    Yes, A Gorgeous cover indeed. Just browsing Ebay today and a Guy is selling these. (He as about 10 in stock). I thought I’m sure it’s not out yet so I checked my Amazon account and sure enough it’s not out while next month. I thought they must be Pre-Orders so I checked his site on Ebay again and there’s no mention of Pre-Orders, so I’m not sure what’s going on there.

      Will it be a Pirate booboo. Just double checked and he’s definitely selling them as in stock.
      It’s the DVD Version and he’s selling from Miami, Florida, America.

      you will have to link to it i cant see it

      I think it’s just a way off buying lots off stock from Amazon or hmv on preorder then sending them too people who buy them I did see myself on eBay other day a seller listed season 25 already up for bidding auction

    • Snowman

      July 10th, 2024 - 5:03pm

      Let me know booboo if that’s the correct link. (I’m not good with links)

    • booboo

      July 10th, 2024 - 5:12pm

      looks very suspect to me

    • Snowman

      July 10th, 2024 - 5:20pm

      Yes, I agree. The more I look at the listing the more I think there Pirate Copy’s. Converting Dollars to GBP he’s only selling them for around 20 pounds. That’s way too cheap for a complete Season

    Largest type of standard steelbook is a stacker case but it’s only designed to hold 6 discs, 3 either side. I’m wondering what’s gonna happen with the extra disc, hope they’re not just gonna force it in.

      You can see the inside of the steelbook on Amazon.

      Star Trek TOS steelbooks are the same format. The hubs actually hold 4 discs.

      Many thanks Gordon.
      Looking forward to getting the season and rewatching some of the episodes.
      Quite a nice selection of extras. Will probably get the standard blu-ray

    • Bookcollector

      June 27th, 2024 - 4:21pm

      Really looking forward to watching these episodes again. Nice that the tales of the tardis is included.

  • Tom Williams

    June 13th, 2024 - 11:57pm

    Preordered this on hmv recent but dk when they take payment for it as I more a person who likes too pay first too secure a copy is rare wave worth buying from ?

    • Rex F

      June 14th, 2024 - 2:41am

      Assuming you mean Rarewaves, they also charge on dispatch. It’s all in the relevant T&C/FAQ sections of the two retailers, as are the slightly different rules for PayPal. You really should be reading this stuff before you order anywhere, and immediate charge for a preorder doesn’t always guarantee a copy anyway.

    • Tom Williams

      June 14th, 2024 - 1:43pm

      No true as I pay for iteams on preorder up front so can happen with certain websites esp if u do it on eBay the most now days but I’m more waiting for the artwork look first too preorder proper

    • Rex F

      June 15th, 2024 - 12:39am

      I hope you enjoy your set.

    • Tom Williams

      June 15th, 2024 - 1:00am

      Ohh I will thanks especially getting the discount and saved money

  • Darren collier

    Why never available on 4k UHD plus 60 th anniversary come on RTD crazy

  • Richard

    May 8th, 2024 - 2:56pm

    Ordered mine with Amazon, can’t wait!

  • Alanoffthefence

    May 6th, 2024 - 8:34pm

    Judging by the lack of comments / interest and given the asking price of this l just don’t see it selling out, there’s every chance it will be on a discount by the time Black Friday arrives.
    I would imagine a re-release of 1, 2 or 9 would sell out faster, Marvel are doing well at eroding their loyal fan base and l really hope the Beeb don’t do the same with Who.

    • daz

      May 6th, 2024 - 11:00pm

      It’s sold over 1 thousand on Amazon already so it will sell out. The steelbooks always do. People will be waiting to see some of the episodes no doubt.

      As for the price. It isn’t really expensive as it is 9 episodes. The 60th steelbook was £30 for just 3 episodes back in December and that sold out.

    • Ju

      May 7th, 2024 - 11:13am

      The figures for steelbook sales on this are much higher than the standard Bluray and DVDs already.

  • HS

    May 6th, 2024 - 9:51am

    For anyone wondering, it does include The Church On Ruby Road.

