Meet the new Doctor Who and his companion Rose, as together they set out across space and time in a series of exhilarating adventures and deadly confrontations.
Includes the first three episodes from the first series:
• The End of the World
• The Unquiet Dead
I have been a total Doctor Who fanatic since I saw reruns of the episodes with Jon Pertwee who I had first encountered in his guise as Worzel Gummidge. With a huge 9 year break between the eighth Doctor (Paul McGann) and this Doctor I was wondering if my favourite Gallifreyan was ever going to pass by Earth again. When I then saw that the delightful and delectable Billy Piper was going to be the new 'travelling companion' I was hooked all over again. These are the first three episodes in the new series starring Christopher Eccleston as the ninth incarnation of The Doctor, the last remaining survivor of the Timelord race. The first episode, "Rose" has The Doctor appearing in the middle of suburban London and meeting Rose as an incidental encounter while he tries to deal with a huge living blob of plastic that has the ability to animate any plastic object within its telepathic range. In "The End of the World" The Doctor takes Rose to see the day the Earth is destroyed by the sun expanding and engulfing it, but more dastardly deeds are afoot in this lonely little space station observatory. "The Unquiet Dead" has the Doctor and Rose exploring Voctorian England during the era of Charles Dickens trying to explain why the dead are walking and calling for help. If you enjoy sci-fi you should really enjoy this series of Doctor Who. Full of puns and insider jokes, sideways references to other shows and episodes from older Doctor series this is a really timely reinterpetation of a wonder show that first started back in 1963 with William Hartnell and has been going strong ever since.

Watch "The Unquiet Dead" for Eve Myles starring as 'Gwyneth'. She is currently starring in the Doctor Who spin-off series "Torchwood" (soon to air here on TVNZ) as 'Gwen'. Ironically Torchwood is set in Cardiff which is where "The Unquiet Dead" is set. Is there a connection?....
