Amazon doesn't require a minimum spent on DVDs and most of the items for free shipping anymore! I don't know if that was made possible because of the new contract, but is certainly good news for people residing in the UK. If only the lowered their prices on the Prime delivery deal... [-o<

Hold your horses - I recently had an email from Moviemail saying: "This item has been held up in production, it should be with us and ready to be despatched by the 23rd of October." So not too much of a delay, but there you are.

Final copies arrived late, on Friday. It's finished, but will take a few extra days to reach to suppliers. Sorry for the delay.

Any reviews in the next week will be from final checkdiscs only. We only received finished product, with box, sleeves, booklets, etc on Friday.

The three booklets are really nice.

It's probably a final dastardly plot from the infernal Doctor to cause despair in film-lovers impatiently waiting for this one (myself among them).

Hm Amazon.co.uk finally reflects the change in dispatch due to the delay. The dispatch estimate is now October 27-30, while delivery is estimated at October 29-November 5 :( Unless of course it gets sorted out sooner (keeping my fingers crossed on this).

Its noted in the Mabuse boxset that it would be delayed since the final discs arrived later than expected, thus it would also arrive later to the suppliers than originally intended. As for Phantom not sure about that, whether its also been delayed slightly due to the discs arriving later than expected.

Amazon is great in that they treat their estimates as just that: estimates. The moment they get new supply, they begin shipping it, even if it's way sooner than they originally inform you that it will be. So I wouldn't fret if I were you.

Well my set arrived today, somewhat I now have to fight customs over this seeing as they arbitrarily decided to slap customs charges amounting to roughly Twenty GBP if I convert it(yes arbitrarily the system is that bad) so my set is delayed. I want to rip the customs officer apart if they do intend to stick to charging me, I wonder if I'll get to watch this set :cry:

If you don't pay the customs duty you won't get it, simple as that.

because they turned out to be the cheapest, most of the time ship stuff well before the official release date (just not this time) and (most important) the orders within 2 or 3 days from the UK (I live in The Netherlands so that`s pretty damn quick).

I sent them an email and they responded today and told me it was dispatched earlier. Then I received a dispatch confirmation.
