Merchandise Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time

Is This REALLY The Cover Art For An Adventure In Space And Time?!

We’ve just been sent the cover image – straight from Amazon – for the US Blu-ray edition of An Adventure in Space and Time. As you can see above, Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary docudrama has been given a… striking look, one that dispenses with the familiar view of David Bradley as William Hartnell from the UK DVD version.

There is a strong chance that the more familiar image (above, right) is hiding beneath a sleeve with the new design on it but either way it is quite a surprising new look for the critically acclaimed drama by Mark Gatiss.

The Blu-ray version of the show – currently discounted to $19.99 – is out in the USA on May 27th.

What do you think of the cover art listed on Amazon?

    looks well good!

  2. I like both – hopefully it is a slip cover as you suggest It would look even better if it were the blue of the TARDIS on a black and white effect. Shame there’s no confirmation on a Blu-Ray release in the UK… other than perhaps in a 50th Box set forcing me to double dip!

      BBC Worldwide told me no plans for a UK Blu ray release.

  3. avatar Ian says:

    Nice but why use the 11th Doctors Tardis? Do they think US fans would not recognise the 1st Doctors Tardis?

    • avatar Al says:

      Basically, yes. Average viewers won’t tell the difference and the original Hartnell TARDIS had the St John’s badge too anyway.

  4. What’s happening here is BBC Home Entertainment recently conduct a survey to help choose the cover art for the general release out of four proposed designs. has details on the finalised cover art which differs a bit from the design originally proposed which had four “floating heads” around the TARDIS.

    You can see the other proposed designs here:
