A phone call from U.N.I.T. sets off a fascinating chain of events that eventually brings 11, 10, and the Warrior together. The action is fast, the story is fun, the Doctors are an absolute joy to watch, and by the end of the special, the series will be headed in a bold new direction. There are several other surprise appearances that I will absolutely not spoil. Suffice to say that fans, new and old, will be very, very happy with them.
This special was as close to perfect, without Eccleston, as it could get, though I do wish the villains were a little more threatening, though that is nothing more than a nitpick. Smith and Tennant are simply marvelous together, and John Hurt only makes them more fun to watch. All in all, The Day of the Doctor is a fantastic tale that no Whovian should miss.
Definitely up there with the best live action 3D I have ever seen. Being Blu Ray this should be even better than what I saw.
But the resolution was fantastic. The imagery was highly dimensional and I can't even imagine watching this episode in 2D.
You wouldn't be seeing a world in a painting. It would be like a black and white picture telling you how colorful a painting is.
Everything about it is first rate at least for the first forty minutes. Then a little less attention gets paid to the 3D aspect.
I hope this spurs more 3D broadcasts because it was such a great experience. 3D on televisions is so well done and yet there is so little content readily available to customers who own 3D capable sets. Hopefully Netflix will get this one soon so more people will have access. (Netflix is one of the only streaming service providing some 3D content) Almost a must have for fans of the Doctor and 3D.
I love the nod to Tom Baker, the 4th Doctor, at the end of the special and I love how Peter Capaldi, the 12th Doctor, appears during a sequence with every other doctor during the big scene near the end of the special. It makes me far more excited to see him as the doctor.
Overall, Without a doubt it's a great special and well worth buying. I just wish Eccleston would have taken the time to film at least one scene for it because it not only would have made it that much more better but it would have been a real treat to the fans.
A note on pricing: I odered the Doctor Who: The 50th Anniversary Collection [HD] TV Pass on Friday 11/22 and have received all of the content that was already available at that time that wasn't free for $2.84 each. And I've received each subsequent purchase in the collection, including The Day of the Doctor, for $2.84. It would have been nice if Amazon could have done a better job letting people know ahead of time the post-airing price for The Day of the Doctor would jump to $7.99 but I don't know how such pricing and price changes actually work.
Last night the price of An Adventure in Time and Space was only 2.99, from what I have read in other reviews Day of the Doctor was priced similarly. Imagine my chagrin and immense disappointment when I checked the prices this evening and the prices were increased!
If you pull more stunts like this, you're going to drive away more customers than you retain!
