Starts in five minutes.

Cracking episode, just as I was beginning to lose interest. Seems to have divided peoples opinions though. And Strax is the best thing ever.

Have to say, this is yet another episode that would have benefited from being a 2 parter.

Two bits that stand out for me - the Doc reminiscing "trying to get a gobby Australian to Heathrow", and Jenny doing her Emma Peel routine. Pity Mrs Gillyflower wasn't present to comment on it. :lol:

Another average episode. This series just isn't grabbing me at all for some reason. Only one decent episode so far.

Just a bit rushed (as shown by the flashback of how he became the monster). A tad throw away in that there never seemed to be any peril at all and the ending. OMG the bloody kids want to come along, how awful.

Children should only be present in Doctor Who if they're being eaten by humanoid bats, have a gas mask morphed with their face, or crashing a spacehip into prehistoric Earth.

The Ice Warrior one. And even that wasn't stellar, just good.

Okay, the second is Empty Child/Doctor Dances and the third is Adric's death, but what's the first one... School reunion?

Oh, god yeah. Tennant's first reaction seeing Lis... I think it was about a quarter acting. ;)

As opposed to his reaction to seeing Peter Davison, which was about 1% acting?

Or his regeneration scene, which seemed to be 0% acting. :P
