Good for you. "The War Games" is Pat Troughton era's masterpiece.
The War Lord just arrived...

I believe The War Games is the last complete Troughton story to be released. The rest of his era is incomplete episodes such as The Ice Warriors. I wish BBC Video would release another Lost In Time boxset so the remaining Hartnell/Troughton episodes can be seen.

I treated myself and received three complete Patrick Troughton era's episodes: "The Tomb of the Cybermen" (season 5) with Jamie and Victoria, "The Mind Robber" (season 6) and "The Seeds of Death" (the season 6 Ice Warriors return) with Jamie and Zoe. "The War Games" is clearly "the" masterpiece.

Have you watched all the extras on the The War Games yet? I was wondering what Devious, the short film with Jon Pertwee was like?

• Devious (dur. 12' 15") - for over a decade, a group of friends on England's south coast met on weekends to shoot an amateur Doctor Who film - 'Devious' - which takes place between the events of Patrick Troughton's swansong 'The War Games' and Jon Pertwee's introduction in 'Spearhead from Space', and features their own previously unknown incarnation of the Doctor. To segue back into 'Spearhead', the team decided to put up the money to employ Jon Pertwee for a day… in what was to become his last ever appearance as the Third Doctor. This feature also has a commentary from the production team.

I watched all the extras. "Devious" is an anecdotal joke. You won't miss anything, believe me.

The Dalek War Box-set - DVD details
News Dated: 21/8/2009

2|entertain have sent DWO some details for The Dalek War Box-set DVD release.

The Dalek War
Featuring: Jon Pertwee as The 3rd Doctor

Featuring two six-part Jon Pertwee adventures involving one of the Doctor’s greatest nemeses. Packed with a host of fantastic special features, this four-disc box set contains Frontier in Space and Planet of the Daleks.

Frontier in Space

When the TARDIS accidentally brings the Doctor and Jo aboard Earth cargo ship C982, they find it under attack. The crew perceive the Doctor, Jo and the attackers as Draconians, whose empire currently rivals Earth's for control of the galaxy. But the Doctor and Jo see only Ogrons - brutish, simian mercenaries who steal the cargo, including the TARDIS, and head off into space.

The Doctor's investigations take him to Earth, the Moon and then to Draconia itself. He discovers that the Ogrons are employed by his sworn enemy, the Master, who is attempting to provoke a war between the space empires. The Doctor suspects the scale of the plan is too grand for the Master, but even he is shocked to discover the identity of the far deadlier foe waiting in the wings...

Planet of the Daleks

Injured after a shoot-out between his old nemesis the Master and the Ogrons, slaves to the evil Daleks, the Doctor sends a message to the Time Lords, asking them to pilot his TARDIS and follow the Daleks to their new base. After he slips into a coma, it falls to his assistant Jo Grant to explore the planet where the TARDIS finally materialises. She meets a party of Thals and is left in hiding aboard their crashed spaceship while they go to the Doctor's aid. On his recovery, the Doctor learns of their mission to destroy a party of Daleks sent here to discover the native Spiridons' secret of invisibility.

Not only must the Doctor contend with the Daleks' new scheme, but he must try to stop them unleashing a plague that will exterminate all organic life. When a rescue ship of Thals arrive, they bring with them darker news still - somewhere on Spiridon 12,000 Daleks are waiting to emerge and take what they believe is their rightful place as the Universe's supreme beings!

Up until now, the UK versions were (I think) encoded for R2 as well as R4. The BBC have made the extras standard no matter what region they have been released in. I don't think there will be any difference in the R1 releases. It just applies to the Australian market.
