    Doctor still charming, story arc pretentious

    I would recommed this to a friend if the friend were a Doctor Who fan. This is the weakest season of the current DW run. The season plays too much like a soap opera. What was once a series of episodes leading to an unexpected finale, is now a series about the expected finale without much else of interest going on. The plot of the overarching story arc is much too convoluted and contrived to be really interesting. Still, the chemistry of the main characters remains, and they are still interesting characters. There is the occasional gem of an episode, but that is more the exception than the rule. Many are just there to propel the afore mentioned overarching story arc. As for the extras, the extra bits of story that go on between the episodes is not as good as the last season. The monster files are generally good.

    The Doctor, Amy and Rory are back to deal with the Silence, a religious sect devoted to stopping the Doctor. Along the way we learn who River is, reunite with Craig and meet a mysterious new race of Aliens. The Set kicks off with A Christmas Carol which sees the Doctor playing the Ghosts of Past, Present and Future to save a ship full of people, including Amy and Rory, on the verge of crashing. All 13 regular episodes are of course included along with the extras which include the Night of the Doctor scenes, which see the Doctor and River's first and last nights, the Comic Relief sketch, all the prequels, and of course the usual Doctor Who Confidentials, Monster files, and Commentary. If you are a fan of Doctor Who or just The 11th Doctor this is a must get.

    To those who don't know, Doctor Who is a British Science Fiction series that has become one the world's most popular shows. It is one of the longest running if not the longest running scifi shows of all time. From the early 60s to late 80s and the continuation from 2005 to present. I can not stress enough that even if you are not a scifi genre fan please give this show a chance. It is just enough like the old series for the keep old fans in bliss and different from the old series to make a newer generation die-hard fans. It mixes sometimes goofy (depending on which Doctor) humor, substantial action, and intelligent story to make a truly entertaining series. Few shows can put people in awe. This show put the entire world in awe.

    Worst Episodes Ever

    Don't get me wrong, I really like Matt Smith, and his portrayal of the Doctor includes some fine acting. Amy and Rory are two of the most interesting companions as well. But the writing these actors were given is some of the worst ever devised for the series in its over 50 year history. The convoluted story arch that governs this series is so full of plot holes and inconsistencies that the big heart-pounding reveals are actually little more than predictable letdowns. The Doctor deserves better writing, and so do his companions. Buy series seven instead.

    By far the best way to pick up this season on DVD! While it may be slightly cheaper to buy this in the Part 1 and Part 2 format, if available, it is a better value to purchase this as the entire season. Not only do you get all the bonus extras, it includes two of the Christmas specials, which would negate any savings if you were going to buy them as well.

    Matt Smith's Doctor is brilliant. It will appear to be a repetitive comment but this is a great season. Production values are great front to back. Image and audio quality are high. There is a plethora of extra features. Doctor Who fans will be quite pleased with this set. If you're not yet a Who fan this set may make you one. Highly recommended.

    So, now we arrive midway through Matt Smith's run as The Doctor and he faces his most dangerous threat yet...The Silence. Fans of River Song will eat these stories up These are very well written episodes and the visuals have improved greatly thus making it a treat for just about anybody including newbies. Doctor Who on Blu was meant for You
