Most of the DVDs that were released have a Region 2 coding. The next DVD releases were in New Zealand and Australia with Region 4 coding and North America with Region 1 coding. With every Doctor Who DVD released in different countries it has different packaging and the features included in them. The DVDs always includes commentaries from the actors or casts who were part of the TV series. Starting late 2006, standard edition releases became available where in there are fewer additions to the DVD as compared to the special edition releases. The special edition release of Doctor Who includes a set of 2 or more serials that are related. The standard edition releases are more affordable.
