    I sent this to the BBC about the chances of a re release of this as demand is so high. Below is the email i sent and below that is the reply I got back from them. You never know…..maybe…just maybe.
    Will the above be re released after the demand was so high and not a lot was made.surely it would benefit the BBC hugely as there is still a great demand for its re release. They are regularly selling for upto £300 on eBay.A re-release would be a good move for the BBC.

    Regards

    Thank you for your e-mail Andrew and suggestion which we will forward immediately to our Sales teams for further consideration.

    Kind regards

    I found a site selling the UK edition season 12 boxset for £40. I’m not sure if it’s legit so could someone help me out?

      no contact details, no trading address, no nothing, that’s about as un-legit as things can get

      If this Grant Williams (AKA Dr Who Store) has somehow sourced some stock, why isn’t he selling them on ebay for hundreds of pounds each? Selling at RRP or lower doesn’t seem like good business to me.

    Or couldn’t they take orders in a time period then do a re-run. As it will be a year since it’s release next month, they could have July for people to request orders. Then come then end of the month count them up and print a re-run. Stores/retailers could also order stock on a firm sale basis. Then there wouldn’t be any lost money.

      The amount of orders might not cover the cost of a re-run though.

      I don’t know what the minimum would be but is suspect it would be quite a large number.

      Hopefully they can work some number out and make it happen but would have though they would have done it by now

    They might re-release it later on down the line but thats maybe unlikely. There are a few bargains out there if you keep looking and be on at the right time. I was very very lucky and got mine dirt cheap.

    I know these special Blu-ray collections are limited edition releases. But why is it that there is so much call for season 12 to be reprinted that BBC worldwide don’t just do another run. There’s money to be made as so many of us didn’t get it the first time round. The next 2 (season 18 and 19) have seen a much higher qty made due to the first being so popular. They obviously didn’t see these releases being so in demand. I’m still going to get the rest and make sure I preorder straight away upon announcement so I don’t miss out (like others no doubt). But I will still have a gap in my collection☹️. Unless one day they do the next best thing; do Doctor box sets.

      i suspect there is a very fine line between how many need to be produced in a re-run V’s How many people actually want one.

      If its 2000 minimum and there are only 1000 potential buyers out there the “money to be made” soon turns into a big loss.

      If they can secure 2000 orders from retailers all well and good but they don’t want expensive sets tying up capitol stuck on shelves either
