These Doctor Who Blu Ray boxsets are things of beauty.
Rumour is that season 20 is next. My most wished for set is season 7. Spearhead From Space has already had the Blu treatment, though I guess the remainder of the season would need more work to upgrade it.
And I’d love a Troughton set too.

Although i have the season 26 in ltd packaging i'm not bothered about any others in the same style, happy with a normal bd case, but we'll see as of when with what's released.

Season 25 and 21 for me. Season 2 would be pretty cool if they could do something with the missing episodes of The Crusade. I really can't imagine The Web Planet in HD.

Had it been still available i'd have probably ordered it after reading Mojo's thoughts on it.

Anyway long story short i've ordered the standard editions of seasons 12 and 19.

I won't be buying the animated stories on blu-ray. There's surely only so much you can do with line drawings.
Both Seasons 12 & 19 are currently priced at 37.99 on Amazon. I'm wondering if it's worth waiting to see if they'll decrease in price later on, but I'm not sure how limited these reissued sets are. Don't want to miss out on those too!

I don't think they are limited but i was so impressed with the way Ghost Light was restored i just want them asap. The fact that season 19 has 26 episodes and seven stories for the 38 makes that one worthwhile for me - Just over a fiver a story. Plus it's a fave season of mine.

Also i want to support them getting re-released. If no one buys them then they may not bother releasing the others thinking all the fans have got hold of the initial box sets.

As for them dropping in price. Seasons 10, 11 and 12 of the current series are still up around 30 on bd so it may not happen for a long time, if ever.
