Rose goes off on her first adventure with the Doctor who takes her 5 billion years into the future to view a cataclysmic event: the destruction of the Earth. They're on an orbiting space platform with a groups of invited guests who seem to travel from one cataclysmic event to another. There are uninvited guests as well in the form of spider-like mechanical robots that seem to multiply at will and are obviously bent on causing destruction. The spiders soon dispose of the Steward and gain control of the orbiting platform's mainframe. It doesn't take long for the Doctor to figure out just which of the invited guests is behind it all.

This was very much so my type of Dr. Who episode. I am a fan of Dr. Who episode that take place in the distant future or on other planets. Classic Sci-Fi with aliens that are new and unique, fun plot twists, and futuristic worlds are my favorite type of Sci-Fi experiences. Dr. Who deliver that in full with a plot twist you will never see coming, amazing aliens (done like Star Wars Original, they are not all CGI and that makes them top line and interesting), and the connections made emotionally push me further into the story. I can't help but feel like I have become addicted.
If you love Sci-Fi, from aliens to alternate worlds you'll love Dr. Who. To be frank this series is not just Sci-Fi, but also Historical, Mystery, Thriller and Adventure, and even Paranormal at times. It encompasses everything you love about watching and reading.
