5.0 out of 5 stars
A Television Triumph, 23 May 2009
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!!!!
