5.0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE Series. Capaldi and Coleman are amazing., June 22, 2014
This review is from: Doctor Who: Season 8 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Out of the 7 episodes that have aired, it's been amazing. Great stories, humor and characterization. Clara is fantastic this season with all the focus on developing her personality. The Doctor is definitely NOT Ten or Eleven. He's a jerk. It's a lot of fun to watch him and Clara squabble. I am sure he'll soften up a bit as the series ends, but it's nice to have a fresh take on the Doctor.

People are whining because he's too mean or because they inexplicably don't like Clara or the stories, but Whovians are some of the biggest complainers. Or is that just all fandoms? It's good, critics like it, and you should to.

As for the complaint that more attention is on Clara than the Doctor, I just don't care. Clara is a great character and the companion is meant to be the viewers' avatar. And how could anybody complain about the beautiful Jenna Coleman getting attention?

The only issue is that some of the stories have the usual "Doctor Who clunkiness" where the script stumbles a bit or the continuity and logic suffer, but it's still fun.

And that should be the point.

This set hasn't actually been announced yet. I suspect Amazon is just making this listing up and setting the price so high to avoid setting it too low and screwing themselves due to their pre-order price guarantee.

I agree that 90 bucks is crazy for the new season. Especially when Amazon UK is selling it for £39.75 region free which works out to be about 67.48 US Dollar at http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00I3JRCCO/ref=pe_738061_51726491_em_1p_0_ti and is set to ship on November 17,2014

Hopefully Amazon U.S. fixes the prices when they get a release date

Somehow I think that date is a mistake. How would the set come out in 4 months when the season doesn't even start for a month still. If they are airing with no breaks this would come out 2 days after the finale airs. No way.
