Re: 7.2 Box Set Already Available In America

Why the hell does it take so long to release the full season set?!

You have to understand, they have to take the content from two existing products and combine them into one singular product. These execs aren't getting paid enough for the peons to do this quickly.

GallifreyBase has, of course, not disappointed those of us hoping for a hilarious overreaction to this. The following, with bolding and capitalization in the original, is now pinned to the top of every page:
To all our members, new and old: We have a rule here that forbids any discussion of illegally obtaining episodes of Doctor Who. This, naturally, includes torrenting and link sharing. Because torrenting itself is not illegal - it's a legitimate distribution method, regardless of the legality of the files being distributed - we NORMALLY permit discussions of torrenting as a distribution method. But that's under normal circumstances. Due to the early release of Series 7 discs, these are not normal circumstances. Therefore, for the next 7 days until 19 May 2013, we are officially making ANY AND ALL discussion of torrenting or link sharing, or any other mention of distributing, acquiring, ripping, sharing, searching for or finding ANYTHING distributed illegally, grounds for a ban that will last anywhere from 7 to 14 days. Consider this your only warning. Thanks.
Is it the futility or the pomposity that's funnier? I can't decide.
It seemed to do the trick. By the way Moffat does mention it a few times in the new DWM. Only 210 people preordered and received it early.

So I'd imagine if they could pinpoint approximately where the original uploads originated, they could trace it back to the customer. If they wanted.

It's not a straight forward repackage - there will be extra extras. It makes financial sense to leave it a while, the two halves have a chance to sell on their own then.

In the UK most series wouldn't get a release until the next series is on air - then they can benefit from cross promotion.

The US does the same. That never made any sense to me - if you weren't watching the show from the beginning, that makes it impossible to catch up.
