Brand New Doctor! Exciting New Adventures!

Get ready for the re-appearance of some recognisable faces in the two-part story of this time-travelling drama. A crashed spaceship, a shattered temple and a terrifying climb through the maze of the dead - River Song is back in the Doctor's life, and she's brought more trouble than even he can handle. The last of the Weeping Angels is loose in the ruins of Alfava Metraxis, and the Doctor is recruited to track it down. "Don't blink!" everyone tells Amy - but as Amy is about to discover, not blinking might just be the worst thing you can do...

In the final episode on this fantastical volume, journey to Venice where even danger is beautiful. The House of Calvierri has the whole city under its protection, but something is very wrong. There are blood-drained corpses in the street, something lurks in the canal, and the Calvierri girls are the loveliest in town, except when you glance in the mirror...
  • The Monster Files a behind the scenes look at the monsters from the collection including an up close look at the terrifying Weeping Angels - whatever you do don't blink

Matt Smith as The Doctor OUTSTANDING. I had reservations but since the revival in 2005 in my opinion Matt is the best. He has given the Doctor wit, a slightly unhinged personality with a dark edge that is constantly brewing. Christopher Eccleston was good, David Tennant was brilliant Matt Smith is THE Doctor!!!!! Who Da Man. A must for all Doctor Who fans

The first two parter this series was great. Written by the legend steven moffat, episodes 4 &5 see the return of the weeping angels and River Song. Episode six, " The Vampires Of Venice" was also great, and sees the return of Amy's boyfriend Rory, played by Arthur Darvill. As I say a fab episode, with some good comedy moments . Overall i would give ep 4: 8/10, ep 5: 8/10, ep 6: 8/10. Finally, if ur a big DW dvd collector like myself, then u might be slightly dissapointed to know that the "next time" trailers have been left out of the dvd. This applies to all the dvds in this current series.

When the 10th Doctor meet River Song in Silince in the Libery she talked about the Flight of the Byzantium as an adventure they will one day have together, well this is that story. The Doctor is now in his 11th regeneration and has meet River again. Landing on the planet that the Byzantium has crached River tells The Doctor and Amy that in the hold of that ship is the last Weeping Angel, Joining up with River who still hold knowledge of the Doctor's future life and Father Octavian and his troops, the Doctor must travel though the Maze of the Dead, to find the Angel and stop it,

A great 2 parter that brings back the Weeping Angels and turns everything you know about them around on it's head, 10 out of 10

In The Vampires of Venice after picking up Rory from his stag night (he is getting married to Amy) The Doctor takes them to Venice in the 1580's, a school that is run by Signora Calvierri, is not what it looks like, and girls who feed on blood, who don't like sunlight and have no reflection in a mirror, might or might not be Vampires.
The Doctor must waste no time in finding out.

an interesting episode with good one liners,. 7 out of 10

 The arc reveals its self

Going in to series 5 a lot of people have been apprehensive, and Steven Moffat, a believer that the transition should be difficult has made no attempt to put viewers at ease.

The Time of Angels/ Flesh and Stone are a wonderful re-introduction of the weeping angels but is also the true beginning of the crack story arc, just what are they and what happens to those engulfed by them? The identity of River Song is also hinted at, clearly her past is a lot shadier than we were previously aware; a woman we had previously known as a self sacrificing hero has served jail time for... well I don't want to spoil anything.
There is debate over whether the angels should ever have been seen to move, some claiming that it breaks the fourth wall, but my personal take is that it was done in such an effective and chilling manner that it really works. The atmosphere is top notch, the performances superb and some wonderfully dark humour, angel bob is both a chilling concept and a great source of humour.

My one complaint about this two parter would be the scene in the forest, and Amy with her eyes closed, no doubt chilling for the kids but it was an instance of the need to scare outweighing established continuity.

The final episode on this disc is Vampires of Venice, a funny and wonderfully charming romp, good characterisation (we are reminded just how alien the Doctor truly is within the first five minutes), but not particularly deep. A little light hearted fun after the tension that was the Angels two parter.

i have never enjoy sci fi in any from,shows like star trek and doctor who have always annoyed me,but when i seen a bit of david tennant as doctor who i ended up buying all 3 of his series and loved every episode.when i head he was leaving i was all ready to hate whoever took over and amazingly matt smith made it very easy,with annoying hair and a big nose and geeky smile he just has the total wrong look.he lacks humour and energy that tennant had,and when i recently met him with james corden while filming for series 6 he seems amazingly lovely but being nice does not really justify being a lead role in a tv show.maybe a tiny bit of make up and he could have been a bad guy on doctor who but a serious mistake making him the doctor.thankfully james corden will be returning in at least 1 episode of series 6 or else that would have flopped even more than series 5 did.thankfully amy pond is the 2nd best companion after rose tyler so its worth watching series 5 even just for her.although this programme would have done a better job making her the doctor as theres nothing that says there cant be a female doctor who and shes much more entertaining. if this was not filmed in cardiff the best city ever i would not be watching a second of this tripe,oh and this series totally ruins the title sequence,the inside of the tardis and the weeping angels,yet another reason they should have stopped after 4 series.talk about if it aint broke dont fix it ....
