Matt Smith's second series and looking more "established" in the role
on 3 October 2016
Bought to complete my upgrade of Doctor Who DVDs to Blu-ray, this is Matt Smith's second season as the time lord. Unlike season 5, Matt Smith is more relaxed in the role and seems to have settled in nicely. As in the previous series, there is a story arc and in keeping with Steven Moffat's writing, there are clues everywhere and in plain sight, but this often makes for over complicated storylines that might alienate younger viewers. The production values are still in keeping with previous series and most episodes are enjoyable. The boxset is supplied with a card sleeve with a multi-way Blu-ray case inside. As well as the episodes there are a selection of behind the scenes features, although these seem to be less that during David Tennant's tenure.
All in all, an enjoyable romp through series 6 which is sometimes let down by over-complicated storylines for a family show.
