Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Luke Smith (as Thomas Knight)
Julian Bleach ...


The Doctor and his companions prepare to do battle with Davros and the Daleks who are out to destroy everything and everyone in the universe other than themselves. All seems lost when the Daleks apparently destroy the TARDIS but it's not that simple as an empowered Donna - and a new version of the Doctor - take control and face the Dalek menace head on. For one of the Doctor's companions however, there will be a heavy price to pay. Written by garykmcd

bring back the master this sucks!!!!!
16 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The third series was superb with the Mr Saxon set up. The fourth was appalling Catherine Tate was useless with a capital U, John Barrowman was boring, Billie Piper was like The Chav Avenger, Freema Whats her face had the charisma of a Dalek Plunger. As for poor old David Tennant, in my personal opinion he is still suffering from the superb OTT performance of John Simms in the previous series. The Sontarans and the Rome episodes had potential, then it went totally Pete Tong so to speak. Bringing back Davros was inevitable, but he was disappointing and had very little to do. As for the Daleks they have have become too repetitive and caricature. Instead they are like David Walliams spurting 'The computer says no' instead of exterminate. I realise Russel T Davies is trying to reach out a new audience, instead he is alienating them!! John Simms needs to come back to liven this up again now!
