The Magic Continues
6 May 2008 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Oh dear . It doesn't look good does it ? RTD writes an entire episode around a competition winner from BLUE PETER . Add to this some stunt casting in the form of Peter Kay and the dreaded " C " word ( Comedy ) and you've got something that will lead to a fatwa for the DOCTOR WHO production team . I must admit that if the ideas involved seemed risqué then the reality succeeded beyond all imagination . This is black romantic post modernist comedy at its very best

There is a section of DOCTOR WHO fandom that will despise this episode . They're usually composed of humourless , self righteous , self centered people who thankfully don't make up the majority of DOCTOR WHO fans anymore than they make up the wider human species . It's their loss that they didn't enjoy this episode which breaks every rule of the show's format . The Doctor and his companion feature very little and the story is told via video cam and flashback and the production team deserve great congratulations for doing something a very bit different . The guest cast are all excellent and I certainly look forward to seeing more of Marc Warren as Elton Pope . But only if the follow up story is as radical , witty and oh so enjoyable as this one . The magic of the show continued for this fan
