I just received my Doctor Who: The David Tennant Years. I was ecstatic because it's beautiful. It looks like a book, and when you open it there are gorgeous graphics and a fantastic quote at the beginning. (The "Fire and Ice" quote). Then I saw how the DVDs are packaged. It's a slot at the top (see picture) that is cardboard on each side and very tight. I very carefully pulled each disc out, one by one to inspect them. The first few were fine, but as you go further, the discs become harder and harder to get out. At first it was only a tiny scratch, but when I got to the last disc (one of the cartoons), it practically gouged the disc. I was pulling them out with the utmost care, gently trying to get the slots as wide and loose as possible before moving the disc, but my efforts were in vain. It is terrible packing. Whomever designed it gets a huge fail. What a shame. I was so incredibly excited about it, and the rest of it is gorgeous. Will be sending it back tomorrow. Disappointing. David Tennant's Doctor deserves better.

Decided to get another set and try my hand at getting all of the discs out, then stretching out the pouches with a disc I don't care about. Will report on my findings. I REALLY want to keep this set!

Double Update All the Way:
Decided to just get a refund on it. I'm so disappointed. For $100, I don't want to have to put the discs in other cases and worry about losing them. I just want common sense packaging. I'll just keep Netflixing the episodes until the box sets drop in price or they fix this packaging problem.

I just received my set and at first was very impressed. This set has everything I wanted from David Tennant's run as the Doctor and for a lot less than buying the individual seasons thanks to Amazon's pre-order pricing guarantee.

The book presentation is very attractive and the artwork (primarily stills from the series) is nicely laid out. But as I went through the set, my excitement faded with each turn of the page. The discs are very difficult to remove from the sleeves (one won't come out at all) and many of the discs are scratched. Two of the discs won't play at all, which means I have a 26-disc set that's missing three discs in total. That's unacceptable.

I'm exchanging the set for a new one and hope that the replacement will be in much better condition than my original. If it isn't, I will return it for a full refund.

After just receiving my set in the post, I've come to the following conclusion - do yourself a favor, prevent stress, and purchase the David Tennant years in their respective individual series sets. I realize you will be forking over more money, but I imagine it's worth it in the end.

Don't get me wrong, the packaging is absolutely gorgeous, inside and out. There are plenty of fantastic portraits and photographs within that showcase pivotal moments throughout the tenth Doctor's run. But the execution behind the structuring of the set is just awful, for lack of a better word. I can't imagine what the creators were thinking when putting this together.

The discs are nearly impossible to remove from their cardboard slots. And once you actually manage, they either get smudged or scratched as you force them out. It's even more difficult putting them back into the slot. And judging from two other reviews, I'm not the only one whose complained about this.

I really wanted to love this collection, I really did. And everything about it is wonderful, that one massive problem aside.

I'll be returning it first thing tomorrow and purchasing series two through four individually.

The show itself: 10/10. I don't see any point in going into the actual mythology behind Doctor Who, as a majority of the people who read this will already know everything there really is to. What can I say? It's pure sci-fi at its best.

The set: 5/10, for the reasons stated above. Images and art are wonderful. Structurally, the ball was dropped.

Here it is, barely 2/3 of (as of Sept 2012) "New Who," all in one, "box." But back to the infamous packaging later.

I've watched all of the original "Dr Who" (1963-89) series (okay, "most," since some '60s stories are missing), and the 1996 movie and the 2005/ Eccleston opener series, so comparisons are inevitable. The original series was always struggling with a low budget -- sometimes it really showed, but sometimes the creators made some fabulous efforts with what they had at the time. "Who" could also have a kind of camp sensibility about itself, only encouraged by the low budget and performers like Patrick Troughton and Tom Baker. Despite being a time travel show, the "historicals" (visits to Earth's past) mostly stopped after the first Doctor (Wlm. Hartnell), concentrating on SF space adventures instead.

By comparison, the new Who seems to have the opposite problems sometimes. Nowadays the show is a little spoiled with visual effects, obsessed w/constant action; filled with wall2wall musical scoring sometimes (and already recycling certain action cues). Still, the writers occasionally overcome this and deliver some really good stories. While Tennant's performance can be a bit spastic at times, he's pretty much got every previously established aspect of the Doctor spot on. Yes, there are return visits from original series characters, but it's not the mindless continuity racket run by John Nathan-Turner in the 1980s.

"Who" has been through many changes over the years, but it's good to see that the Tennant years has done a decent job of reviving the Who tradition, albiet in a very different form, keeping and losing some of the many good aspects of the original run.

Oh, yes, the packaging.
