Product Description

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Three of the best so far! 14 July 2010
By KAT
Format:DVD
Judging by the 'Marmite' reception that this series has recieved, I know that this review won't be popular with everyone. Oh well, here goes anyway. These three episodes, including the later episodes of Amy's Choice and Vincent and The Doctor, were my three favourites of the series - and why? Because in two of the three episodes the scariest Who enemies of the modern revamp are back - Move over Daleks - The Weeping Angels are back!

Episode 1: The Time of Angels; The Bazantium space ship has crashed to earth and the returning River Song (reprised by the fantastic Alex Kingston)and her army of Soldiers need the Doctors help. Trapped in the cargo hold of the Bazanthium is the last of the Weeping Angels. When Amy is left inside the control room, she is given one instruction by the Doctor - Don't Blink - but little does Amy know that not blinking at all could leave her in even deadlier peril. As the trapped crew search desperatly for a way out, they realise that their only hope is through the terrifying Maze of the Dead. With the trapped Angel causing havoc, the Doctor suddenly realises that the simple stone statues that surround them are not the long-dead population of the planet - they are The Weeping Angels themselves! Hemmed in and surrounded by a terrifying maze of decaying Angels, how will the Doctor and his companions survive this terrifying ordeal? The Doctors spine-tingling "One thing that you should never put in a trap" speech at the end of this episode was the moment that Matt Smith officially became the 11th Doctor for me and was only hampered by that bloody animated Graham Norton dancing across the screen! Agggggh!

5.0 out of 5 stars WARNING! CONTAINS IMAGE OF AN ANGEL 25 Jun 2010
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smith continues... 18 Jun 2010
By R. Thomas VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
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.
