Action scenes, a great score, Brit-silliness, some hotties, English accents, a story with morals, and David Tennant. What's not to love?

After too many years, the Doctor is reunited with his companion, Sara Jane Smith. And we can't leave out K-9, the infamous dog-robot. I've been a fan of the Doc's from the beginning and the current one is excellent. People say so and so was the best Doctor. Not true. They are all brilliant in their own way. Over time (ha ha) the special effects have improved greatly though. Remember the original Daleks? With the plungers? Well, things look a bit different as we get older and so do the Doctor's challenges. So suspend your disbelief - it is bigger on the inside - and take the plunge for free on Amazon Prime and watch the Doctor reunite with Sara Jane. I've seen this episode about 5 times already, but when the pizza comes out of the oven, I'm taking the plunge for the 6th and not the last, time.

David Tennant ruins my life with his amazingness. He's brilliant as the Doctor, with the typical goofy attitude and, when appropriate, the lonely warrior side. And he's definitely a little bit foxy. :)

I've been a fan of Doctor Who since the 70's and I never thought another Doctor could out-charm actor, Tom Baker. But David Tennant is a wonder - simply the BEST. Must see. Repeatedly. So must own!

The previous year, Christopher Eccleston brought us the 9th Doctor with Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) at his side as companion. Unfortunately, Eccleston only did one year in the role. Fortunately, upon him stepping down, David Tennant stepped up and into the role as the 10th Doctor - and what an *amazing* job he did. More Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) to boot. Tennant has been said by many viewers of the show to be the best Doctor ever, out of all the actors who've played the character over the years and decades. And there is a lot of Doctor Who out there, years and years of material to watch, hundreds of stories. That's high praise, but I found it well earned. Rose is a good companion, and Tennant is truly one of the best actors to have left his mark on the show and the Doctor's character. For Tennant "Who" fans, this is where it all began - his first year as The Doctor. He also did a couple more series/seasons and a few specials as the 10th Doctor. I don't think anyone who loves Doctor Who would be anything less than impressed by this series.

This is one of my favorite episodes of the new series, by far. Every time I watch it I cry like a baby. David Tennant is such an amazing actor and he definitely pulls out the big guns for this episode. The only issue I have with the episode is the very very end. I understand that they want to set up for next season, but I feel like it detracted a little bit from the gravity of the episode.
