The Doctor’s amazing adventures continue on DVD and Blu-ray with the second volume of the hugely popular fifth series, featuring the next three episodes; the thrilling two-part story, written by Steven Moffat, - The Time of Angels and Flesh and Stone - as well as The Vampires of Venice. Full of new characters and some familiar monsters, Volume 2 is released on July 5th, priced at £15.99.

Get ready for the re-appearance of some recognisable faces in the two-part story of this time-travelling drama. A crashed spaceship, a shattered temple and a terrifying climb through the maze of the dead - River Song is back in the Doctor's life, and she's brought more trouble than even he can handle. The last of the Weeping Angels is loose in the ruins of Alfava Metraxis, and the Doctor is recruited to track it down. "Don't blink!" everyone tells Amy - but as Amy is about to discover, not blinking might just be the worst thing you can do…

In the final episode on this fantastical volume, journey to Venice where even danger is beautiful. The House of Calvierri has the whole city under its protection, but something is very wrong. There are blood-drained corpses in the street, something lurks in the canal, and the Calvierri girls are the loveliest in town, except when you glance in the mirror…

Starring Matt Smith as the eleventh Doctor and Karen Gillan as Amy Pond, this exciting new series also guest stars a wealth of British acting talent including Alex Kingston (Doctor Who, ER), Iain Glen (Law and Order UK) and Helen McCrory (Harry Potter).

Doctor Who Series 5 Volume 2 also features a behind the scenes look at the monsters from the collection including an up close look at the terrifying Weeping Angels - whatever you do don’t blink!

Don't Blink! You don't want to miss a second of these amazing episodes.

Steven Moffat has triumphed in his two parter, 'Time of Angels' and 'Flesh and Stone' which sees not only the return of the creepy Weeping Angels (first seen in 2007's 'Blink') but also welcomes back Alex Kingston as the complex, timey wimey River Song. The Doctor and Amy are recruited by Doctor River Song and an army of clerics to search the crash of the Byzantium for the lone Weeping Angel trapped inside it. However things soon turn sinister as Amy learns the dreadful truth that even an image is powerful and Clerics begin to get their necks snapped. Soon The Doctor discovers it's not the Weeping Angel that's trapped, it's him! The Doctor and his friends are stuck in the maze of the dead surrounded by Angels, but there's one thing you never put in a trap - and it's him.
In what is the most cinematic episode of Doctor Who ever, Adam Smith directs beautifully, with the pace and action continuous and flowing wonderfully with Steven Moffat's juicy script. Matt Smith (incredibly this the very first episode he filmed) shows the more brooding, serious side of his Doctor and Alex Kingston returns with a much feistier River Song, with a more electric chemistry with this Doctor than the last.

'Flesh and Stone' picks up where the last episode left us with our jaws hitting the floor, and doesn't disappoint! The Angels are winning, Amy has seconds to live, The Doctor is helpless. It's a race against time inside the ruins of the Byzantium and the action doesn't stop! We soon learn the terrible truth of the crack in Amy's bedroom wall and that River Song isn't a woman to be trusted.
The conclusion is a satisfying one but with so many more secrets and revelations yet to be discovered.

Moving on from the first volume we have the next two stories compromising the seasons first two parter The Time of Angels and one parter The Vampires of Venice.

The Time of Angels has everything I want in a Who story and I firmly believe this story will go down as one of the greats. Moffat brings back two of his toys from the previous era in River Song (wonderfully played by Alex Kingston) and the Weeping angels who are turned up to 11. This story has no central set or location and starts off in all places a museum and after the hectic James Bond style opener catapults the regulars into the plot. Despite this being the first story filmed I think this is Matt Smiths best performance also of note is Iain Glen who is understated and wonderfully noble as Octavian. Keep your eyes peeled as there's a few moments that look to be linked to a later episode.

The Vampires of Venice is unfortunately a fairly weak episode, in my opinion the best qualities are the location work and an all round good performance by the cast who rise above the script they've been given. Also its got pretty girls with sharp teeth! The main huge faults in this are the direction and the script. Of note is Rory from The Eleventh Hour becoming a companion who is likeable in a bumbling way.

Both stories look like they foreshadow the end of season finale (which as I type has yet to be broadcast) with the cracks and some comments by the various villains. All in all four stars as Time of the Angels is so good it makes up for Vampires.

matt smith and karen gillan continue to impress in these 3 episodes. matt smith's in his stride as the doctor now. to me he comes across as a cross between patrick troughton, tom baker and david tennant while karen gillan is excellent as amy, one of the best companions ever. the 2 part story with the weeping angels is matt smith's first classic, and is one of the best of the series. the added bonus on the dvd being you hopefully wont get the annoying over the rainbow ad at the end of part one! the weeping angels are the best monsters that the new series has created and are destined to stand alongside the daleks and cybermen as all time classic monsters. the episode also sees the return of the excellent and mysterious river song, and the episode strongly hints that in the future she may end up not only becoming the doctor's wife, but that she might also murder him. vampires in venice is very silly but good fun. loved the doctor gate crashing rory's stag night! 3 excellent episodes.

The first two parter of series 5 turned out to be fantastic, the first episode may of dragged slightly but i'll overlook that minor detail. Although the weeping angel two-parter was great, it didn't over shadow vampires of Venice, as others thought it would. But once again they were proven wrong. I am enjoying the series a lot and were almost at the finale. May i remind everyone that this series has had a lower budget than previous series, as the BBC didn't know if people would like the new doctor or the new series for that matter. But they were proven wrong. o i'm guessing that next series is going to be more action packed as was series 1-4, and this series too (but this series is a little talkative if you get what I mean)
