    Earlier had this in hand in HMV and it seemed tiny compared with the limited version. I’m definitely sticking with the limited versions.

    I have a question regarding the optional CGI effects from the DVDs. I know all previous special features from the DVDs is included including the optional upgraded CGI effects (in this case the stories Kinda and Earthsock) but have those versions been upgraded in quality as well or will those versions be as they were on DVD?

      All episodes have been given the “HD” treatment. But a couple of them get that, as well as new CGI. Hope that helps.

      But are the ones that had new CGI done for the DVDs also in HD? So say I select on either Kinda or Earthshock which had new CGI for the DVDs would that version of the story be in “HD” as well?

      I did not make that as clear as I meant . I meant if I select the optional CGI on Kinda and Earthshock that had new CGI done for the DVD would that be in HD as well?

      I’m pretty sure they just transfer the CGI from the SD to the HD version of the story. I don’t see why this would be hard to do.

      It all depends on if the original cgi masters exist or not to render them in hd. I’m not 100 percent sure on this but I believe some do and some don’t. I’m not quite sure on which ones though. For ones that do will be in hd. For ones that don’t will be just an upscale

      Thanks Gordon. I thought that would be the case. It would be interesting to know which masters do exist.

      But the normal footage in DVD CGI versions is still HD? I don’t really mind if the CGI itself is in HD or not as that understandable. Its hard to explain exactly what I mean.

      If you mean the episodes themselves, they are always in HD on the blu-rays no matter if you turn CGI on or off. Hope that helps.
