Did You Know?


This episode was deliberately written to feature only a small amount of The Doctor and Rose. Due to the tight filming schedule, there was a requirement to shoot this episode at the same time as episodes 8 and 9 (called being "double backed".) This would not have been possible if this episode had large appearances of The Doctor and Rose. Similar "Doctor lite" and "Companion lite" episodes have been used in almost every season since.

Crap. Absolute Crap
13 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I heard that people had a problem with this episode before I even got to it. However, I didn't think that I would listen to their criticisms of it. Instead, I wanted to watch the beast roll around before I skipped to the butterfly. In other words, I wanted to give it a shot before I watched another episode. But it was so bad that I had to literally continue onto episode 11.

Why was that? Because it HAD nothing to do with the actual plot and the freaking' characters! It makes me so angry that they made an episode like this! The characters were flat and annoying and the entire story is a disgrace. Whoever wrote this made the idiot mistake of producing a script so bad that it required a cast of horrible actors to accent its vulgarity -- a sharp contrast to the typical cast of, y'know, sharp actors that can do their job without sounding stupid, or ridiculous.

I know that I might be taking this a little too far, but I felt like I was ripped off. I've never had a problem with this show up until this point, not until this episode came up. It's so disgusting to even look at....Let alone think about.
