BBC’s “Gift” to DOCTOR WHO Fans Everywhere!


Looks at this son of a bitch:

Yeppers, boys and girls, what we’re seeing here is the humongous Doctor WHo: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset due for release November 5, 2013 and currently available for pre-order at our favorite moneygrubber  online store, good ole Amazon.Com.

This sucker’s got everything those who appreciate what could arguably be the best-written s-f series ever to appear on television could ever hope for, in Blue-ray 1080p:
  • Doctor Who: The Complete First Series, starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper
  • Doctor Who: The Complete Second Series, starring David Tennant and Billie Piper
  • Doctor Who: The Complete Third Series, starring David Tennant and Freema Agyeman
  • Doctor Who: The Complete Fourth Series, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate
  • Doctor Who: The Complete Specials, starring David Tennant
  • Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series, starring Matt Smith and Karen Gillan
  • Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series, starring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill
  • Doctor Who: The Complete Seventh Series, starring Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, and Jenna-Louise Coleman

And glom onto the Special Features:

  • The Brit List’s Doctor Who Ultimate List of Lists
  • The Best of the Christmas Specials
  • Doctor Who at the Proms (90-minute version with 5.1 Surround Sound)
  • Audio Commentary
  • Doctor Who Confidential/Behind the Scenes
  • Deleted Scenes and Outtakes
  • Feature-length Specials and Featurettes
  • Episode prequels
  • Video Diaries

But we ain’t done yet, kids. Oh no. There’s also these genuine physical/touch me/feel me/play with me bits:

  • The Doctor Who Universal Remote Control Sonic Screwdriver
  • 3 exclusive original art cards
  • An exclusive Doctor Who comic book

This is good stuff. But it comes at a price. The list price is $349.98. Amazon’s doing pre-orders at 10%, bringing the cost down to $314.99. In our minds, it’s well worth it if you’re going to really watch the videos, read the comic book, and use the Sonic Screwdriver remote. But if you’re the type whose intention is to simply stuff this in a big plastic sack, call it a collectible, and wait for the price to go up, hey, as our dear, sainted Cardiff Granma used to say, “Take the needle outta yer arm, dearie.” (Yeah, she really did. Grew up in different times, that old lady did.)

We’ve already done the pre-order thing. You too can pre-order on Amazon.


Look, Chris Eccleston's Doctor is here too! And we thought we'd never see him again!