    • D84

      May 6th, 2024 - 9:50pm

      Great thanks for the confirmation

    • Anon

      May 8th, 2024 - 2:55am

      There is confusion over this. Amazon say yes, other retailers say no it’s not on. The run time seems to contradict the inclusion of church. We know episode one is 55 mins assuming the other 7 are 45 mins that makes 6hrs 10 mins.


    May 1st, 2024 - 4:51pm

    I had a hunch/fear the BBC would stop physical releases.
    So happy to be wrong
    Instant pre order

    • Anomie

      May 1st, 2024 - 5:43pm

      Same here, really pleased this is coming out

    • GallifreyStands

      May 7th, 2024 - 2:59pm

      Why would they as BBC Studios biggest selling is DrWho dvd/blurays

      Also they are just over half way on The Collection on bluray

  • AlbertoFrog

    April 30th, 2024 - 8:55pm

    It has apparently been confirmed, in reply to someone who emailed the BBC, that Ruby Road will be in the Series 1 set.

  • Summer Harlequin

    April 28th, 2024 - 11:52am

    There are 8 episodes and only 6 hours and 10 minutes of content does not make sense

    • Gordon

      April 28th, 2024 - 1:17pm

      That’s an average of 46 minutes per episode. That run time won’t include extras as it’s the main feature running time

    • Anon

      April 28th, 2024 - 3:59pm

      I don’t know why people are finding this hard to get. Run times on DVDs never include extras. Just go and look at your shelves and you will see that. A two hour movie with three hours of extras has a runtime listed of two hours.
      The 60th anniversary set has a runtime of 171 minutes or in other words, the episodes, the extras are not listed as part of that runtime. The season episodes must have dropped from Jodie’s longer episode lengths back to the average of 46 mins they had originally when the show came back.

  • beef

    April 26th, 2024 - 4:58am

    If it doesn’t include the Church then I’m not going to bother since it’s not really a complete set, and getting a whole blu ray just for one special isn’t my thing

    • D84

      April 26th, 2024 - 2:16pm

      I am in the same boat – expecting Church to be included on this, and if its not – I wont bother.

      I’ll wait until a full set comes out with Church + main series

    • Gordon

      April 26th, 2024 - 3:06pm

      Going by the runtime listed on Amazon I suspect it won’t be included

  • Judooning

    April 25th, 2024 - 9:57pm

    Instant order. Not risking missing out

  • Harold Shand

    April 25th, 2024 - 6:56pm

    This may be a question that has been answered elsewhere, but why is it Season 1?

    • Anon

      April 25th, 2024 - 8:44pm

      New production company so they must have decided on starting again. Seems daft though.

    • daz

      April 25th, 2024 - 10:29pm

      As per iplayer. Classic Who is 1963-1996. Modern Who is 2005 to 2022. New Who is 2023 onwards.

      Disney+ only has 2023 onwards so could be potentially daunting for a new viewer seeing Series 14 listed and thinking they are 13 series behind which are not available on the same platform.

      Makes sense to reset to Season 1. Fresh start as the 60th Specials were a soft launch. And a new fan can delve into the shows history if they want to once they are hopefully invested in the new show.

      Either way it is all Doctor Who no matter what you call it. Some classic fans say it is Season 40 for example.

    • Harold Shand

      April 26th, 2024 - 11:08am

      I can see the disney thing, so I guess it makes sense.

      Though New Who is now Modern Who………to make way for the ‘new’ New Who.

      I like the way old shows are now called ‘Classic’, so I may adopt that to describe myself.

      Tell the kids I am not OLD, i am CLASSIC.

  • Ryan Hennessy-Saunders

    April 25th, 2024 - 5:42pm

    Hopefully this will include The Church On Ruby Road

  • MJS

    April 25th, 2024 - 5:11pm

    Price generally drops upon release

  • daz

    April 25th, 2024 - 2:48pm

    Must be today’s announcement. And yes £60 seems a lot but it is the steelbook which usual adds a tenner to the price.

    The 60th Specials last year was £30 for just 3 episodes though so not too bad really, maybe.

    • D84

      April 25th, 2024 - 2:56pm

      Yea no collection announcement today then as this is out

      Maybe next week, fingers crossed
