Additionally, mother and daughter Dame Diana Rigg (Game of Thrones, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) and Rachael Stirling (Tipping the Velvet) will appear on screen together for the first time.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but the set will feature the 2012 Christmas Special and all eight remaining Series Seven episodes, and supplements will include: Clara's White Christmas: Behind the Scenes of 'The Snowmen'; Prequel to' The Snowmen'; Prequel to 'The Bells of Saint John'; and 45-minute Special: The Companions.
