Review & #Giveaway - Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe


ABOUT THE FILM:

It’s Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home, in this year’s “Doctor Who” Christmas Special, starring Matt Smith as the Doctor.

He promises to repay her kindness – all she has to do is make a wish.

Three years later, a devastated Madge escapes war-torn London with her two children for a dilapidated house in Dorset. She is crippled with grief at the news her husband has been lost over the channel, but determined to give Lily and Cyril the best Christmas ever.

The Arwells are surprised to be greeted by a madcap caretaker whose mysterious Christmas gift leads them into a magical wintry world. Here, Madge will learn how to be braver than she ever thought possible. And that wishes can come true…







MY THOUGHTS:


I recently received a copy of Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe to review.  I was really excited because I had yet to see this particular special.  Matt Smith is always brilliant when he plays the role of the Doctor and this DVD is no exception.  I was swept away by this fantastic science-fiction masterpiece.  If you haven't had a chance to see any of the episodes of Doctor Who yet, The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe is a fine place to start.

  11. My wife introduced me to The Doctor a few years ago. I even purchased DVDs of some of the older shows. Great series. Never know what to expect. I like that The Doctor evolves into someone new. This DVD would be a great addition to my small Dr. Who DVD collection.
