PARTNERS IN CRIME...
Well Doctor Who is back for the fourth installment of the action packed adventure and its better then ever. In this episode we see the return of the loud mouth bride. which translates as Donna Noble, whom the doctor has met before on Christmas 2006. Donnas character has now become a more confident and less loud companion, who seems to make sure that her views are carried out to any species of alien. Catherine's performance in the episode is light lifting and she represents the human reaction to seeing any alien creature. The main story line for this episode shows Donna trying to track down the Doctor, who himself is investing the Adipose Industries, ran by the ruthless Miss. Foster.. ( I wont give the whole story line away) The special effects for the Adipose was really an achievement for the Doctor Who production, giving the show a fresh new edge. One of the things that really touch you in this episode is the relationship between Donna and her Granddad ( Wilf) who's relationship seems really real and even heart touching... Unlike Rose and Martha, there is no love status between Donna and the Doctor, just a long lasting friendship..... With the return of a previous companion and even a glimpse of a lost one, walking fast tissue, and amazing special effects, i think that this episode deserves a 4 out 5.
FIRES OF POMPEII...
Its Donna first trip in the TARDIS, and where better place to be then Pompeii on the eve of the eruption of a Volcano! Every doctor who episode, there is a new element that we see to the Doctor, in this we see the darker side of his beliefs for how Time should be kept... and when Donna questions him about having to warn the residents of Pompeii, we see eruptions between Donna and the Doctor. This episode has breath taking effects including the Volcano eruption and the alien monsters. This is how a true doctor who episode should be, plenty of fire and explosions, tears, death and amazing monsters. Overall the episode should have a 5 out of 5!!
PLANET OF THE ODD
The odd are back! and still as evil as before.... or are they?! the last time we saw the odd was back in 2006 with Rose and the Doctor on the barren planet being sucked in by a black hole... back then we didn't find out much about the ood, and Russell T Davies was always keen to show more about the history of the Ood. In this episode we dig much deeper into the darker side of the human race, and find out what enslaved the Ood. This episode is full of emotion from all characters and is full of action from start to finish.... 4 out of 5!
WELL DONE DOCTOR WHO TEAM!
