DOCTOR WHO: LEGEND OF THE SEA DEVILS
This weekend brings us Legend of the Sea Devils, introduced in 1972 in the Pertwee Era The Sea Devils, and last seen in 1984's Davison Era Warriors of the Deep.
Scripted by Ella Road and Chris Chibnall, this installment - Per Chibnall - is described thusly:
"Madam Ching is on a mission to track down the lost treasure of the Flor de la Mar, a ship that may have been washed up in the waters around the area where we start the story...She unleashes a terrifying evil that the Doctor has to help everyone deal with."
Some of these promos images suggest this one might have some nice production design / production value. 'Twould be lovely and fun if so, despite the Chibness of it all...
Somewhat off topic, but worthy of note all the same:
DR. WHO AND THE DALEKS and DALEKS' INVASION EARTH 2150 A.D. are both being released on 4K UHD in a few months - these are the Peter Cushing starring 1965 and 1966 films which serve as something of a reimagining of 'the Doctor' character, wrapped by decidedly Dalek-centric stories. These don't register as 'alternate universe' iterations of the Doctor/Dalek mythologies - more as 'reimaginings' or 'reinterpretations.'
If memory serves, the 1965 film is impressively colorful in a strangely stagey/Broadway sorta way - and the 1966 film is surprisingly 'real-world' and gritty. Both should make for excellent 4K masterings and presentations I should think. These two releases mark only the second and third issuance of DOCTOR WHO titles on 4K UHD, the only other at this time being 2017's Twice Upon a Time Christmas Special.
Here are images of both the collector's sets and the steenbok releases. BOTE that they are disparate releases - i.e. the steelbook designs don't come in the collector's sets and are different purchases/offerings.
Here are some links - there may well be others out there:

NOTE: if ordering through Zavvi - which is a reliable and trusted site in my experience - you may need to process your order through Chrome or some other browser, as the Zavvi sites don't always play well with Apple's Safari.
