Doctor Who Season 9 Posted by: from: on Chris Eccleston's turn as the Doctor is often overlooked, but is really worth a view just to see how far the series has come. I personally am a fan of this season and recommend it to everyone starting out with Doctor Who. Although, most people who watch it have already seen this season. It's just great to finally have it on Blu-Ray without having to buy the really expensive box set. I do hope that they continue to release the other seasons like Tennant's run. It would be nice if they did it with the previous Doctors as well.

At long last! Posted by: from: seattle on Been waiting a long time for Series 1-4 to be released individually on blu-ray! Not much into the "Ninth" Doctor, but still wanted this set. Okay transfer (weren't filmed in HD), but still a tad better looking then DVD. Really looking forward to the "Tenth" Doctor (David Tennant), which will be released on August 23!!!! Bring it on!!

A welcome launch of the newer episodes now in HD Posted by: from: on Newly available in HD, this is an upconversion because the first four series of the newer run were shot in standard definition. This is the relaunch of the series, also known as NuWho, bringing new audiences to the fold. It picks up after the long hiatus from the last new episode from 1996, continuing the mythos, but it stands alone for viewers who are unfamiliar with the show's history from 1963. Christopher Eccelston is an underrated Doctor, and fans have these episodes to thank for the starting point of Doctor Who becoming a worldwide phenomenon.

Nice set for fans Posted by: from: on As someone who only just recently got into Doctor Who, I was happy to see this season on Blu-ray. Since it was filmed in SD, it has been upscaled to HD for this release; the picture quality is easily superior to that of the DVD release, and the audio has most definitely benefited from the jump from the DVD's Dolby Digital track to the Blu-ray's DTS-MasterHD track. I look forward to seeing series 2-4 released on Blu-ray sometime in the future. I know there are fans who gripe that since this season and also series 2-4 was filmed in SD that it doesn't need a Blu-ray release, but I disagree solely for the fact of the jump in audio quality (going from lossy DVD audio to uncompressed Blu-ray audio) and also for the inclusion of the original DVD bonus features as well. That being said, Christopher Eccelston is my least favorite doctor, so I was very happy to pick this season up for only $35. I don't think it's worth the full price of $67 due to the fact of it being upscaled picture and no new bonus material, but if you see it on sale it's definitely worth picking up and adding to, or starting, your Doctor Who Blu-ray collection.

Series 1 now on blu-ray Posted by: from: on The first seriesof the new Doctor Who series is now available as an individual release where it was only available as a pricey box set of series 1-7. This isn't true blu-ray as this is an upconversion since series 1-4 weren't shot in HD, but it still looks great! Starring Christopher Eccleston as the Doctor.

Great return of a Classic* Posted by: from: Raleigh, NC on Doctor Who fans a probably already aware of the show, but it's worth pointing out that the * is for the picture quality. In case you weren't aware, the first four series (all of Eccleston and most of Tennant) were filmed in standard definition. The Blu-Rays for series 1-4 are up-converted standard definition, and accordingly won't look as good as later series. Series 1 is still a step up from the DVD set, but if you're expecting a mind-blowing upgrade, it might be important to keep your expectations in check. It's likely to look as good as it's ever going to.

Fantastic Posted by: from: on I had recently read that, since the transfer was from a standard definition source, the Blu-ray wouldn't be, in fact couldn't be, much better. Well, they need to look again. I put the Blu-ray into my Sony Blu-ray dvd player and wow, fantastic definition and color. Lets hope they do this for the David Tennant years as well. I highly recommend all 'Whovians" purchase this, you won't regret it one bit.
