Tv Season Info

The BBC continues in its successful quest to rebrand the iconic "Doctor Who" franchise with this second series of 21st-century episodes. The kitschy sets of old have been discarded as the 10th incarnation of the Doctor (David Tennant) teams with his loyal companion Rose (Billie Piper) to zip through the galaxy in the Tardis while confronting a vast array of villains and intergalactic troublemakers. This time out, Queen Victoria and the Cybermen come face to face with Tennant's Doctor, and longstanding fans of the show will be delighted to see the return of everyone's favorite robotic dog K9.

Critic Reviews for Doctor Who Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

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…

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.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

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 is sci-fi television at its finest.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 2

  • Mar 04, 2019
    Yes, may not be groundbreaking like the first series, but really holds up and Tennent immediately gets the ball going. The occasional dud episodes like Love and Monsters and Fear Her does let his series down, but there are many fantastic moments that will live in the memory for many Who fans. Most notably, the finale which I won't spoil. This series is also a good starting part if you're interested in watching New Who , especially if you're a die-heart Tenth Doctor fan.
  • Jan 20, 2019
    very good, Rose is much better and David Tennant
  • Jan 15, 2019
    The point at which the show really hit its stride, establishing the precedent that Doctor Who could be both excellent and Sci-fi
  • Jan 13, 2019
    a ver ymuddled and messy debut year for Tennant, Fireplace the return of Sarah Jane, Satan Pit and a dramatic final are highlights.
  • Jan 13, 2019
    David Tennant takes over as The Doctor and does a great job putting his own spin on it. He has basically defined who The Doctor is in modern Who. Rose continues to be a strong character and the stories and special effects continue to be high quality, very entertaining and respectful to the original series.
  • Jan 09, 2019
    David Tennant starts as the new iteration of the doctor again showing both the excitement off seeing new thing but a harsher take when needed. The return of classic enemies including the cybermen, which are my favorite episodes (both old and new who).
  • Jan 08, 2019
    Some truly great episodes burdened by some not so great ones and a couple of terrible ones. I love David Tennant as 10 but the chemistry and friendship between 9 and Rose suffered in this one with Rose’s attitude of basically obsessing over this Doctor and to hell with everything else, which was sad to see. Doomsday is a great episode because they handled both the Daleks and Cyberman brilliantly.
  • Jan 03, 2019
    Amazing love this show
  • Jan 02, 2019
    Wow! David Tennant is the best!
  • Jan 01, 2019
    possibly the best series of doctor who to date. loved every episode and roses departure was beautiful
