Matt Smith and Karen Gillan make their triumphant return as the Doctor and his companion in an all-new series of Doctor Who! The new series will split in two parts, with DVD/Blu-ray release dates in July and in early November, closely following their premiere runs on BBC America, and then a complete series gift set just in time for the holidays. In Part 1, the Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves in Sixties America, battling the invasion the world forgot, then journey on the high seas of 1696 aboard a pirate ship, to solve the mystery of the Siren. In a bubble universe at the very edge of reality, the Doctor meets an old friend with a new face, and in a monastery on a remote island in the near future, an industrial accident takes on a terrible human shape. And waiting for them, at the end of all this, is the battle of Demon's Run, and the Doctor's darkest hour. Can even the truth about River Song save the Time Lord's soul? Only two things are certain. Silence will fall. And a good man is going to die...]]>
Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1 offers fans concrete assurance that the venerable series remains in good hands with Steven Moffat as head writer and executive producer, as well as a tantalizing direction for the program in the episodes to come. Extras on the Blu-ray set are limited to a pair of Monster Files featurettes, which explore the creation and execution of the Silence and the Gangers in considerable detail, including interviews with the cast and crew (save Smith) and behind-the-scenes footage. --Paul Gaita

Top Customer Reviews
Starts things off with a bang (rather literally). The word "impossible" in the title is well-deserved: something you would never have expected to happen really does. Feels more like a typical DW series finale in scope rather than a premiere, and makes for a nice change from the norm. Lots of new plot threads introduced, some new development added to old ones...including the revelation of the Silence, definitely the scariest monster Steven Moffat has created so far.
Episode 2: Day of the Moon
It's hard to believe after watching Episode One, but this episode is even more incredible and jaw-dropping. All the stars get a chance to stretch their acting muscles and add some layers to their characters. Plus, we're treated to what is probably the most shocking cliffhanger ever to be seen in Doctor Who.
Episode 3: The Curse of the Black Spot
Fun but forgettable. A simplistic romp which adds little to the main story arc. It's not terrible, but it falls far short of the show's usual standard of quality (which admittedly was pushed very high by the premiere).
Episode 4: The Doctor's Wife
Definitely the best of this set of episodes. It's so surprising and incredible that I can't say much about it without spoiling the genius of its premise. You aren't a true Whovian unless you've seen this, and even if you're not an avid fan, I guarantee you'll love it.
Episode 5: The Rebel Flesh
An enjoyable return to traditional Who. Very creepy "monsters" (though I'm not sure the term actually applies here). Thought-provoking and engaging. Plus, some things introduced in this episode will become very, very important in the future...Read more ›
I for one will wait until they release the entire set, all 14 episodes, with the Confidentials, the episode prequels, the commentaries, and all the other goodies. Frankly, if you don't get those, then why should you pay for something you could just as easily torrent?
Doctor Who Season 6 brings everything to the table a Who-fan would come to expect; you've got very interesting episodes all featuring a new story, intertwined by an underlying story that climaxes as the series progresses. Many questions are answered and, of course, even more questions are raised.
I do feel as though the show has been tailored a bit towards Matt Smith's style, though I can assure you this is not a bad thing. Every Doctor has their own "thing" that makes you fall in love with them; Christopher Eccleston with his "Fantastic!" catch phrase, very enthusiastic voice, and strong emotion for Rose. David Tennant with his unique mannerisms, "Allons-y!", and admiration of his own brilliance. Matt Smith with his "*insert object here*'s are cool!", his insistence on calling Amelia, "Pond", regardless of the fact she's married, and his love for both Rory and Amy. This series is the scariest, most thrilling of them all, so watch out for that...!
The trio of Amy, Rory, and the Doctor balance out much better in this series than in the previous. I've always felt that the drama between the Doctor and Rory fighting over Amy was silly. It was a little too outlandish; even for Doctor Who. However, they've stabilized that, allowing for them all to get along perfectly. Amy has her heart in the right place, knowing that although the Doctor will always be there, Rory will always be her Roranicas, her Roman in shining armor. The girl and boy who waited.Read more ›
