Storyline

The supposedly servile Ood are now in the control of some type of beast that describes itself as Satan and claims to be a being that has existed since before the creation of the known universe. Rose takes charge and tries to find a way to get everyone out safely. The Doctor and Ida have descended 10 miles into the bowels of the planet only to find themselves trapped there and unable to return to the surface. They find evidence of a ancient civilization and a seemingly bottomless pit where the doctor confronts the beast and finds the solution. The only problem is that the solution may kill Rose.

Trivia

Due to the shooting schedule (especially the fact that all of the episodes with the Cybermen needed to be shot together), this episode was shot closest to its air date. Combined with the immense amount of CGI work needed in this episode, the production staff was concerned about finishing it by the air date and, in fact, were unable to provide a preview tape to the media as they usually did (prompting speculation that they did not release a preview because of some big plot-based secret).

Goofs

Despite the comments of the Doctor and others, it is quite possible to establish a stable orbit around a black hole (or any other large mass in space), given appropriate velocity and distance. (Our own Sun is, in fact, in orbit around a super-massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way galaxy.) See more »

Doctor Who meets Doom3
10 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent 2-part episode, although I had never been seen the older ones, I never thought the doctor would go up against anything that is paranormal, extra terrestial of course but not paranormal.

This episode brings the things that we most fear and how would we humans, in a futuristic time, would fight and defeat real live evil when most odds say that would be impossible.

Being that it's a family film I am surprised that they brought some stuff in like fear and faith, especially if its also going to entertain American audiences. But who care about what Yanks say, we rock! Doctor Who has shown potential ever since from episode one from the new series in 2005, first being so harmless to scary, from fun to serious, from light to darkness. I hope many old fans will one day soon say "The old Doctor Who has returned".

10 out of 10
