BBC Releasing Doctor Who Seasons 1-7 Blu-Ray Set With Sonic Screwdriver Remote!

It Goes Ding When There's Stuff

A few months back, I posed a query to Twitter asking if anyone knew of plans to release the Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant Doctor Who seasons on blu-ray. Many told me it would never happen because of technical reasons I couldn’t quite grasp (they can put Hitchcock films on blu-ray, why not something from 2005?) but I held out hope considering, you know, the 50th anniversary is a great opportunity to sell stuff. Lo and behold, an email from BBC Home Entertainment landed in my inbox with news of a giant blu-ray release. Hit the jump for details.
