Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe

 (TV) (2011)

Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

It's Christmas Eve, 1938, when Madge Arwell comes to the aid of an injured Spaceman Angel as she cycles home. 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...

Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe spreads some post-Christmas cheer with an excellent 1080i/AVC-encoded presentation that's on par with the video quality of Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth and Sixth Series. Color and contrast are dead on, primaries are sure to grab your attention, skintones are chilly but natural, and black levels are nice and deep. Detail is terrific too, with wonderfully resolved fine textures, crisp edge definition, little to no ringing, and decidedly decent shadow delineation. Closeups, in particular, are nothing short of striking, and I didn't encounter anything that might lead me to believe the encode wasn't a near-perfect representation of the special's photography and source. As is the case with every episode of the show, grain-like noise is apparent throughout (and a bit uneven), but it rarely undermines the integrity of the image and never stands as a distraction. Artifacting, banding and aliasing are kept to a bare minimum as well, and the presentation is an exceedingly proficient one. As usual, Doctor Who leaves a lasting impression on Blu-ray. Fans of the series will find themselves grinning from ear to ear.


Doctor Who: The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Like previous Doctor Who releases, The Doctor, the Widow and the Wardrobe also features a solid 2.0 Mbps DTS-HD High Resolution 5.1 surround track (not to be confused with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mix). Dialogue is bright, festive and crystal clear, without a line lost to the WWII bombers, planetary acid storms or commandeered walkers that raise a ruckus from time to time. LFE output is bold and beefy too, even if it doesn't quite have the low-end oomph associated with a more robust lossless mix. Meanwhile, rear speaker activity is light and airy one minute, agile and aggressive the next, creating an engaging and entertaining experience that almost provides as much fun as the special itself. No, directionality isn't as convincing as it could be I suppose, and yes, a few scenes seem more subdued than they should. But the soundfield is enveloping nonetheless, enough so to draw listeners deeper and deeper into the at-times madcap adventure as it barrels along. All things considered, Whovians won't find much to complain about in the Doctor's wardrobe.
