Nope. Mines showing as 'Processing' still. The exact same thing happened with series 7. A few weeks later they they said it was now sold out (despite being pre ordered) and tried to intimate that if I joined their premier service I might have better luck on future orders. I reordered through Amazon Prime and tried to cancel outright their order. Lo and behold they magically found a copy and dispatched it anyway saying 'well its been sent now.'

Unfortunately I cant do that again for this as Amazon only have one copy for sale at £129.00. So now I'm going to have to wait and see what happens next...
I've just contacted them on Twitter to ask about dispatch - Mine on there hasn't been dispatched either.

That said, S6 showed up a month late so who knows.

I cancelled mine at Zavvi by mistake i had the Web of Fear preordered and wanted to cancel that and get from Amazon but they cancelled the entire order.

This arrived yesterday - so happy to finally get it!

I missed out on the original the first time round. A temporary cash flow problem at the worst time.

I confess, since the announcement of series one being released on steelbook back on 2017 this is what I've had my eye on, waiting for.

The Web of Fear steelbook hasn't been released yet.

However, I would expect the Series 8 steelbook to get announced soon.
@FN-2187 - here you go:

And, no, I did not know or have any inside information - I just felt that it was likely to be announced soon. Just not how soon! :)

Just picked one up off ebay for £50. Like many, I missed the boat on this one not realising it would sell out so fast.

I hate to succumb to scalper prices but, from what I've seen, the price on these looks to go North pretty fast.

To be fair mate, I KNEW that if any of them was going to sell fast, it was likely to be this one. Thats why I ordered so quickly, and I think I go the last copy Zavvi had available, for I checked the webpage a couple of minutes later to check on details and it showed as 'sold out' - just imagine, if I'd read the notification email a minute later than I had, and I would have missed out!

And yeah, I agree with you, I think this one'll quickly overtake the scalper prices of the early ones.

But I'm happy for you that you've now got a copy.
