Product Description

No sooner has the Doctor said a tear-stained farewell to Rose Tyler than he finds himself face-to-face with a woman, played by comedienne Catherine Tate, dressed in a fluffy white wedding frock.

Who is she? Who is she supposed to be marrying? And how did she get on board the TARDIS?

This popular Doctor Who Christmas special aired in December 2006 and little did we know at that stage that Catherine Tate's Donna Noble might be back for more.

From Amazon.co.uk

A disc that features three more superb episodes from David Tennant's first series in the TARDIS, this DVD finds Doctor Who facing one of his deadliest opponents--the Cybermen.

The lethal foes are brought back to life in the first two episodes on this disc, Rise Of The Cybermen and The Age Of Steel. They find the Doctor, Rose and Mickey in an alternative version of Earth, where zeppelins dominate the London skyline and Roger Lloyd Pack's maniac genius is hard at work on an enhanced version of humankind. Ruthlessly harvesting humans, his work is soon revealed as the all-new Cybermen, who are as fatal as ever. And while the two-part story may cut the odd corner here and there, it's nonetheless a triumphant return in an action-packed, tightly scripted story.

However, the real treat on the disc is the lower profile episode, The Idiot's Lantern. Set at the time of Elizabeth II's coronation, the Doctor and Rose find a shop offering strangely low cost television sets, and people worried by rumours of strange goings in. Buoyed by a guest appearance by Maureen Lipman, this is yet another highpoint for an increasingly confident series, by turns clever, sinister and intriguing.

In short, the best disc yet of episodes from the second new series of Doctor Who. And there's the promise of even better around the corner...--Simon Brew --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

That's the only word I can think of to describe the 3 episodes on this Dr Who DVD (Series 2 vol 2). First up, TOOTH & CLAW. Wow!! The Doctor faces off against a cool looking werewolf and meets Queen Victoria. I hope that Tennant's Doctor gets to meet Queen Victoria again given her departing warning. SCHOOL REUNION ... gotta admit I watched this one first as I couldn't wait to see Lis Sladen's Sarah Jane again. Tennant & Sladen were great together making it disapponting she didn't leave with them. Of course I have to mention the humourous bits between Rose and Sarah. (I suspect that was genuine laughter between them.) Oh, I loved the bit where Mickey realises he's 'the tin dog'. Finally, THE GIRL IN THE FIEPLACE. Coming from Steven Moffat, I noticed the bit about the Doctor dancing following up from his WWII story last year. The theme of the loneliness of the Doctor continues to be played very well here and I hope this continues throughout the rest of the season. All said, three terrific episodes that not only prove Tennant and Piper are a great TARDIS team, but that DOCTOR WHO is still the best show on TV ... EVER! Roll on Volume 3!!

Having been an avid fan of Doctor Who in the era of Tom Baker I was a little sceptical about a "new Doctor Who". I must say I shouldn't have worried wow this is great.

It has the feel of the original series without the Blue Peter type props. It has grown up and gone into the electronical age - sonic screwdrivers and all. If you have any hesitation in buying this as an old Doctor Who fan don't its new, original, fresh and well done Doctor - the only strange thing being that Doctor Who is actually good looking!!

The last series continually took me by surprise! I sat down expecting to lightly pass 45 minutes and became well engrossed, drawn in, amused and often moved. The new series and the new Doctor built brilliantly on the strength of series one, at the same time bringing a freshness and vitality to the show. These episodes are among the best so far, and show the imagination and inventiveness of the writers off well. Tenant is brilliant as the Doctor, compassionate to the oppressed, ruthless to the guilty, and always switiching effortlessly between playing it for laughs and serious drama. Piper shows herself to be far more than just a good actress too; her range is impressive, complimenting Tenants Doctor perfectly. All of the episodes on this disc are strong, my personal favourite being "The Girl in the Fireplace," when the doctor falls for Madame De Pompador in a plot that twists space and time while having some genuinely jumpy moments- check out the tick-tock robots face masks! "Tooth and Claw" is also fantastic, scary and atmospheric, with a memorably haunting performance from the boy who eventually becomes the beast. "School Reunion" sees the return of Sarah Jane Smith and the iconic K-9, and is lighter than the other two. That said it has it's brilliant moments of emotion as Rose finds she's not the only woman the Doctor has ever shared his adventures with. Tenants playimg of the "You'll age and I won't" scene is moving, and gives us insight his character.

`The Runaway Bride' is one of the most memorable, exciting and funny episodes of `Doctor Who' from the new series. The second proper Doctor Who Christmas special, it features Catherine Tate as Donna Noble, the return of the killer Robot Santas, has got a car chase and features Sarah Parish as the rather monstrous and deadly Empress of the Rachnoss (a gigantic spider).

Transmitted on the 25th December 2006, this story follows the tragic end of 'Doomsday' where the Doctor has just lost Rose Tyler to a parallel universe following the Dalek/Cybermen battle at Canary Wharf. With little time to grieve his loss, the Doctor suddenly finds a bride standing in the console room appearing out of nowhere. The Doctor wonders how she got there and the bride - Donna Noble - is convinced the Doctor's an idiot and has kidnapped her. Determined to get rid of her, the Doctor tries to get Donna back to her church in Chiswick in time for the wedding. But on the way, they find themselves delayed and cornered off by Robot Santas (last appeared in 'The Christmas Invasion') who want to capture Donna and it all leads to a car chase with the Doctor in the TARDIS chasing Donna with a Robot Santa in a taxi.

I really like Catherine Tate as Donna Noble in this story. Catherine is well known for her comedy sketch show `The Catherine Tate Show', and to have her appear as a Christmas companion in a Doctor Who special is a real treat.
