4.0 out of 5 stars Box set review, 29 Jun. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who -- The Complete Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
What I liked:

- The episodes are awesome. There is not one bad episode.
- The boxset isn't like the previous 4 series, instead it is in the style of a book where you flip through the DVD's.
- The quality of the DVD's (Standard definition) is fantastic.
- There are a lot of special features on each DVD.
- There is a 6th bonus DVD for the confidential cut downs which I really enjoyed.

What I didn't like:

- Instead of having 3 episodes on each disk, on some there are only 2. The boxset would be better having 5 disks instead of the spread out 6.
- Because of it only having 2 episodes on some disk it messes up some 2-part stories. For example on the weeping angle episodes you have to change the disk to watch the second part.
- No episode guide included.

Conclusion:

If you are a Doctor who fan I would definitely recommend buying this box set as it is fantastic!

You know, more episodes on a single disc means more compression and loss of quality. The fact that the episodes are spreaded out on 6 discs may very well be the reason why you described the quality as "fantastic".
