50th Anniversary Collection 11 CD Soundtrack Tardis Edition

SilvaScreen 50th Anniversary Tardis Box Set

Can occasionally be found by searching

This unprecedented collection of seminal music from the BBC TV series, Doctor Who, is being produced as a one-off limited release.

Doctor Who: The Tardis Edition is a boxed set of eleven CDs collecting Original Soundtrack music from 50 years of Doctor Who and housing them in a specially constructed Tardis.

Composer and BBC Radiophonic Workshop Archivist Mark Ayres has spent over a year researching, compiling, editing and mastering the set with the principle work being done on the first seven discs which will showcase much material being released for the first time.

The initial fruits of this work being made available last year as the four CD release – Doctor Who: The 50th Anniversary Collection.

    Great idea but poorly executed. The TARDIS box is utterly awful. I’m not normally one who talks about pin point accuracy, but this is so very obviously out of proportion. The dimensions are clearly wrong.

    Bit disappointed with the TARDIS box. It’s too fat and too glossy. Needs perfecting

      I’ve not got the precise dimensions of the TARDIS case, but looking at the image and comparing the sizes there with a standard DVD case, I estimate it to be approx 22cm wide and 36cm tall. According to plans of the TARDIS I’ve come across, the dimensions of the real one are approx. 127cm wide and 246cm tall (excl. light)

      The width is approx. 1:5.77 & the height is approx. 1:6.83 (to remain to scale it should be either 22cm wide x 42.6cm tall; or 18.5cm wide x 36cm tall) – so, yes, it’s slightly wider than it should be proportionately.

    Very disappointed with this, no new music from series 1 to 7, just rereleases. And most of classic music is also being rereleased from the 4 cd special last year 🙁

    might sound a daft question but is it one set per order or can you order more than one?

    • Johnny

      March 23rd, 2014 - 9:14pm

      You can order as many as you want.

    Will these cds play on US cd players?

    • booboo

      March 21st, 2014 - 12:34pm

      don’t CD play anywhere?

    • Johnny

      March 21st, 2014 - 1:19pm

      That’s correct – CDs play anywhere.

      DVDs/BluRays are region encoded.

      March 21st, 2014 - 4:22pm

      I think they do, but some import’s won’t work on CD players. I’ve got a CD from Australia that wont’ work on my CD player or laptop, but will play on my desktop and in my car! Not that this answers the original question, but it should work on something in the US!

    • Steve

      March 23rd, 2014 - 1:59pm

      As a rule, CDs will play on any CD player – the only exception that I am aware of are CD-Rs which some on-demand suppliers use, which may not always work on all players

    It has now been confirmed that there is no post-2005 music on this set that hasn’t already been released.

    Effectively, you’ll be paying £135 for around 8.5 discs if you bought all the post-2005 CD releases.

    February 5th, 2014 - 2:57pm

    is the tardis part of this set?

    • Johnny

      February 6th, 2014 - 8:21am

      Yes, the TARDIS box is limited edition packaging, if you would read the information posted above where it says:

      “…Silva Screen will be releasing an 11 CD set, one for each Doctor, all presented in a specially created Tardis….”

  • Thomass

    January 22nd, 2014 - 9:08am

    For all those who are interested in this release, I’ve just seen via Silva Screen’s Twitter feed that Blogtor Who are running a series of artwork and notes from the release, up to disc 9 at present. Images show which episodes will have music featured.

    Looks amazing, just waiting for them to announce the pre order!

      Might be better if they sent it to everyone

    I’ve been waiting for this for weeks, it’s going to be my 21st birthday treat for myself and I’ve been saving up. When’s it coming out in stock? I never got the email. Please somebody tell me and send me a link, I really want one, I’ll be devastated if they don’t have it.

    • booboo

    When the pre-order closes you will no longer be able to purchase the TARDIS Box Set and it will not be available in any other on-line retailers or shops. The current price is £135 plus postage and packing and we will deliver to anywhere in the world. There is a possibility that the price will be less than this, in which case you will be charged the lowest price when your order is completed.[/QUOTE]

    Looks like I’ll be ordering the 4-disc set. Not paying £135 for the 11 disc set.

