doctor-who-complete-fourth-series Surely, ‘Doctor Who’ must be one of the longest-running shows in TV history. I’m not an expert, but according to the Internet Movie Database, the show’s first series ran from 1963 to 1989, and the second series began in 2005 and continues to air new seasons. My sci-fi-loving mom used to watch the show in its early days, back when William Hartnell and Tom Baker were traveling the galaxies.

Doctor Who: The Complete Fourth Series’ (BBC Warner) was released on Nov. 18, 2008, and the box set includes 14 episodes on six discs, with David Tennant playing the doc. My super-secret ‘Doctor Who’ sources tell me the outstanding episodes here include ‘Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead’ doubleheader, ‘Midnight’ (a real creepfest!), ‘Turn Left,’ ‘The Stolen Earth,’ and ‘Journey’s End.’

Catherine Tate was also introduced as the Doc’s full-time companion Donna Noble. There’s no romance between the pair, and they’re occasionally helped by Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), and Jack Harkness (John Barrowman). The Daleks and Davros are the main monster attractions.

Special features include: Doctor Who Confidential, David’s video diaries, deleted scenes, teasers and trailers, retrospective featurette, Children in Need ‘Time Crash,’ and audio commentary.

  1. I have been watching Dr. Who since the beginning and I love it, it is so campy!! David Tennant was the best Doctor to date, hope I can win this one.

  2. As I Dr Who fan I’d like to construct a Pseudo-Tardis by placing a mock police box in the center of a number of Lakhovsky coils. The coils emit electromagnetic waves that induce a feeling of time travel in those who are exposed.

    Hope to win!

  3. I would love to win this for my best friend’s husband-he would be so pleased he would probably watch all the kids so we go could go out!

  9. Loved the original series & enjoy the new one, very glad to see they’ve kept to the same themes that made the first one so enjoyable. David T. made a great doctor & is up there w/ Tom Baker as one of the best.

  12. With twenty-four minutes left to go before midnight (Eastern Standard Time) will my comment be the last? My hope is that it is the luckiest — I started watching DOCTOR WHO with my late brother on public television in the mid-Eighties. Though I started with the Tom Baker / Peter Davison years the channel eventually added all of the earlier and later (at that time) Doctors. I even watched the critically reviled 1990s Fox Television movie. It would be a dream come true to win this set of the complete fourth season of the new series of DOCTOR WHO. Here is hoping that my entry is selected…

  13. Never let it be said that a last-minute comment won’t win! Our random draw chose Denis Howard as the winner of the Film Gecko Doctor Who giveaway. Congratulations, Denis, and good on you for adding your comment just minutes before midnight! I’ve emailed you for your address and will get this in the mail to you as soon as I hear back.

  14. I have always enjoyed Sci-Fi productions, and the Dr. Who production was the most famous British production ever produced.
