It's a few months later than usual, but last year's Doctor Who Christmas special "The Snowmen" is finally coming to DVD and Blu-ray. Though the DVD releases of Doctor Who's yearly Christmas special typically arrive in February, "The Snowmen" will be released to home video on May 28, according to Amazon.
"The Snowmen," which aired on Christmas day, 2012, featured the (re-)introduction of new companion Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), as well as the (re-)introduction of seasonlong nemesis the Great Intelligence (Richard E. Grant, voiced in this special by Sir Ian McKellen). It's certainly an important episode of the series.
The set is really intended for those looking to purchase the Doctor Who: Series 7, Part 2 DVD, as it will likely be included in the show's Complete Series 7 set. There's no word yet on when that complete set will be released. Series 7, Part 2 is also being released on DVD and Blu-ray on May 28.
What do you think? Will you be picking up "The Snowmen" on DVD or Blu-ray, or will you be waiting for the seventh series to hit home video in its entirety?
Doctor Who will return for its 50th anniversary special on November 23.
