The new season of Doctor Who will be on Blu-ray, DVD and Steelbook in August

The latest season of Doctor Who hasn’t even hit TV screens around the world yet. But you can already pre-order your own copy. The new season, starring Ncuti Gatwa as the Doctor alongside Millie Gibson’s Ruby Sunday, will arrive on DVD, Blu-ray, and Steelbook on the 12th of August. That’s just three weeks after the season finale, Empire of Death, drops on iPlayer and Disney+.

Though the final cover isn’t yet available, the pre-order listings indicate that, yes, this will be officially “Doctor Who Season One” on home media in the UK. There have been previous attempts to restart the numbering of the show, in 2005 (successfully) and 2010 (unsuccessfully). Those prospered or failed in large part based on what it said on the cover. So this is our clearest indication that the 2024 season will wind up commonly referred to even by fans as Season One.

 

There are no details yet on when to expect an American edition

The eight episodes will be spread across seven discs. There’s no list of extras yet. But the disc count suggests a set packed with more extras than the modern series has gotten in recent years. Items such as full episodes of behind the scenes show Doctor Who Unleashed, and the in-vision commentaries seem certain inclusions for a start.

UPDATED: Although the original listing suggested its exclusion, details of the set have now been updated to confirm it does include the 2023 Christmas Special The Church on Ruby Road. It also confirms that all the episodes of Doctor Who Unleashed are included as well as extras exclusive to the set.

There’s also no word on an American edition. Given the show’s new home on Disney+, however, that’s less surprising. Disney+ shows tend to stay exclusive to the platform for 2-3 years after being added.

Doctor Who: Season 1

The upcoming season of Doctor Who follows the Doctor and his companion Ruby Sunday as they travel across time and space, with adventures all the way from the Regency era in England, to war-torn future worlds.

Throughout their adventures in the TARDIS – a time-travelling ship shaped like a police box – they encounter incredible friends and dangerous foes, including a terrifying bogeyman, and the Doctor’s most powerful enemy yet.
