I Live in the UK and bought a multi region blu-ray player just for this set (and the Matt Smith Era, now that this set has impressed me this much.
It's always sad to say goodbye to an actor who you feel has been so good in this role for years, and the Christmas special/regeneration story isn't this grand epic struggle, but a personal story of the Doctors Fears and Self-Loathing that will not only redeem him, but safe the life of someone very important to His time stream...
"The Complete Peter Capaldi Years" is a worthwhile purchase for fans of Doctor Who and Peter Capaldi.
(Note: The Disc Pages for the First 3 Discs of Series 8 are all there, at the time of writing this review, I have been watching series 8 Disc 2.)
Honestly, I prefer the format of the season sets, which fit on a shelf and are easier to, say, bring to a friend's house. I would have preferred this set to be a shelf-sized box containing the individual season sets, but for what it is, it is nicely executed. What you can't see in photos is that the cover has glossy highlights on all of the individual gears and portraits. Even though it's cardboard, it really has the look of some metallic show prop. Very nice.
As for the content, Peter Capaldi is my favorite Doctor (and yes, I've seen ALL of them). Characteristically for this show, it takes a while for the new era to find its footing—honestly, I feel like the first half of season 8 is pretty skip-worthy—but the episodes starting with Kill the Moon are absolutely on fire. Unfortunately, many people had stopped watching by that point, but I've won a few fans back by telling them to just start with Kill the Moon.
One gripe (not really)—this set purports to contain every single Capaldi episode (even including the season 3 episode where Capaldi guest-starred in a non-Doctor role!), but if they were being SUPER generous, they would also have included the special The Day of the Doctor, in which Capaldi's "attack eyebrows" made a one-second-long appearance. They even mention it on the box copy! Oh, well.
BUT technically Capaldi’s first appearance as the Doctor was a cameo in the David Tennant / Matt Smith crossover “The Day of the Doctor” which is not included here.
Nor did they include the 3D bluray version of Dark Water / Death in Heaven.
These two omissions are the only problem I have with an amazing series and an amazing box set.
I was a bit disappointed that I paid $116.88 when I pre ordered it but just a week after release it’s down to $79.99 still, a great set though
