Hmm. Makes me wonder if they plan to do another release with those included.

Re: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The Day of the Doctor

In all fairness, Fathom Events advertised quite clearly that the theatrical showings would include "exclusive" content that wouldn't be seen elsewhere. Still...
The Strax theatre etiquette threat intro and the Smith/Tennant 3D intro are VERY missed on this BD release.
And I'll personally add that I wish they'd also added "The Five(ish) Doctors" and Smith's video promoting the Twitter #SaveTheDay hashtag.
How much do we bet that it all shows up on the S8 box set?!

The Blu-Ray? Online, their DVD price is $17.99 and the Blu-Ray is $21.99.

Re: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The Day of the Doctor

Yep, mine was $21.99, my bad. I did see that $17.99, but that must have been the DVD right next to it.

Just finished watching the 3D presentation. Looked rather good, but something odd I noticed - the center channel on the audio is really low, almost like it's blended with the left and right. It's very hard to hear the dialogue at times. I had to turn up the center channel quite a bit. I know it's the mix since I watched The Wolverine right before and that sounded fine.

I have a feeling that they'll have a 50th Anniversary boxed set that will include "The Day of the Doctor," "An Adventure in Space and Time," the 2013 Christmas Special, and some other exclusive content that would possibly be the Five(ish) Doctors, and some of the other specials. This would also be a good place for them to include the theatrical exclusives since by the time the boxed set comes out, the theatrical run will have ended.

It would be like the set of the four Tennant specials that came out between Series 4 and Series 5.

This is what I am hoping for. I'd love them to add in everything done for the 50th, including the Doctors Revisited specials, though I'm not holding my breath on those. It would be nice if the Christmas special is included, but I'm kind of thinking that has a better chance of showing up on the 8th series set since it's not really a part of the 50th. We'll see...hopefully we get it all in one awesome package...preferably shaped like the Tardis!

That low center channel and low dialogue was a problem at the theatrical showing too. I guess it wasn't just the theater then.

Re: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The Day of the Doctor

IIRC, the First Series DVD set (w/Eccleston) had a similarly messed-up center channel. Might have been fixed at some point as I don't see anyone complaining about it any longer.

^ I remember that. I had to crank my center channel up to 10 just to hear anything.

That'd be really nice, but I'd be a bit miffed having already been suckered for the standalone "The Day Of The Doctor". Wouldn't surprise me though - BBC/Warner are notorious for standalone releases...half-season sets, etc. - then packaging it all in full box sets.

The only reason I passed on the Doctors Revisited specials was because there were no BluRay's of them - and yes, they would make a nice addition. I actually had the Eccleston/Tennant/Smith one in my hand tonight in a Best Buy, but I saw that DVD logo and just couldn't...

The Doctor's Revisited aren't in HD. At least, not the episodes.

Just received my copy from Amazon. It also contains the trading cards, in case anyone thought those were exclusive to Best Buy.
