Includes all the Doctor Who Specials from 2009!

Episodes Comprise:

The Next Doctor: It's Christmas Eve in 1851 in The Next Doctor and Cybermen stalk the snow of Victorian London. When the Doctor arrives and starts to investigate a spate of mysterious deaths, he's surprised to meet another Doctor (David Morrissey), and soon the two must combine forces to defeat the ruthless Miss Hartigan (Dervla Kirwan). But are two Doctors enough to stop the rise of the CyberKing?

Planet of the Dead: Starring Michelle Ryan and Lee Evans, Planet Of The Dead was the first of this year's specials. When a London bus takes a detour to an alien world, the Doctor must join forces with the extraordinary Lady Christina. But the mysterious planet holds terrifying secrets, hidden in the sand. And time is running out, as the deadly Swarm gets closer...

The Waters of Mars: The Waters of Mars welcomes Lindsay Duncan as the Doctor's cleverest and most strong-minded companion. The Waters of Mars is a dark, scary thriller that sees the Doctor land on the planet Mars, at a base in peril. A creeping infection beneath the Martian surface threatens not only the human race, but also the Doctor's most fundamental beliefs. Together with Adelaide Brooke - the base's commander - the Doctor must stop a seemingly unstoppable menace before it can reach Earth, and wipe out mankind.

The End of Time: Part One: Join the Tenth Doctor for his final journey in The End of Time Parts One and Two, when his psychotic nemesis the Master has been reborn, on Christmas Eve. With both determined to cheat death, the battle ranges from the wastelands of London to the mysterious Immortality Gate, while the alien Ood warn of an even greater danger approaching, as a terrible shadow falls across the entire Universe.

The End of Time: Part Two: The Doctor faces the end of his life as the Master's plans hurtle out of control. With the sound of drums growing louder, and an ancient trap closing around the Earth, the Doctor and Wilf must fight alone. But sacrifices must be made, and the deadly prophecy warns: "He will knock four times."

This was one hell of a year for doctor who fans, a little slow as there was no full series but we have had some great stories in each of the episodes over 2009. The end of time was a fantastic feature length episode with a brilliant story, ending the series very well, David Tennant will surely be missed as he was a fine actor but from the look of things Matt Smith fits in quite well and should lead us into some quality new stories as the new born timelord! And from the looks of the trailer for next year even the Daleks set to return, I for one cant wait and will certainly be ordering this box set of the specials as must you!!

 One of the most powerful and emotional Doctor Who stories !

Cant wait for the next series looks great ! This blu ray specials boxset is the ultimate dvd farewell to the tenth doctor thank you play . com this dvd set is a definiate for any doctor who and David Tennant fan !

 Brilliant Xmas specials sandwiched by so-so adventures.

David Tennant's charisma has made the last few years of Doctor Who a fantastic viewing experience- even if, at times, the scripts, his co-stars and dubious plots have threatened to let him down.

Both the 2008 and 2009 Xmas specials here are brilliant, John Simm, Bernard Cribbins and David Morrisey are all exceptional. Elsewhere, Waters of Mars is a little dull and formulaic and Planet of the Dead was a CBBC rip-off of Pitch Black (In addition- who ever told Michelle Ryan she could act- she's terrible in everything)

 A let down for Tennant but must have

Doctor's 9 (Eccleston) and 10 (Tennant) have been the best in the new series that started in 2005. This series of specials was not as good as the 3 series David Tennant did beforehand. I think the regeneration was worse then some of the classic ones and I think it was Russel T Davies giving the leaving finger to the BBC. The regeneration from Eccleston to Tennant was awsome and you seen the change, same goes when the master changed into John Simm. But this regeneration from Tennant into Smith was lame. One second Tennant was standing there and then cut - instantly Smith is there. No changing process and odviously just a camera cut with the yellow added by CGI. They proved they could do great changing scenes in the regeneration process so why not this one. Looking at the series that followed with Matt Smith it is easy to see that we have lost the best Doctor Who writer of them all. Bye Bye David and Bye Bye Russel T Davis, Doctor who will never be as good without you two in it. I won't give my opinions of what I think of Moffets storylines except to say Doctor Who was axed before and it will be again. I sat through 'A Christmas Carol' on Christmas Day 2010 and thought "What a load of Rubbish, flying fish, what next? flying pigs?. Come on writers get your act together. If you can't bring back Tennant at least bring back Russel T Davis so we can get some decent storylines again.

 Its meh

I like Tennant as the Doctor and im quite able to let go and move on to another person in the role without feeling offense. RTD was a shoddy sci-fi writer at best and he slowly backed himself into a corner he couldnt escape from by constantly trying to be 'epic' so by the time it came to say bye he couldnt deliver. Ten was a good Doctor, a bit too weepy and weak compared to how i like my 900 year old aliens to be but he did good and Tennant is a great actor, shame then that his finale scene was pathetic to say the least, so the man who regenerated 9 times before suddenly starts weeping like a 4 year old with a skinned knee at the thought of it. looks great in Blu-ray but i wouldnt waste your money when normal DVD will surffice for these 'specials'
Oh and "What a load of Rubbish, flying fish, what next? flying pigs?" oh series one of your beloved RTD's involved a FLYING PIG IN A SPACE SHIP THAT HIT BIG BEN! not to be outdone he then brings out a flying Titanic to cruise over Buckingham Palace...Moffat over RTD every single time.
