Classic Doctor Who Repackaged

Over the last few years, the BBC have slowly been releasing the classic run of celebrated series Doctor Who in gorgeously lavish Limited-Edition sets. These premium releases have almost always sold out almost instantly, with many fans missing out, and arguing that a more affordable standard edition should be available for non-collectors. 

Thankfully, BBC have listened to these calls and started re-releasing The Collection in more basic packaging with reduced booklets – but still retaining all the golden content on the discs, including the beautifully restored episodes and oodles of special features. For people who are not as interested in lavish packaging, these releases offer a wonderful and cheaper alternative for those who want to revisit the golden years of the Doctor’s adventures.

We took a closer look at one of the four sets to be re-released in this standard packaging…


  • Optional updated effects and 5.1 surround sound for selected episodes
  • New retrospective documentaries and interviews
  • Archival making-of documentaries
  • Rare footage
  • Audio commentaries
  • Info text
  • And much, much more…

DOCTOR WHO: THE COLLECTION – Season 10, 12, 18 and 19 are now available on Blu-ray in standard edition packaging from BBC Studios Home Entertainment
