THE JOURNEY BEGINS AGAIN FOR THE 'NINTH - DOCTOR'
Over the next week or so I will add to the review disc by disc, must admit until tonight I
haven't watched 'The Doctor' since watching the 1965 Film 'Dr Who and the Daleks'
However for some time now I've been reading well written and interesting reviews that
cover both the 'TV' -Series and many 'Audio' 'Doctor' Stories written by fellow reviewer
'Timelord' frankly I've been wondering what I've not been watching these past years.
'Doctor Who' originally ran on BBC between 1963 - 1989 many fans were disappointed
when they wound it up.............and of course they resurrected it much to the joy of the
faithful in 2005, of course a new following have also emerged
This 5-Disc Box-set (Police Box) First - Series Edition with a booklet is of the Ninth
Doctor played by 'Christpher Eccleston' joined by 'Rose' played by 'Billie Piper'
Episode One - 'Rose'
The Doctor stumbles across 'Rose' who appears to being chased by Tailors Dummies'
in the basement of the store where she works, the Doctor believes the Dummies are
in fact after him, he helps 'Rose' escape.
When the problem is resolved the Doctor invites his new friend to join him as he travels
backwards and forward in time helping to solve problems throughout the 'Universe'
7/10.
Episode Two - 'The End of The World'
The Doctor and Rose gate-crash a party watching the final moments of Earth in 5-Billion
years time.
The guests on-board the Space-Module have gathered from around the Universe to watch
the event.
One of the invited guests have brought metallic spiders onto the vessel to ensure those on
the Ship to perish as the Sun destroys the Earth, the innocents on board are in great danger
things are hotting up.
'Rose' has been snatched and is put into extreme danger of being roasted alive, the Doctor
try's to reach his partner, and combat the threat of the ship suffering the same fate as 'Earth'
7/10
Rose is beginning to learn being a 'Timelord' has it's advantages, the Doctor and Rose are
about to travel back in time for a new adventure.
Episode Three - 'The Unquiet Dead'
The year 1869 it seems there is a problem, the dead are not sleeping easy.
These are the times of writer 'Charles Dickens'
For Rose going back to this time is an excuse to dress the part, also a novel experience seeing
how thing were in the 19th Century.
The Doctot of course looking for his next adventure, he doesn't have to wait long as screams
sound out from a Theatre where 'Charles Dicxens' is giving a recital of his works 'Scrooge'
a ghostly figure sits among the audience.
'Rose' meanwhile has been kidnapped by the local undertaker at who's parlour the Zombie like
creatures appear to be rising from.
The Doctor along with the writer are in pursuit - when inside the parlour the Doctor' realizes
the undertakers 'Maid' has a connection to whatever is trying to transfer their being into bodies
of the dead.
A phenomenon the 'Doctor' has to try and resolve.
8/10
Must admit, I'm quite enjoying the series so far, though I'm only one disc in, obviously there are
many reviewers on the Amazon website that have a more knowledgeable insight in regards to the
Doctor and it's History........I myself experimented because of reading the many reviews of
'Timelord' 007' other reviewers I've glanced at that have wrote many 'Dr Who' reviews and are
as enthusiastic 'Tim Bradley' and 'Keen Reader' among them, all three having knowledge of
the 'Dr Who' journey down the years.....I look forward to disc two and beyond, then who knows ?

actually want ?

process of illumination the 'Doctor' works out who the 'Alien' visitors are, 'The Slitheen'

This is in many ways exactly the same as it was on DVD...but it's on blu-ray, and steelbook. Mostly then, you buy this for the swank factor, and on that it doesn't disappoint. Also, good to get a new copy of Series 1 after a decade of watching the DVDs. Now just hoping that subsequent releases of steelbooks for the following series are coming with similar designs, otherwise, it's going to look a little lonely along with the Series 9 steelbook.

This steelbook case is beautiful. I have a few other Amazon exclusive steelbook and this like all the other doesnt disappoint. It is definitely worth the extra money for that alone. The blu rays are as far as im aware are the same as the the standard series 1 set sp of you already own it this is probably not worth it, but if like me you didn't then this is absolutely FANTASTIC! Sorry i couldnt resist.
Beware also these are limited so once they are gone good luck finding one for a modest price (look up the series 9 one) so dont wait too long!

The steelbook on this is amazing and the quality of the episodes look like they were shot in HD and not upscaled. I truly hope they do releases like this for seasons 2-10 because I will pre-order them in a heartbeat.

I remember watching this when it was first broadcast in 2005 and enjoying it enormously. Ten years on, and not having seen it since, it was so good to be able to enjoy it all over again.

After an indifferent start I really grew to like Christopher Eccleston by the series end and am disappointed he only made the one series. I must own for Doctor Who fans
