Very inventive episode. The Tardis ends up on Pluto, which is run by a corporation that drains every tellmar from the pockets of the workers. The Gatherer and the Collector are absolutely hilarious, and I think they had a great time doing this ep.

The Collector, the guy in charge, is a greedy, hunched over scifi accountant. He always looks like he is on the verge of a smile, like he is letting the audience in on the trick of his character.

The Gatherer, his subordinate, is the perfect corporate toadie, willing to do anything to make another tellmar.

At the end of the ep, Dr. Who is a bit snippy. He tells people to SHUT UP!!
