  • Nice Collection, but...

    I enjoyed the first three again, fun to see Geoffrey Palmer from As Time Goes By & Clive Swift from Keeping Up Appearances. I had not seen The Next Doctor and it took me a moment to recognize Dervla Kirwa from Ballykissangel, great episode, lots of fun. BIG Question: When can we purchase Planet of the Dead that aired back in April or any of the other NEW episodes? And don't even get me started on the wait for new Torchwood!

    Title sums it up: But the reason for POTD is not on it, is because it hasn't been shown in the states yet. Ugh! But yup :)

    I'm surprised they released these specials wait until they release the 09 specials when they're done making them
  • Why No Hi-Def "Planet of the Dead"?

    By tgksr
    Since BBCA widely touted "Planet of the Dead" as the first hi-def "Doctor Who" to be broadcast in the States, should it not be made available as such on iTunes? After all, "Torchwood: Children of Earth" (a GREAT miniseries, BTW) is available in HD. That aside, it is nice to see that Michelle Ryan has recovered from the disaster that was "Bionic Woman."
  • Fun collection: Not for Completionists

    See. Completionists shoud already own Seasons 2,3 and 4 which already include the Christmas Special as episode 1 of the series. The only thing that is exclusive to this set is The Next Doctor.
  • Waste of an Hour

    I wasted an hour on Runaway Bride today. I don't like Donna as a companion. So that already put me off. But then I became annoyed at how heavy handed the same notes were being played for another session. White woman & black guy...again. Black guy a bit of an arse...again. Lingering shot on the homosexual couple...again...Christmas traditions given awful associations to make children frightened of what should bring joy...again. I just find the agenda of tweaking the nose of traditionalists & conservatives tiresome now. The Doctor Who showrunners & writers have beaten the "I'm being naughty" drum too loudly and too often and have made me sick. Add to that the over-the-top acting for the racnoss and you have...Well, the waste of an hour.

    The first 3 episodes of this set can be found in Seasons 2, 3, and 4, making this set a waste. If you have the above seasons, I recommend only purchasing "The next Doctor."

  • The Best

    By Digsdrwho
    I am a late Whovian but better late than never. I am 69 and was introduced to the series 5 years ago and Doctor Who is the best that television offers by far. It is extremely exciting, and I love the moral part of the Doctor! Too bad there are not more like this. Please don't give up on the series, I need my Doctor daily. I TEVO the episodes so I can watch them over and over. So glad to see this on TV!!!

    Holy cow doctor who is the best show ever freakin invented! So true. Come on who doesn't like comedy, romance, action, and pretty much every other theme there is? Been luvin it since 2009 and always will no matter what. P.S wear a fez and eat a banana!
  • Why Time Crash is Missing

    By Shadowsgirl
    Because it wasn't a David Tennant Special. It was a Children in Need Special and like all of those was a sort of minisode. In this case it was a 15 minute lead-in to Voyage of the Damned which was the FULL LENGTH CHRISTMAS Special. That's why. PS THE WATERS OF MARS won't even AIR in the UK until NOVEMBER so don't expect to find it here BEFORE then, okay?

    HUGE disappointment. I'm a great fan of Doctor Who and David Tennant, and this one is awful. Simple, boring storyline. "Romantic interest"/temporary companion is uninteresting. Tennant himself seems like a parody of himself. Skip it.
