Doctor Who The Complete Series 7 Steelbook

Available to order from and

Matt Smith returns for his third series as the Eleventh Doctor. Fourteen big, blockbuster-movie episodes – each a brand new epic adventure featuring new monsters and some familiar foes as you’ve never seen them before. The first part of this series sees the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) return for their final voyage with The Doctor.

They save a spaceship full of dinosaurs, don Stetsons in the Wild Wild West and are even kidnapped by the Doctor’s oldest foe. But when they arrive in Manhattan the Weeping Angels are waiting for them – will The Doctor really lose Amy and Rory forever? Christmas brings The Doctor a new friend but how, where and when will he meet her?

      Mine was dispatched Thursday by Zoom. As they use Royal Mail I don’t expect it to arrive on time due to their backlog but looking forward to having it on my shelf.

    Just got my shipping notice from the US branch of Zavvi. Sooner than I expected it. Estimated to arrive around the 16th.

    Matt is better on the Pond side of the cover, but otherwise I prefer the Clara side. Both are good though

    Between the 2 sides, an impressive number of episodes feature, it makes some of the earlier ones look a bit plain!

      The usual layout is monsters on back, Doctor and companions on the front. However as the Series was split in two it makes sense to have done it this way.

      The next one will no doubt be Day on Front, Time on back. Then back to normal layout from Series 8.

      They are all fantastic, only Series 3 is a bit of a let down when compared to the rest.

    Does anyone know if there is a chance of a re-release of season 9? I hope, cause i missed this one 🙁

    • daz

      November 2nd, 2020 - 11:20am

      Not a re-release of the original steelbook but it will get a new one with different design to go with this current range.

      I expect the new Series 10 one to include Twice Upon A Time too.

  • MJS

    October 29th, 2020 - 6:52pm

    I do love these steelbooks, but I will stop at 9. I have from 10 onwards. Unless they do something awesome with them…..

    • Coleman

      October 29th, 2020 - 9:04pm

      I think the only thing they could do to top these books is a steelbook but with the lenticular front.
      I’ve collected quite a few of the MCU ones.
      They still have a gorgeous design on the steelbook, but with the alternate lenticular design aswell.
      Either have the steelbook on show or use it with the lenticular cover. The covers a magnet so attaches to the steelbook easily
      (It’s so cool).

    • daz

      October 29th, 2020 - 9:31pm

      Remember the current steelbooks are not related to those already released for Series 9, 10, 11 and 12 already.

      They will no doubt continue upto whatever Series is currently on TV at the time.

      I’d be annoyed if they started doing Seasons as a Steelbook once the Limited Edition Range finishes. That’s a way to gurantee more people double dipping and lots of people collect Steelbooks as retain their value too.

  • Josef Lewandowski

    October 29th, 2020 - 5:43pm

    This is beautiful
    I really hope when they have done steelbooks for all new who that they will make steel books for: sarah jane adventures,torchwood,class,tv movie and it would be nice for them to release series 1 2 3 with the current logo

    • Coleman

      October 29th, 2020 - 5:57pm

      I’m all for series one and two rereleased.
      There very expensive on the secondary market.

    • Bobby Fackrell

      November 1st, 2020 - 10:39pm

      I already emailed them about re-releasing series one a few months ago, let’s just say they didn’t say no.

  • Coleman

    October 29th, 2020 - 2:59pm

    Just wondering, could the Winter Quay sign still be removed. I remember something similar happened to season three.
    Once the case was shown, many people complained about the mistakes and they managed to rectify it before release.
    Probably would be better without the writing, if only for continuity to match the rest of the set.

    • booboo

      October 29th, 2020 - 4:00pm

      The other cover was understandably changed because it contained the wrong series Master Image, i can’t see them changing this because a few people dont like it.

    • MickeySmith07

      October 29th, 2020 - 4:22pm

      What’s wrong with it?

    • Coleman

      October 29th, 2020 - 4:59pm

      Really like the cover, I mentioned below, looking forward to having it in my collection.
      BUT, as a few people have mentioned it does stand out abit, almost like a title of a film.
      I genuinely believe some people (not hardcore fans) will be googling this when they see it in shops to see what this “New films” about, not realising it’s Dr Who.
      Just my opinion though.

    • J45ON96

      October 29th, 2020 - 5:24pm

      You’ve got to bear in mind when it’s on sale, brand new in shops, they’ll have the J-card with “Doctor Who, Series 7” on it, so I completely disagree.

    • Coleman

      October 29th, 2020 - 5:38pm

      True Jason,
      I realised that after I posted.
      It should have Dr Who on the cardboard sleeve on the bottom.
      Thank God for that.

