The Dalek War DVD Box Set

2Entertain have now revealed the cover and some details for the upcoming Doctor Who Dalek War box set. The box set includes two DVDs featuring Dalek episodes starring Jon Pertwee as The Doctor; Frontier in Space, and Planet of the Daleks. The DVD's cover can be seen to the left and the official synopses for both stories in the box set can be read below:

Frontier in space
When the TARDIS accidentally brings the Doctor and Jo aboard Earth cargo ship C982, they find it under attack. The crew perceive the Doctor, Jo and the attackers as Draconians, whose empire currently rivals Earth’s for control of the galaxy. But the Doctor and Jo see only Ogrons – brutish, simian mercenaries who steal the cargo, including the TARDIS, and head off into space.

The Doctor’s investigations take him to Earth, the Moon and then to Draconia itself. He discovers that the Ogrons are employed by his sworn enemy, the Master, who is attempting to provoke a war between the space empires. The Doctor suspects the scale of the plan is too grand for the Master, but even he is shocked to discover the identity of the far deadlier foe waiting in the wings…

Planet of the Daleks
Injured after a shoot-out between his old nemesis the Master and the Ogrons, slaves to the evil Daleks, the Doctor sends a message to the Time Lords, asking them to pilot his TARDIS and follow the Daleks to their new base. After he slips into a coma, it falls to his assistant Jo Grant to explore the planet where the TARDIS finally materialises. She meets a party of Thals and is left in hiding aboard their crashed spaceship while they go to the Doctor’s aid. On his recovery, the Doctor learns of their mission to destroy a party of Daleks sent here to discover the native Spiridons’ secret of invisibility.

Not only must the Doctor contend with the Daleks’ new scheme, but he must try to stop them unleashing a plague that will exterminate all organic life. When a rescue ship of Thals arrive, they bring with them darker news still – somewhere on Spiridon 12,000 Daleks are waiting to emerge and take what they believe is their rightful place as the Universe’s supreme beings!

Both DVDs will include many special features such as commentary with Katy Manning, Prentis Hancock, Tim Preece, producer Barry Letts and script editor Terrance Dicks. The Dalek War DVD box set will be released across the United Kingdom and Ireland on the 5th of October, at a regular retail price of £34.99. Will you be purchasing a copy of this box set when it is released later this year?
