The second series of British science fiction programme Doctor Who began on 25 December 2005 with the Christmas special "The Christmas Invasion". Following the special, a regular series of thirteen episodes was broadcast, starting with "New Earth" on 15 April 2006. In addition, two short special episodes were produced; a Children in Need special and an interactive episode, as well as 13 TARDISODEs. It is the second series of the revival of the show, and the twenty-eighth season overall.
This is the first series to feature David Tennant as the tenth incarnation of the Doctor, an alien Time Lord who travels through time and space in his TARDIS, which appears to be a British police box on the outside. He continues to travel with his companion Rose Tyler (Billie Piper), with whom he has grown increasingly attached. They also briefly travel with Rose's boyfriend Mickey Smith (Noel Clarke), and Camille Coduri reprises her role as Rose's mother Jackie. The series is connected by a loose story arc consisting of the recurring word "Torchwood". This is also the first series to be preceded by a Christmas special, which was commissioned to see how well the show could do at Christmas. The success of "The Christmas Invasion" led to the Christmas special becoming an annual tradition.

|Rose and the newly-regenerated Tenth Doctor return to her mother Jackie's flat, where Rose, Jackie, and Rose's former boyfriend Mickey Smith carry him inside to rest. When out shopping, Rose and Mickey are attacked by Santa robots; the Doctor theorises that energy from his regeneration has lured them here. Prime Minister Harriet Jones is threatened by the leader of the Sycorax to give them half of the Earth's population as slaves; Harriet tries to negotiate and is teleported on their ship. Rose, Mickey, and Jackie drag the Doctor onto the TARDIS, but the TARDIS is detected by the Sycorax and they transport it to their ship, with Rose, Mickey, and the Doctor inside. After the Doctor has fully recovered, he challenges the Sycorax leader to a sword fight for the future of the Earth, which he eventually wins. However, the Sycorax ship is destroyed against the Doctor's wishes by Harriet Jones, who had called Torchwood on the matter.|

|The Doctor and Rose go to New Earth, the planet which humanity inhabited after the Earth's destruction by the Sun.[N 1] They go into a luxury hospital in New New York, where Rose meets the villain Cassandra again. Cassandra possesses Rose's body as she is in need of one. The Doctor and Cassandra discover that the hospital holds hundreds of artificially-grown humans that have been infected with diseases so the Sisters of Plenitude can find their cures. Cassandra releases several of the humans as a distraction, but they release others and a zombie-like attack begins. The Doctor sprays the infected humans with an intravenous solution using a disinfectant shower, curing them. The Doctor orders Cassandra out of Rose and she transfers her consciousness to her servant Chip, but his cloned body fails and Cassandra accepts her death.|

|The Doctor and Rose go to Scotland in 1879, where Queen Victoria invites them to the Torchwood Estate. Unknown to them, the estate has been captured by a group of monks who have brought a werewolf in hopes to infect Queen Victoria and establish an "Empire of the Wolf". The Doctor notices the trap and tries to shield himself, Victoria, and Rose from the werewolf. He learns that the estate was designed as a trap for the werewolf as it contains a large telescope which, with Victoria's Koh-i-Noor diamond and full moonlight, can kill the werewolf. Though they save her, Queen Victoria is unnerved by the Doctor and Rose's modern eccentricities and founds the Torchwood Institute to defend Britain from further alien attacks.|

|The Doctor works undercover as a teacher in a school which Mickey believes is suspicious. Rose, working as a dinner lady, notices the cafeteria's chips have an adverse effect on other members of the kitchen staff, while the Doctor notes the chips seem to make the students more intelligent. The success of headmaster Mr Finch has aroused media attention; investigative journalist and the Doctor's former companion Sarah Jane Smith arrives at the school and discovers the TARDIS. She and her robotic dog K9 join up with the Doctor, Rose, and Mickey and they discover that the teachers are actually Krillitanes and the chips are coated with Krillitane oil, intended to make the children smart enough so they can decode the "Skasis Paradigm", a theory of everything, which will give the Krillitanes full control of time and space. The Doctor refuses to join the Krillitanes and evacuates the children, after which K9 detonates the container of the chip oil which destroys the Krillitanes, the school, and K9. Sarah Jane declines the Doctor's offer to travel with him and suggests that Mickey do so instead, and the Doctor gives her a brand new model of K9.|

