A run in with the Doctor at a young age leads Elton to a group who's studying him, they become friends and have a laugh until Victor Kennedy arrives. Suddenly everything becomes more serious then people start disappearing from the group.Written by
It's implied throughout the episode that Elton is considerably younger than Jackie. In reality, the actors are only two years apart. See more »
Turns out I've had the most terrible things happen. And the most brilliant things. And sometimes, well, I can't tell the difference. They're all the same thing. They're... they're just me. You know, Stephen King said once, he said, "salvation and damnation are the same thing." And I never knew what he meant. But I do now.

A filler episode pure and simple. Want to see Rose's mum acting the tart? Come on in. Want a silly little absurd love story? Hop aboard. Want a larger then life over the top villain that gives the 'farting, belching aliens' from the previous series a run for their money in the banality department? This one's for you. However if you want a good Doctor Who story, look elsewhere. I deliberately put off reviewing this one until I reviewed the good episodes of Who's second season (as well as the recent Christmas special) because I really don't like saying anything bad about Who stories and try not to as much as I can. Boredom and the sake of completion were the only factors motivating me to review this one. Long story sort (too late) you can give this episode a skip and not feel like you miss anything (aside from a few cringe-worthy jokes of course)
