RT on DVD & Blu-Ray: Iron Man 3, Doctor Who, and More
We run down the most notable home video releases in film and television.

Now that the Rotten Tomatoes TV Zone is up and running, you can expect to see a lot more television showing up here, and it all begins this week with Iron Man 3, Room 237, Hannibal Season 1, and the complete seventh series of the BBC's Doctor Who, plus more.
