The Doctor and Donna are taking a bit of a break from their adventures and spending a bit of time on the planet Midnight. While Donna opts to spend a bit of time in the spa, the Doctor goes off on an all-day bus tour to the Sapphire Waterfall. Part way through the four hour journey to get there, the vehicle stops for no apparent reason. When they hear noise coming from outside the vehicle, panic begins to set in. When one of the passengers is taken over by the being, the passengers paranoia and fear know no bounds and the focus of their solution is to eliminate the Doctor. Written by garykmcd

This episode had me switching between fear and laughter the whole time. It steadily built up the suspense, taking you from "Wait. There's something wrong, here" to the edge of your seat, gnawing on your pillow in terror.

Or maybe that was just me...

David Tennant's performance was one of the best so far this season. It left me in great empathy.

And I don't believe the "Don't...don't do that..." will ever get old for me, ha ha.

A great episode all in all, but I suppose it left some things to be desired (like Donna--her absence for the majority of the episode rather upset me!).
