Episodes 11-14 from the third series of the relaunched update of the classic sci-fi programme, in which David Tennant returns to his role as The Doctor along with his new companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman). Episodes include: 'Utopia', 'The Sound Of Drums' and 'Last Of The Time Lords'.
The return of The Master has been one of the many recent triumphs of Doctor Who. And with this, the final single DVD release of season three of the show, the three concluding episodes deliver John Simms majestic take on one of the Doctors deadliest and oldest enemies.
These three episodes also see Torchwoods Captain Jack Harkness rejoining the Tardis, and along with the Doctor and Martha, theres a mighty battle to be fought.
It all starts with "Utopia", one of the very finest episodes of Doctor Whos third season. This is a clever, slow-burning tale, with Derek Jacobi guest-starring, and it features a final ten minutes so good its enough to make Who fans weep. Things continue with some style in "The Sound Of Drums", where The Master really comes into his own, replete with a devastating cliffhanger to set up the season finale. And ironically, its that finale, "The Last Of The Time Lords", thats the weakest of the three here, a slightly muddled--but still very enjoyable--wrapping up of a very strong series.
The skill of these three episodes is how cleanly they interweave with the subtle building blocks that have been put in place for them over the duration of Doctor Whos run. And with an ending the bodes well for the 2007 Christmas special too, this DVD is further proof of just what strong shape Doctor Who is in. Cracking stuff. --Jon Foster

The Second episode "Sound of the Drums" is a follow on to "Utopia" but is set in London. We found out that the Master is Prime Minister of Great Britain. This is a great episodes, it's funny and a good story.(10/10)
The third and final episode of the series named "Last of the Timelords" is a great, exciting, thrilling episode. The Master has fully taken control in this episode, although it doesn't go to plan.(10/10)
I strongly recommend you buy this.(Overall:10/10)
One reviewer on this page says: 'It's hardly The Daemons'. No, it's not. It's a thousand times better than that Jon Pertwee story in every conceivable way: plot, dialogue, acting, special effects, just general FEEL, everything. Celebrate the apex of this wonderful TV series.
The Sound Of Drums, (10/10), sees John Simm as Prime Minister, Harold Saxon, and his scene-stealing peformances again set the tone for the episode gassing his entire cabinet. One classic exchange between Saxon, and one of his ministers (Johnathan Gecks) calling him insane, and in response wearing his gas-mask gives him the thumbs-up before he dies.
The centrepiece of the episdode is the exchange between Saxon, and the American President, and this is where the fun part of the episode bursts into life when John Simm is really in his element making fun of the American President, and taking the piss before killing the President on The Valliant. He ages the Doctor with his laser screwdriver, and his classic line as regards to the shooting of Captain Jack Harkness, "He's not dead for long so I get to kill him again." It again shows the class of actor John Simm who clearly must be enjoying himself with the part he has now made his own.
The Last Of The Timelords, (10/10), is an excellent way to end Series three.Read more ›
Do it again. Thats right... just... above the left shoulder.
I have to say that I enjoyed the "Sound of drums" episode so much that at the end of it I needed to locate a box of tissues and take a run around the block. I just cannot apologise enough for such ridiculous behavior, except to say that now there are several people on the list to whom I would gladly fall at the feet of, send my underwear to and pay undying hommage to - and John Simm has now entered that charmed circle. His performance as the master is so stupifyingly brilliant that I feel - reborn - just by watching it!
But why? The bloke is off his face! He's MAD! He's EVIL!
So why do I desperately want to be like him?
This is perhaps the genius of the writing. I couldn't come up with this if you packed me into a 4 by 4 closet with unlimited pizza and a typewriter and the occasional conjugal visit. It simply would not happen. I know my limitations all too well, but in fact RT Davis has got my number and is simply rubbing this in my face now.
I realized that this whole season was remarkable from the beginning. I hadn't really enjoyed the Cybermen from the last series taking over London, but cleverly, it only seemed like TV after the usual time line re-embedding, but this season was wonderful. Space Rhinos. Shakespeare! The old Rugged cross (which had me quite literally sobbing for joy), stone statues, big crab monsters, cat women, public school boys, hair dying machines, giant cockroaches, gas attacks on the British cabinet, the sky splitting asunder to Voodoo Child, and... did I mention the Rhinos?
This series has hit highs that I could not have possibly anticipated, Martha Jones hits that spot every time, and John Simm is mad in only a way that I can fantasise about.
Because I'm really quite sensible. Honestly.

These episodes are Doctor Who at its best. The return of the Master only adds to the quality of the series and adds to an impressive story line.Published on 17 Nov. 2013 by mfsx7mh3
