4.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype but enjoy it, 11 Sep 2006
This review is from: Doctor Who: Complete BBC Series 2 - Limited Edition 'Cyberman Head' Box Set with Lenticular Postcard (Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [2005] [DVD] (DVD)
Series two was far prom perfect, but was hugely enjoyable. If DT's performance could be quietened down a little without losing his energy he'd be a top three Dr, for me. I was pleased to see grinning Billie go. Great ending for her, but a lousy ep 13, after such a wonderful build up to the end of part in ep 12. The Cybermen were wasted - trashed by the Daleks without much of a battle. They were always going to win, but why diminish your second greatest enemy having taken time to build them up in eps 5 and 6. School Reunion was wonderful, bar the Krillitanes. They were poorly realised, while Tooth and Claw shows that CGI creatures CAN work well. Tooth and Claw was the best RTD script yet. Fear Her wasn't pushed far enough, Love and Monsters was fun without being great DW. The Satan Pit was wonderful while Impossible Planet didn't quite manage to finish a great build up. Idiot's Lantern didn't explain what was going on, but what was going on was an enjoyuable romp. New Earth was a solid story that didn't really push the envelope too far. Girl In The Fireplace looked good but kind of wasted Mickey who'd just joined the crew. He had very little to do given he was the new kid on the block... or in the Tardis. A mixed bag of stories; some good, some poor, some average, but nearly all above average, and stylistically wonderful, with excellent performances throughout. It was better than series 1 for me, so roll on Series 3... and long may the programme continue, with or without RTD at the helm.
