Doctor Who spin-off ‘Downtime’ is coming to DVD

Downtime,  set in the WHOniverse and originally released on video back in 1995, starring  Nicholas Courtney, Elisabeth Sladen, Deborah Watling and Jack Watling who reprise their roles as Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart, Sarah Jane Smith, Victoria Waterfield and Professor Edward Travers respectively in this 70 minute adventure.

Downtime is released on DVD on Monday 16 November and is an unofficial sequel to the Second Doctor serials ‘The Abominable Snowmen’ and ‘The Web of Fear’. Extras will include ‘Behind the Lens’, a behind the scenes look at the production with never before seen footage, and ‘Post Production’, a glimpse into the editing, sound and visual effects work.


“We follow The Brigadier and Sarah Jane Smith of UNIT who investigate New World University; a sinister school run by old enemies Victoria Waterfield and Professor Travers. The technology obsessed University holds a gateway to Earth made by classic foe the ‘Great Intelligence’.

“Fighting alone this time – without their famous time-travelling scientific advisor – The Brigadier and Sarah Jane are hard pressed to decide who is friend or foe as they search for a missing Locus, which binds the Intelligence’s power. The battle is broadened when the Brigadier’s own family is threatened and UNIT faces a powerful new breed of Yeti!”

 will be available to buy from 16th November 2015. Priced at £14.99
