A new blue tardis box, Mat Smith, and the intro music.....NOT A GOOD DECISION,
This review is from: Doctor Who -- The Complete Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
The story lines are ok but Mat Smith turning up in a brand new light blue TARDIS police box..... And the new intro music... to be honest it's just awful. The old TARDIS was the right colour a dark blue box with chipped corners and a few bumps and bruises bearing in mind it's been through a lot you would expect that. And an early 1900's police box wouldn't have perfectly sanded panels and a perfect paint job. The old TARDIS was just perfect. The intro music now sounds like it's been put together on a pc in 5 mins flat. And Mat Smith....well he's a nice guy for a children's TV show but not for the serious work of been an alien hero saving planets and everything else. For me the Dr Who series ended at the end of series 4.

and yet Matt Smith has been one the most well recieved Doctor's of all time... each on to their own, I guess.

I agree with you, Ray and Eileen; it's now rubbish, and the laziest writing I have ever come across. Matt Smith is all over the place; thank goodness Moffat didn't continue on Tintin - that is one film that my kids loved, and judging by his efforts in Sherlock and this pile of dingos kidneys, I'm glad he left when he did. It's hardly a surprise that almost the entire series development staff at the BBC left when Moffat took over.
I'm wondering if it is actually worth writing a review for this series; it's as though the reviewers here (apart form some REMARKABLE exceptions such as yourselves) are nothing more than the equivalent of Sun readers.

And that many replies to critical reviews seem to be attempts to shout down dissention.
