1.0 out of 5 stars Getting worse as the show progresses, 8 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Primeval - Series 3 [DVD] (DVD)
I loved series 1! I liked series 2! However Series 3 has ruined Primeval for me! The stories are not clever- they are pointless! There is only so much you can do with this concept... time to stop!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back with a Bang, 23 May 2009
I was extremely excited that Russel T davis was taking over Doctor Who. He is an excellent Writter who adds so many twists and turns that its hard to predict what is going to happen.

Series One (of New who) is a good taster of what is to come in later seasons. It is funny, scary and thrilling to watch and can be enjoyed by both adults and children alike. Doctor Who has somewhat matured which is so nice to see. I enjoy watching new doctor who episodes better then classic doctor who episodes from the 60's to the 80's. (and thats saying something as I was a huge fan of the classic series and barely missed an episode)

Rose is a Great companion that (at first) seems to be slightly thick but she grows on you and matures as a character which is great to see.

Christopher eccelston is a fabulous doctor! He is darker then his previous incarnations but he makes a huge impact on the show. Himself and Rose make a perfect pair.

I didnt realise that almost all the episodes were earth bond. That didnt bother me though! They are all still amazing.

My top 5 episodes from the series:

1. The empty child/the doctor Dances
2. BAD WOLF/ The Parting of the ways
3. Dalek
4. Fathers Day
5. Aliens of London/ Wor;d War Three

My least favourite being 'the end of the world' but thats not to say i didnt like the episode. That was just the poorest (in my opinion) although it had its moments!

An excellent box set! BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Television Triumph, 23 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ever since Russel T Davis took over as head writter, Doctor Who has gone from strength to strength.
This DVD Box set proves this, with its excellent storie lines and well thought out finale - which included the heart-breaking exit of one of my favourite companions, Rose Tyler.

The acting compliments the season amazingly. You can tell they have a passion for this show and that helps. Tennant and Piper are great together with so much energy and chemistry.

The 10th Doctor: David is an excellent doctor (my favourite) and he is well introduced in 'the christmas invasion'. This is a perfect first series for him!

Rose Tyler: blossoms and has come along way from the first episode where she was a 'chavtastic shop assistant'

My Top 5 stories from this season would have to be

1. The Army of Ghosts/Doomsday
2. The impossible planet/ The Satan Pit
3. The Girl in the fireplace
4. Tooth and claw
5. Rise of the cybermen/ The Age of Steel

My least favourite would have to be Love and Monsters. This was somewhat dissapointing but not a complete disaster. The lack of Rose and the Doctor in this episode was probably one thing that let he episode down but was a clever idea (that failed). Also Elton -as a character- didn't really do much for me... if that makes sense.

The special Features are really good too in this box set. These include deleted scenes, bloopers, trailer and insite into how series two was made. There is also a very nice feature which is video dairies from both Billie Piper and David Tennant. Billies isn't very long and only really has behind the scene footage for the first 3 episodes. Davids however is a very long insiteful dairy that is very interesting to watch. Disc one also includes the children in need mini-episode, which is a nice feature.

Overall this box set is a must buy!!!!
