HERE (in brief, I love historicals, but this one eventually turns the characters into mere observers), and I've included there updated reviews of the two missing episodes turned into animation for this release. Spoiler: The animation is terrible, like they animated the reconstruction or a series of stills, and never tried to emulate the actual shooting style of the show. A frenetic, disjointed mess of images and movement. Very sad considering the slick Flash look of The Invasion's animated episode. Anywayyyy... The DVD also includes production note subtitles (but not on the two animated episodes, for some reason); a commentary track where expert Toby Hadoke interviews a rotating cast of participants, including Carole Ann Ford (Susan), several guest actors who held small parts, production assistant Tim Combe (who had to deal with the director's collapse), and missing episode hunters Phillip Morris and Paul Vanezis; the making of further makes use of William Russell (Ian); the rest is all galleries - pictures and animation. An okay, but underwhelming package.
a matter of record, so let's just look at the DVD. In terms of transfer quality, it could be a little better. The colors are murky even in broad daylight, especially early on. Chris Carter and director Rob Bowman provide a commentary track, and they have a lot of production stories to tell. Plus, they really don't shy away from pointing out the film's flaws, where they might have done better and failed due to lack of time or insight. The making of documentary is where other elements of the production, including the film's stars, get to say their piece. It's a good length and does a fair job of showing how sequences were achieved and what the particulars thought of the story. Perhaps the "extra footage" touted on the DVD box is meant to be the behind the scenes stuff from that documentary, because there really isn't an extra that's so labeled.
