Lazarus rising
8 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

12 hours after Martha and the Doctor left for that promised 'one trip' at the tail end of episode one they arrive back in her time. He plans to merely drop her off, but gets intrigued by a news conference that has a professor, Martha's sister by his side, proclaiming he's made a new scientific discovery that will change humanity. He decides to stay for a bit to see what that's all about and thus begins the new adventure.

The story in this episode is nothing overtly special, in fact it's a very simple straight-forward mad professor and his monster creation tale. But after the overly convoluted mess that was the previous Dalek two-part fiasco, this was a breath of fresh air. Sure there are a some thongs that don't work. (the CGI-monster is merely mediocre, Martha's mum is a pale imitation of Rose's, etcetera...) But it's still enjoyable. Plus Mark Gatiss is brilliant as Lazarus.

My Grade: B-
