    I didnt see this mentioned anywhere, but the Restoration Team put up new pages for the 2005 releases of the old series:

    * The Horror of Fang Rock

    EDIT to include the extras from the BBFC:
    00:01:57:00 | HORROR OF FANG ROCK
    00:01:28:01 | STORYBOARD
    00:04:46:24 | THE ANTIQUE DOCTOR WHO SHOW

    Wonderful news! It always pleases me to hear how much effort is being put into bringing Doctor Who to DVD, not to mention the upcoming TV series, after so many years of disrespect it has recieved at the hands of the BBC.

    Now that I'll be finished with my big collections by the dawn of the new year (Farscape, Babylon 5, Buffy and Angel), I'm ready for all the Doctor Who DVDs they can throw at me. Bring 'em on!!!

    Yes, those three are good choices. I still hope we get that "Beginning" boxset next year. It would be good to come out with the new TV show, or shortly after.

    This just in:
    "Outpost Gallifrey has learned that the first two Doctor Who DVD releases in North America next year will be The Visitation starring Peter Davison and The Green Death starring Jon Pertwee, both due out from Warner Home Video/BBC Video on February 1, 2005. They are both expected to have the same extras as the UK version except for the addition of the "Who's Who" standard segment on US/Canada releases. We hope to have the cover illustrations later in the week, perhaps tomorrow."

    I wonder if any of the new series will be released to DVD in the second half of 2005.

    This might be of some help. It isn't R1 release dates by any means, but I've noticed that once something is released in R4, it's only a matter of time before we have a R1 announcement. Searching online, here's what I've found is already released in R4 and not in R1...

    The Visitation
    The Green Death
    The Leisure Hive
    "The Movie" AKA Fox's MFTV with Paul McGann
    Ghost Light

    Hopefully this means the latter three titles will be announced soon.

    My understanding is that the Doctor Who TV Movie can not be released in R1 because of rights issues. Was a BBC coproduction and they don't have rights to release it in the US. This was released in the UK a few years ago.

    The other titles were only released in the UK in 2004, so guess they will make in to the US shortly.
    I guess Pyramids of Mars was bumped up the list as it was a Tom Baker story so more marketable.

    I'd be amazed if not.

    Probably in the UK as well, since his Doctor was the only figure I could find for sale in the shops over there.

    The Movie has only been released in r2, not r4. Also, the r4 releases run about 4 months behind r2, so you may want to keep an eye on UK releases for an idea of what is coming to r1 some time into the future
