Now, this box set includes all the episodes from Series 10, plus the "Return of Doctor Mysterio" Christmas special from 2016. This set does NOT include the 2017 Christmas special called "Twice Upon A Time". That will have a separate release sometime in February, and it's also a possibility that it will be included in the future complete eleventh series box set. Unlike some previous Doctor Who releases, this comes in a slim style blu ray box set. It's not as elaborate as the digibook editions of the past season releases, and takes up a little less space on your shelf. If you buy it early enough, you will get a slipcover with it (same artwork as on the set's cover, no alternate art).
My favorite extra on the whole set (other than the binaural audio for the 'haunted house' style episode "Knock Knock") has to be all the behind the scenes stuff relating to the final two episodes. It's a good two part story with a couple returning villains (the Cybermen have not been this creepy/scary for a long time), some surprises, and overall I think it's a good way to end the tenth series. The 12th Doctor's last series feels like a good jumping on point for new Doctor Who fans (the first episode is called "Pilot" and sets up everything pretty well), and I'd definitely recommend it. :)
-The cover says that it "Includes Four Free Doctor Who Digital Comics! Download Code Inside!" There was no download code to be found.
-The closed captioning was not very accurate. It seemed like the CC was written by someone who just watched the show, but not very closely. The CC showed what it sounded like The Doctor was saying, but not what he actually said. If you don't listen carefully, what it SOUNDS like he said usually doesn't make much sense, but if you pay attention to what he ACTUALLY says, it does makes sense. For those who are not used to Scottish accents and British slang, closed captioning is extremely useful. But it is useful only if it is accurate. For some reason, the show has joined the annoying trend of mumble-mumble dialog being used in tv shows and movies today; making closed captioning all that more necessary.
What none of them know (expect for the Doctor of course) is that The Ghost is really Grant now Lucy's nanny and taking care of her infant daughter. The Doctor, Nardole, Grant and Lucy are embroiled in a plot by Harmony Shoals that intends to trigger a bomb and replace the minds of world leaders with their own and conquer the Earth.
The Doctor on Earth has taken to teaching a college and refuses to travel in the TARDIS. While teaching he meets a young woman named Bill who works in the college cafeteria and wonders if all her life is meant working and serving chips to students as life passes her by. The Doctor impressed with Bill begins to teach her and in time he leaves Earth in the 21st century to show Bill the universe. There they encounter spacesuits willing to kill its occupants for the sake of business. British troops on Mars in the 19th century. An invasion that never happened! A ship that harbors the genesis of a race the Doctor has fought before and an old enemy thought gone. The reason why a Roman Legion disappeared in ancient Britain. A puddle that wants Bill and so much more.
The reason I am not happy with the packaging is that they charged more for this season and then went cheap with the packaging, and on top of that there was a sticker stating that a code for 4 free Doctor Who digital comics was included but was no where inside the package.
