This DVD is jam with amazing special effects, terryfing monsters and some very big shocks!

Turn Left- A very good episode where the Tricksters change Donna's life so she never meets the Doctor and it causes havoc everywhere

The Stolen Earth- The Earth is moved from it's original place in the universe. Can the spooky Shadow Proclimation help the Doctor and Donna find it? And what about all the bees disapearing?

Journeys End - The Doctor is regenerating whilst Davros and his army of Daleks are taking all the humans. Will Dalek Caan's prochepy come and can the Doctor be able to stop the daleks and their reality bomb.

 The best series finale yet!!!!!!

Turn Left is a brilliant episode which shows what would have happened if Donna hadn't met the Doctor. At the end of this episode it makes you feel that the finale was going to be three episodes long like series 3 as this episode left you with a brilliant cliffhanger. But, this cliffhanger was not as good as the one in The Stolen Earth when the Doctor is regenerating. The Stolen Earth and Journey's End are the two best episodes I have ever seen, brilliant writing by Russel T Davies. The last episode, Journey's End is 20 minutes longer than a normal episode making it feature length. At the end of this episode it leaves you with a clean slate for the fifth series in 2010, this is well worth bying!

 The greatest new series vanilla case release!

Season Four of the revived franchise comes to a dramatically moving, entirely enjoyable, thought provoking and immensely rewarding viewing experience with three of the finest episodes we've seen since 2005! Leading off we have this year's 'Doctor-lite' offering and for all of those doubters of Catherine Tate's abilities as a serious actress this will undoubtedly silence her critics. Taking centre stage in "Turn Left" (an intriguing premise postulating how the world would have coped had she not assisted in the Doctor's escape from the climactic finale of "The Runaway Bride") Tate's character of Donna Noble matures immeasurably as she realises that her normal shouting opinionated attitude will not help alleviate the alternate world's woes. Added to the mix you have the fully fledged return of a much more knowledgeable, experienced Rose Tyler making occasional visits throughout the story across from her parallel universe warning of an approaching all encompassing catastrophe known only as 'the darkness'. "Turn Left" adds up to an impressive intriguing offering that effectively sets the scene for the dramatic double episode finale. First part opener "The Stolen Earth" opens the mystery well blending impressive special effects action with the largest collection of regular characters we've ever seen but avoids giving away too many secrets about just what the Daleks are planning. Billed as the 'greatest season finale of all time' "Journey's End" is a dramatically powerful feature length offering which effectively blends the more immediate tensely paced Dalek Empire threat with a more thoughtful introspective critic, delivered with devastating effect by Davros, of how the Doctor has adversely affected those closest to him. To employ a (possibly appropriate) metaphor, a 'greater amount of flesh on the bones' of the Daleks main plan as devised by Davros is related here, the universal scale of which is breathtakingly awesome in its scope. On the face of it the prospect of a two part story featuring such an extensive cast of familiar returning regular characters seems a recipe for disaster however, as with the previous instalment "Journey's End" continues to effectively use these people to great effect and even manages to sling in a brief cameo appearance of K-9 for good measure without it being of noticeable detriment to the stories central plot. With "Journey's End" fluctuating between tense exciting action and moving emotive drama the resonance of certain aspects of this tale, particularly the poignant resolution of the Doctor's relationship with both Rose Tyler and Donna Noble, this makes for one of the finest offerings this revived franchise has ever offered. Highly recommended!

Russel T Davies' Doctor Who finales have something of a reputation of being a bit overblown, overwhelming and a bit silly (last year's finale saw the Doctor turned into Dobby the House elf while the Master danced around to Scissor Sisters on the ship from Captain Scarlet).
Series 4's finale is not really an exception to the rule, but give your brain a bit of a break and you might find yourself having a bit of fun watching it. Yes there is the usual overblown, unsubtle goodbye scenes that the actual plot of the episode seems to be hurriedly pushed aside to make way for, and the usual wealth of self destruct buttons all over the place, but these are minor issues when considering the wonderful dialogue from Davros (played to perfection by Julian Bleach), whose return to Who was long overdue. The preceeding episode, "The Stolen Earth", has an unmatched atmosphere of impending dread and doom thanks to the impressive scope and darkness of the episodes, as well as Murray Gold's exciting score, and whoever didn't feel an exciting shiver at seeing the army of companions together in the TARDIS at the end should just give up all hope for the revived series.
Turn Left, the preceeding episode, is also a really inventive and powerful effort from RTD, providing a fun "what if" scenario for Donna Noble, played by Catherine Tate in her best performance of the entire series. Its fun to see the Earth go to pot in the Doctor's absence

Overall its more than the usual silly, gooey eyed series closer. Its a real fun, exciting Dalek story preceeded by a staple of Sci Fi - the parallel existence. Worth the purchase by all means.

 A lot of something for the weekend!

Excellent series! The chemistry between the Dr and Donna (David and Catherine) equals that of the Dr and Rose, but in a platonic way rather than anything sexual. Great humour, great writing, great acting. Can't praise it highly enough. It was the last episode last Saturday and immediately it finished I was missing it. Will definitely be buying the series
