     Series 2 Box set differences between Canada and US releases

    Doctor Who NewsFans of Doctor Who in Canada will have to wait a little longer to get thier hands on a copy of the Series 2 box set. In a very strange move, the release date for the set in Canada has now been moved to February 6th while the US release still stays at January 16th. Not sure why the BBC wants to wait 3 weeks longer to release it in Canada.

    The pricing for the set is also interesting, currently at Amazon US it is listed on slae at $69.99 while at Amazon Canada it is seeling for $87.49 and at the Chapters books website for $93.74. Quite the price difference if you ask me, even with the exchange rate.

    Series 2 Box set differences between Canada and US releases
    Authored by: MikeD on Sunday, December 31 2006 @ 10:11 AM EST
    This isn't a strange move at all. Series Two has been completed in the US but not in Canada. They are waiting until most of the series has bene broadcast in Caanda on the CBC before putting out the DVD boxset. The exact same thing happened in reverse last year except the wait for the US after Canada got the DVDs was five months and not three weeks.

    Now that you mention that Mike it does make sense. I realized the same thing after I posted it. Sadly, we are slaves to the schedules of the television networks. Strange how things reversed this year's release.

    About the pricing...pricing is not directly based on the exchange rate at the time but on what the market will bear. We may not be getting a good deal on this particular DVD set with regards to the current exchange rate with the US but for many years when the Canadian dollar was much lower we got an excellent deal on Doctor Who books and videos. Even today we're getting an amazing deal on the price of the new Doctor Who toys in Canada. We lose some but we win more.
