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

Originally, Russell T. Davies intended the Face of Boe to impart his message upon the Doctor in this episode; when he discovered that a third series was definitely to occur, Davies quickly decided to delay Boe's message for a year. This is one of several plot and thematic details that Davies chose at a rather late stage of development to move from series two to three (including whole episodes, such as the 2006 Christmas special, Doctor Who: The Runaway Bride (2006)).

Goofs

When the Doctor and Rose get into separate elevators to go visit the Face of Boe, the Doctor gets into the left one and Rose into the right. The Doctor gets off at the proper floor from the left elevator. But Rose (being abducted to the lower level by Chip) also gets out of the left elevator, instead of the right one like she should.

Quotes

Rose: That was our first date.

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!
