Unit Files Box Set Release


Coming to DVD on January 12th is the Unit Files Box Set, a 3 disc, 2 story set featuring offerings from both the Third and Fourth Doctors.

The two serials contained in the set are the 1974 Third Doctor serial Invasion of the Dinosaurs and the 1975 Fourth Doctor serial The Android Invasion.

The selected stories have caused debate amongst fans about whether they were the best candidates to feature in a 'UNIT' release, but with so few stories remaining unreleased they are possibly the most fitting without rereleasing older stories again.

The set is available from next Thursday, and Amazon are currently offering the set HERE for £22.47, though prices around the web may vary depending on where you purchase. Extras on the release include:
