In the scene where Elton is fixing Jackie Tyler's washing machine, there's an item on the shelf next to her which looks to be the pencil scribble ball the Doctor catches in the following episode "Fear her". See more »
Get a grip! Some of you people really do take this programme faaaar too seriously!! Lighten up! Yes, this episode *was* funny and it was different - and I actually liked, what some people are calling the Scooby Doo chase thingy. It's just a bit of fun! I thought both Marc Warren (who's great in anything he's in) and Peter Kay were excellent and extremely amusing in their own ways.
To be honest, it was a really risky episode seeing a lot of people have criticised it so badly (the elitists, obviously O_o) - but broaden your minds! Open them! This is NOT the Doctor Who of 30-40 years ago. We're in the 21st century and it's good that this show is actually doing something different.
The reviews in the papers seem more positive though. I've read nothing but praise for this episode, well before I came on here at least!
Perhaps you're all purists or something, but there has to be a change somewhere and just as a one-off, this was a fun episode.
