Trivia

For a number of drafts, a key element of the adventure involved the Doctor and the Plasmavore each trying to reach the hospital basement, where the TARDIS was hidden. Russell T. Davies subsequently felt that this was too banal a plot strand, however, and decided to have the time machine left behind on Earth instead. See more »

Goofs

The name of the hospital is Royal Hope Hospital, but the doors and signs all have the initials RHT on them, not RHH. See more »

Outrageously entertaining start to the "third" series
31 March 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Smith and Jones" is a superb beginning to the "third" series of "Doctor Who". Fast-paced, exciting and funny, the episode takes us from the normality of London's Royal Hope Hospital to a quiet spot on the surface of the moon. Not that it's peaceful for long! With the arrival of the space-rhino policemen, the Judoon, events soon take a turn for the worse.

This episode's story would always be overshadowed by its purpose - the introduction of a new companion for Tennant's Doctor. The exquisitely beautiful and talented Freema Agyeman sizzles on the screen. It would not come as a surprise to me if Agyeman ranks as a favourite companion in years to come. Brave, intelligent and adventurous, this new companion will definitely be a match for the Doctor and will bring a new element to the series. Those fans mourning the departure of Rose will soon find themselves hooked by Martha Jones, not to mention her family.

As always, Murray Gold's music is big and beautiful, bringing extra emotional weight to key scenes.

The straight-to-the-point Judoon are a great creation from the mind of Russell T. Davies. The design and delivery of this new alien-race is splendid and Nicholas Briggs' distinctive vocal work is the icing on the cake.

Following the "first" season's "Bad Wolf" clues, after viewing "The Runaway Bride" and "Smith and Jones", the sharp-eyed / eared viewer may well be pondering, "Just who is Mr. Saxon"?

A strong 8 out of 10. Season 3 looks bigger and better than what's gone before.
