Synopsis


Donna Noble (Catherine Tate), the bride who inexplicably materialized on the TARDIS at the end of the second season's emotional finale, returns in the fourth season and joins the Doctor (David Tennant) for new adventures across the space-time continuum. Donna, who had declined the Doctor's offer to be his next companion at the end of The Runaway Bride special, finds herself regretting that decision and takes to probing strange happenings in the hope of reconnecting with the Time Lord, which she does when each independently investigates a company that markets a diet pill with the ominous slogan, "The fat just walks away." From there, Donna and the Doctor go to ancient Pompeii, just ahead of what the Doctor calls Volcano Day, where they uncover a sinister plot that makes the historic eruption of Mount Vesuvius seem benign in comparison. The pair then take a trip far into the future, where they become involved in the liberation of a subservient race called the Ood, who return the favor with a cryptic warning about the Doctor's future. Former companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) finds herself compelled to call upon the Doctor when old foes, the Sontarans, turn up to tamper with Earth's atmosphere. Having already met William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens in previous seasons, the Time Lord and his companion continue the tradition of hobnobbing with literary giants by helping the celebrated novelist Agatha Christie (Fenella Woolgar) solve a murder mystery. Later in the season, strange visitations from a lost friend herald a truly Earth-moving event that rallies the Doctor's allies for an epic face-off against old enemies. ~ Michael Chant

    A great fourth series

    I loved this year's series! Donna Noble (Catherine Tate) added a new element to the series that we really haven't seen before. She's just a mate of the Doctor's and she's really human. Everything she does she has the most natural reaction to, which is great in a crazy show like this one. All the episodes continued to get better. Just when you think they can't do anything better, they bring in episodes like "Silence in the Library" and "Forest of the Dead", probably some of the best ever. The series finale was incredible. The Doctor's TARDIS was chucked full of his companions and it made for one of the best series finales ever. I loved this year and would definitely recommend it!

    Doctor Who is one of the best Sci-Fi shows ever created. The show stays very fresh by changing the lead actor and actress every so often. Series 4 introduced Donna. Although she might not be the most attractive of the Doctor's companions. She has a fire in her she puts the Doctor in his place and challenges him more than any other companion. This is a great series

    Best Buy is the only store in Wichita that has a selection of old movies and TV shows. The staff always patiently help me find them and are always happy to order them to be sent to my house. Where do you find a better combination than that?

    This Dr Who is not your typical alien show. He comes across Oods, Sontarans, Vashta Nirvanas and other beings that try to invade places not there own. His companion Donna Noble leaves quite an impression.

    I do like many things about this season. I am not a fan of the character of Donna - the Doctor's newwest companion. Her need for attention is distracting. However, the great storylines will keep you watching.
