Hell n’ont pas dÃ©daignÃ© 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.
Fansite Beans on Toast sent a petitionÂ addressed to Publishing Director Denis Rostein at France TÃ©lÃ©vision Distribution demanding that they show respect to the growing Who community in France by releasing the seriesÂ 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 asÂ the British edition, but to simply watch and discover this series as a whole.
ThereÂ have beenÂ no plans to release Season Four for the past year.
The website has promised to take further action if they get enough signatories.
In FranceÂ Doctor Who is broadcast on France 4 which lists the Doctors age as 750 and calls the show ‘Fantastique’ whileÂ Torchwood is shown onÂ the NRJ-12 network.
In July an exclusive screening of La OnziÃ¨me 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.
