    It's a bit odd I think, since Tom's first season I think is one of the seasons most reliant on video (Along with "Key to Time" and everything from 23-onward) instead of film, apart from the exterior shots in "Genesis" and the cave footage in "Revenge". Unless they're using something similar to the Eccleston and Tennant seasons, which were still video but given a "film filter" or something like that. (Not sure Who restoration purists would be thrilled with that...)
    Makes me wonder if they'll do all of Classic Who. They'll run into trouble with 1963 - 69 lol.

    See this is something I brought up a couple years ago. They could sell Season sets of the Doctor and make a good penny in America. Since we live on Season sets. But yeah the price is $69.99 it appears for this. I think if BBC priced these a bit more reasonable ...around $39.99 , this would sell huge. They could do more. I mean here is a close comparison ...the Walking Dead blu-rays with 16 episodes and extras ....usually sell for $45 bucks a season set. That is brand new season sets they do each year.

    So your trying to sell a 40 year old series at a higher price point than a brand new show ? I'm still shocked that someone at BBC didn't slap a $100 price tag on it though comically.

    Well, the best way to ascertain it's value is by tracking down the individual dvd releases for the stories featured here (five in total), and compare them with this. Also all of the special features from those dvds will be included here. Plus a stack of newly created ones for this release.

    I have always said that the BBC puts an absurd value on these older episodes at times even with extras. One guy I knew who worked at FYE said that a lot of people would come in , look at the Doctor Who sets and end up leaving them there. Since they were priced out of reality. That the store pretty much stopped carrying them since they went years with the same ones sitting on shelves.

    I'm glad they are doing season sets and I can see why they are doing Tom Baker 1st. He's considered the most popular Doctor in America by many of that era. So start with him and build these season sets each year.

    Interesting, apparently I read that all the content which was on the Season DVD's will be included in the set (which will likely include commentaries with the lovely late Eliz Sladen) and some new special features as well. As for missing episodes I will assume they will plan to animate more in the future.

    The latest edition to my Weeping Angel collection - the Robert Harrop on the left. I love it! Some of their other models look fantastic too.

    Thanks I enjoy all of my DW collection, but I've had a soft spot for Weeping Angels since the fateful day that Blink aired :P Also, 'A Writer's Tale' arrived today and based on a quick flick through, looks awesome - any reviews?

    I've actually never read it, so I can't say anything about it. Probably should one of these days though.

    So there's at least one season 11 setting/time period confirmed with Alan Cumming as King James I, I think. Although maybe it's a case where he somehow comes along for the ride, like Nefertiti in "Dinosaurs in a spaceship" or (in the original series) "Timelash"....but given that the show has visited the 17th century perhaps more than any other time period save the present, I'm guessing this is going to be another semi-historical story.

    Given that it's relatively soon after Queen Elizabeth's the first's reign I'm curious if the writer will bring her up, although it's unclear if Chibnall's era will reference a lot of the previous one like Moffat's did.

    King James 1 pops up in The Plotters and The Empire of Glass. He is also in The Gunpowder Plot game. His appearance there, as well as in The Plotters, are genuinely considered irreconcilable. So I wonder how much of a ripple this will cause with those related media. Continuity fans are going to have a field day lol.

    Regarding the DVDs being released by serial, I think in a few ways BBC sort of packaged them from the start as "mini movies" especially considering some serials tended to run from 2-3 hours anyway. Some of the early ones even edited all the episodes together (Which sometimes edited out some dialogue)...I think PBS occasionally did this too. I think they also tended to release the "bad" serials last.

    If you look at the last VHSes released, there's quite a few "meh" stories here, with a few exceptions (The DVDs seemed to be more of a mix, releasing serials deemed pretty good alongside ones that weren't).

    Quite a few VHS releases were edited into omnibus format in the late 80's. Revenge of The Cybermen was released three times (1983, 1984 and 1999.) The first two times were edited. A release featuring the episodic format finally came in 1999.

    You are right in that the BBC tried to market them as feature length, though. Well, at first anyway. But that probably had more to do with the length of the VHS tape. Cutting out the titles and reprises at the beginning of each episode meant they could have easily lost over 20 minutes. Thats 20 minute less tape needed.

    Classic Who is meant to be watched in an episodic format. But the ability to binge watch means we can easily watch a serial in one sitting. I am glad that, when the ABC here in Australia replayed every episode for the shows 40th, they played one episode a night at 6pm. This was before the DVD range got going, but after many VHS had gone out of print. So I got to watch it as it was meant to be. Each day I looked forward to it. Kind of my treat after a hard day at high school lol.

    Yeah-the reason "Revenge" was chosen as the first was because the fans wanted Earthshock I think, but it was too soon from it's airdate, so they got "Revenge" instead because Cybermen (and I'm pretty sure at that time it was the only other intact Cybermen story, as "Tomb" was still missing). I remember the 90's released tapes in particular having some great painted artwork (I think by one of the artists who also did some novel work).
