Doctor Who Series 1 Steelbook Blu-Ray

Available to order from

Relive the acclaimed first series of Doctor Who with this limited edition Steelbook exclusive to Amazon.

Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor is wise and funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner (it’s difficult keeping up with friends when your day job involves flitting through time and space), his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world’s in danger.

But when it comes to human relationships, he can be found wanting. That’s why he needs new assistant Rose. Rose is a shop-girl from the present day. From the moment they meet, the Doctor and Rose are soulmates.

  • Easter Egg

They understand and complement each other. As they travel together through time, encountering new adversaries, the Doctor shows her things beyond imagination.

She starts out as an innocent, unfettered by worldly concerns. But she ends up an adventurer who, by the end of the series, can never go home again…

    IDEA: A boxset of Series 1-10 steelbooks after the individual Series are released?

    Amazing Series

    I changed to Blu-ray from Series 7 onwards and have never given a second thought to replacing my older DVD boxsets. But the Series 9 and Sherlock Series 4 steelbooks on my shelf are absolutely gorgeous, and today’s price-drop finally swayed me towards pre-ordering this.

    How many times has series 1 been re-released now? It’s a nice cover but I don’t think a lot of people will buy it

    Not interested got blu rays already and happy with them,

    Blu-ray Region _ ?

    • The Doctor

      February 17th, 2017 - 6:11pm

      Blu Ray disks are Region free

  • MJS

    February 17th, 2017 - 4:57pm

    It’s £24.99 now, but so too was the Power of the Daleks blu ray, but when it came out, I was only charged £22.99, but on the web it went back up to £24.99 later the same day. Pre-order now and you may get a discount on day of release

    BBC store are doing Series one for 6.49. Half price

      February 17th, 2017 - 5:33pm

      Yes but you only get to see it online you don’t get a physical copy

  • Kerr

    Just noted this is now £24.99 instead of £34.99, so get preordering, folks!

    Is this an upscale or a full remaster
    I might pick it up if it is a remaster

    • platon29

      February 18th, 2017 - 9:22am

      Upscale, it’s likely gonna be the same as the blu-ray release just with a different print on the disk and a nice new case.

  • Anonymous

    February 17th, 2017 - 8:26am

    Is this upscale releases or full re scans

    • Michael

      February 17th, 2017 - 9:49am

      It can only be an upscale as Doctor Who wasn’t recorded in High Definition until Planet of the Dead. However, if it was a new upscale at the correct speed I’d buy it. Highly unlikely though.

    • Ian

      February 17th, 2017 - 11:13am

      Think it’s the same as the other blu ray release.

  • Ian

    Nice cover and design but Ill pass, already have the series 1-7 box set.

  • The Dalek Whovian

    February 16th, 2017 - 8:54pm

    I really like the unquie design

  • Nicholas

    One thing that does bother me is how they use the classic logo on anything that isn’t Capaldi era now.

    I just wish that for this steelbook (and hopefully if they release more) they would use a white variant of the 2005 logo for Series 1-4 + specials, a white version of the 2010 logo (Doctor DW Who) for Series 5 and 6 and a white version of the 2012 logo (Doctor Who DW) for Series 7 and the 50th Anniversary specials, and then the 2014 logo for the Capaldi items.

    I also wonder, if they release steelbooks for the rest of the series, how they would do the 2009 and the 2013 specials. We already have the nice 50th Anniversary collectors Blu-Ray… would they just repackage that as a steelbook? Thats one of my biggest problems with this show – all the home releases have been so inconsistent xD

    • Jay Glover

      February 16th, 2017 - 9:20pm

      Yes, Should Have Been Release a while back

    • JA

      February 16th, 2017 - 10:52pm

      I think they did it for consistency, people like a matching set. Since Series 1-7 are considered “Classic” in the eyes of the BBC, the classic logo was the best choice for consistency. Same thing should happen to all merch from Capladi’s era by next year.

    • Nicholas Brent

      February 17th, 2017 - 10:34am

      But it isn’t even consistent this way because all of the Capaldi stuff has the current logo. If they do release steelbooks for the other series, what if by time they get to Series 8 it’s 2018 and has the classic logo on it. It won’t match Series 9. Tis silly.

    • James A

      February 17th, 2017 - 8:01pm

      Then they should re-release Series 9 with the classic logo then too, makes sense. They re-released the Series 7 DVD with the classic logo like 9 months after its initial release.

  • Jay Glover

    February 16th, 2017 - 7:35pm

    My thoughts
    Very Nice but i already have the standard blu ray which I got £17.99
    I Think this is a bit too expensive for an upscale the art work is nice but too expensive and I would prefer it to be slightly lower in price

    • Dalek4ever

      February 16th, 2017 - 7:43pm

      Yes. Same

      February 17th, 2017 - 8:30am

      UPDATE: Amazon at least listened and it is 24.99

  • Tom

    More money grabbing! I’ve already got all the series & the spin-offs, so I don’t need to get this. I also hate Blu-Ray because they are only money grabbing items. It actually doesn’t make the sound of picture any better.

