Doctor Who - Series Six (Part Two)

By Silencio Lake, on the plane of Sighs, an impossible astronaut will rise from the deep and strike the Time Lord dead. The two-disc set collects the final six episodes of Series Six including The Doctor (Matt Smith) facing his death at the hands of River Song (Arthur Darvill).

Although the collection doesn't include a great stand-out episode there are several good episodes including "Let’s Kill Hitler" and "The Wedding of River Song" which wraps up River Song's story arc and gives us the conclusion of the series cliffhanger. Craig (James Corden) returns for "Closing Time" and Rory (Arthur Darvill) is forced to make an impossible decision in "The Girl Who Waited." We also get a spooky hotel, and the somewhat less spooky insides of of terrified child's cupboard.

Even if the extras include only a couple of Monster Files, Part Two a good wrap-up to Series Six and a nice compliment to Part One. And aside from the upcoming Christmas episode it's the only Doctor Who we're going to get for awhile.
