It's rare I get to review anything from Matt Smith's era of `Doctor Who'. But for this occasion, I've decided to review on the latest series of episodes from the new series. Here is `Series 7 Part 1', a collection of five episodes chronicling the final adventures of Amy Pond (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) with the Doctor (Matt Smith) before they depart leaving travelling the TARDIS behind them forever. These episodes were transmitted during the Autumn of 2012 from August to September. This is a 2 disc collection, with the first three episodes on Disc 1 and the last two on Disc 2.

DISC 1

`ASYLUM OF THE DALEKS'

NB: Watch `Pond Life' and `Asylum of the Daleks Prequel' on Disc 2 before this.

The first episode of this series, features the return of the Doctor's old foes - the Daleks. And they come back in their dignified glory, and in proper design compared to how they looked horrible in their previous outing 'Victory of the Daleks' (though some of the new paradigm Daleks appear in this episode). Also apparently in this episode, there is return of classic Daleks from the classic days of `Doctor Who' such as the Special Weapons Dalek in `Remembrance' and some Dalek designs from the first Dalek story; `Planet'; `Genesis' and `Remembrance'. Sadly for me, there was little time and little light to see these Daleks properly in full view. But some references to the Doctor's previous encounters such as `Kembel', `Spiridon' and `Vulcan' are mentioned.

In this story, the Doctor responds to a summons to Skaro - the now dead planet of the Daleks. The summons is from a woman called Karla who needs the Doctor's help in rescuing her daughter.

Well, series 7 has divided fans, that's for sure. One first watch, I think it's fair to say that I found that most of the episodes were good rather than great. I miss the cliffhangers and within 45 minutes it's no possible to make good on the promise of 'a film a week'. But these stories are growers. Second and third time around, there's more to appreciate - perhaps a little more maturity in the storytelling and a little less self-consciousness. Matt Smith remains for me a great Doctor, one of the best of all time, working wonders with pretty much any material he's given. Rory and Amy go down as a classic set of companions, while Clara introduces a mystery that's as old as the Doctor's travels, without getting in the way of each episode's progress. If Doctor Who suffers from anything these days, it's too much hype and publicity - Asylum of the Daleks was only disappointing after Moffat's continued cries of "every Dalek ever!!". Watched with that set aside, it's a terrific Dalek episode. A great start to the series that leads us into the Doctor's 50th anniversary. On blu-ray, the image and sound are cracking.

I have to say that my favourite doctor is David Tennant (sorry, Matt), but these way over the top tuned episodes are worth watching nontheless. Having said that I have to add that I find it annoying that season 7 is presented first in two box sets and one christmas special only to be released a few months later in a new package containing it all. Please leave that kind of picking the fans pockets to the americans...

Doctor Who returns after a while to present us with another half and half season, this time with Christmas as the bridging point. After the excellent and complicated Series 6 with the most prominent story arc in the show's history, Steven Moffat and co. presents us with a five part series, five blockbusters of Doctor Who giving us things we could only dream of, Insane Daleks,Dinosaurs, a Western and the return of the Weeping Angels. Is this series good? Oh yes, this one is good, epic stories, big characters, a constantly changing title sequence and some real highlights. Let's begin.

Episode 1: Asylum of the Daleks 8/10
As you no doubt have seen this episode had a lot if images showing ever Dalek design in Doctor Who history. If you expect this to have any impact on the story, you will be disappointed. There's about three of four brief shots of the past Daleks and they do barely anything in the story. But that's really the only major negative. The premise is that the Daleks abduct the Doctor on Skaro and force him and his companions to take out a force field on their planetary asylum so they can finally blow it up after keeping it around for the admiration of their pure hatred. Meanwhile down below, a survivor of a crash, Oswin (Jenna Louise Coleman, the next companion in a surprising cameo), finds out about our intrepid heroes and gives them a helping hand in getting around a mainly dormant asylum. As the Doctor and Amy fight off the Dalek's new minions (in one of the most disturbing elements in the Dalek arsenal) Rory meets the Daleks who are now waking up and remembering they are scary again. As the Doctor races to get them off and Oswin out, Rory and Amy seem to be in a divorce position and tensions run high as Amy faces a potential end to her humanity.
