BBC Studios announce release of Season 14 in the Doctor Who: The Collection Blu-Ray range.

Doctor Who fans will be delighted to hear that BBC Studios is releasing Season 14 on Blu-Ray. Tom Baker’s third series as the Doctor will debut on Monday 20th April.

Doctor Who – The Collection: Season 14:

  • THE MASQUE OF MANDRAGORA
  • THE HAND OF FEAR
  • THE DEADLY ASSASSIN
  • THE FACE OF EVIL
  • THE ROBOTS OF DEATH
  • THE TALONS OF WENG-CHIANG

In 1976, Doctor Who took a dramatic new turn, electrifying audiences with changes in format,
companion and appearance of the TARDIS. Season 14 saw the departure of the Doctor’s long-term
companion Sarah Jane Smith, and the introduction of Leela. The season contains some of Tom
Baker’s most iconic serials, with intrepid investigations in Victorian London, deadly robots in a
murderous whodunit, a return to the Doctor’s homeworld, and one of the saddest goodbyes in Doctor
Who history.

Producer Phillip Hinchliffe led Doctor Who through a creative high, joined by Elisabeth Sladen as
Sarah Jane Smith, Louise Jameson as the Doctor’s captivating new companion Leela and guests
stars Tim Pigott-Smith, Stephen Thorne, Peter Pratt, Pamela Salem, David Collings, Christopher
Benjamin and Trevor Baxter.

With all episodes newly remastered from the best available sources, this Blu-ray box set also
contains extensive and exclusive special features which include:

  • Immersive 5.1 surround sound – The Deadly Assassin
  • Brand new audio commentaries – Tom Baker and Matthew Sweet on selected episodes of
    The Face of Evil and The Talons of Weng-Chiang.
  • Behind the Sofa – New episodes with Tom Baker, Louise Jameson, Philip Hinchcliffe, plus
    companions Sophie Aldred and Peter Purves.
  • Our Sarah Jane – Elisabeth Sladen Tribute – A feature-length look at the life and career of
    Sarah Jane Smith, played by Elisabeth Sladen.
  • Whose Doctor Who Revisited – Toby Hadoke meets the producers and grown-up stars of
    the very first Who Documentary.
  • In Conversation – Matthew Sweet chats to producer Philip Hinchcliffe.
  • Blu-Ray trailer – Louise Jameson has trouble with her new home assistant.
  • Brand new interviews
  • Rare archive material
  • Convention footage
  • HD photo galleries

The eight-disc box set also includes hours of extensive special features previously released on DVD.

Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and Louise Jameson as Leela. The Master reappears in The Deadly
Assasin, played by Peter Pratt. RRP: £56.16

    Finally getting my copy (Australian Version) here in New Zealand today. It’s been a long, long wait but I’m sure it will be worth it.
    Can’t wait for an announcement about the next set, though I’m guessing it might be a while.

    Now sold out on Amazon by the look of it, the only ones listed for sale are from Amazon scalpers, starting at £99… Hope everyone who wanted one managed to get one this time round

      Can i make an observation?

      If you take a quick glance at the front page in the merchandise section every day ( or several times a day if you like) no one need miss out on anything, that’s what we are here for

      Fully endorse your comment because of your relentless commitment. This site and BBC Weather are all you need to plan your day.

      Because of this site I got my copy today at lunchtime. I tried to do the right thing with this release and buy it from Argos to support them rather than Amazon and it is the first release I missed out on since 1985. I felt like I wanted to stop collecting. In fact I did.
      This site posting the re-ordering re-fuelled my interest in merchandise.
      There is a great community spirit in collecting and chasing for bits.
      I am very grateful to this site.
      All the best,
      The Monitor

      Yes I agree,
      BooBoo, I’ve been regularly viewing this site for years now and I’m sure my collection would be much, much smaller if it wasn’t for you and this great site.

      I found this site when the BBC store closed and redirected here.
      Wish I’d found it earlier.
      I buy much less than I used to 10-15 years ago (young family!)
      But the site is invaluable for making sure I don’t miss out on the stuff I really want to get (eg the Blu ray boxes).
      I check it every couple of days.
      So thank you Boo boo 🙂

    What’s the difference between the first run and the reissue? Does it have second edition on the bottom like season 12 reissue. The reason I ask is that mine has arrived from HMV and appears to be a first run copy.

      Mine is the same, and also from HMV. I think because the first run was under-produced due to the lockdown, this is not an official second edition. I know that when Amazon relisted, it was just an update to the existing listing, so the same AIN.

      A couple of friends got copies this time and comparing couldn’t find any differences …which is great, so as Rory said no 2nd edition.

    I’ve just had an email from Amazon, saying that they’ve revised the delivery date, and Season 14 will be with me by Friday.

      My copy was supposed to be delivered yesterday , but I got a email from Amazon yesterday saying it would be a day late. Well I have got it this morning! Looks forward to watch this starting with the List Sladen tribute.

    Does anyone have any sets arrive from Amazon today for the re-issue? I can see that people have had them from HMV but I think Amazon were the only other retailer to have re-issue copies for pre-order?

    Mine arrived this morning In great condition from HMV , packed in cardboard box. Glad it wasn’t in a padded envelope. Usually order from Zoom but they were sold out this time, so used HMV for the 1st time.

    That’s my copy just arrived from HMV, so anyone else who ordered from them should expect theirs soon.

    It was very well packaged, so in top condition.

    I read somewhere that the Season 12 reissue was marked as a second printing on the packaging. Where was it marked? I don’t see anything on the Season 14 box.

      Season 12 had a slightly different spine picture and had 2nd edition printed on the base. Season 14 second wave from what I can see has a thinner spine ( so no overlap of back cover) and is a slightly different shade

      July 27th, 2020 - 2:28pm

      Rory , just received mine this morning from HMV. it doesn’t have the 2nd edition printed on this time. I have the rerelease of season 12 and 2nd edition is printed on the bottom (underneath).

    • MJS

      July 27th, 2020 - 2:44pm

      It’s quite possibly *isn’t* a second edition. I think covid might have seriously dented distribution so there may well be plenty of 1st Eds still in warehouses to go out. Maybe.

    Good news and bad news. Mine arrived this morning from hmv, but the box is badly damaged and they have no more in stock. I suppose its the discs that are important but its very disappointing.

      @Timelord44, how badly damaged?

      I now have a copy from the first run which is going spare. It has a scratch down the spine, but is in otherwise great condition. If you’re interested, PM me on Facebook (Rory Cruickshank) and I’ll send you some pics

      Also got mine from HMV this morning. The outer packaging is soggy and damaged, haven’t opened it yet! Here’s hoping….
      I’ve noticed Argos haven’t stocked it this time, I’m wondering if the very limited 2nd edition release and the difference in packaging will make even more money for the scalpers? Prices on eBay auctions had been tumbling to near retail, I wonder if this might push them back up again. About time for the whole set to get a standard packaging re-release.

    • Timelord44

      July 27th, 2020 - 3:57pm

      Rory. Thank you. Its squashed on one side Looks like it was done before dispatch as the package itself is fine. Denis I agree. While there are no new releases they should re release the whole lot in standard packaging. I’d buy them again as its a more practical case.

      July 28th, 2020 - 2:37pm

      Amazon have done available right now if you’re quick 🙂

      Thanks Tom. Really appreciate it. I missed it but really appreciate you letting me know.
