For those of you wondering, all of the specials are indeed included in this set. The Blu Rays for Series 2-7 independently contain the Christmas specials that preceded that season. If you'd like to go through the contents of each individual series, you can look them up here on Amazon and you will see that the specials are included in the sets.

To summarize: Every single episode of Who that has aired since 2005 will be on this set.

Quite simply put, this set is amazing. While $300 may seem like a high price for this set, the Sonic Screwdriver remote on it's own is $100. When you take that out, you're averaging just $25 per set, which, when considering the price for the individual seasons on DVD, is an amazing bargin.

And, yes this release has Series 1-7 and the Complete Specials (the five specials that marked the end of David Tennant's run as the Tenth Doctor). And if you're hesitant to get this release because you already have the previous releases of the 5-7 Series and/or the Complete Specials on Blu Ray, this set has new versions of those sets with full 1080p transfers (as opposed to the 1080i of the original Blu Rays). And the video quality of all of these discs is amazing. I was actually a bit shocked as to how good the upconversions on Series 1-4 are. They obviously took great care to make those first four series looked as perfect as they could on Blu Ray. And all bonus features from the DVD releases are included.

As for the bonus disc, the two specials included, which originally aired on BBC America, are nothing to write home about. But the inclusion of the complete "Doctor Who at the Proms" with DTS-HD 5.1 surround sound makes the bonus disc a must have, in my opinion.

Ok, my order from amazon arrived this afternoon. I was pretty excited to see how series 1-4, originally in SD, now upconverted to HD 1080p would look. I watched half of Ep 1, Rose on Blu ray, then on the original DVD release. It did look better, close ups look the best, detail in faces and hair is much better. Far away shots, not as impressive. I noticed that the small squares you get in the back grounds on the DVDs are gone on the Blu rays. Series 2 looks better then then series 1. Sharper, more HD looking. Once you get to series 3 & 4, the new remastered Blu rays really look pretty amazing for being from SD master. I think the extra 100 or so lines of SD pal resolution really helped bring these new Blu rays to life. Close up and far away shots on series 3 & 4 look pretty great. Series 3 & 4 look the best of the original 4 SD releases.

The sound, now 5.1, packs a lot more punch, on all series 1-7 now. Series 5 -7 were already on Blu ray, but now they are in 1080p and in 5.1. Series 5-7 now have fewer disc per series compared to the original Blu ray releases. I read that 1080p takes up less space, I hope that's correct.

The last Blu-ray Disc, the new special features disc is ok, It contains the Brit's list Doctor Who Ultimate list of lists, the best of the Christmas specials, & the full 90 minute Doctor Who at the Proms in 5.1 surround. I was hoping for more new stuff, but I am ok with what we got.

The box it came in is pretty big. I don't think I'll be storing the Blu rays and remote in it. Just the comic and doctor print.

The only thing missing, which is in the David Tennant box set is the 2 animated cartoons. If I find them, I'll update my review.

For Series 5-7 and most of the specials actually shot using HD cameras, it is what you expect - excellence. Great picture quality and audio quality.

Where it becomes less impressive is Series 1-4. Recorded on PAL SD video (576i) we all knew ahead of time that 1-4 series would only be upscaled, but that doesn't mean it had to be bad. After all, Farscape was mastered to PAL 576 and the Blu-ray upscale went very well. The big difference here is the upscale method used. Farscape benefited from a quality upscale that looked significantly better than the DVD in every scenario. Unfortunately, BBC decided to use a rather poor quality upscale algorithm for the Doctor that introduces many unwanted artifacts.

I don't want to be unfair. Generally speaking, some of the stationary shots and closeups look better than the DVD... it's just everything else that reminds me that it is SD, when the halos and aliasing stand out or a bad key during effects shots. This upscale is just simply not as good as Farscape, which is really unfortunate. If you've got a clean SD source of Series 1-4 that is free of artifacts, then you might just want to stick with those if you have a good upscaler or upscale technique to use.

On the list of pros, the DTS-HD MA track for Series 1-4 is more dynamic than the regular Dolby Digital track. There are times where the lossless track shines compared to the old lossy tracks, but unless you've got a fairly robust home audio system, you may not notice. If you crave the highest quality audio, then this is probably your only reason to purchase this set... until Series 1-4 are released individually.

As for the Sonic Screwdriver remote, I'm not going to review it.

Complete Series without sonic screwdriver please
It's like wanting some CrackerJacks without the prize inside. (half kidding!)

True HD for Series 1-4?
I'm interested to find out if the audio is better. The audio on the original DVD releases is terrible, and very difficult to hear anyone speaking above the music.

Tenth doctor's specials
The 2008-2010 Specials aren't considered part of a series because the exist between the void of Series 4 and 5, where RTD and Tennant left and Moffat and Smith took over. Technically from a production point of view it was a continuation of Series 4, with each episode billed as Episode 14, 15, 16,... Read More

Doctor Who Confidential
It would be the shortened versions. Except on the specials. Those where included at full length (Unless they remove them in the combo pack). Full version confidentals would need equal amount of discs. So each season/series would have to be 8 disc sets.

Alright, here is comes.
You'll understand it perfectly, even though it's a continuation of the original run of the show.

Everything you need to know about the show is explained in the opening episode, "Rose", and this includes things such as who the Doctor is, what he does and what the TARDIS is. The... Read More
