The very first scene of the episode, when Elton sees the TARDIS near the warehouses, was originally supposed to be shot at the dockside. However, due to a large shipment of steel cables, that location fell through at the last minute. See more »

Haaaaa! Haa! Ha! Ha! Ha! Haaah!
20 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Oh come on! I've been watching Doctor Who since I was five years old (30 years ago) and I've never seen an episode quite as funny as this one (not even the one with Bertie Basset in it). Don't take it so seriously, it was a totally played for laughs, self-mocking episode. Chasing the monster backwards and forwards across the screen at the start of the episode was straight out of Scooby Doo or classic Laurel & Hardy. Peter Kays human costume was a parody of the eccentric costumes earlier incarnations of the Doctor had worn (Ecclestone and Tennant look just too plain by comparison), and his Abzorbaloff costume harked back to the days when Doctor Who monsters were obviously just men in rubber suits (although I admit the kid who designed it couldn't have realised that, but then he did want it to be the size of a bus). Peter Kay didn't even bother trying to disguise his voice and if anything sounded even more northern as the monster. The soundtrack was great (I love ELO) and the blow job joke at the end had me in stitches. All in all the funniest Doctor Who episode ever, and a fantastic bit of light relief for between "The Satan Pit" and the next few episodes.
