Default 'Dr Who' DVDs going cheap in Oz

There are lots of DVDs of the 'classic' series - 'Tomb of the Cybermen', 'Sontaran Experiment' and so on - on sale for $16.99 in my local 'Borders'. I assume they'll be the same price in other branches around Australia.

'Minotaur' in Melbourne is selling some for a similar price.

Thanks DK, by "classic" do you mean the Tom Baker stuff? we've got a Borders here, and we're looking for the two series' with Rose in them on DVD.
If she only wore a purple wig....

Not just Tom Baker but Hartnell, Troughton & the others up to & including McCoy.

I'm pretty sure 'Borders' have also discounted the 2005 & 2006 episodes in which Rose appears, but they're the 'vanilla' individual DVD releases with no extras. In my opinion, you shouldn't buy them - I think you'd be much better off buying the box sets for 2005 and onwards, because of the considerable extra material you get. For example, the 2005 set includes Billie Piper's 'video diary' which is likely to be of interest if you're a Billie fan.

Alas, I didn't notice any discounted box sets when I was in 'Borders'. Also, please understand that I have no idea if the US 'Borders' chain is running a similar sale!

Thanks Doc! Great idea on the boxed sets as well!
I'll check out the local Borders this week.
Wish me luck!

OK then - good luck! And need I add that buying the box sets would undoubtedly work out cheaper than buying all the single-disc releases?
