Storyline

After delivering Margaret the Slitheen to her home planet, the Doctor, Rose and Captain Jack Harkness awaken to find themselves as part of TV reality or game shows. The Doctor is in the Big Brother house; Rose is a contestant on the Weakest Link; and Captain Jack is on What Not to Wear. The only difference is that if you lose on this show, your are evidently eliminated - they take your life. The Doctor manages to escape and quickly realizes where they are: once again on Satellite 5, only this time 100 years beyond their last visit. The Doctor realizes that something has gone very wrong with Earth's development and believes something far more sinister and complex is going on when he learns the satellite is now know as Bad Wolf TV. He and Captain Jack race to find Rose but too late, he realizes that he must once again face his greatest enemy. Written by garykmcd

When the best imitate the worst...
19 December 2013 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This has to be the worst episode of the entire 50 year run of Dr. Who. Why on earth (and yes, we are still stuck on earth) would one of the best scripted shows to emerge in a century of television feel that it had something to gain by drawing inspiration from the worst dregs of the death of all that is any good in television? When the best start to deliberately imitate the worst, you have to start fearing that the human race is really going to hell under its own power, without needing Daleks to help it. This was a bad mistake, and a sad day for Dr. Who. But keep the faith... forget this rubbish and soldier on - better things do await.
