Less oinking, please
24 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I really can't pass the three previous and very positive user comments by in silence. I completely disagree. This was a dull, cliché-ridden and predictable episode which I'm not likely to ever watch again. I really don't see how anybody can find the pig slaves either funny, scary or in any other way interesting. They were toe-cringingly awful.

After three great episodes, season three is finally showing that it can't maintain that high standard, which is too bad. And to make it worse, it makes a double episode out of this dog. Gah.

And the Daleks AGAIN?! A good thing should not be over-used! Get it into yer skulls, Who-people!

5 out of 10.
