The DVD is part of the classic series range, and will be an addition to classic seventh Doctor DVD releases; Battlefield, Ghost Light, The Curse of Fenric and Survival. The episode featured on the DVD was shown during November of 1987 when Sylvester McCoy was playing The Doctor. The story, consisting of three episodes, as well as starring the wonderful Sylvester McCoy, stars Bonnie Langford as Melanie Bush, The Doctor’s companion of the 1980’s era. The episode also stars special guests; Don Henderson, Belinda Mayne, Richard Davies, Stubby Kaye, Morgan Deare, David Kinder, Martyn Geraint, Sara Griffiths, Hugh Lloyd, Ken Dodd, Brian Hibbard, Johnny Dennis, Leslie Meadows, Anita Graham, Clive Michael Condon, Richard Mitchley, Tim Scott, Jessica McGough, Amy Osborn, Laura Collins, Carley Joseph, Robin Aspland, Keff McCulloch, Justin Myers, Ralph Samins, Tracey Wilson and Jodie Wilson.

 Delta and The Bannerman is a much loved story taken from the twenty forth season of Doctor Who. It was the one hundred and forty sixth episode of Doctor Who and was thew third story to star Sylvester McCoy as The Doctor. It sees The Doctor and Mel visit a 1959 holiday camp in Wales, but after a trip on a spacebus, a Chimeron queen named Delta also arrives at the campsite. Meanwhile Delta is being persuaded by the evil Gavrok and his Bannerman to commit genocide. This story marks the first appearance of The Doctor’s question mark umbrella, which now has become a popular memory.

The DVD will be sold in a hard classic series DVD case, with the same design as each of the classic series DVDs. The DVD, complete with the total of three twenty five minute episodes plus a host of splendid special features, will be a great addition to any collections of the classic series DVDs and will keep fans occupied with a new story for many nights.

The DVD will be released on 22nd June 2009.