    Is there a series 8 steel book that’s due out? That’s my favourite season and would love a steel book of that

    • Coleman

      October 29th, 2020 - 3:08pm

      If I had to hazard a guess I’d say it will be next, they seem to be making the full set

    • MJS

      October 29th, 2020 - 3:17pm

      Most likely I’d say, but they seem to come out twice a year, so there’ll be a 50th anniversary set and then season 8

  • Anonymous

    October 29th, 2020 - 8:53am

    Wow this is absolutely stunning. I’m seriously blown away by these covers. Like it’s literally perfect.
    Love that Clara’s front and centre of part 2 as well.
    (except maybe Clara’s side should be on the front cos when you think of series 7 you think of part 2 don’t you.)

    • Mikey C

      November 2nd, 2020 - 10:09pm

      On the basis that Clara is in 9 episodes and the Ponds 6, I’d put Clara on the front as well 🙂

    • Rory

      November 3rd, 2020 - 10:28am

      Mikey C, they do have Clara on the front. She’s under Rory’s arm.

  • Anonymous

    October 28th, 2020 - 9:22pm

    Does anyone know if this includes night/day/time of the Doctor or will they come together on a separate steel book?

    • booboo

      October 28th, 2020 - 9:40pm

      doesn’t include any of those

    • Bicky

      October 29th, 2020 - 8:39am

      It just has Name of the Doctor on it

  • Dalekz

    October 28th, 2020 - 6:55pm

    Winter Quay, god I love that show!
    The artwork is nice mostly because there is a lot of Clara!

  • Jake

    October 28th, 2020 - 4:20pm

    Oh just beautiful.

  • René Campbell

    October 28th, 2020 - 3:42pm

    I’m in love with this artwork. This season ends the journey of 2 AMAZING characters…The Ponds but begins the adventures of my favourite companion ever…Miss Clara Oswald

    Ooh!, that is a gorgeous cover!

  • Doctor Stu

    October 28th, 2020 - 12:25pm

    Very good idea to split it into two, with the Amy and Rory section and Clara section, that Statue of Liberty weeping Angel though will always be cringey no matter how many effects they put on it

    • JL

      October 28th, 2020 - 2:20pm

      the statue of liberty weeping angel might be a silly concept, but I still really want it as an eaglemoss figurine

    • booboo

      me to

    • Doctor Stu

      October 28th, 2020 - 2:48pm

      Yeh me too XD just like the Absorbaloff, it’s silly and completely ridiculous but I really want one

  • Judooning

    October 28th, 2020 - 12:04pm

    I swear I say this every time one of these is released…this is the best design yet!
    I like it when they include a few more monsters on the cover.

      Will day of the doctor and time of the doctor get their steel book release?

    • booboo

      October 28th, 2020 - 12:42pm

      bound to, but they might put Time of The Doctor on a series 8 steelbook possibly

    • Bobby Fackrell

      October 28th, 2020 - 12:53pm

      I’ve ordered and I don’t even like the Smith years

    • Rory

      October 28th, 2020 - 2:18pm

      I’d expect Time to be on the 50th release, same as with the 50th boxset. Makes more sense to keep it on a Smith release rather than at the start of Capaldi’s first season

    • René Campbell

      October 28th, 2020 - 3:46pm

      I’m totally in love with this cover. The triceratops isn’t a good idea though as it already looked too fake in the episode, let alone drawn. But apart from that I totally love this especially the Clara half. Just wish they would redo season 3 Martha Jones Ofcourse gets the crappiest cover art even though she was one of the best companions ever. There’s so much they could’ve done with the season 3 artwork

    • Haza14

      October 29th, 2020 - 9:58am

      I’m really hoping they do a Day of the Doctor / Time of the Doctor steelbook release. I’m hoping they include all the special programmes that were on around the 50th as well. An Adventure in Time and Space, The Proms, The Science of Doctor Who, 3D version of day of the Doctor. Basically everything that was on the limited edition set, although no need for Name of the Doctor or anything that’s duplicated from this series 7 release. Really hope they do that. Having the extra stuff in Blu-ray would justify the price!

    • daz

      October 29th, 2020 - 11:30am

      Haza14. I hope they include everything from the original 50th Set. Agree, no real need for Name this time but I imagine it will be a straight copy of the original release.

      Although I have it from the Season 10 set and SJA Series 4 BR they should include ‘Death of the Doctor’ as a bonus disc so all of Matt’s stuff is in one place. It really should have been included in the Series 6 Steelbook.

      It would also be nice to get a new interview with Matt like they did for DT Specials release.

      And finally, I doubt they will include the 3D release of Day as 3D is dead now (I have it of course as only watch it in 3D) but I hope there is space for the original disc so I can put it in the Steelbook.

    • Star Lord

      October 29th, 2020 - 3:07pm

      Really hope they add a bonus disc for the Day/Time steelbook like they did for The Specials steelbook. Matt’s SJA episodes, the 2010 proms and a few other bits should be on there.

    • Haza14

      October 31st, 2020 - 12:00pm

      Yes agree both! Especially about maybe including an extra disc with a Matt Smith interview and the 2010 Proms! That would be great as it was sadly missing from the Series 6 set. It’s only on the Christmas Carol single release.

