* 16 1/2 minutes of outtakes.
* Radio Times Listings.
* Photo gallery.
* Isolated music score.
* 9 minutes of extended and deleted scenes including alternate openings and endings of part 1.
* BBC commercials for "Survival."
* Subtitles and Info text that can play during each part.
* "Cat Flap" Parts 1 and 2- A 62 minute making of "Survival" that discusses how Ace matures, how "Cat Flap" was the original title of "Survival," and the complications of the yellow contact lenses, motorbikes, and the funky mechanical cat.
* A commentary track by Sylvester McCoy, Sophie Aldred, and Andrew Cartmel. To be honest, this is a quiet and rather flat commentary track. There's a lot of ass-kissing and discussions about crane shots, lack of money, and so forth. It lacks the humor and fun of the Tom Baker commentaries.
* Commentary by the editor of "Doctor Who" magazine and 3 fans (who won a contest)on part 3 only- Now this is a great commentary track! Everyone seems to be having the time of their life as the pick apart the episode. The highlight- talking about how sad it is that the Master has resorted to recruiting youth club members.
* "Destiny of the Doctors"- 14 minutes of video game footage of Anthony Ainley.
* "Little Girl Lost"- A splendid 16 1/2 minute featurette on the evolution of the character Ace. Interviews with Sophie Aldred and writers are included.
* "Search Out Science"- An educational school program that discusses the shape of the Earth and Moon, etc. K-9, Ace, and McCoy's Doctor narrate and appear in the program. If I saw this program at school as a child I would have jumped up with excitement.
* Endgame- A 44 minute look at the end of "Doctor Who." The highlight includes discussions of episodes and story arcs that could have occurred in season 27 such as Ace becoming a Time Lord and the return of the Ice Warriors.
"Survival" may not be one of the best episodes, but it's worth picking up to see how the classic series came to an end. In addition, the DVD is jam-packed with extras that will delight Whovians everywhere.
