|Warner has announced release information for the remaining Doctor Who Series 6 home video sets.
While the first part of Series 6 was released on home video this summer, Part Two, including Let’s Kill Hitler through The Wedding of River Song, will see its home video release on November 8 on both Blu-Ray and DVD. The only extras on the disc are a pair of Monster Files featurettes. MSRP will be $24.98 (DVD) and $29.98 (BD).
However, on November 22, a scant two weeks later, and just in time for Doctor Who’s 48th birthday, people will be able to buy the complete, 6-disc, Series 6 set which includes A Christmas Carol as well as other currently unannounced extras (no doubt including the usual fare such as Confidential Cutdown). MSRP for the complete set will be $79.98 (DVD) and $89.98 (BD).
UPDATE: TV Shows On DVD is now reporting the following extras are confirmed to be on the Series 6 box set:
– Meanwhile in the TARDIS – Seven newly filmed scenes, exclusive to DVD and Blu-ray, telling what happens between the episodes
Several other extras, such as in-vision commentaries and the web-exclusive prequels, are rumoured to be on the set, as well, but their presence is unconfirmed at this time. Read the full post!

So I can pay 65 bucks for the whole season (including the Christmas special) or 80 bucks for the whole season? Decisions, decisions…
Hard to say. If nothing else the complete set will have extras the other split release doesn’t (Confidential Cutdown, perhaps commentaries) and in past – I’m not sure if Series 6 is different or not as I’ve not looked at the split release – the vanilla/split releases had 2-channel audio whereas the complete set had 5.1. Still, it’s more choice for the consumer to do what they feel is best.
