Doctor Who Season 20 will be the next release in The Collection, the Blu-ray set which remasters and upscales Classic Who alongside new documentaries.
Season 20 stars Peter Davison as the Fifth Doctor, with Janet Fielding as Tegan Jovanka; it also features the introduction of Turlough (Mark Strickson) and the departure of Nyssa (Sarah Sutton).
The run of episodes celebrated 20 years of Doctor Who:
- Arc Of Infinity
- Mawdryn Undead
- The King’s Demons
- The Five Doctors
And to mark the occasion, the show brought back the Brigadier and the Black Guardian, Omega, the Mara, the Master, the Cybermen, and the Time Lords.
All episodes have been newly remastered from the best available sources including original film elements for The Five Doctors.
Plus, there’s a great new trailer, written by Pete McTighe, for this limited edition nine-disc box set…
