It's a kind of shadow of sorts, a loneliness. Expand

I like how he is much more dark, conflicted and lonely than other Doctors before him. I mean if you were immortal but your whole race was dead and you went on traveling all of space and time only to know that everyone you ever love is mortal and only around for a short time I think it would at that kind of darkness to you. David Tennant is definitely one of the best, if not the best Doctor. As always the stories were great and the special effects were great too. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. A very good season of Doctor Who. Probably better than the first, in some ways. Russel T. Davies isn't the best writer / producer, but he get's it done. The one thing I didn't like about this season was the romance between The Doctor and Rose. I had a very hard time believing their romance. All in all, though, I'd say it was pretty good, and Tennent gives an excellent performance. Expand

I think he's more amusing when he's whacky and more compelling when he's serious. Good match for the role! This season definitely has some better character development than the first season, and many of the individual episodes are more interesting. My only major complaint is that, as with the first season, there isn't much of a story arc. Lots of things happen, but there doesn't seem to be much point in the end. Definitely a great show and well worth watching, but I think it gets better with later seasons. Expand

David Tennant handles the reins of the DoctorDoctor Who continues its run with great episodes, developed characters and a lot of emotion. David Tennant handles the reins of the Doctor very well and so does Billie Piper as Rose Tyler. However, its main problem is its weak antagonists. Few are memorable, the rest are either funny or stupid. Expand

    Few viewers would deny that David Tennant makes for an excellent Doctor and his on-screen chemistry with companion Rose Tyler (Billie Piper)Few viewers would deny that David Tennant makes for an excellent Doctor and his on-screen chemistry with companion Rose Tyler (Billie Piper) is nothing short of excellent. Despite this I found my interest did begin to wane on occasions during this ‘second’ season.

    This was in large part due to the fact that each episode is almost entirely self-contained meaning there is little in terms of ongoing storylines to bring me back episode after episode in the way that other sci-fi shows like the Battlestar Galactica did. When the show is at its best, such as in the episode ‘The Girl in the Fireplace’, this is not really a problem but as was the case with season one the quality can vary greatly from week to week and so some episodes can be quite dull and a bit of a chore to sit through.

Tennant is a solid actor but he really has no defining moments this season outside of the end of the christmas special. The rest of the cast was alright, No complaints. The story telling was far better this season as well. The biggest complaint I have though is all the secondary characters, such as the protagonist and antagonist for the episode(s), getting far more screen time and lines then the doctor and his companion. I think that sort of sucks because it killed any chance for Tennant to really shine.

    It's such an unsatisfying season and I really did not like it one bit.
