And the kids have spoken...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - Series 4 Volume 3 [DVD] (DVD)
We have recently completed the Series 4 DVD collection in the Martin household at the request of my eldest daughter; this being the final DVD we purchased.
Steven Moffatt certainly has a compelling style about his work, which is evident throughout the many episodes he has penned for both the Doctor Who series as well as BBC2's brilliant sitcom, Coupling.
But despite my personal opinions of the episodes on this DVD, I think the real judges have spoken - that being my daughters who, out of all four series and 17 Doctor Who DVDs, keep putting this one into the player (Dad can we watch the Library ones again please? Then I want to watch Midnight...!)
The introduction of Prof River Song opened up a whole new enigmatic saga for the Doctor to explore in later series, providing that will and urge to want to follow later series to see how the whole thing unfolds - just like I want to know exactly what the Doctor did to Queen Elizabeth I to make her rage enough to want to decapitate him in the Shakespear Code episode (Series 3).
It is easy to be an armchair referee and sit there one DVD after the other spouting "good, bad, rubbish, great" - but it speaks volumes when certain DVDs are played over and over again, and for that reason this is one of those which earns my five-star stamp. Keep up the good work!
