Doctor Who Series 4 Volume 2

Hot on the heels of the acclaimed third series, Doctor Who returns for a fourth instalment with a familiar face alongside the Doctor. Award-winning comedienne Catherine Tate returns as the Doctor's new companion, revisiting her role as Donna Noble who featured in the 2006 Christmas special The Runaway Bride. Martha Jones - who left the Doctor at the end of Series Three to break the unrequited circle of love she felt for him - also returns.

This DVD features four episodes:

The Sontaran Stratagem: Martha Jones summons the Doctor back to modern-day Earth, but an old enemy lies in wait.

The Poison Sky: As the Sontarans choke the Earth, the Doctor battles to keep both Martha and Donna alive.

The Doctor's Daughter: On the planet Messaline, in the middle of an endless war, the Doctor meets the most important woman of his life.

The Unicorn And The Wasp: In 1926, famed author Agatha Christie disappeared for 10 days. Was it amnesia? A nervous breakdown? Or a giant alien wasp?

The two part `The Sontaran Stratagem' and `The Poison Sky' sees the return of those classic Who villains to plague our Timelord once again. Martha calls The Doctor back to Earth when a UNIT operation to infiltrate and shut down ATMOS satellite navigation systems goes ahead. The simultaneous crashing of cars around the world, all using ATMOS, and a series of unexplained events lead UNIT to believe that there is an extraterrestrial presence behind the system. A good modern twist to the series

`The Doctor's Daughter' is a nice and well plotted self contained episode. The TARDIS deposits The Doctor, Martha and Donna on the war torn planet of Messaline. They are captured by soldiers and a tissue sample is taken from the Doctor in order to generate a clone soldier, his `daughter'. When Martha is captured by the amphibious Hath, The Doctor tries to unravel the cause of the war, while dealing with the sudden shock of becoming a `father' again. Not the strongest from the collection but definitely interesting.

`The Unicorn And The Wasp' is quite possibly the best episode of the current season to date. The Doctor and Donna arrive in 1920's England at a garden party where one of the guests is none other than Agatha Christie! When a murder occurs in the house, the Doctor, Donna and Agatha find themselves trying to uncover who the killer is before more people meet an untimely end.

Classic Doctor Who!
