Doctor Who: The Runaway Bride, 2006 Christmas Spec&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ David Tennant

This is a superb festive special episode of Doctor Who, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate. This show, suitable for the whole family, just seems to go from strenght to strenght. It has a real sense of wit, energy and heart - and thanks to this fast, furious and frantic episode, there is no chance for the viewer to get bored. Series 3 begins at the weekend, and I can't wait. The Christmas Special stands alone as an individual episode of Doctor Who, so pre-order it now and catch up before the third series. It has everything a good family show should - a real pace, and is sure to keep everyone entertained.

The fourth installment of the second series of 'Doctor Who' is another superb DVD and contains three episodes that are all brilliant, exciting, moving and suspenful. David Tennant continues to shine as the Tenth Doctor, and he has great on-screen chemistry with Billie Piper. The scripts are well-written, the special effects stylish and impressive, the acting brilliant and full of conviction and the aliens hugely scary and inventive.

'The Impossible Planet' and 'The Satan Pit' are both wonderful episode; dark, scary, gripping and crammed with tension. There are some great moments as the Doctor is forced to question religion. 'Love & Monsters' is a love/hate kind of an episode, but… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gripping Read, 18 Jan 2006
Ben Elton's tenth novel proved to be gripping, exciting and thrilling and it contained enough suspense, mystery and action to keep me hooked throughout. Don't expect a work of literary genuis; but I have to applaud Elton for tackling The First World War and life in the trenches so well. He manages to bring the horrors and brutalty of the period wonderfully to life in print, and some parts of the book are very moving. Please read this book with an open mind, don't expect any comedy and enjoy!
