The Doctor: You said before you knew me... that you were just a disease. Well, before you, I was just a projection of photons, held together by force fields. A computerized physician, doing a job. Doing it exceptionally well, of course, but still, it was... just a profession. Not a life. But now that you are here, and my programming has adapted, I'm not just working anymore. I'm living, learning what it means... to be with someone, to love someone. I don't think I can go back to the way things were either....

Doctor in love
22 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a Vidiian woman is beamed to sick bay The Doctor transfers her consciousness to a holographic body as her own is rapidly deteriorating and he needs her help to treat her body. When she is awakened she is delighted to find that instead of being in her scarred and diseased body she looks and feels healthy for the first time since she was a child. During the course of their working together the Doctor grows close to her and eventually tells her how he feels but his approach is so matter of fact that she is turns him down. Believing that nobody would be interested in her if she was back in her real scarred body she attempts to poison it but the Doctor makes in clear to her that it is her personality not her body that he is interested in. In secondary plots Tom Paris is continuing to turn up late for shifts and when told he isn't needed till he can turn up on time he knows Chakotay to the floor, interestingly this storyline is not resolved; I suspect it is building up to a story which will be the main plot in an upcoming episode.

This was a good episode as most ones centred on the Doctor are, Robert Picardo is very good in the role, Susan Diol made a welcome guest appearance as the Vidiian Dr. Danara Pel, her scenes with the Doctor were very touching. I also liked the fact that the secondary story was left unresolved, it made me curious to learn how it will be resolved and why Tom has started to act out of character lately.
