Donna is terrified at her first off-world trip where she and the Doctor encounter the Ood. It's the year 4126 and they seem to have arrived at factory where the Ood are prepared for sale to anyone willing to pay the price. The Ood from all appearances are a subservient race and are fitted with a communications device. Some of them however seem to be going rabid with their eyes turning a bright red. The company has been selling the Ood for some 200 years now and while it all seems benign on the surface, there is something far more sinister at work here. Written by
Donna says, "He's gone," to the Doctor when the Ood that was shot dies of his injuries, yet the actor can clearly be seen taking in a large breath when the camera angle switches to a long shot. See more »
[standing in a container full of Ood]
Ood, tell me. Does 'the Circle' mean anything to you?
[all the translators light up at once]
The Circle must be broken.
Whoa, that is creepy.
But what is it? What is the Circle?
The Circle must be broken!
So that we can sing!

The Doctor and Donna visit the snow, and Find the Ood. But the Ood are being controlled by something, and they are being turned Rabid, crazy.
This is a good episode, with the return of the Ood.A great episode, and worth watching. The Ood first featured in the 2006 series of Doctor Who,in the Impossible Planet,and the Satin Pit, were they were also controlled by a being, known as the beast, the devil, or satin. Donna is disturbed by the song of the Ood, and how they are slaves, and by their song, the song of the Ood. In some bits of the episode, there are some unusual bits, but, their are very good special effects. In the 2006 series, Rose was also questioning the Oods part in serving humanity, and why they serve. The Ood say they are born to serve. The Ood are an excellent addition to the vast section of monsters and villains of Doctor Who. The Confidential of this episode is also worth watching, it shows how the did some of the special effects, and which is costume and which is not.
All in all, the Episode is an excellent one, starring David Tennent, and Cathrine Tate, and is worth watching by anyone who likes Doctor Who, or Science fiction, or anyone at all.
