I really wan't to watch this series, but do you have to see the other seasons to understand this series, or could you start watching it from season 5?

I would definately buy the New Dr Who seasons 1 to 4 boxed set (Doctor Who: Series 1 - 4 Collection [DVD]) first, as it's so cheap [for 23 DVDs] and it's all you need to know as it assumes no prior knowledge of the previous 20 odd Dr Who seasons that came before it. The first four New Dr Who seasons have some fantastic storylines [e.g. Bad Wolf] and follow the adventures of the previous ninth and tenth Doctor incarnations. The first 4 seasons also introduce all the doctor's enemies [and friends], and so by season 5 it is assumed you know all about them already.

The next mini-season 'specials' DVD set (Doctor Who - Complete Specials (The Next Doctor/ Planet of the Dead/ Waters of Mars & Winter Specials) [DVD]) covering the year just before this Season 5 set is not such a good starting point. Hopefully you will be totally hooked after watching Dr Who seasons 1 to 4 and then move on to this specials set. It's really nice, if not essential, to know what happened to the tenth Doctor [The End of Time].

The 'Complete Series 5' listed here follows on directly from these two older DVD sets, and stars the current Dr Who [the eleventh Doctor].

I myself started with season 1 because I like Chris Eccleston. Next I bought The Christmas Specials to watch Tim Dalton. [Later I bought the seasons 1-4 box set because I became a fan of Doctor Who.] I was able to understand the stories then. So I think you can start watching season 5 without watching previous seasons.
