Movie synopsis
For many years, the BBC show made history in the United Kingdom as well as in America. "Doctor Who: The Complete First Series"is a sci-fi story about a Doctor who is a time lord. "Doctor Who: The Complete First Series" is loosely based on the same story line from the 1960s series, but the whole idea has undergone an overhaul. This season offers a more serious look at the Doctor, as opposed to the kitschy feel of the old show. "Doctor Who: The Complete First Series" shows viewers that the Doctor has taken on a new companion by the name of Rose. Stars of the show include Christopher Eccelston and Billie Piper. Features of the 5-disc set include the complete first series without any editing as well as a selection of documentaries. The 5-disc set also introduces the next Doctor, David Tennant, who will take over the role in the second series. This sci-fi reboot is suitable for fans and newcomers of the show alike., Longstanding fans may be left scratching their heads at the declaration that this is the COMPLETE FIRST SEASON of DOCTOR WHO. Indeed, the first episode of the classic sci-fi program dates back to 1963, and these episodes were first broadcast in 2005. But in a bid to rebrand the iconic Doctor the BBC decided to shake off the kitschy sets of old and fashion a brand new start for the franchise with this season. And when the new DOCTOR WHO made its way onto the British airwaves the effects were astonishing, with viewers sending ratings soaring and a whole new generation of fans immersing themselves in the unique universe created all those years ago. Christopher Eccleston (SHALLOW GRAVE, EXISTENZ) plays the ninth incarnation of the time lord, and with U.K. pop starlet Billie Piper playing the part of his companion, Rose, the Doctor embarks on yet more far-flung and improbable adventures: traveling 5,000,000,000 years into the future as the Earth is about to be swallowed by the sun, escaping from a mysterious space-station where the contestants are trapped in demented versions of popular reality-TV shows, and facing an old and terrible menace, the Daleks. This release contains the entire first season of the show.

The Doctor is Back!

Review For: Doctor Who - The Complete First Series (DVD, 2006, 5-Disc Set)

Fans of the original run of the show will not be disappointed, both new and old villains make an appearance and the oldest of villains become key to the overall story arc of the season. The Doctor and his companions visit the past and future and the laws of time are bent once again. Both the Doctor and Rose have to deal with individual consequences of interfering with the past and the future.

The scripts for the series are tight and very well written with very few holes. The special effects are pretty much industry standard. In my opinion, the character development is outstanding. I would recommend this show to both avid science fiction viewers and non-viewers who want to see how well written, acted and directed scripts can truly make three dimensional characters. Perhaps, in the case of Doctor Who, I should have said four dimensional characters.

"Doctor Who - The Complete First Season," is available as a box set or on four individual discs but, I would sincerely suggest that you chose the set. The season needs to be watched in its entirety to be fully appreciated. The bonus disc of "Doctor Who Confidential," in the set also, provides great insight into the series from inception to completion on an episode by episode basis.
