Press release: The Fourth Doctor is heading to Blu-ray on June 19, 2018 in Doctor Who: Tom Baker Complete Season One from the home entertainment division of BBC Studios, featuring over five and a half hours of all-new exclusive bonus content. The earliest adventures of the beloved Classic-era Fourth Doctor - Robot, The Ark in Space, The Sontaran Experiment, Genesis of the Daleks, and Revenge of the Cybermen - have been restored for Blu-ray and are available in one collection for the very first time.
The Ark in Space was previously reviewed by Greg Barbrick, who wrote that “it is hard to believe this is only Baker's second time as the Doctor, as he already has the character completely down. He is brilliant, as is the story. Definitely one to watch.”Genesis of the Daleks was previously reviewed by Shawn Bourdo, who called it is “one of my most favorite Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) stories,” and it “still plays very well.”
The season is accompanied by extensive bonus features - over seventeen hours in total - with brand new exclusive material. Bonus content includes:
• Tom Baker in Conversation: A candid new one-hour interview with the Fourth Doctor.
• Behind the Sofa: Classic clips from Season 12, viewed by Doctor Who actors Tom Baker, Louise Jameson, Janet Fielding, and Sarah Sutton, producer Philip Hinchcliffe, and Sadie Miller, daughter of the late Elisabeth Sladen.
