Who went to the proms
on 20 July 2010
Remember the fuss about announcing the new DOCTOR,well this xmas special plays on that.THE first twenty minutes or so keep you guessing,however now that we know who's who,it is perhaps inevitable that this episode loses it's edge.Despite excellent work by both Tennant,and Morrissey,this story does not stand repeated veiwing too well.
You are probably now thinking why did I buy it,and give it four stars,well the price for starters + three other reasons.
CYBERMEN-A favourite of mine,but in truth not their best storyline,saved by an expensive looking[for the b.b.c]Cyberking.
Dervla Kirwin-Looks rather striking in that red dress,helps to restore some quality to this episode.
THE PROMS-The full uninterrupted show from the Royal Albert hall.The 2007 xmas special had a backstage documentary of the Cardiff event,I have both as they compliment each other quite well.Why not buy both,they are worth it at Amazon prices,and will delight you again and again.
I could not help but smile at the audiances reaction,when seeing the DOCTOR,or when Donna is shown on the big screen,catching up with the DOCTOR again,or when the DALEKs+DAVROS invade the stage .The best bit,is when the rest of the aliens march through the audiance.Look out for the JUDOON[space rhino] nearly impaling a small child,he's terrifyed and his mum is furious.
I have to say I'm jealous of the audiance who made it there,and also that I would have looked after the TARDIS program better[still jealous].All in all this d.v.d is superb value and worthy of repeat veiwing for the PROMS extra alone,enjoy it again and again
