Get Your Hands on David Tennant's Package

Of DVDs! DVDs, you sickos!

As everyone with ovaries knows, David Tennant's bespectacled, Converse-wearing, pinstriped Tenth Doctor is by far the One True Doctor (of the modern series, don't want to start any arguments here). Clearly the BBC agrees, recently announcing their plans to release a box set of 'The Tennant Years'. I hear even people without ovaries will be able to buy one.

The release date has been set for October 11, but I'm yet to find any word confirming if that is just in the US or worldwide. The set will include seasons 2, 3, and 4 or Doctor Who, plus all the 2009 specials AND the animated stories 'Dreamland' & 'The Infinite Quest'. With a retail price of $199, and assuming it will have a reasonable heft to it, the 26-disc collection will leave international fans having to decide between waiting for it to come out in their region, or shouldering the postage costs.

Will I buy it? Absolutely. Despite the fact I own all the DVDs already, and despite the fact it will likely spend most of its days as a display piece on the shelf, I just won't be able to resist. Allons-y!

  1. That is very awesome! As an individual without ovaries, I was surprised to read this and find out that this is scheduled for a US release. Don't know if it'll make it to my shelf, but it will be hemmed and hawed over heavily as if I did have ovaries.
