The supposedly servile Ood are now in the control of some type of beast that describes itself as Satan and claims to be a being that has existed since before the creation of the known universe. Rose takes charge and tries to find a way to get everyone out safely. The Doctor and Ida have descended 10 miles into the bowels of the planet only to find themselves trapped there and unable to return to the surface. They find evidence of a ancient civilization and a seemingly bottomless pit where the doctor confronts the beast and finds the solution. The only problem is that the solution may kill Rose.Written by
The Ood's communication balls/weapons are practical props when the Ood are holding them, but CGI when they are being used as weapons and shocking people. See more »
According to the Ood telepathic field monitor. Level 5 means normal "speech" and level 30 means "screaming." By this comparison, higher numbers mean stronger mental activity. However, it is stated that Level 100 indicates brain death, even though brain death means NO mental activity. See more »

Being that it's a family film I am surprised that they brought some stuff in like fear and faith, especially if its also going to entertain American audiences. But who care about what Yanks say, we rock! Doctor Who has shown potential ever since from episode one from the new series in 2005, first being so harmless to scary, from fun to serious, from light to darkness. I hope many old fans will one day soon say "The old Doctor Who has returned".
