PostSubject: DVDs out of print?   Sat Jul 12, 2014 1:03 am

I've been slow with buying DW DVDs, but I've had all of them on a wish list at a "certain site" with their prices at the time of release. Unfortunately I didn't move on some titles and they've sold out, leaving secondary market prices that are out of control. "The Two Doctors" in particular goes for stupid money. Does anyone know if some of those titles will be made available again? The Time Monster, Ghost Light, The Curse of Fenric, The Time Meddler... the list has been growing. I keep hoping to see "Special Editions" coming out for these and other titles. Neutral

I did some digging, and it looks like last year BBC Worldwide decided to cut production on 19 DVD titles. Three of the four episodes from the final season of the classic show are among them (so only "Survival," er, survived the axe). Sad news Sad

The Two Doctors has been confirmed as re-released in the UK without "In a Fix With Sontarans" (due to it briefly featuring Jimmy Saville), so perhaps it will go back into print Stateside now that a politically-correct version of the DVD is now in the wild?

The way you can tell which Region 2 version is the original (and which one is the re-release) is by the front cover artwork. On the original, the Spanish villa appears at the bottom of the front cover artwork. On the re-release, the villa has been deleted, and the artwork moved down a bit to compensate.

I would expect the original release (both US and UK) to go up even more among collectors!

Okay, Doctor Who is being dropped from Netflix in February. Now some major titles (like City of Death) are inexplicably disappearing from the re-order list and are subsequently being snapped up; are the classic titles being discontinued? Has anyone seen any news?

I saw on a Doctor Who news site a story that the Beeb may be putting the show on a separate digital platform of their own making. That might be the reason this is all happening, and perhaps where we will see The Underwater Menace premiered (It would be a good first night for such a service.

It made me give up on buying the DVDs, really, since I'll never have a complete set it seems. I had quite a few anyway... but I tried to buy one or two from time to time to build the collection.

It's ridiculous that this is happening! There are people that enjoy classic Doctor Who as well as the new series! Some of the out of print DVDs are being sold for outrageous prices...there are people on Ebay/Amazon trying to sell "The Two Doctors" for $300. Is there anything that can be done? It would be nice if some of these titles could be re-released with the R2 covers as they are much nicer! I would be up for starting a petition if anyone would care to join me!

I love my wife! For a Valentine's gift, she ordered me Dragonfire and Happiness Patrol along with The Greatest Show in the Galaxy. It was from Canada and will not ship to US, so shipping to her cousin who lives out there who will then ship to us. The final 4 I need to complete the DVD collection are still available in the US, so I plan to purchase those as soon as out tax check comes in.

I thought I owned Dragonfire, and realized that I meant to get it last summer when working with Sophie. I completely spaced it. The same with Greatest Show in the Galaxy.

Wow.  This is disheartening.  It does make me wonder if they would release season sets, with the pricing actually being better than buying the individual titles.

The digital streaming service from BBC is probably the future of the series.  No more "owning" a copy of something. pale Evil or Very Mad

Sarah Jane Adventures (Seasons 1-4) are now confirmed out of print. We still have a few left of some of those.

Series 5 is still in supply at the supplier, but we do not know if this will go out of print once that supply has dried up. We have just ordered more of Series 5.
