Preview of Doctor Who‘s second season

by on Apr.10, 2006, under Television

Russell T. Davies is giving a preview of what’s on tap for the eagerly awaited second season (series if you’re British). Some highlights: “The Rise of the Cybermen” two-parter; Queen Victoria and a werewolf in “Tooth and Claw”; and “School Reunion”, featuring none other than Sarah Jane Smith (played by Elizabeth Sladen, who played the role in the Third and Fourth Doctor eras) and K-9.

    Everyone’s a Time Lord now!

    Let’s see…they killed off Cassandra last season, but they’re “bringing her back”…they killed off Rose’s dad last season, and they’re “bringing him back”…seems like even supporting characters now inherit the 12-resurrection cycle!

    Although I’m sure they’ll bring it off wonderfully — I adored the 1st season — I do find this disappointing in general. The first season had some genuine tension and sadness when popular characters died. It cheapens their death, and reduces tension in future seasons, to know that “nothing’s final,” and the writers can always “tap that reset button” to fix any lingering nastiness.
