"Mummy...?"
5 stars"

Christopher Eccleston plays the Doctor – and no one has ever played the role quite like him. Take that how you will.

Unlike the other 3 DVD's in Series 1, which only have 3 episodes each, this DVD contains 4. “The Long Game” has a clever storyline, but I thought the villian was dreadful. Russel T Davies is in charge of Doctor Who, the man credited with bringing the show back (for which I am personally grateful), and he has some of the most brilliant ideas for stories – but they almost all finish so weakly. Unfortunately, this is another, but it does connect well with his idea for the final 2-part episode in the series on Volume 4.

“Father's Day” is your classic “time-paradox-ripping-the-world-apart” story. I get the feeling it's only purpose was to try and develop Rose's character. It's not bad.

The undoubted highlight – The 2-part episode “The Empty Child” and “The Doctor Dances”. It's got it all – it has the introduction of Captain Jack Harkness, well timed humour, a classic story line – and it is wet-your-pants scary. The actress who plays Nancy is fantastic, and you'd never believe the word “mummy” would send such shivers up your spine…

It's half and half – but the two part episode truly makes it worth it.

Description

Christopher Eccleston's Doctor is wise and funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner (it's difficult keeping up with friends when your day job involves flitting through time and space), his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world's in danger. But when it comes to human relationships, he can be found wanting. That's why he needs new assistant Rose. Rose is a shop-girl from the present day. From the moment they meet, the Doctor and Rose are soulmates.

They understand and complement each other. As they travel together through time, encountering new adversaries, the Doctor shows her things beyond imagination. She starts out as an innocent, unfettered by worldly concerns. But she ends up an adventurer who, by the end of the series, can never go home again…
