SYNOPSIS

A WHOLE NEW WORLD OF HURT!

He was a monster, impossible to control, too dangerous to ignore. So Earth’s mightiest heroes exiled him into outer space.  But now the Incredible Hulk crash lands on the distant planet Sakaar, ruled by the tyrannical Red King.  Sold into slavery, Hulk becomes the planet’s mightiest gladiator—but his new masters get more than they bargained for when he forges a bond of brotherhood with his fellow fighters: crafty insectoid Miek, ruthless rock-man Korg, ex-shadow priest Hiroim, and the noble-born rebel Elloe.  Unlike Earth, the desperate people of Sakaar believe a monster is just what they need.  But will the Hulk be the one to save their world… or destroy it?

New York - The finale to the era of David Tennant as the Tenth Doctor is one of the most eagerly anticipated adventures in the history of Doctor Who. As the Doctor in this illustrious series - which has been recognized by Guinness World Records as "the most successful sci-fi series on television" and "TV's longest running sci-fi show" - Tennant has proven to be a favorite among fans and critics alike. Executive produced by Russell T Davies (Torchwood, Queer as Folk) and Julie Gardner (Torchwood, Life on Mars), these epic specials feature guest stars John Simm, Timothy Dalton, Catherine Tate, Bernard Cribbins and Lindsay Duncan.

On February 2, 2010, the BBC brings to DVD and Blu-ray two different releases packed with captivating bonus materials - the single-disc Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars and the 2-disc Doctor Who: The End of Time, Parts One & Two.

In stores the same day, BBC releases the 5-disc Doctor Who: The Specials Collection on DVD and Blu-ray, which brings together all five action-packed specials that bid farewell to Tennant - Doctor Who: The Next Doctor, Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead, Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars and Doctor Who: The End of Time, Parts One & Two. This must-own collector's item for all sci-fi fans contains hours of special features including a new "Doctor Who Confidential" for Doctor Who: The Next Doctor that is not available anywhere else.

Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars received rave reviews in the UK, with The Times calling it "a big-budget, knock-yer-socks-off blockbuster" and the Guardian exclaiming "it's a belter, a watery nightmare - scary, moving, relevant, believable." The special finds the Doctor and Adelaide Brooks (Lindsay Duncan, Alice in Wonderland [2010], Rome) - his cleverest and most strong-minded companion - confronting terror on the Red Planet. Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars premieres December 19, 9:00 pm ET/PT on BBC AMERICA.

Following this chilling tale is the Davies-penned finale, Doctor Who: The End of Time, Parts One & Two. The Doctor's oldest enemy - the Master (John Simm, Life on Mars) - returns alongside former companion Donna (Catherine Tate, The Catherine Tate Show) and old favorite Wilf (Bernard Cribbins, Frenzy), as the entire human race faces its last ever Christmas...unless the Doctor can save the day. The final two specials premiere over the holiday season, starting December 26 on BBC AMERICA.

This slick re-imagination of Doctor Who, created by Russell T Davies, puts a fresh spin on the adventures of the iconic Time Lord and his feisty companions - who travel across the universe to protect Earth from dangerous aliens and terrifying monsters. Davies and Tennant are passing the baton to Steven Moffat (Doctor Who, Jekyll, Coupling) and actor Matt Smith, who will play the Eleventh Doctor in a new season of the re-imagined series premiering in 2010 on BBC AMERICA.

SYNOPSES:

DOCTOR WHO: THE WATERS OF MARS

Doctor Who: The Waters of Mars is a dark, scary thriller that sees the Doctor land on the planet Mars, at a base in peril. A creeping infection beneath the Martian surface threatens not only the human race, but also the Doctor's most fundamental beliefs. Together with Adelaide Brooke - the base's commander - the Doctor must defeat a seemingly unstoppable menace before it can reach Earth, and wipe out mankind. The Doctor must fight not only the water but destiny itself… when the prophecy about his future begins to resonate. Is his song about to come to an end?

DOCTOR WHO: THE END OF TIME, PART ONE

It's the Tenth Doctor's final journey but his psychotic nemesis the Master has been reborn, on Christmas Eve. With both determined to cheat death, the battle ranges from the wastelands of London to the mysterious Immortality Gate, while the alien race Ood warn of an even greater danger approaching, as a terrible shadow falls across the entire Universe. Guest stars include John Simm, Bernard Cribbins, Catherine Tate, Timothy Dalton, David Harewood and June Whitfield.

DOCTOR WHO: THE END OF TIME, PART TWO

The Doctor faces the end of his life as the Master's plans hurtle out of control. With the sound of drums growing louder, and an ancient trap closing around the Earth, the Doctor and Wilf must fight alone. But sacrifices must be made, and the deadly prophecy warns: "He will knock four times." Guest stars include John Simm, Bernard Cribbins, Catherine Tate, Timothy Dalton, David Harewood and June Whitfield.

HELLBOY ANIMATED: SWORD OF STORMS / BLOOD & IRON on DVD

From Amazon:

Sword of Storms

In the first animated feature from Director Tad Stones (Buzz Lightyear of Star Command), and Creative Producers Mike Mignola (creator of HELLBOY comics) and Guillermo del Toro (writer/director of the HELLBOY feature films), a folklore professor becomes unwittingly possessed by the ancient Japanese demons of Thunder and Lightning. But when The Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defense dispatches a team of agents to investigate, a cursed samurai sword sends Hellboy (Ron Perlman) to a supernatural dimension of ghosts, monsters and feudal mayhem. Now while pyrokinetic Liz Sherman (Selma Blair) and fishboy Abe Sapien (Doug Jones) battle one very pissed-off dragon, a lost and cranky Hellboy must find his way home. Even if he can survive the perilous journey, how much crap does a guy have to put up with from the two most vengeful and ferocious spirits of Japanese legend?

Blood and Iron

When Hellboy, Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien are assigned to investigate the ghostinfested mansion of a publicity-hound billionaire, they uncover a plot to resurrect a beautiful yet monstrous vampire from Professor Bruttenholm’s past. But before they can stop her bloodbath, Hellboy will have to battle harpies, hellhounds, a giant werewolf and even the ferocious goddess Hecate herself. How much crap does a guy have to take from a Hungarian Blood Countess before he and his surrogate father can avenge the souls of the damned? It’s going to take more than just a horde of very pissed-off demons for our heroes to see the light in this animated adventure from Creative Producers Guillermo Del Toro (writer/director of the HELLBOY feature films) and Mike Mignola (creator of HELLBOY comics).
