Product Description

Product Description

The Doctor returns, alongside newly weds Amy and Rory, to face monsters and mysteries and adventures all across time and space, in a thrilling new series of Doctor Who. Together they’ll find themselves in sixties America, battling the invasion the world forgot, then journey on the high seas of 1696 aboard a pirate ship, to solve the mystery of the Siren. In a bubble universe at the very edge of reality, the Doctor will meet an old friend with a new face, and in a monastery on a remote island in the near future, an industrial accident will take on a terrible human shape. And waiting for them, at the end of all this, is the battle of Demon’s Run, and the Doctor’s darkest hour. Can even the truth about River Song save the Time Lord’s soul?

Only two things are certain. Silence will fall. And a good man is going to die…

The first part of series 6 is mostly featured by the best series opener ever. The Doctor's team comes to America in order to fight the Silence, River is back and most paramount revelations are eventually (and at long last!) revealed. Otherwise "The Curse of the Black Spot" might be the adventure that most fans would like to forget (with Amy's improbable sword fight against the pirates and the ridiculous nth death of Rory. In spite of thoe tiny mistakes the other episodes are quite good, if we talk about scripts, above all "The Doctor's Wife". The scriptwriter's originality gives us a brand new look of the relationship between the Doctor and his beloved spaceship. Episodes 5 and 6 are not so exceptional, still more enjoyable than episode 3. "A Good Man Goes To War" (episode 777 of the whole series) was as amazing as the two first episodes, despite the fact that the Doc didn't really fight like a soldier. This first part is essential for the series with an unforgettable beginning and an astonishing mid-series finale. It was generally good compared to series 5 and Tennant's era, few mistakes as episode 3 are made every year so we won't blame them for that, even though I confess there is a large difference of quality of the scripts with the last 6 episodes. To conclude, as I said in my part 2 DVD's review, don't buy that box if you didn't purchase the Christmas Carol DVD separately, I advise you to choose the complete series 6 box. Otherwise you are likely to be disappointed by the lack of special features (which are almost non-existent, except the little "monster files"). But the price is definitely not a problem.

They episodes were gripping, with terrific action and acting on parts of everybody. But the emphasis on horror came at the expense of humour, and the 'myth-arc' type of story-lines were too 'X-Files' type, leaving too many questions unanswered. These intriguing aspects make these episodes ideally suited for repeat-viewing, but I am already longing for stand-alone stories. Nevertheless, recommended.

Series 5 was not perfect but I cannot say that I did not enjoy all of the episodes. Some were stunning (Time Of Angels/Flesh and Stone and The Lodger). Some not so (The Beast Below, and the Silurian 2 parter - shame that one). But all were well written and structured and a lot of fun. The finale, while slightly confusing and actually without an end, was not boring and some of the material was some of the best TV around at the moment.

They were able to replicate this for the beginning of series 6. The opening 2 parter was just breathtaking, especially for a DW fan. What was going on? Dead Doctor, regenerating pre-teen? Very exciting stuff. And then they showed The Curse of the Black Spot. Ooargh. While I actually enjoyed it, it still felt considerably close to an iota of 'meh' in comparison to the eruption of what had preceded it.

'The Doctor's Wife' was better and was sufficiently Gaiman-esque. But it also felt like we were stepping away from the matter at hand. When you do something as audacious as kill off the Doctor you cannot waft about as if it hasn't happened on pirate ships and living asteroids with a talking TARDIS, no matter how entertaining. Which is why it was so difficult to enjoy the The Rebel Flesh/Almost People 2 parter. Again, it was a perfectly passable story and escapade. It was set perfectly and directed brilliantly but it was not answering any questions about what the flip was going on! Except at the end. And that was when the show started getting interesting again.

The cliff-hanger to episode 6/7 should have been the one that we would have had to wait until September to conclude. It was far better than the Melody/River Song/Pond silliness that we had all guessed anyway. However, the mid-series finale was rather exuberant and brilliant.

Series 5, Steven Moffat admitted, was Doctor Who: The Dark Fairytale; and it was. By the end of Series 5, Amelia Pond, the girl who waited, had waited long enough and was now traveling with The Doctor as a happily married woman with her husband and parents and the universe as it should be back into place. However, come Series 6... the nightmare begins.

Doctor Who has always been at its best when it isn't afraid to scare and Series 6 is definitely full of those moments. There are The Silence who are so terrifying you'll never remember them, the Ganger's who can steal your life or mutate into horrifying monsters and the never ending corridors inside a time machine that can't wait to kill you. In fact, Series 6 of Doctor Who is possibly the scariest the series has been since it returned in 2005.

Not only does Steven Moffat's second series deliver on the fear factor front, it also begins to unravel the bigger mysteries that have been haunting the mythos of the show since 2008 as we finally find out WHO River Song really is. Whilst giving us answers, the series also poses even more questions, with a major character being killed off within seconds of the first episode.

One of the series's major strong point is its design and tone, creating believable junkyard planets, asteroid army bases, futuristic acid monasteries and 16th century Pirate ships. The series has never looked more atmospheric and rich. Another triumph is the return of The Eleventh Doctor, Matt Smith, who continues to be astonishingly brilliant in the lead role. This year see's a Tardis team who are all keeping secrets from one another - who all know they really should have moved on by now.

In terms of the actual DVD content, unusually for early releases, contains 5.
