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

Product Description

Three more episodes of the BBC's relaunched version of the sci-fi classic, starring David Tennant as the legendary Time Lord, and Billlie Piper as his human sidekick Rose. In 'Rise of the Cybermen (Part 1)', the TARDIS is drawn into a parallel version of Earth, where Rose's father Pete (Shaun Dingwall) is still alive. But with a population obsessed with the Cyberindustries technology of the sinister John Lumic (Roger Lloyd-Pack), it isn't long before the Doctor and Rose, along with Mickey (Noel Clarke), stumble across a deadly plan to convert the human race into the dreaded, soulless Cybermen. In 'The Age of Steel (Part 2)', the team split up to bring down the Cyberman menace, with Mickey taking the place of his murdered parallel world counterpart Rickey. Can the Doctor foil Lumic's deadly plans before the whole of London has been enslaved? In 'The Idiot's Lantern', the Doctor and Rose arrive in the year of the Queen's coronation, 1953. But while the population settles down to watch on their new-fangled televisions, an alien evil is stakling the streets. Does it have something to do with with the 'idiot box' in the corner?

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow what a series 2 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
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!!

Format:DVD
`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. Here she plays someone who doesn't want to be in the TARDIS and just wants to get married (rather like Tegan who wanted to be an air hostess and eventually travelled with Peter Davison).

5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic from Doctor Who 7 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
it is a rare thing that a series can bring together a whole family to enjoy a good piece of quality BBC drama/Sci fi. This is perfection and the scary bits are never too much for the kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!! 23 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
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!!

Format:DVD
This DVD contains three episodes from the new second series of the BBC's revived hit 'Doctor Who'. The disc contains no extra features, but there will be a 6-disc boxset released in November that will contain a mass of bonus material. David Tennant continues to provide a thoroughly enjoyable and zany interpretation of the Tenth Doctor, and Billie Piper is still fabulous as his companion, Rose Tyler. Tennant's two debut episode 'The Christmas Invasion' and 'New Earth' were both excellent, and I was apprehensive that the standard may not be maintained throughout the whole series. Luckily however, there is a wealth of things to enjoy in this episodes, and this DVD is definitely worth purchasing. The DVD also contains subtitles.

The three episodes on the disc are:

Tooth and Claw

Writer: Russell T Davies

Director: Euros Lynn

Originally broadcast: 22/4/06

After the somewhat camp, frenzied and energetic series opener 'New Earth', the second episode of the series expounds a completely different tone and style. The Doctor and Rose encounter Queen Victoria and a genuinely frightening warewolf (which is why this episode has been given a 12 certificate). There are lots of great moments throughout, such as the recurring 'We are not amused' joke, the exciting and cryptic references to Torchwood (the impending spin-off series) and an army of sinister warrior monks. The special effects/CGI are visually stunning and impressive, and the atmosphere of this episode is seeped in darkness and tension. Brilliant.
