    I’m noticing quite the drop in DVD announcements recently though. Last year, for the first 3 quarters, we had two new adventures a month yet the last quarter, we only had a couple total and not many this year to come this year. (so far) Hopefully, they’ll crank it up. I want/need the Daemons here in the states, Terror of the Zygons, ambassadors of Death, etc!
