Français Demande Fans de Doctor Who Sortie en DVD!

Hell n’ont pas dédaigné fureur comme Doctor Who fans!

French Doctor Who fans have launched an online petition for the release of Season Four of the show on DVD, which stars David Tennant as the Doctor and Catherine Tate as Donna Noble.

Doctor Who Series 4 starred David Tennant and Catherine TateFansite Beans on Toast sent a petition addressed to Publishing Director Denis Rostein at France Télévision Distribution demanding that they show respect to the growing Who community in France by releasing the series  uncensored.

The petition chides the company’s previous releases of Season Three, where the original English version was missing and Season One where only three quarters of the series was included in the release.

Pleading with Rostein the petition says (via the ‘magic’ of Google Translate):

We do not ask for a DVD as comprehensive as the British edition, but to simply watch and discover this series as a whole.

There have been no plans to release Season Four for the past year.

The website has promised to take further action if they get enough signatories.

In France Doctor Who is broadcast on France 4 which lists the Doctors age as 750 and calls the show ‘Fantastique’ while Torchwood is shown on the NRJ-12 network.

In July an exclusive screening of La Onzième Heure took place at Paris’ second annual Comic Con along with the first episode of Doctor Who Confidential.

The petition so far has only 157 signatories so click here, battle against Google Translate and sign it, so your fellow Whovians can finally watch the Tenth Doctor’s last full season again and again.

(With thanks to Aurélie)

About the Author


Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    Researching the French speaking Whoiverse was a joy. Its so amazing to see all the passion that this show generates across the globe. I hope you guys get the DVD/Blu-ray (What is the state of Doctor Who Blu-Rays?) releases you all deserve.

    Thanks a lot for your support, Andrew :)

    I’m glad you liked the French-speaking Whovian sites and forums^^

    There are currently neither Doctor Who nor Torchwood Blu-rays in French.

    I don’t mind about the lack of Blu-rays (I don’t have a player anyway) but I’d really like a series 4 DVD ;)
