This close to the freeze for the Stretch release, I'd think it is

There's 1.7 from jessie or 1.8 from jessie-backports.


Just install and use apt-mark hold to keep at that version. You could
also create a local apt repository which has 1.8 instead of 1.10 using
tools like reprepro. I routinely script things like that for specific
test operations - echo the apt source at a new file 'django.list'
in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/, update, install run apt-mark and optionally
remove the apt source.
