Hot on the heels of the acclaimed third series, Doctor Who returns for a fantastic fourth series with a familiar face alongside the Doctor.
Award-winning comedienne Catherine Tate returns as the Doctor's new companion, revisiting her role as Donna Noble who featured in the 2006 Christmas special The Runaway Bride. Martha Jones - who left the Doctor at the end of Series Three to break the unrequited circle of love she felt for him - will also return. The Sontarans and Ood are set to reappear.
Kicking off with a jam-packed Christmas special and ending with a blockbuster extended closing instalment, Doctor Who?s fourth series since it was revived is a breathless, exciting one, that also boasts some exceptional episodes.
You get fourteen episodes for your money here, and the ones in particular to watch out for are the outstanding Silence In The Library/Forest Of The Dead double header, the almost single-location creepfest that is Midnight, and the trio of Turn Left, The Stolen Earth and Journey?s End that round off the series. In the midst of those is also one of the very best cliffhangers that Doctor Who has ever employed in its long and glorious history.
This is also the series of Doctor Who that introduces Catherine Tate as full-time companion Donna Noble, working alongside David Tennant?s Doctor across time and space. And it?s--against initial expectations--arguably the best combination since the show returned. Here, there?s no hint of romance between the pair, as they instead knuckle down to business, occasionally helped by the likes of Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen) and Jack Harkness (John Barrowman).
Let?s not forget too the collection of monsters we meet this time round. The daleks and Davros are the main attractions in Doctor Who Series 4, while the return of the Sontarans proves to be a bit of a disappointment. But, after viewing the series, chances are you?ll be counting shadows around you, and wary of getting on the wrong side of the Ood.
As with most series of Doctor Who, there are one or two bumpy episodes and missteps, but this is still unmatched at what it does, and finds the show in even more confident form than last time round. That, along with the immense rewatch value, is what makes this terrific piece of family entertainment such a compelling buy. --Simon Brew

It was refreshing. Another astonishing and wonderful season... With a really lovely Big Bang finale that serves perfectly as a goodbye to a quite nice Doctor-Who producing era...
One of the best things in the season is the ark... So well conducted... So good at insinuating without clearly stating... So good classic foes visitations (Sontarans, Daleks, Davros)... And very good episodes such as Turn Left or or The Unicorn and the Wasp. And specially intriguing monsters as the Vashta Nerada or intriguing characters such as River Song... Simply one more wonderful season of our beloved Doctor (in his tenth version portrayed by David Tennant).
The Box Set is what one would expect. Nice case-packaging. All the episodes plus the Christmas Special opening... And an extra DVD with the Doctor Who Confidential for those that want to go further than the series and know the behind-the-scenes.
I loved it... My partner loved it (she is only starting to be a Whosie)... And I know that some day our children will love it!!
Greetings from Spain!
Who would have guessed that Catherine Tate was such an accomplished dramatic actress? She certainly rounds out and humanises the character of Donna Noble, who was rather 'annoying' and shrill in the Runaway Bride Christmas special.
Quite possibly the best Doctor/companion pairing of this new, re-vamped series of the time-lord's exploits. So sad it had to end after one season!
