This review is from: Doctor Who - Series 5, Volume 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Box falls out of sky,man falls out of box,man eats fish custard,oh! and bow ties and
fez's are cool!So begins a new era in one of the greatest british television series
ever made.The appeal of doctor who is the ongoing theme of change and evolution, which has been there since the beginning,so the debate over David Tennant or Matt Smith is accademic really,both play differing facets of the same character.
However this new series really starts with a bang,crash and a crack in a wall.
Matt Smith is superb as the eccentric and ever so slightly bonkers eleventh doctor
(very Troughtonesque to my mind)Karen Gillan plays a very fiesty Amy Pond with relish,and Arthur Darvill Has the hardest task of all playing Rory and all that this character has to deal with,and he does it brilliantly and with style.These
first three episodes are a fantasic start to a new era and what has turned out
to be a great new series,looking forward to the now annual "event" of the xmas special and roll on spring 2011 and series 6....
