Web of Fear Limited Collector's Edition DVD Info

BBC Shop has released details for the special collector's edition of The Web of Fear. The story is one of two whose recovery was announced last year, along with Enemy of the World.
Now updated with a BBC Shop exclusive slipcase cover to match the style of Doctor Who: Enemy of the World Exclusive DVD.

The second serial in the infamous "missing episodes", recovered from far flung TV out-posts and lovingly remastered and pressed to disc for you to collect and keep, Web of Fear sees the second Doctor (Patrick Troughton) meet Colonel Lethbridge-Stewart, who goes on to be known as the Brigadier, for the first time.

Featuring robot Yeti, London Underground, The Great Intelligence and of course companions Jamie (Frazer Hines) and Victoria (Deborah Watling), this recovered story arc was deemed so scary that it was preceded by the following message, delivered by the Doctor sitting in one of the London Underground sets and saying:

‘Thank goodness… Oh, it's you... I thought for one moment it was... I'll just sit down for a minute.
I'm glad I met you as a matter of fact; there's something I want to tell you.
'When we start out on our next adventure – Jamie, Victoria and I – we meet some old friends.
Yes, and we also meet some old enemies. Very old enemies.
The Yeti as a matter of fact. Only this time they're just a little bit more frightening than last time.
So I'll warn you that if your Mummy or Daddy are scared, you just get them to hold your hand.
[sound of gunfire]
'Here we go again. I've got to go. See you soon – I hope!'

So you have been warned - sofas may be required for hiding behind and hands may get a little squeezed. Secure your copy of this lost classic today.
The region 2 disc will be available for sale on February 24th, but can be pre-ordered now for £13.99.
