Editorial Reviews

The Doctor kicks off this new run of adventures by searching for his companion Clara - an Impossible Girl he's already lost twice. Together they find themselves battling monsters on distant alien planets, trapped in a Russian submarine with a deadly passenger, chasing terrifying ghosts, delving into the heart of the TARDIS, facing the Crimson Horror in Victorian Yorkshire, and coming face to face with an army of upgraded Cybermen. The action grows and the Doctor's oldest secret threatens to be revealed as the world's longest running science fiction series builds toward its explosive 50th anniversary.

The 2012 Christmas special, "The Snowmen", and it's Prequels, will not be part of the May release of Series 7 - Part 2. "The Snowmen" MAY be part of the Complete Season 7 DVD/Blu-Ray release, but BBC has not said so yet.
(You can purchase "The Snowmen" on its own for region 1, in DVD or Blu-Ray.)

[Added later: Yes, the Complete Series 7 will have "The Snowmen" PLUS a new commentary track with Michael Pickwoad (production designer) and Paul Spriggs (art director).]

The 8 episodes are only 45 minutes each. Though I love Doctor Who, I think the shorter time-frame does hobble the story-telling. Lots of detail crammed into a short time.

Wouldn't it be great if some of the new series had a commentary track like the Classic Doctor Who DVD's?
[Added August 2013: The Complete Season 7 does have four new commentary tracks, including on "The Snowmen" mentioned above. Matt Smith (about time he does a commentary!) and Jamie Payne (director) do the commentary on episode 7.9 "Hide". Hooray!]

Here are the Extras on the DVD issue of series 7 - Part 2:

1. Prequel to "The Bells of St. John" (2 min) The Doctor glumly sits on a swingset in a park. A young girl joins him, noticing that he's sad. He tells her he's lost something: "The first two times I met her, I just sort of bumped into her. So I thought, maybe, if I just wandered about a bit I might bump into her again. You know, like, destiny." Who is this understanding little girl?
2. "Clarence and the Whispermen" (2.5 minutes) Prequel to "The Name of the Doctor". Clarence is in prison, set to be hanged on the morrow. He opens his eyes and three ghastly creatures in top hats are watching him. "I know you're not real," Clarence cries, "You're just voices inside my head. Leave me alone!

One thing is constant in the world of Doctor Who, change is inevitable. Just as you get to know and love a Doctor and/or his companion, the series will pull the rug out and begin things anew. Some of the most dramatic moments of this current BBC incarnation of Doctor Who came in these episodes where we had to say goodbye. In the eight episodes that comprise "Doctor Who: Series Seven, Part Two" (that's a mouthful), we deal with two such cataclysmic shifts. First, the enigmatic Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman) takes center stage as a new companion after we bid farewell (very sadly) to Amy and Rory in the preceding DVD release of Series Seven, Part One. As if that were not traumatic enough, this is also the swan song of Matt Smith as the ever-changing Doctor. As such, these shows serve as a transitional period. Just as we acquaint ourselves with this new pairing, it has ended. And with the recent announcement that the brilliant Scottish actor Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It) will assume the mantle of Doctor for Season Eight, I suspect the tone of the show will change significantly.

I, therefore, have somewhat mixed feelings about this batch of episodes. While I like the easy chemistry of Smith and Coleman, the coupling was too brief to have the emotional heft of some of the longer running pairs. Coleman, in particular, is an intriguing new addition and learning more about her was one of the highlights here. For the first time, we had actually met this companion in prior episodes. Coleman had been on in two other storylines, and had died in both. So getting to the heart of her mystery is something that I was particularly interested in.

I am not a big fan of Matt Smith's tenure as the Doctor, a time travelling alien with a fondness for earth but these episodes, at the end of his time are the best of what he did.

Too much of his early adventures were marred by Smith's sense of comedy, like Roger Moore's later Bond films where camp comedy stopped them from having a sense of menace, if the actor doesn't take it seriously why should we, and his companions: The Ponds. A husband and wife team with Rory, the nurse and one of the most sensible companions ever and his wife Amy- a character so disliked in the fan community she was named "Pond Scum" by many. With the Ponds (yes they were really the Williams) Who lost its format of being the teacher and student/assistant sort of mode that it had maintained for nearly 50 years. It was more like 3 buddies out and the doctor was the one with the `car.'

With this set though it returned to format as the Doctor takes his new companion, Clara Oswald out into the galaxy. Smith is still annoying but Clara Oswald, played wonderfully by Jenna Coleman brings the show back on target.

Adventures include the evils of the social networks, cybermen running amok at an amusement park, aliens on a soviet submarine at the height of the 80's cold war tensions, and my favorite, investigating a haunted house in the north of Britain in the 1970's.In this last one smith's likeness to 2nd doctor, Patrick Troughton is clearly noted. There is also a set up to understand some of Clara's mysterious past and a beautiful lead in to the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, which I will admit Smith pulled off wonderfully.

I do not like Matt Smith's time as the Doctor but these adventures are the best he produced and belong in any fan's library.
