So, basically, this set collects Doctor Who Series 5, Series 6, Series 7, the Christmas specials for 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and "The Day of the Doctor" 50th Anniversary special, all in 1080p High Definition. Also included is "An Adventure in Time and Space," the TV movie retelling the creation of Doctor Who which aired during the 50th Anniversary and contains a cameo by Matt Smith.
Most of these discs were also available for sale individually (the solo release of "An Adventure in Time and Space" included a DVD copy and a DVD of the first Doctor Who serial, neither of which is in this set), but there's also a set-exclusive bonus disc featuring Matt Smith's guest star story on Doctor Who spinoff "The Sarah Jane Adventures," the 2013 Doctor Who Proms concert, a new feature for "The Day of the Doctor," "Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide" (for anyone who might be new to Doctor Who getting this set), and "The Five(ish) Doctors Reboot": a half hour comedy for the 50th Anniversary featuring former Doctors Peter Davison, Colin Baker, and Sylvester McCoy, as well as cameos by many others, including John Barrowman, Paul McGann, and Matt Smith.
For any US-based Doctor Who collector, this can either replace or relieve you of needing to buy the above sets, neatly filling in your collection. However, there was a 50th Anniversary collector's set released in the UK which features a few bonus features not included here. To me, chiefest among these were the cinematic openings for The Day of the Doctor, which audiences who went to see the special in theaters saw before the special started, and "The Science of Doctor Who," with scientist Brian Cox explaining many of the scientific theories suggested by Doctor Who. What makes this specific loss so grievous is that Matt Smith appears in the special, as it was framed by Brian Cox actually entering the TARDIS and talking with the Doctor. The other loss is the minor but still would have been nice addition of deleted scenes for The Day of the Doctor. Rights issues probably would not have been too difficult to sort out and any fan of Doctor Who who would be purchasing this set would be interested in seeing those at least once.
Overall, if you don't have any of Matt Smith's tenure as the Doctor in your collection, this is a nice way to get it on Blu-Ray. (I only owned Series 5 on DVD.) If you already bought them before the set was announced, then you have to decide if you might want to sell your copies and get this for the bonus disc or get this as well.
It has EVERYTHING. Obviously series 5, 6, and 7, but also all of the confidentials, the specials, prequels to some episodes. commentary, An Adventure in Space and Time, The Five-Ish Doctors Reboot, The Night of the Doctor (8th Doctor's regeneration), two episodes of Sarah Jane's television series - even Matt Smith on "The Nerdist!" It's the ultimate set.
The packaging is wonderful. The DVD book that comes out of the case looks like a piece of the TARDIS, all worn, covered in Galifreyian. Each DVD fits snug and has wonderful pictures on each page.
Also, Blu-ray. This is my first Blu-ray, so I might not be the best to comment on the quality (I literally just bought a blu-ray player and then saw this on sale). It looks gorgeous, though!
I am a kid at Christmas with this set. I love it!
Great special features. The packaging is awkward, but OK.
