Matt Smith's sophomore outing as the 11th incarnation of the BBC's science-fiction hero Doctor Who retains the charisma and energy that made his debut an immediate hit with fans worldwide. The two-disc set contains the first seven episodes of the sixth series of revamped Doctor adventures. It kicks off with an extraordinary two-part story ("The Impossible Astronaut" and "Day of the Moon") that reunites the Doctor with companions Amy (Karen Gillan) and Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill) to defeat a race of aliens called the Silence (the subject of the "Silence will fall" references throughout series five), which have influenced the course of human history through post-hypnotic suggestion. The two-parter also sets in motion an overall story arc that runs through the subsequent five episodes and reveals some stunning surprises, most notably in regard to Amy and the true identity of River Song (Alex Kingston). Meanwhile, the Doctor also contends with a 17th-century pirate ship plagued by a monstrous siren (Lily Cole, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) in "The Curse of the Black Spot" and encounters a physical manifestation of the TARDIS's matrix in "The Doctor's Wife," which features a script by Neil Gaiman (The Sandman) and the voice of Michael Sheen as a sentient asteroid. The first part of series six heads for its conclusion with a second two-parter, "The Rebel Flesh" and "The Almost People," which pits the Doctor against synthetic clones that assume the memories of the humans they replicate, and brings the seven episodes to a stunning close with the action-packed "A Good Man Goes to War," which brings the arc full circle and undoubtedly leaves viewers clamoring for the series' remaining six stories.

Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1 offers fans concrete assurance that the venerable series remains in good hands with Steven Moffat as head writer and executive producer, as well as a tantalizing direction for the program in the episodes to come. Extras on the Blu-ray set are limited to a pair of Monster Files featurettes, which explore the creation and execution of the Silence and the Gangers in considerable detail, including interviews with the cast and crew (save Smith) and behind-the-scenes footage. --Paul Gaita The second half of Doctor Who's sixth series, which stars Matt Smith as the United Kingdom's venerable time-traveling hero, answers the question that left fans breathless for most of 2011--how will the Doctor die?--while offering a few other intriguing adventures along the way. The series' central concern is finally addressed in the final episode on the set, "The Wedding of River Song," which finds the world in a state of time confusion, with all history happening at once. To reveal the fate of the Doctor would be tantamount to high treason among Who fans, but suffice it to say that the conclusion does pull together all the threads of the sixth series in a way that may work for some fans but not at all for others. The most notable polarizing element is undoubtedly the Teselecta, a shape-shifting humanoid robot operated by miniaturized humans (not unlike the disastrous Eddie Murphy vehicle Meet Dave) that also appears in the part-two opener, "Let's Kill Hitler," where it is dispatched to eliminate the Führer by a shadowy "Justice Department." One's appreciation for such a complete game-changing character will largely define how Series Six, Part Two is viewed, since the outcome of the Doctor's death is the key story line of the entire series. However, there are also a handful of solid secondary episodes buttressing the main story arc, most notably "The Girl Who Waited," which finds the Doctor's companion, Amy (Karen Gillan), split into older and younger versions of herself on a plague-ridden planet, and "Closing Time," which brings back not only James Corden's Craig Owens (from the fifth series' "The Lodger") but also vintage villains the Cybermen. Series Six, Part Two is an ambitious conclusion for an entirely ambitious series, no matter how one feels about the denouement, and another impressive addition to the adventures of the Eleventh Doctor. Extras on the set are limited to a pair of Monster Files, one devoted to the robotic antibodies patrolling the Teselecta, while the other concerns the revamped Cybermats, the vermin-like tools of the Cybermen. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars "Complete" is its middle name (almost) September 13, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is the *Complete* Sixth Series featuring everything from where the Complete Fifth Series leaves off. It's not just Part 1:Doctor Who: Series Six, Part One [Blu-ray] & Part 2: Doctor Who: The Sixth Series - Part 2 [Blu-ray], but also the Christmas Special Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol [Blu-ray] which preceded it. The 14 episodes are as follows:
A Christmas Carol
The Impossible Astronaut
The Day of the Moon
The Curse of the Black Spot
The Doctor's Wife (not who you think)
The Rebel Flesh
The Almost People
A Good Man Goes to War
Let's Kill Hitler
Night Terrors
The Girl Who Waited
The God Complex
Closing Time
The Wedding of River Song

