    does anyone know where us uk fans can see theres?

    • Some bloke

      May 3rd, 2013 - 9:29pm

      that’s what I wanna know, and also, will we (in the UK) be getting a dvd release of these?

    • drjakeyoung

      May 3rd, 2013 - 9:33pm

      no, because we will be getting the regeneration box set which is exclusive to us (the UK) and so it is only fair that this release is exclusive to the US. Although you could always just import it from amazon if you really want it!

    • Some bloke

      May 3rd, 2013 - 10:03pm

      I’m thinking of doing that but only if i can find a way to unlock the region code on my blu-ray player (which also plays DVD’s)

    • drjakeyoung

      May 3rd, 2013 - 10:04pm

      you could look it up online and follow a guide? Is it even possible to unlock a region code?

    • Some bloke

      May 3rd, 2013 - 10:05pm

      yeah, all the ones i find don’t work ๐Ÿ™

    I hope they do one for all the Doctors here on the UK. I like the idea. The only classic I own on DVD is The 5 Doctors, so I wouldn’t mind something like this. I have watched a few classic episodes, they are great, but I don’t really want them all on DVD but if I could have at least one story from each Doctor, that’ll be nice!

    • drjakeyoung

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:12pm

      if you are looking for something like that, then get the regeneration box when it comes out! it looks awesome!

    • Sam Bentley

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:18pm

      Yeah I think that is what I’ll get… if it is of a reasonable price of course.

  • drjakeyoung

    April 8th, 2013 - 6:46pm

    official confirmation from BBC worldwide!:
    Dear Jake

    I am pleased to confirm the Regeneration Box Set will contain the below stories


    Kind Regards
    DVD Enquiry Line

    looks like it contains what it says on the title!

    • Some bloke

      April 8th, 2013 - 7:24pm

      OOOHHHHHH, so are these the same as the release’s out now, or are they re-release and re-re-releases (caves of androzani)?

    • drjakeyoung

      April 8th, 2013 - 7:28pm

      i think they have no extra’s on them unlike the normal releases, but i think they might have documentary’s on each episode (a bit like this doctors 1-4 release). The tenth planet will be released latter this year on it’s own but with all the special features that were not on this release.

    • Sam Bentley

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:05pm

      I really think they should have included one of the series 6 episodes which feature Matt’s Doctor regenerating. I know it wasn’t a proper regeneration but I think it’s only right to include a bit of Matt for a 50th anniversary special DVD boxset like this.

    • drjakeyoung

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:11pm

      And a bit of Colin! As there are no full episodes with Colin in!

    • Sam Bentley

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:17pm

      That’s a good point! Colin is my third favourite of the Doctors so it would nice… I am considering buying all the multi Doctor DVDs in time for the 50th… so I might purchase the Two Doctors… I’m not really up-to-date with DVDs… are all the multi Doctor storys on DVD (excluding Time Crash, Dimensions in Time etc.)?

    • drjakeyoung

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:19pm

      yes, all bar dimensions in time are available on DVD

    • Sam Bentley

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:25pm

      I think that might be a good boxset, seeing as the 50th is to be a multiDoctor story a boxset of all of them would be nice. Maybe even DiT ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Tim M

      April 14th, 2013 - 6:21pm

      Well I certainly WONT be buying this box set! I already have most the stories (apart from the as yet to be released ‘The Tenth Planet’). I don’t see the point in buying them again.

    April 7th, 2013 - 10:32pm

    Hey booboo I know it’s off topic but do we know if the 50th anniversary is just one 60min ep or more then one ?

    Thanks in return

    • booboo

      April 7th, 2013 - 10:40pm

      i would like to think there is more to it than just one 60 min episode but nothing has been confirmed

    • josh smith

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:24am

      no steven moffat said its longer than 6 mins

  • pathdw98

    April 7th, 2013 - 9:17pm

    I absolutely love the cover art for this. Even though the episodes in this have already been released (3 times in one case), I would buy this if it does have a u.k. release. Does anyone know what eps they are doing with doctors 5-11 in this series?

    • drjakeyoung

      that is the working title, just like the last cyberman.

    • Sam Bentley

      April 6th, 2013 - 10:21pm

      I don’t think that is actually correct… if it is I am rather disappointed with it.

      That was a review by a user of amazon. It was not written by amazon so it is not confirmed.

      April 9th, 2013 - 3:58pm

      even if that is the title they won’t give his name
      because if they do it will ruin the point of the show and they will have to change the title of the show to something like doctor Jeff of doctor bob
      or even doctor fred

    • drjakeyoung

      spearhead from apace again? for the 4th time? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

    • JD95

      April 6th, 2013 - 9:27pm

      I don’t think that they are making another edition that would be pointless because the first 3 stories have all been given at least two releases I just think the box set will be made up of the new Aztecs which has Galaxy 4, The Revisitations 3 Tomb, the Spearhead that was in the Manequin Mania box set and the original Pyramids of Mars.

