Doctor Who - Release Date, An Interesting Extra and Box Art for The Complete 5th Series


The Los Angeles Times says to expect it on DVD and Blu-ray in early November

Several weeks ago we reported the BBC America news that "a lush 6-disc collection is in works and should be available on both Blu-ray and DVD in time for the holidays" for Doctor Who - The Complete 5th Series. This is the 13-episode collection starring Matt Smith as The 11th Doctor and Karen Gillan as his companion, Amy Pond. This morning the Los Angeles Times posted an article giving an exact release date of November 9th. The newspaper's write-us also informs us about some interesting extras the releases for this title!

To quote the Times exactly, they said this: "it will contain a truly tantalizing extra: two newly filmed sequences, both written by Steven Moffat and available only in this collection. They are called "Meanwhile, in the TARDIS..." and, as that title suggests, they are drop-in moments that show what happens between the episodes." Smith and Gillan star in these newly filmed short sequences. They also star on the box art, which we have for you below courtesy of the newspaper article (please head over there using the above link for a slightly larger version, as well as to read the original Times story in full). This is strictly the Blu-ray version of the packaging, and may not be finalized for North America yet, so it could be subject to change.

Stay tuned for further updates, as the BBC and distributor Warner Home Video are expected to formally announce this title in the not-too-distant future (perhaps in conjunction with the upcoming San Diego Comic Con). Our thanks to reader Alex Frazer-Harrison for the heads-up about today's story in the L.A. Times. We'll keep you informed as further developments occur!

Order this title from Amazon.com
