The first 4 discs are 1080p, and the last disc (extras) is 1080i. Since part of it is 1080i they have to label the whole thing 1080i. $31.XX shipped, hhhmmm.

HD-DVD is region free correct? There shouldn't be any issues playing this on a US player?

Some deals on some other BBC series as well, such as Robin Hood and Hotel Babylon...

I noticed that Torchwood S1 is listed as a pre-order for june 30 on HD-DVD at amazon.co.uk. Is that still happening? That would be sweet! I know it is coming out on BD here but I'd rather have HD-DVD since I dont own BD...
