The first release is...

Invasion of the Dinosaurs and The Android Invasion in January.

Amazon.ca says the February release is The Sensorites, they're listing the Canada release date as Feb 14th. They are also listing the rumoured third Revisitations box set titles, The Tomb of the Cybermen, The Three Doctors and Robots of Death, as being released in March.

In April Doctor Who Magazine said the following would be released in 2012:

The Sensorites
The Reign of Terror
Planet of Giants
The Krotons
Death to the Daleks
Terror of the Zygons
The Android Invasion
The Face of Evil
Nightmare of Eden
Ace box set (Dragonfire and The Happiness Patrol)
The Greatest Show in the Galaxy

Though as ever, until something is officially announced, everything is subject to change.

Even without Zygons that's a righteous list.

despite what DWM, says I'd be very surprised if all the remaining Mccoy stories are released next year my money is on Greatest Show, being the very last release.

Larry, why do you think Greatest Show will be the last? (other than its fantastic title making a great finale)

Are we done for 2011 now? No more in November?

for pretty much that reason after all we're probably looking at 2013 before everything is released onto DVD, and that also being the 50th Anniversary year - The Greatest Sgow in the Galaxy, would seem a very fitting title to bring the DVD run to an end.

Hi folks - long time follower, first time poster!
Have to agree with comments above - very excited about a lot of the confirmed and rumoured 2012 releases - also in regards to "Greatest Show.." was that not mooted for the once proposed "The End " BS so it would make sense to hold off till last I reckon.

According to a post I read on the Gallifrey Base forums, Dan Hall apparentley said in an interview that they won't release anymore Tom Baker stories (excluding the already confirmed Android Invasion) until all the other Doctor's stories have been released. Is this true?

Surely not- pretty sure I heard somewhere that Face of Evil and Nightmare of Eden are in the post for 2012, maybe not though?

I've not read all of this months DWM, but apparently they have confirmed that Face of Evil, will be released next year.

That doesn't leave much left to dilute the glut of Pertwees and Hartnells. It's like a flashback to the dying days of the VHS range! (as we all knew it would be)

well with all the restoration work that was needed for a lot of Jon Pertwee's stories I suppose it was inevitable that a good percentage of the remaining stories to be released would be his. TBH, I think now because we're so near the end of the DVD range i'm not really that bothered what we get next year.

I'm hoping that the BBC will be able to come to a deal with Reeltime to include it otherwise we'll have to buy it separately.

Whatever the BBC produce it won't have Jon Pertwee in it or Nicholas Courtney (unless its already been done) so it would be a real shame if they didn't include it.
I've seen Keith Barnfathers name on some of the BBC DVD documentaries so hopefully he will be able to join forces.

Its a great piece of work and now even more important that 2 of them are gone and if Reeltime sell it themselves it means far fewer people will get to see it than it deserves.

At the very least , a BBC dvd version will be able to insert the proper episode clips rather than rely on the photo album that Briggs took with him.
Speaking of Reeltime, it would be nice if the BBC would authorise them to release Ian Levine's recut version of Downtime with the new Sylvester McCoy footage.

Nick is on the commentary track as it was recorded way back when they released the Green Death.

that is one thing we should be truely grateful for that 2/Entertain, has had a policy of pre-recording a lot of stuff way in advance of a release (in some cases several years) .

I'm surprised they didn't do more in clusters. They did Terror of the Autons, Green Death and Carnival of Monsters all together to accommodate Kay Manning coming over from Oz. Terror of the Autons was therefore sitting there waiting for many years.

I would have loved to have had Jon Pertwee doing the DVD's had they been released prior to 1996 of course.

Reign of Terror I think might be April.

In an interview with Talking Who the Doctor Who talk show Dan Hall he said Greatest Show in the Galaxy will be in 5.1 audio.
