DOC­TOR WHO SE­RIES NINE ( 9 March, Blu- ray/ DVD) this is­sue, but as discs weren’t made avail­able in time we’ve de­cided to do it next time so we can look at the ex­tras in de­tail.

Visit www. fright­fest­p­re­sents.com for more de­tails on this and the other ti­tles in the slate: Emelie, Land­mine Goes Click, Last Girl Stand­ing, The Les­son and The Un­fold­ing.
