Here's Hoping There are Greater Moments to Come
DOCTOR WHO GREATEST MOMENTS is another of the seemingly innumerable puff pieces produced for the series since its revival in 2005. Originally intended to accompany one of the specials produced for 2009, it has been included in the US DVD release of animated serial DREAMLAND.
Although it includes a few clips from the 2005 season with Christopher Eccleston as the Ninth Doctor, it mostly concerns itself with David Tennant's Tenth Doctor, giving a one-hour course in its subject via clips with occasional appearances by series regulars and guest stars to comment on the subject.
I am not personally fond of clips as a way of indicating a subject. Out of the context in which they originally occurred, they tend to lose a lot of their power. However, as a cram course for someone coming into this series which has lasted, as of the writing of this review, forty-seven years, it serves its purpose well enough.
