5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing as always 2 April 2011
By mrs b
I don't get with all the Matt Smith haters, he is a great doctor. Alright i prefere DT but MS comes a close secord and is great. Volume 3 is the weakest out of all the volumes but its still great. Amy's Choise is amazing and it really shows what a wonderful actress Karen Gillen is. I would give it 4.5 mainly because i feel Cold Blood is a bit slow but it really picks up at the end and has a great twist.

Amy's Choice: A pregnant Amy Pond faces a terrible choice. Or does she? All is not as it seems...

The Hungry Earth: The reptilian Silurians are the former rulers of Earth - and they want their planet back!

Cold Blood: Mankind and the Silurians teeter on the brink of all-out war.

3.0 out of 5 stars Of Dream Lords and Silurians! 6 Sep 2010
Well, if you've already seen the original broadcasts then you will already be wise to the three episodes (7, 8 and 9 ). This is half-way through the series. Personally I like the darkness of Amy's Choice and its denouement and the foretelling the demise of one of the main characters. Toby Jones gives a wonderful performance as the menacing Dream Lord? But Who is he?

The Silurian story ( The Hungry Earth, Cold Blood) might give the Silurians more depth and complexity than previous incarnations, maybe humanising them a bit too much in my view, but even Silurians involve, I suppose! Myra Syral is very good as the geophysicist and her ending unexpected!

If you buy all the new series DVDs as released as I do then you will already have bought or about to buy it. Amy's Choice is definitely better than the Silurian episodes. I'm sure some Dr. Who fans appreciate some stories more than others.

Make up your own mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 5 - Out with a Big Bang 28 Jun 2010
Three wonderful episodes on this volume so if you don't plan on getting the full series, I would at least recommend this one and the Time of Angels two-parter. Amy's Choice was a myterious episode and had bit of the classic who feel about it. Toby Jones was some inspired casting for the character of the Dreamlord and played it quite well.

The Hungry Earth seemed a bit filler-ish for the conclusion, "Cold Blood." But nevertheess, it's worth watching as it reintroduced a new tribe of Silurians - although personally, I preferred the others. More alien-like, you see.

Cold Blood contains a balance of action and diplomacy. On the one hand, the Silurian military prepare to take over the Earth, on the other, Amy helps in negotiating peace between the two owners of the planet. But with a cry of "EXECUTE HER!" it swings into gear as the Eleventh Dctor gleefully announces that it's squeeky bum time. But I wasn't prepared for what was to come and change the course of the series...


The following review contains SPOILERS for the Doctor Who Series 5 finale and should be viewed with caution. You have been warned....





Alas, "The Big Bang" has aired and Series 5 has come to a close. In retrospect, I have really, really enjoyed this series. Full of Doctor quirks fabulously pulled off by Matt Smith. Anyone still not rating him against previous doctors needs to ride off on their high horse and stick with repeats.

"It's a fez... I wear a fez now... fezzes are cool."

One of the great features of this series for me, was, the ending. For the first time in New Who history - we got a happy ending. No deaths, no sadness, no loss.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boxed Set v individual discs 3 Jan 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a set of individual discs instead of the Series 5 boxed set because it was a bit cheaper. My daughter is now upset because they won't 'fit' with the rest of the Dr Who boxed sets she has. It would have been worth the extra money to avoid the moaning - Dr Who fans are clearly more OCD than the average punter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who - Series 5 2 Aug 2011
Loved it, even though I am a die-hard David Tennant fan. Carries on in the spirit of Dr Who
and the stories are fresh and fun.
