The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th anniversary special. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space, an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

Starring: Matt Smith, David Tennant and Jenna Coleman with Billie Piper and John Hurt. This must-have DVD contains the eagerly anticipated feature length anniversary episode, 2 mini-episodes including the explosive Night of the Doctor starring Paul McGann, Doctor Who Explained, Behind the lens and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Matt, David & John...the DREAM TEAM! 30 Dec 2013
Format:DVD
I went to see the 50th Anniversary Special in 3-D at the pictures. Reliving it on DVD reminded me of what a fun experience that was, and why this awesome special is basically the ultimate movie for Doctor Who.

Matt Smith is as brilliant as ever, and David Tennant returns in a triumphant blaze of glory. Together with John Hurt as the 'War Doctor', they partake in an absolute epic that no fan can afford to miss. There's Daleks, Zygons, Time Lords, revelations about the Time War, plus Jenna Coleman as Clara and Bille Piper (Yes!) back again as Rose Tyler, looking to save the day in a moment that changes the landscape of Who forever (in a GOOD way!).

This DVD features some brilliant trailers and documentaries, with the crown jewel being the phenomenal 'Night of the Doctor', which sets the scene perfectly for this special. For fans of Doctor Who...WHAT are you waiting for?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spoiler Alert! 29 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Very rarely in life when something is hyped up so much for such a lengthy period of time can it actually deliver, in fact it's more likely the case that the lower your expectations the more chance you are going to be pleasantly surprised. Given the diverse history of Doctor Who, the plethora of script writers, the myriad of different characters who played the role (often poles apart) whoever was going to be given the task of writing the 50th Anniversary Special was on a hiding to nothing. So hats off to Mr Moffat on a truly stupendous roller coaster ride of an episode in the life of the most brilliant sci-fi series ever to grace this planet. It's not without it's faults & it was never going to please everybody but I for one was delighted to have some of the gaps filled in with the mini prequel showing Paul McGann's regeneration (included in this set) & John Hurt's regeneration in the show itself. The best kept secret of the surprise cameo appearances of the 13th Doctor & Tom Baker at the end was a stroke of genius. Yes, it would have been great to see Christopher Eccleston reprise his role but he has always made it abundantly clear he was never a fan of Doctor Who, this was an acting job he did with great relish eight years ago & he politely declined to take any part in a celebration of a show he never watched as a child. My other regret is this wasn't given the full movie treatment & a timing to match. I truly believe it would of benefited greatly if it was closer to a two hour affair as the plot did seem rushed at points & certain characters would have benefited for having their roles fleshed out. There, I hope I have managed to lower your expectations just a little if you haven't already seen it so you can enjoy it for what it is ... a love letter from a fan to Doctor who. Here's to the next 50 years.

By Stephen Reid TOP 500 REVIEWER

I never cease to wonder at the inventiveness of Steven Moffat. Without giving away too much of the story, in this special he has managed to fill the gap between Paul McGann's one-time outing in the title role and when Christopher Ecclestone took over. He has brought together in a single episode both Matt Smith and David Tenant and (and another ... I won't spoil it) and paid homage to a show that has become part of the British psyche over the last fifty years. Each Doctor is featured including the 'War Doctor' played by John Hurt.

I was nervous lest this special might turn out to be a disappointment. It could have been so easy to get it wrong: try to pack in too much is a short space of time, or a story that didn't hang together. All the pitfalls have been skillfully avoided and the whole thing has been delivered with affection and pride.

I remember the very first Doctor Who - I have it on DVD. In those black-and-white days of uncertainty over the new ideas, who would have expected the show to be going so strong fifty years later? But it is and this is a fitting episode to celebrate the show's enduring appeal.

The story line in 'The Day of the Doctor' is good. Complex, yes, but it hangs together well and fills a few holes in the Doctor's history. The reappearance of David Tennant and Billy Piper is a joy.

The 3D works well. I have shown this version to three young people who sat captivated and all reported that the 3D added to their enjoyment.

There are two mini-episodes on this release that were shown on TV in the build-up to this episode. They add, in a few minutes each, background to the story-line without giving anything away. Very good. The other extras are worth watching too.

Positive.
1)Matt Smith, David Tennant & John Hurt share a wonderful chemistry as the Doctor's in this 50th Anniversary adventure.
2)This plot is one of intrigue setting up series 8.
3)Cameos from Peter Capaldi & the legend that is Tom Baker.

Negative.
1)The Zygons were more a misdirection than actually part of the main plot & maybe this storyline should have concentrated on just the Doctor's & the Time War & left the Zygons for another adventure, Although they help the War Doctor in his observation on what to do next.

Trivia.
1)Watch the 7 minute prequel Night of the Doctor starring Paul McGann first, it is a extra on this DVD along with the other mini episode The Last Day as it set's up events prior to this story.

What's Up Doc?
Something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; & somewhere in space, an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

Timelord Thoughts.
This 50th Anniversary story was never going to please every fan was it?
