I really liked this ep. I am young enough to have seen some of the Tom Baker eps, but all I really remember is a man in a really long scarf and being absolutely terrified. So, for me to feel a connection to Sarah Jane & K-9 is a testament to the talent of the people on screen.
There were dsome great lines in this ep. Award for most intense was the pool scene where the doctor talks about being old & not giving more than the one chance (shiver). Award for the one most likely to make you laugh till milk comes out your nose has to go to Mickey, "I'm their man in Havana, their technical support I... OH MY GOD, I'm the TIN DOG!!!!" Although,, Rose & Sarah Jane dishing about the Doctor's personality quirks was pretty hilarious, too.
Anthony Head was fantabulous, even batlike in his movements, bravo!
