5.0 out of 5 stars It is all here!, August 7, 2013
This review is from: Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset (Blu-ray)
A special Blu-Ray high-definition box set of every episode and special since the 2005 Relaunch, up to The Name of the Doctor. This is a must have. The episodes in series 1-4 were originally shot at the UK's standard definition of the time, 576i, while everything from Planet of the Dead onwards was shot at 1080i. All are being converted up to 1080p for this gift set. Also included in the set is an Eleventh Doctor Sonic Screwdriver Remote Control for TVs and other home media equipment. That alone is $100.00. The on-disc contents should be identical to those for the previously-released complete season sets (apart from the definition increase, of course). Each season will come in its own case, with an outer box to contain them all in. The set may also contain a few other little souvenir nick-knacks.

The up-converted series 1 to 4 sets will also be made available to purchase on their own,
but likely not until the middle of 2014.

No, the show isn't shot on film, Series 1-4, they were shot as 'DJ PHILLY B?' has stated, digitally at Standard Definition 576i, with everything following 'Planet of the Dead' shot in 1080i HD, again digitally. No amount of film has every been used in Doctor Who since its revival, apart from model shots in Series One and the Series Seven episode 'Cold War'. If it was shot on film then The Next Doctor wouldn't have been upscaled in The Complete Specials set.

I keep reading people thinking it was shot on film and have no idea where they're getting that idea from.

That does not prove anything. It is well documented that the first four years was made in Standard Definition 576i.
