DVD release (with cover blurb) Edit

Each issue came with a DVD release covering two episodes.
Reversible DVD sleeves enabled the collector to display one of two designs featuring either the Doctor and his enemies or his companions.
"Is someone trying to take over Britain's shops?"
It's just another day for Rose Tyler — until she's menaced by shop dummies that come alive and meets a man who will change her life forever, the Doctor! Together they discover an alien intelligence lurking below the Thames who is planning world domination! Can Rose and the Doctor save her mum, her boyfriend, and the rest of planet Earth?
"Earth death in five minutes"
The Doctor's strange blue box, the TARDIS, can travel through space and time, and Rose jumps on board. He takes her to the year Five Billion and to Platform One, a space station orbiting Earth. It's the day when the Sun finally expands and consumes the planet — but there's a saboteur on board who wants to make sure that there are no survivors at the end of the world...
