5.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge a show by its critics, 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Complete Series 7 [DVD] (DVD)
As a lifelong dedicated Whovian you can either fall into the trap of following the many forums and blogs where negativity is currency or you can watch a programme on it's own merits and enjoy the ride that each show runner provides. This, series 7, ran by the indomitable Stephen Moffat, is a different kettle of fish to his previous two woven tapestries with the fact that half of it is all movie style, stand alone epic bluster that says goodbye to two companions that came on board at the same time as Matt Smith, and the other half are stand alone stories infused with a mystery that is weaved in up untill the last episode while also introducing us to the latest plot driven companion. So, as a whole, it does feel slightly uneven as a dvd boxset but worked well to suit the gapping in it's transmission. That said, each story brings it's merits to the table and there is not really a damp squib between them. Yes even the critically panned Rings of Akhaten had it's good side where both Matt and Jenna act their chops off against a green screen monster/god. While doctor who confidential is missed the special features, while not up to par with previous box sets, does have a fair amount of importance to them, whether it's the mini episodes setting up the main course or little bite sized online making of vignettes it still makes holding out on getting the 2 part vanilla-ish dvds for so long and waiting for this treasure chest of a whole series of timey whimy, dinosaur hunting, angel dodging, tardis exploring, cybermen reinventing fun
