Doctor Who DVD / Book: Regeneration – More Details

Doctor Who Regenerations box set

With thanks to BBC Worldwide…

Doctor Who Regeneration
Available from 24 June 2013

The Doctor Who Regeneration set is a beautifully packaged, limited edition coffee table book-styled collectors’ album including six DVDs and over 10 hours of Doctor Who footage.

The collection features each Doctor’s iconic regeneration episode; from the first Doctor played by William Hartnell, exhausted after battling the Cybermen to Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor suffering from radiation that had been unleashed by the Great One (a giant spider); and from the spectacular transformation of the Ninth Doctor to David Tennant’s emotional farewell as the Tenth.


The set is adorned with superb photography from across the era and features detailed and informative accounts of each regeneration. And if that wasn’t enough, new to DVD is The Tenth Planet featuring the Doctor’s first regeneration – beautifully restored with the missing fourth episode now brought to life with stunning animation.


Utilising the original soundtrack, off-screen photographs and a short surviving sequence of the Doctor’s regeneration the episode has been now reconstructed in animated form, incorporating the restored version of the surviving sequence.

A full list of stories included on the DVD are:

· The Tenth Planet
· The War Games
· Planet of the Spiders
· Logopolis
· The Caves of Androzani
· Time and the Rani
· Doctor Who: The Movie
· Bad Wolf & The Parting of the Ways
· The End of Time

      Redundant due to the events of The Night, Day and Time of the Doctor, which features the 8th, War and 11th Doctor’s Regenerations.

      I mean you could call it out dated it’s not redundant by any means it’s a nice set and what do you expect it’s a DVD set the show will always update and change makeing this set out dated

    Can anybody tell me who does the commentary on the Tenth planet?

  • JaffaCakes

    July 10th, 2013 - 11:52am

    Is the Tenth Planet going to be released separately or will it only ever be available here? I mean, it’s a lovely set of stories, and presented really well, but for someone who already has half of the serials included, I’m just wondering whether the Tenth Planet won’t be out on its own?

    • booboo

      July 10th, 2013 - 11:53am

      yes it will have a separate release

    • JaffaCakes

  • drjakeyoung

    June 27th, 2013 - 5:22pm

    My replacement copy has just been dispatched! I should get it Monday!

    • auton101

      June 27th, 2013 - 8:28pm

      why replace it, it only had a few scratches.

    • the astronaut of death

      June 27th, 2013 - 8:35pm

      well I agree with drjakeyoung if I got this I would want it to be in perfect condition

    • auton101

      June 28th, 2013 - 8:21am

      Nothings perfect, its limited edition you should be happy you got one in the first place.

    • drjakeyoung

      June 28th, 2013 - 9:42am

      The whole corner was dented, and considering i payed over £40 for it i at least want it in a good condition before i acturly open it. Anyway, just got my new copy and it hasn’t got any faults which is good, but it’s number is 7855, compared to 2163! Massive difference!

    • auton101

      June 28th, 2013 - 6:51pm

      Yeah i saw the review, the dent wasnt that bad, ive ordered mine and i should receive it tomorrow. Im looking forward to it.

    • drjakeyoung

      June 29th, 2013 - 9:37am

      Still though i don’t want to pay £40 for something that’s already got it’s value knocked off before i even opened it!

  • jaketorwho

    June 27th, 2013 - 3:00pm

    GOT MINE! and from a HMV store (Cambridge) they had plenty, so i chose one with no dents, the main reason i wanted to get in in store, so i knew if it would be damaged! priced £49.99, worth the extra fiver or so. beautiful set, love it all. worth every penny! 🙂


    June 25th, 2013 - 6:16pm

    Mine arrived today, watching the tenth planet, I love it! The old cyberman is a lot scarier and in my better a lot better. Found out so much about them from this episode.

    • auton101

      June 25th, 2013 - 7:02pm

      Im looking forward to receiving mine, ive seen the first 3 parts of the tenth planet and i loved it, the cybermen are excellent and scary, their voices are creepy aswell. Plus i haven’t got round to getting any of the regeneration stories so this DVD set is right for me.

