Doctor Who “Regeneration” Boxset Announced!

Announced today by the BBC, the Doctor Who Regeneration set is a DVD collection featuring each of our favourite Time Lord’s regenerations.

Could this be the ultimate 50th anniversary gift?

New Doctor Who Regeneration DVD boxset

The beautifully packaged limited edition coffee table book-styled collectors’ album includes six DVDs and over 1000 minutes of Doctor Who footage.

The collection features each Doctor’s iconic regeneration episode; from the first Doctor played by William Hartnell, exhausted after battling the Cybermen to Jon Pertwee’s Third Doctor suffering from radiation that had been unleashed by the Great One (a giant spider); and from the spectacular transformation of the Ninth Doctor to David Tennant’s emotional farewell as the Tenth.

The set is adorned with superb photography from across the era and features detailed and informative accounts of each regeneration. And if that wasn’t enough, new to DVD is The Tenth Planet featuring the Doctor’s first regeneration – beautifully restored with the missing fourth episode now brought to life with stunning animation. Utilising the original soundtrack, off-screen photographs and a short surviving sequence of the Doctor’s regeneration the episode has been now reconstructed in animated form, incorporating the restored version of the surviving sequence.

    If only they would sell the book on its own. I would love to have that. Well, maybe throw in The Tenth Planet, but I imagine its getting a solo release at a later date anyway.

  2. avatar Paul Blume says:

    Could this release, itself, be a spoiler?

  3. avatar Sean Urry says:

    I love the booklet idea and I want the Tenth Planet with animated episodes BUT I DO NOT THINK IT FAIR to release this after so many loyal fans have already bought 10 out of 11 of these stories already and yet again with the special editions !

  4. avatar PAB says:

    1,000 hours on the DVDs?Can’t be!

    • Hmm, you know that is a lot, isn’t it?

      Just checked, should be minutes. Not sure how that happened…!

  5. Won’t be getting this. Have got everything anyway bar Tenth Planet and that will be out with bonus features (what I buy the DVD’s for) later in the year anyway. More cynical behaviour from BBC Worldwide though in issuing this set. It’s like the Davros set a few years back where the put special bonus features in the box set that aren’t anywhere else. Con.

    Many films often get re-released with Director’s Cuts, extended editions, special anniversary editions etc, so I think a release of this type is only to be expected. Buy it if you want to, if you don’t lile it then don’t. Just remember the days when all the merchandise you could get was the Target novelisations and Doctor Who Magazine.

    • In fairness, Star Wars aside, Doctor Who had a hell of a lot of merchandise over the classic era years compared with other shows.

      I mean, I agree with you, but it’s worth pointing out the difference.

  7. avatar Coopergreg says:

    Agree in comparison with other shows, but just a tiny fraction of what’s around now. People have so much choice now ( which is great), so I think a lot of people also welcome re-releases, special editions etc. Another analogy is car manufacturers face lifting cars during a model lifetime to tempt both new and existing buyers back.
