3.0 out of 5 stars Good story, but obnoxious female lead, 7 Sep 2010
This review is from: Doctor Who: Planet of the Dead, 2009 Easter Special [DVD] (DVD)
I adore Doctor Who. I have all the DVDs, and a Tardis 4-port USB hub. I'm a fan - I have street cred! And this is the very first episode that I haven't liked.

I thought the story and production values were up to par - I just couldn't stand the female lead character. The thought of lionizing a spoiled rich girl who is stealing from a museum (i.e., the public) for fun absolutely turns my stomach. Ugh. I'm astonished that I'm the only person who found that offensive. Even my husband just shrugged when my feathers went into full ruffle mode.

Did I miss something about her character? What was redeeming or even interesting about her? I really am very confused. She certainly wasn't Robin Hood - she was just spoiled, entitled, rich, greedy and destructive. I think the world has enough of that already.
