The Doctor: [playing with a remote controlled toy helicopter] It goes up, tiddly up! It goes down, tiddly down! For only £49.99, which I think personally is a bit steep. But then again, it's your parents' cash, and they'll only waste it on boring stuff like lamps and vegetables. YAWN!

Not bad, could be worse
24 April 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Thinking about both seasons 5 and 6 (almost) this average episode - a typical filler before the climax - looks like a really good one. The Doctor meets Craig, whom is now married and has a son. He'll be a one time Doctor companion (or partner?) while taking care of the child: the basic idea of the whole misunderstanding of the Doctor and Craig as a gay couple with a child made me smile, but... we had Jack Harkness on board and here the Doctor doesn't realize anything at all, seriously?

Now the worst part: the Cybermen. I am expecting a mall invaded by mannequins, not by the Cybermen, what's next, Dalek's at McDonald's? I guess this is supposed to be one of the funny parts, but, in my opinion, it doesn't work at all, it is actually the worst idea of the whole episode.

All told an enjoyable episode, a reasonable filler which makes me think there's still a little hope for Doctor Who.
