Most of the Daleks on this DVD go 'Extarminate!' instead of 'Exterminate!'


Fear her: rubbish
Army of ghosts: good
Doomesday: Magnificent(ly good)

With the exception of the pretty terrible and slightly average Fear Her, these episodes are fantastic. Watch them. NOW.

This is the final volume of the Tenth Doctor's first series. Fear Her is an average story. A child abducting people in her drawings is very unbelievable, even in Doctor Who standards. The line I like about this episode is the Doctor saying 'I was a dad once...' this is a reference to the Classic Series with Susan Foreman being the Doctor's grand-daughter. Army of Ghost/Doomsday is a fine two parter. This does tie up all of the lose ends of this series and throws in two classic villains- the Daleks and the Cybermen. As much as I like this story, I don't think it as good as The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit story because the Doctor was dealing with a creature that he didn't know what it was, but here he knows who the villians are after facing them many times.

Fear Her - Like 'The Idiots Lantern', a rushed filler episode

Army of Ghosts/Doomsday - In one word, 'Overrated'

Fear Her is excellent but...

Fear Her is the third story of the second series that is actually anything bordering on watchable. This story is very interesting to watch, and the characters again are well performed and come across as sympathetic and believable. This story has a good central theme too, and the pencil squiggle is well utilised, if its only in one scene! And Rise gets to do something for once. And she takes the lead well here, not being that brat that she cant escape from being for long. There is real drama in here, and the Isolus is a wonderful looking little sad creature. Its not often we get a story with a creature that isnt actually evil, just misguided. And the end of this story forecasts doom coiming...but does it?

In short the answer is no. For a start the first episode of the finale is boring and doesnt get motivated until right at the very end. And the cybermen are killed far too easily. Just one Dalek blast lays them down! How damn stupid can you get? These poor cybermen have so many weaknesses for such an apparently strong race. In the beginning it was only radiation, then gold...when is it going to end for these brill monsters? They have been badly written for in the new series as a whole. Whilst the action may rise in Doomsday, it is enough. It is all so very predictable. The Rose goodbye may well be emotional, and extremely well acted, but this one scene alone cant stop the fact that this finale isnt all that much to write home about. But that final scene with Catherine Tate aboard the TARDIS holds a lot of promise...maybe we're in for some fun in the near future...I hope so. I need it.

Go back
