3.0 out of 5 stars Poor value for money, 29 April 2007
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Runaway Bride, 2006 Christmas Special [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the episode but the DVD as a whole is poor value. I'm a big fan of the vanilla releases as I'm not a huge admirer of extras on DVDs but this release was just a huge disappointment for me. One episode (albeit an hour long instead of the usual forty-five minutes) selling at the same price of a release with 3 is just daylight robbery and the addition of the DW Confidential Special is a poor substitute for further episodes. At least last year's Christmas Special had "New Earth" with it too.

On a slightly more positive note David Tennant was usual exceptional self, Catherine Tate wasn't the nightmare I was dreading and the Empress of the Racnoss was a truly impressive creation. But I'm sorry Amazon, until this one drops in price I won't be partaking of it, completist even though I am.

Either Amazon has put wrongly put different product's reviews together (which i have seen before) or the reviewer has commented on the wrong product. This one has a 90 minute 2-parter (Rise of the Cybermen/Age of Steel) and a standard 45min episode (Idiot's Lantern), exactly the same as a standard box. The price is clearly far less now, but I still recommend buying the box set for best possible value.
