1 day and counting… The Reign of Terror, The Tenth Planet

reign_VJarttenthplanet_VJartThe countdown to 50 is nearing its end with the last of the First Doctor releases: The Reign of Terror and The Tenth Planet.

Click here to download the cover from Velvet Jacket, and read notes about its creation here.

The William Hartnell era is now complete, more or less. I was hoping to have the updated The Aztecs cover ready as well but I’m still working on it (lots of feathery costumes to cut out) and didn’t want to rush it unnecessarily. It should be available shortly. Other than that, I may take another look at The Dalek Invasion of Earth some time as it’s the only early release that hasn’t been revisited and I’d like to improve the photo of the Doctor at the very least.

Thanks to everyone who has commented on the covers over the years, and to those who actually choose to use them — I’m truly flattered. So with just a few loose ends and a handful of upcoming releases to go (rumours notwithstanding), stage one of the site is nearly completed. The question then will be whether to produce DVD-style covers for the missing stories. Are these something you would use? Does anyone keep their soundtrack CDs in DVD cases in order to have a uniform Who collection?

    Fantastic covers! I’ve just started buying the DVD’s (having sold my VHS collection a few years back) and am intending to use your covers. Re missing stories, I would love to have DVD style covers for the missing story soundtracks – they would then fit in with the rest of the collection and make it complete! Keep up the good work 🙂

    Yes – I too keep my soundtracks in DVD style cases and would love to have matching VJ covers! Thank you for all your hard work over the years…

    Thanks for all your work on these, they are excellent!
    ..and another vote for matching covers for the soundtrack CDs here, too.

    I am such an obsessive fan, I not only keep the soundtracks in DVD cases, but I re-buy two-disc (or three-disc) DVD stories just so I can get the silver cases to match! Yes, I am insane.
