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

Sheer fluff
10 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Fourth season opens with the reintroducing of one of the most annoying characters in recent Doctor Who memory, (no not the Slitheen, let's hopefully NEVER see them again, knock on wood) Catherine Tate as reprising her role of Donna Noble from 'the Runaway Bride'. She and the Doctor are both separately looking into Adipose industries and their testing of a new weight-loss product that has some strange side effects.

OK, first the good news Tate isn't nearly as grating as she was on the Christmas special she was on, that in itself is cause to celebrate. But that celebration is sort lived when one realizes that the story is lacking at it's core and has nothing to show for it than miniature Staypuft Marshmellow man made of body fat. Way too silly to be taken at all seriously. The only thing going for the episode is a small cameo near the end.

My Grade: C-
