Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

I have to admit, Doctor Who's dazzling 1080i/VC-1 encode took me by complete surprise. Compared to Sherlock's bleak (but beautiful) presentation, watching The Complete Fifth Series is like being slapped in the face with a rainbow; a blazing, razor-sharp rainbow hellbent on doing whatever weird and wonderful things it wishes to your eyes. Primaries are punchy yet convincing, perfectly saturated skintones deftly weather the most colorful CG storms, blacks are absorbing on the whole, and contrast is nice and vibrant throughout. Yes, every special-effects seam is more apparent than ever -- all hail the Great Green Screen -- but the technical image is sound. I didn't notice any significant artifacting or banding, aliasing and ringing are kept to a negligible minimum, and the series' grainy disposition only succumbs to a few annoying bursts of noise per episode (each of which are inherent to the source). And detail? I wasn't expecting anything like this. Fine textures are exquisitely resolved (in all but the most VFX-slathered shots), fabrics and textiles are almost tangible enough to touch, delineation rarely falters, edges are exceedingly crisp and clean (again, barring the softer CG elements that appear), and closeups reveal every scratch, pore and misplaced hair that adorns the actors' faces. Interlaced though it may be, the Blu-ray edition of Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series looks fantastic. Jaws will be dropped.


Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Series Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Complete Fifth Series also features a brawny DTS-HD High Resolution 5.1 surround track (at 2.0Mbps) that complements its video presentation nicely. Dialogue, though a tad thin at times, is generally warm, well-prioritized and crystal clear. Even when the action heats up and the Doctor finds himself in danger, voices (human or alien) aren't overwhelmed by the ensuing cosmic shenanigans. Moreover, robust LFE support grants explosions and implosions deafening power, crashing spacecraft and invading starships serious oomph, and alien assaults weighty malice and menace. The soundscape drifts over the top quite often, sure, but the vast majority of these over-reaching sonic flourishes trace back to Moffat, not BBC Video. Through it all, clinks, clunks, whirs, whizzes, bleeps, boops and a variety of impish effects dart about the soundfield before attacking the listener from every direction. If anything, the series' score -- enveloping as it can be -- sometimes bullies other elements in the soundfield, every now and then to the track's detriment. It isn't a debilitating issue by any means, but it made its way into my notes on more than one occasion. Still, BBC Video's DTS-HD HR mix adds even more value to a value-packed release.