    • Jay Glover

      February 16th, 2017 - 7:36pm

      Yes, Just a little text improvement is the only read mayor change I spotted

    • Nicholas

      February 16th, 2017 - 8:27pm

      I also hate Blu-Ray because they are only money grabbing items. It actually doesn’t make the sound of picture any better.

      That’s not true at all. Blu-Ray is far superior to DVD. But assuming we’re just talking Doctor Who here, Series 1-4 might only be an upscale but there is a noticeable difference in quality.

    • lava tree

      February 16th, 2017 - 8:46pm

      I actually think that the sound and picture quality is better on blu ray, but i dont get them for everything. I have got Suicide Squad and ill only get another blu ray if i really enjoyed the film/program.

      Blu rays are overrated, but if its something u really like watching, go for it.

  • DalekAgent

    February 16th, 2017 - 7:31pm

    I love the look of this, Ive been wanting to get Series 1-9 on blu ray for a while now (although i already have them on Dvd) because i got a blu ray player for christmas and i was going to buy the Series 1-7 blu ray boxset but that is too expensive now and im so glad i waited because now i can hopefully get the blu ray steelbooks for all the series’ if they release one for Series 2-8

  • Matt Edwards

    February 16th, 2017 - 6:46pm

    AMAZING looking!! really hope they make the whole series 1-7 in this as that would make a beautiful collection! and i think £35 is very fair for what it is after all it is Blu-ray and a steelbook your getting.

    • Jay Glover

      February 16th, 2017 - 7:33pm

      I think they should lower it a bit
      £17.99 for a standrad blu ray upscale is very fair
      £24.99 would be a fair price for this

  • ronariverah

    February 16th, 2017 - 6:29pm

    Bought the original DVD Tardis shaped DVD Boxed back in the day for £50 (?) and brought the Series 1 – 7 boxed set on Blu-ray so as much as I love a steel book no.

    Man, I love a Steel book. !

    • ronariverah

      February 16th, 2017 - 6:30pm

      Maybe if is gets cheaper.

  • Omega63

    February 16th, 2017 - 5:38pm

    Beautiful, but too expensive for me to duplicate. Wish I never had any Doctor Who new series DVD’s now, because it’s clear they will do multiple steelbooks if this one does well, to fit with the Series 9 one. I never bought the Series 9 one for the sake of consistency, and now they’ll release others to fit in with it.

    • JA

      February 16th, 2017 - 8:14pm

      Agreed. When Capaldi leaves, they’ll probably re-release Series 8-10 with the classic DW logo, since any past Doctor’s series is considered “classic” in the eyes of the BBC.

  • alan

    February 16th, 2017 - 5:13pm

    Annoys me that the ‘series 1’ text is so close to the logo on the spine, can they not space these things out given the length of the spine?

    • prototype dalek

      February 16th, 2017 - 5:59pm

      Agreed, maybe even in large it a bit as well

  • Nicholas

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:58pm

    That is very nice! £35 is a lot of money for a double dip though. I’ll have to think about that

  • JasonisnotaRobot

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:55pm

    I really like this but because it’s 34.99 and the fact that it’s on Netflix I’ll probably leave it

  • Reece

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:54pm

    Never doubled dipped before – but i may have to with this!

  • Matthew

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:46pm

    I never use blu ray but THIS IS BEAUT!!!

  • TheWarDoctor

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:45pm

    I’m getting this.

  • Shallacatop

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:37pm

    Lovely cover. Not for me, but I’d be all over one for the 50th Anniversary Collection.

    • Jordan Scott

      February 16th, 2017 - 4:46pm

      That would be great as I missed the normal release first time round! Also would be nice in honour of John Hurt.

    • Shallacatop

      February 16th, 2017 - 6:56pm

      Yeah, the original release was limited, particularly the BluRay. The original packaging is quite chunky compared to the other sets too!

    • Jay Glover

      February 16th, 2017 - 7:37pm

      Yes, Totally That would be bought in a instant for me

    • JA

      February 16th, 2017 - 8:11pm

      If they did re-release the 50AC, I’d prefer it without The Name of the Doctor, since it already should be part of a Series 7 Steelbook xD

  • PVW

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:35pm

    Wow that’s FANTASTIC!
    I’ve been thinking about upgrading to Blu-Ray (I have everything from the 50th onwards) so that’s series 1 sorted 🙂

  • Jordan Scott

    February 16th, 2017 - 4:32pm

    That is an awesome cover with the Daleks and everything! On Chris’ birthday too! 😀
