The Infinite Quest
Based on the brilliant and popular series, The Infinite Quest sees the Doctor and his companion Martha step into a new dimension - a cartoon one.
The pair set off on an animated adventure through space following a trail of clues across wild and wonderful alien worlds, to find the location of the legendary lost spaceship, the Infinite. However, the evil space pirate Baltazar is also searching for the ship, believing it will grant him his dearest wish - a means to destroy Earth and rule the galaxy.
Baltazar is a legendary figure, one that mothers tell their children stories about to frighten them into going to bed. The Doctor warns Baltazar to stay away from Earth. It is, however, too late. Confronting Baltazar with only a spoon, the Doctor tricks him into releasing a fungus that destroys his metal ship and frees his enslaved metal bird Caw, who carries Baltazar away to prison.
Many years later, the Doctor and Martha visit Caw on his home planet. As a way of saying thank you to both of them, Caw gives Martha a brooch and the Doctor a datachip, telling him that it is one of four. Collecting the remaining three will reveal the location of the Infinite, a mythical spaceship that will grant the one who commands it their heart's desire. To the Doctor, the Infinite is nothing but a fairy story but Caw tells him that there is one who disagrees with him - Baltazar. Last heard of as a prisoner on the ice planet Volag-Noc, Caw reveals that not only has Baltazar escaped but that he has a copy of the first datachip. Concerned that Earth will be Baltazar's target should he find the Infinite, the Doctor and Martha set off on a quest to find the other datachips. And to find the Infinite, before Baltazar...
With spectacular animation, this vibrant cartoon is as gripping as any usual episode of Doctor Who.

"I think it may be the single best piece of family-oriented entertainment BBC has broadcast in its entire history. It's clever, it's funny, it's exciting, it's moving, it's got shades of Nigel 'Quatermass' Kneale about it, it looks fantastic, and in places it's genuinely frightening. TV really doesn't get better than this, ever." -Guardian
"The new show looks better than anyone dared to hope. Fast, funny, scary and beautifully acted, it manages to be vibrant and fresh to appeal to a new audience while remaining utterly faithful to the spirit of the old show." -Financial Times
"...the BBC haven't put a foot wrong, and have even improved on the original. There are clever, funny, and challenging scripts here, fine ensemble acting and direction, Ron Grainer's hypnotic theme tune ... and a backlit Billie Piper." -London Evening Standard
"I was immediately hooked ... the revival proved to be nothing less than a technical and theatrical triumph ... Eccleston makes a marvellous Doctor ... Rose Tyler, played with tremendous panache by Billie Piper." -Daily Mail
"I enjoyed it enormously ... Christopher Eccleston brings new depth and intensity to the Time Lord, Billie Piper's Rose is sweet, feisty and likeable..." -Observer
"It's been a long time coming, but it's worth the wait." -Daily Mail
"Tennant is inspired casting - mildly dotty but with a hint of danger." -Independent
"The new series of Doctor Who gets off to a sensational start ... The rapport between the Doctor and Rose is stronger than ever ... Russell T. Davies's script is a masterpiece of its kind - exciting, intelligent and imaginative; a little bit scary and very, very funny. The special effects are wondrous and the acting is gloriously camp; it ought to delight everyone between the ages of five and ninety." -David Chater, The Times
"Great, imaginative television with perfect casting." -The Times
"It's scary sci-fi, camp humour and warm family viewing all in one... and it's wonderful." -Guardian
"David Tennant's funny, quirky and mischievous - and the atmosphere between him and sidekick Rose just fizzes with the clever chemistry of a 1930s screwball comedy." -Daily Express
"Anyone who thinks that television no longer unites the nation should peer into living rooms across the country at 7.15pm tonight. The fools' lantern will be flickering, but you may not see anyone in front of the screen. Children and adults alike will be cowering behind sofas as the Tardis heaves into view accompanied by a new Doctor Who and that familiar, if slightly tweaked, whoosh of a tune. The outpouring of affection for the series, with the 10th incarnation of the Doctor played by Casanova star David Tennant, is far from nostalgia for the shaky sets and stripy scarves of the Tom Baker golden era. Viewers have returned ... because the reinvigorated franchise is witty and warm, as well as scary. It vaporises any suggestion the good Doctor is not the man he used to be. Under Russell T Davis's writing, he is much, much better. The series is more subtle and satirical than of old ... But the up-to-date Doctor benefits too from the rich heritage of past series, fondly pored over by Whovians. As Davis has pointed out, children enjoy the mythology that comes with the Doctor. And so parents chuntering on about K9 and the Cybermen do not cause offspring to roll their eyeballs but only encourage further forays from the safety of the sofa." -Guardian Leader Pages
