First things first, this is a very reasonably priced product. I know there have been claims of "overpriced" etc, however, if you examine that Seasons 5-7 are still priced at £35+ for bluray, then you have the Specials and seasons 1-4 included also, then £165 is quite decent.
Secondly, the product is very nicely packaged - The cardboard box is nicely designed and of good quality. The new cover designs on seasons 1-4 are VERY nice, and in my view a definite improvement on the previous packaging. ONLY problem I have is that they changed the "Doctor Who" logo from its "new credits" logo to that of the "classic doctors", which is fine, but from Season 5-7, the logo remains that of the "Matt Smith" era, completely breaking any continuity. My own thoughts are if they updated the packing from 1-4, then surely a logo change would have been easy to do on the newer series.
Now, there has been a lot of complaints about "slowing the show down" and that it runs longer on season 1-4. This sounds ridiculous to people, and yes, it is. The picture quality has DEFINITELY improved, lets get that out of the way first. In fact, my own thoughts are that the later seasons actually seem slightly grainer in comparison with the up conversions. If the show has been slowed by ANY amount, it isn't something you'd notice.
The sound quality is fantastic, I can honestly say that when Murry Gold's "Eleventh Doctor Theme" kicks in, it's amazing.
Now, my issues with this box set:
If you aren't bothered about extras or bonus features, then this won't be an issue, but for others there are some problems:
1. The bonus features are actually reduced in number from previous releases, not only on season 1-4, but on Season 5-7 as well.

Does anyone found the easter egg of "Blink" in the relative disk? I didn't. But is stated that is included inside the season 3 box card. If someone found, please, give me directions to find it in comment and I will edit.
-----
The episodes in the seasons 1 to 4 are a bit longer because of conversion to 1080i (25 to 24 fps), but nothing serious.
The episode of 5th season miss the trailer of next episode at the end of each, like in previous DVD and blu ray: shame on editor.
The boxes of seasons 1 to 4 and 2009 specials have the classic (slightly revisited for the 50th) logo instead of the reboot one and the 5th to 7th have the new "Moffat" logo. Ugly to see this discontinuity.
The boxes for seasons 5 to 7 and the 2009 specials have the same content but with a new graphic on the discs and on the back of the cover.
None of the boxes contain the relative "Episode guide" like in previous DVD and blu ray edition; instead they have a simple sheet with the same cover artwork in the front and the "table of contents" in the back.
The package should have contained an extra dummy case to replace with 50th anniversary and 2013 Christmas specials, to let us make it complete (like in "James Bond 50" box).

About the inner quality... too long to describe how disappointed I am.
Some scenes seem been taken with a consumer HD camera, others seem restored from a 1940's movie: there's no visual continuity in the photography anymore. Is strange but I had almost the same result when I upscaled myself with my computer the 1st disc of 1st season to HD. This box is better but... just a bit. So, I'm pretty sure that NO RESTORATION HAVE BEEN DONE TO SEASONS 1st TO 4th EPISODES. Anyway, newer episodes look better than older: I think that this depends from the quality of the recording.

For its value, doesn't worth the actual price (about 170£). Stick to the DVDs.

I have seen a lot of criticism for this set because of the fact that the first 4 series have been up scaled from standard def but having watched them all, I can say that they look fantastic and are the best that we an ever expect them to look. The Beeb could have done a lot worse like then Fox converted Buffy to HD recently and made a complete mess of it. If you haven't got any of the boxsets then I can't recommend this enough well worth the price. However if you have previous blu ray releases then just stick to the DVDs of 1-5. Unless uou can find them cheap on eBay individually.

This is the first review I've ever written on Amazon. Never before have I purchased a product so badly put together that I've felt the need to write one to warn others! Everything about this set screams cash in.

Firstly the artwork. The sets previously released on DVD have been included here with new artwork using the 'classic' logo and it looks great, however thats then been ruined by changing the branding on the more recent sets so even within this collection there is no uniformity. But that's the least of your problems. The bonus disc simple doesn't exist! The American release gets it but as seems to be the recent trend with Doctor Who us Brits are left out.

Series 1-4 have been upscaled and while they do look decent enough (although not a huge difference from watching the original DVDs on a good upscaling player) whatever method they have used has slowed down the episodes, I thought I was going mad but comparing running time on the DVD to these Blu Rays shows roughly a 5% slowdown!

The final problem is to me by far the worst and unforgivable. The Doctor Who DVD and Blu Ray releases have been plagued by both technical problems and issues with content (noticeably a rough cut of the Children in Need episode). Not a single one of these issues has been corrected. There is no way the BBC aren't aware of these problems so why not fix them? Only answer can be they simply can't be bothered.

Its such a shame as this was a fantastic chance to put the mistakes right and create a definitive set. Personally if I had been putting it together with it being now nearly 10 years since the return of the show a documentary on how the show came back and looking back at the first 10 years of the returned show would have been a no brainer.

2015 will be the 10th anniversary of the shows return, maybe for that the BBC can but together a decent box set.
