    I sent an email to the bbc dvd enquiry line about the release

    Here’s what I got back

    Morning John

    Yes we are planning to release UHD of this title. We have not been advised yet of the actual UK date nor whether it is being extended by additional material.

    Kind regards

    Any updates on this, I honestly can’t wait for a uk version

    If there is no region coding for 4K, why is this Region 1?

    • The Flying Shark

      This presumably means it’s only available in Region 1, so anybody in the UK wanting it would need it importing from America.

      Probably referring to the region of the bonus blu ray disc

    Looks like there’s a Complete Peter Capaldi Years 14 disc Blu-ray boxset on the way for US buyers packaged in a lay flat book with “over three hours of new bonus content”…

    Don’t have a 4K player or tv yet but will be upgrading in the next couple of years so probably will get it. Still haven’t got twice upon a time yet and the 4K disc comes with a bonus blu ray disc so it’s still worth my time buying. At least I won’t end up buying it twice that way

      Thats the beauty of 4K and the prices will keep coming down in time. Had mine nearly a year and got a few discs. the upscale as it stands is superb and almost puts Blu-ray to bed. I,m just wondering though because now they are repackaging films in old retro VHS cases with added bluray and accessories. I wonder if they exhaust options whether they,d return this way to old WHO as a novelty to fans who never grew up on VHS tapes.

      I would adore that range, certain stories though

    I thought the BBC haven’t started filming in 4K yet? So this will be an upscale?

    It’s a miracle, they haven’t given it the new logo!

      I don’t think that is the actual cover.

    It says the run time is 2 hours 40 minutes. Extended edition maybe?

      Including the 2017 con panel (60 minutes) and the two extras (40 minutes)

      Make this release worth something
      you cut 30 minutes from it
      An Extended Edition May make me like you more Episode

    What’s the episode even filmed in 4k? Because if not then it’s just an upscale again.

    • Dr ?

      July 12th, 2018 - 3:46pm

      The black and white scenes from The Tenth Planet won’t be…

      The special was not filmed in 4k, I’d get there was a normal bluray disc included or a separate “special” edition version.

    even though it’s the second worst episode in the shows history

    • Phillip

      July 11th, 2018 - 2:25am

      2nd worst? It wasn’t the greatest but not that bad surely… It’s better than all of McCoy’s era, better than all of season 10, better than Smith’s final episode (albeit that’s primarily the directors fault along with the daft idea of holonudity and church mixed with the poorest outing of the weeping angels. )

    • The Outcast

      July 11th, 2018 - 3:59am

      Hey, McCoy’s era is great barring Season 24. And Series 10 was miles better than Series 9 and Series 2.

      But that is just my opinion, like your opinion is just your opinion and the original comment in this thread is just whoever’s opinion. It’s not fact.

      Thank You
      The Outcast
      There is an episode worse than it (in my opinion)
      I know twice upon a time is divisive

      and if this is an extended cut
      I may like it more

      At least it was not as bad as hell bent.

    • Anonymous

      July 11th, 2018 - 10:29pm

      Both as equally awful in my opinion

    • Phillip

      July 12th, 2018 - 10:41pm

      Hi Outcast,… I love Sylvester McCoy but the episodes of his are the worst of any era. That includes Production design, budget, and overall writing.

    • Gordon

      July 12th, 2018 - 11:57pm

      The McCoy era starts off bad but gets way better in some of 25 and the whole of 26. I’d go so far as to say s26 was one of the best of the 80s. No dud in my opinion. Such a shame the show was pretty much on life support behind the scenes in the last couple of years that it was lucky there was even a show for those last 4 years.


      July 13th, 2018 - 2:05pm

      As far as season 26 is concerned there wasn,t really a dud although Battlefield is for me the weakest link.Even Ben Aaronovich resigned himself that what he wrote never became fully realised on screen. As brigadier Bambera herself says ‘oh, shame’.

    • T.A

      July 13th, 2018 - 6:04pm

      There are some episodes from the McCoy, I would put over TUAT, delta and the banner men, dragon fire, remembrance of the daleks, sliver nemesis, greatest show on the galaxy and the curse of fendrick. Btw I have not watched every single episode of the Moffat era.

    Whilst I would love Doctor Who to watch on 4K, I can’t see the Beeb dropping the extra cash to master any episodes in 4K… And I Know they won’t be rendering Any of the CGI in anything but 2k so this is a bit confusing LOL. I can see a slight increase in improvement of Colour and Audio but unless I’m terribly mistaken this is basically a Blu-ray straight Transfer… If you’re wanting to drop an extra couple of bucks for a cool black plastic case then heck yeah!!! Anyone with any specs on this mastering and transfer? If it has actual 4k content then I will double dip:)

    • Phillip

      July 11th, 2018 - 2:28am

      Admittedly I do like the cover

    • Phillip

      July 11th, 2018 - 2:39am

      I stand corrected, this should actually look quite a bit better on a 4K display in comparison to the Blu-ray release even with a 2K master…

      I hope they re-render the effects in 4K for that Dyamic Range

    4K releases are not Region coded. Only the DVD will be Region 1

    • James

      July 10th, 2018 - 10:54pm

      That’s not fair it should come out in Britain aswell , if you look at the run time there like an extra 100 minutes so I’m guessing the deleted scenes that steven moffent there were, if this is the case I will not be happy as I will miss this on DVD


    July 10th, 2018 - 10:11pm

    At long last and moving with the times, a 4k release


      July 10th, 2018 - 10:15pm

      Oh no, but Region 1

    • Leon Kerr

      July 11th, 2018 - 11:55am

      There’s no region coding on 4k….
