Doctor Who series 7 hasn’t even begun airing yet, but already approximate dates for its British DVD release have been revealed by various online retailers!

Amazon U.K. has listed Part 1 of the series with a November 12 release. Dates for Part 2 and the complete box set are a bit more vague – with spring and summer of 2013 being the only timeframe given. Unfortunately, there are no special features lists or any indication of Doctor Who Confidential-style documentaries, but we’re sure this information will be released closer to each set’s respective release.

So, what can we glean from this new information? Well, it looks like the second half of series 7 will begin airing no later than late March next year (the latest the DVD could be released and still hit a spring deadline would be May 27). The Doctor Who schedule for the rest of 2012 and 2013 is shaping up as follows:

Series 7, Part 1 – Airing from August 25 until September 22 (approximate)
2012 Christmas special – December 25
Series 7, Part 2 – Specific dates unknown, but most likely to begin between January and March 2013
50th Anniversary special – Beginning no later than November 23 (with more “specials” expected to air beforehand)
2013 Christmas special – December 25

What do you think of the approximate Doctor Who schedule for the next two years?

    The part 1 and 2 releases won’t have special features, but the complete box set should have quite a few things on it. Are they releasing the christmas special separately to volume 1 and 2?

      It will probably receive it’s own release, but depending on the continuity with the new companion it will either be included with volume 2 or just the whole series box set.

    I definitely like the part 2 spring release date. It makes it look more likely that there wont be a large break between the christmas special and part 2. After all, we’re already going to have to wait 3 months between the end of part 1 and the Christmas special – it seems a little unfair to make us wait again after that – especially when there probably isn’t too much of a story time gap between the special and part 2. Can’t wait to see what other specials we get next year.

    Looking at the air dates, I only now realize there’s not enough Who to keep me satisfied… lol. :’(

  • Paulinekhan

    Is that the same relese date for America too? Please. Let that be it (someone please ANWSER my question I’m like freaking out right now)

    • grapes9h5

      most likely yes. BBC America has been on pace with its brit counterpart for years now

    • Matt

      none of these dates are actually confirmed (except xmas obvi). When we have confirmed dates they will be the same for both BBC One and BBC America, with the assumed lag time for both to be prime time.

    Oh, glad we know when the Christmas specials are.

  • Gryffinclaw

    I still hate the whole confidential thing. That was the best part of getting the box set :(

    Wait, so does this mean that there won’t be a regular season for the 2013-2014 year? Just a bunch of “specials” again?  

    • Matt

      You’re kind of right. The 2012-13 season is broken up and spaced out again, and weird stuff like this year’s xmas special is part of the normal season (episode 6). That being said, the 50th anniversary special isn’t supposed to be part of the normal season, but who knows.

    Amazon.co.uk has advanced the DVD and Blu-ray Disc release date to 29 October 2012 for series 7 part 1.

  • anonymous

  • The Doctor

    Desperate to see the christmas special and series 7 part 2

  • Jamie Fidgett