      I think SJA being included is unlikely sadly, as the 10th Doctor’s one wasn’t included either. For the moment I’m happy with that SJA episode on the Season 10 Classic Box Set and my original dvd so not too bothered about that. Although one day I would love to see SJA Blu-ray steelbooks, or a complete SJA Blu-ray set (possibly more likely) where seasons 1-3 have been upscaled to HD.

  • James Wallace

    October 28th, 2020 - 11:19am

    This looks great. That’s the best artwork I’ve seen. I’m tempted to get this one. Hope pond life is on it. With the other one I got pond life is on disc 2 I think but the asylum of the daleks is on disc one. Always bothered me that.

    • Rory

      October 28th, 2020 - 12:27pm

      Pond Life is on it, according to the details above. I hope they also have the coda to Angels Take Manhattan where Brian finds out what happened to his son and daughter in law.

  • Antonio Zambonini

    October 28th, 2020 - 11:16am

    Preordered this as soon came up in my emails on zoom only thing is got rid of my whole collection thanks too ps5 preorder lol but least now will have this in my collection and new more releases too come

    • Coleman

      October 28th, 2020 - 11:27am

      Ouch, that must have hurt.
      That’s something I’ve never done or could ever do in the future.
      Choose how much I want something, I could never part with part of my collection to fund it.

    • Antonio

      October 28th, 2020 - 1:00pm

      Trust me at a young age and costs for expensive stuff is always the hardest I admit lol

  • Coleman

    October 28th, 2020 - 10:43am

    Excellent, look forward to adding this to my collection.
    Only started collecting Dr Who steelbooks a couple of months ago, managed to get them all apart from 4 of the more expensive ones. Series one, Two, Nine and the Dalek sets(are price stupid on eBay now).

  • Rory

    October 28th, 2020 - 10:22am

    Immediately preordered. I’ve got all of the steelbooks so far, so this was a no-brainer. Still hoping they re-release series 11 with a less naff cover.

    Also, would be really nice to get a steelbook of the TV movie at some point. The classic series has collection boxsets. The reboot has the steelbooks. The movie is sitting there on it’s own, looking lonely.

    • René Campbell

      October 29th, 2020 - 1:55am

      Same. I have the entire collection so far…yes that includes season 9 which is now like £600 on eBay. But I too wish they would re release season 3 and 11. Season 3 is just messy and plain and Martha Jones deserves better ie. Jack on the front and the toclofane coming through a cracked sky on the back ! And season 11 has doctor who plastered across the cover which is hugely inconsistent with the rest of the collection.

  • Moodbeam

    October 28th, 2020 - 9:54am

    Aside from the Winter Quay logo this is perfect. I expect the 50th steel book will sell incredibly well .

    • daz

      October 28th, 2020 - 12:22pm

      Yeah. It is a bit too prominant as if it is the title of the steelbook.

      Be interesting to see what they do with the 50th steelbook next year.

      Hope they do Series 8 to 13 in this limited edition range.

    • Bicky

      October 28th, 2020 - 7:31pm

      Yeah, that winter quay writing is distracting.

    • René Campbell

      October 29th, 2020 - 1:52am

      I agree. I like the winter quay nod but it sticks out like a saw thumb

  • daz

    October 28th, 2020 - 9:14am

    Well as expected, with the 14/12 release date at least we know there will be no Classic Season release til next year then.

  • daz

    October 28th, 2020 - 9:03am

    Looks brilliant. Busy yes. But still great.

  • Mark C.

    October 28th, 2020 - 8:52am

    Like this, a bit busy but makes sense with the companion split.

    I would’ve swapped the inside though – Amy on the left, clara on the right.

    Still buying it!

    Ahhhhh I claimed I’d refrain from buying Series 7 again on Blu-ray but that is just stunning. Pre-ordered already hahaha. Smashing idea to give a cover to both parts of the series.

    Anyone know who the artist is?

    • Flashjacket348

      October 28th, 2020 - 10:17pm

      @Prowl1701 Zavvi have it so hopefully they send things stateside. I’m in NZ and I’ve bought from them before, so surely they must send stuff to the US. I know what Amazon uk is like, they don’t send stuff to NZ :/

  • Stewie456

    October 28th, 2020 - 7:10am

    Looks beautiful but curious which episodes are included, it says 14 so presuming day and time of the doctor will get a separate release but this still leaves one out (series 7 part A is 5 eps, part B is 8 and then the two specials snowman and the doctor the widow and the wardrobe = 15)

    • MJS

      October 28th, 2020 - 8:16am

      I think that’s an error as it clearly lists 15 behind the scenes. Must be one for each episode.

      At least now we know there must be a 50th set forthcoming which puts to rest all the questions.

  • Tardis7K

    October 28th, 2020 - 6:39am

    Very happy series 7 is getting a steelbook release
