WIN 1 of 5 copies of Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space on Blu-ray

We’ve teamed up with the great guys over at BBC Worldwide to offer you the chance to win one of five brand new copies of Spearhead from Space on Blu-ray!

Spearhead from Space was released on Blu-ray in July last year and it’s the first time ever that the third Doctor has been in HD!

Read all about the story and extra content below:

Exile! The Time Lords have banished the newly regenerated Doctor to Earth… 

But The Doctor isn’t the only alien to have arrived, as a swarm of meteorites have crashed into the sleepy English countryside, bringing with them a terrible new threat to mankind. 

As the Nestene plan takes shape, UNIT, The Doctor and his newly appointed scientific advisor, Liz Shaw, race against time to stop humanity from being replaced by a terrifying plastic facsimile race. 

With an Auton army on the rise, and no TARDIS to help him, could The Doctor’s latest incarnation be over before it has truly begun…? 

Originally broadcast on BBC1 between 3rd-24th January 1970, this is the only adventure from the classic era of Doctor Who which can be remastered into true HD quality owing to all four episodes being shot on location on 16mm film.

Starring Jon Pertwee as the third Doctor, Caroline John as Liz Shaw and Nicholas Courtney as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart.

  • A Dandy and a Clown exclusive documentary looks at the life and career of Jon Pertwee