Slightly more than the sum of the parts, but to quote River Song, "it's early days" and the price should go down from competition. I have mine on order so I can capture any price drops. :-)

Also included are the following extras (for the first time available):

Extras:

5.0 out of 5 stars DO THIS ONE INSTEAD! September 30, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Honestly, when you really get down to it, this is the better deal. I originally was going to do just the Part 1 and Part 2 DVDs as I already had the Xmas special, but those DVDs have just the episodes and maybe one or two special features each....compared to THIS set which has these features attached:

A Christmas Carol, The Impossible Astronaut, Day Of The Moon, The Curse Of The Black Spot, The Doctor's Wife, The Rebel Flesh, The Almost People, A Good Man Goes To War, Let's Kill Hitler, Night Terrors, The Girl Who Waited, The God Complex, Closing Time, The Wedding of River Song. SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE:

5 X `Night And The Doctor' Additional Scenes
2 X `Comic Relief' Sketches
Commentaries
4 X `The Monster Files'
4 X Prequels
Trailers
14 X `Doctor Who Confidential' Cut-Downs
`Doctor Who Confidential: A Nights' Tale'

THAT is a much better deal if not for the Confidential stuff but also for the prequels, comedy relief sketches and additional scenes you will NEVER see otherwise. SO its like 20 more bucks....big freaking deal. You get so much more cool stuff along with it. THIS is the 6th Series you want to buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars This set will include "A Christmas Carol" September 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is so hard for me to believe that "Dr. Who" is considered a children's program in England. Maybe the new Who's, especially with Tennant and Smith, are changing that. They have pretty "big" themes, interesting and exciting to sci-fi loving adults. I am a true-blue fan, collecting the DVD sets of the original Dr. Who's (which I originally recorded onto VHS from the TV!) as well as the new Dr. Who's.

Series 6 of Dr. Who was produced and aired in two sections, with a short hiatus inbetween. The first seven episodes were broadcast in spring 2011. The last six episodes are still being aired in Sept. 2011. That is why Series 6 was broken into two separate DVD releases, known as Part 1 and Part 2.

Before Series 6 Part 1 started, there was the 2010 Christmas Special, "A Christmas Carol". I watched that on TV and the ending was pretty emotional, a thoughtful well-done Christmas-y Dickens-like show. "A Christmas Carol" was NOT included in the DVD Series 6 - Part 1. However, it IS included in this "Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series".

Following is a list of all the episodes for Series 6 which are included in this Complete Sixth Series. A couple of them are just plain good old adventure stories, such as "The Curse of the Black Spot", with a great twist on the myth of the siren and her ability to call sailors to their doom. "The Doctor's Wife" is also a favorite of mine. The Doctor answers a Time Lord distress call and is trapped with the gruesome Auntie and Uncle and the downright weird Idris. But Idris isn't who or what she seems and her interaction with the Doctor is fabulous.

Other episodes have themes which carry forward into following episodes, and, to tell the truth, I sometimes had a little trouble keeping track of everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! The Many Faces of Doctor Who September 25, 2011
By Sassy
Verified Purchase
Loved this episode. Lots of good action. We get a chance to see Amy and Rory, though briefly. Craig is wonderful and goes far in helping soothe the Doctor's feeling that he is a harm to anyone near him.

Craig is fantastic.

The Doctor with the baby is sooooooooo funny. Stormageddon who calls everyone other than his parents "peasants."

The ending was AWESOME! Yep. We see River again. Can't wait to see the next episode.

Matt Smith was really amazing. So many faces. The grieving doctor, knowing he is going to be facing his own death soon. The damaged friend who needs a friend. The amazing hero. The sad and tired ole man. AND! A store clerk! Such an amazing range of emotions and role and he pulls it out with aplomb.

PS: Many of the other reviews never actually watched the episode, but complained about tech issues when the episode was unavailable. That is clearly shameful and childish behavior.
