David Tennant's tenure as the Time Lord Doctor Who gets a brief extension with the energetic animated adventure Dreamland, which was broadcast on the official Doctor Who website in 2009. As we learn in the 45-minute feature, "Dreamland" is code for the infamous Area 51, where aliens have reportedly been spotted, and where Tennant's Doctor finds himself in the middle of an invasion by the insectoid Viperox. With the help of locals Cassie (Georgia Moffett, the daughter of Fifth Doctor Peter Davison) and Jimmy (Tim Howar), the Doctor must put a halt to the Viperox's world domination plans while avoiding a war-mongering US Army general. Dreamland benefits from a solid, action-filled script by Phil Ford (who penned the live-action Tennant serial, The Waters of Mars) but is hampered throughout by its clunky CGI animation, which works wonders with backgrounds but makes Tennant's Doctor and his companions look awfully lifeless. Still, it's better than the dreadful artwork for the previous animated offering, The Infinite Quest, and should please dedicated followers of the Doctor. The two-disc set includes a second disc titled Doctor Who's Greatest Moments, which is comprised of clips from the Tennant years, as well as interviews with all the major participants (and a few surprises, like Sir Derek Jacobi), and lumped into themed categories (The Doctor, Companions, Enemies). Amusingly enough, the featurettes, which each clock in at 60 minutes, are longer than the main feature itself. --Paul Gaita

Product Description

This sensational new animated adventure finds the Doctor (voiced by David Tennant) hooked up with two new companions – Cassie and Jimmy – and pits him against a new alien race, the monstrous Viperox, led by Lord Azlok. Day Springs, Nevada, 1958. During a visit to a local diner, the Doctor befriends a young waitress, Cassie, and her friend Jimmy. When the Doctor examines an extraterrestrial artefact, he draws the attention of a mysterious man in black, an alien warrior and Colonel Stark, commanderof Dreamland – the military base also known as Area 51. So begins a momentous mission for the Doctor, who with the help of his new companions and Jimmy’s grandfather, Night Eagle, sets out to rescue the stranded alien, Rivesh Mantilax, and his wife, Saruba Valek, from the clutches of the American military – and from the terrifying alien race, the Viperox, led by the ruthless Lord Azlok. Also includes 3-part retrospective Doctor Who Greatest Moments: The Doctor / The Companions /The Enemies. Written by Phil Ford, DREAMLAND sees the iconic TARDIS touch down in thedesert in the USA. Stumbling across a mysterious alien artefact in a local diner, the Doctor is led to Area 51, also known as Dreamland, the US' most secret base. He then finds himself on a momentous mission to rescue Rivesh Mantilax from the threat of the ruthless Viperox and the clutches of the American military.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good one for kids and family viewing February 15, 2010
This is the second David Tennant/Doctor Who animated series disc, titled "Dreamland." This one comes from a BBCi (or Red Button) broadcast series of a 12-minute CGI cartoons, assembling the individual weekly bits of a Doctor Who animated adventure originally broadcast on a BBC children's show in 2008-2009. It's the first time it's been available here in the U.S. This time, The Doctor's T.A.R.D.I.S. lands in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947...

As such, it is episodic, and juvenile, rather thin on plot and fairly transparent for adult viewers. But the under-12 set will love it, and it's entertaining enough for adults, provided you're already a fan of the revamped BBC TV Series.

Non-essential Whovian programming if you're not a completist, but another cartoon Doctor Who show that's perfect for the kids and for family viewing. Four out of five stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars underwhelming April 24, 2010
I've just seen this. The action is good, if unsuprising. It's very much what you'd expect in a David Tenant Dr Who with more action available because it's animated not live. The supporting characters are pretty cliched; wise, stoic, handy-with-arrows Native Americans, evil militaristic US Army type, plucky woman and evil alien. The animation is pretty awful though - it looks like clips from a not very good video game.

I love Dr Who and this is a great story. Love the fact that David T. and his (future?) wife voice characters here.
The animation is quite stiff, seems dated.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Doctor, in CGI August 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
It's a pretty good story, and enjoyable for kiddos as well as adults (although admittedly, more for kiddos.) The animation is a bit strange at times, but only because it lacks the nonverbal emotion that David is so apt to express.
The story revolves around Area 51, or "Dreamland," and will appeal to conspiracy theorists as well as alien enthusiasts (among other science fiction fans.)

3.0 out of 5 stars animation lacking October 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
Plot for a David Tennant Dr. Who. one star
Voicing and sound effects. One star
Writing and script. One star
Action and animation however were sorely lacking I wouldn't even call it video game animation, video game animation is much better. It was computer animated, I think. You could see what looked like brushstrokes or lines from colored pencils, animation didn't line up properly (he puts his hand over her mouth to quiet her and his open hand barely touches her mouth at all) the action was jerky, and if you see their feet it looks like they are doing the moon walk fowards (feet moving so much more than the background, feet appear to be sliding backward half the time) So, three stars, it would have been better live action, or if they had gone really out there since it's animated. I mean come one, why stick to such simplistic animation. Mostly humans with two alien species, either of which would have looked better on the actual show. It is not a must buy, but not the worst thing I've ever seen. Borrow or rent if you can.

This adventure finds the Doctor in the New Mexico desert and involved in a mystery of dark government conspiracies, alien bug monsters, and even a bit of romance.

There's plenty to recommend the story beginning with the absolutely stunning animation which makes everything look so real. Nicely done on that. I also found the first half of the story pretty exciting with car chases, running through corridors,stealing a flying saucer, and even running from aliens in a mine. The doctor remains a strong moral character throughout..I also appreciated the romance between an alien husband and wife couple.

On the downside, I think the story loses a little momentum towards the end, and the story does show itself a tad naive on the Cold War, with Colonel Stark only slightly less crazy than General Cutler from the First Doctor story, "The Tenth Planet."

Overall, this is a good Doctor Who story. It'll make no one's top Ten list, but it's worth viewing particularly if you enjoyed David Tennant's Doctor.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't care for it. April 11, 2014

Although I am a Doctor Who fan, this was not a story I liked. I can't explain it too well, but I don't like the subject. Many people are affected by the unknown and this offers some kind of conclusion to an issue not understood. See, I told you I had trouble explaining it. The voice acting was great and the animation was well done.

I did not know these were made to begin with. The whole process from payment to delivery was perfect. The DVDs were very well done and the story line was typical Doctor Who quality! Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Who?
A cartoon version of Dr. Who that is very enjoyable. The animation is simple but clean and does not detract from the story, which is keeping with the Dr. Who genre.

3 hour documentary?
There is indeed a second disc with 3 seperate "Doctor Who Greatest Moments" specials: 1. The Doctor, 2. The Companions, and 3. The Enemies. It should be noted, however, that these are only "New Who", no classic Who included.

Delayed five months? Huh?!?
Doctor Who North America says it is still scheduled for May. I e-mailed them yesterday after I saw Amazon zip the date out to October.

Keep an eye on their site to order sooner.
