Writing is better than At Sea, Down Under
23 January 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I should add that with Layton and Oddie at the helm, this series is far better written and generally better conceived than the mid to late 70s Doctor outings. It would have benefited from having a few more of the older characters appear as guests, at least, if not regulars, such as Bingham and particularly Upton who is referenced once but not seen. Better use could have also been made of the students and, considering the physicality of the original, some slapstick would have helped. As it was, as Layton later remarked, it was the series that "depressed the nation" with its middle aged angst. Sadly, with Robin's death as well as that of original leading man Barry Evans, this will definitely be the last Doctor series with the original cast. There is a rumoured remake of the Doctor in the House movie being considered, however.
