TV Movie on VHS

Between 1996 and 1998, the Movie was released on rental or sell-through VHS (published by MCA/Universal/CIC Video, sometimes through a local distributor) in several countries that did not screen the Movie on TV. The tapes were either (S)ubtitled or (D)ubbed. In most cases, the title was simply "Doctor Who" (using the Movie's logo on the box cover), but some countries gave the Film an alternative cover title (see the merchandise sections in the relevant country profiles for cover slicks and further details):

Intriguingly, in some of the tape dubs (notably the German, Spanish and Czech) there are no Dalek voices in the pre-credits scene! (Is this because there were rights restrictions regarding use of the Daleks so they had to be omitted from foreign editions of the tape, or was it simply a matter of the companies that recorded the new soundtracks electing not to bother attempting to reproduce the few lines of 'mechanised' sound used in the English original?)

Rights issues were eventually resolved, and the 2-disc Special Edition DVD Doctor Who The Movie was released in North America on 8 February 2011.
