Doctor Who's Christmas special finally headed to DVD and Blu-ray

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.

This is the first season i don't feel the urge to rush out and buy on Bluray. The second half especially was a complete let down.

Lets be fair this series hasnt been anywhere near as good as whats gone before and i have to say i think the break that  was inserted didnt help matters,we live in the UK i dont want us to go down the road of america with breaks in the series here,there and everywhere it drives me mad.


As for this dvd i cant say i'll be picking it up anytime soon its the usual lightweight Doctor Who christmas fare so i think i'll pass.

Day by day, the BBC appear to be copying the nonsense that is US TV executives. They Split the series in two then they are late to release this. Expect more madness from the BBC. I'll just torrent it. That way I get to watch it NOW and it's on my NAS.
