Doctor Who: The Collection continues its quest to build up a complete library of Doctor Who on Blu-ray with The Complete Series 14

In 1976, Doctor Who took a dramatic new turn. It electrified audiences with changes in format, companion and appearance of the TARDIS. Season 14 saw the departure of the Doctor’s long-term companion Sarah Jane Smith, and the introduction of Leela. The season contains some of Tom Baker’s most iconic serials, with intrepid investigations in Victorian London, deadly robots in a murderous whodunit, a return to the Doctor’s home planet of Gallifrey, and one of the saddest goodbyes in Doctor Who history. Now, thanks to The Collection, you can soon own it in glorious HD. Along with a host of new retrospective extras.

Producer Phillip Hinchliffe led Doctor Who through a creative high, joined by Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and Louise Jameson as the Doctor’s fierce new companion Leela. Season 14 also featured some of the show’s most beloved guests stars, including Tim Pigott-Smith, Stephen Thorne, Peter Pratt, Pamela Salem, David Collings, Christopher Benjamin and Trevor Baxter.

To refresh your memories, the stories included in Season 14 are:

  • The Masque of Mandragora
  • The Hand of Fear
  • The Deadly Assassin
  • The Face of Evil
  • The Robots of Death
  • The Talons of Weng-Chiang
