Legs! I've got legs!,
This review is from: Doctor Who: The Complete Specials (The Next Doctor / Planet of the Dead / The Waters of Mars / The End of Time Parts 1 and 2) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Having just watched "End of Time" broadcast in both lo-def and hi-def, can say that blu-ray will make the most of some of the beautiful matte painting backdrops and sets. Not sure it matters as much for the extensive chase and action sequences - it's the slower parts that shine. You can really see the emotion on the faces of Dr and Master in some of the close conversations. e.g. "Can you hear it?" in End of Time part 1.
No spoilers other than those almost everywhere on the net, but Tennant goes out on a poignant note that's different and appropriate. Roaring action, wrenching choices, and a lot of interactions at the end that should please the fans, even if a little downbeat. The first Doctor in a long time (since Pertwee?) to really appreciate the 'mortality' of a regeneration.
Set seems a worthy addition to the collection. In order, would rate the episodes best first as
End Of Time,
Waters of Mars,
Planet of the Dead,
for any that want them individually.
