Wow! I hope they do Steelbooks for series 1-8 also even if it would cost a lot of money.

It's going to be a very expensive collection if they release all the Doctor Who's all the way back to William Hartnell. I think from 2005 onwards would be a safe bet i personally loved Christopher Ecclestone and David Tennent's Doctor's because the Story's during 2005 - 2010 were the Best one's went a bit pants after then.

The only classic Who BD is Pertwee's Spearhead From Space so I'd image that would be the only steelbook. The rest of new Who could see such releases though. I'm a big fan of Matt Smith as well as Eccleston. I won't be buying this one in any format. This series didn't work at all for me.

For £40 i would have expected more in the Design. They should have had an image of the TARDIS for the inside artwork instead of The Doctor and Clara holding hands. And no writing is a bit dull. This will be very expensive for a Doctor Who fan glad i'm out.
