Lots of surprises and high-intensity action make a great episode
2 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This isn't my favorite episode. That ranking still belongs to The Girl in the Fireplace, but this hour may be the most intense episode of Doctor Who yet. It has a number of surprises that I wouldn't dream of spoiling for those who haven't seen the episode yet. Be warned that the worst part of seeing this episode is having to wait a week for 2.13.

It should be safe to say that Rose is at the top of her form. Jackie is back, and coping better with Rose and the Doctor than we've seen before. The ghosts of the episode title make a great starting place for the Doctor's inquisitive spirit, and even with dramatic foreshadowing, the resolution of the nature of the ghosts is chilling. What comes immediately afterward takes everything in a new direction, and makes it far worse than I had expected.

There is a pleasant surprise in the return of an old friend, but without having seen 2.13, I have no idea who will survive. Relax, and prepare for a great episode of Doctor Who. Just don't expect to stay relaxed for long.
