Dr Who Planet of the Dead Boxed
Dr Who Planet of the Dead Boxed Planet of the Dead was the first of the specials that aired throughout 2009. It was also notable as being the first Dr Who Easter special. Planet of the Dead also featured guest star Michelle Ryan as Lady Christina de Souza, who acted as the companion for the episode, continuing the practice of pairing a guest actor with the Doctor during a special. Planet of the Dead was also notable for introducing the "he will knock four times" and "something is returning" arcs, something that would come up again in the following story, The Waters of Mars and ultimately conclude in the two-part serial The End of Time. From a production point of view, Planet of the Dead was the first episode of the revived series of Dr Who to be written by two people, Russell T Davies and Gareth Roberts. The most notable point about Planet of the Dead was that it was the two-hundredth Dr Who story, and as such, the bus featured in the episode was named the 200 to connote the celebration. At roughly the same time as the premiere of the 200th story, Dr Who Magazine featured a list of the most-favourite stories as voted by the fans since the first adventure, An Unearthly Child, was broadcast. Planet of the Dead clocked in at #99. Planet of the Dead was also the first episode to be filmed and broadcast in high-definition. From this episode onward, the series would remain in HD format.
