In the opening sequence of the series the caption reads "New Mexico Desert June 13, 1947" and there is a green Interstate Highway directional sign which reads "Roswell 35m 'Interstate 25 shield' Please drive carefully..." Roswell NM is located 125 miles to the east of US Interstate 25, and the U.S. Interstate Highway System was not even authorized by Congress until 1956. The first instance of any Green Directional Signage wasn't until the Late 1950s in Florida. See more »

Doctor Who and Area 51
10 November 2010 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

During the semi-hiatus in the Nuwho series between seasons four and five, Russell Davies wrote four episodes for David Tennant and a couple of cartoon serials were produced. In this one, Tennant's Doctor tackles Area 51 in the 1950s, where (when?) they have some real flying saucers and aliens to deal with.

The story is a good Who and it is very pleasant to see the Doctor back in serial format, but while Phil Ford's script is up to standard, the animation is a bit bizarre -- advanced, but a bit caricaturish, and Tennant's voicing seems a bit off for the first two episodes.

I suspect that everyone thought that this one was for the kids and went that way, ignoring the fact that DOCTOR WHO is always for children. Still, the good script and the pleasure of Tennant's Doctor on any terms makes this a very pleasant experience for all fans of the show.
