5.0 out of 5 stars Doctor Who? HEY Doctor Who!, 20 July 2008
This review is from: Doctor Who - The Complete BBC Series 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
I loved this series apart from one episode... Love and Monsters left me feeling flat as a pancake! I was really looking forward to my forty minutes of David Tennant's quirkyness, and all I got was Peter Kay gobbling people up!!!!! I found it a rather strange episode.

I loved the two episodes set in the Parallel universe where Rose's father and mother were together but unhappy without any child. They were all the more fantastic by Roger Lloyd Pack's amazing acting ability in that episode. It proved he could play more than just Trigger in Only Fools... and Owen in Vicar of Dibley. Also, for a Potter fan like me, I was THRILLED, that shortly after seeing Goblet of Fire at the Cinema, I saw them together on screen again this time on the opposite sides of the fence: (Roger played Barty Crouch Sr, a Wizard dedicated to putting evil Wizards and Witches, called Death Eaters in the Wizard prison Azkaban, David Tennant played his son, Barty Crouch Jr, one of the evil Wizards he sent down.) So, yeah, for me it was the icing on the proverbial cake.

I also loved the Girl in the Fireplace mainly because of the horse crashing through the mirror before the final showdown, and the greatest Who lines of all time:

Rose: You're not having that horse in the Tardis.

Doctor: Why not I let you keep Mickey!

That episode should have been dedicated to Adam and the Ants it was so Prince Charming!

I actually found Fear Her quite scary, I did almost hide behind the cushion, in fact in The Wire episode I DID hide behind the cushion!

Great series, great show, great Doctor and great assistant... just didn't like Peter Kay!
