5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Series 9 29 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
I ordered this DVD next week, and was delighted to find it had arrived by Christmas 2007. Capaldi absolutely nails the role, and Steven Moffat plays an eerily frightening Valeyard, even if the casting choice seems a little dubious. The return of Davros was handled superbly, the series arc was remarkably well-plotted, and the Kandyman's comeback was as terrifically shot as Series 12's "Vengeance of that Seaweed-looking Thing from that episode Pertwee or someone probably did" (a stand-out gem in a series which generally seemed as though they'd just stopped trying). 5/5, would definitely Capaldi again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A long-forgotten gem 29 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
Imagine the thrill that must have gone through the circuits of the World Service's aerial archivoid drone when it spotted an old-style analog "digital video thing" frozen in antarctic permafrost. This season has been on Doctor Who fans' "most-wanted lost serials" ever since its accidental loss in a routine vaultpurge in October 2088, and now at last it has been found!

Highlights include: the famous Terrible Zodin two-parter - recently named DWM's least worst serial of the first 100 year of the show; the Ice Warriors' feeble Christmas pantomime; the first appearance of the new TARDIS interior (smaller on the inside, that goof having FINALLY been corrected); and the famously horrific Easter special "Revenge of the Dinosaur", in which the Doctor is teleportally merged with previous companion Jamie McCrimmon, now aged 146. Plus, we can finally see the surviving "Young Davros" speech in its proper (and sexy!) context, in the powerful season finale "Time-Swim / Elephantiasis of the Daleks".

As with many of these old BBC digidisks during the Moffat era, there are menu options to switch off the female characters.

NOTE: Although most of the actual episodes survive in colour, Peter Capaldi himself is only in black & white, and Gemma Louise-Colman has had to be reconstructed from stills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant from start to finish 2 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
When I realised I could purchase this before It had been broadcast I was overjoyed. But not as overjoyed as I was in the dramatic series final when Peter Capaldi travelled back to visit Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The best part had to be when he held him at gunpoint, forcing him to write Sherlock Holmes and John Watson as a gay couple who adopt many children. The Doctor then has all intentions of whizzing forward in time after to watch Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman re-enact the books on the series BBC Sherlock.

However The Doctor is held up on this task as River Song appears in the TARDIS claiming she's given birth to The Doctor's child. Whilst Capaldi responds with his typical catchphrase of "F***ITY BYE" he has the TARDIS fling both her and the child into the time vortex.

Can't wait for this years christmas special 'The Child of The Doctor' to pick up where the series left off.

Only thing I wasn't too keen on this series was the progressive storyline of Clara falling in love with a Judoon her and The Doctor meet in episode 1. However I did shed a tear at the emotional scene in which she announced she was leaving The Doctor to travel alone so she and the Judoon could start a life together.

Overall, was a brilliant series.

I'm now off to order Sherlock series 4, can't thank Amazon enough for this new feature of pre-ordering things before they are broadcast!

I'd give details but by crossing my time stream I would create a temporal paradox that could crack the very fabric of time and space. Spoilers, sweetie!

I ordered this on Tuesday morning with Next Day delivery. Not arriving on Wednesday I was perplexed, and then informed that it was a pre-order and that I would only receive this set upon release date. Not content with this I contacted a lawyer friend and due to an obscure piece of EU legislature Amazon were strongarmed into using their new delivery service that they haven't even invented yet, AmazonTime. By using what they refer to as a 'Type 40 Time Capsule' you can now get your items BEFORE you've even ordered them! Where will they go next?! Anyway, I now have this set in my hands!

Having watched it all I can say it is an absolute hoot! The Peter Jackson directed 'Indictment of the Daleks: Part 1', 'Indictment of the Daleks: Part 2 - Part 1' and 'Indictment of the Daleks: Part 2 - Part 2' is a captivating 9-hour story set between the hours of 4pm and 5pm.

Other highlights include, 'Lets Kill Osama', a story set in 1066 with absolutely no references to Osama Bin Laden whatsoever and the two-part 'Quarry Quandary' which is set entirely in a quarry in Wales, filmed on location in Singapore.

Also, the revelation of The Doctor's real name being Steven Moffat came as a huge surprise!

Bonus features include a reconstruction of the 'Lost' Episode 9, the only copy of which deleted from Steven Moffat's laptop by Caroline Skinner, who's portrayal of The Rani is an absolute delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Toppers. 29 Jan 2014
Format:DVD
I have to say. The surprise regeneration of Capaldi into Steven Moffat was an absolute shocker. Really the highlight of the series. Excellent television.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good. 1 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
An excellent series for Peter Capaldi as the twelfth doctor. I wish he would have stayed a bit longer though, I was dissapointed when he regenerated into will.I.am. Jenna Coleman plays Clara brilliantly and so does William Hartnell as the first doctor, who joined the series halfway through with the invention of actual time travel by Russell t Davies. The new tardis interior however is confusing, as I thought it was the interior of the original starship enterprise. 7/10.
