  1. So just 12 episodes then; ie Not the whole story from each doc?

    £60+ is a bit steep for that, isn't it? (Yes, I know there's a book included but still!)

  2. Hmm, I've just realised this is a DVD-only box set. Bit disappointed that there's no Blu-ray option.

    Also, thank goodness the TV Movie is included, as otherwise poor Sylvester McCoy would be stuck with "Time and the Rani" as his only representation!

  3. There's only the Ten episodes that's (possibly) made in HD anyway. Not sure the others would look that good up-scaled; would they?

    Also… £36 on Amazon!!
