When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.
Edward James Olmos,
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
The Doctor and Donna join a group of archaeologists at a 51st century library. What caused the library to become abandoned? What are the Nodes? And what links the library to one little girl? All they have is one warning - count the shadows. Written by
When the Doctor scans for "any kind of life form" he's surprised to find a million million life forms. Considering that "any" kind of life would include microbes the surprising thing would be that there are so few. See more »
Close your eyes and tell me what you see.
[fade in to POV of drifting outside and above]
[the Girl looks down, sees herself suspended in the air, drifting above The Library]
Open your eyes again. Where are you now.
[as if this is obvious]
My living room, Dr. Moon.
When you close your eyes...?
I go to The Library.
[we see Dad seated behind Dr. Moon's right, concerned]
Go to The Library now.

Hey A Decent Black Actor In The Show ! I'm Nostalgic Already
As I write this there's a continuing rumour that Paterson Joseph will be the first black doctor . I can't help being very edgy by this news since there's no way he's the best actor for the role . In fact there's no way he's even the best black actor for the eponymous role . In the highly unlikely event of Eamon Walker being offered then there's surely only one other contender and that is Colin Salmon who plays the role of the paediatric psychiatrist here and as an actor he possess range , presence and a intriguing alien quality . Now imagine the director had cast Joseph in Salmon's role ? It wouldn't have been an improvement at all
As for the rest of the episode it's Moffat scripted which means it's a very acquired taste . Like much of his previous work on the show there's not much much happening plot wise , there's a catch phrase ( In this case " Who put the lights out ? " ) and being a two part story he has managed to write a fairly good cliffhanger as he did with The Empty Child . However when all is said and done he's no genius and one can't help thinking he has his own very different vision for the show from Russell T Davies . Say what you like about RTD but he's a populist writer and producer where as Moffat is much more esoteric . One wonders if this is where the phenomenal success of Nu-Who started to end ?
