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.

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 »

Quotes

The Beast: [in the possesed body of Toby Zed] I am the rage and the vile and the voracity. I am the Prince and the Fallen. I am the Enemy, I am the Sin and the fear and darkness. I shall never die. The thought of me is forever; in the bleeding hearts of men, in their vanity and obsecrate and lust. Nothing shall ever destroy me. Nothing!
Rose Tyler: [Rose picks up a bolt gun and prepares to shoot the cockpit's front window] Go to Hell.

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
