The BBC series just began its sixth season this weekend with Matt Smith as The Doctor; for Season 1, the Doctor was played by Christopher Eccleston, while Seasons 2-4 starred David Tennant in the iconic role. Each season DVD (all sold separately) contains all the episodes from that season, along with bonus features like episode commentaries, video diaries, interviews, and more.
Doctor Who is one of the greatest television shows ever. The long-running science fiction series, which premiered back in 1963, ran for 26 seasons before it went off the air in 1989 (with a TV movie in 1996); it was then rebooted back to Season 1 (Series 1 in the UK) in 2005 and has enjoyed some of its best years yet ever since.

From the product page:
Series 1 Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor is wise and funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner, his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world’s in danger. But when it comes to human relationships, he can be found wanting. That’s why he needs Rose. From the moment they meet, the Doctor and Rose understand and complement each other. As they travel together through time, encountering new adversaries, the Doctor shows her things beyond imagination.
Series 2 Can Rose trust a man with a new face? David Tennant (Viva Blackpool, Harry Potter) steps into the role of the Doctor, now in his 10th incarnation. Following on from the phenomenal success of the first series, the second series is full of more thrills, more laughs, more heartbreak and some terrifying new aliens and old acquaintances. The Doctor and Rose meet Queen Victoria, an evil race of Cat Women, K9 and Sarah Jane, and the dreaded Cybermen.
Series 3 The third installment of Doctor Who is full of new thrills, new laughs, new heartbreak and some terrifying new monsters. From the moment the Doctor walks into the life of medical student Martha Jones he changes it forever. In Elizabethan London, they meet William Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre while back in present day London, 76-year-old Professor Lazarus recaptures his youth with consequences that threaten Martha’s entire family. And, the Doctor’s sworn enemies, the Daleks, who have been hiding in 1930’s New York, return with a terrifying plan for humanity.
Series 4 Hot on the heels of the acclaimed third series, Doctor Who returns for a fourth instalment with a familiar face alongside the Doctor. Award-winning comedienne Catherine Tate returns as the Doctor’s new companion, revisiting her role as Donna Noble who featured in the 2006 Christmas special, The Runaway Bride. Martha Jones – who left the Doctor at the end of Series Three to break the unrequited circle of live she felt for him – will also return. Storylines are currently firmly under wraps at the moment but expect more thrilling adventures, scary monsters and a whole host of guest stars in Series Four.