|The Doctor, Rose, and Mickey arrive on an abandoned spaceship which contains several "time windows" into the life of Madame de Pompadour, known as "Reinette". The Doctor first enters her bedroom in Paris through an 18th-century fireplace when she is seven years old and saves her from a clockwork man which has hidden under her bed. On the ship, the Doctor and his companions discover more time windows into Reinette's life in 18th-century Versailles and see that the clockwork droids continue stalking her, but do not consider her "complete". The Doctor discovers that the droids murdered the ship's human crew and recycled some of their organs for use in the ship but still needs Reinette's brain to be fully functional. The brain must be 37 years old, the age of the ship; the ship is actually named after Madame de Pompadour. The Doctor manages to arrive at some point after her 37th birthday and save her from the droids, who shut down because they have no way of returning to their ship.|
|172a||5||"Rise of the Cybermen"||Graeme Harper||Tom MacRae||13 May 2006||2.5||9.22||86|
|A problem causes the Doctor, Rose, and Mickey to reach a parallel universe, with no way of getting back home for 24 hours. In the parallel universe, most of humanity wears EarPods that feed information directly into the wearer's brain and Rose's father Pete is still alive. The EarPods are designed by John Lumic, who is trying to give them an "upgrade" which will ultimately turn the humans into Cybermen. Though he has not received permission to do this, he has been abducting and converting numerous homeless people. Mickey is mistaken for his parallel universe self Ricky and is taken by Jake Simmonds, a member of a gang called the "Preachers" who are aware of the dangers of the EarPods. Cybermen begin attacking at the parallel universe Jackie's birthday party, at which the Doctor and Rose are posing as waiters. They, along with Pete, escape and run into Mickey and the Preachers, but the Cybermen close in on them.|
|172b||6||"The Age of Steel"||Graeme Harper||Tom MacRae||20 May 2006||2.6||7.63||86|
|Escaping from the Cybermen, the group go to Battersea Power Station, where Lumic uses a transmitter to control London's EarPod-wearing population and send them to be converted into Cybermen. On the way, Ricky is killed by the Cybermen. The group splits into three smaller groups to stop the conversion. Eventually, Mrs Moore is killed and the Doctor, Rose and Pete are captured by the Cybermen and taken to Lumic, who has become the Cyber Controller. Mickey and Jake disable the transmitter on the zeppelin, freeing the humans who had not been converted. Mickey hacks Lumic's database to find the code to cancel every Cyberman's emotional inhibitor and sends it to Rose's phone; the Doctor plugs the phone into the computer systems which changes the signal and sends the Cybermen into despair. They escape the exploding factory on the zeppelin and Pete cuts the ladder Lumic is climbing up, sending him to his death. Mickey decides to stay and help fix the parallel universe with Jake and take care of Ricky's grandmother, as he understands Rose prefers the Doctor.|
|173||7||"The Idiot's Lantern"||Euros Lyn||Mark Gatiss||27 May 2006||2.7||6.76||84|
|The Doctor and Rose land in London in 1953 on the day before Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. The Doctor befriends teenager Tommy Connolly, whose grandmother is hidden because she lacks any facial features and has no brain activity, a phenomenon that is common with those who have purchased television sets sold cheap for the coronation from Magpie Electricals, owned by Mr Magpie. Rose, investigating the shop, finds that Mr Magpie is under the influence of an entity known as "the Wire", a fugitive who has converted herself to an electrical form and is using the televisions and hopefully the upcoming coronation to consume enough minds to rebuild its body; she takes Rose's face as well. In discovery of this the Doctor is outraged and foils the Wire's plan with a device he creates, and those whose minds and faces were consumed are returned and London can safely watch the coronation.|
