All 11 Doctors together at one time is something to make any fans hearts race faster.
this time though it's because they are being released as an 11 figure boxed set for the first time.

I suspected this part but as the BBC now has to show responsibilty for it's earnings since the change of government in the UK this was no surprise to me.
