The Doctor returns, alongside newly weds Amy and Rory, to face monsters and mysteries and adventures all across time and space, in a thrilling new series of Doctor Who. Together they'll find themselves in sixties America, battling the invasion the world forgot, then journey on the high seas of 1696 aboard a pirate ship, to solve the mystery of the Siren.

In a bubble universe at the very edge of reality, the Doctor will meet an old friend with a new face, and in a monastery on a remote island in the near future, an industrial accident will take on a terrible human shape. And waiting for them, at the end of all this, is the battle of Demon's Run, and the Doctor's darkest hour. Can even the truth about River Song save the Time Lord's soul?

Only two things are certain. Silence will fall. And a good man is going to die...

This new series of doctor who never fails to get better and better every time, this series so far has had very deep and twisted stories that are dark and more moody than ever before, the humour is still there but things are getting very sinister for the doctor and its an amazing thing to watch, Matt smith is brilliant as the doctor, Karen Gillan is extremely sexy and an amazing assistant to the doctor, the rest of the supporting cast fits in great too, great effects and set pieces, this is a series that has a long, long running yet, a must watch...!!!

Everyone is allowed an opinion and the previous reviewer obviously wanted things to be revealed a bit quicker. I for one love this new series, I love that Amy and Rory finally get to stretch their acting and emotional range, I love Matt Smiths excentricities that illustrate the fierce intelligence of a timelord trapped in a body it doesnt know quite what to do with and most of all I love the steady drip feed of teasing answers that force you to go back and relive the series to see what you missed.

This series is more advanced than the previous one. Whilst that also teased you with a build up, this one works on many different levels. Steven Moffat has actually planted several seeds way back that we are only now starting to see grow. I would go so far as to say that he even adapted his stories and characters to fit things laid down by RTD and David Tennant (the last episode of this series is testimony without spoiling it).

Unlike X Files this is going somewhere and I doubt it will just run out of steam and be cancelled. This is more like Babylon 5 (tho in fairness lower budget) where there is a story arc, all will be revealed but its not for the casual viewer, and the faithful will be rewarded.

Sorry but this is by far the best Doctor, best series, best companions and best writer for a long time! I was brought up on Tom Baker and I would say that Matt Smith is second only to him. Stick with it and enjoy it.

I have only one crtiticism and that is that every now and then Steven Moffat slips and throws in something very stupid and childish that takes the edge off the drama and emotion. I know its not super serious but the whole Dalek episode in WW2 was daft and reintroducing an element of that in the last episode of this set was flawed and made the Doctor also seem a bit immature.

I love the new series. The Doctor is more of a thinker now.
The series is designed to make you think and as a long time Whovian, i started watching in the mid 70's, this is what I always loved about it.
Highlights for me include the Tardis as a woman, an idea used before and now brought to the screen, the cliffhanger episode ending the Spring run and the opening episode, The Impossible Astronaut.
The Doctor was never a warrior or an action movie character, we lost a little of that when Mr Tennant was on board. Mr Tennant did a brilliant job but Mr Smith is bringing the original feel back and that can only be a good thing.
This set is priced surprisingly low and should be added to any Whovians collection. Considering some of the single DVD stories cost the same as this, it would be rude not to....
Enjoy and as for making the watcher think... that can only be a good thing, Right?

Last year/series I felt that the show was very good in terms of acting and stories but felt that the production values and the unnecessary revamps of certain elements severely let the series down, this year however I think the opposite is true. While this is only the first part of series six and theres still more to come it has to be said that this first run is somewhat a disappointment. Nevertheless the issues that I thought plagued series five seem to have been sorted out as the current theme tune and opening credits really do grow on you over time (Im still not keen on the logo and insignia though!) and the special effects and other production values seem to have been upped again and at times the quality is outstanding.

In addition, Matt Smith is also blooming brilliant as The Doctor and continues to get better and better, somehow managing to act and look older than his years and his performance is a very welcome relief following Tennants hammy, shouty and over-rated portrayal. Karen Gillan also continues to impress and her character is much better written this series coming across far less cold and blunt which is a welcome relief. The permanent addition of Arthur Darvill as Amys boyfriend Rory is also a very good move as Darvill proves himself to be a decent actor and very good at comic relief. His double act with Smiths Doctor is also another highlight of the series. Sadly where this first run of series six is let down, in my opinion, is with the stories. For starters we have the opening two-parter set in America (which makes a nice change from a constant UK setting and does provide us with some stunning backdrops) which in my opinion is massively over-rated and very sloppy with parts of the story.

The second two-parter also had the potential to be brilliant (especially as it was written by one of the genesis behind the brilliant Life On Mars) and at times it does shine (Matts double take on The Doctor for example and that brilliant cliff-hanger) but overall it is very slow going and a tad boring. The episodes that do however shine are the very under-rated Curse Of The Black Spot (a standard who adventure with a nice little twist to the end), The Doctors Wife (which has a classic who feel to it and contains many references to the shows past) and of course the mid-season finale A Good Man Goes To War (the disappointing River Song reveal aside!). Overall, I think a lot of these episodes, especially the opening two-parter are purely set up for the overall story arc and for whats to come. Also this series appears quite dark and some of the fun is gone which a shame although it is nice to see Matt smith portraying the role so well. Finally, Steven Moffat still appears to struggle to write an episode as good as The Empty Child or Blink while running the show which is another disappointment. Heres hoping that the best (story wise) is yet to come. 3.5 Stars.

A brilliant first part of the new series. Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill and Alex Kingston return to battle the Silence as well as the Siren and the Gangers.

The Impossible Planet: 8/10, A good start to the series with a two-parter. We are introduced to the terrifying Silence, and there is a shocking twist.

The Day of the Moon: 8/10, Another good episode by Steven Moffat, howevr it was extremely cheesy when River fell back in to the Tardisand landed in the swimming pool.

The Curse of the Black Spot: 7/10, A decent episode which sees the Doctor and co. battle the Siren, played by Lily Cole. A decent swashbuckling adventure!

The Doctor's Wife: 9/10, A very good episode in which we see the Doctor's wife. We also get to see different parts of the Tardis as well as Amy and Rory in the old Tardis.

The Rebel Flesh: 7/10, I struggled to get into this episode, but there were very good performances from the main cast. The Gangers are interesting.

The Almost People: 8/10, This is better than the previous episode and it is interesting to see a different side to the Doctor.

A Good Man Goes to War: 10/10, An excellent episode in which River Song's identity is revealed, and the Doctor facesthe Battle of Demon's Run.

I can't wait for the second part of the series which is aired later in the year, as there are still questions that have been left unanswered.
