When compared to the archival Doctor Who releases, the six-disc set of the Complete Fifth Series comes up somewhat short in the supplemental feature department, but there are still a number of worthwhile extras to complement the episodes. Chief among these are the six commentary tracks, most of which feature newly minted show runner Steven Moffat (Sherlock), as well as Gillan and Darvill, and run the gamut from giggly, lightweight chats to informative looks at the production process. Less interesting are the video diaries by the three series leads, which are amusing but forgettable fluff, as are the outtakes and Doctor Who Confidential Cut-Downs. The Monster Files provides a look at the series' key villains, including the new designs for the Daleks and the monstrous Alliance, which Moffat reveals as being comprised of whatever costumes were available at the time of shooting (!). A barrage of TV spots and promos, including a US spot, round out the extras. --Paul Gaita
It is the best summer DVD that I have watched this summer. When Steven Moffat & Mark Gattis write scripts (with help with other writers too), they are GREAT! Read morePublished 10 months ago by Marion G. Craig

Was purchased and given as a gift. The person that received it did enjoy the movies. If he is happy then i am happy with this purchase.
As usual, Amazon fast delivery.
There were two or three episodes in which the DVD froze and we had to go through the episode scene by scene to get to the rest of the episode.Published on June 2 2013 by Alison Tieman
