Buy Your Ninth And Tenth Doctor Who DVDs Now – 61% Off

From now until midnight (presumably PST), Amazon in the US are offering Series 1-4 of Doctor Who (if that’s how we’re going to count it) at a reduced price of 61% off. That’s $31.49 instead of $79.98 each.

Bargain.

As something of a Moffat-head, here’s how I remember these “early years”:

Series One was the show’s big return after several years in the television wilderness. The Empty Child may have introduced Captain Jack, but it also brought us the softly disquieting “Are you my mommy?” mantra. That episode, and it’s second part, The Doctor Dances, deservedly won a Hugo.

Series Two introduced David Tennant’s Tenth incarnation of The Doctor, arguably the greatest yet seen. Whereas Russell T. Davies had flirted with introducing a romance element to the show, Moffat just came out and had the Doctor fall in love for The Girl on the Fireplace. It also had the brilliant moment with the wee girl in bed, and the ticking, and the something underneath, and… the episode deservedly won a Hugo.

Series Three is the one with Blink. Which deservedly won a Hugo. If you don’t know Blink, Neil Gaiman has some words for you.

Series Four introduced River Song in the superb two-parter Silence in the Library and Forest of the Dead. This was the year that this category in the Hugos went to Dr. Horrible’s Singalong Blog.

I guess this is the perfect time to buy these Steven Moffat episodes of Doctor Who series box sets at a nice price – even if you think the show has now gotten past its sell by date.
