I hope the library buys series 5 and 6 soon. I wasn't happy that David Tennant left, but I think that series 6 is the best one so far: the TARDIS personified, River's history revealed- it's awesome!

David Tennant is by far the best Doctor ever, and The Complete Specials are amazing.

David Tennant is a fantastic doctor, but Peter Capaldi is my favourite. I hope season 10 will start soon!

I love this kind of quark, funny, creative show. There’s not much really creative entertainment coming out of Hollywood these days, and this show is really original. It doesn’t work so well in some episodes and can even come off as a little dumb, but when it does work it can be spectacular.

David Tennant is absolutely phenomenal. The way he got darker at the end of the specials was heartbreaking. I think the 10th Doctor lost a part of him when he lost Rose. I'm not ashamed to say that I bawled when David regenerated. He was amazing. But Matt Smith is also incredible so maybe it wasn't such a bad thing to change it up. Allons-y!

i know the 9th and 10th doctor were awesome, but i'll be so sad whenever matt smith regenerates, already heartbroken over amy and rory's departure. have to say though, that my favourite companion was Donna.

I'm a fan of David Tennant's acting, but he (and Christopher Eccleston before him) were given some grim and tragic scripts for Doctor Who. Far too many "little people" getting killed, far too much noble self-sacrifice. Has anyone calculated the average body count for a Doctor Who episode? Seriously. Still, there's some humour in the mix, some strong performances, some important questions answered and sort of happy endings for the survivors. At least I know what happened to the Time Lords now . . .

The "Planet Of The Dead" in this Seasonal set is an extraordinary fantastic fantasy!
