Hiding behind the sofa was a mandatory thing to do if you were a child growing up watching Doctor Who. And this begining to the series provides those moments all over again and to be honest at moments I wanted to join my children behind that faithful sofa. The return of Doctor Who has been eagerly anticipated and the relationship between Christopher Ecclestone and Billie Piper provide an on-screen chemistry and exciting pace that makes compelling viewing. The only downside to my mind was that the second episode was a litle weak when it needed to punch a litle after the excitement of the first episode with the return of the Doctor. That said these three episode provide an exciing start with a scary assortment of aliens, plastic monsters and the walking dead for what I hope will be a whole new generation of children growing up scared of overly large pepper pots which shout exterminate and tin robots who want to assimalate you. And the scenes don't shake as the actors walk by nowadays! Can't wait for the rest of the series.
a solid start to the 'new' series, although episode 3 is inclined to rely on special effects rather than a decent plot!
The Doctor is BACK!! Christopher Eccleson is the 9th doctor with Billie Piper as his sidekick. This series sets more action packed adventures for the doctor and the three episodes featured on this DVD sees Rose meeting the Doctor for the first time and saving London from Alive Plastic, The End of the world in the year 5 billion and going back in time see Charles Dickens who helps the Doctor and Rose escape from Lost souls.
Altogether, this is a DVD which the Doctor Who fan has been waiting for and even those who have not previously enjoyed Doctor Who, I think that opinion will change with this series. Fantastic!

First three episodes of the BBC's relaunched series of Doctor Who, written by Russell T. Davies and starring Christopher Eccleston as the legendary Time Lord. In 'Rose', young Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) is having an ordinary day in the London department store where she works, until she is attacked in the basement by the shop dummies, which have somehow come alive. She is saved at the last minute by a mysterious stranger who introduces himself as the Doctor (Eccleston), and explains that she was attacked by an entity known as the Nestene Consciousness, a creature that can animate plastic and which is launching an invasion of the earth. With Rose's help, the Doctor is able at the last minute to destroy the Nestene Consciousness and save the world. Invited by the Doctor to join him on his travels through time and space, Rose begins an amazing journey that will take her far away from the mundane surroundings of her dead-end life. In 'The End of the World' the Doctor takes Rose to the year Five Billion, to an orbiting space station called Platform One where the richest creatures in the universe have come to watch the Earth be destroyed by its expanding sun. But, soon after they arrive, the Doctor discovers a sinister plan to destroy the space station and everyone on it, eventually tracing it back to the last human in the universe, the evil Cassandra (Zoë Wanamaker). In 'The Unquiet Dead', the time travellers arrive in Victorian Cardiff, where novelist Charles Dickens (Simon Callow) is giving a lecture. At the same time, in a disreputable funeral parlour, the dead are coming back to life, reanimated by the Gelth, a race of gaseous alien creatures intent on taking over the world. Dickens is quickly embroiled in the Doctor and Rose's attempts to halt the Gelth and save the planet.
