Storyline

The Doctor and Rose set out on their first adventure together since the Doctor regenerated. The Doctor takes Rose to see the Planet New Earth, colonized by the human race since the destruction of the original planet Earth. On arriving the Doctor receives an invitation to visit a hospital run by the sisters of plenitude. A sisterhood of cat-women nuns who have the uncanny ability to cure so many long thought incurable diseases. But as the Doctor and Rose discover there is a sinister method as to how the Sisterhood manage to develop such cures. While unknown to them both an old enemy thought to be deceased, awaits the Time lord and his companion. Written by Robert McElwaine

Trivia

The giant "BAD WOLF" graffiti written on a paved public area of Rose's estate (seen in Doctor Who: The Parting of the Ways (2005)) is still visible, though faded, at the start of the episode. See more »

Goofs

Those people created for medical experiments cannot run. In fact they can barely walk, so how come they can climb nearly as fast as Rose? What's more, when you see them climbing, they seem to have little ability to coordinate hand over hand. Even with the delay brought on by the cat-woman-thing, they should not have been able to keep up with her. See more »

Quotes

Cassandra (in Rose's body): Wake up and smell the perfume!

Amazing
21 April 2006 | by (Notts, UK) – See all my reviews

I thought this was absolutely amazing! I loved the first series and this is still as good as ever. A long with all the wonderful weirdness, there was humour and a scary part. i loved the "Disenfectant" part and the Lady Cassandra as Chip "Oh sweet lord, I'm a walking doodle." my favourite quote was this; "He said, he's talk to the wanderer, to the man without a home. The lonely God." Well done to Billie and David. Keep it up, you're fantastic! Me and my brother watched this together, and for the first time since he saw the Dalek's, he was scared stiff! I laughed as he hid behind the cushion but I must admit some parts made me jump as well!
