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! =)
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!
From TVSHOWSONDVD website...
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.
I can't say that about the storylines though. I can see why the new series has garnered more popularity than the old. The effects are bigger and the sets more interesting. It's a shame the story line suffers. I am actually getting tired of seeing extinguished races such as the Daleks return time and time again. I also preferred the series before it became a love story.
The Doctor has always cared for his companions, but in the old series he never asked them up to his flat to look at his etchings.

My son loves this. Perfect for the Dr Who fan in your life -- just a pity it can be so hard to get (took me over 3 months to find it at a reasonable price).Published 14 months ago by JanS
I read the bad reviews stating that many of the DVDs were defective. I assumed that this production problem would have been quickly fixed by any competent company. I assumed wrong. Read morePublished on November 5, 2013 by Dr. Dan

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