Product Description

Product Description

Episodes 4-7 from the third series of the BBC's relaunched version of the sci-fi classic, starring David Tennant as the legendary Time Lord. From the moment the Doctor walks into the life of medical student Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) he changes it forever. In Elizabethan London, they meet William Shakespeare (Dean Lennox Kelly) at the Globe Theatre, while back in present-day London 76-year-old Professor Lazarus (Mark Gatiss) recaptures his youth with consequences that threaten Martha's entire family. Meanwhile, the Doctor's sworn enemies, the Daleks, who have been hiding in 1930s New York, return with a terrifying plan for humanity... Episodes are: 'Daleks in Manhattan', 'Evolution of the Daleks', 'The Lazarus Experiment' and '42'.

From Amazon.co.uk

The latest DVD release from the third season of the revived Doctor Who is one many fans will have been eagerly awaiting, due in no small part to the return of the iconic Daleks.

A pity, then, that of the four episodes on this DVD, it’s the Dalek double-header that’s the weakest. So let’s deal with those two episodes first. "Daleks In Manhattan" and "Evolution Of The Daleks" are set in 1930s New York, where the Daleks have hatched their most daring plan to date: to use the biology of a human to evolve their own, resulting in a hybrid human/Dalek creature.

Yet in spite of some neat moments across the two episodes, the double-header never really clicks, and the hybrid creation utterly fails to convince. It leaves a few good lines, some neat action sequences and the sheer status of the Daleks to drag the episodes through.

Things perk up though with the other two episodes on this Doctor Who DVD. "The Lazarus Experiment" is a fun romp, with The League Of Gentlemen’s Mark Gatiss experimenting, with predictably chaotic results, in age reversal. What marks this episode out though is the intriguing building of the story that’s set to pay off later in the series.

Finally, the best episode on the disc, 42. While derivative, it’s pacey, funny and has a real-time feel to the action that works extraordinarily well. Some smashing direction too, not least when the episode goes silent as the Doctor mouths "I’ll save you" to a seemingly doomed Martha.

In all then, a mixed bag of Doctor Who, but still a terrific value DVD given the four episodes it contains. Even if the best of series three is yet to come... --Simon Brew

Series Three of DOCTOR WHO is where The Act Finally Gets Together. There are no elements that lack in comparison to others. It's a perfectly balanced production that delivers on every technical and emotional level.

The varied nature of the stories still means there's going to be some episodes better than others, but the beauty of it all is that the standard is so impeccably high. It's fair to say we have never had it so good.

DALEKS IN MANHATTAN and EVOLUTION OF THE DALEKS, a two-parter set in Depression-era New York, is probably the least effective story of the season. However, I will immediately qualify this by saying that the visuals are generally stunning and the scope is impressive, but the flaw remains in the realisation of DALEK/HUMAN SEC. It slightly diminishes the whole by not being 100% convincing and that's a terrible shame. Credit must go to Director JAMES STRONG, however, who is mostly on the money (note: I initially disliked the marching human/hybrid army dissolves, then saw in it a lovely homage to the Flash Gordons'/Buck Rogers' Republic serials of the time, a very nice touch) - but for my money, and for sheer visual and visceral impact, he'll need to sit on another Zarbi anthill before he tops THE SATAN PIT.

What an absolute delight THE LAZARUS EXPERIMENT is. Elements of Frankenstein, Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde, The Fly, Quatermass and The Pit - all rolled into one big, skeletal mess of a monster. MARK GATISS makes the most of his part as the age-reversal experiment gone wrong and draws out an effectively mean 'n moody performance from his best mate DAVID TENNANT. FREEMA AYGEMAN likewise continues to impress with her measured performance, wholly without the clinginess that made late-era BILLIE PIPER so irritating.

The revived Doctor who has been somewhat of a mixed bag since it began 2 yrs ago,sometimes brilliant episodes would be followed by horrid ones. This collection from season 3 is ok but no more than that. The dalek 2 parter is pretty lame,theres barely enough material here for 1 episode let alone 2,theres virtually no action and a load of actors doing fake american accents running around!!..writr helen raynor will be contributing another 2 part story for season 4,lets hope it better than this!

The Lazurus experiment is although stoeywise pretty flimsy it's quite an enjoyable episode and prob the best ep on this disc

42 is a story by chris chibnell..the main writer on torchwood. This is another mediocre story..all too reminiscent of last yrs impossible planet 2 parter..why do another take on a similar theme this soon?? doesnt make sense..some nice fx in this at the end but again it's not that great.

Fortunatley the next volume is excellent with the family of blood 2 parter and the amazing blink...this is how it should be done..avoid this volume and get the next one.

There are some very good episodes on this dvd and I really enjoyed them, although none of them are brilliant. In my opinion this dvd is better than the on before it.

Daleks In Manhatten/Evolution Of The Daleks= This is a usual Dalek episode with a twist because there is a Dalek Human. This double episode is very good and entertaining but the problem is ( as other reviewers have pointed out ) that the Daleks are in so many episodes that they become very over-used. This episode is set in America and the Daleks have a plan that has to do with the building of The Empire State Building ( 7/10 ).

The Lazarus Experiment= This episode is about the Doctor taking Martha back home, but a man is doing an experiment to make himself younger and the experiment fails and he occasionaly turns into a mutated monster. I didn't really enjoy this episode much but I still think it is ok ( 5/10 ).

42= This episode is about people in a spaceship hurtling towards the sun and some of the people aboard the ship are turning evil and burning people to death. This episode is exciting and intriguing and it is great to watch. I don't know why people think it is like The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit, because the plot is nothing like that except that they are in a spaceship ( 7/10 ).

There are some episodes definitely worth watching on this dvd but it is not the best in the series.

At first after i saw Dalek Sec teleport away as the Genisis arc was sucked into the void at the end of Doomsday, i thought two things, one: a story like Doomsday would never come again, Daleks and Cybermen clash together and Dalek Sec was brilliant and when the much loved Rose said farewell to the Doctor. And two: I would have to wait untill the end of series 3 untill i could see Sec again.

I was almost proved wrong on both accounts.

I still remember that feeling when the lift opens and there is a Dalek. This is one of the best Dalek stories ever. The Evolution of Sec is brilliant and the detail of new york is exellent and the music when Dalek Sec comes out of his armour as the new Dalek/Human.

Never the less, there was one feature i didnt like and that was the new form of Dalek Sec. He looked very impressive but the voice was a little irritating when he says things like: "Establish..........visual..........contact" and it was in a New york accent which i thought could have sounded more menacing and still have a grating metalic tone to it. And, there is still the climax of series 3 when hopefully we will meet Caan again as the last Dalek.

However, i still think Doomsday was the best story. When the Daleks rose from the Sphere at the end of Army of Ghosts crying in their grating metalic tones "LIFE-FORM-DE-TEC-TED, EXTERMINATE, EXTERMINATE EX-TER-MIN-ATE!!" i felt so happy and that feeling didnt return in Daleks in Manhattan.

As for the other two episodes, The Lazerus experiment was good, i like the meet the parents bit when Mrs Jones meets the Doctor, but it felt a little like the type of Story that you often get on Doctor Who that is simpily there to fill a gap.
