We really wanted to cover
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. There are quite a few too, including commentaries on four episodes, deleted scenes, and a piece following how writer Sarah Dollard penned “Trap Street”.

FRIGHTFEST PRESENTS WAVE 2 ( out now/ 7 March/ 14 March, VOD) sees the horror festival providing a digital showcase for another six features. Pick of the bunch ( and also one of just two which is “our” kind of fantastical horror) is the oddball, Lovecraftian Curtain, in which a nurse discovers a portal to another dimension behind her bathroom wall after several shower curtains disappear! Reminiscent of ’ 80s horror, it mixes horror and comedy rather well and features some decent monster effects. 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.
