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.

Well first off i ordered this under the free delievery service and it arrived within 2 days, so am extremely pleased. The box set comes in the same style as season 5, which is nice, easy to distingish on the shelf.

As for the season itself it is phenomonal! I really enjoyed it. There are many two part episodes but actually i would say it is more like a running series, as some even continue after the second episode. It is a very intense and dark story right throughout leading up to the discovery of who River Song actually is and what it is she actually does, very compelling. Plus of course it also comes one step closer to the question that surrounds the mistery of The Doctor, Doctor Who? I would say that if your a Whovian you should have a pretty good idea of what the Doctors name is by now, i sure do! In the episode called The God Complex, Amy asks the doctor a question about his faith and who he worships and his face reveals alot about who he is, it is very sutble, blink and you'll miss it.

All in all a fantastic storyline and can not wait to have the entire seventh season to stand next to the rest of my Dr Who collection.

As a Doctor Who fan of almost 40 yrs of age I feel very happy to report that I feel this has been the strongest, most consistent season since Phillip Hinchcliffe and Bob Holmes were in charge and the mighty Tom Baker was the Doctor. I dont include the frankly NAFF Christmas Special we got this year in the season, although we do get it on this boxset, but it cant detract from the deliciously dark series of stories that were to come.

Highlights for me were the impressive opening 2 parter, the AMAZING The Doctors Wife (please please more from Gaiman!!)the old school Rebel Flesh/Almost People, the barnstorming A Good Man Goes To War, the bonkersly brilliant Lets Kill Hitler, kinda creepy Night Terrors, the emotional Girl Who Waited and the usual clever wrap up from the Gand Moff in The Wedding of River Song.

The other stories of the season are Closing Time which seemed a bit filler for me with Cybermen just tagged into it for no reason really, Curse of the Black Spot which was a fairly bog standard runaround and the unsettling yet somewhat unsatisfying God Complex. The only slight irritation for me is just how much the demise of the Doctor is built up, right from the very first episode, even though filming of the Christmas episode had begun as this aired so WE KNOW he's not going to really die! And the fact is, hes been around for 50 years now. He aint gonna die that easily.

But all in all the strongest season since classic Who and certainly since it came back in 2005.

And just a quick note on the additional extras weve been told of so far....additional scenes and prequels are cool, confidential is essential viewing, the comic relief sketches are brief but cool but why oh why only 4 commentaries?!?!?!?!
