Worst ever episode?
12 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This whole series has been poor and the last episode was pretty bad but this episode was utterly abysmal. What was the point of dragging the Cybermen in as a stupid sub plot that is resolved in such a stupid manner. Matt Smith was someone I did not think would be any good but he has managed to portray a really good character despite some pitiful scripts. The guy can only work with the dross he is given but deserves better than episodes like this one. I like the four central characters and their relationship and await the questions being answered in series 7 of the new Doctor but can we have some decent scripts this time round. It's a shame as the series has been rejuvinated since Chris Eccleston took the helm and both Tennant and Smith has given the Doctor some real gravitas but the writing has suffered in recent years becoming lazy as in this dreadful 50 minutes. The Doctor already did a grand tour awaiting his death with David Tennant. And the less said about the resolution of the final episode the better. Chimps could come out with better stories.
