Grade • A-

DVD • Our favorite time traveler got his groove back in "Doctor Who: Series Seven, Part Two," in eight episodes that introduced The Doctor (Matt Smith) to his most intriguing companion in ages: Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman), "The Impossible Girl" who we have seen die twice (once in the Christmas episode, "The Snowmen," also out on DVD).

The Doctor and Clara took so many side trips (the best being a Cybermen attack scripted by Neil Gaiman) that producer Steven Moffat seemed to be avoiding the mystery he created. That is, until the Moffat-scripted finale, "The Name of the Doctor," which reveals Clara’s special role, evokes memories of Doctors past, brings back The Doctor’s love River Song (Alex Kingston), and sets up a new mystery — and introduces John Hurt "as The Doctor"(?!?) — just in time for the series’ 50th-anniversary special in November.
