Doctor Who: The Complete Specials Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Of the five Doctor Who specials featured in BBC Video's 5-disc set, four arrive with able-bodied 1080i/VC-1 transfers that grant the series a polish and shine its fans will welcome with open arms. Colors -- be they searing blues, sunbeat oranges, or vivid reds -- are bold and beautiful, skintones are natural, and black levels are deep and satisfying (save a handful of poorly resolved nighttime shots, most of which appear in The End of Time). Contrast is quite strong as well, allowing actors and foreground objects to pop without sacrificing the integrity of the specials' increasingly complex backgrounds. Some rather noticeable banding and aliasing wreaks brief havoc on each interlaced transfer, and edge enhancement and artifacting occasionally makes their presence known, but more often than not, the overall presentations remain clean and stable. And detail? Definition is crisp, delineation is decent, and fine textures are abundant (although not nearly as consistent or rewarding as they are in Torchwood: The Complete Second Season). Note the cracks of reptilian skin, the flecks of rust mounting an assault on an aging bus, the tiny lettering on a Martian station's control panels, the tentacled jowls of a squid-toothed alien, the stitches on the Doctor's coat, the slightest freckles on his Companions' faces. It isn't always perfect, but wow moments are there for the taking.

The lone exception? The Next Doctor. While presented with a 1080i/VC-1 transfer, the set's first television special has been upscaled from a standard definition source, and it suffers accordingly. Heavy ringing, mediocre clarity, compression artifacts, dull blacks, mosquito noise, contrast wavering... you name it, it's there in some capacity. Still, considering the nature of the special's original source and the fact that BBC Video has commendably spelled out the discrepancy on the box's back cover, it's hardly a point of contention. Taken as a whole, The Complete Specials aren't going to blow anyone away, but they do offer a significant visual upgrade from their DVD and broadcast counterparts.

Doctor Who: The Complete Specials Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Doctor Who box set includes five decent DTS-HD High Resolution 5.1 surround tracks (not to be confused with lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mixes); each of which delivers a very similar, very competent sonic experience. Barring a few mid-action mishaps (the worst of which occur in The End of Time, Part Two), dialogue is clean and clear throughout, prioritization is solid, and voices, whether steeped in garbled alien mishmash or Timothy Dalton's immaculately enunciated English, hold court over the center channel. LFE output, though a tad two-dimensional on occasion, is bold and boisterous, infusing portals, wormholes, and surging energy the weight and heft they deserve. Moreover, pans are passable, directionality is adequate, dynamics are notable, and sound effects effortlessly whiz and wing their way across the soundfield on a regular basis. The rear speakers do tend to wax and wane throughout the set's specials, but still manage to craft five suitable soundfields nonetheless. Likewise, The Next Doctor is sometimes hobbled by its budget, but any complaints should be levied against Davies' sound design, not the BBC's technical track. Ultimately, fans will find little to complain about. The individual mixes aren't going to score any substantial praise, but they get the job done quite well.
