Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Doctor Who collection is a tale of two presentations: Series 1-4 and 2008 David Tennant special "The Next Doctor" have been upscaled to 1080p from a take-it-or-leave-it standard definition source, while the remaining 1080p presentations of Series 5-7, the additional Tennant specials and the 2010-12 Christmas specials have been created from a native high definition source. The differences are quite startling if you aren't prepared for the changeover, and the boost in color, clarity and crispness when moving from Series 4 to The Complete Specials or Series 5 is dramatic and dazzling. That doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with Series 1-4, though. Nor is there a feasible way BBC Entertainment could have delivered the first four seasons any other way. The upgrade from DVD isn't blatantly obvious, at least not initially, but if you know what to look for, improvements abound. Colors are a touch stronger, saturation is a bit more lifelike, black levels are both deeper and purer, contrast is more consistent, and several eyesores from the DVDs are MIA (particularly compression artifacts and encode-born macroblocking, which have all but been eliminated). The softness inherent to any upscaled presentation and the anomalies that frequent the show's visual effects sequences (aliasing especially) are really the only irritations to be had, and again, none of it could have been prevented or lessened. The first four seasons aren't going to wow anyone, no argument here. But, all things considered, the first four seasons couldn't look any better than they do here.

The rest of the seasons and specials have already been released on Blu-ray in one form or another. The Complete Specials, The Complete Fifth Series, The Complete Sixth Series and Series 7's four individual releases all topped out at 1080i. Until now, only The Complete Seventh Series box set offered a 1080p Doctor Who presentation. That all changes with BBC's 29-disc set. Everything is AVC-encoded 1080p, including all of the seasons that were previously released in 1080i. And, for all intents and purposes, the new 1080p presentations are as close to perfect as any Doctor Who fanatic could hope for. Now, the old 1080i releases were no slouch in the video department, so the upgrade we're discussing isn't game-changing or life-affirming. Most viewers won't even notice the difference without comparing screenshots or scrutinizing any given episode. That doesn't mean there aren't notable improvements, though. Superior quality abounds -- slight as it may seem at times -- and the few issues that haunted each season and special's 1080i counterpart have, for the most part, disappeared. Any unsightly business that remains is merely a product of the source or the show's modestly budgeted VFX. Nothing more sinister.

Colors and primaries are striking, fleshtones and saturation are lovely on the whole, black levels are bold and wholly satisfying, edge definition is clean and refined, textures are exceedingly well-resolved, and delineation is excellent. Moreover, significant artifacting, banding, ringing and other mishaps are kept at bay. Yes, blink-and-miss-it aliasing still manages to creep in from time to time, grain-like noise is an inherent part of the image and, every now and then, contrast is superheated to the point of growing a wee bit overbearing. But once again, the series' source and photography are the culprit. And none of it amounts to anything of consequence. The Doctor Who box set could have been a lazy double dip that slapped all the previously released discs in one premium-priced package. Instead, the studio has taken the road less traveled, honoring fans with the best presentations possible for each and every episode. There's absolutely nothing here that should be cause for legitimate disappointment. The first four seasons were shot in SD. Deal with it. Better on Blu-ray than not. The specials and last three seasons have never looked better. Embrace it. Enjoy it. Eat it up. This is the set every Who fan should have at the top of their wish list. If I wasn't lucky enough to already own a copy, it would certainly be sitting at the top of my own list.


Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Pleased as I was with the video presentation, the Doctor Who set offers a more consistent audio experience. Each season, episode and special is presented in all its lossless glory with terrific DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. (Note: the majority of the previously released DW Blus offer DTS-HD High Resolution audio, but no lossless mix.) Subjectively, listeners will note a slight uptick in perceived -- key word perceived -- quality from one series to the next. Objectively, though, every season's mix is as proficient and precise as any other. Any "improvement" should be chalked up to the show's steadily increasing production values and other ingrained factors; not a quality discrepancy of any sort. The first season in particular is rougher than the rest, while Series 5-7 feature the most progressively cinematic sound design of the seven. So what does any excitable fan have to look forward to? LFE output is aggressive and booming, throwing its weight behind every explosion, implosion, TARDIS crash, hurtling spacecraft, doomed planet, Dalek blast, Cybermen assault, lumbering beast and destructive interstellar event the Doctor(s) encounter. The rear speakers are convincing and nicely populated too, with slick, smooth pans and accurate directionality (especially in more atmospheric or frightening episodes, where nightmarish happenings are made that much more intense by the already engaging soundfield). Better still, dynamics are quite excellent, and dialogue remains clean, clear and carefully prioritized throughout all seven seasons. The series' music comes on a bit strong on occasion, but it hardly amounts to an issue. Short version: no complaints here.
