BBC Studios announces Season 10 as the next installment in the DOCTOR WHO: THE COLLECTION Blu-ray range

BBC Studios continues to offer Doctor Who fans the opportunity to build their own home archive on Blu-ray. The first jam-packed release for Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor, Doctor Who – The Collection: Season 10, debuts on Monday 8th July, the very day after Pertwee himself would have turned 100.

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, colourful 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. Season 10 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.

Starring alongside Jon Pertwee are Katy Manning, Nicholas Courtney, Roger Delgado, Richard Franklin and John Levene.

With all 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).

A specially shot announcement trailer – and sequel to classic adventure The Green Death – has debuted on the Doctor Who YouTube channel; written by new series contributor Pete McTighe (Kerblam!) and starring original Doctor Who companion, Katy Manning.

DOCTOR WHO: THE COLLECTION – SEASON 10 includes the following stories from 1972/73:

  • The Three Doctors
  • Carnival of Monsters
  • Frontier in Space
  • Planet of the Daleks
  • The Green Death

RRP: £56.16 and available from www.zoom.co.uk , www.amazon.co.uk and www.zavvi.com

    Even better news for those of us in New Zealand.
    Season 10 is now available to preorder from JB HI Fi in New Zealand.
    This is the first set to be released here.
    I have canceled my order with JB HI FI in Australia and placed an order with them here in New Zealand. Yay! No long wait for it to arrive in the post.
    I only hope that the previous 3 sets are released here too. I imagine there will be a few annoyed people if they start their collection with Season 10 not realising that several seasons have already been released but not made available in New Zealand.

    For Aussie purchasers (like me) who have been waiting nervously for this, BBC Studios ANZ have just let me know that Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Australia (phew) will be releasing this one November 13 – yay!

      Thanks for posting that.
      I have been regularly checking JB Hi Fi’s website but so far no sign of this.
      It’s nice to finally have some news.
      I will definitely pre order this when it becomes available.
      I wonder what the packaging will be like for one?
      Season 18 was a simplified version of the UK set which was still nice but it would be great to go back to the original designs.

    This box set seems to be no longer available. Even though it hasn’t had a proper release over in Australia. The 3 previous Collection Blu Rays were sold in stores at JB Hi Fi. Season 10 is yet to show up online. Did the BBC just give up on sending it to Australia. There’s barely any copies on eBay either. And the Zavvi website no longer lists it. Why are the BBC working these good box sets out of existence? How are people going to watch Classic Who once these are all sold? And the previous standard DVD line is completely discontinued in Australia now. I haven’t seen Season 10. At this rate I never will. Anyone have any information?

      universal has just taken over distribution from roadshow. Probably taking a bit of time to changeover.

      They are limited edition so they will sell out eventually.

      It was No 1 in the Official U.K. Blu-ray sales chart on it’s first week of sales, then fell to No 35 and is now at 62.

    I know I’m probably late to the party, but I’ve seen the Jon Pertwee folding caravan footage somewhere before – I just can’t remember where (I even remember that it was supposed to take eleven seconds to fold up). I think it was on a DVD or Blu-ray, but I can’t remember for certain, and if it was I definitely can’t remember which one (I know it’s all over the Internet, but I’m sure I saw it on disc). I’ve looked at various sites that list the extras and Easter eggs on the various discs, but found no mention of it. Anybody who can nudge my weary old brain towards an answer to this would have my sincere gratitude. Help!

    Finally got mine in. Watch the first three parts of Three Doctors, and I’m impressed with how good the picture quality is. Loving these sets.

      A think I heard a couple of clicks on the sound early in episode 2 of Colony In Space.

      Colony in Space? That’s S8, and the only thing I know of that being released is the US MOD DVD re-release in two days.

      I meant Frontier In Space! A typo/hangover – delete as appropriate.
