Doctor Who: Series 1 - 4 Collection [DVD]
I can't praise this revitalised continuation of an old fan-favorite too much.
Russel T. Davies and crew has managed to reintroduce The Doctor for a new generation, a fresh take that nevertheless acknowledges the previous series, or "seasons" as we say these days.
That means Doctors 1 to 8 still happened, and are (more than) hinted at from time to time (ho ho, li'l pun there).
Eccelston is instantly likable as the ninth incarnation, different enough to be his own, yet clearly the same man, 'scuse me, timelord he always was. Quirky, clever, inventive and dangerous.
Rose, her mum, Mickey and other assorted characters that help flesh out the series are all well written and well chosen, you instantly see why Rose was chosen as a companion... yes, she's cute and pretty, but that's not the reason.
Resourceful, that's what she is, and she inspires her on/off/on/off boyfriend to become a proper hero, and her mum to show real bravery.
I recall the regeneration and all the hoolabaloo that followed (hasn't that always happened when the doctor changed?) and then the joy at discovering Doctor Number Ten holding his own to the ninth, and then push beyond.
The unforgettable Harriet Jones, the suffering but smart Martha Jones (no relation), the surprising return of Sarah Jane Smith (and K9!) and the sheer delight of Donna Noble - and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Four series of sheer mad fun in one box, what more could you want?

I am a Whovian, so this was a must have... especially since Netflix pulled down Seasons 1-4 :)
Eccleston and Tennant, just great seasons.

Highly entertaining, i wont give any plotrs away:
This was the first time I ever saw Catherine Tate and she is brilliant - wish she had been in more episodes, the year with her was just like the good old Dr Whos i grew up, adventures into over worlds, solving problems, facing the baddies. Great stuff.

The other years were brilliant too, Billie Piper and Martha JOnes - pity Martha only did one year as well, really glad she has kept being cameos in Torchwood etc since.

The Doctors here are wonderful.

If you liked Dr Who as you grew up in the seventies as I did, I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
