In 1983, BBC Enterprises tested the water of the growing homevideo market by releasing Revenge of the Cybermen to the viewing public at a cost of just 40 (equivalent to around 'just' 95 today), allowing them to watch it again and again and again...

And the world hasn't looked back since.

BBV produces professional, but unlicensed dramas, and some documentaries, aimed at the Doctor Who market. They are slowly but surely reissuing their back catalogue on DVD. With the exception of The Doctors and The Airzone Solution, these are all double-sided region-free discs, with PAL on one side and NTSC on the other.


2005: Doctor Loo and the Phaleks
2005: Abducted by Daleks
2006/7: Doctor Screw

In 2005, two straight-to-DVD porn films were released by different companies. They are detailed here - please note that while we have made every effort to avoid details that might offend sensitive eyes, these are pornographic productions and as such a certain amount of this is unavoidable. You have been warned...

A year later, The Adult Channel in the UK screened a spoof series entitled Doctor Screw, which is currently being released across a series of discs.

Other Spinoff videos and DVDs

We have set up this single page to detail videos produced by companies that only have a small range of Doctor Who related releases. These releases are all aimed at the Doctor Who fan market, but are not officially licensed by the BBC. Click here.
