Does anyone know which Christmas special(s) will be part of this collection? Previous DW complete series included the Christmas Special of the year before, but since Series 7 had been split in two parts, there are TWO Christmas specials that could - or could not - be part of this!

Christmas Special 2011
Series 7 - Part 1
Christmas Special 2012
Series 7 - Part 2

Are all of these in it or do I have to get the CS 2011 separately? Thanks in advance for any insight...

From the reports I have seen on various DW websites this will now include BOTH Specials.

But the description on the BBC Shop website states clearly that the box set includes:
"Fourteen big, blockbuster-episodes - each a brand new epic adventure featuring new monsters and some familiar foes as you've never seen them before. In series 7 we see the Ponds return for their final voyage with The Doctor. They save a spaceship full of dinosaurs, don Stetsons in the Wild Wild West and are even kidnapped by the Doctor's oldest foe. But when they arrive in Manhattan the Weeping Angels are waiting for them. Meanwhile, Christmas brings The Doctor a new companion in the form of the young feisty Clara...

"Features every episode from the explosive series 7."

"Fourteen... episodes," "every episode from... series 7" and "Christmas brings... Clara." Sounds pretty clear to me that the BBC's own shop believes that it will not include "The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe". Are they right? I have no idea, but they should know better than almost anyone.

It was original not including both Xmas specials, but they agreed to change that after fans organised a petition

Hopefully they will have Doctor Who at the Proms 2013 on it, which was aired on Aug 26th 2013. This could be the reason why it is so late being released.
