    It doesn’t feature all the DVD features. For example the Dalek tapes.

    • Auton

      The Dalek tapes will probably move to a move appropriate boxset so perhaps it might move to the Daleks disc in season 1

      Everything will be included eventually. They are moving things to more appropriate places. For example Christopher Barry: director was originally on creature from the pit and has been moved to the daemons which is far more appropriate for that documentary. Think dalek tapes will be on season 1 or quite possibly season 25. It would be a great companion piece to the davros connections documentary

    Got mine for Christmas and when i opened it today i was very surprised to see the beautiful Season 10 Artwork ahah, looks like i’ll have to contact dvdsupport too.

      Tom Press, I got mine late and found the wrong discs. Called dvd support and after a while they replied saying they cannot switch the discs. Either a refund or you keep them as they are.

      It won’t work. Got mine late and called them. They say that you can either have a refund or you can keep them as they are.

      this is BBC support?

      I think Condo has made a mistake as they will give you the right discs. He probably asked Zoom or something.

      They said to me that as long as you bought it from a genuine retailer and have proof of purchase they’ll replace the discs. I got mine off ebay so they wont replace them but I’m just happy to have a copy so I’m not bothered.

    • Tom Press

      February 14th, 2021 - 2:31am

      Yes i contacted BBC DVD Support and showed them proof of purchase, then they sent me out a new set of discs in standard BluRay case 🙂

    Have the same issue, just got season 12 and it contains season 10 discs. Will try emailing dvdsupport see what happens

    • Bob

      November 22nd, 2020 - 9:33am

      Ages ago, my copy came with discs using the Season 10 art but the BBC did (eventually) send me replacements and I got to keep the misprinted discs so you’re actually lucky as you will end up with two copies of Season 12

    • Sanj

      November 29th, 2020 - 10:16pm

      Follow up….

      Contacted the email and they are doing a disc exchange. They said it will take some time with Covid but they have my details and will send out replacements at some point.

      I did check the discs i have and they do contain season 12, just the image on the discs is season 10.

    Hi Guys, can anyone help? I ordered this from Zoom and just got it, but the disks are all Season 10!? Do I contact zoom or the BBC?

    Thanks for any advice.

    • booboo

      November 21st, 2020 - 12:38pm

      Try Contacting with proof of purchase

      Zoom will probably just offer a refund but I’m disappointed to see they are still selling this with the wrong discs.

      Mine was OK

      Are the discs alright or are they the misprinted version?

    • Planet Robot

      November 22nd, 2020 - 11:14am

      Just got mine and it’s the Season 10 discs as well….so disappointed as I had hoped this was a new corrected batch at last.
