Looks like they're skipping all the way to year four of Pertwee's five years.

"Jon Pertwee’s complete fourth season as The Doctor in Doctor Who is coming to Blu-ray in this brand new collection! In 1973, Doctor Who celebrated its tenth anniversary with a very special story reuniting the first two Doctors – William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton – with Jon Pertwee’s then-current Doctor. The Three Doctors kicks off an explosive, colorful series of adventures across all of time and space as the Doctor and Jo Grant (Katy Manning) encounter the rogue Time Lord Omega, the terrifying Drashigs, the noble Draconians, fearsome Ogrons, deadly Daleks and slithering giant maggots. This season also includes the final appearance of Roger Delgado as the Doctor’s arch nemesis The Master, plus adventures alongside Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney) and UNIT.

With all 26 episodes newly remastered from the best available sources, this Blu-ray box set also contains extensive and exclusive special features which include:

♦ A brand new feature-length documentary examining the Third Doctor’s Era, with archival contributions from Jon Pertwee, Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks plus all-new interviews with ♦ Katy Manning, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, presented by Matthew Sweet.
♦ Updated special effects and surround sound mix for Planet of the Daleks.
♦ Five new instalments of Behind the Sofa, featuring Katy Manning, Richard Franklin (Captain Yates) and John Levene (Sergeant Benton), along with 21st century Doctor Who panel ♦ Phil Collinson (Producer/Executive Producer), Pete McTighe (Writer) and Joy Wilkinson (Writer).
♦ Looking for Lennie, a documentary investigating the life of director Lennie Mayne.
♦ Keeping up with the Jones’, which sees Katy Manning with Stewart Bevan (Cliff Jones) pay a return visit to the Welsh locations from The Green Death.
♦ Plus: a repeat omnibus of The Green Death unseen since Christmas 1973, rare Panopticon convention footage, Blu-ray trailer, HD photo galleries plus scripts, production files and rare documentation provided as PDFs.
♦ The six-disc box set also includes hours of extensive special features previously released on DVD including two episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures that saw Katy Manning’s Jo ♦Jones meet the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith)."

Seasons 7-9 aren't suitable for blu-ray due to their archival nature.

Love me some Jon Pertwee. This is not my favorite Third Doctor season overall, but The Green Death is certainly a personal favorite of mine, so will happily grab this sucker when it comes out. And the new Pertwee era retrospective documentary is reportedly 90 minutes.

And Season 11 has that not-so-great-condition "Invasion (of the Dinosaurs)" Episode 1.

The whole reason Season 10 was chosen to be the first Pertwee is that of his five seasons, it has the smallest number of 'problematic' episodes (yes, I know, "Planet of the Daleks" 3, but that had a decent restoration).

My thought is if Season 11 comes up next, the Restoration Team will hire Babelcolor to do a hand colorization of Invasion 1 like he did on Mind of Evil.

I picked up the UK set from Amazon UK about a month ago. (They call it Season 10) There aren't as many new features on this set as the Tom Baker and Davidson sets. It does have the Omnibus version of "The Green Death" and the Jo Grant appearance on The Sara Jane Adventures. There is also a new feature on the Pertwee era of the show. Those are the biggest additions I'd say. The Behind The Sofa features were not as good as in previous sets. These seem much shorter. I'm still glad I bought it. I think this was the strongest season of the Third Doctor.
