Posted July 10, 2013 01:17 AM by Webmaster
BBC Home Entertainment has announced and detailed the Blu-ray release of Doctor Who: The Complete Seventh Series, a set that features all 13 Series Seven episodes, both the 2011 and 2012 Doctor Who Christmas specials ("The Doctor, The Widow & The Wardrobe" and "The Snowmen"), and numerous extras including commentaries, behind-the-scenes bonus content and more. The Complete Seventh Series streets on September 24th.
Official Synopsis: Matt Smith returns as the Eleventh Doctor faces new monsters and familiar foes like you've never seen them before. The first part of this series sees the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) in their final voyage with The Doctor. They save a spaceship full of dinosaurs, don Stetsons in the Wild West and are even kidnapped by the Doctor's oldest foe. But when they arrive in Manhattan, the Weeping Angels are waiting.
Christmas brings with it a new companion for The Doctor named Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman). But how, where and when will he meet her again? And how does this Impossible Girl defy death? The final eight episodes of Series Seven finds The Doctor and his new companion battling monsters on distant alien planets, trapped on a Russian submarine with a deadly passenger, chasing terrifying ghosts, and coming face to face with an army of upgraded Cybermen, all while The Doctor's oldest secret threatens to be revealed.
The Complete Seventh Series includes the following episodes and specials: "The Doctor, The Widow & The Wardrobe" (2011 Christmas Special), "Asylum of the Daleks," "Dinosaurs on a Spaceship," "A Town Called Mercy," "The Power of Three," "The Angels Take Manhattan," "The Snowmen" (2012 Christmas Special), "The Bells of Saint John," "The Rings of Akhaten," "Cold War," "Hide," "Journey to the Center of the TARDIS," "The Crimson Horror," "Nightmare in Silver" and "The Name of the Doctor."
good to know I won't have to buy either of the Christmas specials seperate, also good to know they're putting prequels too, just hope it's all like 8 or 9 of them.. kind of surprised they didn't wait until after the 50th anniversay and this year's Christmas special since it won't be back until last 2014.
Everything that can be on Blu-ray is, all of the current series before the Planet of the Dead special was filmed digitally in PAL resolution, and as I understand it, most of the original series was filmed partially or entirely on videotape, the only one shot entirely on film was Spearhead from Space, which is coming out on Blu-ray
@lordmorpheus72 - that should be part of the prequels, all in all there should be 10
The Doctor, The Widow, and The Wardrobe prequel
Asylum of the Daleks prequel
The Making of the Gunslinger (A Town Called Mercy prequel)
Demon's Run: Two Days Later (The Snowmen prequel #1)
The Great Detective (The Snowmen prequel #2)
Vastra Investigates (The Snowmen prequel #3)
The Bells of St. John prequel
She Said, He Said (The Name of the Doctor prequel #1)
Clarence and the Whisperman (The Name of the Doctor prequel #2) - supposedly exclusive to The Complete Seventh Series
there's also three Strax Field Report short webisodes and one where the Doctor and Clara find a Bafta in the TARDIS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbl4iYyNOMs), along with the Red Nose Day special, those would be nice to have on it... but I doubt it.
Hopefully it'll be an improvement on the last two boxed sets, which were plagued with intermitent pulsing digital noise and very light on extras. The BBC really haven't been taking the BD releases seriously so far.
WOW! At last! Last December, Best Buy had terrific sales on the previous two seasons -- here's hoping they'll have one this year. Doctor Who/Matt Smith episodes have been top notch. In regard to 3D, the upcoming 50th anniversary special with the 10th and 11th Doctors will be filmed and screened in 3D -- should be most interesting in many ways!
@kevin87, thanks for the info! Best buy has Part 1, Part 2, and The Snowmen on sale for $15 each right now. was trying to decide if i'd be better off with the 3 individual releases. but think i'll wait.
