Complete Eighth Series DVD Delayed
The DVD and Blu-Ray boxset release of The Complete Eighth Series has been delayed in the UK by one week.
The 5-disc boxset, containing all 12 episodes from Peter Capaldi’s debut series and a host of extras, was originally due on 17 November but will now release instead on 24 November.
The reason for this slight delay is due to a BBFC classification change. The finale was given a ’12’ rating instead of ‘PG’ which required a reprint of the cover.
The BBC Shop alerted customers stating: “We wanted to let you know that the UK release of Doctor Who Series 8 has been delayed by one week. This is due to a recent classification change for the series finale which necessitated a reprint of the DVD & Blu-Ray cover. The new release date for this title is 24th November 2014.”
