Posted Tue Dec 20, 2011 at 12:00 PM PST by

The 2011 Christmas special of the sci-fi series will be traveling to Blu-ray in February.

In an early announcement to retailers, BBC/Warner will be releasing 'Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow, and the Wardrobe on the high-definition format on February 14.

It's Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home. He promises to repay her kindness – all she has to do is make a wish. Three years later, a devastated Madge escapes war-torn London with her two children for a dilapidated house in Dorset. She is crippled with grief at the news her husband has been lost over the channel, but determined to give Lily and Cyril the best Christmas ever. The Arwells are surprised to be greeted by a madcap caretaker whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry world. Here, Madge will learn how to be braver than she ever thought possible. And that wishes can come true...

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Doctor Who Confidential – An inside look at the 2010 Doctor Who Christmas Special; Doctor Who at the Proms – Concert performance of music from Doctor Who recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall during the BBC’s annual Proms concerts.