"[Russell T] Davies's stories are equal parts waggish, decadent and penetrating, full of Broadway-style wordplay and moral outrage against the modern world, the whole mad carnival serenaded by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales." -James Saynor, Sunday Telegraph
"Oh, but this is fantastic - it's Alien plus The Matrix divided by The Exorcist." -Ali Catterall, Guardian
"Though Rose is a hard act to follow, she [Freema Ageyman] does with great panache in this absolutely corking series opener" Daily Mail
"The Doctor's new Rose blossoms ... As Martha, Freema Agyeman hit the ground running." The Times
"... the most thrilling, intelligent piece of family entertainment around." Jim Shelley, Daily Mirror
"... the finest television drama in recent memory ... three cheers for Russell T Davies and his senior henchmen, Messrs Moffatt and Cornell. Their achievement has been not just to resurrect an old franchise, but to make it thrilling both for children who had never before seen a Tardis, and for their parents who had." Sam Leith, Daily Telegraph
"The second half of this series has been a remarkable demonstration of what is possible in drama for the family: a mind-bending complexity of the extended story centred on a giant library; the holiday that turned into a nightmare, with a weird woman spooking the Doctor by echoing everything he said; the sci-fi version of Sliding Doors' premise in the Turn Left episode, switching Donna into an alternative universe facing apocalypse; and the two-part finale concluding tonight, a Whovian Götterdämmerung..."John Dugdale, Sunday Times
"There is so much right about the new Doctor ... The casting is impressive. The show's special effects are terrific." The Times
"...the series has re-created a sense of Saturday night telly as communal, family-centred, mainly wholesome entertainment. Some critics complain that it is too frightening for young minds, but if it was less scary our children would not insist that we parents watched it with them. The terror factor gels the family." Quentin Letts, Daily Mail
"The antithesis of a Lara Croft-style heroine, [Donna] cannot fight or run and has no special expertise. But she does have a stroppy humanity that acts as a corrective to the Doctor's manic brilliance and forces him to question his abstract rules." Sunday Times
"Catherine Tate brought plenty of laughs to Saturday's Doctor Who - but if you were worried there's too much comedy and not enough sci-fi, don't worry, it's all part of the masterplan... Can't wait." Daily Mirror
"Dr Who always provides an engrossing romp, with enough layers and asides to keep parents and kids entertained. In this episode, the show is well and truly stolen by the 6in Adipose aliens themselves. As cute as the Pillsbury dough boy and apparently as ticklish, they'll win over the most cynical viewer - a bit like the show itself." Neil Midgley, Daily Telegraph
"...we are glad to report that series four is more than worth the wait. The excitement builds right from the off with a souped up theme tune - an orchestral take on the much loved classic melody. The lush strings are a fitting opener to the touching first episode, Partners In Crime." Colin Robertson, Sun
"David Tennant is back as the gallivanting Gallifreyan, and boy, have we missed him! And while we didn't think the show could get any better, it has, thanks to Catherine Tate's reappearance as Donna Noble." News of the World
"The scripts are great, production values are still high, David Tennant is brilliant..."David Stephenson, Express on Sunday
"...the new series looks set to be out of this world ... Landing back on to Earth with a supersonic bump, DW was sharp, touching and witty - perfect family viewing ... Catherine Tate is David Tennant's latest aide, bringing with her experience, age and excellent comic timing ... Gone is the annoying screeching in the Dr Who Christmas special and her sketch-show creations, although there is a glimmer of Derek ‘How Very Dare You' Faye and ‘Am I Bovvered' Lauren. But Tate proves herself a talented and versatile actress. Watching Tate and Tennant miming at each other across a room as they spot each other again was telly gold." Jon Wise, People
"Doctor Who often hits like Naomi Campbell." Garry Bushell, Daily Star
