So ... uh ... can anyone tell me why "The Wheel in Space" is currently up for pre-order on Aamazon? I've literally heard NOTHING about this on any Doctor Who news sites. Not even rumors.

Will it be animated? Will it just be the same recon version that was advertised on the Britbox streaming service? Will it be a crap-job like "Underwater Menace" was?

And why is it being offered for preorder when the Special Edition for "Enemy of the World" isn't anywhere to be found in Region 1?!?!?

Question questions questions .... I need answers!!

Very Happy

In the Daily Mirror recently there was a brief article on what the next animated DVD releases could be. All of The Macra Terror and the missing episodes of The Wheel in Space are apparently the next to be animated. It is slightly understandable why these would be next. They already have the assets to the Season 4 characters (minus Jamie). I'd have thought they would have animated two from the same season. But I suppose they think that Wheel in Space would be a better seller than The Faceless Ones or The Highlanders. I suppose if they do them in pairs next they will join up a popular or important story with one that is less popular!

Don't get too excited. This is just a photosnap reconstruction, not animation. Info here: https://twitter.com/themindrobber/status/1022239725850120193

Oh I got so excited by the thought of it being animated and then the cold hard reality of the situation set in. Oh well.

Many thanks for the info though, amckinney.

Further question: I've seen the Loose Cannon recon and they use a lot of nice CGI animation. Did they do that for the Britbox version as well?

This is not an official anybody, its just a guy on twitter, and besides people misguide truth all the time, so until someone official clears all this up, I don't believe a word of it.

I think what this "just a guy on Twitter" says is more likely than an animation. For a start, this title has not been listed on the UK site. If this were being animated, it would be released in R2 (and, likely before R1). This is only a US release so far. It's been suggested this is a US exclusive (like the 3D "Dark Water" was).

I see absolutely no reason to think this will be completed with animation...unless a couple of episodes have been returned that no-one knows about.
