Matt Smith returns as the Eleventh Doctor in thirteen blockbuster episodes plus two specials, each a brand new epic adventure with new monsters and familiar foes like you've never seen them before. In The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe, a madcap caretaker greets evacuee Madge Arwell and her two children and leads them into a magical wintry world. Then, the first part of series seven sees the Ponds (Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill) in their final voyage with The Doctor. They save a spaceship full of dinosaurs, don Stetsons in the Wild West and are even kidnapped by The Doctor's oldest foe. But when they arrive in Manhattan the Weeping Angels are waiting for them. Christmas brings The Doctor a new friend (Jenna-Louise Coleman) but how, where, and when will he meet her? And the final eight episodes see The Doctor and his new companion battle monsters on distant alien planets, become trapped in a Russian submarine with a deadly passenger, chase terrifying ghosts, and come face to face with an army of upgraded Cybermen, while The Doctor's oldest secret threatens to be revealed. Packed with extras, the complete seventh series is not to be missed.

However, as much as I liked the series, I'm very disappointed in one aspect of the series, hence the loss of one star. This has nothing to do with the episodes themselves, but with what they chose to leave out of the series packaging. I can see, sort of, leaving out the special The Day of the Doctor. After all it had both Matt Smith and David Tennant as doctors 10 and 11, as well as John Hurt as the War Doctor, plus even a cameo by Tom Baker, though, maybe, not as the 4th Doctor. And it was billed as a 50th Anniversary Special, so even though it was part of the Matt Smith series 7, I can see it existing outside of the normal run of episodes.
What I can't see is leaving out the episode The Time of the Doctor from the 7th series collection. It was not a special in the normal sense of the word. It was a normal length episode that concluded Matt Smith's run as the Doctor and had his regeneration into the 12th Doctor, portrayed by Peter Capaldi. This is a crucial episode that rightly is the last episode of series 7. To leave it out and sell it as a separate special is totally inconsistent with the practices of all the past collections. It means that, when you buy the 7th series, you never see the actual end of the 11th Doctor. It also means when you buy the 8th series, it just starts right up with Peter Capaldi already the 12th Doctor and no indication of how he became the Doctor. Of course, if you watched the show on BBCA, you already know what happened, but if you only see the show on the DVDs, it leaves a crucial gap.
There is no reason for leaving out The Time of the Doctor from the collection, except maybe just greed to make you spend $10 or $12 on the stand alone one hour DVD or Blu-ray, respectively. I, myself, have no intention of buying the stand alone episode. I saw it on BBCA and don't see is as being worth the money for just a one hour show. However, it does make me feel like my collection is incomplete missing that one crucial episode, and for that, the series 7 collection loses one star.
Clara was a interesting mystery which lost some of her charm by the last episode The Name of the Doctor. They kind of solved the mystery there in a way which I felt was a tad underwhelming.
Still, I enjoyed seeing the Daleks back in Asylum, the Cybermen back in Nightmare in Silver, even if both of this enemies acted a tad off. I would think the Daleks would see the Doctor as a greater threat than some music being played on a planet by an unknown human. But that's just me.
The Snowmen was interesting in how it brought back a old enemy for those of us who watched the original series and Cold War was wonderful for one who grew up in the Cold War and also liked the Ice Warriors.
A Town Called Mercy I enjoyed very much. It had a few plot twists, was set in an old Western town (which in fact is one in Spain where many of the great Westerns have been filmed), and starred Ben Browder as Isaac. He happens to be one of my favorite stars from Farscape (and later Star Gate), so I was very happy to see him.
overall I would say a Doctor Who fan would enjoy this season and should watch it to the end for to be prepared for the 50th anniversary special.
FYI: Clara is totally redeemed as a character in season 8. I'd watch it just to see Clara, now.
