    Finally got this yesterday from CEX for £48, pretty good price considering how rare it is.

    Nice one BBC Shop. They have given me a further 10% refund due to the misinformation in there original advertising regarding the availability of a 3D copy of Day of the Doctor…

      good for them

      Although I’m rather astonished all other retailers are still showing the image which indicates and 3d disc in included

      The same as Argos are still showing an image of a figure no one is going to be able to buy

    Packaging is poor! Cheap, thin, flimsy cardboard which creases easily when you open it at the top. Compared to my GoT and Walking Dead boxsets, it is very poor. I was expecting the type of box where you can slide the cases out from the side.

    Hi everyone and booboo.

    Just had email from bbcshop saying I was one of the first 500 to order it on blueray so my 50th anniversary celebration brochure will be delivered in 3 to 5days.

    Hope it is good. And good luck to the other 499.

    Is the 50th anniversary episode in 3d within the box set?

    • booboo

      August 31st, 2014 - 9:43pm

      it was never stated but the original box image did say 3D but BBC shop have changed their picture and its now not showing

  • The First Doctor

    August 24th, 2014 - 1:45pm

    It’s just too bad Chris Eccelstone was the only person who didn’t do anything for the 50th.

    So is An adventure in space in time a hi def version with the Blu ray set or just the DVD copy?

    Anyone know if they are limited in numbers or not. BBC shop and Amazon don’t mention so.

    • booboo

      July 26th, 2014 - 7:46pm

      according to the press release it 6,000 Blu Ray, 4,000 DVD

      judging by sales i cant see it being around for long

  • CyberGuy500

    July 26th, 2014 - 6:38pm

    Does anyone know if the Proms included on this is the full version or the shortened version from TV?

    • Doctor Simeon

      July 26th, 2014 - 9:39pm

      Shortened version, I believe.

    Any idea on how they are going to handle packaging. I would presume it is four cases inside a sort of hollow crate? Any theories guys (or girls).

    • When The Doctor Was Me

      August 11th, 2014 - 9:36am

      I think it will be similar to the series 6 and 7 part 1 and 2 sets. Only with four cases, with the top being the opening! Or from the side with i would prefer. Or it could be 4 very skinny cases (yuck) so it becomes the same width of a boxset.

    Isn’t it nice for once to finally say that the BBC have listened to fans and acted upon criticism. Well done BBC, people like Amazon should follow your example.

  • The Contessa

    July 26th, 2014 - 1:39pm

    Just ordered this from BBC shop with the code RP0714 – bargain @ £28.79. Word of warning though – they debit your card straight away even though it’s a pre-release!

    • Nicholas

      July 26th, 2014 - 1:48pm

      They don’t. They just hold that money so you can’t spend it

    • The Contessa

      July 26th, 2014 - 2:16pm

      Same thing?!

    • when i say run

      July 26th, 2014 - 6:42pm

      Thanks for the warning as Im having to budget for the doctor who releases coming out, and as the money comes out straight away it would have thrown my adding up.

    Pre-ordered the blu-ray set can’t wait to have all the extra specials aswell! Especially the five-ish Doctor’s!!! 😀

  • Grey and Blue

    July 25th, 2014 - 2:50pm

    Pre ordered!!! The code helped a lot @trenzalore thanks! 🙂 Well worth it for price. One thing that strikes me as odd is that cpaldi;s first series is only going to be £38 on blu ray? Seems quite less than series 7’s semi outrageous £55 price tag. If anyone is looking for a bargain on series 7 blu amazon are selling it currently for £18 btw.

    • Gargan7

      July 25th, 2014 - 3:14pm

      Which code?

    • Grey and Blue

      July 25th, 2014 - 3:20pm

      The discount code for BBcshop trenzalore posted earlier RP0714

    • Grey and Blue

      July 25th, 2014 - 3:21pm

      I used it on this boxset is what I was referring to. 10 percent off.

    • Gargan7

      July 25th, 2014 - 3:27pm

      Pre-ordered with the code! Thanks Grey and Blue!!

    • StormOfOncomers

      July 25th, 2014 - 3:49pm

      I used the code for the Blu-ray set, AND snapped up Series 7 for £18 off Amazon this week – best bargains EVER!

    • Nicholas

      July 25th, 2014 - 4:23pm

      Best £28 I’ve spent in a while!

    • Grey and Blue

      July 25th, 2014 - 5:10pm

      Its a good week to be a doctor who fan! 🙂

  • CyberGuy500

    As it is limited to 6000 for Blu-ray and 4000 to DVD, does anybody know if these sets will be numbered?

    • CyberGuy500

      July 26th, 2014 - 12:59pm

      booboo Do you know if the sets are numbered?

    • Doctor Simeon

      July 26th, 2014 - 9:40pm

      We will have to see when they arrive, or for further details.

  • Adipose333

    July 25th, 2014 - 2:32pm

    So doesn’t this set include the special features included on the AISAT DVD? Or in fact a few from Day of the Doctor – I’m not that bothered but it would have been nice to have everything

    • Adipose333

      July 25th, 2014 - 2:34pm

      Also, I presume that this does include the 2-D version of Day as well, I don’t have a 3D blu ray player (or a 3D TV for that matter)

    • booboo

      July 25th, 2014 - 2:35pm

      yes it will

  • Adipose333

    July 25th, 2014 - 2:14pm

    Just ordered mine, it looks fantastic

  • doctor who is ace

    July 25th, 2014 - 1:10pm
