These are really nice, but I'm not into the font you've used for the titles at all, that's the only thing really letting them down.

I love your idea to use the colours assigned to the toys. Even now when I think of those early series the colour used on the figures springs to mind. I guess that's good marketing.

I used to make my own covers for my home recorded DVDs, stick the cases in a cardboard box with a custom image stuck on. I might take some pictures of them one day. Most of them are gone now as I've replaced them with the official DVDs.

I don't know what font you're using, but it doesn't look like the right one, it should be "futura display". What you've got looks like someone made a font out of the 2010 logo, like look at the R.

Yeah I was going to say it looks like the 2010 font. I downloaded one called 'Matt Smith Doctor Who' looks just like it.

Here is a sample I made to illustrate the correct font, and for absolutely no other reason. Titles are in futura display, very pale cream colour (mine is a bit too saturated here) with a slightly offset black duplicate behind and a very slight beveling to the text. most of the rest of the text is conduit itc, I don't have the exact version, but the one I used there is a variant. Should be conduit ITC medium on the front for the "xyz years" and conduit itc light for the writer, blurb, and special features.
