Becoming Bond (2017)
[#144 in 100 Films in a Year 2018]
More fun than a docudrama should be. And it made me really want to rewatch On Her Majesty's Secret Service, too... so...

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

This week's additions include the first release in what's being branded as Doctor Who: The Collection, a season-by-season re-release of classic-era Who on Blu-ray, with upscaled episodes and new special features. Hopefully it'll sell well enough that they'll continue to do all 26 seasons, a) because I want them all, but b) so I can replace more of my DVDs. Y'see, I intended for this set to replace my DVD copies of the five stories in it, but I own three of them in box sets with other stories, so I've got to keep those for now, and of the remaining two stories, one of the DVDs has a special feature I'm interested in that's been moved to another (theoretical) Blu-ray set, i.e. it'll only be released again if they complete the range. So, for now, of the five DVDs I should've been able to replace, only one actually can be!

Oh, and it's the monthly running time update this week too. Excitement overload!
