Critic Reviews for Doctor Who Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

I'm not absolutely sure that "Army Of Ghosts"/"Doomsday" is the best of the five Russell T. Davies-penned finales, but it's definitely the one that is most solid in its construction.

Doctor Who Season Two (or Season 28, depending on your anal-retentiveness) has been a string of entertaining highs and lows, in terms of both quality and intensity.

Dec 2, 2013 | Full Review…

This two-part finale ends Season 2 with a breathtaking epic that is nevertheless intensely personal.

May 7, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

BBC execs thought they could update the series, take a giant leap in production values and regenerate ratings, and they were right.

Mar 25, 2019 | Full Review…

David Tennant excels as the Doctor, bringing a wholly different characterization than Christopher Eccleston.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Doctor Who is not only looking at how things were, but also at how they are, using the lens of history to gain perspective on the present.

Dec 2, 2013 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

This is sci-fi television at its finest.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 2

    This second season follow the success of the first one, and Tennant performance is wonderful. Very good writing and touching stories. A must see for any DW fan!
  • Dec 24, 2020
    Very enjoyable. Great Doctor Who. Fine storytelling.
  • Dec 13, 2020
    David Tennant is one of the best Doctors, but S2 had more terrible episodes like the aptly named "Idiot's Lantern", "Love and Monsters" in which they squander a young kid's great idea by letting a bad writer pen the episode, and "Fear Her" that featured another interesting premise that had a bad plotline and a weak ending. Billie Piper is one of my favorite companions and Tennant is one of my favorite doctors, but this is one of the weaker seasons. "Doomsday" and "The Girl in the Fireplace" are utterly fantastic, though.

    LIKED: David Tenant is my second favourite doctor and he is awesome as the doctor. he works well with Billie Piper. this Season has many outstanding episodes such as School Reunion and Army of Ghosts/Doomsday. the Cliffhangers are awesome as well. DISLIKED: The letdown of episodes are Fear her and Love & Monsters.
