For the first time on UK television, Horror Channel viewers will be able to watch re-mastered Doctor Who episodes that were only released on DVD by BBC Worldwide last year. There will be more from the Tom Baker and Jon Pertwee eras with additional stories featuring Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy.
Following the success of the Who on Horror season, that saw 30 classic Doctor Who stories broadcast on the Horror Channel, to over 3.8 million viewers since April, BBC Worldwide and the Horror Channel have agreed to an additional set of 17 re-mastered episodes, starting on Monday, 13 October.
The iconic adventures continue with Doctor Who and The Silurians, starring Jon Pertwee as the Doctor and his Edwardian roadster, Bessie. The series then leads into weekday double-bills in daytime and evening slots. Available to watch from October are such stories as Inferno, Carnival of Monsters, The Time Warrior, The Sontaran Experiment, Sunmakers, and The Greatest Show in the Galaxy.
