Collecting Original Doctor Who DVDs On The Cheap
I collect DVDs, I have well over 3,000 of them. As you can probably guess I collect Doctor Who DVDs too, but I never buy any at full price, here is how I save money.
Car boots are always the first port of call, however I have only ever got one Doctor Who title from here (although 1000s of other DVDs!). The best place in the UK ATM seems to be here, open an account and create your wants list, when the title you want is at or below the price you have entered, you get email with a link, and all the main UK DVD retailers are included in the search, so its not fake, and they don't spam you with other rubbish!
When a new DVD title is released it can be pretty pricey, take the new Cyberman double, here, its just short of £30, but in about 9 months (or so) you will find it at about £10, which is when I buy. From a online shop I pay no more the £6 for a new Doctor Who DVD, including postage, £10 for a double title pack etc. You can get some really silly priced deals if you look for them!
Feel free to add DVD searches for other countries etc. as comments :)
