From Amazon.co.uk

The second series of the new Doctor Who disappears with a bang, thanks to an excellent two-parter that throws in the Doctors' old foes with the departure of companion Rose Tyler.

Yet this final disc of the series two collection actually kicks off with "Fear Her", a decent enough way to spend three quarters of an hour, but far from the series highlight, and not the reason most people will buy this disc. It's a breezy tale of a little girl whose disturbing drawings come to life, a premise admittedly with some promise. The execution though is fairly middle of the road, and save for some fun moments along the way, it's fairly forgettable, if entertaining, stuff.

The closing two parter though is terrific. It kicks of with "Army Of Ghosts", which finds the residents of Earth being visited by strange ghostly shapes, believed to be assorted relatives who have long since died. Predictably, that's not the case, and much to the shock of Torchwood, an Earth-based organisation investigating alien technology, the world promptly finds itself pretty much invaded. And there's still room for things to get worse in "Doomsday", with more than one major villain from the Doctor's past arriving on Earth, prompting a major battle, the return of faces from earlier in the series and a farewell to Rose Tyler.

It all wraps up another hugely successful series of Doctor Who, and once again does it with a considerably strong pair of final episodes. We've said it before and we'll say it again--we can't wait to see how they'll top it next time around… --Simon Brew

Product Description

David Tennant steps into the role of the Doctor for the second series of Doctor Who. Following the phenomenal success of the first series that took British television by storm in 2005, the second instalment is full of new thrills, new laughs, new heartbreak and some terrifying new monsters. The Doctor and Rose meet Queen Victoria, an evil race of Cat Women and the dreaded Cybermen.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible finale 14 Oct 2006
... best sums up a fantastic 2nd season of new DR WHO. Children go missing and the Doctor and Rose do a bit of Mulder & Scully in FEAR HER which kicks off this final DVD. Then our intrepd travels are back to the Powell Estates and the Torchwood Institute to mix things up with some "spirits" in ARMY OF GHOSTS. Of course, all isn't what it seems and before too long its trouble times two as the Doctor squares off against both Cybermen AND Daleks. The Doctor pulls out everything, but in the end he loses Rose in DOOMSDAY. I have to mention here what an terrific pair David and Billie have been throughout the season. Her farewell was one of the most moving "companion" exits ever, next to Lis Sladen saying goodbye to Tom Baker's Doctor. Can't wait to see next year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great end to a brilliant programme! 25 Aug 2006
By vicky
Volume 5 concludes the excellent TV Show (Doctor Who)! Such a shame to see Rose go as we only just got used to the new doctor I believe the best so far. David Tennant adds the 'wacky' side to Doctor Who making him brilliant and excellent for the part. He works well with Billie Piper and acts it out as if he as Doctor Who has known the her for years and really has only been acting the part since the second Series. He adds the comedy to the show David Tennant fits the part brilliantly. I personally didnt like series 1 because of who played Doctor Who but after seeing School Reunion and The Girl In The Fire Place I could not stop watching the rest of the Series.

Fear Her - Is a simple story set in 2012 the Year in which the UK holds the Olympics. Its set in London on one street which has had children being missing. Its a 'who done it' mystery in which Rose is left to solve the problem of sending the alien possessing a child haunted by her dad in her night mares back home. Its not the best of Doctor Who but it is a satisfactory story and after Episode 10 Love and Monsters well anything can beat that episode. Its still a simple and easy watch story and another save from The Doctor.

Army Of Ghosts - Is the start of a second part episode in which the Doctor and Rose travel back to Earth to find that things arent exactly the same as how they left it. Jackie (Rose's Mum) accidently stays in the Tardis when the Doctor and Rose go and investigate what is bringing all these Ghosts to Earth. And find it is Torchwood. The Institute in a earlier episode created my Queen Victoria to stop the Doctor from suposedly doing any more damage to Earth. The Institute designed to research Alien Techonolgy. Its a great episode you cant watch this without seeing Doomsday and the same the other way around.

This is the fifth volume of series 2 of `Doctor Who' starring David Tennant and Billie Piper. It contains two stories - a single-episode story and a two parter. From the look of the front cover, you can see the Daleks and Cybermen have returned as they appear in the final story of the season, and it's a big swansong for one of the Doctor's well-loved companions.

`FEAR HER'

This is an okay sort of story, written by Matthew Graham (his first contribution to the series) and directed by Euros Lyn.

It's set in 2012 during the London Olympics where Rose and the Doctor discover children disappearing in a suburban area and they investigate what has been going on. It's pretty creepy involving a little girl named Chloe Webber who abducts people by doing children's drawings of them, capturing their likeness and trapping them inside the paper. It's an unusual story but is well executed with its sunny context and familiar setting. It's a great way to start off this DVD collection.

To think that the London Olympics 2012 has only just gone about two years ago. All I can say is, I don't remember people vanishing in a big stadium and I certainly don't remember the Doctor carrying the Olympic torch. Must have missed that.

`ARMY OF GHOSTS'/'DOOMSDAY'

This for me is one of the best series finales and one of my favourite episodes in `Doctor Who'. It contains two of my favourite monsters from the series - the Daleks and the Cybermen - in their biggest battle yet. It also features a very moving and touching send-off for one of the most well-loved companions of the Doctor. For this is the story where Rose Tyler dies...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Finale to a Brilliant Series!! 14 Aug 2007
These are great episodes to end the series.
The First one "Fear Her" is okay but not as good as the others. It is about a girl who gets posessed by a creature called the "Isolus". Whenever she draws something it disappears from reality and ends up in the drawing. It is a decent enough story but a very weak plot.(7/10)
The "Army of Ghosts" is a great episode. When the Doctor and Rose take a visit back to London they find out that at times in the day, there is a ghost shift when all these ghosts appear. It ends up that the ghosts are Cybermen and the Daleks are there aswell. Great episode!(10/10)
"Doomsday" is the best out of all of them by far. The Cybermen have taken control by upgrading everyone, while the Daleks are trying to open "The Genesis Ark", which in the end; we find out that it is a prison ship from the timelords, made to put Daleks in, then they take over. Then finally there is the great finale of the Doctor losing Rose! A very dramatic ending.(10/10)
I strongly recommend that you buy this. (Overall 10/10)!!!
