Doctor Who - Early Info about Plans for 7th Series, Pt 2 and Complete 7th Series

'The Snowmen' plus 8 upcoming new episodes are coming on DVD, Blu-ray Disc

Posted by David Lambert
This past Friday the folks at the BBC American Shop online store posted a blog update about upcoming DVD plans for Doctor Who. They've confirmed that they are indeed working on Blu-ray Disc and DVD editions for both Doctor Who - The 7th Series, Part 2 (with the remaining 8 episodes of the current season that returns to broadcast March 30th with the episode titled "Phantom of the Hex"), AND for Doctor Who - The Complete 7th Series on both formats as well.

They are quick to point out that they are "not forgetting last month's special 'The Snowmen,' which will be included on all four releases." That Christmas special re-introduced Jenna-Louise Coleman as the Doctor's new companion, and saw the return of Neve McIntosh as the Silurian "Madame Vastra," Catrin Stewart as her human wife "Jenny Flint," and Dan Starkey as the Sontaran, "Strax." It also saw Richard E. Grant (Doctor Who and the Curse of Fatal Death, Scream of the Shalka) as the villain of the story, "Dr Simeon." NOTE: There is no word saying that the 2011 Christmas special "The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe," already sold separately, will be included on any of these releases.

Additionally, the blog update notes that there are now 11 months until the official 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, which debuted on Nov. 23, 1963 (the day after JFK was killed). So for each month, BBC America will air "a retrospective profile on one of the Doctors, starting with First Doctor William Hartnell." That first new profile would have aired last night, and they will continue with each of the 11 Doctors until the anniversary. Will these 11 profiles make it to DVD and/or Blu-ray Disc as part of the 50th Anniversary home video releases? Who knows? Stay tuned and we'll let you know if we find out anything further!
