Regeneration DVD box set details

BBC Worldwide has announced details of a new DVD box set featuring a limited edition coffee table book-styled collectors’ album including six DVDs and over 1000 minutes of Doctor Who footage. Doctor Who: Regeneration will be released in the UK on June 24 with an RRP of £61.27, click on the images included for bigger versions and check out the details below:

The collection features each Doctor’s iconic regeneration episode; from the first Doctor played by William Hartnell, exhausted after battling the Cybermen to Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor suffering from radiation that had been unleashed by the Great One (a giant spider); and from the spectacular transformation of the Ninth Doctor to David Tennant’s emotional farewell as the Tenth.

The set is adorned with superb photography from across the era and features detailed and informative accounts of each regeneration. And if that wasn’t enough, new to DVD is The Tenth Planet featuring the Doctor’s first regeneration – beautifully restored with the missing fourth episode now brought to life with stunning animation. Utilising the original soundtrack, off-screen photographs and a short surviving sequence of the Doctor’s regeneration the episode has been now reconstructed in animated form, incorporating the restored version of the surviving sequence.

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!)

Carl - I think you've misunderstood.

The full stories are included.

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!

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!!
