Doctor Who: The Brain of Morbius in July
The Restoration Team have posted details on their website of the forthcoming Classic Who DVD The Brain of Morbius, due for release on 21st July. This Tom Baker four-parter from 1976 sees the Doctor and companion Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) travelling to the planet Karn where they encounter the titular brain, the still-living remains of an infamous Time Lord criminal, and his assistant Solon (Philip Madoc) who is building his master a new body and only needs the Doctor's head to complete the work. Directly inspired by numerous cinematic versions of Frankenstein, it is one of the highlights of the show's thirteenth season and not at all bland.
Extras on the DVD will be as follows:
as well as the usual Photo Gallery, Coming Soon trailer, Radio Times Billings PDF, Programme subtitles, Subtitle Production Notes and two Easter Eggs. In addition, Episode One will include ten seconds of restored music and effects from the original transmission which have been missing from every previous VHS release.
As ever, more details can be found at the Restoration Team's website here.
