Doctor Who S1-7 bluray boxset [UPDATE]

Amazon.com are currently listing the Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset - a boxset including the first seven series since the 2005 restart all on bluray and a Universal Remote Control Sonic Screwdriver! Available for pre-order in North America. Check out the details below for the North American release:

For the first time ever, BBC Home Entertainment is collecting the complete new Doctor Who together on Blu-ray plus an amazing assortment of additional items including the totally unique Doctor Who Universal Remote Control Sonic Screwdriver and more!

The collection includes Series 1-4, featuring Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston and Tenth Doctor David Tennant, making their Blu-ray debut in newly remastered versions at full 1080p resolution, plus Series 5-7 featuring Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, also on 1080p high definition Blu-ray. Catch up with the complete new Doctor Who in high definition just in time for the historic 50th Anniversary Special this fall.

ETA: There will be a version of this set released in the UK. It won't be quite the same, and it will have different artwork, but there will be a Doctor Who S1-7 bluray boxset released in the UK. More details as and when they come.

Does it include the final David Tennant specials as well? Would seem mad not to but there is no mention of them...

I'm hoping they'll be releasing the single seasons as well as I already have the specials on blu (even though no mention is made in the press release) and also already own 5 on blu (6 coming soon when I'm in the UK next month). The sonic remote is nice, but not something I really "need" to own.

Looking at the image on Amazon "zoomed-in" shows "The Complete Specials" between "The Complete Fourth Series" and "The Complete Fifth Series"

The Specials' production codes were 4.14-18, so I imagine they'll be included as part of the s4 box.

1080p?
So series 5 - 7 have been upscaled as well as they were 1080i?
ARGH! I don't want to buy all my boxsets again!

1080i -> 1080p isn't an upscale. It's just a deinterlace.

These won't be any different from your current Blu-Rays.

Erm, upscaled from SD? And the point of that is...
