Product Description

The Doctors embark on their greatest adventure in this 50th Anniversary Special. In 2013, something terrible is awakening in London’s National Gallery; in 1562, a murderous plot is afoot in Elizabethan England; and somewhere in space, an ancient battle reaches its devastating conclusion. All of reality is at stake as the Doctor’s own dangerous past comes back to haunt him.

This could have gone so very wrong. There are so many elements that shouldn't have worked, but in the end the Doctor's 50th anniversary was a rousing success. I'm going to start this review off by saying that I will offer no spoilers beyond the confirmation that, quite regrettably, Christopher Eccleston does not appear in Day of the Doctor. It is disappointing but thankfully Smith, Hurt, Piper, and Tennant more than make up for his absence.

A phone call from U.N.I.T. sets off a fascinating chain of events that eventually brings 11, 10, and the Warrior together. The action is fast, the story is fun, the Doctors are an absolute joy to watch, and by the end of the special, the series will be headed in a bold new direction. There are several other surprise appearances that I will absolutely not spoil. Suffice to say that fans, new and old, will be very, very happy with them.

This special was as close to perfect, without Eccleston, as it could get, though I do wish the villains were a little more threatening, though that is nothing more than a nitpick. Smith and Tennant are simply marvelous together, and John Hurt only makes them more fun to watch. All in all, The Day of the Doctor is a fantastic tale that no Whovian should miss.

The show itself is good with its ups and downs, but I am here to say the 3D is mind blowingly good.
Definitely up there with the best live action 3D I have ever seen. Being Blu Ray this should be even better than what I saw.
But the resolution was fantastic. The imagery was highly dimensional and I can't even imagine watching this episode in 2D.
You wouldn't be seeing a world in a painting. It would be like a black and white picture telling you how colorful a painting is.
Everything about it is first rate at least for the first forty minutes. Then a little less attention gets paid to the 3D aspect.

I hope this spurs more 3D broadcasts because it was such a great experience. 3D on televisions is so well done and yet there is so little content readily available to customers who own 3D capable sets. Hopefully Netflix will get this one soon so more people will have access. (Netflix is one of the only streaming service providing some 3D content) Almost a must have for fans of the Doctor and 3D.

Just saw the 50th anniversary episode on BBC America. It is totally brilliant. The writing is amazing. Moffat tied the 12 (yep, I said 12) doctors together seamlessly. I will be ordering this dvd so I can see it over and over again.

Day of the Doctor is absolutely fantastic. A bit slow at first but the moment David Tennant comes on screen, You will flip out...in a good way mind you. Matt Smith is good as always and works great with David and John Hurt really ties it all together and is fantastic as War Doctor, I hope we see more of him in the future.

I love the nod to Tom Baker, the 4th Doctor, at the end of the special and I love how Peter Capaldi, the 12th Doctor, appears during a sequence with every other doctor during the big scene near the end of the special. It makes me far more excited to see him as the doctor.

Overall, Without a doubt it's a great special and well worth buying. I just wish Eccleston would have taken the time to film at least one scene for it because it not only would have made it that much more better but it would have been a real treat to the fans.

This episode shows Whovians some old friends and revisits an old story, yet can be comprehended and enjoyed by a civilian watching Doctor Who for the first time. Perfect!

The documentary, "An Adventure in Space and Time", is also first-rate, providing some of the history of Doctor Who but not "spoiling" any of the episodes, so long as the viewer already knows what a Dalek is :)

Now that I've also purchased the DVD/BluRay combo:
Who needs both the DVD and the BluRay/BluRay 3D in the same package? I'd have preferred more extras on a second disc, considering the number of BBC specials there were leading up to the 50th Anniversary episode. Also, trading cards were included. Why??

The Day of the Doctor was a fantastic episode. It was filled with Classic Who references to make long time fans happy and plenty of Tennant and Smith for newer Who fans to enjoy. It as a very well done episode that also lays the groundwork for some exciting new possibilities for the show. I'm not going to get into any specifics about the plot in the event someone reading this hasn't seen it yet. Overall it was a fantastic anniversary episode.

A note on pricing: I odered the Doctor Who: The 50th Anniversary Collection [HD] TV Pass on Friday 11/22 and have received all of the content that was already available at that time that wasn't free for $2.84 each. And I've received each subsequent purchase in the collection, including The Day of the Doctor, for $2.84. It would have been nice if Amazon could have done a better job letting people know ahead of time the post-airing price for The Day of the Doctor would jump to $7.99 but I don't know how such pricing and price changes actually work.
