A 3D animated David Tennant stars in Dreamland.David Tennant's last appearance of the The Doctor to arrive on a Doctor Who DVD will arrive this spring with the animated Dreamland.

According to a BBC America news release, the CG-animated adventure will arrive in U.S. stores on May 4 for $24.98. Voiced by Tennant, The Doctor visits Dry Springs, Nev. in 1958 in an environment deliberately reminiscent of Roswell and the would-be New Mexico UFO crash.

In the one-off episode, The Doctor befriends a young waitress, Cassie, and her friend, Jimmy. When the Doctor examines an extraterrestrial artifact, he draws the attention of a mysterious man in black, an alien warrior and Colonel Stark, commander of "Dreamland" (the military base also known as Area 51).

From there, it's business as usual for The Doctor as he has to save the world from alien invaders and an overzealous military.

The two-disc set's bonus features will include a 3-part live action series retrospective (Doctor Who: "Greatest Moments"). The documentary on the series' history since its 2005 rebirth includes hour long looks at The Doctor, The Companions and The Enemies.

I've seen clips - I'll be buying this strictly for the extras.

Given the number of negative statements I've seen about the animation, I'm betting that's why they put a three-hour documentary on it - so people would buy it.

The animation is laughable, and not in a good way.

Do not pay $24.98 for 'Dreamland' unless you are (a) an absolute die-hard Doctor Who fan, (b) immune to disappointment, and (c) sufficiently well-off that you could also afford to set that $25 on fire just to watch it burn.

However, if you've been searching for an animated Doctor Who story that will give you renewed appreciation for the sublime artistry of 'The Ultimate Quest' and 'Scream of the Shalka', add 'Dreamland' to your shopping list.
