As for the originals showing up on Blu, they are planned as part of The Collection which is presenting cleaned up upscales of the original video (or filmed backups). The sixties era will be coming later in the collection (probably four or more years from now) due to several stories being missing and no definite decision on how to represent them (animations or slideshows using the original audio).
Its highly unlikely that the 60s Doctor Who stories ever to come to blu considering the surviving copies only exist in kiniscopes of quality ranging from the actual master tape (several late episodes were screened from 35mm due to editing expenses) to smeary messes. And on top of that, the bulk of them were originally shot in the EMI-Marconi system which was technically inferior even to NTSC (377i50p!) so they looked lousy even on transmission.
