BBC Worldwide has announced that the Patrick Troughton story The Enemy of the World will get a special edition release on March 19th in the UK. This is one of the stories that was found and released in 2013 but that release was just a DVD with no extras. Now five years later the fans will finally get a special DVD release of this once missing story. Hopefully we will be getting a special release of The Web of Fear this year with an animated episode three. The details for The Enemy of the World Special Edition are below and available for pre order on Amazon.
Even though all episodes were restored in 2013 for the previous DVD release, Peter Crocker from the Restoration Team is using advances in technology since then to go over each one with a fine tooth comb to ensure they are now presented in the best possible quality for this special edition.
