The year the Doctor got his groove back
I've been a "Doctor Who" fan since the 70s, and I was thrilled when the series was relaunched by Brit Uber-scribe Russell T. Davies in 2005 with Christopher Eccleston ("The Others," "28 Days Later," NBC's "Heroes," "The Seeker: The Dark is Rising") as The Doctor. In its second season, though, NuWho really hit its stride with leading man David Tennant ("Blackpool," "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"). Tennant brings an energy to The Doctor that I've never seen, and the team of writers penning the episodes are among the best sci-fi writers going in the U.K. The show manages to blend its sci-fi premise with real human drama and humor in every episode, and even a "bad" episode is better than two-thirds of anything else on television. Pay particular attention to Episode 3, "School Reunion" (featuring two classic-era "Who" characters, and "Buffy" star Anthony Head as the villain), Episode 4, "The Girl in the Fireplace" (written by "Coupling" and "Jekyll" creator and soon-to-be "Who" showrunner Steven Moffat, and starring Sofia Myles of "Tristan and Isolde" and "Moonlight"), Episodes 5 & 6, "The Rise of the Cybermen" and "The Age of Steel" (which, in addition to pairing Tennant up again with his "Goblet of Fire" father, Roger Lloyd Pack, introduce a storyline that pays off big in season 4), and the two-part finale, "Army of Ghosts" and "Doomsday" (which is set up so brilliantly that it still punches me in the gut after repeat viewings). I love that iTunes is carrying the series, but new viewer beware: between each season of NuWho is a one-off Christmas special that connects some really important dots between one season's finale and the next's premiere, and they're not available (a temporary omission, I hope). Despite this, I can't recommend the series enough. Allons-y!!!!
Hitting its Stride
Doctor Who does not revel in guns, special effects and over-sexualized characters like American SciFi. Instead it focuses on smart, funny, well-written and fast-paced adventures. Season 2 is when the show begins to mature, and has some of the best stories so far. Highlights (aside from Rose's character arc): The Girl in the Fireplace, Love & Monsters, and of course the stellar Army of Ghosts/Doomsday. School Reunion is also excellent for followers of the old show.
Missing Season opener Christmas Invasion
This has all the shows but the one that starts the new season off and lets you see how the new Doctor discovers who he is in Christmas Invasion It's great iTunes finally got Doctor Who, but every episode is important
