One of the best programs on BBC,
This review is from: Doctor Who : Complete BBC Series 4  [DVD] (DVD)
Partners in Crime - 7/10
In this epsidoe we see Donna and the Doctor both investigate a new pill to help lose weight. A nice easy episode to re-introduce the characters and create aliens fit for the cuddly-toy buisness.
Fires of Pompeii - 7.5/10
The Doctor takes Donna to Pompeii only to find it is the day before Mount Vesuvias erupts. I had watch this twice to really enjoy but the characters and the plot were both good.
Planet of the Ood - 7/10
On her first alien planet, Donna meets the Ood and discovers some secrets about humans in the future. This epsidoe supriesed me because the Ood were not really the bad guys. I felt that this episode was not what Doctor Who is normally about. It wasnt fun, it wasnt bouncy. Not the best Doctor Who episode ver.
The Sontaran Strategem - 8/10
This episdoe sees the return of Martha Jones and the Sontarans. A series of deaths are linked to the ATMOS system and UNIT must figure out how. i liked this episode because i thought the Sontarans were played excellently and it was nice seeing UNIT being brought back.
The Poison Sky - 7.5/10
UNIt and the Sontarans are going to war and the Doctor must clear the skies of the poisonus gases. The follow on from The Sontaran Strategem, not quiet as good but still entertaning to watch.
The Doctor's Daughter - 8/10
The Doctor, Donna and Martha arrive on the planet Messaline only to find that the Doctor has a daughter. I liked this episode because it had a suprising twist. Having Marths in this epsidoe was not clever because she was seperated from the Doctor most of the time.
The Unicorn and the Wasp - 10/10
In 1926, Agatha Christie disapeared for ten days. The Doctor and Donna arrive the day before and have to catch the murderer at the estate. I loved this epsidoe for two reasons. I am a big Agatha Christie Fan and also it was so clever. the characters were great and it was such a fun, light episode.
Silence in the Library - 10/10
The Doctor and Donna find themeselves in the biggest libray in the universe, but it is completely desrted. Accept for the shadows. This was another brilliant epsidoe made better with the inrtoduction of Professor River Song (Alex KIngston) who somehow knows the Doctor in the future. It is good how somehow it is all tied in with one little girl and it has a greta cliffhanger.
Forest of the Dead - 9/10
The second in the two parter. Donna is trapped in a fake world whilst the Doctor must escape the shadows and discover the secret of Cal. You see a different side to Donna in this episode as her life is flying by and her world is collapsing. Very scary when Miss Evengilista makes a suprise return.
Midnight - 9/10
Taking a tour across a diamond planet called Midnight, the Doctor must save himself when a tapping on the walls begins. This episode had Donna in for only two scenes at the beginning and end, so you get to see how the Doctor copes by being with himself. And with no real alien, this epsiode keeps you thinking.
Turn Left (Doctorlite episode) - 10/10
What would happen if Donna met the Doctor? In this episode Donna lives a life where she has never met him and all sorts of things start go wrong. But who is the blonde girl helping Donna through out? A very clever and different kind of episode. Definatley one for older viewers as there was not a proper alien.
The Stolen Earth - 9.5/10
When the Doctor and Donna return to find the Earth missing, they must brave the Shadow Proclomation to save them. This episode was very good because it included so many thing that have been mentioned over the past four years. Also, everyone the Doctor has ever known return to help fight the Daleks and a very scary Davros!
Journeys End - 9.5/10
With Davros preparing the Atom Bomb things look quite bad, but only the Doctors Secret Army can save the day. This episode was made twenty minutes longer than normal to fit everything in. I felt the main part of it was over quite quickly. And i wonder who will be joning Torchwood next year?
Overall a brilliant series and my favourite of the New Who so far. So great epsidoe and big guest appearences (Bernard Cribbins, Alex Kingston) with some excellent story lines. Superb!
