Coming Soon: Season 25 Announced as Next Blu-ray Set in Doctor Who The Collection

The eight-disc set, starring Sylvester McCoy as the Seventh Doctor and Sophie Aldred as Ace, includes Remembrance of the Daleks, The Happiness Patrol, Silver Nemesis, and The Greatest Show in the Galaxy.

The set further features exclusive brand new extended special editions of all four adventures; these come with unseen footage, updated special effects, immersive surround sound, and surprises.
