5.0 out of 5 stars Season 5 is Delightful, September 12, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Doctor Who Season 5 (Amazon Instant Video)
I don't watch much televison past a daily news show and care little for following a series except one ... this one. I don't know why, but 'Doctor' Tom Baker drew me into it with what has become a decades long intrigue in this series through David Tennant's endearing portrayals. There's something about Doctor Who that is just plain fun for this Yank.

This episode starts Season 5 under the reigns of Steven Moffat and a new Doctor. Unless one had the 'spoilers', ep-1 left many fans a bit confused about the direction it would take and, therefore, concerns about how Matt Smith as The Doctor would fare. All those worries evaporated with the episode 12 and 13 finales, which I count as among the two best ever episodes. I firmly decided that Steven Moffat is an evil genius. He has manipulated me into actually buying a TV episode, which I NEVER do, on the suspicion that episode 1 is peppered with a zillion clues to Moffat's madness. Sure enough, it is.

It took special actors to carry this off. Matt, Karen, Arthur, Alex ... you are off-the-plot terrific. Thank you for your good work! New episodes return in December 2010 and a very special Xmas present, indeed!
