Doctor Who DVD Master Post Updated – 2014

The following is an updated list of all the Classic and New Who Episodes available on DVD. In general, Classic Stories are available as single title release DVDs, though some of the individual titles are available in box sets. Episodes made prior to 1970 were filmed in black and white. In general, the New Who (2005 – ) stories are available in season box sets and in DVD or Blu-Ray format. Some of the New Who stories were also released individually (such as the specials) and the Matt Smith stories are available in half-season sets as well. Please note “season” and “series” are used interchangably to describe a single year of the series (even an academic year).

Yes, I assembled this list and posted it myself. I did not make the “Quote-cloud” pics, I found those on Facebook, I think, but I do think they are awesome!

Colin Baker

A note about Colin Baker – during his tenure as the Doctor, the BBC changed the format a couple of times. His first story, The Twin Dilemma, is four half-hour parts – standard for Doctor Who. However, for the rest of the season, they changed the format to 45-minute “episodes” but stuck with the multi-part format. Therefore, Attack of the Cyberman (as well as the rest of the season)  is two 45-minute parts. However, the total length of the stories is roughly the same as the more traditional format, that is, two 45-minute parts equals four 30-minute parts; both are roughly 90 minutes.

Colin’s second season returned to the 30-minute parts format, but it was an umbrella story line called, “The Trial of a Time Lord”.

Doctor Who on DVD List

The following is a list of all the Classic and New Who Episodes available on DVD.  In general, Classic Stories are available as single title release DVDs, though some of the individual titles are available in box sets.  Episodes made prior to 1970 were filmed in black and white.  In general, the New Who (2005 – ) stories are available in season box sets and in DVD or Blu-Ray format.  Some of the New Who stories were also released individually (such as the specials) and the Matt Smith stories are available in half-season sets as well.  Please note “season” and “series” are used interchangably to describe a single year of the series (even an academic year). Quick note on my personal short hand – these lists originally came from Excel, and to save space a / symbol denotes “of the”, as in “Day / Daleks” means “Day of the Daleks”.
