BBC Worldwide have announced that the 1996 TV movie – which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year – will be released on Blu-ray in September… and it’s about time!
The TV movie stars Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor, Daphne Ashbrook as companion Grace Holloway and Eric Roberts as The Master. After the hiatus in ’89, the TV movie was the first new Doctor Who to appear during the ‘wilderness years’. With a new Doctor and a revived enthusiasm for the show, the TV movie paved the way for the new series in 2003 and also gave us Paul McGann’s Eighth Doctor who has continued to have new adventures in Big Finish audio dramas. Now you can finally own this historic piece of Doctor Who on Blu-ray!
