Series 2 launches with more of the tone that I expected of the War Doctor than was featured in the first series. The plot focuses on a weapon of mass destruction capable of removing entire civilizations from history and an alliance with the Technomancers, an ancient race that blends magic and technology seamlessly together. All of this feeds directly into some of Gallifrey's lore and mystique of the dark times when Time Lords suppressed and wiped out races to secure their place as masters of time. It also gives plenty of space for Hurt's incarnation to toe the line of what his race is capable of doing in the name of war. There's a great exploration of morality in a difficult time and expression of how the Doctor can be a warrior but avoid being a soldier; he is no dog to blindly follow orders even if he is willing to break his own code to achieve a greater good. This is an excellent story on its own and a strong start to the second series.

An excellent start to the second box set. I preferred this story to all of those in the previous release. Dorney once again delivers and John Hurt seems more comfortable in the role now.

This one kicks the story complexity up a notch or two from the first War Doctor set and quite right too. Love the technomancer business going on in this and to throw David Warner in there with John Hurt and Jacqueline Pearce, Brillitant! I'd give this a 10+ for acting if I could.

Legion of the Lost begins by pushing us into new territory as the Doctor thwarts the Time Lord's attempts to acquire the Annihlator, a weapon held by the Daleks and wanted by the Time Lords only to discover the Time Lords are working on something far more ambitious-teaming up with a group of wizards with an advanced science that operates like magic.

The story brims with brilliant concepts and intriguing ideas and great moral dilemmas over how far is too far. For the first time in the War Doctor series we're taken to the heart of the Time War and hear what the Time Lords to do to win it. David Warner does a superb job as the villain and plays very well off John Hurt, and Zoe Tapper does a wonderful job playing Collis, a reluctant warrior who is resurrected. Overall, this is a very solid and meaty script to start this box set.
