Doctor Who: The Collection – Season 2 available on Blu-ray

This nine-disc box set sees William Hartnell’s First Doctor join the Collection range for the first time!

BBC Studios announces Doctor Who: The Collection – Season 2 which will be released later this year on Blu-ray. The addition to the range offers Doctor Who fans the opportunity to continue building their own home archive. Debuting later this year this collection is the biggest release yet and features a limited edition nine-disc box. It sees William Hartnell’s First Doctor join the Collection range for the first time.

Across a jam-packed season of 37 episodes, the Doctor is joined by faithful companions Susan (Carole Ann Ford), Ian (William Russell), Barbara (Jacqueline Hill), Vicki (Maureen O’Brien) and Steven (Peter Purves). Together they face off against the dreaded Daleks, the marauding Mechonoids, the ant-like Zarbi and the meddling Monk, while visiting fantastic alien worlds and turbulent times in the Earth’s history.
