    New email for me has come through saying it will be 1st/2nd April haha. Seems like it really will be pushed back one day at a time. At this rate it’ll eventually end up coming out after season 14 is in hand!

    Despite getting an earlier e-mail today from Amazon saying the release date has changed to 30th March, just received another update from Amazon saying it is now 31st March.

      Plot twist: every day it will be announced that the release date will be pushed back another day. Like a Christmas advent calendar, but not a pleasant one

      I remeber getting something similar with Season 23, it was expected to be delivered the day after the release and it arrived on release date

    There’s one possitve in all of this I suppose. I’ve noticed several eBay scalpers listing this on eBay for around £70 (some more some a bit less) as a pre order so they will be affected aswell… silver linings and all that
