Received my boxset this morning and on the whole, it is a magnificent looking thing! However, what I assumed would be a solid outer keep case (a la the Star Wars BD set), is in fact a rather flimsy card and plastic window, which will undoubtedly be quite easily damaged. Especially when the access to the seperate cases inside the box is through a flap on top (a la cup a soups) as opposed to the much better sliding in from the side, used in practically EVERY OTHER boxset!

Quite who makes these baffling aesthetic decisions within the marketing department of the beeb or 2entertain, and why, is a mystery.

On the content side of things, without going into the worthiness of the individual episodes, everything is pretty much as expected. The episodes look fantastic in HD and it is a proper TREAT to have 'An Adventure' and 'The Five(ish) Doctors' in glorious 1080i too! A comprehensive selection of extras too barring one glaring omission, which I'll come to.

A couple of slight niggles : The Script to Screen Table Read is actually a 15 min featurette with only brief cuts to the actual table read. This disappoints the uber geek in me as I've seen a couple of FULL table reads of different shows and they are enormous fun.
: Strange to watch the Cinema introductions for Day of the Doctor talking about switching to 3D and not have the 3D version available.
: NO COMMENTARIES! This is the biggest niggle for me. The biggest episode in the show's recent history. The most high profile run of episodes in years and a magnificent one-off show dedicated to the birth of Doctor Who and not a commentary between them. A massive missed opportunity.

Anyway, still a great release, especially if you held off from buying all the stand-alone releases since last November.

In 2013, Doctor Who celebrated its fiftieth anniversary and also bid farewell to the eleventh doctor played terrifically by. Matt Smith. This 50th anniversary set features the series 7 finale 'The Name of the Doctor', the mini episode 'The Night of the Doctor', the 50th anniversary episode 'The Day of the Doctor' and the 2013 Christmas Special 'The Time of the Doctor' in Matt Smith's final full time appearance as The Doctor.

'The Name of the Doctor' marked the end of what I consider a very underrated series in series 7 (or 34 if you count the classics) and features a terrific cliffhanger that I definitely didn't see coming. Though Matt Smith is once again fantastic as The Doctor, for me the standout performance of the episode comes from Jenna Coleman as his companion Clara Oswald whose performance ranks her as one of the best and underrated companions in the shows history.

'The Night of the Doctor' is a mini episode which acts as a prequel to the 50th anniversary special featuring a surprise appearance from Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor and his regeneration into a until now unknown incarnation of The Doctor.

'The Day of the Doctor' had a lot of hype going into it due to it marking the 50th anniversary of the show and thankfully it delivered on every level with great performances from Matt Smith, David Tenant, Jenna Coleman, John Hurt and Billie Piper and many great references from the shows past.

'The Time of the Doctor' marked Matt Smith's final full time appearance as The Doctor and what a way to go out. This Christmas special ties up all the story lines throughout Matt Smith's time as The Doctor and features one of the best regenerations in the history of the show.

Format: Blu-ray
This review is strictly about the box set itself.

It is four Blu-Ray cases wide. The black bottom where the logo and its contents are is removable, as you can lift it out of the rest.
On the back of this is a number of the limited edition case. Also it has the Blu-Ray info, which is;

-Main Feature-
Video Format - High Definition 1080i/16:9
Audio - Engish DTS-HD MA 5.1
Subtitles - English for the Hard of Hearing
Length - 266 Mintues Approx
Disc Format - BD x 4
-Special Features-
Video Format - 1080i / 16:9 & Standard Definition
Audio Format - English DTS-HD MA 5.1/2.0
Subtitles - English for the Hard of Hearing
These special features on these discs are in High Definition.

On the back of the actual box itself, and not the black slip is a picture of all the Tardises in front of a burning planet, presumably Galifrey. When you take the black slip off underneath you'll see all of the Doctors looking up at the Tardises and planets, with their backs to us, except for Matt Smith who is looking straight at us.

The lid lifts up, and inside are four typical blu-ray cases, and their covers are what you can see in the main Amazon picture. You can switch these around to be the main cover of the box set at your own wish. On the back of each of these lists the contents of each disc, and also has pictures from each disc and its special features in a hexagon.

On the back of "Matt Smith" lists the contents of the disc. Which are;
Disc 01: The Name of the Doctor
Extras: Behind the Scenes, The Night of the Doctor, Doctor Who: The Ultimate Guide
Run Time: 44 minutes approx

On the back of "David Tennant" lists the contents of the disc.
