I've been hanging out for this series since the New Series license was announced! (Couldn't understand why they weren't a starting range at the time, but as time went on it became pretty clear why) A definite pre-order from me... but I'll wait until late May/early June for the bundle
The price is the same as The War Doctor and less than The Tenth Doctor Adventures - and both of those have three episodes.
I expect BF views this as the kind of surefire hit that those are - given that this got a War Doc style four boxset announcement. But the higher price could also be indicative of a bigger cast than usual.
I also do hope that this will have some guest stars throughout (Classic Doctors, River, Jago and Litefoot characters like Ellie, Betterman, Jago himself...) - not necessarily at the same rate as River's series, but some connections to the universe around the Paternosters would be nice.
I suspect BF think this range will be popular enough to justify the slightly higher price required for a slipcover with individual CD cases.
I suspect it's the other way round. If the costs are higher (e.g. a more expensive cast) then it may make marketing sense to put them out in individual cases so people feel they're getting more for their money (and with n'er a thought for my storage crisis - I'd pay more for a nice compact jewel case personally...)
