Planet of the Dead DVD Cover

By Mark
2 Entertain have recently released an image of the official cover for the upcoming Planet of the Dead DVD and it can be viewed above here on this site thanks to Doctor Who Online. Planet of the Dead is the latest episode of Doctor Who and it aired for the first time last Saturday at 6:45pm on BBC One. More information about the episode can be found here on the BBC's official Doctor Who website and this DVD's official synopsis can be viewed below;

Bionic Woman and Merlin star Michelle Ryan plays the mysterious Lady Christina de Souza who joins the Doctor on a bus-trip which takes a very unexpected detour into danger. British comedy star Lee Evans also joins the cast playing a character called Malcolm whose life becomes connected to the Doctor's under extraordinary circumstances and Noma Dumezweni returns as Captain Erisa Magambo - last seen helping save the world in Turn Left.

This DVD is scheduled for release on the twenty ninth of June and it will go on sale in all good entertainment stores at an RRP of £15.99. At the moment, it is unknown if 2 Entertain have plans to release Planet of the Dead in a DVD box set along with the remaining three specials but we'll keep you updated here on this site with all the latest information as soon as it becomes available. What do you think of Planet of the Dead's DVD cover and synopsis?

    Like the cover, but I'm going to hold off and wait for a box set, which I'm sure will arrive just before series five begins.

    £16 for one special? This is just a joke.

    Thanks for your comments everyone and welcome to the site anonymous. It's very likely that most stores won't sell it at that price and usually the single Doctor Who DVD releases go on sale in most places for just above £10. I love the cover too and think it's a great job done by whoever designed it. Personally, I think I'll buy this DVD and then wait for to see if there's a box set as the next special isn't until November :)

    Lol, hi mark, the weird thing is I've been reading this site ever since it's started. I think it's the best Doctor Who site there is. =)

    (btw,if you were wondering, I was the anonymous before)
