Cinema Sentries have teamed up with BBC Home Entertainment to give six lucky readers the opportunity to win a Doctor Who program featuring the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee).
Doctor Who: Spearhead From Space is notable for being the first story of Jon Pertwee’s tenure as the Third Doctor, the first Doctor Who story to be presented in color, and the first to be shot entirely on film. The latter aspect is what makes this classic Who able to presented in high definition. The Spearhead From Space Special Edition DVD was reviewed by Greg Barbrick and the Blu-ray reviewed by Mat Brewster.
As punishment for breaking the laws of time, the Time Lords have forced the Doctor to change his appearance, taken away his ability to time travel, and exiled him to Earth. But newly regenerated Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) 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: the Nestene consciousness, a disembodied alien intelligence with an affinity for plastic. The Doctor and his newly appointed scientific advisor, Liz Shaw (Caroline John), join UNIT in a race against time to stop humanity from being replaced by a terrifying plastic facsimile race.
When a man is found dead with his skin glowing green in an abandoned mine, it’s not long before the Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee), Jo Grant and UNIT head to Wales to investigate. And while the Doctor becomes suspicious of the nearby Global Chemicals factory and its mysterious owner, Jo gets trapped underground where she finds old mine tunnels crawling with deadly and sinister giant maggots. The Green Death was reviewed by Greg Barbrick.
