      12 is Getting Better...Still Doesn't Click

      I've been a fan of the series off and on since I was 12. Watched the 4th and 5th Doctors on PBS, and even caught the occasional 1 and 2 series there. Been watching since the 2005 reboot and have liked each of the actors in the role and thought I would like Capaldi as well...I have had a hard time enjoying his character, and it isn't his fault. his acting is good, but I feel the writing has not given him a chance. After a rough season/series 8 the 9th season is an improvement. Less focused on Clara and more on the Doctor...this helps the version of the character grow some. But it still falls into the current Moffit trend of trying to build a giant puzzle out of the season...easter eggs like the words Bad Wolf or Vote Saxon in earlier seasons were fun when they paid off, but Moffit tries to make the audience feel dumb for missing the clues. Fingers crossed season 11 with a new crew writing and directing will breath new life into the show.

      9th Series continues to improve

      When people want to start watching Doctor Who and ask where to begin, I always tell them "It doesn't matter. You'll be lost regardless of where you start. Just go with it." I started watching Doctor Who with the reboot and was completely lost, but immediately became a fan. Each new Doctor takes some getting used to, but they've all grown on me until Capaldi. I wasn't all that impressed with him in series 8 and was kind of hoping he might be another one-season Doctor. Series 9 has made me a believer though! Things start out with a bang, and it's nice to see the interaction between the Doctor and Missy. Clara is coming along nicely; I far preferred her intro as "Souffle Girl" to the kind-of whiny character in Series 8. However in Series 9 she develops into the kind of companion we expect and that is nice to see. As a disclaimer, I haven't seen the final episodes yet but am looking forward to them.

      As a long time fan of the series, both old and new, I would say that the 9th series is an improvement upon the prior season. Moffat has a leaning toward plot over character, and so, a series full of 2-parters lets his storytelling shine better than in prior seasons. That said, no series is perfect, and there are a few clunkers this season. But, it is overall an improvement in quality. The set itself is an improvement as well, with more special features and commentaries than the previous series sets. It also contains 2 holiday specials given the timing of the series and how long we will have to wait for the next series to air. Overall, an improvement all around.

      Solid Release

      The reason I didn't rate this higher is that there's one feature I prefer to have that this set lacks: play resume. If you stop playback at any time for any reason, the disc starts from the very beginning the next time you press play. Most Blu-Ray releases will resume play at the point where you left off, but this one won't. Had I known that ahead of time, I wouldn't have purchased this set. Aside from that, this is a good, solid release. If you don't mind starting over every time press play, this is a good buy.

      The 12th Doctor at his Best

      This season of the 12th Doctor's is vastly improved and overcame the uneven tone of his first season. The biggest change in this series is the number of two part stories that still exist into an overall arc of events. Even more impressive is Capaldi's solo performance in an episode that makes "Groundhog Day" look like a walk in the park. Also an added bonus is the closure to the River Song story line in "The Husbands of River Song."

      GREAT SCI-FI BUT HIGH PRICED

      Doctor Who has become quality TV show over the last 9 Series' that started mediocre at first #I have no basis on Doctor Who before 2005 reboot#, but price is very high for only 12 episodes and making-of docs on each storyline #most episodes are two part storylines#. British shows have much smaller seasons #called "series" in British lingo#. Before buying, watch a few episodes on BBC America as British shows are different than shows in America in style and language.

      A must have for any Doctor Who fan.

      Doctor Who fans have to shell out big bucks for these sets, but at least this time they included an entire 12 episode season and 2 Christmas Specials. Throw in a ton of bonus features and the fact that this set shows the end of Companion Clara's run on the series (the longest for any Companion so far) and you have a must have set. I recommend it to all.

      Its hardwired structure that requires major change every so often is one of the main reasons Doctor Who is thriving 50+ years after it debuted. As someone who started watching back when Tom Baker was The Doctor, I can safely say that this season/series has one of the best episodes of the entire run of the show: Heaven Sent. Yes, it's that good.
