Season 2

Doctor Who is a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC which depicts the adventures of a mysterious time-traveller known as "the Doctor" who travels in his time ship, the TARDIS, which appears from the exterior to be a blue police phone box.

With his companions, he explores time and space, solving problems and righting wrongs.

The programme originally ran from 1963-1989. A television film was made in 1996 as a backdoor pilot for a new series (which never entered production), and the programme was successfully relaunched in 2005, produced in-house by BBC Wales.

Doctor Who premiered in South Africa on BBC Prime (which became BBC Entertainment in September 2008) on Saturday 1 September 2007, at 19h00. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 2 premiered on BBC Entertainment on Sunday 14 September 2008, at 18h40. It was preceded by the one-hour special The Christmas Invasion on Sunday 7 September.

There are 13 episodes in the second season.

Season 2

David Tennant steps into the role of Doctor Who, becoming the tenth incarnation of the Time Lord in the second season of Russell T Davies' revival of the international TV hit.

The new season is full of new thrills, laughs, new heartbreak and some terrifying new monsters.

At the end of the first season, Rose and the Doctor defeated the Daleks and saved the Earth – but at a cost. The Doctor that Rose had grown to love has gone. Can she trust a man with a new face?

Together, they travel back in time to the Highlands of Scotland to find Queen Victoria confronted by a terrifying werewolf, and back further still, to 18th Century France where lethal Clockwork Androids stalk Versailles.

In the future, an evil race of Cat Nurses hide a sinister secret at the heart of their hospital, and the human race are threatened by a remorseless silver army of emotionless Cybermen.

Throughout their adventures in time and space, the Doctor and Rose have stood shoulder to shoulder. But as the season builds to a dramatic climax, could their partnership be tragically ended...?
