    Hi, hope someone here can help me! My husband is a huge fan and has lots of the recent series in blu ray steel books. Am I right that the series 11 blu ray steel book is only available from Amazon? I saw a post that it doesn’t include the previous one off special so what’s blu ray would that be on? Sorry I’m a bit clueless but hoping to get him a good present!

    do we think this might pop up reduced on Prime Day or Black Friday or any other day things Amazon do given that it will probably still be available given the amount of cancellations?

      I certainly think it ought to be around £40 which the last 2 Capakdi Steelbooks were, although I think I paid £36 for Series 10…

  • Star Lord

    After much deliberation I’ve decided to cancel my pre-order of this. I enjoyed the series but the price and lackluster artwork on this just isn’t doing it for me. I know it may become rare in the future but I’m just not liking it enough.

    Does anyone know if the series not yet released in steelbooks of new Who will still happen or has the release of the Doctor Who collection put that on pause.

      getting the sense series 3 perhaps did not sell well so may have put pay to series 4 if its happening it will probably juts pop up

    • The Flying Shark

      January 3rd, 2019 - 11:23am

      I agree, I think Series 3 sold poorly, the artwork wasn’t that great to begin with (and the packaging is the only selling point for the steelbooks really as everybody has the stories already) and HMV, the only store to have them physically and therefore the biggest chance the public has to casually see them, put the price up from £25 to £35 in about a month, so that can’t have helped.

    • booboo

      January 3rd, 2019 - 11:34am

      Amazon wont have helped either , they kept messing around with the image and even now just have “Doctor Who 3” as the title, easily bypassed by the casual shopper

    • Whovastron

      January 7th, 2019 - 3:56pm

      Amazon had it for sale on Prime day last year, I didn’t even fully believe it was the series 3 steelbook until it showed up. The title was just ‘Doctor Who 3’ And the Image was The I side of the steelbook. Luckily it was the actual thing, but it was a gamble and I bet many missed out on the deal. It’s a real shame because we won’t complete the collection, they could have put the specials in the series 4 Set, and the 50th in the series 7 Set

    Will this sell out quick or will it stay like the series 10 steelbook has, and will it be more expensive or cheaper

    • Rob W

      December 26th, 2018 - 6:39pm

      I’ve no idea whether it will sell out. As for the price, the 2 previous Capaldi Steelbooks were £40 on release so this seems somewhat overpriced in my opinion.

    Think we’re confusing disappointment over the lack of original artwork with actual quality.

    Most of us were gushing over this image in February and it does look nice here.

  • Canan

    December 17th, 2018 - 11:16pm

    Also I really hope they have different things on each disk. Amazon!!!! It’s not just the box that makes it limited edition or a collectors item…It’s the detail…which this seasons steel book design clearly lacks

  • Canan

    December 17th, 2018 - 11:11pm

    Not only is this steel-book unappealing to the eye…it’s also incredibly inconsistent. I have everyone of the steel book releases…even the incredibly rare season 9! And this design is by far the worst…yes, even worse than the season 3 design. All of the other cases have special fan art on the front and back of them…this does not!!! They also contain the words on the side of the case. NOT plastered all over the front cover. I’m so disappointed in this collection. I really thought it would finally look like an actual doctor who collection. I guess I was wrong. It’s starting to look separate. Only a couple of the seasons have the same consistent design. THIS IS NOT A COLLECTION. It’s certainly not a proper one. Why make a limited edition collection when your just going to ruin it with this. It’s lazy, sloppy and unoriginal. I’m furious with this amazon

    • Lee Granfe

      December 20th, 2018 - 4:24am

      The Series 5 steelbook came before any of those. Were you moaning that design wasn’t used for the ones after that?

    • Canan

      December 24th, 2018 - 9:52pm

      Of course not!!!!!!! That steel book wasn’t part of a collection. That was a stand alone release. This collection is supposed to be 1 big collection of blu ray steel books. Everyone of them so far have just had fan art on the front and back and then the logo on the spine. This one has now ruined the collection.

    I remenber Eccleston and Tennant series box set … full of extras and Audio Commentaries / Christmas specials included/ booklet/ words from RT Davies and Great packaging…
    Now we’ve got limited edition without half of the above…
    Thanks BBC for not pushing people to buy dvd / BR sets …

  • Ryan Croughan

    December 13th, 2018 - 10:44pm

    My gut tells me to get the standard Blu Ray because the design is so much more appealing – but the completist tells me to go for the steelbook so it can sit nicely and ordered along with series 1-3 and 10 (and hopefully future steelbooks of 4-8). With all the other steelbooks having specially commissioned artwork it was a no brainer purchase, but this is the first time I’m not sure. Which one does everyone else think they’re gonna go for?

