"Doctor, who? The best!",
This review is from: Doctor Who: Series 1 - Volume 3 [DVD]  (DVD)
What is this like? Amazing, is all I can say. Doctor Who has suddenly plundged itself into a number of catogories that add up the excellence of it. Especially this one. The first episode is my least favourite of the lot. It's fantastically gripping and suspencful, but not as enjoyable as the others. They end up on Satalite 5 in the year 200,000 and the psychological events in this episode all add up to something hidden up on level 500. A strange, but cleverly made "thing" that is controling the human race. The Doctor, Rose and their unofficial accomplis from the Dalek episode get to the bottom of the mystery why the people who are elected to remain on level 500 never return. Father's Day. My favourite episode. This one has so much to it. Beautifully acted and heart-breakingly gripping and emotional. Rose and the Doctor go back to 1987 to see Rose's father when he got hit by a joyrider. Time is damaged by Rose actually saving her Dad. The Reapers appear from a different dimension and start to kill everyone. This is happening because time is badly damaged. A great episode.
The Empty Child. Very scary. I had to watch this with my face in my hands, peering through my fingers. The doctor and Rose go back to the Second World War. A bomb has hit London and children are strangly cursed, with exactly the same scars on their hands. Their favourite is "mummy" as you esstablish during it. The cursed must not enter any houses or touch anyone otherwise... Get it and find out. Brilliant DVD! Definitly a "must buy". The last episode is a happy-ending episode. AMAZING. ASTOUNDING. The acting is superb. The script is exhilaratingly written and sums up the whole of Doctor Who...
