I'm not quite sure what all the complaints are about. I received this box set for Christmas and had been quite concerned after reading comments on here about scratched discs and missing episodes. I shouldn't have been. The discs are all in excellent condition, bar one which I can live with - it plays perfectly. I also made a point of loading up each and every disc and checked the episodes off against an episode guide, and they are all present and correct.
It is undoubtedly the enclosed booklet that has caused the confusion as it omits a few episodes from its listing, which isn't very helpful at all. As has been mentioned, these are the original discs repackaged. As a result you'll have to put up with the idiosyncracies of the original releases: odd disc numbering (mainly because volume 1 was a "best of season 1" set, volume 2 was the beginning of season 2 etc - the complete season 1 release didn't happen until later, by which time the horse had bolted). At the end of season 2 we also get two season 1 episodes (Hathor and Thor's Hammer) repeated. This must have been done to "fill up" the dvd, but only occurs this once. It's no big deal. It's no surprise to find that this is also the disc that includes two of the so-called "missing" episodes, 1969 and Out Of Mind. Trust me, they're all here!
Again, I'm not sure about the complaints about the packaging either. I'm not entirely sure how else they were supposed to do it short of giving us a box the size of my living room!
In the end this set has done exactly what I wanted it to do - given me the whole series (excluding the movies) and saved me a hell of a lot of shelf space. I previously owned seasons 1 to 6 individually. This box set takes up about a third of the space that those six managed to use.
Now I can settle back and watch seasons 6 - 10, which I have never seen. Great stuff.
