A release date of 8/13/2013 has been announced:
http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Doc...pearhead/18785
New York; July 31, 2013 - On August 13, 2013, leading up to the highly anticipated Doctor Who 50th Anniversary, BBC Home Entertainment is celebrating another landmark: the first classic Doctor Who story ever to be released on Blu-Ray. Doctor Who: Spearhead From Space achieved many firsts long before its high definition debut: it was the first story of Jon Pertwee's tenure as the Third Doctor, was the first Doctor Who story to be presented in color, and the first to be shot entirely on film. Now it's making history once again as the first classic Doctor Who Blu-ray, made possible by scanning in the original film elements to create a stunning, true high definition picture.

As punishment for breaking the laws of time, the Time Lords have forced the Doctor to change his appearance, taken away his ability to time travel, and exiled him to Earth. But newly regenerated Third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) isn't the only alien to have arrived, as a swarm of meteorites have crashed into the sleepy English countryside, bringing with them a terrible new threat to mankind: the Nestene consciousness, a disembodied alien intelligence with an affinity for plastic. The Doctor and his newly appointed scientific advisor, Liz Shaw (Caroline John), join UNIT in a race against time to stop humanity from being replaced by a terrifying plastic facsimile race.

Blu-ray Bonus Features Include:
  • A Dandy and a Clown, an exclusive profile of Jon Pertwee
  • Carry On: The Life of Caroline John, a tribute to the actress who played companion Liz Shaw
  • Title Sequence Material
  • Restoration Comparison, a featurette that looks at the restoration process for this version and compares the results with previous versions

FYI - They aren't transferring over any of the special features from the recent Special Edition like they originally promised. If you want everything regarding Spearhead, you need to buy both the 2-Disc DVD and the Blu-Ray.

Lame, but not surprising.