    • Colin

      December 14th, 2018 - 1:22pm

      I’m in the same boat ISH…I like the outside of the steel book but love the inside case of the normal box set

      But I’ll stick with steel book I am collecting them all too just bring on 4-8 now

    • DalekAgent

      December 14th, 2018 - 6:05pm

      Me too, i prefer the blu-ray cover and design but i think im still gonna get this steelbook though because theres always a chance this might become really rare like the Series 9 steelbook did

    • Rob W

      December 14th, 2018 - 6:14pm

      With the previous steelbooks atound £40 this still seems overpriced…

  • Andy

    December 13th, 2018 - 7:34pm

    Is it right to say, this won’t have the Twice Upon a Time Christmas Special from Capaldi AND it won’t have the New Years Day Special for Whittaker???
    That really makes no sense, especially as it comes out almost a month AFTER they show the New Years Day special. Please someone tell me I’m completely wrong and both episodes will be included.

    • SJF

      December 13th, 2018 - 9:37pm

      Nope, neither

      Just the ten episode in Series 11.

  • Lior Zarzhetsky

    December 13th, 2018 - 5:10pm

    Decided to cancel my pre-order. Given how ugly the artwork looks and how odd it would look next to previous releases much rather get the normal bluray instead.

    • Rob W

      December 13th, 2018 - 6:46pm

      I think it’s also overpriced as the 2 previous releases were £40 or so.

      No. There’s a separate DVD and BluRay release for that, goes on presale in the UK from Friday 14th December, but available to order now from Amazon US. Released mid-Feb.

    Is it werid

    I do wish the beeb would shoot doctor who in 4K

    • J45ON96

      June 21st, 2018 - 7:26am

      Unfortunately the current standard mandate is 1080p shooting. Because of the advent of Planet Earth II in 4K, we’ll see a slow adoption of it, it took three years between Planet Earth (Which, coincidentally, was the first HD program filmed by the BBC) and Planet Of The Dead, the first HD Doctor Who episode. It’ll happen eventually, but they work at their own pace for adopting these things, really!

    • Doctor Stu

      June 21st, 2018 - 12:21pm

      Doctor Who filmed in 4K lol they don’t even have the budget to edit in the right TARDIS on the Jodie Whittaker announcement they ain’t filming in 4K for a long time (sarcasm)

    • Anonymous

      June 23rd, 2018 - 2:49pm

      They should start shooting doctor who in 4K, It would be a waste if they didn’t
      It’s the beginning of a new era, time to upgrade

    • J45ON96

      June 25th, 2018 - 7:24am

      I disagree, especially with a VFX-heavy show like Doctor Who, once you push the filming format up to 4K, you need to upgrade the VFX, or they’ll lack the requisite resolution to gel properly on screen. This is coming from someone who absolutely loves 4K as a format, as well, by the way!

      It’s easier recording a practical-effects-based show like Planet Earth II or The Grand Tour in 4K, as you’re al always filming a physical subject, but in Doctor Who’s case, you’d have to chop off a larger amount of the budget than ever for the VFX, at risk of taking the budget away from other things. It’s not something I can see the BBC investing more money in right now, either way. They’ll work on practical based shows in 4K until it’s more cost effective to do it on a wider scale.

    • Zobles

      December 13th, 2018 - 1:51pm

      Maybe they will release an upscale 4K box set like they did with Twice Upon a Time?

  • Star Lord

    June 20th, 2018 - 4:02pm

    Not usually one to pre-order something before I’ve seen it, but having collected the Series 1,2,3,9&10 steelbooks I’d hate to miss out on this, great to see they’re continuing with these releases 🙂

  • Alex

    June 20th, 2018 - 1:22am

    Pre-ordered it, simply because I’ve been getting all the steelbooks so far and it’d be silly to pass this up! Though in saying that, I reeeeally hope they use artwork for the steelbook to keep it somewhat consistent with previous releases. More paranoid that they’re going for a Series 5 steelbook release which…no.

    • Leon Kerr

      June 20th, 2018 - 11:35am

      They’ve released loads of steels since that all in “normal” steelbook packaging. Dont see why you’d be thinking they’ll go back to that design 8 years on…

  • Moodbeam

    Just placed my order. I would imagine that the trailer will be dropping soon in order to help promote this. It’s also noteworthy that the main cast of S11 are attending SDCC soon and I cannot imagine that they’ll hold a panel without any kind of trailer prior.

    • The Outcast

      June 20th, 2018 - 1:43pm

      Defo going to be a trailer before SDCC. Doubt it’ll come this month, but certainly July will bring us a trailer.

    Not One Trailer, and the series isn’t out
    and they announce the dvd
    The series is bound to finish in December
    and this should be released Say January, February
    6 months in total and the pre Order is up
    And 3 months ish till the season starts, not finishes
    That’s 3 more than most dvd releases
