5.0 out of 5 stars It's bigger on the inside! October 10, 2012
I love watching Doctor Who.

Wasn't a huge fan of Christopher Eccleston, not that I hated him either. David Tennant was awesome, quite possibly my favorite. But Matt Smith is starting to grow on me, so we'll see.

I do find it amusing, as one of the other reviews says... this HUGE set is great for someone who hasn't bought any DVDs already. If you have, you're bound to get some repeats.

So for the Whovian who hasn't bought any of them... why not buy ALL of them! =)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Deal!! November 17, 2012
By Melkat
Verified Purchase
I am a new Whovian and to help me on my quest to catch up to where the series is now, I've decided to watch it on Amazon Prime since I've only seen the DVD's selling for about $80 per series (except the 1st one, which is always a lot cheaper). So,6 for a little more than the price of 2? And everything else it comes with? Yes, please!

BBC brings you the Doctor Who Limited Edition Gift Set just in time for the holiday season! This limited edition Doctor Who collector's box will be the ultimate holiday gift for Doctor Who fans!

The set also includes a collectible 11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver, 3 original art cards and the comic book, "Doctor Who at Comic Con." It's a Doctor Who dream come true.

BBC Home Entertainment has announced an incredible 6-season release of Doctor Who - Limited Edition Gift Set, covering the new 2005 program from Series 1 through Series 6 (and including the various specials as well, of course). This item is only going to be available in DVD format, so no Blu-ray release here (because, as passionate fans already know, the show was only produced on standard-definition videotape - which is completely incompatible with high-def resolutions - from "Rose" through to the 2008 Christmas Special, "The Next Doctor").

Cost of the 41-disc title is $249.99 SRP, and as the studio-provided description quoted above says, it will include a collectible Sonic Screwdriver in the style that the 11th Doctor (Matt "Bowties are Cool" Smith) uses, plus a comic book, three original art cards, and three Specials which are new-to-DVD. It's available on November 20th. Amazon has a listing for the title, but isn't taking pre-orders just yet. We don't have any further details than that for now, nor do we have any images of the packaging at this time other than the (somewhat blurry; sorry!) thumbnail picture at the right. Stay tuned for updates!

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged Discs December 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this item as a gift for my daughter. Upon arrival, we checked the discs. Several of them had deep scuffs and scratches. I returned the discs to Amazon and ordered them from Best Buy, thinking they would get an entirely different stock from the manufacturer. Again, they were damaged by deep scuffs and scratches. We returned that to our local Best Buy and the kind customer service person told us there was one left on their shelf and we we would open it before exchanging it. He opened it and, of course, the discs were damaged. I am sorry to say that if you are buying this as a gift, be prepared to return it. It is an excellent price for such a great series--what a disappointment that we couldn't purchase an undamaged set.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, Risky Product January 29, 2013
Verified Purchase
This review/rating is not a reflection of the show; the show is fantastic. I have purchased the Doctor Who: Limited Edition Gift Set twice, from two different retailers (the second being amazon). BOTH times I had to return it due to damaged discs. This set is a great value with a lot of cool stuff...however it's major risk buying it. Be prepared for heartache and frustration because you will likely have to return it. Get your stuff together BBC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value set June 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
I received this order very quickly from Amazon. All of the discs were in perfect order, with no scratches. The packaging has every season in separate book forms, which makes them easy to store, and protects them from scratches.
This series contains all six seasons and also the Doctor Who Confidential episodes as well. They also have lots of extras, including commentaries, deleted scenes, and more.
The good points of ordering this set are: price (ordering the set is a lot cheaper than ordering them separately) and the extras. Each season (including the specials) comes with a booklet that lists all the information about each episode and the special features. As far as I know, the Limited Edition Gift Set is the only one to include a booklet for Season One. There is also 3 specials on a DVD just for this set(they are documentaries0. It also includes a comic book and the 11th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, plus photo collages of Doctors 9-11. If you like the newer Doctors, this is a really good value.

3.0 out of 5 stars Damaged discs...could not play and had to return February 27, 2013
Verified Purchase
I love the show and was super excited to get the box set, but upon viewing, some discs would not play and others were odd colored/splotchy on the underside. I hope this item is re-released and available for future purchase after the manufacturer fixes it quality issues.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Be Better January 2, 2013
My mother bought this set for me. Okay. I had started watching the first series a few days later and the second disc was skipping scenes. After the disc finished playing I checked it to have found that there was one scratch on it. The same thing happened to the third disc. I did not check the others.

As I was watching the first disc of the second series with David Tennant I wondered if there were other people that had scratched discs. So I went online found one person and saw that they had checked the discs. So I did just that and found, not including the first series, that all the discs were fine aside from one in the third series. I was grateful that the rest of them were okay but was still disappointed that there was even ONE disc scratched.

I'm still keeping and watching the discs despite the fact that three discs are scratched but if anyone if thinking about buying this set for a loved one or whatnot, please keep in mind that there is a possibility that the discs might be damaged.

Blu-Ray Version?
I would also like a Blu-Ray edition, even if it's a mix of DVD (for non-HD seasons) and Blu Ray.
