There were a few moments in the third season of the revived Doctor Who when you begin to wonder if the bubble has burst. A couple of tepid Dalek episodes, and a handful of forgettable stories, make you begin--perhaps for the first time since the shows revival--whether its already hits its peak.
But never underestimate the new Doctor Who. For the back run of series three is as good as anything thats gone before it, with ingenious plotting, the clever layering of elements it casually--nah, crucially--refers to later on, and some quite superb individual episodes. It not only restores any hint of lost faith, it sets the bar even higher.

Examples? The stunning single story Blink is extremely clever, genuinely scary and has immense rewatch value. While the equally strong double-header of Human Nature and The Family Of Blood is a two-parter in the traditional Doctor Who way, building up its story in a measured and really effectively creepy way.

Then theres the finale. Presenting the Doctor with one of his finest, most ingenious villains makes for quite brilliant television (albeit with a slightly underwhelming concluding episode), as exciting to long-time fans of Doctor Who as it is for the newcomers.

And that, ultimately, is the brilliance of Doctor Who. It staggers so many levels of viewer enthusiasm, appeals to an extremely broad age demographic, and woos over fans new and old in a manner that no show currently on television can manage. And while the clich?f hiding behind the sofa may not be as accurate as it once was, Doctor Who season three will undoubtedly leave you gripped to the TV. --Simon Brew

still pricey in my opinion considering we pay for them to be made through the license fee.
#2
And no chance of Amazon's lenticular version...
#3

I agree it's still really expensive, but to be fair it's over £13 cheaper than anywhere else. Voted lukewarm on that basis. :)

Whether you think it's good value or not is irrelevant to me. It's still the cheapest that I can find on the web, and on that basis I've voted hot.

Like BristolDeal I've put some heat onto this in case you're specifically after the boxset, as it is the best price at the mo' by a fair bit....BUT...if you're not precious about having a gatefold box then the 4 individual volumes are only around the seven quid mark so hitting the £28 region & most of the places selling have Quidco (varying rates & e-tailers) which Amazon doesn't.....

The individual episodes don't have the extras though do they?

It is bloody annoying that these boxsets are some of the very few that don't get reduced.

This is a 6 disc set that includes The Runaway Bride. So to buy the 5 story discs at £7 each would cost £35. On top of that you get the BBC3 Doctor Who Confidential cut-down programmes. Plus the audio is a 5.1 surround mix and not the stereo of the vanilla release.

Apologies, hadn't noticed the inclusion of the Runaway Bride as the Amazon episode listing didn't feature.....
(Thanks for all the extra info Prof)

I'd love to know the reason the Dr Who boxsets are permanently grossly overpriced. I guess people are still willing to pay this joke of a price, god knows why.
