Did You Know?


It's implied throughout the episode that Elton is considerably younger than Jackie. In reality, the actors are only two years apart. See more »


Elton Pope: 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 that ,ironically, isn't filling
25 January 2007 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

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)

My Grade: D+