    • Sunny

      December 21st, 2013 - 1:30pm

      Does anyone have this link to pre order? Thanks

    • Cara

      December 23rd, 2013 - 4:28pm

      I’m gonna try and get this

    • Johnny

      January 6th, 2014 - 9:42am

      @ Sunny – The pre-order link was sent directly to those who signed up for advance notification, but it *might* be on the Silva Screen website.

      Have you tried looking there?

    • Johnny

      January 6th, 2014 - 9:46am

      Just looked on the Silva Screen website and the link is not active. You may have missed your chance to buy this as it will most likely sell out to those who pre-registered interest.

      It is *only* available from the Silva Screen website and will be unavailable anywhere else.

      I’ve seen when they released the series 7 with the covers it missed it on sliver screen but got it on eBay but I’m gonna try and get it saving up and waiting for an email haven’t seen a pre order button to order it

  • Johnny

    December 13th, 2013 - 3:04pm

    Just got an email about the 11 disc box set:
    There will be a seven day timed pre-order to make sure that everyone has a chance to order one of these limited items. The opening and closing dates of the pre-order and exclusive link to buy will be published on this newsletter shortly…

    • oodlesofood

      November 18th, 2013 - 9:50am

      There was a Soundtrack to it released not long after the Movie came out, although it is now quite hard to get hold of.

  • Chellak Androz

    November 8th, 2013 - 9:13am

    I was just wondering if this product is the same as the “50th Anniversary 4-CD Set” ( but with as TARDIS box set?

    • booboo

      November 8th, 2013 - 9:52am

      i dont think so, i think the tardis one will have a lot more more not 100% sure until they release full details

    • Chellak Androz

      November 9th, 2013 - 7:02am

      Oh ok, thanks Booboo

    • Johnny

      December 2nd, 2013 - 9:40am

      The tracks on the 4CD set will be replicated in this 11 disc set.

    • pwilc1967

      December 2nd, 2013 - 10:03am

      Online details from Silva Screen state there will be previously unreleased content.

      I received an email with a link to register my interest so it is “possible” this may only be released by a specific distributor and not go on general sale. Only 1000 copies.

      I would recommend anyone interested sign up to the Silva screen newsletter to get updates

    This looks great, I love what Silva Screen’s do for the Doctor Who soundtracks!

    I just hope the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors discs will be predominantly new previously unreleased music so they can include some of the tracks they missed. Although, this maybe more difficult for the 11th Doctor as they where doing the fabulous 2 disc editions for all of his series and they very rarely missed anything out!

    However, if they can manage that then this set would be another fantastic Silva Screen release!

  • RoryDarvillPond

    November 7th, 2013 - 8:00pm

    could be priced at £50 i’m guessing

  • dr who who

    November 7th, 2013 - 5:08pm

    This tardis set, does this contain all new music even for the 9th, 10th and 11th doctors that’s never been released???

    • booboo

      November 7th, 2013 - 5:08pm

      we dont know the full details yet

    • dr who who

      November 7th, 2013 - 5:11pm

      Ok, will probably buy this anyway. Looks awesome 🙂

    • Elliott

      November 9th, 2013 - 8:06pm

      This seems a bit farfetched to be honest. In an interview (I don’t have a link) Murray Gold stated that he wrote over an hour of music for EACH episode, despite only being 40 minutes long.

      November 11th, 2013 - 6:25pm

      That’s so the editors can choose which ones to use.

    Might get one of these sets, depends on the prices.

    November 7th, 2013 - 4:22pm

    Any idea on price? Can’t find it on the BBC shop or Amazon.

    • booboo

      November 7th, 2013 - 4:23pm

      not yet, waiting for full details


    November 7th, 2013 - 4:03pm

    Do these come inside the Tardis or is it just a display prop?

    • booboo

      November 7th, 2013 - 4:03pm

      think they come in the Tardis from what they have said


      November 7th, 2013 - 4:06pm

      Then I’ll be getting it for definite.
