I was surprised yesterday to find two new Doctor Who DVDs in my mailbox. I ordered them, of course, but I thought they weren't suppose to come out until July. So I am now the proud owner of The Two Doctors and The Curse of Fenric on DVD.
The second disk in The Curse of Fenric set contains a kick a*s special edition movie version of the episode that is in 5.1 Dolby surround, has updated effects, and tons of additional footage (originally cut for time). The disks also have several behind the scene documentaries, and a commentary track with Sylvester McCoy and Sophie Aldred (The Doctor and Ace).
It's mega-cool, and you should be ordering it even as you attempt to finish this sentence, so I'll try to let this sentence run on just a bit to give you time to do just that and by the time this sentence is finished you should have it all ordered and you'll have a copy of your own for your DVD player to worship with in a week or so time, of course, if you don't order it, you're a weenie, and no one likes a weenie unless they are barbequed over nicely hot coals with mustard and on a toasted bun, and perhaps with some soda to help wash it all down.
The Two Doctors DVD is no slouch either. It contains several documentaries, and audio commentary by Colin Baker, Frazer Hines, Jacqueline Pearce, and Nicola Bryant as well. It also has the Jim'll Fix It Dr Who "episode", "In a Fix with the Sontarians".
Not that anyone actually bothers to read any of this but here it is anyway...

And here's Charles Krauthammer to give a nice summary:
