BBC confirms Doctor Who Regeneration DVD set
A posh collector's book, featuring all nine of Doctor Who's regeneration stories, and more, will be released this June...
In this, the fiftieth anniversary year, there'll be no shortage of Doctor Who merchandise and memorabilia released to mark the occasion. Travel mugs, coins, teapots, prints, jigsaws... even (and this one is exciting for those occuping the overlap in the Venn diagram of people who love quizzing, tiny pieces of wedge-shaped plastic, and Doctor Who) a Who version of Trivial Pursuit.
This though, is one for the serious collectors. Regeneration is a limited edition book including six DVDs including The Caves of Androzani, The End of Time, and (trumpet fanfare) The Tenth Planet. All nine regeneration episodes are included, along with photography, and detailed accounts of each transition. The missing fourth episode of the First Doctor's regeneration story has been recreated in 2D animation, a clip from which you can see below courtesy of Doctor Who TV.
Here's a full list of the stories included in the DVD book: The Tenth Planet, The War Games, Planet of the Spiders, Logopolis, The Caves of Androzani, Time and the Rani, Doctor Who: The Movie, Bad Wolf and The Parting of the Ways, The End of Time. Watch the teaser trailer for the collection below.
The Regeneration collection will be released on the 24th of June only in the UK and is available to pre-order at the BBC shop, now.
