July 28th will see the release of Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead on blu-ray, (in North America) only two days after its broadcast on BBCAmerica. The 2009 Easter special, which is part of four specials to air this year was the first Doctor Who to be filmed in HD. This is a surprise for fans of the beloved sci-fi series but there is still no word on the broadcast or blu-ray release of the 2008 Christmas special "The Next Doctor".
The DVD release of the special will also ship on the 28th of July.
Retealing for $19.89 for the blu-ray (though you can get it cheaper on amazon.com) and 14.98 on DVD.
