Doctor Who: The Church on Ruby Road to be Released on DVD and Blu-ray Next Month

The Church on Ruby Road, the first full adventure for Ncuti Gatwa’s Fifteenth Doctor, is due to be released on DVD and Blu-ray on 12th February 2024 — which means it’ll be a perfect Valentine’s Day present*!

The 2023 Christmas Day special introduced Millie Gibson as new companion, Ruby Sunday.

Rather funnily, the cast is listed as “Ncuti Gatwa, Milllie Gibson, and Davina McCall”; yes, McCall is in it, but you’d think some others actors — Anita Dobson at least — would be listed ahead of her cameo.

Anyway, here’s the synopsis:

Long ago, on Christmas Eve, a baby was abandoned in the snow. Today, Ruby Sunday meets the Doctor, goblins, stolen babies, and perhaps, the secret of her birth.

We presume this is like one of those “vanilla” releases of days gone by, and that the festive special will also be included in the Doctor Who Series 14 complete set, which is surely coming later this year once all eight episodes of the season have been aired.

The Church on Ruby Road is written by Russell T Davies, and directed by Mark Tonderai.

Oh, and don’t forget that you can also get the novelisation of The Church on Ruby Road, which is available now!

Will you be getting this DVD or Blu-ray? Are you content to just stream it on BBC iPlayer or Disney+? Or are you waiting for the complete series set?

*We do not hold ourselves responsible for any tears resulting from such a romantic gift.
