      I just can’t believe there is no DVD of this incredible prom which I caught for the first time last night. Come on BBC you have really missed a trick by not producing a DVD. I would buy it like a shot, as I believe Dr Who fans all over the world would do.

    Please release DVD of Dr Who at Proms! I have children, grand children, sisters brothers in law, niece and nephews all missed it (sigh) and hubby and I have driven them nuts telling them about it! Also I would love to watch it again several times. All involved – Take your bow!

    Is there going to be a DVD released? WE live in America and were not able to watch the BBC1 broadcast. If not, there ought to be. Missing a great revenue earner by not doing so.

    I really hope this will be released as a DVD; we watched it on BBC yesterday and it was amazing! If only we could have been there, the atmosphere must have been incredible. We’ll definitely look out for the next one in the UK.

    I think it’s going to be on the red-button. If you have Freeview then try channel 301. Just not sure if it will be live.

      Hi nadia,

      It says there will be ‘special guests’ but it is unconfirmed that Jenna Coleman is presenting the event. I hope so!

      No, it’s far too early and isn’t really the place to do it.

      I heard that they will be announcing it…lets face it, they have to start the filming soon so it will get out anyway – they announced Matt Smith 12 months before he appeared on our screens…there is now less than 6 months til this fella appears on out TV.

    It probably will be, but as with previous years, probably not till christmas or new years.

      They don’t broadcast it until later in the year. The 2008 one was broadcast in Jan09 and the 2010 one in Sep10.
