Well first off i ordered this under the free delievery service and it arrived within 2 days, so am extremely pleased. The box set comes in the same style as season 5, which is nice, easy to distingish on the shelf.

As for the season itself it is phenomonal! I really enjoyed it. There are many two part episodes but actually i would say it is more like a running series, as some even continue after the second episode. It is a very intense and dark story right throughout leading up to the discovery of who River Song actually is and what it is she actually does, very compelling. Plus of course it also comes one step closer to the question that surrounds the mistery of The Doctor, Doctor Who? I would say that if your a Whovian you should have a pretty good idea of what the Doctors name is by now, i sure do! In the episode called The God Complex, Amy asks the doctor a question about his faith and who he worships and his face reveals alot about who he is, it is very sutble, blink and you'll miss it.

All in all a fantastic storyline and can not wait to have the entire seventh season to stand next to the rest of my Dr Who collection.

Love it, love it, love it. The more I see of Matt Smith the better I like him in the role of the Doctor. Series 6 has to be one of the best so far. The Amy, Rory, River Song story has developed brilliantly and I just love the episode, "The Wedding of River Song" If you haven't watched this do so immediately.

When doctor Who started it was enjoyable and as time went had very little money spent on it,of cause effects were not great as computers had not been invented. As time went on the BBC fell out of love with it and then cancelled it, in hind sight it did need a rest and a re-think.
Sixteen years later and only one TV movie and the programme I loved as a child came back bigger and better, now loved by the BBC and loved by the public, and with a smile on my face and with the knowledge that I always loved it right up to the end, and now knowing a whole knew generation are in love with the programme as well. I except not every episode is brilliant, but the programme is polished very well acted in every case, shot like a movie, even Catherine Tate was an amazement and I had doubts of her casting.
Then came Steven Moffet and Matt Smith and the roller-coaster ride continued. I have to admit that The stories in season five and six are not as straight forward and those from the Russell T Davis years, and to be honest having watched everything again I seem to be able to understand the somewhat complicated story lines better.
So can I recommend Who for a new generation, well yes Matt Smith has all the charm of David Tennett but the quirkiness of Patrick Troughton an excellent actor and a great choice, Karen Gillian is just excellent as Amy Pond and Alex Kingston as Riversong again is such a great casting. What i find amazing is that every companion so far has been a thrill to watch, If you are new to the show and have just never watched the new series I would urge you to watch.

If your kids/ friends/ Jim The Fish are going to want Series 6 for Christmas, order this great 'Silent variant' with exclusive postcards now: mean spirited stockpilers have form in buying up these lovely limited editions, then charging three times the price only months later (eg Series 3's 'Master variant'). The 3D Silent head itself isn't just holographic; it's sculpted card, and leans out menacingly.

Moffat planned a "fairytale": after the "rollercoaster" of Series 5, Series 6 is the "ghost train". We're fully immersed in the lives of the travellers, each with their own compelling battles ahead. While I don't agree with those who've labelled this series "overcomplicated", in its ambition it has sometimes lost coherency (ie I understand what the characters have done and when, but I've not always been convinced by their supposed motives). However, the verdict is overwhelmingly positive. You will have your own reactions to the episodes; these are merely mine.

The Special
A Christmas Carol: 8 -thin stuff but fun. Yet more Dickens/Victoriana and sometimes sickly sweet, but clever and with some lovely touches.

The Episodes
The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon: 9 -irresistable imagery (space race, Oval Office, Mad Men, haunted house), truly scary aliens & two of the greatest openings in the show's history. Few too many loose ends but a great cliffhanger.

The Curse of the Black Spot: 7 -fun & feisty romp marred only by Hollywood pirates & a soppy father/son subplot (the first of many this year!). Cole is great & the Moffat-inspired sci-fi twist is neat.

The Doctor's Wife: 10 -a note perfect fan pleaser resembling a graphic novel by Samuel Beckett.
