5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Newbies July 11, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While I can understand and relate to many reviewers stating that this is "Nothing New" or that it's all "light-talking with an episode stuck on the end", there needs to be a very relevant point made about this product, DOCTOR WHO: THE DOCTORS REVISITED is NOT for long-time Doctor Who fans. It's not made for me (35 years of viewing) or any of you who have stuck around for similar timeframes. This is for people who have either (a) heard of but never seen Doctor Who, (b) seen modern Who but know nothing about classic Who, or (c) for people who have never heard nor seen of this show in the last 50 years. It doesn't offer anything new for those of us that have been with the show, because it's not supposed to. It's designed to introduce Doctor Who's history to the modern audience. And for that, it performs admirably.

I pre-purchased this after having seen a couple of the BBCAmerica episodes. The plan is to send it to a dear friend who loves modern Who, but has seen absolutely ZERO of the Classic era. Instead of having to wade in hip-deep on Netlflix or pay $40+ to try out a Classic ep, this allows the new viewer to get a grip on Classic Who and its many eras and details via friendly modern faces (Steven Moffat, David Tennant, etc.)

Fanboys and Fangirls, this isn't for you! :) This is for your friend that asks the 50-year-old question that brings a smile to your face: "Doctor......who??"

Get it for them. It will be a great Stocking Stuffer for the Whovians you love. :)

Format:DVD
2013 is the 50th Anniversary of "Doctor Who". In this 4-disc DVD set, each Doctor has a celebratory documentary/Special looking back on his tenure. There are interviews, photos and clips from various series. Each special is followed by a favorite series for that Doctor, including a special introduction by Steven Moffat (current Dr. Who Showrunner and Lead Writer).

Fans like me, who have been purchasing each series as it comes out on DVD, will probably not need to buy this DVD set. (Though I did watch all the specials on TV.) But if you are wondering just what all the excitement is about, this will be a good introduction to the first four of the Classic Doctor Who's.

1st DOCTOR - WILLIAM HARTNELL (1963-1966)
Commentators: Steven Moffat, David Tennant (10th doctor), Neil Gaiman (writer, wrote "The Doctor's Wife" series), William Russell (plays Ian, one of the first companions), Caroline Skinner (executive producer), Peter Purves (plays Steve Taylor, in Hartnell's 2nd group of companions) and John Barrowman (plays Captain Jack Harkness in "Dr. Who" and "Torchwood").

The Daleks are the 1st aliens Doctor Who encounters. It isn't until their 2nd appearance, however, that they invade Earth, and the Doctor goes proactive in protecting Earth. Tennant points out: The Daleks "became almost bigger than the show that spawned them. ... Brilliant design [on a] ridiculously small budget."

But the series picked to showcase the first Doctor has no alien opponent. It is one of the historical series, where Doctor Who visits different time periods on Earth. The special is followed by the series, "The Aztecs" (1964), four episodes of 25 minutes each:
The TARDIS lands in the tomb of an Aztec priest. On her own, Barbara goes through a door, which closes behind her.

5.0 out of 5 stars For What It Is, Not What It Isn't July 30, 2013
Format:DVD
Many of the reviews currently shown for this product are complaints about what is NOT on this set, criticisms of the stories selected for each Doctor, and general criticism about the nature of the specials themselves stating that they aren't the be all/end all documentary for each Doctor. I wanted to write a review of what the set actually is, not what it isn't.

There are hours and hours of documentaries on the older Warner Brothers/2 Entertain DVDs that we die-hard Whovians have been buying for well over a decade. For at least the last five years, almost every story released on DVD has been given a lengthy making-of documentary and a retrospective feature with all the surviving cast and/or crew. This product is of its time, meaning that it's a look back on 50 years of Doctor Who by the people who are currently involved in the future of the show. It's designed for new fans to get a taste of what has come before and give them a jumping-off point for which to pursue each previous Doctor. This is not for the people who bought a DVD of The Five Doctors in 2001, it's for people who have never heard of The Five Doctors so that they can get a taste of Doctor Who outside of Matt Smith.

And I like the choices of episodes shown here. Pyramids of Mars, for instance, was the Tom Baker story that hooked me on his Doctor decades ago when I first saw it. There are certainly more important stories out there starring Tom Baker's Doctor, but it's a fine story that comes from the most well regarded period, being producer Philip Hinchliffe's tenure. It's eerie and gothic, but filled with the science fiction elements that are a hallmark of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick comment about episodes July 30, 2013
Format:DVD
A lot of people noticed that the aired version of the episodes was adjusted to fit the aspect ratio of the specials.
On the disks the feature length versions are the same ones that aired.

But the original episodes are also on the disk with the original aspect ratio and length of episodes (ie-4 half hour episodes instead of the 2 hour versions aired recently)

Hope this helps
