I am a new Whovian and to help me on my quest to catch up to where the series is now, I've decided to watch it on Amazon Prime since I've only seen the DVD's selling for about $80 per series (except the 1st one, which is always a lot cheaper). So,6 for a little more than the price of 2? And everything else it comes with? Yes, please!

I bought this item as a gift for my daughter. Upon arrival, we checked the discs. Several of them had deep scuffs and scratches. I returned the discs to Amazon and ordered them from Best Buy, thinking they would get an entirely different stock from the manufacturer. Again, they were damaged by deep scuffs and scratches. We returned that to our local Best Buy and the kind customer service person told us there was one left on their shelf and we we would open it before exchanging it. He opened it and, of course, the discs were damaged. I am sorry to say that if you are buying this as a gift, be prepared to return it. It is an excellent price for such a great series--what a disappointment that we couldn't purchase an undamaged set.

I love watching Doctor Who.

Wasn't a huge fan of Christopher Eccleston, not that I hated him either. David Tennant was awesome, quite possibly my favorite. But Matt Smith is starting to grow on me, so we'll see.

I do find it amusing, as one of the other reviews says... this HUGE set is great for someone who hasn't bought any DVDs already. If you have, you're bound to get some repeats.

So for the Whovian who hasn't bought any of them... why not buy ALL of them! =)

The set also includes a collectible 11th Doctor Sonic Screwdriver, 3 original art cards and the comic book, "Doctor Who at Comic Con." It's a Doctor Who dream come true.

BBC Home Entertainment has announced an incredible 6-season release of Doctor Who - Limited Edition Gift Set, covering the new 2005 program from Series 1 through Series 6 (and including the various specials as well, of course). This item is only going to be available in DVD format, so no Blu-ray release here (because, as passionate fans already know, the show was only produced on standard-definition videotape - which is completely incompatible with high-def resolutions - from "Rose" through to the 2008 Christmas Special, "The Next Doctor").

Cost of the 41-disc title is $249.99 SRP, and as the studio-provided description quoted above says, it will include a collectible Sonic Screwdriver in the style that the 11th Doctor (Matt "Bowties are Cool" Smith) uses, plus a comic book, three original art cards, and three Specials which are new-to-DVD. It's available on November 20th. Amazon has a listing for the title, but isn't taking pre-orders just yet. We don't have any further details than that for now, nor do we have any images of the packaging at this time other than the (somewhat blurry; sorry!) thumbnail picture at the right. Stay tuned for updates!

I received this order very quickly from Amazon. All of the discs were in perfect order, with no scratches. The packaging has every season in separate book forms, which makes them easy to store, and protects them from scratches.
This series contains all six seasons and also the Doctor Who Confidential episodes as well. They also have lots of extras, including commentaries, deleted scenes, and more.
The good points of ordering this set are: price (ordering the set is a lot cheaper than ordering them separately) and the extras. Each season (including the specials) comes with a booklet that lists all the information about each episode and the special features. As far as I know, the Limited Edition Gift Set is the only one to include a booklet for Season One. There is also 3 specials on a DVD just for this set(they are documentaries0. It also includes a comic book and the 11th Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, plus photo collages of Doctors 9-11. If you like the newer Doctors, this is a really good value.

I read the bad reviews stating that many of the DVDs were defective. I assumed that this production problem would have been quickly fixed by any competent company. I assumed wrong. About a third of the disks have a skip or are unplayable.

It was a gift for my daughter so I'm really, really unhappy!!!!!

Follow up - I returned it. Still waiting for my money back. Will order the separate Series DVDs.

This was our granddaughter's "expensive gift" for Christmas 2012 and was worth every penny! It arrived beautifully encased AND with a Sonic Screwdriver! Our 17 year old granddaughter is a huge David Tennant Doctor Who fan who was constantly borrowing our copies of the various seasons... now she has her own and couldn't be happier! If you have the opportunity to buy this item, TAKE IT! You won't be sorry!
