I cant see them being included with series 8. Personally I view Day and Time as two completely separate specials that have no place in any particular series much like the Tennant specials.

Some feel Day and Time might be included with Series 8, but I doubt it personally. There have been some rumblings about a special edition release of Day of the Doctor. No word on if it'll include Time as well.

The only thing not there is anything made after Series 7 - that would be 'Day of the Doctor' and 'Time of the Doctor'.

If you have this set you have everything up until the end of Series 7 (plus all the extras and goodies). Watch 1-4, then the specials, then 5-7. I didn't own any of these before getting this set, but now I truly feel like I have it all.



I haven't bought 'Day' or 'Time' yet. I am going to wait until Series 8 is released on Blu Ray just to make sure they aren't included in that set (or released together in a 50th anniversary box or something). BBC has yet to release a special that didn't become part of a box set later on, so I am counting on history repeating itself.

Thank you all for your responses. I guess I'll see if I am going to go for the individual releases of the two additional specials... or wait for a possible (but not guaranteed) collection with both. I do want the 3D disc for Day of the Doctor and I doubt that would get released again though.

Day of the Doctor and Time of the Doctor will absolutely be included in the Series 8 set. If the lack of Capaldi was an issue, Seasons 7A and 7B would never have been packaged together due to the change of companion.

I wouldn't be so sure... especially with the 3D release of day of the Doctor.

A change of companion is no where near the major event that a change of Doctor is. Show me one source that states that Day and Time are considered part of Series 8.

The BBC sells Doctor Who to broadcasters internationally in single series packages. Day of the Doctor and Time of the Doctor were both sold in a package with Series 8 as one full series of the show.

The 2014 Christmas Special, despite filming at the end of Series 8's production schedule and airing only four weeks after 8x13, will be sold in the Series 9 package and thus be considered that series.

The way something is sold for broadcast and home media is not necessarily the same... those are different methods of sales. With broadcast, it definitely makes sense because they air them around the same time as part of their scheduled line up. But it doesn't necessarily mean they will both be on the Season 8 set.

The various box sets have always matched the broadcast packages (i.e., Specials were sold on their own, Specials got a box set). Why bundle them up in the first place otherwise?

There's no reason not to include them. "They have different Doctors!" makes no difference whatsoever.

Bottom line really is... There's no rush to run out and buy Day or Time of the Doctor. The price will not go up over time. Worst case scenario is IF they are not part of Series 8, you can bet they will be on sale around or after that series releases and you can pick them up.

I was burned once... during the "year of the specials"... when I thought, since they were "specials" that I should buy them as they came out... so I bought the first two... then the price on the whole set was the same price or less than the cost of the remaining specials were individually... so I ended up buying the set and trading away the separate ones I had already bought.

I learned my lesson. Wait on the specials until I know whether they are part of a complete set or not. I lose nothing by waiting... and in recent years I just save episodes/specials on my DVR until I buy them on Blu-ray... so I can always re-watch anytime I want.
Prying off your face takes practice.

I bought Day of the Doctor because it was in 3D and I really wanted the home 3D experience for that one, but I only purchased the Amazon Instant Video version of Time of the Doctor because I didn't really want to spend $15 on it since there was very little added value in purchasing the Blu-Ray. (But the complete-ist in me wants it in Blu-Ray for uniformity purposes. I just can't win I guess.)

Ok, so I'm currently on the 3rd disc of Series 5.

To date, I still think Eccleston was the best acted doctor. I really wish he had done at least two seasons.

Of the three 'new doctors' I think I like Tennant the best overall. I really didn't like Smith until I got into the 2nd disc - but I just can't get past his weird face.

I do really like Amy Pond - not as much as Rose, but close. Probably has a lot to do with her red hair

Yes, that's the prevailing rumor. But it might be a year or two until we see it.

BBC hasn't officially commented on anything though.
