4.0 out of 5 stars Would have like more extras 25 Jan 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A good movie-styled episode.
The Only criticism is that John hurt wasn't that "evil" or "war-like" as he was described to be.I would have preferred a bit more action and for Moffat to stop making monsters friendly!!! e.g sontarans,silurians,zygons,hide creature...errghhh don't get me wrong, I love strax but if ever I saw a sontaran again I would think they are harmless!

Would have been nice to see all the extras from the convention in London though including the 5 drs reboot

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.

23rd November 2013

It's strange to think how much time has passed since that very date. We've had the 50th anniversary. It's come and gone. So much happened in the lead up to that very special day in Doctor Who's history as well as the actual day and night that happened with all of its celebrations. I was away in Chichester for the anniversary weekend when I watched what was on that very night.

Before I go on to talk about `The Day of the Doctor', have a look at this.

THE NIGHT OF THE DOCTOR

Watch this before you watch `The Day of the Doctor'

I was not expecting this in the two weeks leading up to `The Day of the Doctor'. I found out about this little prequel on the Big Finish website and saw the announcement of something they recommended us Big Finish Doctor Who fans watching as it's something we would enjoy. I'm not one for watching `prequels' before the actual episode, but for this occasion and as it was the 50th anniversary, I took my chances and decided to watch it. Not knowing what was to come, there's the surprise appearance of a returning Doctor. Who am I talking about? Paul McGann returns to play the Eighth Doctor in his second official TV appearance since he did the 'TV Movie'. Yes! Paul McGann is the Doctor! Probably not the one we were expecting!

I got to watch this six-minute special prequel over and over again on the BBC Red Button service in the lead up to the 50th anniversary special. The story is straight-forward. The Eighth Doctor rescues a woman pilot on a crash-landing ship named Cass, whom he befriends and takes her away.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great story, but blu ray has sound issues. 4 Dec 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I absolutely loved THE DAY OF THE DOCTOR and was looking forward to owning it on blu ray. Watched it tonight and it appears the quality control folks were off having a tea break when the audio for this was being put together. It sounds fine via a 5.1 surround set up, but appalling via television stereo speakers. The best way I can describe it is that the music takes on a tinny, warbly effect that is very distracting. There's definitely a problem here that needs to be addressed. I've read of the same complaints reported elsewhere so hopefully people will let the BBC know and something will be done to get this issue sorted and replacement discs issued.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great knowing winks. 6 Dec 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
After the chore of season 6 - with the gradual redemption in season 7, This is Stephen Moffat back on form. I loved how he took various criticisms of the Doctor's sometimes puerile behaviour and weaved it with humour into the show. 'The man who regrets and the man who forgets' summed it up greatly. And standing up against the deservedly well-loved portrayal of David Tennant's Doctor and John Hurt's solid and stalwart acting credentials - hats off to Matt Smith in this 50th anniversary. I now realise in compare and comparison, he really has made the Doctor his own. Therefore in some ways now. it's such a shame he's going just when he's put a stamp on it. As for the Blu-Ray 3D. Some scenes work well in 3D. Other's just appear quite 2D. But that's the curse of setting and circumstance I suppose? And considering all the 50th anniversary spin offs from Blue Peter to a Peter Davidson documentary, such a celebration was deserved of a bumper Extra-Extra's edition with this disc. But alas we don't even get a commentary. Just trailers, a quick behind the scenes and Doctor Who explained for an American audience. That said - this Tv movie feel of Dr Who is an instant classic.
