Best of the new series by far
20 May 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the last few episodes I was expecting this episode to be on the same average level but this is definitely the best episode of the new series and Freema Agyemans companion I think personally is a lot better than Rose and it definitely shows in this episode and David Tennants Doctor especially in the last 10-15 of the episode was amazing. Also the supporting characters in this episode are a lot more believable and the story line overall is awesome and has a lot of emotional parts in it which were quite moving. The special effects in this one were breath taking and definitely reminded me of Satan's pit and the impossible planet which are my favourite episodes since Doctor Who came back.
