Doctor Who anniversary
6 July 2008 | by rnnbleasdale68See all my reviews

Every DVD needs a little feature like this, its funny, exciting, fresh and the Computer animation is simply wonderful. Rob Semenoff did the graphics here and they are pretty fantastic it must be said - how come this guy isn't working on the new series? I think the best thing about this doc is the wonderful montage at the end of the piece, I have watched it about 7 times and actually manages somehow to make you laugh, make you sad and teary eyed! How was this achieved? I think my favourite clip that was used is the one at the very end - the one with Patrick Troughton explaining why we are all here! Wonderful! All praise to Sheppard and Davies who are really upping the anti on this smashing DVD Range.
