After the initial Amazon US listing, the BBC have confirmed details of a DVD & Blu-ray release for Series 9: Part 1.
The two-disc boxset includes the first six episodes of the season – The Magician’s Apprentice, The Witch’s Familiar, Under the Lake, Before the Flood, The Girl Who Died and The Woman Who Lived. Also included here is a set of three behind the scenes documentaries on the making of each two-parter. The synopsis for the DVD is as follows:
Peter Capaldi returns as the Doctor alongside Jenna Coleman with guest stars including Maisie Williams and Rufus Hound as well as the brilliant Missy (played by Michelle Gomez). Now that the Doctor and Clara have established a dynamic as a partnership of equals, they’re relishing the fun and thrills that all of space and time has to offer. Tangling with ghosts, Vikings and the ultimate evil of the Daleks, they embark on their biggest adventures yet…
The DVD and Blu Ray are priced ay £16.99 and £19.99 each, and can be pre-ordered (UK only) from the BBC Shop here. A similar Part 2 DVD for the final six episodes of the season will likely be released later this year or in early 2016 alongside a complete boxset.
