    As a whole I quite like the ep. But, all those consequences and the missed meetings between Donna and the Doctor annoyed me slightly... It was funny though. And I couldn't stop saying that the Adipose were really cute. And wow, Rose. Just one second before she turned around I said to my brother whom I was watching it with "That looks a lot like Rose." Then it was.


    Overall 8/10

    All in all it was a good episode for the first of the season, Doctor Whos premieres always seem a bit lack luster IMO so it did well for one of those

    I've just seen the episode, or at least it was on in the room I was working on the computer in, and my chair faces the tv.

    Words fail me.

    Or rather the words don't fail me, I just can't use them because the nannynet will delete them and I'll get told off by the mods.

    That has to be the worst episode of Doctor Who I have ever seen in all the years I have watched the show. Even the terrible eps with Sylvester McCoy were better than this pile of (insert required swear word here).

    I would list what was wrong with the show, but I think the list of what was right would be easier.

    1. The music was good

    2. Um...

    If this is the level this show is going to maintain then I think it's going to lose a lot of viewers over the next few weeks.

    Not the best ep I admit, but I doubt its the worst. I can't wait for the Moffat eps meself.

    I enjoyed this episode.

    I must admit that I was dreading Donna, as I didn't like her in her Christmas episode, but I thought she was good here. I take back everything I've said about Catherine Tate joining the show.

    I thought this was a fun episode, and especially enjoyed the super nanny and her babies. I want an adipose.

    I also thought it was a good way to re-introduce us to Donna, giving us her reasons for wishing to join up with the Doctor.

    Overall, it was a fun romp, so I give it 8/10.

    I don't mind the theme tune, but it could have been better admittedly. Overall, I liked this episode. It was written to be a comedy, no doubt about it (shown especially when Donna and the Doctor are reunited and began mouthing to each other on opposite sides of the room before being caught by the intergalactic nanny, and then the little cuddly fat creatures...awwwwness, definitely going to be made into toys for the kids..)

    Well, I really enjoyed it.

    Good intro to the season, did a good job of showing the change in Donna and why she now wants to travel with the Doctor. Good mix of action (loved the window-cleaning cradle sequence!) and introspection (the Doctor's explanation of what's happened since he and Donna last met - still alone, kind of, met Martha and "ruined half her life", Rose still lost etc...). Some great light-hearted moments (adored the scene where they finally "meet" and the Doctor's bemusement as Donna tries to mime a complicated explanation of what she's doing there! ) and the Adipose were cute (though I kept expecting it to be a double-bluff and them to turn out to be vicious and eat people or something! ).

    And wow, what a shocker at the end. I never saw that coming! I knew she was back near the end of the season but foreshadowing that in the premiere?! Leaving everyone going "WTF?! How's that possible?!!" for just about the whole season?! Evil!

    Oh me too! I had a sudden feeling that something important was happening and said to hubby, "That looks a bit like... is that...?" and then she turned round and I was like, "OMG! It is!"

    Yeah, I wasn't too keen on it in VotD but it'll probably grow on me..

    I really liked it. I'm not sure if it was because those Adipose things were so cute, or if it was because I have really missed Who (nothing else to watch).

    I'm not sure about the music yet. But I'm quite sure I don't like it.

    Maybe I loved it so much because I was relieved that Catherine Tate wasn't totally awful. And I do so want her hair.

    Pity Foster is, apparently, dead. Well, you never know in Sci-fi do you? I thought she was a chilling alien and would like to have seen more of her.

    TV Donna might not be in love with the Doctor, but I'm in love with Donna

    I loved the Adipose. They seemed so friendly. I was particularly pleased to learn that the parents didn't approve of the way their offspring were being spawned, because I want the Adipose to be good creatures - the Whoniverse seems to have more bad aliens than good.

    Still, a gloriously sick way for them to be 'born'. Poor pill-popping-people. That chap who said he lost his weight at 1:10am - bless'im, he was a pet.

    I liked Bernard Cribbins turning out to be Donnas Grandad. It made the end of the episode especially sweet.

    Donna herself was splendid. I enjoyed the mouthing scene - enough mugging to be silly fun, but still plausible. I LOL'd at the hatbox. I thought what she said about going to Egypt and how her life hadn't changed and she was n't really managing to change it like she'd expected, was touching and gave her depth.

    I'd not been looking forward to the return of Rose in the finale; I found that the return of Rose 11 or 12 episodes before I'd expected it was a good deal more enjoyable than I'd have thought possible. Was she really 'there'? Did she hear a word Donna said? Why was she there? A mystery is so much better than the Doctor going looking for her.

    What's all that about the Bees then? <-- that's confused in a good way.

    I got the impression that the Adipose parents were fine with using a stage five world, and just eliminated Ms Foster to remove witness's... either one works though

    I think its a reference to the theory of Colony Collapse Disorder. Whereby if Bees disappear completely civilisation will collapse within 5 years as crops are no longer pollinated and we run out of food... how this plays into season 4 I have no idea mind

    That's how I read it as well. It wasn't that they were unhappy, they just wanted any accomplices removed and out of the picture. After all, if Foster was out, then they could claim ignorance.
    Yepp, it's blank down here.

    Cheesy episode and while Donna was less annoying then in "Runaway Bride" I still have some problems to reaslly warm up to her.

    Three hurrays for the mentioning of Martha
    50 hurrays for ROOOOOOOSE!

    but why did she look so sad and fade away. Did she find some way to contact this world from the alternate universe? I want herr back :hugs Rose:
    He's like fire, ice and rage. He's like the night, and the storm in the heart of the sun.
    He's ancient and forever. He burns at the centre of time and he can see the turn of the universe.
    And he's wonderful.

    On a side note, did anyone else like the way she fiddled with her glasses? The clacking they made just sounded 'cool' to me. And the way she folded them... she was just playing with them all the time. Made her seem more sinister...
