    Does anyone know if there’s ANY version of this boxset with a Blu-ray Amaray case and not the ugly cardboard one?

    Zavvi have the final artwork now. It appears that they’re sticking the mock up image but it includes a “booklet of facts” which could be cool. :L

    How come blu Ray is 6 disk and dvd is 7?

    • Philip

      January 10th, 2016 - 7:28pm

      You can get more information on a blu ray disc that a dvd…

    I’ve had trouble ordering this over the past few days. Dunno if it’s the same problem other BBC sites have had or my internet, which has been a bit tricky. I had another go late last night & just managed to put my order through for the new year bonus discount with minutes to midnight. It wasn’t easy but I got there.
    I don’t think the price is much higher than last series. I was quoted in the region of £55 in a shop for them to order s8. I decided to look online & found not only the BBC shop, but their exclusive for around £20 less. No exclusive this year, but their price is lower on that site, especially when one uses discount codes.
    I’m not usually one for listening to every commentary, but I think Sleep No More will be essential along with the Extra – just to figure out what the hell it’s about & what they were thinking.
    Lots of content, including the Doctor’s meditation, that I haven’t seen. Roll on 7th March ( or soonest date thereafter ).

    Glad they included the Christmas specials. That was my main issue with the Series 8 pack they put out!


    December 23rd, 2015 - 3:18pm

    So I guess there will be no BBC exclusive variant, shame

  • Ash

    I’ve got series 9 part 1 so is it worth getting this?

      Sell part one and get this 😛

    Hope this Doctor who series 9 set comes with the doctor’s meditation and prologue be a shame if there not in the set

  • Cymon

    Hopefully they might do another digi book blu Ray like they did with season 7. It would be nice to see a special edition for season 9

    BBC Shop also have a 10% voucher available for purchases over £30…have pre-ordered the Blu-Ray set for a whisker over £35.

    £20 less than RRP isn’t bad!

      Just preordered and paid, yes. Can skip, sleep no more and this year’s christmas special, once will be enough with River. Adore 12 though.

    • Nicholas

      December 23rd, 2015 - 11:17am

      You haven’t seen the special. Why pre judge?

    I hope this is the same set we’re getting in North America. And they better keep the same cover image too: I’m not planning to buy the Part 1/Part 2 sets anyway but I was very disappointed they chose non-Jenna images for the Region 1 releases. I didn’t expect both Christmas specials, which will be a bonus. It’s a shame it doesn’t look like a gag reel will be included (though the raven blooper I’m sure will be as part of the online stuff) but I’m intrigued by the deleted scenes.being included.

    • Bigwhofan

      December 21st, 2015 - 2:49pm

      You could say the online thing IS the gag reel??

  • 2doctors2000

    December 21st, 2015 - 1:21pm

    I wish they produced the boxsets in the same style as the 2014 re-releases….
    I really liked the consistency of the timeless logo etc.

    • Alfie cook

      December 21st, 2015 - 3:50pm

      It says artwork tbc hope it is in the style of the part 1 and 2 seriesn9 or the series 8 boxset

    • 2doctors2000

      December 21st, 2015 - 4:22pm

      But it still isn’t going to be consistent with the 2014 rerelease with the classic logo and the grey style top border thing

    • Nicholas

      December 23rd, 2015 - 11:19am

      I don’t think they are allowed to put the classic logo on current series (2014 – ). The only way they could is if the BBC change the show’s logo to that classic one (which I think they should cause I’d like to have a uniform collection)

      December 24th, 2015 - 8:37am

      I can’t stand river, that’s why once will be enough.

  • daz

    December 21st, 2015 - 1:12pm

    If it does indeed include 2014 and 2015 xmas specials it makes the chance of a full series next year even less as they usually hold back the most recent xmas special for the series 10 set.

    • 2doctors2000

      December 21st, 2015 - 1:18pm

      Exactly what I said on the DVD version of this article!
      Much like the series 7 boxset.

    • Mark Brewer

      December 21st, 2015 - 2:02pm

      Unless, of course, season 10 boxset is released in 2017…in which case the Christmas special could be included…

    • the doctor

      December 21st, 2015 - 5:17pm

      And unless they have already confirmed its a full season next year

  • danny

    December 21st, 2015 - 12:44pm

    no Last Christmas its like S7 box set all over again

    • ahunter8056

      December 21st, 2015 - 12:52pm

      “The Complete Boxset also contains the 2014 Christmas Special, Last Christmas and this year’s highly anticipated, The Husbands of River Song”

    • The Doc

      December 21st, 2015 - 1:15pm

      Danny? Are you alright it clearly says ‘The Complete Boxset also contains the 2014 Christmas Special, Last Christmas and this year’s highly anticipated, The Husbands of River Song’

    • Cymon

      December 21st, 2015 - 1:16pm

      If you read the info above it says this set includes both Christmas Specials

  • Alex

    December 21st, 2015 - 12:01pm

    About time this showed up! Bit steep though, but at least they’re including the Xmas special in it again.

  • Matt Young

    December 21st, 2015 - 11:52am

    The link doesn’t work for either UK shop. And why is Series 9 so much more expensive (£20 isn more) than Series 8?

    • SomeFunnyDrWhoReference

      December 21st, 2015 - 12:29pm

      It’s an RRP. Chances are it’ll change (most likely lower)

    • Nicholas

      December 21st, 2015 - 1:21pm

      It will go down in price. The price is easily justified though – this boxset is easily the most jam packed since at least the RTD years! This includes;
      14 episodes,
      3 commentaries,
      8 behind the scenes,
      6 documentaries,
      and 7 other extras.
