Doctor Who TV Show
A review of all the episides of the TV show Doctor Who. These are the special episodes with David Tennant as The Doctor.
Last Episodes with David Tennant
He had already completed three years on the show. Series 2, Series 3 and Series 4. The BBC wanted to keep the actor for one more year so an agreement was made that he would only make five episodes in his last series. Doctor Who: The Complete Specials DVD covers these last five episodes
The Episodes on the DVD are:
- The Next Doctor was the Christmas Special in 2009.
- Planet of the Dead was shown as an Easter Special in 2009.
- The Waters of Mars was shown in September of 2009
- The End of Time Parts 1 and 2.
The last two episodes were shown over Christmas and New Year of 2009.In the episode The End of Time part 2 David Tennant as Doctor Who is killed and regenerates as Doctor Who played by Matt Smith. Also included are many other special features:

Doctor Who Deleted Scenes
Wonderful scenes from the show that had to be cut because of time restrictions. Some of these are just awesome. It is a shame they could not have been included in the TV series. There are quite a few of these deleted scenes for you to enjoy.
David Tennant Video Diary
The Final Days: I love David Tennant’s Video Diary and even more poignant because it was his last series. David Tennant always produces interesting video diaries of behind the scenes as he spends his time making the series.
You get to see David Tennant at home and in the BBC studios and how he makes some of the scenes of Doctor Who.
English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired
The first actor to play The Doctor was William Hartnell. The show was very popular and when he decided to leave the writers of Doctor Who came up with a very clever idea so that they could continue making the Doctor Who series.
As a way of replacing the actor they came up with the idea that because The Doctor was an alien from the planet Gallifrey his people were able to regenerate into another human body if they were about to die. He would have slight character changes because he had a new body but The Doctor would keep all the memories of his previous regenerations.
So he would be in a different human body but would be still The Doctor. This way the Doctor Who TV series could continue. And it certainly did continue for another twenty six years until 1989. Seven different actors played The Doctor during this time.

Hello Cagsil, yes the old B/W series of Doctor Who was good too and I watched them over many years starting when I was only eight. This new series began in 2005 and the BBC has done the show proud. Great actors, stories and special effects.
Hello billyaustindillon, I aggree with you that the
Doctor Who DVD Box set is the perfect Christmas gift because then fans can watch the series whenever they want. And the extra stuff that comes with the DVD Box Set is amazing.

Hey Viking, very nicely done. I remember watching the original version and didn't get into much of the newest or latest version. However, you have some great still shots of the episodes and a great looking hub. Keep up the good work. :)

Got it, you love the show and this one is a good gift set, HUH, It sounds very good TV series to me, Maita
L M Reid (author) from Ireland on August 26, 2010:
Lol Yes I have watched every episode available too. Its a shame when the actor moves on and the viewers have the get used to a new face. But the show is written so well that we soon forget about the previous actor and concentrate on the character of Doctor Who.
I hear it is getting big in the states these last few years too

I grew up watching Doctor Who with my Grandmother, even at a young age, I noticed that the main character seemed to change every time I watched it!
Its cool to find know why this was happening.
