Storyline

The Doctor and Martha arrive in present day Cardiff to refuel the TARDIS and are inexplicably thrust to a distant planet 100 trillion years into the future. When they arrive they realize they have an unexpected passenger in Captain Jack Harkness who has been patiently waiting for the Doctor's return since the mid-19th century. On the planet they eventually meet Professor Yana who is running the 1000-year old Utopia project, the aim of which is to relocate the human-like creatures to a new planet, away from the outsiders who they fear they will become if they don't leave. When Prof. Yana has need of someone to make repairs in a room in which no one can survive, the Doctor has the perfect candidate. The Professor is not what he seems to be however and Martha notices he has a fob watch much like one the Doctor recently made use of. Written by garykmcd

Top marks to all involved
11 July 2013 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

From Chipo Chung to Derek Jacobi, all involved give brilliant performances here. The enthused scientist chatter between the Doctor and the Professor is a breath of fresh air, and the sci-fi/metaphysical chatter between the Doctor and Jack is refreshing as well.

Looking back at this episode with the benefit of the intervening years to place it, I would say that it represents a zenith of sorts for the show. Great script, excellent execution, etc.. Some great moments followed, "Waters of Mars" for example, but the tight execution and dynamic cast on display here are brilliant. Freema Agyeman is great, as well as the supporting cast and especially John Simm.
