crusade is out so that it doesn't steal the thunder.

With HMV closing down I thought I would go in today and see if I could get some Doctor Who bargains and all they had left was a copy of Vengeance on Varos (for £22 Shocked) and the vanilla DVDs from the new series. No box sets of other classics at all. I was gutted
