An Embarrassment to the Series
16 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

My brain has just melted and started oozing out of my ears. This episode was pointless, had bad writing, dull acting, and really, the only enjoyable part was listening to a bit of ELO. The humor that Russell T. Davies was apparently so desperately trying for can be found on any sitcom- the more cliché the better. I'm sure Mr. Davies wanted to shake things up, but I suggest the next time he has that urge, he makes sure that he's actually creative, and doesn't steal the oldest, stalest, most overused ideas.

If this was your exposure to Doctor Who, don't give up. It's a brilliant series. This is just one of those episodes that's best swept under the carpet and forgotten about.
