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

|Matt Smith is the least Doctor Who||
I have to disagree with you and say that Smith is one of the best Doctor's we have had in a long time - perhaps since Tom Baker's #4. Matt is a good combo of the other doctors (especially Doctor #2 and Doctor #4). Baker's doc was also a know-it-all - which is not a bad thing as long as you... Read More

The Christmas special will probably be included with season 6. That's the convention they've followed with previous Christmas specials. That is, they include them with the next full season DVD release. They're usually available as separate purchases too (in the UK anyway).
The one thing that may... Read More

According to the BBC America site, subtitles will be available in English only; this has been the case with all of the new series releases.
