Editorial Reviews

In this hugely anticipated follow-up to the record breaking Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, we bid adieu to Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith and welcome Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It, The Hour) in his first televised appearance as the new Doctor. Orbiting a quiet backwater planet, the massed forces of the universe's deadliest species gather, drawn to a mysterious message that echoes out to the stars. And amongst them - the Doctor. Rescuing Clara from a family Christmas dinner, the Time Lord and his best friend must learn what this enigmatic signal means for his own fate and that of the universe. This landmark episode is bound to be a thrilling adventure for the ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Many Questions Answered, Many More Arise December 26, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Expectations were high. Anticipation was great. We knew a new Doctor was coming. We had new revelations about Gallifrey and just which Doctor Matt Smith was actually playing. We also had a couple of years with stories of cracks in time and space, a plot to kill the Doctor, etc. The Time of the Doctor was always where this was headed - and I do think that Steven Moffat had a pretty good idea of the general outline of things to come.

This Christmas Special, The Time Of The Doctor, managed to wrap up everything in an hour. It didn't feel rushed. It didn't feel cheap. It didn't feel like the Eleventh Doctor was being cheated. In fact, it was a beautiful and wonderful exit for him. Without spoiling, he was able to do something he never really has in the past: stop running. He stayed for Christmas - and you'll understand that when you watch the special.

New questions emerge as the old ones are answered - and I shall not ask them here. Make sure you have tissues as the show closes out because this is a tough goodbye that we all knew was coming. Yet it was wonderful and the Doctor was honored as one who had accomplished much. Just as we opened Christmas gifts, so the Doctor received his big Christmas gift at the end. It is also a gift for all of us as we continue to enjoy the adventures of the Doctor.

I'm sure some will nitpick because that's how they are. Some will complain that all of the Doctor Who universe has just collapsed. Some will complain of time being rewritten (silly, since the Doctor makes a habit of that). Yet nothing really changes. After The Day Of The Doctor, the earlier incarnations of him had no idea that Gallifrey was saved - they forgot what had happened when the time streams merged. So things do change as they always have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! December 26, 2013
By Anne

What a farewell to Matt Smith! I thought it was very well done. I was a bit worried when I heard that "all the Doctor's enemies" were going to be there, but they did a very good job of not overwhelming the episode with every single monster, though I think we saw them all. I thought the ending was very well done and I'll admit I teared up just a bit. I've enjoyed Matt Smith as the Doctor, but I can't wait to see Peter Capaldi. I know he'll do a fantastic job!

5.0 out of 5 stars Time of the Doctor episode was brilliant December 26, 2013
By C. Gold
Verified Purchase
The Time of the Doctor doesn't have as many special effects shots or epic scenes that the 50th anniversary had. However, it makes up for that by having the best regeneration of any Doctor (I've seen them all) and is a must see just for that alone. I was giggling gleefully while it was going on. Also, Peter Capaldi's brief bit was as madly funny as I expected.

I saw some people complaining about the plot feeling somewhat contrived. I enjoyed the small town setting, it was beautiful in the sunlight and I loved the villager's costumes. I also enjoyed the unique situation that happens between Clara and the Doctor - that's a first (not saying any more). I felt the emotional impact on the characters due to their situations in this story more than made up for any aspects of the plot that might be a bit holey.

I was also very impressed by the writing which gave really good heartfelt moments to several actors, not just Matt, and were evenly spread throughout the episode rather than saved for the end. Matt did get beautiful dialog to say pre-regeneration and he delivered it so amazingly well that I think that speech tops the one he just did at the end of the 50th special which I thought couldn't be topped.

Finally, I feel The Time of the Doctor was a beautiful, loving, brilliant send off for Matt's Doctor and I'm glad he got such a wonderful exit.

It was bittersweet to know the 2013 Christmas Special would mean Matt Smith's exit from the series. But it was exciting to think about how Steven Moffat would follow the 50th anniversary special and solve the regeneration dilemma, now that we know that Matt Smith was the 12th regeneration, the maximum for time lords. Of course, The Tine of the Doctor also needed to feel grand, expansive and complete enough to stand on its own, coming on the heels of the mammoth 50th Anniversary Special: Doctor Who: The Day of The Doctor. Steven Moffat rises to the occasion yet again. Time of the Doctor is a beautiful, satisfying send-off for Matt Smith. [no spoilers here]

5.0 out of 5 stars Farewell Matt Smith.... December 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
I liked it. They finally answered the question of how he was going to continue past his limit of regenerations. HIs transformation was Grand! And as we loved this actors work. He showed us he loved his time as the Doctor and didn't want to leave even when he was already gone. I will miss Matt Smith as the doctor but, I know I will enjoy the new episodes just as much. Peter Capaldi is a great actor and I feel he will walk in the doctors shoes very well. I am a fan of the doctor and I am glad to see the show continue to bring the great entertainment it has all my 47 years. I hope it will continue for a long time to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars All of Moffat's Strengths & Weaknesses December 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
Steven Moffat contributed some outstanding individual episodes to the rebooted Dr Who series back when Russell T Davis was lead writer and showrunner. Moffat also wrote a truly excellent transition episode, introducing the Matt Smith Doctor, that was far more convincing that any of RTD's transitions.

But...

As showrunner, Moffat has been something of a disappointment. It's not so much the over-ambitious story-arcs as the inability to manage emotions. Moffat's Doctor is too much the fast-moving slapstick clown without the pathos necessary to provide emotional depth. Worse yet is Moffat's addiction to The Great Reset Button In The Sky. In Moffat's universe loss is something to be avoided, so people keep dying (poor Rory in particular) over and over again and being brought back over and over again until frankly we don't care. Moffat doesn't seem able, as a writer, to grasp that without the possibility of loss there's no possibility of really engaging the audience's emotions. When we know it's all going to be yet another conjuring trick we get bored. Very seriously bored.

So here, in the swan-song episode for Matt Smith's Doctor, we get the standard Moffat tropes. Worse, we get a cursory "tie up the loose ends" overlay that doesn't work on any level at all. There's neither intellectual nor emotional consistency - just a superficial gloss that fails utterly to convince. It's as if Moffat is emotionally autistic, so clumsy is the writing at times. There's just one tiny moment right before the very end that is genuinely touching and the effect, at this late stage, is simply to make the viewer think "how did that slip through the Moffat filter??"

Now that we have a new Doctor in the shape of Peter Capaldi, perhaps we can hope earnestly for a new showrunner.

Is The Time of The Doctor available in any boxed sets?
The series 7 set came out months before this episode even aired.... Maybe it will be on the series 8 one but that won't be out for a long time yet.
