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!).
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.
Doctor Who: The Return of Dr. Mysterio was a first in the long history of Doctor Who – it tapped into the global appreciation of superhero comics and movies by introducing one into the Whovian mythos for the 2016 Doctor Who Christmas Special.
The combination of Time Lord and superhero worked– it holds up to repeat viewing extremely well. It’s just a shame that, as usual, there is a paucity of bonus features on the home video release (in stores this week).
In what was an unlikely event even for the wildly inventive series Doctor Who, the show’s 2016 Christmas Special – Doctor Who – The Return of Doctor Mysterio teamed the Doctor with a superhero to (and here is where the show returned to a reasonably familiar scenario) save the world from an alien threat.
On February 21st, BBC Home Entertainment will release Doctor Who – The Return of Doctor Mysterio on Blu-ray and DVD – with bonus material including a special edition Doctor Who Extra.
Meet the Doctor’s new companion, Bill (in her own words), and learn something we’ve always kind of suspected about the Doctor but never heard him actually say out loud before, in the first trailer for the tenth season of Doctor Who.
