The Complete 6th Series - I love visiting The Doctor (11/25/2011)

Summary of "The Complete 6th Series - I love visiting The Doctor":
I really enjoyed this season, almost as much as season 5 (which was absolutely brilliant). There were a few "OMG, what on Earth?!" moments this season, and I'm very happy no one spoiled them for me while the episodes were airing.

This show continues to amaze me with funny, touching, scary and exciting episodes. The music... ohhh... the music! I've said before that I like the music on the show, so I went out and bought all the scores for seasons 1-5, and the Christmas episode. In fact, I'm listening to them as I type this.

This is a pretty loaded set, containing a lot of interesting material. I still get bothered by the "Confidential" cutdowns, because I hate thinking that I'm missing something important (and I know I am!). The commentary tracks were fun to listen to, but I want them on every episode (I'm so greedy). I thought the "Night and the Doctor" segments were fun, and I enjoyed the "Episode Prequels," I just wish the BBC had given me the opportunity to play these using the "play all" feature on each disc.

I can't wait for season 7, though I know I'll have to. (read entire review)

Summary of "A Christmas Carol: 2010 Christmas Special - Merry Christmas!":
What a wonderful episode! Michael Gambon was perfect as "Kazran Sardick," the Ebenezer Scrooge-type character. I'm always amazed by the writing of Doctor Who episodes; a single episode can be funny, sad, and scary.

I'm not really a fan of single-episode releases, but I guess it makes sense with the Christmas episode given the timing. It's also a decent release, as BBC has included the complete "Confidential" episode, and the "Proms" concert, though the audio is severely lacking there. You could always hold out for the episode on a forthcoming season set, though I doubt you'll get all the bonus material that's on here. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete Specials - Allons-y, Doctor, allons-y":
Yes, I cried, and I'm sure many of you did too, or will once you see the final episodes. The last 5 episodes were good, and great, and probably featured some of the best moments in the series to date. I thought "The Waters of Mars" was excellent, not only for the story, but also for the character of The Doctor. "The End of Time" parts 1 and 2 were also great, and I liked how they handled the changing of the Doctors. I'm not sure how I feel about Matt Smith being the next Doctor, but then again, I felt the same way when David Tennant took over the role. I'll just have to wait and see. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Next Doctor: 2008 Christmas Special - Pretty good, not great":
I really hate these single-disc releases, but only because Doctor Who is so great that I want to watch more than one episode at a time. I thought this episode was fun, like all the Christmas specials in the past, though the DVD could use some beefing up. "Doctor Who at the Proms" is great, but there's absolutely no bonus material relating to the episode. No interviews with David Morrissey, or interviews of any kind, which is a real shame. I'd hate to see BBC release all these specials in one set with tons of bonus material because it'll annoy the fans that have bought these single-episode discs, but at the same time Doctor Who deserves more material than these single discs are providing.

Summary of "Planet of the Dead - Good episode, okay disc":
I'm not quite sure how I feel about separate releases for each of the specials. Sure, I'm happy I get to watch them earlier than if they just released a box set, but there's very little on this disc compared to a season set of the show. The Doctor Who Confidential is good, but there aren't any deleted scenes, commentary tracks, or other bonus material, and that's a bit disappointing. This is also released out of order, with the Christmas episode coming in September (the Christmas episode aired first). Luckily there won't be any continuity problems, so you can pick this up now and the Christmas episode later. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete 4th Series - I love this show!":
I freakin' love this show! It's such a wonderful mix of sci-fi and comedy, and the result is a show like no other. It can go from a moment of complete seriousness, to a moment that's so hilarious I'm laughing out loud. Without going into details regarding the season, it's the finest so far, and for so many reasons.

The DVD set is good; the extras are fabulous, but BBC needs to make some corrections to the audio, and provide a chapter after the opening of the show (that frustrates me to no end, and occurs on nearly all their sets).

Go out and buy this if you haven't already, it's worth the money. (read entire review)

Summary of "The Complete 2nd Series - It's the New New Doctor":
I'm so glad they fixed the horrible audio problem from season 1, but there are still a few things "wrong" with this set. I'd assume that most people watch bonus material after watching the episodes, especially if they haven't seen the show yet, but the "Children in Need" special should be watched before anything else on the disc. I thought the first episode of the season started off a bit strangely, but I blamed it on my poor memory of the final moments in season 1. I'm also extremely annoyed by the long menu transitions which can't be skipped. I like to put a disc in and have a split second between menus, not a whole animated sequence.

I really enjoyed Tennant as the new doctor; I like the style of humor he brings to the show - it's a bit different from the humor Eccleston had. I was able to introduce my girlfriend to "The Doctor," and I was quite happy when she enjoyed it and watched the entire season with me. Woohoo, a new Who convert! I loved this season, especially the two-part episodes, and I can't wait for the third season (which hasn't started airing yet) to be released on DVD. It would be a treat if we got season 3 on the HD formats next year. (read entire review)

The Complete 1st Series (USA Only) - Did someone call a Doctor? (6/29/2006)

Summary of "The Complete 1st Series (USA Only) - Did someone call a Doctor?":
The set is loaded with bonus material, but it's far from perfect. Frustrating menus, a brutal 5.1 mix, and some trimmed featurettes (and one that shouldn't be on there) drag the set down a bit. BBC releases always feel like they're 90% complete; a little rough around the edges.

I really enjoyed Eccleston as "The Doctor" but I'll keep my mind open to the new guy. I thought the new version of the show was just as fun and exciting as the older shows; they kept the cheese factor intact as well. I'll admit it took me a few episodes to get into the show, but I got sucked in during "The Unquiet Dead," and remained hooked until the final episode of the season. I enjoyed the double-length episodes, especially since I had no indication they would last longer than a regular episode (I like to be surprised).

I hope a little bit more attention is given to the second season of Doctor Who. (read entire review)
