The packaging may not be anything special—for the price, maybe you'd rather have something "Doctor Who"-related, even TARDIS-related, like there is for some fancy Blu-ray sets—but there is a lot inside the box. (Wouldn't it have been awesome to open up a TARDIS to get to the discs? But maybe that's to come in a later gift set…) However, with the packaging the way it is, each season comes in its own compact case (for example, the Blu-rays of seasons 5 and 6 were sold in 6-disc sets, which do take up more room and the same special features can be found on these new 4-disc sets), and that does make it easier to store them if you want to take the seasons out of the box and add them to the rest of your DVD collection.

All seven seasons are in Blu-ray, with the first four in Blu-ray/1080p Resolution for the first time, and that is absolutely fantastic. Even if you own them in DVD, you may want to consider upgrading your collection and buying this set anyway. Plus, there's also a disc set featuring David Tennant's specials, and you also get a bonus disc with three specials from BBC/BBC America. In total, there are 4815 minutes plus bonus features (and those bonus features add up; you could spend days watching this set)—and 120 minutes of that bonus material is on disc for the first time. How could you go wrong buying this?
