‘The Promise’ (Blu-ray)


Please feel free to comment on my review.

At the time of this review, I’ve yet to see the Season 26 Blu-ray box set of ‘Doctor Who’. When I saw the announcement trailer for it back in September 2019, I was pretty excited. It was lovely to see Sophie Aldred back as Ace to advertise the trailer as well as hear Sylvester McCoy doing a voiceover.

It was so surreal to see Sophie back as Ace, having met her at conventions and having done a 4th Anniversary sketch for my blog with her recently. I like how the trailer depicted Ace as she is 30 years later. I also liked the tie-in to the A Charitable Earth charity Ace is in charge of during the trailer.

Russell T. Davies established Ace and the A Charitable Earth charity in ‘The Sarah Jane Adventures’ story ‘Death of the Doctor’. So it was nice to see it make a first appearance in this trailer. The trailer also has a montage of Ace and the Doctor travelling together during the Season 26 stories they were in.

Eventually, Ace has a visit from the Doctor since she hears the TARDIS arriving when in her open-window office in London. She sees a question mark handle behind a door and exclaims, “Wicked!” I wonder if this all ties into a future adventure Ace has, such as ‘Dark Universe’ or ‘At Childhood’s End’.

I was excited to see what was in store for the Season 26 Blu-ray box set in terms of extras. I was looking forward to seeing the ‘Behind the Sofa’ items, which features Sarah Sutton in them. 😀 The brand-new documentaries; extended edits of stories and ‘more’ seem exciting to look forward to. 😀