  • The Comment Man

    June 24th, 2013 - 5:35pm

    Does anybody think they’ll be making a second one, an updated, new version? Or is anybody not buying it, not because they already have the DVD episodes but because they think it’s pointless because Matt is leaving and it won’t be included. Thanks

    • auton101

      June 25th, 2013 - 11:04am

      There isn’t any point as this is limited edition, making an updated one won’t make it limited edition. although it would be outdated in a few months time i suppose it doesnt really matter, smith might get his own limited edition book. with a early released DVD, this would make up for them announcing he was leaving after the product was due to come out.

    • The Comment Man

      June 30th, 2013 - 3:22pm

      yeah, thanks, but do you still think its worth it?

    • auton101

      July 2nd, 2013 - 11:21am

      yes its worth it, from when i received mine i should say get it.

  • DiavoloFelice

    June 24th, 2013 - 1:11pm

    Poster arrived today (24/06/13) in it’s own long tube, so looks like the posters are going out from the BBC, just not at the same time or packaged in the box as the dvd set.

    • DavidH

      June 24th, 2013 - 5:42pm

      How long was the tube?

    I like the look of this but i have half of them on DVD so thanks but no thanks.
    Good Luck to the 10,000 Lucky people who get one


    June 22nd, 2013 - 9:31pm

    Does anyone who already have this limited edition collectors ‘Regeneration’ box set tell me the size in height and width of the box? Either in centre metres or inches would be great. Thanks.

    • Tim M

      June 22nd, 2013 - 7:22pm

      I’m ordering mine from Amazon and I’m just wondering how well it will fit on my book shelf amongst other Doctor Who related merchandise?

  • UnitedGamers2013

    June 22nd, 2013 - 2:56pm

    Does anyone know if the non animated regeneration of the first doctor is on there too. I can’t find it anywhere

    • drjakeyoung

      June 22nd, 2013 - 2:58pm

      Nah, it’s all animated.

  • jaketorwho

    June 22nd, 2013 - 11:15am

    Does anybody know if this will be in HMV stores? Im going to one on tuesday and really want to get it in person so i know it wont get damaged in the post!

    • volcanic7383

      June 22nd, 2013 - 11:35am

      No because it is limited to 10,000 copies

    • UnitedGamers2013

      June 22nd, 2013 - 11:36am

      Sorry that was me i used my old username by accident

    • jaketorwho

      June 22nd, 2013 - 11:50am

      But amazon have it. As does so surely they will. Also i thought it was 100,000 copies.

    • booboo

      June 22nd, 2013 - 11:51am

      its def 10,000

    • jaketorwho

      June 22nd, 2013 - 11:53am

      Ah really! So I’m better off ordering online

    • jaketorwho

      June 22nd, 2013 - 11:57am

      What about a forbidden planet store?


      June 22nd, 2013 - 9:30pm

      I got my from BBC shop.

    • HalfPintOfInnes

      June 27th, 2013 - 11:03am

      It is in HMV stores…I picked mine up yesterday, there was another 2 sets there too

  • UnitedGamers2013

    June 21st, 2013 - 10:06pm

    Mine came damaged. It had a damaged corner and the box was dented. Did anyone else have the same?

    • The Greater Intelligence

      June 22nd, 2013 - 12:01pm

      I had that with my ‘Dalek War’ boxset, the box was dented, creased, ripped, and the ‘Planet Of The Daleks’ case was slightly bent and hard to close. The discs, however, we’re fine.

    • Andy Hall

      June 23rd, 2013 - 10:36am

      Mine arrived fine. Get back in touch with the BBC Shop and ask if you can be sent a replacement; it just means thry will ask you to send your damaged one back. Worth trying if you are not happy.

