The Zavvi dilemma for outside UK customers not being able to order NotD or the Castle box set has now been rectified, (we can thank @paulboland and a few others!).
Ordered NotD from both Amazon.uk and Zavvi. Not taking a chance on a stock error mess up making me miss this one!
I have a hunch it's gonna sell out.
