Christopher Eccleston’s Doctor is wise and funny, cheeky and brave. An alien and a loner (it’s difficult keeping up with friends when your day job involves roaming through time and space), his detached logic gives him a vital edge when the world’s in danger. But when it comes to relationships, he can be found wanting. That’s why he needs Rose. Rose is a retail girl from the present day, trapped in a dull existence. From the moment they meet, the Doctor and Rose are soulmates. They understand and complete each other. With nothing to hold Rose back (neither her overbearing mum nor her hapless boyfriend), she chooses the Doctor and his promise of fantastic adventures across the universe. And he doesn’t let her down…
From foiling an alien plot to take control of the Earth to witnessing its end millions of years in the future; an encounter with Charles Dickens and the sinister, deadly Gelth; to the chance to see her late father once again–Rose has little chance to catch her breath. But, when the Doctor comes face-to-face with an enemy he had long thought dead, Rose and the whole of humanity are threatened with total destruction. Can the Doctor stop the invasion of the most lethal adversary he has ever had to contend with – the Daleks?
With high production values; innovative CGI from Oscar-winning company, The Mill; an all-star cast; and scripts from the cream of British writers led by Russell T. Davies, Doctor Who is the ultimate adventure in the human race – gripping, breathtaking, and action-packed.
The Guardian says, “I think it may be the single best piece of family-oriented entertainment BBC has broadcast in its entire history. It’s clever, it’s funny, it’s exciting, it’s moving, it’s got shades of Nigel ‘Quatermass’ Kneale about it, it looks fantastic, and in places, it’s genuinely frightening. TV really doesn’t get better than this, ever.” And the Financial Times raves, “It manages to be vibrant and fresh to appeal to a new audience while remaining utterly faithful to the spirit of the old show.”
