THE COMPLETE SPECIALS EDITION
This story is also sold as part of The Complete Specials box set. The version in the DVD set has the same special features
as the standalone edition, and two additional ones. These are a 5.1 surround sound mix, and the full 56-minute edition
of Doctor Who Confidential that detailed the production of this story.
There is also a Blu-Ray edition of The Complete Specials box set. The Next Doctor was shot at standard-definition
PAL (576i) but for the Blu-Ray edition it has been up-converted to 1080i. The special features are the same as are in
the DVD edition of The Complete Specials set, but all at standard-definition NTSC (480i).
