Storyline

The Doctor and Donna are taking a bit of a break from their adventures and spending a bit of time on the planet Midnight. While Donna opts to spend a bit of time in the spa, the Doctor goes off on an all-day bus tour to the Sapphire Waterfall. Part way through the four hour journey to get there, the vehicle stops for no apparent reason. When they hear noise coming from outside the vehicle, panic begins to set in. When one of the passengers is taken over by the being, the passengers paranoia and fear know no bounds and the focus of their solution is to eliminate the Doctor. Written by garykmcd

Minimalistically brilliant
19 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With minimal set and a small group of actors, this is a fantastically claustrophobic and effective episode. Unusually for one penned by Russell T. Davies, this episode is removed from the story arc of the series, and as Blink, would stand alone as a short sci-fi horror.

A strange choice to follow the atmospheric Forest of the Dead, as three such strong episodes in a row could make the overall arc of the series uneven - but it's an episode worth watching purely for itself, regardless of the rest of the series. Interesting and frightening, with a marvellous performance from Lesley Sharpe, and an unusually restrained turn from David Tennant. Magic.
