Product Description

Doctor Who: The Infinite Quest (DVD)

Amazon.com

Doctor Who fans mourning the departure of David Tennant can get another dose with The Infinite Quest, an animated adventure that pits the Tenth Doctor against a space pirate in pursuit of a vessel that can make dreams come true. After halting the pirate Baltazar's scheme to compress the population of Earth into diamonds, Tennant's Doctor and companion Martha (voiced by Freema Agyeman) are caught up in a quest to find three datachips that will reveal the aforementioned ship, dubbed "The Infinite." Their search takes them across the universe, where they tangle with living skeletons, insect armies, and imprisonment on an ice planet before crossing paths again with Baltazar for control of "The Infinite." Well-voiced by Tennant, Agyeman, and Anthony Head (himself a Who vet, but forever Giles from Buffy), The Infinite Quest originally aired in serial form on the BBC children's series Totally Doctor Who, and it retains its kid-friendly balance of plentiful action and engaging (if not terribly complex) storyline; longtime Who fans that may want to use the feature as an introduction to the series for younger viewers will be pleased to note nods to the show's elaborate mythology, including name-drops of previous foes like the Nestenes and Great Vampires. One wishes the animation was more fluid, as that may make Quest more palatable to first-time Who viewers raised on Disney and Pixar, but the fanciful story, plethora of exotic creatures, and Tennant's fun performance should hold most attention spans. The DVD includes a battery of extras, most of which follow Tennant and friends as they record their lines; a smattering of unfinished deleted scenes and chats with the animators will probably hold interest only for grown-ups. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Episodic and meant for the younger viewers... September 5, 2008
Format:DVD
This release assembles the individual weekly bits of a Doctor Who animated adventure originally broadcast on a BBC Children's activity show based around the BBC TV Show "Doctor Who" in 2006-7. It's the first time it's been available here in the U.S.

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 perfect for family viewing. Four out of five stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting diversion for hardcore fans December 26, 2008
Format:DVD
As an American fan of Doctor Who, I knew nothing about this animated version until this DVD was released in the U.S. But I was intrigued by the very idea of an animated Doctor Who, and it's VERY inexpensive compared to the full-season sets, so I decided to give it a try.

As others have said, the overall feel of the show is that it is aimed at younger viewers (ironically, the BBC apparently considers the live-action WHO a kid's program, and everyone I know who watches it is over 30). The plot reminded me a bit of watching the old Space Ghost cartoons from the 60's.

While the characters and background are beautifully rendered, the animation is a bit limited. This is apparently the new accepted style for many animated series, but it takes some getting used to if you're a fan of classic cartoons.

And while the voice acting does appear lackluster at times, I thought Anthony Head (who also appears in the 2nd season episode "School Reunion") does a fine job as the villain.

Extras include brief behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of the program. While it's good to see David Tennant and the others working outside their normal venues, most folks will probably watch the bonus features once and never again.

Overall, The Infinite Quest is a mixed bag. If you're a hardcore WHO fan, you'll get a kick out of it. Casual fans, and those uninitiated to the world the time-traveling Time Lord, will probably wonder what the big deal is.

4.0 out of 5 stars cartoon doctor who adventures are good fun September 6, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
BBC america shop needs to thanked for bringing this out in this region.
At first there was some doubt wether we would ever see this dvd available here. Many fans went to the bbc america shop website and recommended this and it made a difference. This is a fun cartoon adventure for the whole family which is worth buying and adding to your doctor who collection. After all the classic doctor who stories and newer doctor who are family friendly too. I would suggest going both to the bbc doctor who site and the bbc america shop site and asking for further unreleased cartoon adventures that are provided from the online doctor who site as well. There is even a cartoon adventure of a version of the doctor played by richard e grant. Anyways if you love doctor who you will enjoy this cartoon version of the newest doctor , and the price is very affordable too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good little episode December 6, 2008
By Addy
Format:DVD
This is one of the good small adventures fit for both adults and kids. It's similar to the key to time adventure. A must have for Doctor Who fans. I love the animation and I enjoyed that they animated the title sequence. I'm happy that the same actors came back to do the voices and Anthony Head makes a brilliant villain.

3.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining watch, but a bit thin March 13, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The story was entertaining but the plot was kinda weak. It definately seemed geared more towards children than true fans of Dr. Who. My Children love this video by the way. It runs like a Doctor Who version of 'Treasure Planet,' only not as good. There is very limited intracate thinking like you see in the shows.

I certianly hope that the makers of Doctor Who continue to try this media, but come at it with the adult viewer in mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cartoon Who February 2, 2009
By Teleri
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
An enjoyable episode of Dr. Who, not mind-shattering or anything, but accessible to younger children - I got it for an 8 & a 10 year old, who both loved it (& they are GIRLS, BTW). I especially got a kick out of Giles, er, Anthony Stewart Head, playing the villain :D There is a nice Special Features section with interviews w/Anthony, David Tennant & Freema Agyeman :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Animated Episode of Dr. Who for the Younger Set June 12, 2010
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this animated feature. It was a nice story with a great cast (Anthony Head, Giles of Buffy fame who has done several episodes of the new Who series as the villain). The animation was top notch. They matched the opening of the show beautifully. I would love to see a full episode animated for the adult set, although this did touch upon the unrequited love of Martha for the Doctor briefly at the end. It was better than I thought it would be. There are many extras on the disc including animation trials and behind the scenes interviews and voice over recordings with the actors (which I love). The Dr. Who staff really does a great job of giving fans behind the scenes info that we just love. It also showcases just how great David Tennant is with voice work. I miss him greatly in the new series. I think it is a great edition to the Who collection and I hope they do more of this type of show, but lean towards the adults more.
