    I have just listened to this on TV and thought it was wonderful. My first thought was that my children would love to see this (in Manchester) and the second was to buy them the DVD. Is there one?
    Wonderful for the whole family.

    I can’t believe the BBC are not releasing this on DVD, what a sure way to do themselves out of easy money. I wanted to buy this after watching it on TV for my father as a Christmas present.

    I think the 2008 one was added as a special feature on one of the Dr Who Series DVDs, can’t they at least even do this?!

    I have tried everywhere to see if there is a DVD of Dr Who at the Proms 2010, no luck. I even contacted the BBC and they told me they are NOT releasing one! Unbelievable, this is the best thing I have ever seen, and now that my Sky+ has lost my recording, I will never see it again.
    If anyone reading this has a copy, or knows where there may be one, please contact me and let me know:

    This ‘Dr Who at the Proms’ concert is going to become an ‘All Time Classic’. Millions (probably billions) will buy the DVD when it becomes available. It has all the essential ingredients for phenominal success.

    From start to finish it’s a brilliant musical, technical and human performance from all involved. Congratulations to the composers, musicians and performers. You have come together in time (and outside time) to open our minds and souls and hearts to human experience.

    Believe me! This goes beyond first rate BBC entertainment… this is global…, this is star quality…, this deserves recognition from the powers that be.
