I quiet enjoyed this season/series of Dr Who, it had a very advanced plot line that stretched the whole series.

As for the individual shows and plots those were fantastic as well. I do very much enjoy Matt Smiths acting, as well as Karen Gillian. But lets face it who doesn't like a pretty an aggressive red head lol. The places they went to, and seen in this series were fantastic, as well as the last shows had quiet a few nice cliff hangers.

In the end this was well work the buy. I enjoyed it immensely.

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.

There's sort of an unspoken rule that the Doctor doesn't go back in time and just tell himself how to solve every problem, get himself out of jail, or leave himself notes from the future on how to beat the bad guy. In this season all of that just... keeps... happening. It's painful. Once you cross that line, you have to ask "why doesn't he do that in every situation?"

Also, he saves the entirety of creation. Again. He did that last season after spending three seasons building up to it. If you go right back to that well without even one season break, it just becomes tired and pedantic.

It's sad how this season had production values far above any of the previous seasons, but it had the laziest writing of the new Who.

I ordered the Doctor Who The Complete Fifth Series, I had placed my ordered well before December I was guaranteed to receive the item before Dec 19th. I didn't receive the item until Dec 24th if it had been any later, the person who it was intended for wouldn't been able to receive it due to the fact they were from out of town. I had purchased another item from amazon which I ordered later and it came well before this item came find that odd. When I did receive the item it was in good condition thanks but delivery should of been quicker.

I was a Dr Who fan as a kid, and I have really enjoyed seasons one-four. I have not been enjoying season five as much, but must confess to being a little unsure why. Matt Smith does a decent job as the doctor, and Karen Gillan holds her own. There are some good one-liners as well. I find it aimed at a younger audience than the previous seasons, and the Doctor comes across as a little stunned, rather than wise and internally strong. I feel that the previous seasons had a bit more emotional depth. The foreshadowing of future disaster is more than a little heavy and the flashbacks to keep reminding us that there was foreshadowing in the previous episodes of the series starts to be a bit annoying. Anyway, I am watching it, and not hating it. Just not falling in love with it.

This show is all about the power of words and thoughts - so much innuendo and so much fun! Love it! =)

I am a new fan of Doctor Who and I appreciate Math Smith in his role. He tends to be so light hearted that when he is serious... we take him seriously! The episodes are varied and fun. It's a great show for adventures, a bit of mystery and some laugh, without the constant suspense and stress: a great way to relax and be entertained. The only drawback is that there is not enough episodes, but at least, it is priced to match. I am looking foward the second half of this serie.

i was very pleased with the ACTUAL product. of course, even buying the DVD set means you're automatically going to be pleased b/c you're a fan.

i was very upset when it came to the condition, however. when it arrived one of the box set corners was mashed in like it had been dropped, and the plastic disc holder 'pages' inside were cracked in several places. the worst part, however, was the fact that the final disc, containing that season's doctor who confidential, was cracked, rendering the entire disc unwatchable. i was extremely upset, but given that my purchase was not from amazon directly, i figured i'd never actually see compensation should i complain or attempt to return the discs.

very pleased with the product itself and the money i saved, but i gave it a lower overall rating because of the condition it arrived in.

I didn't think anyone could replace David Tennant, but Matt Smith sure filled his shoes! The bluray version isn't AS good as some other discs but the show still looks great!
