    Not merchandise related … but does anyone not find it strange that we haven’t got a series 12 trailer yet as around this time last year there was two but we’ve barley got any information about series 12 so far which is weird considering it’s meant to air early within next year

      The only whisper is an episode before the main series but not a Christmas or new year special, just a one off story. That was mooted a while back but if the series isn’t on even if you said January it’s still 3 odd months away

      These are all wonderful ideas! If they do the new series, I’d like to see the full length confidentials for each episode, a new making of for each episode, a selection of commentaries-the original DVD one where applicable, the online/red button ones where applicable plus new ones with different cast and crew, extended edits of every episode if possible, omnibus editions for the two part stories, plus a behind the sofa for each episode. Speaking of behind the sofa, I hope they get the Adventure in Space and Time cast on Seasons 1 and 2, plus David Troughton on his Dad’s seasons. Plus, please some more inspired combinations like Frazer, Matthew and Mark on Season 23-an odd combination, but a very funny one!

    Still no news on a series 10 soundtrack I’m guessing? Going by when series 9 was announced in December 2017 which was 2 years after the series ended with the Xmas special. Should we expect a similar announcement this year seeing as it would be 2 years since twice upon a time? What are your thoughts?

      During the original run, they did-subscriptions stopped due to rising postage costs during the late Matt Smith era, but started again when Panini bought up the rights during the Capaldi era-but this time, it was just the magazine and not the gifts, again due to cost cutting I imagine.

      I should say that I don’t think there is anything to be read into the delay other than the author may have some professionally or personal issues. It’s happened with other authors before. I only mentioned it as I’m a bit disappointed by the delay. I loved his first book and was looking forward to this one in November this year so a six month delay is disappointing.

    Reply
    • The Flying Shark

      October 1st, 2019 - 8:53pm

      I think the picture quality is better, but it’s worth noting that the upscaling process adds about four minutes onto the episodes due to showing less frames per minute, so that’s a factor to consider. However, the artwork is really nice on them and, if you still have the original chunky boxes from the year they were first shown, it’s worth the upgrade due to the extra space you’ll have alone, as they all come in slimline boxes (bar Series 4, which is a thicker case but still slimmer than first release). Overall, they’re £15 a series in HMV and a good investment if you care about saving space and better picture quality, but will take longer to watch.

      Yes-the box sets are just the DVDs but with better picture quality and on less discs. Series 1-3 are on 3 discs each, Series 4 is on 4 discs (presuming due to Voyage of the Damned/Journey’s End being over an hour long each just pushing it over?)

    I have a question. In Doctor Who, Amy and Rory travel with the Doctor throughout 2010 as is stated multiple times. This then crosses over to 2011 as this is the year of elevens death via the astronaut. BUT when the doctor visits Amy and Rory to tell them he’s still alive at the end of the Doctor, the widow and the wardrobe Amy states it’s been 2 years since they last met. Making it 2013 (almost 2014 as it’s now Christmas). But Amy and Rory die via weeping Angel in present day 2012. Which can’t make sense. Has anyone got a fix for this?

    Are there fakes of Series 11 going around? I nearly bought one today in Cex, but it didn’t look very official-as well as the image on the front looking somewhat distorted, the discs were in a clear plastic case with a cardboard sleeve over it, when as far as I’m aware, the only official release has been the chunky cardboard case with a holographic cover. This definitely wasn’t a Cex reprinted cover as they normally print “Cover Reprinted” in the top left corner when this is the case. So what is this-re-release I didn’t know about or very convincing fake?

      they don’t have it in stock and they don’t have the exclusive rights but have “secured some stock”

      15% re-stocking fee for cancelled orders and wont expect returns on larger pops.

      They seem to have a large following but i would read this companies T&C’s very carefully before ordering https://doubleboxedtoys.com/collections/nycc-2019/products/bbc-doctor-who-tzim-sha-nycc-2019-exclusive

      I order from them regularly for American exclusives and harder to find pops, after about 20 orders they haven’t let me down yet, the guy beind it all (Jack) is a nice guy who seems to just want to help out getting everyone what they want, I was sceptical at first but like I said, after about 20 orders (all which come double boxed in pop protectors too, as the name suggests) there becoming the only company I go to now for American exclusives.

      I just find their T&C’s a bit concerning.

      Just found that Popcultcha has the Kerblam Man, Recon Dalek & Goggles 13th. in stock. Supposedly due in the UK for Oct/Nov?

      I was originally led to believe the Kerblam Man was Glow In The Dark but I’m not so sure now?

    Don’t know if it’s been mentioned but the 12″ Jodie doll is now down to a fiver at B&M.

    Must have been a poor seller.

      most people will have already bought it.

      It was never going to sell big at any price to be honest.

      Stick a purple top on it and different story
