All 14 episodes from the third series of the relaunched sci-fi adventure drama, starring David Tennant as the latest incarnation of the legendary Time Lord. In this series, the Doctor is joined by new companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) as he encounters old enemies including the Daleks and the Master (Derek Jacobi). The episodes are: 'The Runaway Bride', 'Smith and Jones', 'The Shakespeare Code', 'Gridlock', 'Daleks in Manhattan', 'Evolution of the Daleks', 'The Lazarus Experiment', '42', 'Human Nature', 'The Family of Blood', 'Blink', 'Utopia', 'The Sound of Drums' and 'Last of the Timelords'.
There were a few moments in the third season of the revived Doctor Who when you begin to wonder if the bubble has burst. A couple of tepid Dalek episodes, and a handful of forgettable stories, make you begin--perhaps for the first time since the shows revival--whether its already hits its peak.
But never underestimate the new Doctor Who. For the back run of series three is as good as anything thats gone before it, with ingenious plotting, the clever layering of elements it casually--nah, crucially--refers to later on, and some quite superb individual episodes. It not only restores any hint of lost faith, it sets the bar even higher.
Examples? The stunning single story Blink is extremely clever, genuinely scary and has immense rewatch value. While the equally strong double-header of Human Nature and The Family Of Blood is a two-parter in the traditional Doctor Who way, building up its story in a measured and really effectively creepy way.
Then theres the finale. Presenting the Doctor with one of his finest, most ingenious villains makes for quite brilliant television (albeit with a slightly underwhelming concluding episode), as exciting to long-time fans of Doctor Who as it is for the newcomers.
And that, ultimately, is the brilliance of Doctor Who. It staggers so many levels of viewer enthusiasm, appeals to an extremely broad age demographic, and woos over fans new and old in a manner that no show currently on television can manage. And while the cliché of hiding behind the sofa may not be as accurate as it once was, Doctor Who season three will undoubtedly leave you gripped to the TV. --Simon Brew

The return of The Doctor's ultimate enemy - the Machiavellian Master, is enough to whet the appetite of any fan, and John Simm's playing of the character is refreshingly assured if a little too normal looking (although I maintain that Derek Jacobi should have been given the part permanently). With a familiar Earth-based theme from RTD and co., the Jones family replace the Tylers as the characters through whom we witness the various invasions and terrors wrought upon our fragile planet, although unlike Rose's Mum and boyfriend this family is under surveillance...
The best episode is easily the seminal 'Blink', which somehow manages to tap into all that is good about Doctor Who whilst remaining refreshingly original. Stephen Moffat does emotive without being saccharine; sentimental without being cloying, and it is his episode that resonates longest after the credits have rolled.
The Shakespeare Code is also superb, with its Elizabethan authenticity practically wafting through the TV screen and the hideous Carrionites making their splendid bow in the Whoniverse. Two-hander 'Human Nature' and 'The Family of Blood' is pant-wettingly marvellous, and is arguably David Tennant's finest hour as The Doctor; Harry Lloyd, so wooden as Will Scarlet in Robin Hood, also puts in a show-stealing performance as the alien 'son of mine'.
The series also sees the welcome return of Captain Jack, taking a break from Torchwood, and with an intriguing reveal at the end as to his past, the show seems to be going from strength to strength.
I have to say that the final episode, with its unabashed portrayal of David Tennant's Doctor as some kind of Messiah, did disturb me somewhat, however with the knowledge that Stephen Moffat's new take on the Time Lord is just around the corner I can live with this; just.
After the tearfull farewell to Rose Tyler at the end of Series 2, who would replace her as The Doctor's Companion? In walks Martha Jones, a resourceful young medical student who helps The Doctor out in the first story of the new series, and as a reward, The Doctor takes her on his journey to run down every corridor in the universe being chased by alien monsters.
Series 3 is an improvement over Series 2, but it still isn't as consistant as Series 1. But there is nothing wrong with the series, bar the mediocre two part Dalek story and the incredibly convienient and unexplainable conclusion to the Series (No spoilers here). But, the Series has a host of high points, as all episodes after Evolution Of The Daleks are fantastic, including the frantic 42, a traditional Mad Scientist tale in The Lazarus Experiment and the terrifying creepfest that is Blink. You'll never look at a statue the same way (Or stop looking at one)!!! But best of all is the Two Part story that is Human Nature/The Family of Blood, where The Doctor becomes Human in 1913 to escape a group of aliens known as The Family.
Freema Agyman proves herself a better companion that Rose as Martha, and there is also a triumphant return of John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, last seen in Series 1, but now the lead in spin-off series Torchwood, for the last three episodes. Also included in the box is the christmas episode The Runaway Bride, with Comiedienne Catherine Tate as Donna Noble, The Doctor's part time companion.

This is portrayed in highly imaginative and original way that sets it apart from any Dr Who I've seen and yes! I am including the one where they go back in time for his companion to whiteness the death of her dad in 1987. That one was moving enough, but this even more so.
Yes! I haven't forgot about the one where he loses forever, his 19-year-old companion (madly in love with him) in a parallel universe and communicates with her as an apparition on a beach, by harnessing the power of a supernova. That one was brilliantly acted and very moving, but Blink is even more so. It really does deserve some sort of recognition like an Oscar and is ideal for educating children over the importance of caring about people and not taking your friends for granted.
