Very promising start to the semi-new era.

[A] family-friendly science-fiction series redefined for the new millenium by an especially grand, generous spirit to its storytelling. [Blu-ray]

As 21st-century time lords go, Matthew Smith fits right in.

It felt a bit routine, as if keeping the machine running was now the paradigm.

Hang on to the TARDIS, fans, it looks like we're in for quite a ride.

April 3, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Sharply satirical and playfully dorky without getting bogged down in its own mythology, this iteration should continue to broaden the show's appeal.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 5

One of the best seasons of Doctor Who. With the possible exception of "Victory of The Daleks," every episode shines, with "Vincent and The Doctor" being in the race for one of the best episodes of series.


Super Reviewer

An unpleasant shock to wake up and find that this is the Doctor Who we are to be subjected to after the showrunner change.
