      I reckon it’ll be a recovered version IF it’s not animation. I don’t think they’ll put the Brit-box telesnaps on DVD, unless it’s only for the one episode.

      yes its re-releases (with slight and major tweeks or variants) of the last 3 sets, they have sold so well apparently as to justify a second run although i personally have slight concerns over this.

      I feel In part good sales were driven by the social media frenzy (and the goodwill of posters letting people know where stuff was) and the fact they were all good sets but i don’t see that happening to the same degree this time.

      The B&m page was the largest visited page this year (Barbie is first believe it or not)

      Even though we know what the Tardis set is its clear to me they don’t want us talking about it or in fact any of this.

    • Anonymous

      October 22nd, 2018 - 12:12pm

      Oh dear another 6000 of each of the sets we’ve already had, they might be shelf warmers. They’ll make up for it though with the new dr & Tardis set.

    • booboo

      October 22nd, 2018 - 12:16pm

      Not so sure on that one

      i expect at least one figure in each set maybe a major variant, but it would have to be really good for people to buy over again.

      Possibly a packaging change to the new logo, that will need to happen at some stage moving forward

    • Judooning

      October 22nd, 2018 - 12:54pm

      Trying to think what the variants could be for each set.

      11th Dr set – Hatted 11? But then that would require cost to alter the packaging to for him in. So possible another Amy repaint from the lodger or cold blood.

      12th Dr set – A black coat 12?

      4th Dr set – That’s a tricky one

    • mick

      October 22nd, 2018 - 1:41pm

      Hardly sold any of the ones with have in the last few weeks so don’t think getting more with a slight change is a good idea

    • The Outcast

      October 22nd, 2018 - 1:55pm

      11th Doctor set: guessing a Clara repaint, but maybe another Amy?

      12th Doctor set: maybe a grey coat 12 from the Extremis flashbacks

      70’s set: huh… maybe an Auton variant? I believe one of the Spearhead ones had a slightly different scarf.

      I think its the announcement time that’s waiting for approval most likely down to BBC studios wanting intervals between releases, could be there is more than one variant not seen on screen yet, could be anything

      the product itself must have already been approved and in production if the due dates are right

      we know of other stuff already seen that’s supposedly embargoed until 23rd November for some reason

The other is called the second alien worlds collection out dec 6th, but it doesn’t show up under doctor who, just under alien. Has the sensorites, space war, planet of the daleks, ribos operation and androids of tara in. I don’t get the audio readings but i know lots of people do.

      Issue 140 was originally the Zarbi, but has been replaced by the Ghost Superhero from The Return of Doctor Mysterio, presumably as this is the Christmas issue, so I’m guessing the Zarbi is now 141, but there’s no official word. No word on the next bonus Dalek either, but rumours include the Battle Computer from Remembrance or Davros variants.

    • Anonymous

      October 18th, 2018 - 1:08am

      It’s a fictional machine, it really doesn’t matter how it’s powered! If you want an answer that covers it, the power source of a tardis is always the eye of harmony on gallifrey via a ‘wireless link or a physical link (as show in the 1996 movie and after) directly from each tardis to the eye. How a tardis shows that link in it’s configuation is up to each individual ship. In this new version, the energy from the eye goes directly to a Crystal that the tardis has created linked to the console room. It’s funny that everyone seems to really get uptight about changes in new who (relax Stu, it’s not a dig at you just a generalisation) but classic who constantly contradicted itself in so many ways but fans don’t seem to complain about that!

      I’m not a fan, I want a more classic looking console room back again. I absolutely hate this new version with the biscuit dispenser, sand timer, taps and pipes, there’s a pair of binoculars apparently instead of a monitor and don’t get me started on the spinning crystal police box.

      October 18th, 2018 - 8:58pm

      Personally, I like the smaller gimmicky things, but I think the crystal design is a bit too much, and doesn’t really go with the weird lattice walls.

      The great think about 12’s TARDIS is that it keeps the traditional silver design, and console shape, as well as the roundels, while adding a lot of new parts to modernise it and bring it up to date.

      But, it isn’t any more of a change from 7’s to 9’s, but it is very different.

      I too got the same response. Keep the item & full Refund. Unfortunately River Colony Trading referred me to Amazon Customer Service & Amazon told me they can’t offer a replacement, but did offer to waive the Shipping cost if I re-ordered. Again unfortunately, they have stopped the all-in-one price & the item now cost’s about £34 plus the possibility of UK Tax/PO Fee. So now pointless trying to buy from them! Your Sonic picture Booboo is fairly good, my box was completely mangled, tears in four places, top & bottom torn open – Such a mess!

      Everyone that got one from the webshop received a magazine, everyone who got it sent with the subscription did not.

      Does that include iPlayer?

      Yes, iPlayer got 2 million requests in total. The new BARB stats means that they collate people who watched it on tablets, phones etc too, so the stats including iPlayer is 10.5, with the new data they record, 10.9. If you’re comparing it with the Capaldi era, the 10.5 is probably more accurate proportionally, but the 10.9 is more reflective of the whole audience, who back in 2005-2010 wouldn’t have watched on phones or tablets (where as during 2014-2017 would have, but it wasn’t recorded then). Either way its a pretty good figure. Retention will be interesting to see.

    Think they might release budget versions of classic who seasons on dvd so people in the us can watch them, they would be quicker to make then the blu rays they did just release new doctor box sets on dvd even though they are on blu ray
