E-Space In January

The cover and information for a new DVD next year has been released. It is the E-Space trilogy, and contains all three stories from the set, which are “Full Circle”, “Sate of Decay” and “Warriors Gate”. They all feature the fourth Doctor, played by Tom Baker, with companions Romana, K9 and Adric. The original broadcast of the episodes was from October 1980 and January 1981. Adric came in this trilogy, as he originally lived in E-Space, and Romana, along with K9, sadly left the programme, with a new life in E-Space. You can view the complete information on the special features below. The full cover can be seen here.
