its the first Doctor Who in BluRay. It starts very good with a pink panther style burglary and an inexplicable transport to another world. The dotty UNIT professor is so over the top that kind of spoiled it for me. It kind of ends up in a shambles that tries to ignore that fact by a final phatasmagorical escape scene. Style over substance I guess

As usual, David Tennant did his bit as Dr. Who. There were lovely sceneries great thrill rides, aliens. Michelle Ryan was great in her role.

HASH(0xa98bbcb4) out of 5 stars Not the Best, but Enjoyable July 28 2009
By Alyssa Zulueta - Published on
Pardon me, I'm going to nit-pick for a second: not EVERYONE knows about the Doctor, just U.N.I.T and Torchwood, and they've always known about him. (He worked with U.N.I.T back in the 70's, when the Timelords exiled him to earth and he didn't have access to the TARDIS.)
Now that I've revealed my geekiness, I will say that I LOVE the new series even more than the classic series. This is not one of the best (and yes, "Blink" is one of the best ever), but it's enjoyable, nonetheless.

HASH(0xa8390420) out of 5 stars It's a Good Start to the HD Format Nov. 3 2009
By Jason Sum - Published on
BBC Video put out a ***** Star BR Disc
It's a Stand-Alone "Special" Episode That doesn't really Tie into any of the Previous Seasons
Which in a way can be a good thing to lure new viewers into The Doctor Who Universe

It's Doctor Who in HD!!!!!

The PQ is @ The top of the List (I think it was shot in HD to begin with)
It just looks so Slick and at times close to 3D
The Audio also being in DTS makes it a must have
My Only major problem with the BR is Lack of any extras on the Disc
(BBC Could have went crazy and gave Fans allot of extras Like They did with the Recent RED DWARF BR Set)

The Episode is very good with Michelle Ryan starring opposite The one and only David Tennant

If u have a BR Player / Doctor Who Fan it's a Must have to add to your collection
Overall I gave the BR 9/10

HASH(0xa8390a44) out of 5 stars The first Doctor on Blu-ray Sept. 12 2009
By Geoffroy A. Chamot - Published on

A great addition to my collection, especially because of the Blu-ray. The color and brilliance is awesome.

The story was fun, and I liked this side adventure. It is sad that there aren't many more episodes with Tennant, but then again, I am excited about the upcoming new Doctor!

HASH(0xa83934e0) out of 5 stars Love David Tennant Dec 12 2009

I think David Tennant is the best Doctor yet, I will be sad to see him leave. I thought that Michelle Ryan had good chemistry with him in Planet of the Dead, I would have liked to see her as the next companion. I hope they consider her.
HASH(0xa8df9f00) out of 5 stars First of the 2009 Doctor Who specials Jan. 7 2012
By Tycereom - Published on
"Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead" is the first of the 2009 Doctor Who specials, and follows the Christmas 2008 special "The Next Doctor". It is the first Who story available in high definition. Aside from that, "Planet of the Dead" is good but not very special. Compared, for example, to the 2007 Christmas Special "Voyage of the Damned", "Planet of the Dead" has a simpler and less original story, less interesting characters, and less excitement. It's not bad, and I enjoyed watching it, but it's not among the best episodes with the tenth Doctor. Reviewed 8/29/2009 after watching on Blu-ray.
