Storyline

Independently of one another, the Doctor and Donna Noble are investigating Adipose Industries who claim to have created a revolutionary diet pill. The head of Adipose, Miss Foster, runs a pretty tight ship and they have been quite successful. Donna visits several people who have taken the pills and as advertised, the pills seem to be working. Except of course for the person that virtually vanishes, excerpt for a strange little creature in the bathroom sink. The Doctor and Donna join up eventually and come to the realization that there is definitely something alien behind what is going on. Written by garykmcd

"I'm waving at fat!"
26 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ahh! The return of Donna Noble. I love this character and the comedy she brought to the show! So, obviously I'm excited when I hear she's returned to who! Sadly, this episode wasn't a great restart for Miss Tate. The plot seemed to be just thrown in there. An idea that the writers said about: "wouldn't it be funny if..." But eventually they had to use it. So, though the plot was just plain silly, the acting was top notch. Though the villain didn't really have a huge role, her acting made her slightly villain like. At least compared to chunks of baby fat! But Tate and Tennat really showed the comedy in this episode. In their first encounter in PIC they really had me rolling! So, while this episodes plot is quite sickening, watch just for a laugh! Because Tennant and Tate are quite the duo!
