Product Description

Episodes 4-7 from the third series of the BBC's relaunched version of the sci-fi classic, starring David Tennant as the legendary Time Lord. From the moment the Doctor walks into the life of medical student Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) he changes it forever. In Elizabethan London, they meet William Shakespeare (Dean Lennox Kelly) at the Globe Theatre, while back in present-day London 76-year-old Professor Lazarus (Mark Gatiss) recaptures his youth with consequences that threaten Martha's entire family. Meanwhile, the Doctor's sworn enemies, the Daleks, who have been hiding in 1930s New York, return with a terrifying plan for humanity... Episodes are: 'Daleks in Manhattan', 'Evolution of the Daleks', 'The Lazarus Experiment' and '42'.

From Amazon.co.uk

The latest DVD release from the third season of the revived Doctor Who is one many fans will have been eagerly awaiting, due in no small part to the return of the iconic Daleks.

A pity, then, that of the four episodes on this DVD, it’s the Dalek double-header that’s the weakest. So let’s deal with those two episodes first. "Daleks In Manhattan" and "Evolution Of The Daleks" are set in 1930s New York, where the Daleks have hatched their most daring plan to date: to use the biology of a human to evolve their own, resulting in a hybrid human/Dalek creature.

Yet in spite of some neat moments across the two episodes, the double-header never really clicks, and the hybrid creation utterly fails to convince. It leaves a few good lines, some neat action sequences and the sheer status of the Daleks to drag the episodes through.

Things perk up though with the other two episodes on this Doctor Who DVD. "The Lazarus Experiment" is a fun romp, with The League Of Gentlemen’s Mark Gatiss experimenting, with predictably chaotic results, in age reversal. What marks this episode out though is the intriguing building of the story that’s set to pay off later in the series.

Finally, the best episode on the disc, 42. While derivative, it’s pacey, funny and has a real-time feel to the action that works extraordinarily well. Some smashing direction too, not least when the episode goes silent as the Doctor mouths "I’ll save you" to a seemingly doomed Martha.

In all then, a mixed bag of Doctor Who, but still a terrific value DVD given the four episodes it contains. Even if the best of series three is yet to come... --Simon Brew

There are some very good episodes on this dvd and I really enjoyed them, although none of them are brilliant. In my opinion this dvd is better than the on before it.

Daleks In Manhatten/Evolution Of The Daleks= This is a usual Dalek episode with a twist because there is a Dalek Human. This double episode is very good and entertaining but the problem is ( as other reviewers have pointed out ) that the Daleks are in so many episodes that they become very over-used. This episode is set in America and the Daleks have a plan that has to do with the building of The Empire State Building ( 7/10 ).

The Lazarus Experiment= This episode is about the Doctor taking Martha back home, but a man is doing an experiment to make himself younger and the experiment fails and he occasionaly turns into a mutated monster. I didn't really enjoy this episode much but I still think it is ok ( 5/10 ).

42= This episode is about people in a spaceship hurtling towards the sun and some of the people aboard the ship are turning evil and burning people to death. This episode is exciting and intriguing and it is great to watch. I don't know why people think it is like The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit, because the plot is nothing like that except that they are in a spaceship ( 7/10 ).

There are some episodes definitely worth watching on this dvd but it is not the best in the series.

This is the second volume of series 3 of `Doctor Who', starring David Tennant as the Doctor and Freema Agyeman as Martha Jones. It contains one juicy two-part Dalek story set in Manhattan, New York during the 1930s as well as two more bonus adventures with a mad scientist and a crashing spaceship into a sun. It's an exciting collection of four episodes and is worthy for its entertainment. I'm sure you'll enjoy what's on here to compliment your `Doctor Who' experience.

`DALEKS IN MANHATTAN'/'EVOLUTION OF THE DALEKS'

When I heard the Daleks were returning to series 3 of `Doctor Who' back in 2007, I was very pleased. I was also very pleased that it would be an adventure set in the 1930s in New York, since that's an era of Earth history I can appreciate and feel comfortable with. Unfortunately I was unable to watch these two episodes on their initial transmission on telly. But my dear nana who was alive back then agreed to watch the episodes for me and tell me what she made of them. She said she enjoyed the episodes with the Daleks, though avoided to tell me anything that went on since I knew that would spoil the surprise.

I eventually got to watch these episodes on DVD and found myself enjoying what was going on in the story. The Daleks are at their most cunning in this story and the New York setting was spectacular. The writing is well-handled by Helen Raynor who was Doctor Who's script editor from the start of the revived series. Some of this story was filmed in New York itself to get the location slates for the story on some of the landmarks, making it look authentic and amazing.

The story being set in New York during 1930 was an easy period of me to get into. For one thing, I knew was 1930 New York was all about.

Series Three of DOCTOR WHO is where The Act Finally Gets Together. There are no elements that lack in comparison to others. It's a perfectly balanced production that delivers on every technical and emotional level.

The varied nature of the stories still means there's going to be some episodes better than others, but the beauty of it all is that the standard is so impeccably high. It's fair to say we have never had it so good.

DALEKS IN MANHATTAN and EVOLUTION OF THE DALEKS, a two-parter set in Depression-era New York, is probably the least effective story of the season. However, I will immediately qualify this by saying that the visuals are generally stunning and the scope is impressive, but the flaw remains in the realisation of DALEK/HUMAN SEC. It slightly diminishes the whole by not being 100% convincing and that's a terrible shame. Credit must go to Director JAMES STRONG, however, who is mostly on the money (note: I initially disliked the marching human/hybrid army dissolves, then saw in it a lovely homage to the Flash Gordons'/Buck Rogers' Republic serials of the time, a very nice touch) - but for my money, and for sheer visual and visceral impact, he'll need to sit on another Zarbi anthill before he tops THE SATAN PIT.

What an absolute delight THE LAZARUS EXPERIMENT is. Elements of Frankenstein, Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde, The Fly, Quatermass and The Pit - all rolled into one big, skeletal mess of a monster. MARK GATISS makes the most of his part as the age-reversal experiment gone wrong and draws out an effectively mean 'n moody performance from his best mate DAVID TENNANT. FREEMA AYGEMAN likewise continues to impress with her measured performance, wholly without the clinginess that made late-era BILLIE PIPER so irritating.

Doctor Who history has just been written! This is the show that everyone will be talking about years from now. It's the kind of show you would want to put on your Big Screen Television and invite friends over for a party. It would be a party they would never forget!

There are certain elements to Doctor Who that has captured the minds and imaginations of millions of viewers. As a 5 year old child watching Doctor Who and seeing Daleks for the first time, and now more than 40 years later, here is something new, something believable yet unbelievable, something to stir the imagination and make you think. It's not just about the Daleks, it is also about social injustice, an example of how big corporations can control your life, and at the same time none of us knows who is really in control.

Doctor Who has stretched our imagination in the past, but who would have thought it possible that they could have gone this far, and made it work! Such an excellent story line, production values, special effects, and quality performances from the actors. Doctor Who has now taken us way beyond anything imaginable. Freema Agyeman is exceptionally good as a traveling companion. She might also make Doctor Who history as being the best companion ever, although Elizabeth Sladen is still my favorite.

Bonus 1) "The Lazarus Experiment" It is quite good!
Bonus 2) "42" It is also very good!

This DVD is filled with great stuff! If you were to buy just one Doctor Who DVD, this would be the one!
