Critic Reviews for Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The Day Of The Doctor
Moffat, the cleverest of Doctor Who show-runners, approaches it with the same clockwork precision he lavishes on his season arcs, where every tossed-off curve or surprise twist is actually ingeniously woven into the big picture.
(NO SPOILERS.) A culminative reflection on the reboot's characterization of the Doctor, a respectful hat tip to the decades that preceded the show's return to the airwaves in 2005, and a jumping-off point for...the next fifty years of Who.
Audience Reviews for Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special: The Day Of The Doctor
One of the greatest and longest running series of all-time gives us one of the greatest Doctor Who episodes ever made. A spectacularly enjoyable and exhilarating thrill-ride. I absolutely loved it. It delivers a visually satisfying and stunning mixture of mystery, action, adventure, humor, heart and surprises. A wickedly funny and tremendously entertaining event that has you loving every minute of it. The brilliant trio of Matt Smith, John Hurt and David Tennant is just absolute gold. They have fantastic chemistry together and deliver strong and thrilling performances. Smith and Tennant are outstanding, its amazing to see these two incredible actors together playing The Doctor and you can tell they are having a marvelous time working together. Hurt is magnificent, he truly has earnerd the right to be called The Doctor, he brings great weariness and regret to the character and his early days before his predecessors and just shines in every scene he is in. Writer-Show runner, Steven Moffat delivers an extraordinary script with plenty of references and ideas and puts in the hands of Director, Nick Harran and creates something truly wonderful and special.
An fitting 50th Anniversary Special for Doctor Who; even better than the Five Doctors. The plot is intricate and interesting, but well pieced-together so it all makes perfect sense. It fills the gap between the old series and the new series nicely. The emotional impact is strong as powerful surprises are revealed.
Slightly disappointed but nonetheless Doctor Who fans will be very impressed! loved how they incorporated everyone! Good fun!
