5.0 out of 5 stars How great is "the girl in the fireplace", 8 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Doctor Who: Series 2 - Volume 2 [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
The only reason why i am giving this DVD 5 stars is because of the episodes "Tooth and Claw" and "The Girl in the Fireplace". Firstly, Tooth and claw is a brilliant episode(probably one of my favorite episodes this series). The werewolf looks so cool with the wee bits of white hair around its mouth and in general, just the way it moves. The story is quite basic and the strange idea of Kung Fu monks in Scotland makes it different from any other werewolf TV shows or films i've seen.

Episode 3(School reunion), however, is one of the worst Doctor who episodes i've seen(most likely the worst). The reapearance of Toms Bakers companion, Sarah Jane, was fine but K9's voice just annoys me. But that isn't the reson for not liking it. The Krillitanes(despite their good name) look like a silly copy of the horrifying reapers of last series, and the irritating kid-actors didn't help. I also just didn't like the story and the idea of it being set in a school made it seem like a "child friendly" sort of episode compared to some of the realy creepy, dark and mysterious episodes of last series.

The Girl in the Fireplace is what doctor who was made for. This episode had a superior story to any other episode and the creepy clockwork droids were perfect. In my opinion David Tennant acted much better in this episode than in the rest of the series without his annoying facial expressions and rants about how fantastic humans are. This is my favorite episode of the series so far and matches the brilliant Empty Child and The Doctor Dances(also written by Steven Moffat) of last series.

In general this is a pretty good DVD and contains 1 rubbish, 1 very good and 1 fantastic episode but still doesn't compare to the exellent effort All the writers, producers etc and especially Christopher Eccleston of whom i much prefer to David Tennant.
