Here is a complete list of Doctor Who DVD/Blu-ray/CD releases, compiled by biglou114

Doctor Who is a British science fiction series produced by the BBC, which depicts the adventures of a mysterious and eccentric person known only as the Doctor. The Doctor is of an alien race known as the Time Lords, who are from the planet Gallifrey, and travels around in time and space in his time machine called the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension(s) In Space), which is almost always shown as a 1960s British police box. The Doctor often travels with companions and in their travels they face a variety of foes and save civilizations from these enemies.
Being a Time Lord, the Doctor has the ability to regenerate in times of near death and in doing so changes his appearance entirely, yet still remaining the same person. Time Lord’s are usually able to regenerate a maximum of twelve times, meaning they can have thirteen lives and at the moment we know the Doctor has had eleven incarnations, with the current incarnation being played by Matt Smith
The Doctor also travels alongside a companion or several companions, most of whom are young females, and serve as a surrogate with whom the audience can identify with, where they often ask the Doctor questions or get into trouble to further the story along.

The show began on 23rd November 1963 and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running science fiction television series in the world. It originally lasted from 1963-1989, running as a serial format with each story predominantly lasting four or six episodes in length with a 25 minute run time, although sometimes the stories were shorter, lasting at two or three episodes in length or sometimes longer with a length of seven episodes, with the longest story running for fourteen episodes. Then in 1996 there was an attempted revival of the show for an American audience, which ultimately failed, but in 2005 it came back, abandoning the serial format, but staying as a continuation of the same series.
The show has also spawned off many spin-offs, with two television spin-offs currently airing: Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

As for Amy Pond... hubba hubba!!!
So is this another version of Dr Who or is this just another casting change? I've never seen a single episode of any version of the show, but it seems like there are a lot of them.

This is the 11th Doctors. Everytime he dies he become's a new person, it's a bit complicate to explain.

It's actualy a very good way to keep the show going and fresh, get a new actor, new writers and while the essence of the Doctor is still there you get fresh blood and new ideas into the show. Been following the Doctor since the late 70's and seen most of the older episodes. It's actualy a good show if one follow the stories instead of focusing on the FX

the show started in 63 and then went off air in 89, then came back in 2005 until today. The old interval is usually referred to as classic and the re-launch the new Dr.who, even though the reality is that the show evolved a bit in the original 26 years it was on air and it was not as drastic a re-launch as often seen in movies.

Furthermore Last season (or series as it is called in the UK) was skipped. So it had a bit of a brake, even though at the time it was a skip and not a stop.

as for casting the premise of the show (with out giving too much away) is that you have a main character who is called "The Doctor", he is an alien and a time traveler, who travels in time and space most of the time with one or more companions. So most of the cast in each episode is different (for example if one episode he is in ancient Pompeii, you don't expect everyone else to be the same as the people you see in the next episode where he is on a different planet (or ship) in the future. The companions also tend to come and go, pick someone up in one episode, then lose them (they decide to stay, don't make it back, die....) maybe a few months or years later. As for the main character, "the doctor" (people on his planet don't tend to have/use real name and are referred to by some title) the body needs to regenerate every so often, and when it does he looks different and acts a bit different. It is not death in the normal sense (i.e. he got shot) but it became an easy excuse when the first actor got replaced by a much younger actor in 66 to explain continuity.
here are all the actors playing the doctor



going left-right up to down the first 7 are the original Dr.Who, #8 played the doctor once for a TV movie pilot in 96that was a BBC/Fox co production, the other 3 are the new doctors.

so what it this thread about, two things, the show coming back after a one year hiatus and a new actor playing the doctor.

as for versions of the show, not sure what you mean, there is classical (old) and new? do you assume that series meant versions? or where you curious about the actors playing the Doctor?

The Space channel just opened the season this past weekend in Canada. Not sure how far along you are in the UK.

Seemed good so far, I wasn't sure what to think of Matt before but he was pretty good.

I wish Space would go back and show all the other seasons starting with Eccleston.

I've only seen the specials from Tennants run and would like to see what I've missed.

I think he might be good. I just saw the first episode and the re-generation was a bit more "nuts" then usual but it looks like he might have the right mix of "eccentric". A bit of it reminded me of Tom Baker (even the point of no control over where the Tardis goes)

I grew up watching him on PBS. Wish I knew what happened to my VHS dubs. Probably wound up being taped over by my brother for that damned Fraggle Rock.

I think the new season, based on watching one episode and very selectively reading forums, will be amazing. I'm really liking the new Doctor, and this is coming from a huge fan of the David Tennant series.

Campy, entertaining, and very British. I love the good Doctor... I can't think of any other show that has two characters holding hands and hugging so often. It's charming.
