[Highly rated reviewer]He comes from the planet Gallifrey, belonging to the race known as 'Time Lords'. He, a friendly, mysterious time-space travelling alien who calls himself 'the Doctor'. He journeys through time-space in a craft called the TARDIS (an acronym that stands for 'Time And Relative Dimension In Space'). In his TARDIS, the Doctor can travel anywhere - he can move through space, forward in time, backward in time, sideways and throughout our current time and in and out of parallel universes.
In his travels, the Doctor (David Tennant) and his travelling companion Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) have encountered many alien species - some friendly and some very, very nasty ones.
You are in for the trip of your lifetime.
Tooth And Claw:
The Doctor and Rose travel back to the year 1879 when an encounter in the Scottish Highlands with Queen Victoria and a band of Warrior Monks reveals a deadly trap, dating back centuries.
Why is a Secondary School being investigated by the Doctor's former TARDIS companion, Sarah Jane-Smith (aided by an electronic mobile computer, K9)?
The Girl In The Fireplace
Madame de Pompadour finds the court at Versailles under attack from sinister clockwork killers. Her only hope of salvation lies with a mysterious stranger known simply as the Doctor.

Three very different talesBy FestiveLady (28 reviews) from Northumberland, England , 24 Oct 2009
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideVol.2: TOOTH AND CLAW
By accident the Doctor and Rose bump into Queen Victoria and her guards, on a wild Scottish moor in 1879. They take shelter at the remote Torchwood estate, unaware of the trap set for the Queen by a sinister sect of monks and their centuries-old alien god. But as the monster goes on the rampage, the Doctor realises there is a trap within the trap. Guest star: Pauline Collins
This story is significant as it establishes Torchwood for the rest of the series. The monster is a staple in horror films but don't write it off for that. The plot has some interesting twists.
Vol.2: SCHOOL REUNION
The Doctor and Rose go undercover at Deffry Vale High School following UFO sightings overhead. Sarah Jane Smith, a long-previous companion of the Doctor, arrives, also to investigate, and is shocked when she sees the TARDIS, a blast from her past. Meanwhile, what is the significance of the oil the chips are cooked in? Who or what are the Krillitanes?
Guest stars: Elisabeth Sladen, Anthony Head, (voice of) John Leeson
If you've seen the Classic Series (it's not essential for this story), you'll enjoy spotting the numerous in-references. Watching how Rose and Sarah Jane get on (or not!) is fun, but the Doctor's Flying Dutchman existence is also poignantly explored.
Vol.2: THE GIRL IN THE FIREPLACE
The Doctor, Rose and Mickey arrive on a broken-down deserted 51st century spaceship. What happened to the crew? Why are the repair robots using time windows to stalk a woman of the 18th century? And why her in particular? Guest star: Sophia Myles
At times charming, humorous, creepy, bizarre, sad. Look at the external design of the spaceship, then see how appropriate it is for the monsters.
QualityBy Randomfilmbuff (327 reviews) from London , 28 Aug 2009This was your standard Billie Doctor who disk. The last episode with the French girl was brilliant!
Doctor Who-The new series-Series 2-Vol.2By a customer from St. Ives , 17 Feb 2009What can I say? Another 3 great episodes, absolutely 'timeless'. A definate must!
Heart-wrenching momentBy simonGardener (3 reviews) from Newport , 16 Aug 2008this release gets 5* from me just for the moment when Sarah Jane Smith sees the Tardis in the school gym at night and the camera pans around to show her reaction and the Doctor standing behind her. When she realises that he's there and turns around and confronts him claiming 'I thought you died' , tears welled up in my eyes. the first time, the second time and the third time - I'm sure when i get around to watching it again it will happen once more
I'm 40 - Tom Baker was my doctor and Sarah Jane was a huge part of that.
GoodBy a customer from Loughborough , 01 Apr 2008Kids love them. Wish I could get to watch the TV
