The Doctor and Rose travel to London in 2012 to see the Olympics - only to find that children are mysteriously disappearing before peoples very eyes. The answer seems to lie with a young girl named Chloe and her strange drawings - but is there something more sinister behind the disappearances?Written by
The episode was filmed during late January and early February 2006, with the cold temperatures experienced during filming being explained in the plot as part of the Isolus' endothermic nature. See more »

I've tried thinking of words to describe it.........oh yeah, crap
Prior to this, The Long Game was my all time nu who low, but this!! This was and remains utterly unbearable to watch, this makes Timelash look like a masterpiece. Firstly the trailer the week before had given away the entire story, so we knew exactly what was coming, and when it did come, I'm sure we all wish it hadn't. It had every conceivable cliché under the sun, the creepy child, the down trodden mum, the cupboard, the spooky voices, how did this get past the planning stage? I will stand up for Love and Monsters, again not a classic, but had so much more going for it then Fear Her. The Olympic theme was perhaps a good one, but it was so badly realised, and the Doctor with the torch is cringe worthy. I quite enjoyed Edna Dore's scenes, and Rose's scenes with Kel were good fun. I could imagine this appealing to children under 8, but for anyone over 9 it's a write off. 3/10
