The Blu-ray box set Doctor Who: The Collection – Season 12 includes all five stories from Tom Baker’s first series as the Fourth Doctor and is out now. You’ve been telling us what you think of it…

Serial Thrillers


The Season 12 box set is a treasure trove of goodies. With the new extras as well as all the previously released stuff, it’s essentially a complete history of Tom’s first season. My favourite new addition is Behind the Sofa – essentially Gogglebox meets Doctor Who. I also love the new 5.1 sound mixes, which add new dimensions to The Ark in Space and Genesis of the Daleks. Can’t wait to explore more of good old 1975 Who!


Growing up, I adored Tom Baker’s era of Doctor Who. Watching my Doctor spark into life on the floor of his UNIT lab filled me with such excitement! Watching Robot two decades later, I’m experiencing the same feeling thanks to the work of so many incredibly talented people who have restored this season to the best quality possible, combined with stunning graphics, invaluable extra features (Behind the Sofa is worth a release all of its own) and gorgeous packaging. This Blu-ray box set of Season 12, like Tom Baker, is truly “indomitable”!
