Flux on Blu-ray: Doctor Who Series 13 to be Released on Limited Edition Steelbook

As well as on DVD, Doctor Who: Flux will be released as a limited edition steelbook in January 2022.

Doctor Who Series 13 will follow the precedent set by the previous seasons, with a painted cover depicting the Thirteenth Doctor, Jodie Whittaker, with her companions on the reverse. This is a Blu-ray set, collecting together around 6 hours of material.

Here’s the blurb:

She’s back. The Thirteenth Doctor is returning for the thirteenth series, a six-part Event Serial.

Since their last epic battle in Revolution of the Daleks, the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker) and Yaz (Mandip Gill) have been exploring the universe together but with the Doctor now questioning everything about her past she will undoubtedly be searching for answers…

This adrenalin fuelled, universe-spanning series will also see an addition to the TARDIS with actor and comedian John Bishop (Accused) joining the cast as Dan Lewis. Dan will quickly learn there’s more to the Universe than he could ever believe.

Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones, Broadchurch) is also set to make his debut on Doctor Who as recurring character, Vinder. Jacob’s new role will see him join forces with the Doctor, Yaz and Dan as the Doctor faces her biggest ever adventure.

Series 13 will introduce some terrifying new adversaries and the return of truly iconic old enemies. Expect action, fun, scares and extraordinary new worlds as the Doctor and her friends confront a deadly evil.

The set will collect together all six instalments of Flux; that is:

  1. The Halloween Apocalypse.
  2. War of the Sontarans.
  3. Once, Upon Time.
  4. Village of the Angels.
  5. Survivors of the Flux.
  6. The Vanquishers.

It’d be great if it included the festive special too, but it’s pretty unlikely — more likely is that it will form a further set alongside two more specials next year, and will probably be available in time for Christmas 2022.

The previous steelbook was released in May 2020, while various steelbooks from Series 1 onwards have quickly sold out — so if you’re desperate to continue your collection, we advise you pre-order now!

Doctor Who: The Complete Series 13 steelbook will be out on 24th January 2022, exclusively from Amazon.
