German Mediabook DVD cover to "Caves of Androzani" (Credit: Pandastorm Pictures)Die Höhlen von Androzani DVD (Credit: Pandastorm Pictures) German DVD distributer Pandastorm Pictures announced on their Facebook page the release of The Caves of Androzani ("Die Höhlen von Androzani") for the German market. The serial will be dubbed to German specifically for this release, as no German dub exists for any story before The Twin Dilemma, with the exception of The Five Doctors.

The Caves of Androzani has never been broadcasted on German television. In the late 80's and early 90's German TV channel RTL Plus transmitted all serials featuring the seventh Doctor. In 1995 the channel VOX aired The Five Doctors and all serials featuring the sixth Doctor. All those stories have been released by Pandastorm Pictures on DVD boxed sets in the past few years.

There will be two different versions of Die Höhlen von Androzani:

  • Collectors Edition Mediabook: Limited and numbered to 1,500 copies. This edition looks like a book and will feature an extensive booklet and the English- and German-language soundtracks and subtitles. Also includes all special features that can be found on the UK Special Edition DVD. Release date: 25th August 2017
  • Regular Edition: Will be the same as the Mediabook, only in a standart DVD slip case. Release date: 13th October 2017
All Doctor Who DVD's by Pandastorm Pictures are usually code-free. The DVD is not available for pre-order yet.
