At least this replacement disc arrived in reasonable packaging.

No the mug didn't come with it as compensation for yet another mistake.

Sorry; I'm sure the question has been posed and answered elsewhere, but I've been struggling to keep up with things for a while. What is the problem with the original "The Leisure Hive" BD from the Season 18 set?

Also, are there any known problems for which replacement disc/discs have been announced for the Season 19 BD set?

Thanks very much.

The Leisure Hive was missing the original mono soundtrack .
I don't believe there's been any further news on any corrected discs for season 19, I believe there was a few issues with a few TARDIS interior scenes such as a scanner screen oversight.

The US DVD version of The Macra Terror just arrived today from Amazon. I guess we're back to the 6 month wait from the UK versions being released. I already watched a bootleg version of the animation a while ago but all my sources for getting the UK versions before I buy the US versions have dried up. Miss those days.

It's such a shame the £ is so weak, that converts to around £4 more than it would've been the last time I purchased $ currency and is well over the £15 customs safe limit.

I believe the UK re-release is now confirmed to be the same packaging as the original; anyone considering selling their set to CEX for silly money has missed the chance if they haven't already done so - the price has crashed to £40 now!

I have a feeling the reissue of the UK version of Tom Baker's first season will sell out pretty quick. So maybe hold off on selling any version.

I bought using Amazon Import Fees Deposit, where amazon withholds import duty, this was later refunded when it got through, so no dreaded PO fees anymore.

They are talking of a may/June re release of season 12.
Then probably Davison's anniversary season 20 after that with Pertwee's final season (11) and Hartnell's season 2 wrapping up the years releases.

A Hartnell blu? Really? Where did you get that info?

It's always been the aim of the team to get a mix of releases out there and they fully intend to release all the classic show within this Blu-ray range, mainly due to the success of season 12 and the range as a whole.
Hartnell's may be 2021 as these do get pushed back it seems.

Troughtons final season has also been suggested at some point so that would balance it out nicely.
