This review is from: Doctor Who: Series 1 - Volume 3 [DVD]  (DVD)
These are some of the greatest episodes in the whole series. The Long Game is my least favourite episode of Doctor Who, but it does have an eerie perfomance from Simon Pegg. It's set in Satellite Five, where something sinister is controlling the human race from behind the scenes. Father's Day is brilliantly scripted, acted wonderfully, and had the scary Reapers. In it Rose goes back in time to the day her father dies, but saves him, which brings the Reapers in too fix the wound in time. By killing everyone.
Now onto the scariest episode; The Empty Child. It is a great episode in every way, but young children will be scared by it. Everyone will be scared. Watch it while it's still light. It is set in WWII, and an unearthly child is roaming the streets, looking for his mummy. He has a gas mask stuck to his face, and a cut on his hand. It turns out that his injuries are spreading like the plague...
