Jon Pertwee’s complete fourth season as The Doctor in Doctor Who is coming to Blu-ray in this brand new collection! In 1973, Doctor Who celebrated its tenth anniversary with a very special story reuniting the first two Doctors – William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton – with Jon Pertwee’s then-current Doctor. The Three Doctors kicks off an explosive, colorful series of adventures across all of time and space as the Doctor and Jo Grant (Katy Manning) encounter the rogue Time Lord Omega, the terrifying Drashigs, the noble Draconians, fearsome Ogrons, deadly Daleks and slithering giant maggots. This season also includes the final appearance of Roger Delgado as the Doctor’s arch nemesis The Master, plus adventures alongside Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart (Nicholas Courtney) and UNIT. With all 26 episodes newly remastered from the best available sources, this Blu-ray box set also contains extensive and exclusive special features which include:

• A brand new feature-length documentary examining the Third Doctor’s Era, with archival contributions from Jon Pertwee, Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks plus all-new interviews with Katy Manning, Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, presented by Matthew Sweet.
• Updated special effects and surround sound mix for Planet of the Daleks.
• Five new instalments of Behind the Sofa, featuring Katy Manning, Richard Franklin (Captain Yates) and John Levene (Sergeant Benton), along with 21st century Doctor Who panel Phil Collinson (Producer/Executive Producer), Pete McTighe (Writer) and Joy Wilkinson (Writer).
• Looking for Lennie, a documentary investigating the life of director Lennie Mayne. • Keeping up with the Jones’, which sees Katy Manning with Stewart Bevan (Cliff Jones) pay a return visit to the Welsh locations from The Green Death.
• Plus: a repeat omnibus of The Green Death unseen since Christmas 1973, rare Panopticon convention footage, Blu-ray trailer, HD photo galleries plus scripts, production files and rare documentation provided as PDFs.
• The six-disc box set also includes hours of extensive special features previously released on DVD including two episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures that saw Katy Manning’s Jo Jones meet the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith).

    I actually prefer the U.S packaging. It’s less bulky cardboard U.K packaging, and takes up even less space on the shelf. Which is ideal if you want a collection compact as possible.

      I agree that it makes for a more compact collection. But the difference is more than just a box. It’s a full booklet, more artwork, different disc art for each disc and correctly numbered seasons. They just look and feel more of a special collectible rather than just another boxset. I would say the only downfall to the UK is that they probably won’t stand the test of time and begin to deteriorate a bit.

      I like to use space savers for my blu-ray, but to be honest I absolutely love how the UK Collections looks like, so I won’t mind it takes a bit more space than it would in classic plastic box. Also it’s taking waaaaay less space than the whole season took when they were released by stories on dvd.

    Yesterday the fourth season of Doctor Who: The Collection was released by in the U.S. While I’m happy that another season is out (15% of the seasons have been released in the U.S.), I’m disappointed at the packaging.

    The first three released seasons came with slipcovers. John Pertwee’s fourth season did not. The two Tom Baker releases had Disc Contents inserts. Like the Peter Davison’s release that lacked the Disc Contents insert (which everyone thought was a fluke), this latest release also lacked the insert.

    For $55.29, you’d think I could get a season set that matches its predecessors. ☹️
