Doctor Who Series 8, the debut season of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, will be released next month as a special steelbook Blu-ray!
This follows previous sets dedicated to the first seven seasons of 21st Century Who, plus the 2009 Specials and, most recently, the 50th anniversary celebrations including The Day of the Doctor, An Adventure in Space and Time, and The Time of the Doctor.
Series 8 saw the Doctor accompanied once more by Clara Oswald, played by the wonderful Jenna Coleman.
Here’s the blurb:
There’s a brand new face at the controls of the TARDIS as Peter Capaldi becomes the Twelfth Doctor steering the blue box. In a feature-length opener we see the Doctor crash land in Victorian London.
As Clara struggles to recognise the man she thought she knew so well, killers are stalking the capital. A slaughterhouse restaurant and a buried space ship lead the Doctor into a confrontation with a long forgotten foe … but how far will this new man go to protect his friends? The Doctor and Clara encounter wonders and horrors. They meet a fleet of Daleks while attempting to rescue a stranded ship of human survivors, face ranks of Cybermen stalking the Earth, and go back in time to join Robin Hood in a fight with killer robots. As Clara falls for handsome fellow teacher Danny, can she keep her two extraordinary lives going?

Series 9 was previously released as a steelbook many years ago, but we presume the range will continue and re-release this, as well as Series 10, seeing as both are now long out of circulation.
Doctor Who: Series 8 Steelbook is released on 19th April 2021.
