Seeing the recent releases of complete classic Doctor Who seasons on Blu-Ray and the recent release of Jon Pertwee's Season 10, i am now hopeful that we may get a release of Season 7 in the near future.
I was recently watching The Silurians and noticed that the colour appears to be a lower quality than many of the other restored serials.
I was wondering if The Silurians could be subject to the chroma dot recovery process. I am aware that some of the black and white telerecordings did not have adequate chroma dot information in order for this process to be utilised, as such i am wondering if anyone knows whether this process could/would be used on the existing 16mm black and white telerecordings for any future release of the serial.
The colour restoration of the early colour release serials was done before chroma dot recovery was availiable, they were doing it on the stories that only had Black & White, or the colour banding fault from the betamax recordings. im sure a overlay process could be used on the serials where the original colour restoration is overlaid with the chroma dot recovery, a similar method has been used with a high res B&W recording and a lower res colour recordning, i think its The Time Monster Ep 6 from memory.