|174a||8||"The Impossible Planet"||James Strong||Matt Jones||3 June 2006||2.8||6.32||85|
|The Doctor and Rose arrive on a base on a planet which is impossibly orbiting a black hole. The crew of the base, who are there on an expedition to drill to the middle of the planet, is led by Captain Zachary Cross Flane. A race of aliens known as the Ood serve them. A quake strikes the planet, causing several sections of the base, including the one where the TARDIS was, to fall into the planet. As the drill nears the planet's centre, the Ood begin foretelling the awakening of a "Beast", which possesses archaeologist Toby Zed and later the Ood. The drilling finishes, and the Doctor offers to go with Ida Scott to the depths of the planet, where they discover a disc with unreadable markings found on the base and the possessed Toby's face. The Doctor believes the disc to be a door, and as it begins to open the possessed Toby tells Rose that the planet has begun to fall into the black hole and the voice of the Beast announces that he is free.|
|174b||9||"The Satan Pit"||James Strong||Matt Jones||10 June 2006||2.9||6.08||86|
|Ida and the Doctor investigate the door and Rose and the other members of the crew witness a force leaving Toby's body and assume that he is no longer possessed. The Doctor descends into the dark pit and the Beast speaks to him, revealing he is the epitome of evil of several religions and has been sealed inside the planet, but is seeking to escape. The Doctor runs out of rope and believes he can survive the drop and falls, the news of which distresses Rose. Most of the crew and Rose escape from the Ood and board and launch an escape rocket. The Doctor discovers he has survived the crash and finds the physical form of the Beast. The Doctor realises his consciousness has managed to escape. Having faith in Rose, the Doctor triggers the sequence for the Beast and the planet to fall into the black hole, but as the Beast's consciousness is inside Toby the rocket begins to pull toward the black hole. Rose realises this and releases Toby from the rocket, and the Doctor finds the TARDIS in the pit and uses it to rescue Rose.|
|175||10||"Love & Monsters"||Dan Zeff||Russell T Davies||17 June 2006||2.10||6.66||76|
|Elton Pope, Ursula, and three other members who have had encounters with the Doctor, form a group called LINDA to discuss these encounters, but their meetings soon become more social. One day a man known as Victor Kennedy interrupts one of the group's meetings and reinvigorates LINDA's purpose to locate the Doctor. Later, two members of the group mysteriously go missing, and one day Ursula and Elton return to the meeting room to retrieve Ursula's phone. There Kennedy reveals himself to be an Abzorbaloff, who has absorbed the other three LINDA members. Ursula receives the same fate and the Abzorbaloff corners Elton, but the TARDIS appears and the Doctor discovers the Abzorbaloff's cane is a field generator and Elton breaks it, destroying the creature. The Doctor manages to preserve Ursula in a paving slab, which Elton takes home.|
|176||11||"Fear Her"||Euros Lyn||Matthew Graham||24 June 2006||2.11||7.14||83|
|The Doctor and Rose arrive in a London neighbourhood just prior to the start of the 2012 Olympic Games. Children have been disappearing and the Doctor and Rose discover the source is a 12-year-old girl named Chloe Webber, who can cause people to disappear by drawing them. The Doctor finds that she is possessed by an Isolus, an alien life form that has crashed on Earth and can relate to Chloe's loneliness. For the Isolus to leave Chloe's body, they must find the Isolus' pod and give it power; Rose finds it under just-poured tar in the street and is able to power it by throwing it into the Olympic Torch as it comes by the street, giving the pod heat and emotional strength. As the missing children reappear, the demon-like drawing of Chloe's violent and dead father comes to life, but Chloe's mother calms Chloe's fears. The Isolus peacefully leaves Chloe's body.|
|177a||12||"Army of Ghosts"||Graeme Harper||Russell T Davies||1 July 2006||2.12||8.19||86|
