    So Zoom have dispatched this and taken money but it doesn’t seem to have turned up yet and a lot of people has. Any recommendations?

      Today is release day. So I would recommend waiting until the end of the week. If it doesn’t show. Then contact Zoom.

    Got this set and so happy that the next time trailers have been restored finally.

    Only one issue and that is that on the card slipcover, it says that Steven Moffat wrote all of the episodes and it lists the directors of the 2009 specials rather than the directors who actually directed Series 5… the content on the discs though has no issues as far as I am aware

      Frame rate is 24fps Which means there is slowdown

    Does this set contain any new content or is it just the same discs in new packaging?

      Bit pointless then. I’ll just stick with watching them on iPlayer for now.

      Next time trailers have been added. The video commentaries have been switched to just audio

      I’ve bit the bullet and ordered. It’s my favourite series of the show, along with reduced discs. Which might suggest different disc art. Stunning packaging and my favourite Doctor. Might pick ip a steelbook frame and keep it protected instead of viewing.
      Man being a collector is expensive!

      Mine arrived this morning! It’s the same content as previous, but only over 4 discs instead of the previous 6. The first disc has 4 episodes rather than split across 2 discs as in the first release, for example.

      Mine arrived today too.
      Lovely artwork. Looking forward to Series 6 and 7. Be interesting to see what they do for the 50th Collection.

      Mine has arrived. Stunning! So happy I decided to purchase!
      I’m definitely going to purchase a steelbook frame. Artwork like this deserves to be displayed!

    Am I the only one thinking it would be better to wait and see if all the new Who seasons are released as part of THE COLLECTION in say 5 years time?

      I mostly buy them because I like the art on the steel books.

    I really hope down the line they do The 50th Specials steelbook but in 4K Blu Ray. Name, Day, and Time would look amazing in 4K

    • TrixieTiger1995

      I find this very unlikely. If anything it would be an upscale and awful HDR.

    Anyone know of any discount codes for Zoom or Zavvi? : )

      Try SIGNUP10 for Zoom if you are a new customer for10% off.

      You now need to sign up for Zooms newsletter as the SIGNUP10 code was being re-used and they rectified this. The code will then be sent to you but cannot be re-used.

      I don’t think any of the steelbooks have had any delays yet, so we should be good!

    • Richard Turner

      Only to improve them from the original series releases. I’ll take that.

    This looks amazing, but Rory’s face looks odd.

      I think it’s been flipped the other way round

  • Prowl

    I like the starry night look it is taking. A good series to add to my DW steelbook collection. I do wish they would have just had villians on the back like the first 4 did though.

    I wonder if they’ll change the content on the discs? There’s no way this series needs to be on the six discs it’s already on, and could comfortably fit on four I think. Pretty please?

    • Anonymous

      December 16th, 2019 - 10:34am

      Retailers say it’s 4 discs

    • Rob W

      December 16th, 2019 - 3:06pm

      So a a new AVC version then (unless the retailers have made a mistake) as the 2010 release was 6 discs and VC1.

    • The Flying Shark

      December 17th, 2019 - 7:44am

      Fantastic! Is it likely Series 6 will be put on four discs if possible as well when that gets its steelbook, as that doesn’t need to be on six discs either , does it?

    • Rob W

      December 17th, 2019 - 10:08am

      Series 6 was an AVC encode, so I think they’ll stick with the 6 discs mate.

    • Gordon

      December 17th, 2019 - 10:41am

      Unless they use the 2013 USA masters which is 4 discs.

    • Rob W

      December 17th, 2019 - 11:37am

      Could be, the 2013 USA version is AVC 1080p too.

  • MJS

    December 16th, 2019 - 9:39am

    Aw no. I wasn’t going to buy this as I had the ltd ed season 5 Steelbook. But this is gorgeous. Now I must have it.

    • Mark C.

      December 16th, 2019 - 9:53am

      Me too! I said to myself I’d stop with the specials steelbook as I already have series 5 onwards on blu-ray…but ‘WHO’ am I kidding? Pre-ordered.

      Looks like it. The episodes including Next Time trailers were all passed for release by the BBFC recently.
