[Rose spots a cat while she and the Doctor are in the street]
Rose: [Kneeling down to stroke it] Aren't you a beautiful boy!
The Doctor: [has his back to Rose and thinks that Rose is talking to him] Thanks. I've been experimenting with back-combing... oh.
[the Doctor sees Rose stroking the cat and gives the feline a uncomfortable look. Rose notices this]
Rose: [looking at the Doctor] What?
The Doctor: No, I'm not really a cat person. Once you've been threatened by one in a nuns wimple, kind of takes the joy out of it.

Very Dull
6 May 2008 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is considered to be the weakest story of series two and it's not very difficult to see why . Coming after a couple of stories , one of which is considered to be a modern classic ( The Impossible Planat/Satan Pit ) while the other ( Love And Monsters ) is one of the most radical pieces of television produced Fear Her was never going to be all that well received , but its Luke warm reception is to do mainly with the fact it's a very dull predictable story

If you watched the " next time " trailer from the previous week then you'll know in advance as to what the story is about and therefore there's no suspense . You also can't help notice that because the plot was one of those written on the back of a cigarette packet efforts then there's so much padding centered around on dysfunctional family issues , in this case single parenthood . Really I often think some of the writers would be more at home working on EASTENDERS or CORONATION STREET . All this is bad enough but we've got a bloody stupid sequence of the Doctor carrying the Olympic torch ! It shows had badly constructed the episode was when you've got to include crap like that
