Doctor Who Series 6 was Matt Smith's second series in the role of the Doctor, and also Steven Moffat's second series as head writer, and it is around Series 6 Part 2 that his writing begins to get worse. This does not hold the series down though as it is a great series and I still enjoyed it. The Sixth Series is a continuation from Series 5 and I advise buying that series before buying this one.

This Series comprises of 14 Episodes, the first being the Christmas Special, 'A Christmas Carol,' which is personally my second favourite Christmas story Matt Smith has done, The Doctor The Widow & The Wardrobe being last on that list.

A Christmas Carol - Amy Pond and Rory Williams are trapped on a crashing space liner, and the only way the Eleventh Doctor can rescue them is to save the soul of a lonely old miser. But is Kazran Sardick, the richest man in Sardicktown, beyond redemption? And what is lurking in the fogs of Christmas Eve? This is a lighthearted story with amazing writing and goodly written characters, and some scenery in this story really makes the Doctor look like an authoritative figure, and most certainly a Time Lord. However, the story is not perfect and there are a few plot holes here and there, that are never explained. I also have a problem with the villain of this story, a massive shark that can swim through air. While this concept is pretty interesting and the CGI is definitely good, it is very underused and could of been better, and it's one of the weakest villains of Series 6 (though it later befriends the characters later on in the story.)

The Impossible Astronaut / Day of the Moon - Amy Pond, Rory Williams, River Song and the Eleventh Doctor receive a mysterious summons that takes them on an adventure to 21st century Utah and Florida in 1969.

I have to say that my favourite doctor is David Tennant (sorry, Matt), but these way over the top tuned episodes are worth watching nontheless. Having said that I have to add that I find the continuing storyline a bit boring but also annoying. Still - great fun.

If your kids/ friends/ Jim The Fish are going to want Series 6 for Christmas, order this great 'Silent variant' with exclusive postcards now: mean spirited stockpilers have form in buying up these lovely limited editions, then charging three times the price only months later (eg Series 3's 'Master variant'). The 3D Silent head itself isn't just holographic; it's sculpted card, and leans out menacingly.

Moffat planned a "fairytale": after the "rollercoaster" of Series 5, Series 6 is the "ghost train". We're fully immersed in the lives of the travellers, each with their own compelling battles ahead. While I don't agree with those who've labelled this series "overcomplicated", in its ambition it has sometimes lost coherency (ie I understand what the characters have done and when, but I've not always been convinced by their supposed motives). However, the verdict is overwhelmingly positive. You will have your own reactions to the episodes; these are merely mine.

The Special
A Christmas Carol: 8 -thin stuff but fun. Yet more Dickens/Victoriana and sometimes sickly sweet, but clever and with some lovely touches.

The Episodes
The Impossible Astronaut/Day of the Moon: 9 -irresistable imagery (space race, Oval Office, Mad Men, haunted house), truly scary aliens & two of the greatest openings in the show's history. Few too many loose ends but a great cliffhanger.

The Curse of the Black Spot: 7 -fun & feisty romp marred only by Hollywood pirates & a soppy father/son subplot (the first of many this year!). Cole is great & the Moffat-inspired sci-fi twist is neat.

The Doctor's Wife: 10 -a note perfect fan pleaser resembling a graphic novel by Samuel Beckett.

I grew up loving Doctor who (Sylvester McCoy being the doctor i grew up with) and when it returned in 2005, I liked it but never really took any interest. then David Tennant took over. started watching them. Then stopped watched David Tennants last spin (end of time) which I thought was brilliant. watched the first few episodes of the new incantation that was Matt Smith again stopped watching. But for some reason something keeps pulling me back. so Got Doctor Who series 6 on blu ray. And I loved it. Part of me thought I shouldn't be liking this i'm 32 years old and into dark stuff. (dark as in being adult series like walking dead, hell on wheels, the wire, supernatural, house) but it appears Doctor Who has won me back. I don't know if I should be embaressed or not. But I don't care. This series wasn't too CBBC for me. It wasn't too childish. It had its moments of course (well it is Doctor who) But I liked the underlining story arc to this series. Stephen Moffat has done a good job. I think Russel Davies run was good. But it appears This Doctor who does have a kind of darker edge to it. Now I'm not going into this whole who was better Tennant or SMith. As you can't. As you know Doctor Who when he re-generates his personality changes too. so SO Smith's Doctor is much different to the doctor that David Tennant played. So what's the point in comparing them really. granted you can prefer one over the other. Just started watching series 7 well the first 5 episodes anyway. The theme music as always brings a smile on my face reminds me of sitting in my room when i was a lil boy. watching the Doctor and his companion Ace run around on their adventures and me sitting mesmerized. Though of course Doctor who doesnt have the same effect on me now that it did. But it's a great British Science fiction show.Read more ›
