Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Blu-ray Giftset Detailed (Updated)

Posted September 5, 2013 12:28 PM by Webmaster

BBCWarner Bros. and BBC Home Entertainment have detailed the 29-disc Blu-ray release of the Doctor Who: Series 1-7 Limited Edition Giftset, which features all seven seasons of the series (with the first four seasons making their Blu-ray debut), hours of extras, a bonus disc of additional specials, a Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote Control (see embedded video below), 3 art cards and an exclusive Doctor Who comic book. The giftset is set to arrive on November 5th.

Official Synopsis: For the first time ever, the rebooted Doctor Who is all together on Blu-ray. At the heart of the collection are the episodes themselves, newly remastered and looking better than ever. Included are the Complete Series 1-4, featuring Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston and Tenth Doctor David Tennant, all making their Blu-ray debut at full 1080p high definition. The set also includes the David Tennant Complete Specials, the Complete Series 5-7 featuring Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith, all the bonus features included in the previous releases, and a bonus disc with three new-to-Blu-ray specials:

  • The Brit List's Ultimate Doctor Who List of Lists: BBC America's pop culture correspondent, Asha Leo, is joined by special guest John Barrowman (Torchwood, Doctor Who) to announce the rankings of the "Top Five Companions," "Top Five Scariest Moments," "Top Five Best Monsters," "Top Five Guest Stars" and "Top Five Things You'll Only See on Doctor Who." Rankings are based on votes from readers of BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog.


  • The Best of the Christmas Specials: This previously unreleased special from December 2011 takes an inside look at the very best moments from the incredible Doctor Who Christmas specials that have captivated audiences around the world. A collection of fans from the celebrity, comedy, sci-fi and digital worlds discuss their favorite moments from both David Tennant and Matt Smith era Christmas episodes.


  • Doctor Who at the Proms: Doctor Who's own Karen Gillen and Arthur Darvill host a spectacular evening of music from the series played live by the London Philharmonic Orchestra at London's historic Royal Albert Hall. Includes video projections, appearances by the monsters and a special guest appearance from 11th Doctor Matt Smith. For the first time, the collection will include the full 90-minute concert and has been remastered in 5.1 Surround Sound.

Man, if I had $300 to blow, I would totally get this. I laready have series 5, 6, and 7 so I can't really justify spending that much on this. But this is super sweet.

I'll be grabbing the individual season sets when they release them. Not double dipping for this POS "Universal" remote control.

All of the cool containers they could have put this box set in, and they choose this bland box. I would probably have bit if they put it in a Tardis/Police Call Box.

Well, hopefully we get these as individual releases at the same time. I don't need the remote.

I'd bite at 160.00 (20.00 per season plus 20.00 for the screwdriver, which I assume to be cheap plastic that likely won't really be all that useful). Otherwise I'm content with the Matt Smith years.

Series 1-4 and some of the 2008 and 2009 specials were clearly shot on SD tape to my eyes. An upscale may do them good, but I think saying "Included are the Complete Series 1-4, featuring Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston and Tenth Doctor David Tennant, all making their Blu-ray debut at full 1080p high definition." is borderline false advertisement.

lobosrul: Well, actually series 1-4 WILL be 1080p upscales of standard def... oh, wait, that sounds just as bad...

I'm with you. Unless they've figured out some way to significantly improve PQ over the DVDs, I'm not biting.

@MoulinBlu The Sonic Screwdriver included in the set is a high quality piece. Lots of brass and metalwork. It retails for $100, I'd be amazed if in 10 years you'll be able to find it for $20.

Sorry but I don't get it. Blu-ray giftset detailed. Where are the details ? Yes I know I can look up the individual releases but weren't they some features missing from those releases compared to the UK editions. a commentary for one thing. A couple of other things . Not sure what; others will be more up on those things. Essentially will those features be reinstated to this set ? Infact what about the full length confidentials ? At a guess I'd hazard not.

I guess to me the "Detailed" part of this news title is only stating what is already known. Sorry if this is a bit of a downer. At $300.00+ bucks it's a big hit at that time of year. I know about the sonic remo... I mean screwdriver but that will more than likely end up at the back of a cupboard.

Unless Seasons 1-4 look radically better upscaled from the original SD sources, I can't really see myself rebuying them on Blu-ray either. Yes, the audio will probably be an upgrade...and perhaps I'll consider buying the individual seasons (when they're cheap) if the A/V reviews are positive. But otherwise, there's just no way I'd blow $300!

I'd much rather get this from BBC directly from Amazon UK and not give a cent to Warner Brothers for this series.
The 2005-Now series isn't a Reboot! It's a Revival!

I've only had 1 cup of coffee so far, so I might just be reading past it... but is the animated stuff included? (The Infinite Quest)

2005 onwards is a reboot.

1. Stories are much more sophisticated
2. Characters are much better drawn, developed
3. Because of point 2. acting is much more demanding for Ecclestone, Tennant and Smith and their many companions
4. Concept is more adult than kiddie oriented

About the only things that are still the same are the incongruous but effective Tardis and the reappearance of many of the "villains" from the earlier era.

If it was reboot, we'd be going on Doctor #4.

SD to HD conversion notwithstanding... I realise this is timed to co-incide with the 50th anniversary on 23rd November, but how crazy is it to release a set like this just short of Matt Smith's final two episodes - especially since one is a Tennant/Smith crossover? Nuts!

They weren't included in the previous season releases on DVD, and they aren't listed here, so they don't appear to be.

That's been my thought as well.

What push me over the edge for this set is the fact that it seems that the Tennant Specials, Series 5, and Series 6 have been re-encoded in 1080p.

@Skorpius - it's complicated. it's not entirely a reboot but it's also not really a continuation of the classic series, it just uses the existing backstory to keep going.

I don't see why they only released a 1-7 gift set, when a lot of the fans probably got 5 and 6 back when they were $20.. so it seems like they should've done a 1-4.5 gift set as well. I'd have gotten this probably if 5 and 6 were the exact same releases so I could just sell them separate or something, but if the photo is the final product then they changed their packaging and I can't sell the ones I already have.

@kevin87

It is a direct continuation.

It just takes place quite a while after the end of The Classic Series.

Btw that box set looks awesome!
