Tv Season Info

The 10th Doctor (David Tennent) returns in this third series of the BBC's thoroughly modern updating of the seminal sci-fi series "Doctor Who". This time, the Doctor is joined by a new companion, Martha (Freema Agyeman), a medical school student who encounters the time lord during an incident at a London hospital. Among the highlights of the third series are the return of the Doctor's arch nemesis, the Daleks; a trip to the moon; a journey aboard a space craft heading towards the sun; and a jaunt back to Elizabethan London. Later, another formidable foe from the Doctor's past, the Master, makes a return appearance.

Critic Reviews for Doctor Who Season 3

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

One of the triumphs here is that the narrative finally makes some dramatic sense of Martha and where her place is in the series.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

That's the simultaneous thrill and frustration of watching Doctor Who: You really never, ever know where this show is going to go next.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

This episode, the concluding story in a Manhattan adventure, features the most spectacular Dalek action in Doctor Who's history.

Feb 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Simm's portrayal of the Master as a dark reflection of Tennant's manic Doctor was, if you'll forgive the obvious pun, a master stroke.

Jun 15, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

The supporting cast does its usual excellent job in the third series.

Jun 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Series three's final treat is that the Master is back, played this time not by the great Roger Delgado (obviously), but first by Derek Jacobi and then by John Simm.

Audience Reviews for Doctor Who: Season 3

  • Dec 29, 2020
    This season tires to raise the bar, and even though it's still a great product sometimes it loses itself in some too-heavy episode. Good performance from Agyeman, but sadly her character has the difficult job to replace one of the most loved character of the series so far, and this feeling is present through all the season.
  • Dec 13, 2020
    Martha is one of my least favorite companions, but this season features "Human Nature", "Family of Blood", and "Blink" (all in a row, too!) so it automatically gets a high rating because of those impeccable episodes. "Blink", of course, was written by the great Steven Moffat. The season finale was alright, though stretching it over three episodes was a bit ridiculous, and it didn't fill them very well, either. Still, this season featured some amazing episodes, as I said, though it still had flaws ("Evolution of the Daleks", "42") and an overall meh companion.

    Another mind blowing performance by Tennant; the only thing wrong with this season is Martha Jones. Her character just feels like a sad replacement of Rose, she doesn't bring anything new to the show besides her whining jealousy and complaints everytime Rose is named. Really a pity, she could have been a great companion, if given the chance.

    One of the really good seasons!
