I came to like Doctor Who, despite my initial inclination to dislike it. I watched one episode - hmm, not bad. I saw 2 edisodes - damn, I'm starting to like this. By 3 episodes - I had a bad feeling I was going to end up buying the whole show. And I did. Worth it though. It is a fun, humerous show with adventure and drama thrown into the mix. Lots of drama. Did I mention the drama? Never boring, the only not really negative comment about the show I have to make is be prepared for tears. It seems like every episode is filled with tears. Rose's, the Doctors, side characters, you - everybody's crying. If you happen to get on a Doctor Who marathon after buying this (which I did) - be prepared to feel a bit bereft yourself when you finish this box set.
The look of the box set itself is fantastic. I have never seen so much work in a DVD collection. My only suggestion would be to get a case to hold the DVDs once you buy it. It looks nice and hold the DVDs securely, but sliding them in an out may end up scratching your discs.
A good buy. Can't wait to see how Matt Smith does in the other seasons.
