3.0 out of 5 stars This reveiw is held in a time bubble and will never be read., 20 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Day of the Doctor - 50th Anniversary Special [DVD] (DVD)
First of all I would like to say that I know this reveiw will not be read and will not have any influence on reality, but I wanted to write it anyway. I think it is good for my soul.

This anniversary special is typical of the whole Moffat/Smith period of Dr Who. Mostly good, sometimes brilliant, sometimes awful.
It also highlights the main drawback of the Moffat/Smith partnership; overly complicated plots, irritating characters, and sillyness.
The story starts with Matt smith hanging by his ankles from the tardis doors, quite frankly pathetic, embarassing, and am I watching Mr Bean ?
Moffat seems intent on writing his own Doctor who mythology, he has already inflicted Riverpong on me and now we have an extra doctor. I think the power has gone to his head.
When the programe came back we were told that the timelords and daleks were all destroyed in the time war, but they keep comeing back anyway. It is only a television programe and past history can be bent to make a good story, but a wife and a extra doctor are sort of written in stone.
Having just rewatched the last David T story with the Timelords returning I failed to find a connection to this story. Just another overcomplicated plot

No annoying riverpong, but a silly queen.

Onthe plus side Billie Piper was brilliant and I liked the zygons.
John Hurt was a touch of class and it was great to see David T back.

I have given it three stars as I find the 3 star reviews the most interesting. Neither the love everyting or hate everything of 5 and 1 stars which have no balance to them.

Time to seal in time bubble, Barrelrider.

I couldn't agree with you more. A brilliant summing up of a missed opportunity.
