John Hurt isn’t the only Doctor Who Doctor that somehow got lost in the timestream. Before Chris Eccleston helped revive the series in 2005, there was another Ninth Doctor entirely, one that disappeared… until this week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases.
Did you like last season’s episode “Cold War”? Then you may have positive feelings about “The Ice Warriors,” when the Second Doctor first encountered the titular aliens. Note: Two episodes of the serial were lost, but have been reconstructed for this release.
This modern animated Who — previously released as a web series — gets collected for DVD. Released in 2003, it was supposed to be part of official Who continuity, but the TV show revival effectively wiped it out, along with the original ninth Doctor, who was voiced by eventual Whovillain Richard E. Grant.
