Quick guess - the Spearhead From Space DVD will be among the pledge premiums.
The first color story. The one that changed the rules of the series. Modern day Earth. Modern day threat. A companion who may be as smart as the Doctor. And a classic car. The era of the 3rd Doctor begins. With Nicholas Courtney as The Brigadier.
