Doctor Who Season 4, follows the title character, The Doctor (David Tennant), and his companion Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) across the universe in typical Tardis fun one expects from the show. For those that wish to start on the show Season 4 is not for you (although I do suggest Season 1 with Christopher Eccelston and Billie Piper respectively which are FANTASTIC!).
Donna Noble returns from her one-shot appearance last season and continues to be in a older sister type role to The Doctor. Although Season 4 isn't the best of Tennant tenure as the Doctor its far from the worse. Memorable episodes include Silence in the Library, The Doctor's Daughter, Planet of the Odd, and the Season Finale which brings back many familiar faces old and new in The Stolen Earth and Journey's End.
Tennant continues his stellar performance as arguably one of the most acclaimed Doctor's ever while he is accompanied by fan-favorite companion Catherine Tate. The Duo work well together and if viewers were put off by her in Season 3 (like I was) she is redeemed a few times during the season. Like any other season of Who, this season is filled with moments that are both memorable and essential for future episodes of the show (such as The End of Time special). While the season doesn't make me want to rant and rave with each episode, it is solid all the way through.
This marks the last full season of David Tennant as the Doctor (for now he will just do mini series and a tv movie before he goes away), and just like in the other seasons,this one as well is full of action, comedy and drama.
Also we see the return of Catherine Tate, this time as the Doctor's companion, and we get the pleasure of watching Billie Pipper playing Rose Tyler once again.
If you are new to the series you probably will not enjoy this set as much, so I would recommend you start with season one and watch your way up to this one, but if you are a fan, this a must have.
The latest series of the longest running sci/fi fantasy EVER !
The Doctor(once again played by the supremely watchable David Tennant) is stalked and located by Donna Noble(Catherine Tate), who many will remember from "The Runaway Bride" Christmas special(2006). Once Donna has met up with the Doctor and convinced him to take her with him, the two set off on a series of adventures where they encounter exotic planets, greedy villains, and more than a few near fatal incidents...All the while "the Darkness is coming from across the stars".
I can't recommend new Dr. Who enough. It's become my favorite tongue-in-cheek escape from reality. If you have yet to experience the humor, heartache, compassion, and cerebral stimulation "Doctor Who" provides, I sincerely pity you... :)
Let's face it, I am a Dr. Who Fan. I have been since, as a American, I discovered the series in the mid 1970's. American was not an easy place for me in the 70's. I was not a hippy. I was not like everyone. I was more into reading books (I had a subscription to scifi books at Doubleday) and tripping out on all the wonderfully imagery found in them than taking drugs. I was a Malestrom AFB (my husband was in crypto in the Air Force) when I watched my first TV Dr. Who (a rerun on TV). The Snow Birds (from Canada) were on the base, but I would not leave until the show finished. I have been an avid fan since then. (I must admit to earlier sins of watching Star Trek and yes, forgive me, Lost in Space).
I have most of the Dr. Who books that I could find at my local bookstores. The excitement really hit when I found E-Bay!
I have to admit, being a little disappointed in the 1999 Dr. Who movie. I guess, by then I had built up missing Dr. Who for so long that nothing could have lived up to my expectation.
But when the new British series started, I was in Heaven on earth. I loved the 9th Dr. and cried when he left. I loved the 10th Dr. and am scared at the thought of a new Dr. (The new Dr. looks to Boris Korloff for me. I have watched him in a few things (Ruby in the Smoke PBS series) and did not really like him. So, we will see....
I loved Donna. Donna was not about romance with Dr. Who, but action. I really loved her "get in his face" attitude, etc. I will really miss her. Although, I suspect she will be back for the last of the 10th Doctor's going away. Don't get me wrong, I like Rose. I preferred the chemistry between the 9th Dr. and Rose over that of Rose and the 10th Dr. I guess I am pretty much alone in that analysis. I did not care for Martha, her character mopped to much about liking the Dr. and him liking Rose. My all time favorite so far has been Donna. Donna is an adventurer and "no nonsense" gal on the series.
Hence, I love this DVD set. I am excited I found it on ebay. I am after all, on a fixed income and ebay lets me find things I want for a price I can afford. I will be looking forward to the 5th series. I hope I am wrong about the 11th Dr.
AMAZING! This series continues to follow David Tennent as the 10th incarnation of the protagonist of the BBC sci-fi series "Doctor Who". The Doctor is a centuries-old alien humanoid of sorts from the planet called Gallifrey. He travel through time and space and parallel worlds in his spaceship called the TARDIS, most often with his "companions". The companions tend to be young, attractive women who help move the narrative along from a more humanistic point of view. Because the Doctor is a "man of different faces", he can regenerate his body whenever he is injured or close to death. This leads to different personalities, (and different women as well). In this series, actress Catherine Tate portrays the saucy temp worker Donna Noble. Together they face off even more unimaginable quests, most importantly, their friendship.