    • Gordon

      April 6th, 2013 - 10:33pm

      It’s more for fans that don’t already have them

    • Gordon

      April 7th, 2013 - 12:45am

      Dont expect any extras or any bonus episodes that was on the original dvds. (so no galaxy 4 or any documentaries from the original or se dvds). Just expect the documentarys that was broadcast on bbc america, the intro from steven moffat and the episodes. Thats all

    • josh smith

      April 7th, 2013 - 2:28pm

      but everyne has this?

    • Gordon

      April 7th, 2013 - 8:45pm

      not the newer fans that don’t normally bother with the classic series releases. It’s to give them a taster

    • josh smith

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:25am

      really i thought people watched the classics first i got into dr who in 2003

    • Gordon

      April 8th, 2013 - 10:15am

      There is quite a fair few fans who only only watched the new series and has never seen little or none of the classic series.

  • drjakeyoung

    April 6th, 2013 - 1:04pm

    i am going to be very annoyed if the second box set of this contains the visitation SE as i have already pre ordered it, and that is one of the only PD stories i have. (i am more of a 60s and 70s classic who fan)

  • Nicholas

    April 6th, 2013 - 11:19am

    I may have to buy and import this from

    • josh smith

      April 6th, 2013 - 2:57pm

      why do you want it so badly?

    • Some bloke

      April 6th, 2013 - 3:00pm

      yeah same, but thats only if they dont release it anywhere else (namely the UK)

  • Some bloke

    April 6th, 2013 - 10:47am

    On the Regeneration Box Set page on this site, Gordon (a comment-er) reckons this could be the regeneration boxset. I hope it is cus I really wanna see the revisited episodes and I think it would just be a nice set to own

    • volcanic7383

      April 6th, 2013 - 11:39am

      Its probably all of the doctors revisited and clips of all the regenerations

    • Gordon

      April 6th, 2013 - 11:54am

      At first I thought it could be but since the price has been revealed I’m not so sure. Using a currency translater I’ve realised there is about 30 quid of difference between the rrp of doctors revisited and the regeneration box.

    • Volcanic7383

      April 6th, 2013 - 12:13pm

      Probably all the revisited episodes

    • Existent Being

      April 6th, 2013 - 12:59pm

      They have documentaries every month so the chances are we would get 4 box sets.

    • Existent Being

      April 6th, 2013 - 1:32pm

      I meant 3.

  • Colinjohn

    April 6th, 2013 - 9:50am

    It seems that America is getting more out of the 50th Anniversary than we are in this country unless they intend to show these special docs later in the year but somehow I doubt it

    • Anonymous

      April 6th, 2013 - 11:58am

      Or release them on DVD here under a diffeernt name? There’s a set still sitting there without any information due around the same time here.

      the main reson is that the BBC are trying to make the US watch BBC. but this is anoying for us in the uk because we have to pay to watch the bbc and with USA geting all these exslosive

    • josh smith

      April 7th, 2013 - 2:29pm

      we dont pay for the bbc do we?

    • booboo

      April 7th, 2013 - 2:33pm

      We pay for the programmes via the licence fee

      BBC Worldwide is a commercial arm who sell the products

    • josh smith

      April 8th, 2013 - 8:26am

      soory but wats a licence fee? im a bit conduced is it because they dont have adverts

    • The Flying Shark

      April 8th, 2013 - 9:02am

      A license fee is where you have to pay so much a year to watch television. If you don’t have a license, it’s illegal to watch televison.

      April 6th, 2013 - 12:30pm

      The first Doctor broadcast in America was Tom Baker on other stations prior to BBC America, America fans also get the same DVD releases we do in the UK (even getting a Key to Time boxset well before the UK I believe), with the exception of The TV Movie which was only released recently due to rigths issues with Fox. However I don’t think America got the same level of repeats of Classic stories the UK got in the Wilderness Years on BBC 3 and UKTV so this is probably one of the first times these stories have been repeated there.

      I live in Chicago and have been watching the Doctor since 1970. It was harder to find but it was here.

    • George

      April 6th, 2013 - 6:05pm

      Actually, the first Doctor to air in the US was Jon Pertwee, on KRON, then the NBC affiliate station in San Francisco, in 1973 (only lasted through 1974). However, Tom was the first Doctor to appear on PBS stations across the US (I first caught The Doctor in episodic form June 1981 via KRMA in Denver; I’d already seen Dr. Who and the Daleks on a late-night “creature-feature”).

    • Anonymous

      April 7th, 2013 - 1:35pm

      Yes quite it was Jon Pertwee who was the first Doctor. Mainly because none of the broadcastsers were interested in black and white television, even though many of the eventual broadcasters in the PBS stations were still using it.

      Imagine how many more episodes we might still have today if they had been bothered to buy it.

    Im not getting it iv got all the storys and its really expensive! And i dont know if its going to be in Australia as well so im not getting this one! Looks good the box set but im not buying it.

    • Gordon

      April 6th, 2013 - 9:55am

      Its being marketed more at casual fans than fans that already own them.

      April 6th, 2013 - 6:10pm

      Actually, I take (part) of that back. I didn’t realize that WTTN in Chicago had been broadcasting Dr. Who since 1975, or that they started with The Mutants. For that matter, KTEC in Los Angeles started in ’75, too, with Dr. who & the Silurians, and other PBS stations started earlier. Ya learn something new every day. Fantastic!
