Doctor Who: Complete Series 1-7 Blu-ray Box Set Announced

It's been quite the week for Doctor Who merchandise. After the announcement of several new soundtracks and the Series 7 complete box set, a particularly major piece of merchandise has been announced.

BBC Home Entertainment have announced the release of a DVD giftset for Series 1-7 (presumably including David Tennant's final Specials), which also includes a Sonic Screwdriver remote control.

The artwork listed is for North America and the box set is only up for pre-order in North America, but it has been confirmed that there will be a UK version with slightly different content and cover art.

The full press release states:
For the first time ever, BBC Home Entertainment is collecting the complete new Doctor Who together on Blu-ray plus an amazing assortment of additional items including the totally unique Doctor Who Universal Remote Control Sonic Screwdriver and more! 
The collection includes Series 1-4, featuring Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston and Tenth Doctor David Tennant, making their Blu-ray debut in newly remastered versions at full 1080p resolution, plus Series 5-7 featuring Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, also on 1080p high definition Blu-ray. Catch up with the complete new Doctor Who in high definition just in time for the historic 50th Anniversary Special this fall.
The box set will be released this autumn, around the time of the release of the Series 7 box set in September.