|The Doctor and Rose visit Jackie and learn that for a few months the Earth has experienced silhouettes which appear at a certain time each day around the world. The public have accepted these as ghosts. However, the Doctor thinks they are the impressions of something forcing its way into the universe and tracks the source to the headquarters of a secret organisation known as Torchwood, hidden in Canary Wharf. Torchwood's director Yvonne Hartman reveals that the ghosts are a result of a breach in the universe which a spherical "void ship", kept at Torchwood, has arrived. Three employees of Torchwood are manipulated to open the breach, which breaks down and causes millions of the ghosts to appear worldwide and shift into their true form of the Cybermen from the parallel universe. However, the Cybermen merely followed the void ship through the breach, and the ship is revealed to contain four Daleks.|
|177b||13||"Doomsday"||Graeme Harper||Russell T Davies||8 July 2006||2.13||8.22||89|
|The four Daleks, later identified as the Cult of Skaro, have brought a device known as the Genesis Ark through the breach and declare war on the Cybermen and the two races begin fighting worldwide. Meanwhile, the Doctor has discovered that Jake Simmonds, Pete Tyler, and Mickey – who masqueraded as a Torchwood employee and is with Rose and the Daleks – have been able to travel between the universes. The Cult of Skaro is keeping Rose and Mickey alive because they, being time travellers, would activate the Genesis Ark, which the Daleks are incapable of as it is stolen Time Lord technology. The Doctor plans to open the breach, which will pull in anyone who has crossed the Void including the Daleks, Cybermen, and Rose's family, and then close the breach. Rose refuses to reside in the parallel universe and stays to help the Doctor, but she is unable to hold on and becomes marooned in the parallel universe. The Doctor is able to transmit his image through one of the final breaches, and the two share a tearful goodbye before a mysterious woman in a wedding dress appears in the TARDIS.[N 2]|
Two mini-episodes were also recorded: "Doctor Who: Children in Need" was produced for the 2005 Children in Need appeal, and interactive episode "Attack of the Graske" was recorded for digital television following the broadcast of "The Christmas Invasion". 13 TARDISODEs were also produced to serve as prequels to each episode. All episodes were filmed as part of the second series' production cycle.

Series two was David Tennant's first in the role of the Doctor after he was cast on 28 April 2005. Following his brief appearance in the closing moments of "The Parting of the Ways" he was next seen in the Children in Need special, broadcast on 18 November 2005. "The Christmas Invasion", broadcast one month later, marked his first full episode.
Billie Piper continued her role as companion Rose Tyler, for her second and final series, Noel Clarke's character Mickey Smith, a recurring guest character during the first series, featured in several episodes.
Camille Coduri continued to guest in the series as recurring character Jackie Tyler. Shaun Dingwall returned for several episodes as Pete Tyler and Penelope Wilton reprised her role as Harriet Jones for the Christmas special. Elisabeth Sladen featured in the episode "School Reunion", returning to the character of Sarah Jane Smith, companion of the Third and Fourth Doctors. John Leeson also featured in this episode as the voice of K9.
Other guest stars included Adam Garcia and Daniel Evans in "The Christmas Invasion", Zoë Wanamaker, Sean Gallagher, Anna Hope, and Adjoa Andoh in "New Earth", Pauline Collins in "Tooth and Claw", Anthony Head in "School Reunion", Sophia Myles in "The Girl in the Fireplace", Roger Lloyd-Pack, Andrew Hayden-Smith, Helen Griffin, and Don Warrington in "Rise of the Cybermen" / "The Age of Steel", Maureen Lipman, Jamie Foreman, Rory Jennings, and Margaret John in "The Idiot's Lantern", Danny Webb, Shaun Parkes, Claire Rushbrook, and Will Thorp in "The Impossible Planet" / "The Satan Pit", Marc Warren, Peter Kay, Shirley Henderson, Simon Greenall, Moya Brady, and Kathryn Drysdale in "Love & Monsters", Nina Sosanya in "Fear Her", Tracy-Ann Oberman, Raji James, Barbara Windsor, Derek Acorah, Alistair Appleton, and Trisha Goddard in "Army of Ghosts" / "Doomsday", and Freema Agyeman, who returned to co-star as Martha Jones the next year.
Following the success of the opening episode of the first series, the BBC announced that Doctor Who had been recommissioned for both a second series and a Christmas special on 30 March 2005. Recording for the Christmas special began on 23 July 2005, with production on the series itself beginning on 1 August 2005 and concluding on 31 March 2006.
