    Wow! The new close-up images make the set look even better!

    Pre-ordered this today, but I’m not allowed it until Christmas, which kinda blows.

    I’m going to keep my AAISAT DVD though, as I think it deserves it’s own special space on my shelf. Will sell me DOTD DVD though. Should get a little bit out of it.

      I checked both AAISAT & DOTD as I was going to offload them as well – Having checked the SF on both, some are not replicated on the 50th. CE so I’m now going to keep them. The SF on the TOTD Specials release ARE all on the 50th. CE which I had not bought ~ So the 50th. CE look’s like a good buy to me…

      I am mainly keeping AAISAT because it deserves it’s own spot /and/ I like the reconstructions and bonus features on the disc too.

      The bonus features on the DOTD DVD weren’t spectacular in my opinion, and a lot of what is in here is much better. Only with they had the 50th Trailer, the one with all the Doctors time-locked? That’s probably all I would miss from that release.

      it depends on whether or not you want the extras that aren’t on the previous releases. I personally have them all as well, but have ordered this (bluray version) because i want all the extras that i don’t already have!

    • Anonymous

      July 24th, 2014 - 10:08pm

      I don’t mind about the extra

      but it look so good

    • When The Doctor Was Me

      July 24th, 2014 - 10:15pm

      then i wouldn’t spend the money if you want it for its looks then whats the point when you have all the stuff you want and are not worried about the extras on this set.

    I NEEEED. this is amazing. i still need DOTD, TOTD and AAISAT

    • Mike

      July 25th, 2014 - 5:24am

      I’ve been holding out for this. I deliberately didn’t get the other releases in hope of a decent boxset for the anniversary. The BBC are true to form and my predictions have come true. I can’t wait to get this. 🙂

  • DavidH

    July 24th, 2014 - 8:34pm

    I’m undecided on this set. It’s cool, but all I really need are Day, Time and AAISAT. The rest are nice bonuses but I could do without them

      no point spending £30 on something you already have

  • Alan

    July 24th, 2014 - 7:15pm

    Looks like such a cool boxset!!! Definitely going to own this!!! So many great Doctor Who goodies in there it simply cannot be missed!!!

  • Danny

    July 24th, 2014 - 7:00pm

    Looks great! But won’t be getting it as i’ve seen them all

      Is it region free?

  • The TARDIS

    July 24th, 2014 - 6:56pm

    Don’t know whether to hold out for a standard edition set that will match the series box sets, or to just dive in and get this. If there is no standard edition and I don’t get this now and it sells out, then I will never get the set. If I get this now and they announce a standard edition, then I will be stuck with a more expensive set which doesn’t match the collection so far. Collector’s mindset y’see, even the smallest of problems is a conundrum. Need some advice!

    • When The Doctor Was Me

      July 24th, 2014 - 7:26pm

      I’m the same! my collection has to look perfect! no mismatching!

    • The TARDIS

      July 24th, 2014 - 7:29pm

      I’ve just spent around £100 updating my new series collection into the series box sets to fit in with series 8 which it seems is not getting volumes. And now the BBC decides that is need this glaring anomaly in the middle of my collection? NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    • When The Doctor Was Me

      July 24th, 2014 - 9:42pm

      i know! i create my own cover art and spines as well so they all look the same if you know what i mean! i like consistency! I’m just glad I’m not the only one out there! lol

  • cyberman2

    July 24th, 2014 - 6:52pm

    YES!!!!!!! i wanted this to happen

  • CaptainJack2000

    July 24th, 2014 - 6:46pm

    Will this still be available at Christmas?

  • The TARDIS

    July 24th, 2014 - 6:30pm

    Will this be released later on as a DVD digipak, the same style as the series box sets? Or is this the only one on offer?

  • The Werewolf

    July 24th, 2014 - 5:45pm

    I’ve not got any of these yet, so I’m thinking of getting it.

  • Existent Being

    This might just be me getting my hopes up, but that grey of those cases… It looks like it could be… Reversible classic style covers?

  • The Twelfth Doctor

    July 24th, 2014 - 5:37pm

    Pre-ordered this so I hope I was one of the first 500 people to order this.

    • ahunter8056

      July 24th, 2014 - 5:53pm

      Is there a special offer for the first 500 orders?

    • The Twelfth Doctor

      July 24th, 2014 - 5:55pm

      Yep. If you are one of the first 500 to order, you receive a free 50th Anniversary brochure.

      It was mentioned on the BBC shop listing. It went up after I’d bought mine and it’s gone now. Hope I got there early enough!

    • The Twelfth Doctor

      Exactly what Anonymous said 🙂

    • Radburn

  • videogamemad00

    It looks great and Five(ish) Doctors but I think I would rather spend the money on Big Finish audios.

  • Esterath

    Oh wow! Gorgeous artwork!

  • Sam Richard Bentley

  • Rikki Krystal

    July 24th, 2014 - 4:13pm

    Fab,just pre-ordered mine.
    Mainly brought it for the five-ish doctors.
    Nice cheap price as well.

    • Vortexsurfer

      July 24th, 2014 - 4:41pm

      Agreed. Was afraid that this might turn out to be £60+ purchase the Five-ish Doctors and a heap of stuff we’ve already got, but the £28.99 is actually pretty reasonable.

  • Haza14

    July 24th, 2014 - 3:58pm

    As this is a limited edition DVD, will it be a BBC shop exclusive or will it be avaliable elsewhere?

    • booboo

      July 24th, 2014 - 4:06pm

      no available elsewhere

    • Haza14

  • SonicTheHedgehogRules

    July 24th, 2014 - 2:27pm

    I’m so glad I didn’t buy Day of the Doctor or Time of the Doctor separately. I knew something like this was coming, and I’m super glad I waited for it. ^_^

  • Existent Being

    July 24th, 2014 - 12:28pm

    Does anybody know if this is one disc, multiple discs in one case or a proper box set?

    • Sam

      July 24th, 2014 - 12:52pm

      The DVD release is 4 discs according to the BBC shop features other than that I don’t know.

  • The Whofan101

    July 24th, 2014 - 12:06pm

    I might wait and see if this set pops up on other retailer sites like Amazon or Zavvi. If not, then count me in!

  • Adam is cool
