BBC Home Entertainment has declared February 13th as Doctor Who Day with the release of the show’s 2018 Christmas Special, Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time, and Doctor Who: The Peter Capaldi Years arriving in stores.
Doctor Who: The Peter Capaldi Years is worthy of note as, besides all the bonus material featured on the home video releases of Capaldi’s three season sets, it will also include an extra disc with never-before-seen bonus content including deleted scenes from season eight.
Series/season ten of the rebooted Doctor Who found Peter Capaldi’s grumpy Scottish Doctor with the angry eyebrows ending his three-year run on Doctor Who – capping a series that mixed whimsy with horror with Doctor Twelve regenerating.
Doctor Who: The Complete Tenth Series will materialize on Blu-ray and DVD on November 7th – with over six hours hours of bonus content including the 2016 Christmas special The Return of Dr. Mysterio (and my personal favorite bonus category – audio commentaries!).
While the BBC was making history by naming the first female Doctor, the current showrunner was heading a trip to San Diego Comic-Con 2017 – where he presented the first teaser for the 2017 Doctor Who Christmas Special, Twice Upon a Time.
The teaser reunites the Doctor with Bill Potts and features a unique event with the first and twelfth Doctors teaming up.
Doctor Who: Twice Upon a Time will premiere on December 25th, of course.
The fifth episode of Doctor Who: Season 10 finds The Doctor and Bill on a space station that seems to want to rid itself of oxygen and spacesuits that want to kill their wearers – which might be why the episode is called Oxygen.
Doctor Who airs on Saturdays (9/8C) on BBC America.
Tickets as on sale now for a special Doctor Who event: the tenth and final season premiere for Peter Capaldi’s Doctor in theaters nationwide for two nights only: Monday, April 17 and Wednesday, April 19.
In addition to the feature content, audiences will enjoy the premiere episode of the Doctor Who spinoff series Class, featuring a guest appearance by the Doctor himself, Peter Capaldi, and the never-before-seen bonus feature Becoming the Companion, in which fans will travel with new companion Pearl Mackie from the London stage through the doors of the TARDIS to a once-in-a-lifetime role, or as Pearl says, “the most insane thing that’s ever happened to me.” The bonus feature includes exclusive interviews with Pearl Mackie, Peter Capaldi, and Steven Moffat, and is narrated by Osgood herself, Ingrid Oliver.
