As we count the minutes until the Doctor Who finale airs tomorrow night on BBC America and on Space in Canada, it’s a good time to take stock of what goodies will be in Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series. As promised, the set includes Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol and its accompanying Doctor Who Confidential. Sadly, we weren’t able to include the Doctor Who at the Proms concert from the Christmas Carol single, but the disc will have the much-desired “Space” and “Time” Comic Relief sketches for last March’s Red Nose Day. Audio commentaries are available on “The Impossible Astronaut,” “The Rebel Flesh,” “A Good Man Goes to War,” “The Wedding of River Song,” and best of all, Neil Gaiman recorded commentary on “The Doctor’s Wife” when he was in London for his Neverwhere commentary sessions. Along with prequels, Monster Files and the customary disc devoted to Doctor Who Confidential, there are five newly filmed scenes called “Night and the Doctor” that are exclusive to Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series, and even an exclusive Doctor Who Confidential on filming these scenes. (We were sad to hear this week that Doctor Who Confidential was being cancelled following Series Six. Everyone who relied on this series’ unique behind-the-scenes access will feel its loss.) Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series will release on November 22nd, but can be pre-ordered now. Also coming in time for the holidays are two new Doctor Who ornaments, the TARDIS glass ornament, and the festive red Dalek glass ornament.
Supernatural fan alert: Bedlam (in which the hippest address in London is a renovated insane asylum teeming with the malevolent spirits) premieres tomorrow night after Doctor Who on both BBC America and Space.
