DVD release (with cover blurb) Edit

Each issue came with a DVD release.
Reversible DVD sleeves enabled the collector to display one of two designs featuring either the Doctor and his enemies or his companions.
"Listen to that! It's the sound of a planet screaming out its rage!"
Professor Stahlman's drilling project is going to crack open the Earth's crust and release a gas that will provide the planet with a new source of power. At least that's the plan. When the drill unearths a mysterious green slime that transforms them around it into snarling primitive monsters, it's clear something has gone wrong — but Stahlman keeps on drilling! As people start to die and UNIT loses control, all eyes turn to the Doctor. But the Time Lord is trapped in a parallel universe where freedom is an illusion and the end of the world is just around the corner...

Notable information Edit
