Clockword androids watch as the Doctor snogs a woman he met when she was a little girl. And then there’s a horse.

N017 School Reunion

N017 School Reunion

A glorious reunion with three Smiths, two tin dogs, and genetically modified gargoyles who are allergic to their own oil.

N016 Tooth and Claw

N016 Tooth and Claw

Scottish Kung-Fu monks, Queen Victoria, and a werewolf that isn’t a werewolf. Ok, then.

N015 New Earth

Doc and Rose see a familiar face each, and then square off against cat-nun-nurses and a horde of gross zombies

N014 The Christmas Invasion

N014 The Christmas Invasion

Tennant’s first proper episode as The Doctor, in which he sleeps a lot, Rose is inconsistent and aliens rock!

Rose is her own Deus Ex Machina, Jackie cashes in a dodgy favour, and we bid farewell to the 9th Doctor.

N012 Bad Wolf

The Doc escapes from the Big Brother House, Rose knows basic arithmetics, and Captain Jack has an ass-gun.

The Doctor has dinner with the enemy, Mickey wants to cheat on his girlfriend, and no one seems to object to Cardiff Castle being demolished.

N010 The Doctor Dances

Doc has no rhythm, Jack has great taste in cocktails, and aliens can’t distinguish bio matter from plastic.

N009 The Empty Child

A creepy child telekinetically controls toy monkeys and makes gas masks grow out of people’s faces, and we meet Captain Jack for the first time!
