"I would rate it a C, OK, not great" Something on those lines by Lrr - When Aliens Attack.

Back to this, I don't think it was the best episode but I guess it wasn't as bad as last years. Which was kinda good. I did like the Futurama references, but we all know RTD won't admit to them.

I thought it had a bit of a Sylvester McCoy vibe to it, in a good way, with the obligatory Russell T Davies cheesiness thrown in.

Exactly the same, only I laughed at the cheesy bits.

It's how I cope with life, come to think of it.  smile

Let's see, best use of the Doctor saying 'forty-two', loved the design of the ship. Music was pretty good, although Astrid's Theme sounded disturbingly similar to a certain tune made famous by James Cameron and Celine Dion... And 'Stowaway' added a bit of a joyous touch at the end. Sweet. Sweet as in 'very moving', that is. Made me smile, it did.

I also think that Richard Bucket would have made a great companion. But, you gotta think, maybe the Doctor realised that his adventure-drenched life was not the safest place for such an elderly bloke. That's one way of looking at the matter, I suppose.

To tell the truth, I'm quite looking forward to Donna. Lovely chemistry there'll be, for sure. And have you heard the news about the next series' Doctor-lite episode?

I hope they execute this well... It has so much potential...

The "reunion" moment had me in stitches. Donna is fantastic!

And did anyone else think "Popplers" when the nursery planet was mentioned?

The second episode of this series was much better than the first and much darker. I think the episodes that do not take place on present day Earth are better by and large... although Blink broke that rule at it is my favourite episode to date.


I hope future episodes are as good as that one  smile

Agreed, I thought the episode was absolutely fantastic, maybe not as powerful as Family of Blood or overall greatness of Blink but it was really, really good, and although I didn't dislike the first episode, this one was much, much better.

I like Donna so far, and I'm kinda glad they've got the "yes I'm from Galifrey and yes it's all gone" bit out of the way already. Very much looking forward to the rest of the season.

Other thing about this and last week's was that while I felt that sometimes the effect in the first episode looked a little tiny bit cheap, I thought the production values on this one looked really impressive.

I'm loving all the little bits of plot that they already appear to be setting up.

How do you cover up your spoilers by the way?

Gosh, I love series4, if they keep up to this standard all along that would be awesome, brilliant situations and hilarious moments.
Especially this one, the first episode was kinda cheesy sometimes with the potatoes (but still it had some hilarious scenes as well).
Donna definitely, undeniably rules. And the water pistol made me ROFL XD

I always loved the parts when they give us hints about the finale. Like The Impossible Planet, or Gridlock, or the Torchwood, Bad Wolf, Vote Saxon things.  smile

I liked the Pompeii episode. The dialogue was a bit iffy in some places but overall it was very good (and the special effects made up for last week's episode with the aliens that looked like damp rolls of toilet paper). Catherine Tate's dramatic acting was on par with her comic acting (the "don't run to the beaches" scene was great).

Finally the new series aired here on Sci-Fi. I loved it. But alas I have to wait until next Friday to see the second episode. Is there any way to see the episodes here after they have aired in England so that I don't have to wait and not have to stay 3 weeks behind you lucky bastards who can see the episodes as they air.

@Bendersfan1221

If you go on youtube around 11pm the night Doctor Who is shown and search "DW -insert ep.title here-" you can usually find it. That's how I watch it.

I've never been so happy to be English - I couldn't cope with 'tubing all this new Doctor stuff.

And with my luck I bet the BBC would find and delete it just before I watched the final part.

Wow I really liked the Ood episode. I really feel so sorry for them. I was amazed with the part on what they did to the baddie. That was brilliant.

Looking forward to next week's episode where Martha is back

The Ood epsides was really good. I was really, really suprised at their treatment of teh poor Ood, and I felt really sorry for them. And what they did to the guy running the whole corp... pure genious! Brilliant.

CAn't wait to see what is going to happen with Martha and why it seems like she join the military.

They are kind of funny, but I think they'll probably end up being just the tip of the iceberg. Why are they here on Earth? What do they hope to achieve? There's got to be some evil mastermind at work here.

Additional 3/5/08:

Sontar? Ha!

Next week's episode has the potential to either be freakin' awesome or destroy the foundation of one of my childhood icons.

Right now I'm feeling rather optimistic. Which is good.

Next week's episode does look promising. I thought his daughter looked familiar, a quick check on IMDb revealed her to be Abigail Nixon from The Bill which I haven't watched in years.

I have to agree with Xanfor that the potential for disaster is obvious. But to be honest, I think maybe shifting some paradigms and revolutionising outside the box might be the best thing that could happen to the show.

Fingers crossed.

I am extremely anxious for this episode. As it's been said that this episode will "drastically change the Doctor"

Connected to that, I stumbled across potential spoilers for the rest of the season. Urgh.

Oh, and this week's episode looks good. A token mention of the rest of Doctor's family would be loverly.

I have finally re-caught up on the episodes. Sontaran Stratagem wasn't the best IMO.

This weeks episode looks like it's gonna be good but looks can be very deceiving. *Crosses everything that can be crossed and knocks on wood.*

Other than that I thought it was very well handled and despite my fears, I actually liked the character of Genny.
