Tom Baker

Quick update here: BBC Worldwide has confirmed that there’s been a small delay in the release of the Doctor Who season 12 Blu-ray collection. It’s been put back – for undisclosed reasons – to June 18th 2018. Other than that, as you were…

Previously…

Earlier this year, we reported that in the US, Tom Baker’s first series in Doctor Who was being released on the Blu-ray format. Given that very little classic Who has made it to Blu-ray, this was notable news. But at the time, there were no plans we knew of to bring the release to the UK.

Good news, then. Not only is Doctor Who: The Collection Season 12 arriving on Blu-ray in the UK after all, it’s also got a release date. The set will be available from June 11th 2018, and include a fair wealth of new extra features too. What’s more, the artwork will be the first Doctor Who disc releases to include the brand new Doctor Who branding. Take a look…

As per the listing at Amazon, here’s the full list of extra features too…
