One of the most beloved British TV series is out with a new edition on DVD! On July 19, the first part of the new acclaimed season of Doctor Who: Series 6, Part 1.

About the DVD:

Doctor Who: Series 6, Part 1, a two-disc DVD and Blu-ray set, contains the first seven episodes along with two Monster files, “The Gangers” and “The Silence,” two of the Doctor’s most challenging opponents.
In the season opener, “The Impossible Astronaut,” four envelopes are received, numbered 2, 3 and 4, each containing a date, time and map reference, unsigned, but in TARDIS blue. Who sent them? And who received the missing number one? This strange summons reunites the Doctor (Smith), Amy (Gillan), Rory (Darvill) and River Song (Kingston) in the middle of the Utah desert and unveils a terrible secret the Doctor's friends must never reveal to him. ‘Space 1969’ is their only clue, as their quest lands them - quite literally - in the Oval Office, where they are enlisted by President Nixon himself to assist enigmatic former-FBI agent Canton (Mark Sheppard) in saving a terrified little girl from a mysterious spaceman.

Following the two-parter, the Doctor, Amy and Rory journey on the high seas of 1696 aboard Avery’s (Bonneville) pirate ship to solve the mystery of the Siren (Cole). In a bubble universe at the very edge of reality, the Doctor meets an old friend with a new face, and in a monastery on a remote island in the near future, an industrial accident takes on a terrible human shape. And waiting for them, at the end of all this, is the battle of Demon's Run, and the Doctor's darkest hour. Can even the truth about River Song save the Time Lord's soul? Only two things are certain. Silence will fall. And a good man is going to die...

To whet your appetite for these new episodes, here is a clip with an inside look at one of the episodes from the DVD:

I was introduced to Doctor Who way back in the early 80s. Like 1981 or 82. They were showing the Tom Baker episodes on PBS at that time.

I was 13 years old when I watched my first Doctor Who episode broadcast on my local PBS.

I became such a Doctor Who fan that I want to construct a Pseudo-Tardis by placing a mock police box in the center of a number of Lakhovsky Multiple Wave Oscillator Coils. The electromagnetic field generated by the coils induces a feeling of time travel in those exposed.

I've been a fan since 1976. The local urban station here in Detroit showed the Tom Baker years (with crudely inserted commercial breaks) over and over again until I was hooked. It came on right after DARK SHADOWS. Thanks!

I was a bit of a fan since seeing the show in reruns in the 80s but I really started watching it with the reboot in 2005.

Probably the late 70s or early 80s, when I first saw a Tom Baker episode on our local PBS station.

ive been a fan for probably 2 years? My friend kidnapped me and made me watch 9 and Rose and I just never stopped. I seriously think I finished straight through 10 in just a few days. Sleep is over-rated when you have the Doctor.

I may have dressed up as Amy Pond (Impossible Astronaut and Weeping Angels) at Comic Con last weekend. ;)

Obsessive? Naw....

I've been a fan since the new series started airing in the US (so around 2005 or 2006?) and have since watched as many of the classic series episodes I could find :)
