This review is from: Doctor Who -- The Complete Series 5 [DVD] (DVD)
After sitting through most of the gap year, being told that this series would be the best yet - I knew that the only thing it could do, was fail to live upto that.
And sure enough - it completely failed
Started ok enough with Eleventh Doctor, but the rest were poor.
Beast Below - average
Victory of the Daleks - the Doctor had MORE than enough time to stop the Daleks as well
Angels two parter - ruined the Angels
then made sure we knew that there would be 6 pointless episodes before the finale
Vampires in venice - average, but hey at least it's building on the Amy/Rory relationship - which will probably start the crack (as seen in the angels story)
Amy's Choice - average, but hey at least it's building on the Amy/Rory relationship - which will probably start the crack (as seen in the angels story)
Silurians two parter -nope there going to kill Rory making the last two episodes pointless.
Vincent and the Doctor - doesn't mention the crack at all
the lodger - nearly the same thing - except for a few short seconds at the end
Finale - Steven Moffat apparently gets away with pretending two companions have died - gets away with a DEM (think about the doctor and he'll come back) gets away with several cop outs
- if RTD had done this, there would have been an uproar!
So yes - poor season overall.
