Starring Paul McGann, this BBC iPlayer exclusive will for the first time ever reveal what became of the 8th Doctor. On the eve of his most terrible battle, the Time Lord is faced with a choice that will change the course of his life. The darkest of days are about to begin.

The Doctor has always been a man of secrets – and now they can be told…

• The Day of the Doctor

The Day of the Doctor stars Matt Smith, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman, with Billie Piper and John Hurt. The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th Anniversary Special: in 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

• The Time of the Doctor

The Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, takes the controls of the TARDIS for the last time in The Time of the Doctor. Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe’s deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them – the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe.

• An Adventure in Space and Time

On November 23rd 1963, a television legend began when the very first episode of Doctor Who was broadcast in the UK on BBC One. Fifty years later, An Adventure in Space and Time brings to life the story of the show’s creation and the role in its success of the first producer, director and, of course, the very first Doctor – William Hartnell.

    There is a website called Golden Discs which operates in Ireland that currently has the 50th Steelbook for 40 euros, which equates to around £35. The only problem is, is at the moment they don’t ship to the UK due to Brexit, but they hope they will be able to very soon. So if you have had your order cancelled elsewhere or haven’t been able to get, I would keep a look out on it for when you will eventually be able to get it shipped to the UK.

      be careful, when they do ship you will most likely have to pay 20% vat on top, many people ordering from outside the UK now are finding themselves with some unexpected costs

      I didn’t know about that, seems that items are going to be costing a lot more money to get shipped from the EU which is quite annoying.

      February 10th, 2021 - 11:47am

      yes, a lot of people on ebay are getting caught out with this

      Ebay prices now include VAT, which they collect on your and the government’s behalf, so you shouldn’t have a surprise charge. The new system is like Australia’s, so foreign retailers and sites like ebay are meant to collect British VAT up front. It’s dealing with this that is causing some foreign shops to halt or suspend UK delivery, because they don’t want the fuss. But to give an example, the Irish store you mention, if signed up, would remove Irish tax (as a foreign sale) and replace it with VAT, so your final price would be almost the same. This is how European Amazon branches are already doing things.

    I think amazon may be out of stock for pre orders as I think I may have messed up. I am not a Prime member and so usually pay the extra for delivery to be on day of release but when I ordered this on Nov 23rd, thinking it would not be as manic a situation as the classic series blu ray box sets and watching the pennies with Xmas coming up, silly me decided to not pay the extra postage. When the date of release was announced I was initially given a date of 12th Feb for delivery. And within a few days that changed to 15/16th Feb then closer to release it became 12/13th . This morning it changed again to 15/16th Feb and then tonight, it is now showing March 31st!!!! I have been in touch with amazon to see if I can change the order by paying for delivery tomorrow. Not possible as they have no stock and can not estimate when more will arrive…if ever. I asked about this end of march date and she said they will review the order then if still not fulfilled. If they get stock , I (apparently) will be allocated one but the only option she can offer is to cancel which I declined. I am starting to look at getting another one elsewhere as I am not confident amazon can fulfill it. What is galling is I know people ordered far later and have already had them

      I have been similarly shafted

      Correction – Amazon came good for me!

      Amazon told me mine was out for delivery on Saturday the 6th of Feb to arrive on 8th Feb. When I tracked on the Monday it said “Undeliverable.” I contacted an Amazon Customer Support Advisor who said it had been damaged in transit and they would give me a refund. When I said I just wanted a replacement, they said no…just a refund. I asked them was this because I had pre-ordered it at £25.99 in December and now it was £36.59 with them….they actually replied “No comment.”

      Maff, are you sure that wasn’t a third party “fulfilled by Amazon” price? Amazon had sold out by release day and the buy box had altered to a third party seller that they dispatched. Otherwise you were unlucky and had a smart alec staffer who didn’t know the correct procedure – if you did buy again from them and that was their own price then you’ll be able to get the difference refunded.