New writers for the show included Toby Whithouse, creator of the Channel 4 drama No Angels, Tom MacRae, creator of Sky One's Mile High, Matt Jones, also a prolific script editor and producer, and Matthew Graham, co-creator of the BBC science fiction series Life on Mars. Previous writers Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Russell T Davies all contributed to the series, with Davies continuing to act as head writer and executive producer. Stephen Fry was due to write episode 11 but was forced to withdraw as he could not complete the script in time so Russell T. Davies hired Matthew Graham to write Fear Her. Phil Collinson produced all episodes, with Julie Gardner as executive producer. The series was directed by James Hawes, Euros Lyn, James Strong, Dan Zeff and Graeme Harper, who had directed episodes of the programme's original run. The series is primarily set on Earth (though not as much as the first series was) due to the cost involved in creating another planet, according to Davies. Only two stories are set on another planet.
The second series encompassed a loose story arc based around the word "Torchwood", which first appeared in the 2005 episode "Bad Wolf". The mythology of Torchwood is built across the series; in "The Christmas Invasion" it is revealed to be a secret organisation which possesses alien technology, and its establishment is shown in "Tooth and Claw". Contemporary Torchwood is finally visited by the Doctor and Rose in "Army of Ghosts"/"Doomsday", at which point it is situated within London's Canary Wharf and accidentally allows the invasion of the Cybermen and, subsequently, the Daleks. The Doctor and Rose are forcibly separated by these events, which lead to Rose's entrapment within a parallel universe.
The Doctor and Rose are indirectly responsible for their separation; their enjoyment of the events of "Tooth and Claw" horrifies Queen Victoria and leads to the establishment of Torchwood. Over a century later, the institute's foolish actions are resolved at the expense of the Doctor and Rose's companionship. "It's deliberate when that happens [The Doctor and Rose's arrogance]", said head writer Russell T Davies, "and they do pay the price. In "Tooth and Claw", they set up the very thing — Torchwood — that separates them in the end. It's sort of their own fault."
Murray Gold returned to compose the music for the second series. Ben Foster orchestrated the music, unlike in the first series, which had used synthesised music.
Production blocks were arranged as follows:
|1||"The Christmas Invasion"||James Hawes||Russell T Davies||Phil Collinson||2X|
|"School Reunion"||Toby Whithouse||2.3|
|"New Earth"||Russell T Davies||2.1|

|5||"The Impossible Planet"||James Strong||Matt Jones||2.8|
|"The Satan Pit"||2.9|
|6||"Love & Monsters"||Dan Zeff||Russell T Davies||2.10|
The second series premiered on 15 April 2006 with "New Earth", and concluded after 13 episodes on 8 July 2006 with "Doomsday". Doctor Who Confidential also aired alongside each episode of the series, continuing on from the previous series.
A Children in Need special and an interactive episode, entitled "Attack of the Graske", were both produced alongside the series. A series of 13 TARDISODEs were also produced. These mini-episodes (approximately 60 seconds in length) served as prequels to each forthcoming episode, and were available for download to mobile phones and viewable at the official Doctor Who website. The TARDISODEs were recorded intermittently from 31 January to 8 April 2006.

This section is transcluded from Doctor Who (series 1). (edit | history)
Selected pieces of score from the first series, second series and "The Runaway Bride", as composed by Murray Gold, were released on 4 December 2006 by Silva Screen Records. On 19 August 2013, the soundtrack was released on 12" Vinyl as a limited edition with only 500 copies. The cues from the first series were re-recorded by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the original music having been synthesised. 
Murray Gold's arrangement of the main theme featured samples from the 1963 original with further elements added: an orchestral sound of low horns, strings and percussion and part of the Dalek ray-gun and TARDIS materialisation sound effects. Included on the album are two versions of the theme: the 44-second opening version, as arranged by Gold, and a longer arrangement that includes the middle eight, after Gold omitted the "middle eight" from both the opening and closing credits. Gold has said that his interpretation was driven by the title visual sequence he was given to work around. Often erroneously cited as being the same as the end credits version, this second version is in fact a new arrangement and recording.
