Product Description

The Doctor’s amazing adventures continue on DVD and Blu-ray with the fourth and final volume of the hugely popular fifth series, featuring the last four new episodes; Vincent and the Doctor, The Lodger, The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang.

Vincent and The Doctor sees our intrepid duo learning more about the art of terror in this new adventure where they meet the legendary painter Vincent Van Gogh! The TARDIS travels back in time but terror lurks in the cornfields of Provence and only a sad and lonely painter can see it... The Doctor and Amy join forces with Van Gogh but can the three of them defeat a powerful and deadly alien?

There’s a house on Aickman road, and a staircase that people go up, but never down in the episode The Lodger. To solve the mystery of the man upstairs, the Doctor must face his greatest challenge – he must pass himself off as a perfectly normal human being, and share a flat with Craig Owens.

In the PANDORICA OPENS, the Doctor and Amy learn that according to legend, the Pandorica contains the most feared being in all the cosmos, a monster soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. But what’s inside, and can even the Doctor stop it?

As the thrilling finale for Series 5, THE BIG BANG, begins The Doctor is gone, the TARDIS has been destroyed, and the universe is collapsing. The only hope for all of reality is a little girl who still believes in stars…

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 James Corden (Gavin & Stacey), Alex Kingston (ER), Daisy Haggard (Man Stroke Woman), Bill Nighy (State of Play) and Tony Curran (24)

Doctor Who Series 5 Volume 4 also features a behind-the-scenes look at the monsters from the collection in a Monster File extra entitled "The Alliance". Broken up roughly into three main parts this specially commissioned extra features a whole collection of monsters from the episode including Daleks, Cybermen, Autons, Sontarans, Judoon, Hoix, Silurians, Sycorax, Roboforms, Uvodni, Weevils, and a Blowfish as well as Amy's confrontation with the headless cyberman and Rory the Auton.

5.0 out of 5 stars This series definitely goes out with a bang 13 July 2010
Format:DVD
What I like about Steven Moffat's writing is how he plays on connotations so we all expect the 'Big Bang' to be a huge FX, all-exploding, loud finale while, infact most of the big bangs here are all felt inside and character driven. It's amazing that the ideas behind this finale are so huge on the sci- fi front but work eloquently on an intimate level too. Sublime stuff. Vincent's story was heartbreaking too. This really is 'the little show that can'!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic season finale! 30 Jun 2010
By dylan
Format:DVD
Amazing. The word that pretty much describes the finale. I loved that all the doctors previous foes returned in this
epic 2 part finale to in prison the doctor inside the Pandorica. The Scene where Amy is at her wedding and she begins to remember the doctor is a truly magical moment and one of the best moments of series 1-5, for me personally.
I recommend buying this DVD if you loved the finale, but then again, WHO DIDN'T!? I would just like to remind people that doctor who has barely lost any viewers, says the bbc. They say that "more people today are watching programmes on demand (that's true) and this series has been no exception. people don't want to miss doctor who and I'm sure it's going to be on our television screens for many, many years to come." I've loved every moment of this series (well, almost) and I hope you have to. ALSO I must say that i love the new Daleks, I loved this series and I can't wait for the Christmas special

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant end to a brilliant season! 20 Sep 2010
Format:DVD
Wow!!

The four episodes on this dvd are among the four best episodes ever made of the show since its creation way back in the 60's. Vincent and the Doctor is the most touching story I have ever seen on Doctor Who, and Tony Curran who plays Vincent was perfectly cast and incredibly moving. Matt Smith's performance in this one touched on the buffoon on one or two occasions, sadly, but made up for it magnificently otherwise, especially in the touching and heartwarming conclusion.

The Lodger introduced me to James Corden for the first time, and he made a nice job of it. The story itself was clever, although the resolution was rather idiotic in my opinion, but all the same the concept of the Doctor having to live a normal life for a few days and seeing him wrestle with ordinary day to day things was a scream. This episode I found hugely entertaining, and it left me with an intriguing question...Who was responsible for trying to build a Tardis on top of a house?

The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang, the two final episodes on this dvd....wow! Even the Doctor did not forsee that he himself was the terrible monster that was to be locked in the fabled Pandorica. Taking both episodes as one story, it was complex, to say the least, but the story was so well told and well shot in my opinion, that I for one had no trouble following it easily. The use of Stonehenge was awesome, and how ingenious to return to several of the Doctor's previous adventures during the finale. The Doctor's touching talk with Amy in the forest in episode 5 had stood out in my mind more than any other in that particular episode, and with the finale, we had the satisfaction of understanding very clearly why he was wearing his jacket, and exactly what he meant by "Remember!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spectacular Finale! Brilliant! 13 July 2010
By TT
Format:DVD
This disc contains 4 very solid episodes of 'Doctor Who'. 'The Doctor and Vincent' is on course to be the best Doctor story ever dealing with the subject of bi-polar disorder but alas it doesn't qualify because it is ruined by the the 'Giant Chicken' GCI!! For goodness' sakes if the monster was a metaphor for Van Gogh's depression surely, it could have been more subtle and disturbing and less garish and laughable? But a bloody good episode nevertheless. 'The Lodger' is simply lovely and even James Corden is watchable (because he's toned down) in it. One gripe here - the music drowned out the denouement so I couldn't work out why the snogging saved the day. 'The Pandorica Opens' - the writing (the title as well) just kept you well away from its reveal/cliffhanger, so well done Moff on yor literary skills there. Cracking stuff here - Daleks, Sontarans, Sycorax, Cybermen and Romans mix together well! BTW, easily contains the BEST Cyberman scene ever & the most poignant 'death' of a companion scene too! 'The Big Bang' by far is simply the most beautiful 'Doctor Who' story ever told. You just have to love it to bits. It's got complicated Timey-Wimey bits, alien explosions and intimate character moments to warm your cockles all at the same time. A I said before BRING ON SEASON 6!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Finale 27 Aug 2010
By KAT
Format:DVD
I know not everyone has taken to Matt Smiths 'New Who' - and honestly, that is up to them, they are entitled to their own opinion. But this is mine - The Finale of Doctor Who absoloutly rocked!!! I was expecting a CGI/special effect extravaganza, but in actual fact I was pleasently surprised, and I liked how the red-herrings cleverly scattered throughout the series were neatly tied up through the Doctors mononlogue to little Amelia (truly heartbreaking!!!) - while all the time keeping the 'silence will fall' element still hanging in the air.

I have to admit though, that while I did enjoy 'The Pandorica Opens' and 'The Big Bang' the real heartbreaker-tearjerking-crying-by-the-end episode was 'Vincent & The Doctor' - so cleverly written and thoroughly sad but heartwarmingly lovely all at the same time. Particularly that hearbreaking monologue at the end by Professor Black on why Vincent Van Gough was the greatest painter that ever lived. Tony Curren was amazing in his portrayal of the tortured genius and I really believe Richard Curtis who wrote the episode brought Manic Depression and Insanity to the forefront of the story in a way that made it understandable for the younger viewers. So wonderful and poignant was this episode that it stuck in my mind for days after and I couldn't get it out of my head. Definitly the new 'Blink' episode of Series 5.

The two finale episodes were also very good and equally poignant. Amy Ponds final 'Something old, Something New, Something Borrowed...Something Blue'[Cue TARDIS arrival] when she finally remembers The Doctor actually sent a shiver down my spine. I also liked the whole idea of the Pandorica housing the most dangerous thing that ever lived; 'The Monster Soaked in the Blood of a Thousand Galaxies'.
