Doctor Who series 4 volume 2 contains four episodes. I know alot of people have given Catherine Tate (very unfair) stick, I think she is great as Donna Noble in Doctor Who and has an excellent on screen chemistry with David Tennant.
The first story is the two parter The Sontaran Stratagem / The Poison Sky which sees the return of the Sontarans (who appeared in the classic stories The Time Warrior, The Sontaran Experiment, The Invasion Of Time and The Two Doctors). Also making a very welcome return is Martha Jones superbly played by Freema Agyeman. This story moves at a cracking pace with UNIT playing a major part. It's just like the good old days in the Jon Pertwee era.
Next up is the much hyped Doctor's Daughter. I have to say that I didn't enjoy this story very much. The plot was rather predictable with an obvious ending. I have a nasty feeling we havn't seen the last of the "Doctor's Daughter".
Things were back on track with The Unicorn And The Wasp in which the Doctor meets Agatha Christie. Now I am a great Christie fan and it was nice to count all the book titles included in the script. I even own a copy of the book Death In The Clouds with the giant wasp on the cover (painted by popular cover artist Tom Adams).
This is the vanilla edition with no extras but it does not spoil your enjoyment - great stuff.
