It's a 187 you WANT to see - this week's list of Tuesday's new DVDs (176) and Blu-ray (11). If you're inclined, we not only have the listings, but also links to relevant IMDb listings, tv.com listings, movie websites, trailers, and all sorts of other fun things to click. CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK

Starting off with the March 3rd...

PICK OF THE WEEK:
Doctor Who: The Key to Time (Special Collector's Edition) (The W at Amazon) (BBC, 1978-9) Now it's true that this is a rerelease of sorts, but the deal is the one that originally came out was US only and didn't get the TLC, restoration, and bitchin' commentary tracks that the UK got when they did THEIR release as part of their regular schedule. So this is an American version of that UK release, and probably worth a double dip if you're a fan at all of Tom Baker, Mary Tamm, Valentine Dyall, K-9 Mark II OR this particular season in general. And I am!

If you DON'T want to spring for the entire season, however, you can pick your favourite individual story, as they're all offered separately:
Doctor Who: The Ribos Operation
Doctor Who: The Pirate Planet One of the rare Douglas Adams authored, and not coincidentally one of the funniest
Doctor Who: The Stones of Blood
Doctor Who: The Androids of Tara
Doctor Who: The Power of Kroll
Doctor Who: The Armageddon Factor Six episodes (the others are four apiece) - featuring a pre-Romana'd up Lalla Ward
