Doctor Who reveals another forgotten Doctor in This Week’s DVDs

John Hurt isn’t the only Doctor Who Doctor that somehow got lost in the timestream. Before Chris Eccleston helped revive the series in 2005, there was another Ninth Doctor entirely, one that disappeared… until this week’s DVD and Blu-ray releases. Plus: shirtless superheroes, the fastest zombies on Earth, and more!

Arrow: The Complete First Season


The shockingly good superhero show comes to DVD. Join a bitter and often shirtless Oliver Queen as he comes back to Starling City to punish those men and women who have failed the city’s people, and slowly turns from a merciless vigilante to an actual hero.

World War Z


The troubled but surprisingly successful zombie movie starring Brad Pitt comes to a bare bones DVD. I was kind of hoping for a commentary track by author Max Brooks where he only muttered “What the fuck?!” to himself for the film’s 116-minute run time, but oh well.

Grimm Season 2


Grimm got a lot better in its sophomore season, as more mythology of the Grimm world came to light, and more people learned about the Wesen so Nick didn’t hide everything from everybody all the time. Now, if only they didn’t take so long to figure out it’s a Wesen causing problems each week…

Doctor Who: The Ice Warriors


Did you like last season’s episode “Cold War”? Then you may have positive feelings about “The Ice Warriors,” when the Second Doctor first encountered the titular aliens. Note: Two episodes of the serial were lost, but have been reconstructed for this release.

Doctor Who: Scream of the Shalka


This modern animated Who — previously released as a web series — gets collected for DVD. Released in 2003, it was supposed to be part of official Who continuity, but the TV show revival effectively wiped it out, along with the original ninth Doctor, who was voiced by eventual Who villain Richard E. Grant.

Bless Me, Ultima


An odd but interesting-sounding movie about a young boy in World War II who gets caught in a battle between a good witch/healer, a family of evil magic users, and Catholicism.

Adventure Time: Jake the Dad


16 random episodes, but it comes with a Jake hat, so it has that going for it.

Naruto Shippuden: The Movie – The Lost Tower


Naruto has a big adventure that’s well-animated and has absolutely nothing to do with the main storyline.

Daddy I’m a Zombie


This is some kind of CG kids’ movie, and not a very specialized and completely disturbing porn movie. Just FYI!

Day of the Dead: Collector’s Edition


The sequel to Romero’s Dawn of the Dead may not be be the masterpiece Dawn was, but it’s still a damn sight better than 95% of all zombie movies coming out nowadays. This extras-laden release includes commentaries by George Romero, SFX genius Tom Savini, behind-the-scenes footage, and more.

The Crying Dead


I’m guessing this is one of the 95% I just mentioned.

Sex: How It Works


Just in case you were curious!
