And so we come to the end of the road for our dear Ponds and welcome a new companion for The Doctor....soon enough. For now, through the magic of DVD, we can relive those final Pond adventures with the first half of Series 7!
This set includes:
This 2 disk set also includes bonus features with..
Asylum of the Daleks Prequel which has the Doctor having tea with a robed character who acts as sort of Doomsayer. It's a throw away bit, but you'll watch it anyway. The Science of Doctor Who is the gem of the set with actors and comedians providing geeky enthusiasm to the far out scifi concepts of the show and, as counterpoint, real scientists discussing the practicality of these devices. An excellent addition to your collection, to be sure! Pond Life is a quirky series of quickies with our favorite companion couple trying to lead normal lives amid the comings and goings of the Doctor, making their lives complete chaos at every turn. Heeeesterical. The Making of The Gunslinger is a futuristic look into the creation of the cybernetic soldiers from the episode "Town Called Mercy", narrated by the creator IN the show. Super futuristically creepy..sort of the exact opposite of the birth of Robocop. Finally we have Doctor Who at Comic Con, which is exactly what it sounds like. Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill take to the crowded halls of San Diego Comic Con and bring you along for the ride with bits from their panel, interview moments and just walking about taking the the enormity of it all. This cast is very charismatic and this shines through even when they are just being themselves.
While we here at Idle Hands are strong believers in waiting for the complete collection of a season, there is no telling if that set will include things like "The Science of", Pond Life and the Comic Con bits. Surely, a lot of this is available online, so that leaves the choice in your hands. If you want a truly complete collection, you will be getting this. If you can turn against your geeky nature and resist for the 6 months or so it may take for the full set to be released....you go right ahead and make that attempt.