    • booboo

      June 23rd, 2013 - 10:37am

      what do you think of it? i have read a couple of extremely negative reviews

    • auton101

      July 2nd, 2013 - 11:23am

      I got mine yesterday, and its brilliant for someone who doesnt have any regeneration stories like me. Its worth it for £40.

    June 21st, 2013 - 5:11pm

    oh yay got this today

    • drwhobob

      June 21st, 2013 - 7:10pm

      really where from

    • trenzalore

      June 21st, 2013 - 7:11pm

      i think BBC shop is where most people have had there orders delivered today

  • UnitedGamers2013

    June 21st, 2013 - 3:27pm

    Mine has just arrived, but I have no poster. I will contact bbc shop during the weekend

    • The TARDIS

      June 21st, 2013 - 4:21pm

      Same here, opened it up to find a brilliant set, but with no poster.

    • drjakeyoung

      June 21st, 2013 - 6:12pm

      Same here! I contacted them and they said the following:

      Dear Jake Young,

      Thank you for your recent email regarding the BBC Shop.

      I have checked your order details and the offer of the gift was subject to availability.

      Unfortunately as the free gift is subject to availability and we are no longer able to source further stock therefore this has not been sent to you.

      Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience this may cause you.

      Kind Regards

      Stephanie Dineen

    • The Greater Intelligence

      June 21st, 2013 - 6:15pm

      Oh yes because the apology makes up for the exclusive poster, I see.

    • drjakeyoung

      June 21st, 2013 - 6:29pm

      I emailed them last week asking will i defiantly get it and they said YES.

      So i just emailed them back the following:

      I understand the offer was subject to availability.

      However, I recently emailed you asking if I would be getting the extras and your reply (below)clearly constitutes a contract to supply the poster.

      Dear Jake Young,

      Thank you for your email regarding BBC Shop.

      The poster will arrive with your order.

      If I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

      Kind Regards

      Tracy Reid”

      I have spent literaly over £10,000 on doctor who merchandise over the years. I dont want to take up the case with OFT if possible.

    • drjakeyoung

      June 21st, 2013 - 6:31pm

      So seeing as they entered into a contract promising me i would get it, so i cant see how they will get out of this one!

      I think they might have screwed up on all the orders.

    • UnitedGamers2013

      June 22nd, 2013 - 2:21pm

      Put a review on the regeneration box set page

    • drjakeyoung

      June 22nd, 2013 - 2:39pm

      i already have a unboxing/review on my YouTube channel, so booboo said i could link it on the ask a question page rather than putting it on the site.

    • DiavoloFelice

      June 24th, 2013 - 1:08pm

      drjakeyoung – You might get the poster today, as the regenerations box arrived here on Friday and the poster arrived today (24/06/13)in a large tube. So you still might get one.

    • drjakeyoung

      June 24th, 2013 - 1:22pm

      LOL I forgot to say that it acturly turned up on Saturday! It’s massive and i can see why it came separately!

    • DiavoloFelice

      June 24th, 2013 - 2:46pm

      I have to admit I was expecting it to be folded up down to A4 size and in the box with the dvd, but then I ordered this before the poster offer, so surprised I got a poster lol

      Anything thats free and a blue box is all good 🙂

  • drjakeyoung

    June 21st, 2013 - 10:51am

    My copy just arrived. Haven’t taken it out of the box yer so don’t know what it looks like, but this is because i am about to do an unboxing video!

  • matparks08

    June 20th, 2013 - 10:01pm

    I do like the idea of this, and I will probably get it, but as a celebration of 50 years it’s a real shame that Colin Baker doesn’t feature other than the beginning of Time and Rani and end of Caves of Androzani – just makes it feel incomplete – though obviously there’s not a full regeneration story for him.

  • prof horner

    June 20th, 2013 - 11:44am

    Ian Levine claims to have seen three tons of evidence that it is all true about the missing episodes. Why would he lie?

    • booboo

      June 20th, 2013 - 11:47am

      he wouldn’t, but until i see actual BBC confirmation i will keep an open mind, we have had “Dead cert” hoaxes before
