The Doctor and Ace are put to the ultimate test when the TARDIS materializes in Second World War England at a top-secret naval base. The army church, built on Viking graves, bears inscriptions calling for the wolves of Fenric to return for their treasure. Thereafter, evil will reign. Even as the Doctor translates the inscription, hideous corpses rise up from the sea, and the evil Fenric is now free to summon his wolves to a killing rampage.

Additional Features:

Doctor Who: The Curse of Fenric is presented in two versions on a truly remarkable two-disc set. Disc 1 contains the four original 25-minute episodes exactly as originally broadcast with stereo sound. Disc 2 offers a completely updated 103-minute version supervised by composer Mark Ayres and following director Nicholas Mallett's original cut. The episodes are edited like a feature film and incorporate approximately 10 minutes of extra story material. CGI effects have been added and the sound remixed into full Dolby Digital 5.1 by Mark Ayres using the original stereo sound elements and his music files. The result is a massive improvement over the original series' episodes.

Disc 1 also includes an informative commentary with Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred, and Nicholas Parsons and an isolated score. There is the usual information text, scored photo gallery and subtitles for the episodes and the commentary. "Modeling the Dead" shows Sue Moore and Stephen Mansfield making the Haemovore masks; "Claws and Effects" shows the BBC Special Effects unit on location; also included are 20 minutes of highlights from the 1990 Nebula 90 SF convention with Aldred, Ayres, writer Ian Briggs, Tomek Bork, Joann Kenny, and others, while "Take Two" is a four-minute piece on the story presented by Phillip Schofield. Disc 2 also features "Shattering the Chains" (an excellent analysis of the show by Briggs), "Recutting the Runes" (a fascinating interview with Mark Ayres on preparing the special edition), and a good interview with costume designer Ken Trew. --Gary S Dalkin
