Stunning Series 8 Bluray/DVD Cover Listed In Australian Stores

It may seem strange to be thinking about buying a box set of Series 8 of Doctor Who before you’ve seen little more than snippets of a dinosaur crunching his way through London and the new Doctor making poor Clara all uncomfortable, but plans are clicking into play for the new Doctor’s first run to appear on shiny disc.

While the standard edition’s artwork (a holding image of Capaldi’s striking that pose in his first photo shoot in costume) is still labelled TBC on retailers’ sites, a Australian seller has given a preview as to what the limited collectors’ version will come wrapped in, at least in that part of the world.

JB Hi-Fi show a smart looking, understated cover featuring a architect’s drawing of the good ship TARDIS, complete with measurements. So if you want to knock up a police box after you’ve enjoyed the Doctor’s thrilling battles with Cybermen, Daleks and all those other villains we don’t even know about yet, you can.

No word yet as to what extras we can look forward to, but no doubt this information won’t be too far off. In this post-Confidential era there’s certainly room for BBC Worldwide to go to town on bumping these sets up with unscreened behind the scenes material.

The box set will hit the shops a matter of days after the conclusion of the series (November 17 in the UK, a couple of days later in Australia). A standalone release of Deep Breath is also in the offing in early September.

has watched Doctor Who since those great big spiders did for Jon Pertwee, and it's way too late to stop now. When he's not at his job working for a charity in Hull he spends his time following Hull City's fortunes, listening to Bruce Springsteen and wondering why it took thirty years too long for Doctor Who action figures to come along. Favourite stories include the one with the mummies, the one with Mr Sin and the one with the Mona Lisa. Currently listening to: Tom Baker at 80 (Big Finish interview). Reminiscences, religion, tall stories - it's all there. Great stuff.

    Looking at that cover – in particular at the ‘Press Here’ panel – I wonder if a TARDIS sound chip will be included…
