Now on DVD

Our "new new Doctor" sets off on his first proper adventure in this opener for the 2006 season, where exploration, intrigue, action, and emotionally moving scenes combine into a near perfect and extremely satisfying mix.

Review: "Kinda"

Only on VHS

Fascinatingly bizarre acting performances create a minor triumph in this
oft-overlooked but rewarding
studio-bound tale.

Review: "Time-Flight"

Now on DVD

A loud raspberry to the simplistic horror fans, as this story courageously enters intangible territory in the
sci-fi/mystery/fantasy genres, tackles complex subject matter, and survives a loosening plot through its enjoyable characters and high spirits.

New for December 29, 2007:

A deadly alien warrior and a humourous band of freeloading medieval swordsmen make an entertaining combination in this highly enjoyable season 11 opener that introduced Sarah Jane Smith to the show.

"Terror of the Zygons"

Only on VHS

Tom Baker's best U.N.I.T. story delivers substance with its style and comes out on top of the highly over-rated 13th season.

"Planet of Evil"

Now on DVD

This highly atmospheric story filled with all the right elements is only missing a few effects and a bit of character logic....

"Pyramids of Mars"

Now on DVD

This exceptional visual treat of a story offers a solid plot and dynamic ending, but suffers a sleepy pace and a number of blandly fanatical characters. The gothic season has spoken.
