‘Doctor Who’ thing of the day: awesome extras on the first Matt Smith DVD set

Geoff Boucher at Hero Complex has the exclusive! OMG!

I just got word that the BBC is poised to announce that “Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series” will hit Blu-ray and DVD on November 9 and that it will contain a truly tantalizing extra: two newly filmed sequences, both written by Steven Moffat and available only in this collection.

They are called “Meanwhile, in the TARDIS … ” and, as that title suggests, they are drop-in moments that show what happens between the episodes — I suspect they’re the comedy mortar between the story bricks, and with Moffat’s wry sensibility and the daft charms of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, I’m guessing these interstitial escapades have a chance to be pretty entertaining.

That November 9th date is most likely for Region 1; the Region 2 date probably won’t be too much earlier than that, if at all.

Of course, you can already buy some of the Matt Smith debut season on Region 2 DVD, though these discs don’t have the “Meanwhile” material. Buy Volume 1 and Volume 2; preorder Volume 3 (out August 2) and Volume 4 (out September 6). These typically are pretty bare-bones: a couple of episodes and maybe one bonus, but not all the stuff that will eventually be on the complete season box set.

(If you stumble across a cool Doctor Who thing, feel free to email me with a link.)
