For the recent BBC revival of Dr. Who, Amazon lists (as of 3:45 pm today) the following for the DVD of the 2005 season:
“Doctor Who (2005 TV Series)
DVD ~ Joe Ahearne
Availability: This title will be released on December 31, 1969. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives.”
This is brilliant: use time-travel to sell a product about a time-traveller!
I don’t think the sales in 1969 will be very promising though, unless they come up with a bundle that includes a DVD player and a television capable of connecting to a DVD player.
