doctor who

That was shit in nearly every possible way. Bloody Rose was actually the best bit.

Dammit. Still need to watch and now so not looking forward to it.

Will watch anyway. *sigh*

Having now watched it, it was less bad than I was expecting.

Everyone seems to have liked it better than me. Which is possibly encouraging.

He could eat all of their brains, as far as I'm concerned. And then Martha could come in and kill him properly.

I rather enjoyed it, though there was nothing particularly new, surprising or original in it.

I might watch it again with suitable lowered expectations! Though they weren't that high in the first place...

Considering what low expectations I had of Catherine Tate, it wasn't all that bad, actually. I mean, lighten up, guys: it's only a kids' program!

*runs away*

A kids' programme indeed, I've seen more sophisticated humour in Balamory *sighs*

It is a kids' show. Always has been. Stop expecting it to be Buffy.

Family show, innit? Different beast entirely. And it can do Buffy-level stuff stupendously when it tries.

I just want all the episodes to be Blink or Dalek, really.

I hated the little jelly things and the music was dreadful, but I thought Donna (herself, not her cringeworthy family) showed surprising potential and was likable in a Sarah Jane way.

I did actually quite like Donna for the first half of the show, more than I expected. Until she met the Doctor.

What soured things for you when they got together? I was glad, at least, that we didn't get a rerun of Martha/Rose. I'm hopeful that Donna'll meet someone on their travels and go off to a new life. It'd be a positive and more traditional way for a companion to leave than we've had in the new series.

The mouthing at the windows thing - which was way too long, I thought - and then after that, they were much more bothered about each other than about the people in danger round about them. I'm glad Donna isn't in love with the Doctor, and I hope she gets a decent ending, yes.

Yeah, at one point I was thinking that they were being far too light about 6000 people getting killed...

Yep. The little doughball things might have been cute, but *they used to be people* Nobody seems remotely bothered. I don't think we ever even saw Donna properly realise what had happened to the woman who disappeared in the bathroom.

Huh?
I really liked it!

Only one plot hole as far as I could tell.

Everyone seems to have liked it! I spent the whole time going "But that's Just Stupid. Gah."

There was certainly a tinge of slapstick to it.
But somehow it didn't strike me as being as daft as, say, Gridlock (whole thing rested on flawed premise), or 42 (just dull), to pick a couple. Or even Idiot's Lantern, which was well executed, but come on, sucking people's faces off into a television???
pickwick

No, but Gridlock was executed OK if you could overlook the basic flaw. Wasn't keen on 42. I think this was trying too hard to be comedy for my liking.

I really, really enjoyed it!

Oh, I didn't actually watch it. I'm not nine.

I think nine would be a bit older than the target audience for this ep.

But I'm still hoping there might be unicorns.

I loved it. The comedy was nicely judged, the window scene timed to perfection, Miss Foster was played just right and there was a good balance between "Aw, aren't the Adipose cute!" and "Eek! aliens bursting out of stomachs!".

I had a worry when I saw Miss Foster's sonic-thing and thought, "Ah, this'll be The Rani back with her horrible experiments. How easy." But I was wrong!

Next week's looks delicious. A bit of a cross between The Daemons and The Romans perhaps.

The Adipose were really cute, but they were just invented to be cute and merchandisable, so I was refusing to acknowledge it :D

I thought Foster was a bit over the top. And then she died like a cartoon!

Well, yes, I'll give you that. I *did* expect her to start running in mid-air with *binka-binka-binka-whoosh* noises...

I actually LOVED Catherine Tate. LOVED LOVED LOVED.

She was far from my least favourite bits of the episode, actually, I was surprised!
