And yes, with this price (£70) I can replace cardboard sleeves with something else (slim case, for example, and I can made custom cover, based on original artwork, for example).
It's not problem for me - most important is that they will give us the same music content...

Well my Father and I wanted the Tardis set, but the price is too much, especially with postage to the US (even after it was reduced). Then the non-Tardis set is announced with "standard clamshell" but with cardboard sleeves (wallet). Guess we will just have to finish acquiring the music that has already been previously released in the regular jewel cases and pass on this release. I am not going to purchase this and then take the time to make up my own inserts for jewel cases and then figure out how to store them. I guess you just can not have everything.

Difficulty understanding why they couldnt have taken Lalaland route that Lalaland did with Star Trek releases. There are clamshells that can hold 12-15 cd's and dont require sleeves. Maybe someone form lalalland needs to call Silva?(Smile)

My guess is they are trying to save on weight (looking at the cost to ship) along with expense, but with what they are releasing the end product is going to suffer. Every single CD that I have bought that comes in a wallet sleeve is scratched. I take care of my CDs and I would like them to start out in good condition.

Then you are doing something wrong somewhere...I have quite a few in wallet sleeves and every one of them are in perfect condition..

The Moochin' About "Jazz on Film" CD sets all have the wallet sleeves in similar fold-open boxes, and they work great. Each disc/sleeve features it's own individual graphics & track titles, and are quite well done. The discs also slip in & out of the sleeves very easily.

News from Silva Screen:

TARDIS PRE-SALE ENDS TOMORROW AT 10AM

THE ELEVEN DISC EDITION HAS BEEN EXTENDED FOR A FURTHER WEEK AND WILL NOW END AT 10AM UK TIME ON FRIDAY 16TH OF MAY

Due to the late introduction of this product, we have extended the pre-order window for a further week. The pre-order window for the TARDIS EDITION remains the same and ends tomorrow, Friday the 9th of May at 10am UK time.


And I need to say this is very reasonable decision.

Yep, after all the internal debate I thought..what the hell!..Might as well go for the best packaged option.

Anyone ordered the Tardis set?

I ordered on the first day. I long ago decided that I would splurge. When the non-tardis edition was announced I didn't give it much thought. For a Who fan, the packaging is half the fun. It going to look great on the shelf and I'm sure it will become a highly sought after collector's item.
The average Whovian that does not pay much attention to soundtrack news is probably not aware of this release and many will regret they missed out. I'm often surprised at the fans I meet who have the Dr Who CDs but aren't generally film music fans...they just buy everything Dr Who related. I believe the Tardis set will have great appeal to folks like that.

I don't know if sales are limited to "x per person" but it wouldn't surprise me to see the set appear in dealer's booths at Dr Who conventions at prices of $500 and up in future. Some dealers will pick up a few extra to cash in on the people who missed out. It's a very common occurrence in the world of SF fandom to find even really pricey collector's items being hoarded by dealers.

News from Silva:

We are hoping to be able to announce a delivery date for your order of DOCTOR WHO:THE ELEVEN DISC EDITION soon. As you know, it will be the same date as the TARDIS, which is currently being made by hand in China.

Due to the manufacturing time of the TARDIS, we are not going to make our original estimated delivery date at the end of July. All the parts of the TARDIS are made and painted and are currently being assembled.

This is what needs to happen before your order is on its way to you:

TARDIS boxes to leave the factory for shipping (estimated to be w/e 28th September)

Ship to dock in England – The ship is likely to take 6-8 weeks.

TARDIS to finish being assembled with CDs/print and THE ELEVEN DISC EDITION to be manufactured.

DOCTOR WHO: THE ELEVEN DISC EDITION to be delivered to you – This is when your credit card will be debited and likely to be at the end of November

We will be sending you notifications at each stage of this process to make sure you are kept up to date.


Seems like Burton/Elfman box situation repeats again... wink

You know, the more I read about this set, the more I realise how lucky I am not to have ordered it. And I love EVERYTHING about Doctor Who, including it's music.

You know, I went back and forth on this and finally decided not to get this set. I'm happy enough to get the four disc release.

I also went back an forth and decided not to get either set. The big problem was the cost of postage, so I gave up on the Tardis set. Then the clam shell set was announced in cardboard sleeves, which was the main reason I did not purchase that set. We have the 4 disc set and it is going to work until we can find the older releases at reasonable prices. Since the Tardis set was announced, they are showing up regularly on ebay.

Precisely my own situation. I really didn't want the Police Box edition. I couldn't help feeling like I might miss out, but ultimately couldn't justify the purchase, so went ahead and got the four disc edition. THEN they announced the cheaper 11 disc option, which I would have gone for. Too late. This part of Silva's tactics cost them money. I can't be the only one who did this. So I'm afraid they pretty much bungled it.

Something of a blot on an otherwise excellent release schedule over the last few years. If they do a decent Colin Baker era release, either or both Season 22/Trial, I will get them. Likewise a decent Dudley Simpson release, be it what exists of original work or re-recordings. If they can duplicate Simpson's sound as well as they did on that Culture Show documentary it would be very welcome.

As for the future and Murray Gold, I wonder what chances there are of any Day of the Doctor being included on next season's soundtrack cd? And I know it was unloved by some, but I wonder if Song for Fifty will ever be included on a disc? Personally I loved it.

Another update. Now it's sounds more optimistic (for me, as I ordered this "light" version)!

Due to the delay in delivery of the TARDIS set, we will no longer be delivering these products at the same time.

The Eleven Disc Edition will now be shipped on 15th September.
