Description

Christopher Eccleston's Doctor is wise, funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner, his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world is in danger. However, when it comes to interpersonal 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 soul mates. 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...

    This is such a good series. However, it would be good if the quality was better than 360p/480p. Still recommending though.

    I have got a lot to say about this series which is brilliant. Christopher Eccleston as the 9th Doctor, Billie Piper as Rose Tyler, Camille Coduri as Jackie Tyler, Sean Dingwall as Pete Tyler and Noel Clarke as Mickey Smith. All brilliant actors. Rose: Introduces the 9th incarnation of the Doctor, his brand new version of the Tards, Rose Tyler as the companion, Jackie Tyler and Mickey Smith with the re-introduction of the Doctors old enemy the Autons who first appeared in the episode Spearhead from Space in 1970. The End of the World: This episode introduces the younger generation of viewers to the fact that the Tardis is a spacetime machine that can travel everywhere and anywhere. It introduces the concept of a last surviving human, the trampoline known as Cassandra who's body has been nipped and tucked until she looked like a trampoline. It also looks at how the Earth may end which makes the episode all the more interesting. The Unquiet Dead: The Doctor and Rose travel back in time to Cardiff in the year 1869 and this is interesting to me as I love the history of the Victorian era. They meet Charles Dickens and fight the Gelth, a bodyless species that inhabit dead bodies and live inside gas, inside Sneeds Undertakers. Its also an interesting episode as it introduces Gwyneth, the girl who can communicate with the Gelth and she uses this ability to help the Doctor, Rose, Charles and Mr Sneed to try and understand why the Gelth have come to Earth. The Gelths purpose relates to the Doctors past in the Time War. Aliens of London (Part 1): The Doctor and Rose travel to London in the year 2006, 1 year past when they had intended to go to. The Doctor meets Jackie Tyler for the 1st time and Mickey Smith for the 2nd time. The Doctor and Mickey are hardly friends for a while after everything that the Doctor did during their 1st encounter when he and Rose were fighting against the Autons. There is an alien invasion caused by the Slitheen. The Slitheen kill human politicians and disguise themselves in the skins of their victims making their victims look alive and well. This episode is interesting as it introduces the concept of aliens disguised as humans and blending in with their surroundings. This intrigues the Doctor also as he wants to get in on all of the action to see whats going on and he knows there is something wrong as this isn’t just mankinds first contact with an alien race. There is more to this alien invasion than meets the eye. World War Three (Part 2): The Doctor, Rose, MP (Member of Parliament) Harriet Jones as played by Penelope Firth, Mickey Smith and Jackie Tyler have oncouvered the Slitheen in secret as the Human race are still oblivious to the fact that the aliens invading Earth are disguised as UK politicians who have now warned the world of an incoming attack from other alien species but the Doctor is suspicious of this warning as the Slitheen have got a reputation as intergalactic criminals and so he, Rose, Harriet, Mickey and Jackie delve in further to find out more about the Slitheen, where they come from, how to defeat them and with very little time left in there hands to stop the Slitheen. This episode continues the interesting concept of aliens on Earth disguised as humans only to infiltrate the government to destroy Planet Earth. Dalek: I love this episode as it re-introduces the Doctors oldest enemies the Daleks only with 1 surviving Dalek from the Time War. The Doctor and Rose travel to underground museum in Utah in the year 2012 as the Tardis has received an SOS originating from somewhere within the museum. The Doctor and Rose meet Henry Van Stat, the owner of the museum and a young British employee called Adam Mitchell as played by Bruno Langley who plays Todd Grimshaw in Coronation Street. The Doctor discovers that Henry is holding a living Dalek as a museum piece and torturing it to within an inch of its life. The Doctor also discovers that it was the Dalek that sent the SOS to anyone who would come to its rescue. The Dalek is accidentally freed by Rose which puts lives of the meuseums occupants at risk as well as the lives of everyone in America and the world as a now fully repaired Dalek is enough to wipe out the Human Race. The Doctor has never really trusted Henry for keeping the Dalek alive as the Dalek is a reminder of how the Daleks destroyed Gallifrey in the Time War, the Doctors home planet. There is also mention of Davros, the creator of the Daleks who was supposedly killed during the Time War. The Dalek takes Rose as a hostage but oddly develops an emotional attachment towards Rose. The Long Game: The Doctor, Rose and Adam travel to Satelite 5 in the far future to see the Human Race evolve technologically and to see them try and reach for the stars but along with this the Doctor, Rose and Adam see that the Humans have developed a strange piece of technology that can transmit data in the Human Brain via a hole in the Human forehead that can open and close. This makes the Doctor suspicious especially as the Doctor has been told about floor 500 which makes the Doctor more and more curious and he notices how odd the space stations cooling system is as the all of the floors except for floor 500 are all hot and floor 500 is freezing cold. Now why would that be? Adam proves himself to be an utterly useless companion as he breakes the Doctors rule about not informing Humans in the past about events in the future as history could easily be changed dangerously. Fathers Day: The Doctor and Rose travel backwards in time to London in the year 1987. This is interesting as this introduces the viewer to Roses history as a baby to try and find out more about Rose as a character and thus we meet Roses father Peter Alan Tyler, an unsuccessful business man who trying to sell water as his business but is struggling with every attempt. Her father is killed but she changes history and saves him much to the dismay of the Doctor. Great series

    The best doctor ever, even after ten years. What Eccleston and Piper achieve with what was available to them was amazing. The special affects arent the best by todays standards but they were good at the time. I doubt the ressurection of the series would have worked had Eccleston not been the first in the new series' (ninth over all) his enthusiasm is possatively contageous.
  • Great Series!

    Fantastic series, perfect way to start DW all over again! People moaning it being SD, there was no HD until 2009! Also, I had to download most of my episodes again after a month. They just disappeared.
  • Price increase from 9.99 to 20.99 overnight!

    The drastic increase in price borders ridiculous, I was intending to purchase but with the price increase I now no longer intend to. Its not only this season but all the season have increased in price at a disproportionate level. The price of this season is more than the newest season of doctor who, which makes no sense. The BBC need to sort their prices out before they lose a loyal customer.
  • Great series

    This series is very good and Christopher Eccleston makes a great doctor. Rose, the companion is awesome and so are the monsters. Russel T Davies is an immense writer with lots of good episodes. I didn't really like Boom Town though but there's always one. The awesomeness of Dalek makes up for it.
  • TERRIBLE RESOLUTION - Great show tho

    This is shocking that Itunes is charging a regular price for such a low quality product. The Show is great, naturally, but Itunes are taking their customers for a bunch of idiots.

    This is Doctor Who at its absolute best. David Tennant was very good, but Christopher Eccleston? Even better I say. Well done to everyone involved in this series; each episode is true genius, unlike the wholly unlikeable Matt Smith, who's episodes cannot even be compared one bit to these ones.
  • Upgrade to HD please

    I wish the new series of Dr Who with Matt Smith as the Doctor were this good!!! I absolutely love this TV show but I do agree with other comments about the resolution :( it's a shame that a show as good as this isn't in it's best form!!!
