4.0 out of 5 stars Love and Monsters cost it 5 stars!, 19 July 2006
This review is from: Doctor Who - The New Series - Series 2 - Vol. 4 [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
I absoloutly loved the first 2 episodes on this DVD. "The Impossible Planet" and "The Satan Pit" made me want to crawl behind my setee and not come out until the end credits rolled (OK so I'm a wimp - I admit it!)

In these first two episodes, the Doc and Rose find themselves on a planet being sucked into a black whole. With the TARDIS vanished they can't get home and begin to comtemplate life with just the two of them. However, they soon forget about their woes when the seemingly innocent Ood start behaving odly and spouting the words of the Devil. But when a huge pit outside suddenly opens, it becomes clear that something is dreadfully wrong. The Satan Pit is my favourite episode, when believing the Doctor has fallen down the Pit and died Rose rallies on the rest of the troops and manages to get them all into a spaceship and on their way back to earth. However, the doctor is actually alive and well and facing his toughest challenge - Satan Himself. Satan challenges The Docs every belief, and after finally locating the TARDIS he is reunited with Rose but still can't bring himself to divulge the conversation between him and Satan.

Love and Monsters is probably the weakest episode of all the series and not just this DVD. The fact that the Doc and Rose are only in it for a matter of minutes really says a lot. Peter Kay however, is great. This episode is the only reason I gave this DVD four stars. I can honestly say I really enjoyed the series but Love and Monsters & Fear Her really let me down. But David Tennant makes a great Doc and has amazing chemistry with Billy Piper as Rose. A great DVD but a not-so-great third episode. Still, you can judge for yourself.
