Even though we are still a couple weeks away from the airing of Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol (coming to BBC (6pm) and BBC America (9pm) on the 25th of December), we already have a release date for the special on Blu-ray and DVD.
Just in time for Gallifrey 22, the special is slated for release on the 15th of February. So much for giving it as a Valentine's Day gift. Along with the special, the accompanying 'Doctor Who: Confidential' on it and 'Doctor Who at the Proms 2010' will be included as bonus material.
We can also assume that the special will be available on iTunes the day after it is shown on BBC America, so figure on it being there on Boxing Day.
The BBC Press Office released more information about the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special for 2010, titled, A Christmas Carol. The special will be transmitted on the BBC and BBC America on Christmas Day.
There are a bunch of articles I've been meaning to write since last week, unfortunately I have been fighting off a nasty bug I probably picked up at our anniversary event a week ago. And no, that would not be 'Bug' as in Pete's nickname who was there.
With that said, this may be old news, but only if you haven't seen it already. Below is a publicity photo for the upcoming 2010 Doctor Who Christmas special, A Christmas Carol that the BBC released recently.
@BBCAmerica had tweeted a slightly alternate version here.

The End of Time comes to BBC America tonight, well part 1 of it at least. Will it top the best figures BBC America received last week with the airing The Waters of Mars special? Time will tell. 1.1 million viewers turned into BBC America (of those that can receive it of course) to see The Waters of Mars making it the highest rated show ever on BBC America.
Tonight at 9pm (EST), Doctor Who returns to the cable/satellite channel with The End of Time, Part 1. Here's a taste of the episode below.
Paul Cornell has a series on his blog, The 12 Blogs of Christmas this holiday season.
In the latest entry, The 12 Blogs of Christmas: Eleven. Millennium Eve he features some of his fellow Doctor Who folk… included are Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat, Gary Russell, Murray Gold, James Moran, Noel Clarke, even a familiar name from Doctor Who: Podshock is there too.
In it, we are recounting what we were doing ten years ago as we rang in the new millennium.
Actually, it is quite humbling to be sharing such company on the same page. I thank Paul, he is a lovely person and friend. As I said in my piece included in Paul's blog, take nothing for granted.
BBC America has new trailer for Doctor Who: End of Time, Part One and the next David Tennant interview. Plus some new wallpapers from the specials! Happy Holidays from BBC America!
End of Time, Part One Trailer:
