Leaky Banter News Posted by Ian Symes on 28th September 2016, 21:30 There’s a bit of context required for this one. As recently documented in our forum, online listings have started to appear for the Series XI DVD/Bluray. While all details are still TBC, it seems that there’s going to be a special edition steelbook in addition to the standard releases, and that they’ll all be released on 14th November. Temporary placeholder artwork can also be glimpsed, such as this for the DVD and this for the Bluray steelbook. Then, earlier today, Danny John-Jules noticed that some US retailers are using some really dodgy fan mockup as a placeholder. He was not happy about this, given that the Cat is nowhere to be seen. Baby Cow’s Dan Kay moved to reassure Danny that this cover was not genuine, and then the bantz began, with Dan tweeting an amusing alternate mockup. Then just now, Doug took it a step further with this tweet… The actual cover of the actual DVD, there. Well, I assume that Danny won’t be scribbled over in the final version, but you never know. As per the Series X DVD, this cover features the main promo image for the series, and thankfully it’s the revised version of that picture. The sans-serif text on the spine looks bloody lovely, and the back cover contains the traditional episode list, production stills, series synopsis and details of special features… The top three items on that list are no surprise, but it’s great to have confirmation. The other extras listed are all things that were present throughout the main DVD range, but missing from Series X, so this package makes an instant improvement in that regard. However, while it’s worth remembering that all of this is subject to change until we see an official version on TOS, not all the standard extras are back – no music cues, for one, and most notably there’s still no commentary. That’s a huge shame, but let’s hope we hear more details before too long.
