Doctor Who "Terror Of The Zygons" Fourth Doctor Time Capsule

BBC Worldwide has revealed what that cryptic Fourth Doctor teaser trailer was all about – a special, limited edition release of the Tom Baker Doctor Wh o story “Terror Of The Zygons” (aka, the one with the Loch Ness Monster) which contains exclusive content and memorabilia from Tom Baker’s era. This includes a newly-commissioned interview with the man himself.

Alongside the interview, the set contains an advance vanilla version of the restored “Terror Of The Zygons”, set to get a more complete DVD release later this year. Telling the tale of shape-shifting aliens attempting to colonise the Earth, this four-parter introduces the monsters who are set to return in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special.

With a limited run of 5,000 units, The Fourth Doctor Time Capsule also includes:

• An exclusive post-regenerative Fourth Doctor action figure, wearing Jon Pertwee’s trademark frill-fronted shirt
• A Fourth Doctor sonic screwdriver
• An audio version of classic Tom Baker story “Genesis Of The Daleks”
• The novel “Tomb Of Valdemar” by Simon Messingham, set during the Fourth Doctor’s search for the Key to Time.
• Art cards of all the Fourth Doctor’s companions.
• A letter from Tom Baker himself.

The Fourth Doctor Time Capsule will be released on 29 July.
