    I emailed the BBC Shop and these are reproductions and not the actual posters from the cinema.

      It does not state the size anywhere 🙁

      I would assume that this is a maxi-poster so 61×91.5 (or 61.5×91 I forget which one).

      60×40 inches

      As I posted below.
      If these are actual cinema quad posters they will be 30 inches by 40 inches [762x1020mm].

      I’ve noticed that they have amended the description by adding (A1) to it.
      The dimensions of the A series paper sizes, as defined by the ISO 216 standard give A1 as 23.4 inches by 33.1 inches [594x841mm] and is slightly smaller than a cinema quad.
      Hopefully this is just an approximation on their part?!
      Only time (and ordering will) tell.

    I wonder how much money Deep Breath made at the box office, because it got over 7 million viewers of BBC1 which is less then what Matt Smith had in his debut story.

      took half a million and its in the weekend top 10 (for just one showing) – not bad

      time shifts for deep breath are already at 8.5 million, will probably end at over 9 that doesn’t include i player

      Think how more high the number would be if it hadn’t been shown in cinemas

      It really wouldn’t have made much difference.

      Viewing habits are changing fast…even from The Eleventh Hour. So many people now watch TV shows on devices via demand downloads or watch on catch up. Its not the case anymore where the whole family will now sit and watch DW as its actually being aired…that’s just changing lifestyles…so you cant compare viewing figures with an episode that aired 3 years ago. Its like comparing viewing figures from the 60s, 70’s and 80’s….no wonder those figures were high – there were only 3 channels, no catch up or even the ability to record.

    Are these genuine cinema ‘quad’ posters or just reproductions?
    Genuine cinema posters are printed on thicker paper on the front and back to prevent any bleaching of the image whilst displayed in a light box.
    Also no dimensions are given (a quad is 30 inches by 40 inches [762x1020mm]).

      Funnily enough I was wondering if they are reproductions. The one I got from the Cinema the paper is quite thick.

      The £9.99 price might be a reflection of it being on thicker paper whilst all the other individual posters are £3.99 (btw price includes P&P).
      I was fortunate to get a One Sheet (portrait orientated and 27 inches by 40 inches [686x1020mm]) from the cinema but I couldn’t get the Quad.
      I did get the Day of the Doctor Quad from the cinema last year and it now has autographs of Jenna Coleman, Gemma Redgrave, Tom Baker and John Hurt on it .
      The image on the Deep Breath poster is a little odd because with the addition of their names in order of impo

    There was a Day of the Doctor poster and I think Day had a good promotion.
    I got this poster already from the Cinema.

    I really wanted one of these for the 50th cinema posters- but no ssuch poster was released. And that really bugs me. Why has Deep Breath had more coverage and support from the BBC than Day of the Doctor? Am I the only one who thinks this?

      The Day of the Doctor has created the foundation of which the Deep Breath marketing is based on. The former was critically acclaimed and globally transmitted. It was an absolute success that has allowed the BBC to take more risks and allow Deep Breath a feature length broadcast and release. It doesn’t make The Day of the Doctor any less special, in fact it’s more special as it has allowed us some real treats that will hopefully last for a while to come.
