I figured that I would go ahead and start the 2013 thread for all of the 2013 Classic Series DVD releases, so here it is.

At the moment, we don't have any confirmed dates as of yet for 2013, but all of the following titles:

Shada
Terror of the Zygons
The Mind of Evil
The Reign of Terror

are all listed as being "In Preparation" on the Doctor Who official release site. This should mean 2013 releases for them.

Looking forward to all of these so much! Zygons finally has a release date!

Glad they're doing an Ark in Space special edition too - I always like the "making of" extras on the DVDs and, of course, the original Ark in Space release was a bit light on these.

I was hoping Galaxy 4 - Airlock would be in with Tenth Planet, I might have got it on release if it had been. Now I don't now when or if I'll get to see it as I'm loathed to re-buy Aztecs just to get the rediscovered episode. Very cynical decision by BBC Worldwide to pair it with a special edition when their is still one unreleased Hartnell story.

Yay another version of Spearhead, just what every fans wants.

So there is the Spearhead DVD, the copy you were forced to own if you wanted Terror of the Autons and a now a blu ray version.

Look on the bright side at least its due in the next 5 months. If it was on tenth planet it might not be due out till this time next year. Better to wait 5 months than a year

Got to admit at first i groaned at the idea but the exclusive jon and caroline documentaries have certainly got me tempted

Further to my comments on this, I can't see the difference between DVD and blu ray anyway, but my eyes are bad and I know some people can. However but is there any noticable difference between the two when it comes to a show like Doctor Who, which wasn't filmed in very high definition in the first place?

Spearhead was recorded completly on 16 mm film. The only story of its original run that was. Dwm describes spearhead as the only title from the original 63 to 89 run that can be released in a high defininition format

I for one won't be buying Spearhead on blu-ray for 3 main reasons:

1. There won't be that much of a difference in quality
2. The 2011 DVD release is perfectly fine to me and was a massive improvement over the crappy 2001 release!
And
3. A lone blu-ray box sticking out amongst a whole DVD collection would look stupid!

On a different note, I find it odd that Terror of the Zygons isn't being released until June next year when all the extras have been passed by the BBFC (and I'm pretty sure restoration work is finished), I was expecting it between February and March! But at least it finally has a release date after all these years I've been waiting for it!

Really? Extras for Terror of the Zygons? Does this include deleted scenes? I've always found the Zygons to be amongst the scariest of the monsters.

Actually, have we had a scariest Dr. Who character/monster poll?

i really cannot understand why galaxy 4 and underwater menace are not being released together.it sort of dilutes the thrill of the discovery of the two missing episodes which was quite some time ago now.feel totally cheated by galaxy 4 being released with the aztecs forcing me to buy this release to keep my collection complete.my old copy of aztecs will be on its way to cex or cash generator tomorrow while it still has some value.i am boycotting the rest of the special edition re-releases as my own protest at this decision.spearhead from space blu ray?no chance as i have bought this story 4 times already

There is no point releasing the 2 together on a seperate DVD IMO, it would look and feel hollow in my collection because, as I put my Dvds in story order, the dvd would have nowhere to go, and I would put it at the back, seperately, and only watch it on rare occasions. Without the complete stories, the 2 found episodes remain curios or oddities, giving me an insight or a glimpse of the story and not the full story itself. The Dvd release of the 2 together would lack substance.

Surely, the 2 might have worked better as extras on the Legacy boxset?

They presumably think anyone who is a hardcore enough fan to want to see Airlock will be willing to pay for The Aztecs again.

The dvds go down to about 8 on amazon 6 months after release if you were prepared to wait.

i would rather have seen them on a lost in time 2 dvd or lost in time revisited than this.releasing galaxy 4 ep 3 and not the underwater menace 2 makes no sense whatsoever.

Apparently spearhead blu ray will be a brand new transfer which looks even better than the dvd.Simple solution to point 3 is just put the blu ray disc into the dvd box or keep them seperatly

Just because something has passed the bbfc doesnt mean the release is imminit. Extras for twin dilema was passed about a year prior to its release so its not a guarantee its due soon.

The budget would have already been alocated for legacy box at the time of the episode find

They are releasing underwater menace 2 we just dont know where at this moment. I can see 3 possibilities

1. Its getting put on ice warriors
2. Its getting its own release with part 3 and parts 1 and 4 get filled by animation or some other form of reconstruction
3. It is going on a revisit of some kind

I know for a fact earlier this year steve roberts ruled out a lost in time 2 or revisit by saying there are no plans
