5.0 out of 5 stars Proving why series 3 is the best yet, 31 July 2007
This review is from: Doctor Who - Series 3 Vol. 3 [DVD] (DVD)
Yet another absolutely brilliant 3 episodes from series 3 of Doctor Who starring David Tennant as The Doctor.

The first two episodes, "Human Nature" and "The Family of Blood", are a double-feature based in England during 1913. The story is told partly flashing back to scenes in which the Tardis is being pursued, under attack using some kind of energy beam weapon. The Doctor tells Martha that those who are pursuing him could trace him across the universe, and he must undergo a transformation to turn him into a human. His pursuers are dying, the Doctor says. His plan is to transform into a human for three months, by which time those beings should all be dead. His Time Lord configuration is stored in a fob watch and Martha is charged with guarding it. As a human, John Smith, the Doctor becomes a schoolteacher in Farringham School in England before the Great War. The story picks up two months into his human life. Smith is unaware of his previous life as a Time Lord, and his character is quiet, a little timid and introspective. He has dreams of being a Time Lord and sometimes sketches them in a notebook, his "Journal of Impossible Things". Martha (who is aware of what is happening and remembers everything) is his maid.

In the third episode, "Blink", (set mainly in 2007), Sally Sparrow breaks into a dilapidated house called Wester Drumlins to take photographs. There she discovers behind the peeling wallpaper a message from "the Doctor" dated 1969, calling her by name and telling her to "duck now", just before an object launched from behind nearly hits her. She then returns the next day with her friend, Kathy Nightingale. A man soon arrives at the door with a decades-old letter from Kathy, who has just disappeared. Sally thinks this is a prank, and while searching for her, Sally encounters three Weeping Angel statues, one holding a Yale key. She takes the key and leaves the house, unaware that the Weeping Angels are watching her from the windows.

There are 3 pretty creepy episodes on this DVD which are also probably the best episodes from the whole of series 3. Once again David Tennant plays The Doctor brilliantly, beaming with confidence and wit. His John Smith character in the double-bill really shows his acting capabilities portraying a character that is very different to The Doctor. Freema Agyeman continues her role as The Doctor's companion, Martha. Again, another excellent performance and one of the strongest companions so far. Overall this is a top quality sci-fi series and these are 3 of the best episodes to prove it.
