10 of the best Christmas Blu-ray box sets
Game of Thrones: Season 1 Gift Set
Not only do you get all ten episodes of the first season of HBO’s blood-and-boobs fantasy epic here, there's also a Wall-sized pile of extras – including a guide to the creation of the Dothraki language, a guide to the complicated, rich setting of Westeros and a paperweight in the shape of a dragon's egg.
Marvel's The Avengers
An obvious collection if there ever was one, this box set includes all the recent movies featuring Marvel's alliance of superheroes: Iron Man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and Avengers Assemble. Plenty of fun to be had there, and at a price that you don’t have to be "Tony Stark rich" to afford – though hardcore fans should be aware that the UK Avengers Assemble Blu-ray is a slightly different cut to the US Avengers disc, and is missing the director's commentary.
Sherlock Series 1 and 2
We’re not normally huge fans of the "reimagining" of classic works of literature, but Doctor Who writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have done a fine job of bringing Sherlock Holmes into the modern world in this BBC series. This set features all six episodes so far, and while it doesn’t come brimful of extra features, the stocking filler price is hard to ignore.
Men In Black: I-III
Light on feature filler, this three-disc set simply presents you what it says on the tin: all three movies in the entertaining Men In Black saga, with Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith putting in good work as the sombre-suited, Wayfarer-wearing government agents attempting to keep a lid on alien activity.
Magical Mystery Tour
One for die hard Beatles fans, the Fab Four's third film is an odd travelogue conceived and directed by the band themselves. As well as a remastered, restored copy of the film (with a new 5.1 soundtrack), this set features almost an hour of additional features as well as a vinyl copy of the accompanying EP and audio commentary from Paul McCartney.
