      this happened last time but most people got it on release date or even before, we certainly did. I think they allow for postal times in case they don’t use their one drivers for some reason.

    Hi guys, don’t know if it means anything or not. But Amazon emailed me today, saying my expected delivery date would be 25th of June.
    NOT the 27th as a few people mentioned below.

      Did you pay for earlier shipping?
      I went for free and received an email stating the 27th

      I too have the email that mentions “New estimated delivery date: June 25, 2022”

      same but had this before and always got on the Monday, if not before, i think they are just being cautious in case they have to use post rather than their own vans

    • Coleman

      May 19th, 2022 - 5:18pm

      No, I didn’t pay for earlier shipping.
      But when these collectors sets go up for pre-order I usually order straight away.

      Same 25th but understandable in the current climate, the release date is still 20th

      It’s saying 27th for me as well.

      I think it will still be dispatched when they have stock, I recall my Star Trek 4K set being given a week later on estimate but still came on release day.

      I hope this will be case here.

      Ive had the same (Amazon) saying this set will arrive on 27th. The last couple of Collection sets that i have had via Amazon have all been the same – showed shipping and arrival date around a week after the actual release date and then the weekend before it comes out on the Monday i get a pop up saying “oh its coming tomorrow now”

      Im expecting this one to largely follow that pattern too

      Finally – hopefully will mean the animated serial will also get a fixed date soon and then at least one more collection this year.

    • Bobby Fackrell

      May 17th, 2022 - 9:26pm

      And hopefully that is series two

      And 8 and 24 for us standards.

      Hurrah – we have a date at last, and it’s the day before my birthday excellent!!

      20th June has been listed on bluray.com for a little while so great to see a confirmation here.

      Going by an Australian shop listing of early august I suspect we might get abominable in July.

      Regarding the standards I feel it’s probably still too soon for 24 this year. We Might get 8 before the end of the year though.

      I do think we might still get 3 sets this year all depends on when we get the next announcement (hopefully soon)

      May 18th, 2022 - 1:02pm

      Gordon i too am hoping for 3 sets overall this year.

      Last year we got 2 releases crammed in the latter ish half of the year if memory serves me correctly – after S8 arrived in March.

      And ive seen other posts around here which say that those who work on these sets had around 4 in various stages of development

      Lets hope

      Lots of future sets being worked on such as the art on the Wilderness Years

    • D84

      May 21st, 2022 - 1:06pm

      I was going to drop in a quick message – anyone got at hints on what’s next – or when we may see an announcement?

      S9 and S2 seem to be heavily rumoured and whilst I am going to collect them all if I can, I am very much looking forward in hope that we will see a “Wilderness years” set. This was when I first got into Doctor Who (early 90’s) via UK Gold ‘re runs but also all of the non Canon material and “looking back” type programmes. I also genuinely like the Paul McGann film so can’t wait to see what has been assembled if that one does arrive

      At a little convenmtion i went to earlier this year in Sheffield Katy Manning, Maureen O’Brien, and Peter Purves were all there. Peter Purves let slip on his panel talk that he and Maureen O’Brien had last worked together on the old season 2 blu-ray and then Maureen said you’re not supposed to mention that and he just laughed and he said oh bugger it they’ll know soon enough. She did later say to me personally that she doesn’t know how all the secrecy works but its out now and she said it will be released soon [lee binding said to me that 2022 is all the twos, so thats 22, perhaps season 2, and the season from 1972???]. Katy Manning had mentioned rewatching the sea devils and i asked what it was for and she said by not telling you what I’m telling you what darling. I think for sure we will be getting 9 and 2 next. Louise Jameson was recently seen doing something near the lighthouse for horror of Fang Rock in season 15, and also Lee Binding posted something about the cessair of diplos from season 16… he had said to me other than 22, there were four other set artworks that he had finished or was close to. Make of all this what you will…

      May 21st, 2022 - 2:05pm

      The Wilderness set is a definite, Lee was working on the packaging back in April.

      The series 2 trailer is ready go as soon as 22 is released.

      There you go that’s all I know, but no doubt people will complain about this post

      May 21st, 2022 - 7:26pm

      So what be in would be in The wilderness years boxset ,apart from the Mcgann tv movie?

    • D84

      May 22nd, 2022 - 1:36pm

      I would imagine at least we would see “More than 30yrs in the Tardis” along with Scream of the Shalka. If they can sort the release rights we may see Dimensions in Time (unlikely) Curse of the Fatal Death is also a possibility. I’m sure there is much much more that can be assembled from the archives

      May 22nd, 2022 - 2:37pm

      I don’t know what the final deal was between the Beeb and Universal (does anyone?), but the eventual US dvd copyright only mentions the BBC – so did they complete a buy out? If so, the eventual Collection set could presumably make use of master materials and whatnot from the Universal archives.

    While the wait continues its worth pointing out the Big Finish sale this week! Eighth Doctor series three and four are half price – while stocks last

    Paul McGann and Sheridan Smith are fast becoming one of my favourite Doctor/Companion teams ever and I think McGann might well be my second favourite Doctor now. I have heard most of series 1 and 2 but just got series 4 on CD and download. I think the CDs are going out of print soon so definitely worth a look. Sale is until 22nd May. 4.99 each, I brought the whole series for about 43 with postage that’s the same as one of these sets

      Hopefully we can get two more this year. Hopefully seasons 2and 9 . Maybe in September and December.

      May 18th, 2022 - 11:47am

      I picked up most of the ones in the sale too, they’re amazing. And McGann and smith work so well together.
      McGann is probably my favourite doctor to listen to on big finish

      He has a very concise smooth velvety tone to his voice Paul Mcgann. I can listen to anything he does but him and Sheridan Smiths relationahip is so down to earth and would have transferred so well on television.

    • Bobby Fackrell

      May 22nd, 2022 - 7:50pm

      Lucie Miller is the best 21st century companion, better than all the TV ones, and Sheridan Smith is amazing. They work so well together

      Long wait.

      Although its such a good season so its more than worth the wait, and at least we are getting closer to actually knowing something

      True – agreed

      I personally view it as a good season too
