Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor ★★★

BBC, 60 min., not rated, DVD: $14.98, Blu-ray: $19.98

This 2013 Doctor Who Christmas special (the 800th episode!) marks the end of Matt Smith's run as the Doctor, sending him and Clara (Jenna Coleman) on an adventure to a town called Christmas, which is located on a planetary body that is emitting a strange signal. Their escapade leads to a centuries-long battle to save the hidden planet of the Time Lords from the Doctor's worst enemies, including the Weeping Angels, the Cybermen, and the Daleks. Boasting another of the densely woven scripts created by series producer Steven Moffat, the story zips through time, ricochets off events from previous episodes, and ends with the Doctor's next incarnation in the form of actor Peter Capaldi. Ripping along at a furious pace—stuffed with invention and humor—this is a fun ride for the show's fervent cult followers. Extras include behind-the-scenes featurettes. While this is likely to end up in the eventual complete season set release, Doctor Who junkies will want to see it now. Recommended.
