Collection Count

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

As promised last week, another pile of additions. No records being challenged this time, but it's still bigger than the norm... although, as I've been a bit purchase-mad of late, maybe this is the current norm. Well, it can't last forever... but it will last until next week, at least, when I've got another pile of sales acquisitions turning up. I must develop some restraint.

Number of titles in collection: 2,318 [up 6]
Of which DVDs: 1,112 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 1,206 [up 6]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 45 [no change]

Number of discs in collection: 6,034 [up 12]
Number of films: 2,711 [up 5]
Number of TV episodes: 8,792 [up 8]
Number of short films: 690 [up 1]

One of this week's additions is the new animation of Doctor Who serial The Faceless Ones, and it presents a 'challenge' in terms of counting: how many episodes are on it? It's a 6-part serial, but it contains the whole animated serial in colour, and in black & white, and also the two surviving live-action episodes. You might say "it's a 6-parter, so it's 6", but those are all viable viewing options to me, so does that mean it's 14 episodes? Or split the difference and say 8 -- 6 animations (in colour or black & white) plus 2 live-action? I think that's what I'll go with, partly because the last animated release, The Macra Terror, also had both colour and b&w versions and I only counted it as 4. I'm not sure that's the right way to go about it (it seems to hedge it, rather), but it'll have to do.

See you next week, faithful reader.
