Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 5

  • Jan 09, 2022
    Amy and Rory join the doctor. If the episode Vincent doesn't make you emotional/tear up then nothing will
  • Jan 03, 2022
    Matt's freshman season was a great introduction to the show. Made me go back and watch everything that came before back to 1963.
  • Oct 09, 2021
    Not a bad start for Matt Smith. The show has some good parts to it, but it also has "The Time of Angles" and "Flesh and Stone" which, in my opinion, completely ruin the weeping angles for me. But other than that, it's decent.
  • Aug 14, 2021
    A true high point of doctor who.
  • Jun 13, 2021
    the best season of the show bar none. greatest ever series opener, one of my favourite two part finales, compelling character arcs for the doctor, amy, rory and river, some of the single greatest episodes in new who (vincent, amy's choice, the lodger), an awesome series arc and overall its brilliant.
  • Feb 14, 2021
    Even though I do quite enjoy Matt Smith as the Doctor, I much rather prefer David Tennant - 11th is too dynamic and even rushed. The series seem to be a bit too teenagery, though actors are great
  • Dec 29, 2020
    I think everyone was expecting for the worse because of what happened at the end of the previous season, but we were rewarded with a good Doctor, a very good actor and good writing. It just takes a few episodes to settle (despite the great first episode), that why the 4.5 stars.
  • Dec 13, 2020
    S5 was a very rocky start to Matt Smith's Doctor, which is my favorite, but it's still enjoyable to watch for his and the companions' performances. The strongest points in the season were his premiere, the weeping angels two-parter, "Amy's Choice", the beautiful "Vincent and the Doctor", and the lovely season finale. James Corden's episode was great fun, too. The show inarguably got exponentially better when Moffat took over, and continued to get even better.
  • Nov 07, 2020
    an awesome series of doctor who with a brand new doctor as Matt Smith and an excellent series arc.
  • Mar 27, 2020
    Moffats best series.
