Classic Doctor Who on DVD

I also bought the Avengers Tunnel of Fear R2 DVD because it was never released in the US. That one I couldn't copy directly but it does play fine on my computer with the DVD player turned off on my Mac computer and using the VLC player. I also have a separate DVD player hooked up to my Mac with the region thing turned to R2.

I've not looked into this thread for some time and wasn't aware of the classic Dr Who's being collected into BD sets. I've ordered the Doctor Who – The Collection: Season 14 but it looks like I've missed the boat on the first Tom Baker set unless I want to pay silly money. I notice the US sets are more reasonably priced but the numbering is confusing. So you have Tom Baker season 1 AKA Season 7but its also described as AKA Season 12???

So If I order the UK Season 14 which US season do I need to order to ensure I'm up to date with Tom Bakers run to date?


Even more confusingly Dr Who Complete S12 is Jodie Whittaker. It's a bloody minefield

Hold fire on buying USA Tom Baker set as the out of print Uk release is getting. Reprint later this year.

I like the look of the US sets however, Standard BD case, unlike the bulky UK packaging and the US set is cheaper.
I went for US, nice small amaray, and title of "TB complete s1" makes more sense to me!

$24.99 is a bargain too (I paid more)

BTW US S1 had 2 replacement discs (1 and 6) its earlier in thread, but maybe fixed now.

Tom bakers first season (1) is season 12 of who , it's not AKA season 7, that's Tom's final season ,known as season 18 which was the third collectors box set released.

Amazon's allocated stock have now gone. I'd advise people who want a copy to keep a close eye on zoom, hmv and zavvi as they should be getting stock soon.

Some folks on GB seem worried that Amazon have sold their allocation; surely a serious miscalculation of the demand by BBC Worldwide if that's really the case. Miwk tweeted that their wholesaler has no access to it yet.

All gone again , I do wonder if some stock is being held back for other retailers, otherwise it seems they haven't done a large number of reprints.

Any idea if they are planning to re-release any of the other Collectors editions in the UK (e.g. Season 18)?

Also, any clues on the next one up after Season 14?

I don’t think so, I think they are only re-releasing Season 12 due to the fact the didn’t print enough at the time (unlike the later releases) so people missed out, plus it was advertised as having ‘limited edition packaging’ rather than the whole thing being limited edition.

I believe it’s Season 20 after 14, but that may change.

These limited edition sets won't be re issued in their current form, but who knows , they may release them one day as complete doctor sets, or maybe in different amaray style cases, however with physical formats on the decline this may be the last time we see classic who on disc.

Season 20 should be next, and season 2 and
11 are strongly rumoured in the near future.
Season 17 has already had new extras produced also.
