Product Description


Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe is one of the beloved series' most enchanting episodes, and that's saying something. The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe was the Christmas special for Doctor Who in England in 2011, and happily it's now available on Blu-ray for merry holiday seasons everywhere. The story opens in 1938 England, with Madge Arwell (played by the prolific and talented Claire Skinner) bicycling home and suddenly seeing an injured man (or is he an angel?). She comes to the mysterious stranger's aid, and he promises to repay her by granting her a wish. Fast-forward several years, when England is being battered by German bombers, and Madge learns that her beloved husband has been lost in combat on the front. Madge is overcome with grief but vows to make Christmas a wonderful one for her children… and then suddenly, magic things begin to happen. Skinner is the heart and soul of this episode, and it's to her credit that the story is such an immersive, enjoyable fantasy. The Doctor (Matt Smith) appears, apparently in answer to Madge's wish, as a guide for her and her children in a magical dimension. The story is an homage to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, with dialogue referencing the earlier work. But The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe is pure Doctor Who in its self-referential, silly, wise, and wonderful way. This special set includes a prequel and several Best of Doctor Who featurettes. Happy Christmas to all. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and somewhat sentimental Oct. 4 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Who recommend this to anyone who likes Dr. Who. Matt Smith is always fascinating to watch and is quite clever as always in this episode. Sorry to see him finish as the Dr.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Specials July 8 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I like the Doctor Who Specials as much as the series'. They have complete stories in a single show and are a very good way to introduce new people to the sdventures. I show them to peaople who have never seen Doctor Who and mostly get requests for more.

2.0 out of 5 stars One Episode? May 31 2013
Why is one special almost the same price as half of the seventh season? I am going to wait and see if they release a set of the season 7 specials as this is ridiculous.
