BBC: Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series DVD Review

BBC: Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series DVD Review

Synopsis: Matt Smith and Karen Gillan star as the new Doctor and his companion in an all-new series of Doctor Who. After his explosive regeneration, the Eleventh Doctor awakes to discover his TARDIS is about to crash! After falling from the sky, he pulls himself out of the wreckage to come face-to-face with young Amy Pond. The Doctor promises to take Amy to the stars. But first they must divert an alien plot that could destroy the Earth. The Doctor makes good his promise, and Amy boards the regenerated TARDIS, ready to take to the stars on a series of wild adventures that will change her life. As always, wherever the Doctor goes, his oldest enemies, the Daleks, are never far behind. They are hatching a new master plan from the heart of war-torn London in the 1940s. But they are not the only strange creatures the Doctor and Amy must face--there are also alien vampires, humanoid reptiles, the Weeping Angels, and a silent menace that follows Amy and the Doctor around wherever they go.

Review: Doctor Who has found a great re-birth over the past few years.  The last doctor, I believe it was the 10th version, became very beloved during his reign, so this new Doctor had some very large shoes to fill!

This BBC series features the TARDIS crashing into a realm where Amy is grown and becomes the whitty sidekick for the Doctor as he struggles to stop an alien plot from destroying the world.  Not shocking!  Fan of this series will rejoice to find out that the new doctor, played by Matt Smith, is not only refreshing, but helps us to grieve the loss of the tenth doctor, David Tennant.

This DVD set is a fantastic beginning and definately something any Who fan needs to have in their collection.

Doctor Who Confidential: An inside look at each episode, Monster Files: Get under the skin and inside the minds of the new Doctor's most challenging opponents, In-vision commentaries
