This will be discussed in the “Doctor Who: 50 in 50” podcast series on November 11, 2013. Also the first story shot entirely on film, which is what makes Blu-Ray releases possible without upconverting.

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “of the titles I’ve seen, I’d go with Doctor Who: Spearhead From Space if you’re looking for a one time story, or Doctor Who: The Green Death if you’re looking for something that lays groundwork for later stories (as recently as April, in fact).” Alex says, “Spearhead From Space was almost my pick, but I think I’ll have to rent the Blu-Ray first to see how much better it actually is from the DVD (in terms of features and picture quality). Instead, I’m going with Future Diary, as the premise (Early Edition with a more dark and sinister tone) has my interest.”
