Doctor Who: The Snowmen

 (TV) (2012)

Doctor Who: The Snowmen Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Christmas Eve, 1892, and the falling snow is the stuff of fairytales. When the fairytale becomes a nightmare and a chilling menace threatens Earth, an unorthodox young governess, Clara, calls on the Doctor for help. But the Doctor is in mourning, reclusive and determined not to engage in the problems of the universe. As old friends return, will the Doctor really abandon humankind, or will he fight to save the world and Christmas from the icy clutches of this mysterious menace?

For more about Doctor Who: The Snowmen and the Doctor Who: The Snowmen Blu-ray release, see Doctor Who: The Snowmen Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Arthur Darvill, Alex Kingston, David Tennant, Christopher Eccleston

Doctor Who: The Snowmen Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Doctor Who: The Snowmen offers a strong, stable 1080i/AVC-encoded video presentation that, minor flaws aside, is comparable to those featured on previous high definition releases of the show. Detractors will continue to complain that the image is too noisy, with a hyper-sharp, faux-filmic harshness that undermines the integrity of the special. Rather than quibble over the show's aesthetic, though, let's focus on the precision and proficiency of the encode. Color, contrast and clarity adhere to the showrunners' intentions, black levels are suitably deep when called upon, and detail is terrific, with crisp edge definition and exceedingly revealing textures. Delineation suffers and crush is out in force, but both trace back to the source, not BBC Home Entertainment's efforts or the quality of the presentation. Likewise, slight, almost negligible aliasing and ringing pops up from time to time, but barely registers, much less distracts. On the whole, The Snowmen looks every bit as fantastic as it should. It isn't always an attractive special -- the visual effects leave something to be desired, the unevenness of the grain-like noise is undeniable, the shadows are thick and heavy, and that patented BBC "video" feel is in full swing -- and yet no Who fan should be surprised at this point. This is The Snowmen as it was shot and prepped for broadcast, and its Blu-ray release couldn't fare much better than it does.


Doctor Who: The Snowmen Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Ditching DTS-HD High Resolution audio for the first time, Doctor Who: The Snowmen, like Series Seven, Part Two, boasts a full-fledged DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track. And while the difference between DTS-HD HR and DTS-HD MA may be minute, the show's most recent eight episodes leave a mark. LFE output is bold and booming. Rear speaker activity is dense and convincing, with smooth pans, accurate directionality and an enveloping soundfield that makes the most of the snow creature attacks, the ice governess chase and the showdown with the Great Intelligence. Better still, overall dynamics are excellent and dialogue is clean, clear and perfectly prioritized at all times.
