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.
"You don't understand regeneration, Mel. It's a lottery, and I've drawn the short plank."
The Seventh Doctor's first adventure begins when the TARDIS crash-lands on the planet Lakertya. Suffering from post-regeneration amnesia, the Time Lord finds himself a guest of his old enemy, the evil biochemist known as the Rani. What links an asteroid composed of "strange matter" to the Rani's latest experiment? What are the hideous bat creatures that stalk the planet's surface? And why are there two Melanies?

Notable information Edit

  • "Loyhargil" is the name of the substance the Rani attempted to make in Time and the Rani. It is an anagram of "holy grail".
  • A woman crashed her car when she saw an Ice Warrior on Hampstead Heath during filming of The Ice Warriors.
  • The Time Lords fireballed the Earth and, using a magnetron, moved it and named it Ravlox. By the year 5 billion it had been returned and renamed Earth.
  • Michael Ferguson directed three Doctors over ten years.
