The Doctor Who Collection Standard Editions are here! With two more sets announced as coming soon
The day is finally here and the Standard Editions of Doctor Who: The Collection – Season 12 and Doctor Who: The Collection – Season 19 are out. Originally released in 2018 in limited edition deluxe packaging, the two sets not only revisited the restoration of the episodes and upscaling them to HD, but supplemented the already expansive set of documentaries and extras with even ore content. Their limited nature meant they sold out quickly upon release. And so the patient wait for non-limited standard editions began…
Releases within the new, standard packaging Doctor Who: The Collection range feature a standard, plastic blu-ray case inside a slipcase, plus a condensed, standard-printed 12-page booklet featuring disc breakdowns and selected illustrations. This new range will include all of the watchable content and special features included in the Limited Edition Packaging release, and will be available for the foreseeable future.
Season 12 is the first series for the beloved Tom Baker as the Doctor. From a giant robot and the insectoid Wirrn, to the return of the Sontarans, Cybermen and Daleks, it’s often considered one of the strongest runs of the show ever. Season 19 is also the first for its Doctor, this time in the form of Peter Davison. Across its seven stories the new Doctor must contend with a reinvigorated Master, a shocking encounter with the Cybermen and more.
Plus, the next brace of Standard Edition Collections are already available for pre-order. Doctor Who: The Collection – Season 10 and Doctor Who: The Collection Season 18 will be out in the new format on the 5th of July. The tenth anniversary season is book-ended by Jon Pertwee’s Doctor teaming up with his predecessors William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton to face the might of Omega, before one of the most touching companion exits in the shows history. While Season 18 is Tom Baker’s swan song in the role, with a shadow of impending doom hanging over its twenty-eight episodes.
Meanwhile, the limited edition library is continuing to build. Season 24 will be arriving in the limited edition format next month, on the 21st of June.
