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.
"He's a genius, and we can use him. The future of the Daleks may well depend upon the Doctor."

"Did he say he was going to change what it means to be human?"
The Doctor is immediately suspicious of Professor Lazarus, so he and Martha get dressed up to investigate what's going on at a grand scientific launch. Neither of them could have guessed, however, that the "mad" professor has the power to turn back the clock...
