It seems this was also a repeated mistake. Apologies to those who ordered one (as we did).

    Have to say I’m so pleased I bought the set when it came out. Shocking from argos for those fans who want this

      Me too! I luckily pre-ordered it back in 2014. The cardboard box was flimsy though. I got the DVD version. I keep my DVDs out of the box, and put them alongside the rest of my Doctor Who DVD collection.

      its not the first time apparently, they should just refund everyone automatically and have done with it.

      we have told them that’s what they should do

      So just the ‘Day of the Doctor’ single release?

      didn’t open the packet just refused it as it was clearly just a single DVD in a jiffy bag (Rattled as well so suspect DVD was loose in the case)

      just emailed Argos, as this apparently is repeated mistake its really poor on their part

      Just had the same thing happen. Refused delivery. The man from Parcelforce was very understanding.

      It sounded too good to be true. It was a limited run. The chances of there still being ‘new’ stock available was extremely slim, near impossible.

      still no excuse for such an error filled listing, especially as they have done it before it seems.

    Hmmm. I’m doubtful it’s the 50th anniversary dvd set. I thought that was limited edition. I’m sure by now they would have long been sold out. I may be wrong, but the only way tho could be sold is if it’s stock they lost but have recently found…I don’t suppose ‘The Tenth Planet’ 4 was there too? šŸ™‚

      quite often stuff appears from no where, Argos sold some classic 5″ figures once and 12″ Dalek Sec’s that were years old

      Bit like the time capsule on zavvi.

      Having said that it appears this may be wrong but that poor on Argos’s part if it is

      Surely trading standards should be notified if wrong product is listed, and different item is delivered to households.

      all they have to do is refund (including any return postage costs)

      although if this is repeated mistake all they might get is a slap on the wrist if someone wants to pursue it

    Just a warning-I bought a product with this description in store a few years back and it was just the standard Day of the Doctor. Don’t be disappointed if they’ve messed up again.

      Yeah same, it was called the 50th Anniversary Boxset and was Ā£9.99, and then just ended up being the regular DVD.

    • booboo

      that’s really poor if true on this occasion as well, no excuses for this, std version is only 3.99 at most places to.

      I ordered one myself and will not be happy.

    Oh well not too bothered I missed out as it was only the DVD. If I really want it the blu-ray is Ā£50 on eBay so I might get it one day.
