The Complete 7th Series Boxset - UK Update

Thanks to Blogtor Who, it seems that BBC Worldwide have updated their UK Complete Seventh Series Boxset details.  It has been confirmed as a 5 disc set - and not a 3 disc as previously announced.

The other update is that this release WILL now include "The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe" which was originally, mysteriously omitted from the UK release.  The BBC Worldwide email states:
Originally the decision was taken not to include this release on the box set as it had previously been released as a standalone product. However after listening to feedback from our fans we have decided to include the episode and its prequel on the set. The price of the set will not be altered as a result of the change of contents
Unfortunately, what HASN'T changed is the release date - and those of us in the UK will still be waiting over a month after the US release.

I did receive a very short, two sentence email reply from BBC Worldwide as regards this rather odd scheduling:
Thank you for your e-mail enquiry. We very much hope this situation will not be repeated. 
I have asked for further details so we will just have to wait and see.

But hey - at least they've listened on one point...
