Editions:  UK UK (DVD) | Australia Australia (DVD) | US US (DVD)
Note:Subsequently re-released in UK & Australia as part of The Complete Davros Collection box set. The "contractual and clearance" edits mentioned on the UK cover blurb refer to music by The Jimi Hendrix Experience in the background of one of the DJ scenes which had to be redubbed with other music for copyright clearance reasons, for all countries' releases. (For the same reason, a similar redubbing previously had to be made to the VHS edition.)

Cover blurb:
The Doctor and Peri arrive on the planet Necros, home of Tranquil Repose, a funeral home for the galaxy's elite. But is this the Doctor's own final resting place? And why do the Daleks guard the inner sanctums of the perpetually interred? Perhaps the Great Healer will have the answers...
