Doctor Who: The Complete Eleventh Series, now available on Blu-ray, introduced Jodie Whittaker as the series’ 13th Doctor, and the first female lead for the long-running sci-fi show. New and returning fans alike will find a lot to love in Whittaker’s performance and the many and varied stories this new cast of characters tackles throughout the season. Also starring Bradley Walsh (Coronation Street), Tosin Cole (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Mandip Gill (The Flood), Doctor Who carries on the proud tradition of the series in the 11th run, a perfect addition to your home video collection.

The three-disc set includes all 10 episodes from the recent series, with “The Woman Who Fell to Earth” kicking things off and ending with “The Battle of Ranskoor Av Kolos.” Sharp-eyed fans will note that the series release does not include either the lead-in episode/Christmas special “Twice Upon a Time”, which features Peter Capaldi‘s last hurrah as the Doctor, nor does it include “Resolution”, 2019’s New Year’s special. The Blu-ray set boasts a ton of bonus content, however, most of which can be found in the curated episode commentaries; more content can be found throughout the three-disc collection in the form of featurettes and fun behind-the-scenes peeks with the cast and crew. The episodes themselves are absolutely worth a watch (and rewatch), while the bonus content makes the Series 11 Blu-ray an easy buy for fans of the series.
