Doctor Who 6.x – Night and the Doctor

Doctor Who‘s sixth series came with some mini-episodes on the home video release. These are just for giggles, and our son definitely appreciated the low-stakes, timey-wimey simplicity of them. He really found a lot that he did not enjoy in series six, but these were more his speed, and he liked these very much.

Interestingly, the third and fourth stories play with the idea of being River’s first and final dates with the Doctor, which you’d have thought that they would have saved for a television story instead of a DVD bonus. In the end, it doesn’t really matter, because a few years later, Steven Moffat thought better of the second idea and, offscreen, the older eleventh Doctor does not take River to the place where they’ll have their final date. He saves that for his next self.
