Did You Know?


The Hoix (the alien seen chasing and being chased by the Doctor and Rose at the beginning of the episode) was improvised out of bits and pieces the designers had lying around because they were originally only supposed to create the Abzorbaloff, the primary monster in the episode. The director's only request was "lots of drool". Additionally, the Hoix was not named until after filming they needed a name for the credits. See more »


The Doctor: You're not from Raxacoricofallapatorius, are you?
Victor Kennedy: No, I'm not! They're swine! I spit on them! I was born on their twin planet.
The Doctor: Really? What's the twin planet of Raxacoricofallapatorius?
Victor Kennedy: Clom.

LIghten up, it was a sweet little romantic comedy
3 July 2006 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

In a season that has bee populated by shoddiness - often good ideas are either poorly executed or laden with useless plot gratuities that have become so ho hum lately or the character of Rose is just annoying - this one is more like a little science fiction romantic comedy that just happens to feature the Doctor and Rose and could easily be viewed and enjoyed without ever seeing any other episode of the series ever again.

The plot concerns a guy who becomes very interested in this mysterious figure the Doctor and hooks up with a club devoted to the same pursuit that he meets online. The club is filled with the same kind of awkward but friendly types and their discussions of the Doctor eventually morph into pot luck dinners and a cute, silly little rock band that does ELO covers - until a mysterious fellow shows up and commandeers the group in order to find more out about the Doctor.

Marc Warren is sweet and goofy as Elton and Peter Kay is nicely over the top as the mysterious guy who takes over. It's very light entertainment, but nonetheless touching and funny . . . and out of left field, really. It's nice to see that in this season of retreads and by-the-numbers half thought out junk that writer Russell T. Davies could take a moment to try something a little different for a change.
